On KITM today, it takes David Waldman and Greg Dworkin to pull us over the mid-week month-end double hump:
To sum up the big news of today, FPOTUS’s demand for a special master was met with a filing by the DOJ revealing the breadth and depth of Donald Trump's intention to steal top-secret government information and obstruct their detection and retrieval. Journalists will now pore over the document, but really, the picture already says a thousand words. Republicans knock over the water pitcher and run out of the room. Donald Trump sure is a crazy idiot, huh? Is this the long-awaited pivot point for corporate media’s understanding of what Donald Trump is all about?
MAGAs watching Mar-a-Lago go down aren’t sure they feel fear or rage but are pretty certain it’s time to start shooting. Incels in tactical gear with ARs (and Molotov cocktails!) popped up everywhere this weekend, taking everyone by surprise, because no one notices them anymore. In Oregon, a bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good guy without a gun.
Jackson, Mississippi is out of water, because compared to infrastructure, racism is a bargain. Connecticut’s most competitive House race of the midterm elections has yet another Republican attempting to Glenn Youngkin his way into a win.
