Where is Donald Trump today? Hopefully, as far away as possible. David Waldman is right here, as close your favorite media device can make him, to close out our KITM week:
Is Michael Cohen holding the collusion smoking gun? He says No! No!, but his cellphone says Yes! Yes! Playacting AG Matthew Whitaker is an Academic All-American liar. Read up on how Mark Burnett bamboozled enough people to make us all look like idiots.

Vive la différence! The Yellow Vest movement is big in France, spreading around the world, and of course will be here soon. But is that good or bad? Are they Left or Right? Is this a bandwagon to jump on or a movement to co-op? David answers all of those questions… or at least he questions all of those answers in today’s deep dig into Jacobin’s coverage.
If that wasn’t enough nuance for you, spend some time this weekend reviewing how leading a House panel on climate change is not the same as heading a House select committee on a Green New Deal.
