David Waldman’s College of KITM Knowledge is open, and class is in session. 

That’s right, Trump’s wrong. Donald will never learn, but the US isn’t waiting around for him to be less ignorant. Even the Wall Street Journal says so.

Of course, neither Donald Trump nor his followers read the WSJ. Michigan votes today under the threat of violence. The entire electoral college is voting under the threat of violence. Proud Boys put on their mom’s skirts, but for safety’s sake might’ve put her knee pads on as well, when they went all stabby in DC last night. Really, it’s just a good idea to stay away from those assholes.

Keep in mind that there are still plenty of Republicans that did know better, that also tried to topple democracy. Newt Gingrich lost his dog whistle, and Ted Cruz can’t spell paradise, but they aren’t complete idiots and shouldn’t be treated as such. Even Rand Paul isn’t as dumb as Trump thinks he is. Trump’s judges didn’t save him because they aren’t Trump’s judges, and they have job security now. There are maybe 10 saps nationwide that really believe the election was stolen and even other Republicans laugh at them.

Russians have been laughing for years, and have been really tickled since they hacked into virtually every military and government agency.

Dr. Greg Dworkin assures Joseph Epstein and Wall Street Journal  that being a doctor isn’t just a guy thing, although there’s also bound to be some grumbling about incoming Senator Reverend Dr. Raphael Warnock for some reason, as well. If Georgian Republicans stay at each other’s throats Jon Ossoff could make it a sweep.

People are getting vaccinated. Some of the right ones, and certainly a lot of the wrong ones. The White House will need a deep cleaning soon, although your house, not so much.

It took 106 years, but Cleveland’s baseball team is finally doing the right thing, maybe going with something a bit more traditional.

David teaches us some manners. Actually just “manner”. It’s just that simple and just that nuanced.
