In just 50 days Donald Trump won’t need to leave Trump Tower to shoot someone on 5th Avenue! Yay! In the meantime, tune into David Waldman and KITM, and we’ll discover things we need to know, things they don’t want us to know, and things no one ever knew in the first place. And remember, if you like us, you can pay us, either by… paying us, or you can try tapping the ads in our YouTube casts. What else are you going to do?

Greg Dworkin calls in, to help us figure things out. What if we “normalize” Trump and debate policy? What if we point out that Trump and his appointees aren’t really populists and there will be a Terrible Political Price to pay? (The same price that captured three branches of government?) Maybe there was a point somewhere. After all, Trump was right, the election was rigged.

It looks like the problem most in the GOP had with Obamacare was the first few syllables. Greg and David discuss how the polls have changed on healthcare recently. Trump inherits a nice economy, and appoints people to move it to the Caymans. Mnuchin is the guy that tries to take a 90 year old’s house for a 27¢ error. Mnuchin is the guy that made millions foreclosing on many, mostly with a “racial component”. And, look, he has a crooked foundation too... Sad.

But… CARRIER! A pretty good stunt, but what to do next week?

Here and there justice slowly prevails: A US District court in North Carolina threw out the current legislative district map, ruling that 28 districts were unconstitutional racial gerrymanders. And a small Trump fish gets fried, but it’s a start.
