It’s a quiet news morning as Donald Trump flees the Samsung Secret Society to hideaway amongst the Davos illuminati. This frees you up to join the KITM Cabal of David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, and Joan McCarter for its weekly rendezvous:
The shutdown sandwich we just ate might be a big nothingburger, but it did seem to have a predominant flavor, one that we will be tasting more of in the next few weeks, and up until November. But, if we look at it just right, aren’t we actually “winning” and Trump “losing”? After all, there were plenty of tasty nuggets in the last sandwich, and many more coming up, if we merely play our cards right and get those elusive Independents. Anyhow, it’s only three weeks until the next Trump Shutdown sandwich is served, and this one could be just as tasty!
Greg tells us about a reporter who lost his voice, not figuratively, but literally.
The Kentucky school shooting is the 11th this year, and it’s January 23. It happens again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again.
Joan calls in with personal anecdotes ranging from GunFAIL to Rapture, a demand that Neil Gorsuch recuse himself and that Republicans Shut. The. Hell. Up. A provision slipped in to the CR gives Donald Trump even more power to use the intelligence community to go after his enemies.
