Wednesday is always Hump-day on KITM. Let’s see if you can climb this mountain of information and links that David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, and Joan McCarter have brought us today:
Greg warns us not to get gaslighted by Trump and his allies, and polls are showing most of us might be avoiding that. Trump and Republicans focus on their core “Putin” supporters. Maybe earmarks would help?
Donald Trump reboots the “Ronald Reagan, Mastermind” sketch from Saturday Night Live, except in Donald’s version he’s even dumber behind closed doors. Yesterday was the day Donald trump finally became TV president. Trump was normalized again by the press, but why stop now when that’s where they excel? The Fusion GPS transcripts demonstrate the downfall of the press, the corruption of Trump, the treachery of Republicans, and blows a lot of right wing spin pumped to you by the New York Times and others. Trump’s agreement on the need for a clean dreamer bill is left on the cutting room floor.
Greg suggests we brush up on modern American politics by watching old British comedy.
“Neoliberal” is what you call the person that’s not enough like you.
Inexperienced evil is pushed into one end of Washington as experienced evil drops out of the other end. Darrell Issa joins the retreat. Donald Trump won’t let unqualified court picks get away just because they are “not qualified”.
