David Waldman reports that the Turquoise and Scarlet-chested parrot are joining the Norwegian Blue in the bleeding choir invisible—yet another triumph of the Trump AdministrationLovely plumage though!

Greg Dworkin rounds up the polls and punditry with every one of his mellifluous tones intact, as they are now captured on a professional microphone, thanks to your generous donations!

Articles continue to be written about some sad folks pinning their hopes on Trump, but but he continues to fail, because Americans hate his agenda, and it’s based on lies.

Voting to confirm Neil Gorsuch won’t end the politicization of the courts, so what will? It looks like Neil Gorsuch is a plagiarist, as if that matters to anyone.

Trumpcare keeps rising from the dead, but ends up being worse and more unpopular each time, making single payer a stronger contender by the day. Most young Americans want their healthcare to look like Obamacare. Zombie Trumpcare is even more unlikely to get through the Senate than the original.

Joan McCarter calls in to discuss and analyze supreme court procedure with David. Jeff Merkley holds the Senate floor overnight to make the case against Gorsuch nomination, and to frustrate and concern Republicans. Republicans use “budget reconciliation” to destroy everything that has ever done anything good for most of us. Oh, and Trump signed away your internet privacy.

China’s president, and our, uh, president, are meeting at Mar-a-Lago over the weekend, and Chinese national embarrassment Guo Wengui could be there... Whose money does Donald love more?

Meanwhile, look at what Trump is doing to Iraq and Syria, if you can.
