It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! If you don’t, then wow, you should be listening to the show more often.

Whatever he’s full of, Donald Trump seems more loosely packed than we thought. David Waldman shows us that a humble man can make anyone feel taller.

Greg Dworkin rounded up the pundits and punditry: Credibility is like virginity, don’t let either of them anywhere near Donald Trump. Donald will always be a pound from obese, a day from dementia, an inch from the trigger. Don’t worry, he has good genes.

Trump’s polls are dropping a lot faster than his weight, good news for the health of the country.

Trump says he wants voter ID, he doesn’t mean, want or know what he’s talking about, but it’s a good idea.

Joan McCarter helps us figure out the looming shutdown, and more importantly—whose fault it is. The government shutdown could backfire on Republicans, but not if Republicans can help it. Republicans don’t mind trading CHIP kids for DACA kids.

Your emails, chats, photos, videos and phone calls might soon be viewed without a warrant, by people like Jeff Sessions. Democrats are one vote shy of the majority necessary to preserve net neutrality.

A lot of money changed hands just before Trump’s inauguration.

Inviting Michael Wolff to the White House seemed like such a good idea at the time.
