Why do you hate America? Soon that will be impossible, once you witness the hugest small government parade in history marching down Pennsylvania Avenue! (After our Parade Official in Chief is fitted with the proper attire.)

David Waldman takes a break from asking you for money to ask you to get RadioPublic to give us money. We appreciate their intentions, business plan and apps—try them out!

For Greg Dworkin it’s the nitwits more than the ne’er do wells that concern him. The Blue Wave is looking big, and no Republican is safe. Greg discusses the new polls, and new polling. Pre-millenials don’t need to be counted, they want elected

Some conservatives have escaped the cult of Trump, but can they stay away from filling in the “R” blanks on their ballot? If Democrats want to win, they need to remind America who’s in control

The Senate reached an actual two-year budget deal, with big relief from sequestration levels. As of 2:15 EST Trump hadn’t yet taken full credit and stated how this totally vindicates him from that collusion stuff.

Joan McCarter calls in, before rushing back out to write of the very latest happenings in DC. Nancy Pelosi is still negotiating, but it looks like the Trump shutdown will not happen. After 129 days of no funding for community health centers, congress is finally doing something. Elizabeth Warren and Maxine Waters are still committed to their congressional job of oversight. Meanwhile Ivanka Trump and Marco Rubio want to take some off your Social Security to pay for your family leave. Who is “able-bodied” anyway?

A few more not-so-shocking news developments: Special interest dollars may have paid rent in Trump Tower, the Gop’s phony Uranium One scandal was “phony”, and losing Super Bowl quarterbacks are treated differently by the press, depending on their race.
