It’s Wednesday! You get a KITM with David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and, Joan McCarter! What more can you ask for? Nothing! Quit asking for stuff! We spoil you enough as it is:
Donald Trump aims his nukes at tropical storm Dorian, then Puerto Rico, then back to Dorian… all distracting him from browsing Pinterest for wall decoration ideas, and attending to that big stack of old Russian loans and future pardons on his desk.
Hey, Joe Biden is a stronger candidate than you might think, especially if you are looking at Iowa. Everybody and their mother is more electable than Donald Trump. The economy didn’t keep Trump afloat, but it might drag him down. Everyone is ready for the election to be over, but many aren’t ready to believe the results. Republicans batten down the hatches and stoke the base, mobilizing independents the hell away from them. And now, U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson will step down from office at the end of 2019, setting off a crucial 2020 election. Well, “2020 Election” might not be the term for it anymore...
David returns to Paul Manafort’s pretty successful anti-semitic smear of Ukrainian politician Yulia Tymoshenko. Manafort’s daughter couldn’t decide if her dad’s corruption would be helpful to her or not. Dad going to jail probably pushed her to “not”.
