David Waldman starts the KITM countdown to the end of Donald P. Trump’s term… What do you figure — Two weeks? Three? Anyhow, if he did quit he sure wouldn’t tell you.
Greg Dworkin reminds us that Trump is an agent of chaos. The good news is, exposing Trump’s lies delegitimizes his presidency, which who knows, could maybe slow him down eventually. Right now the propaganda is being shoveled like none has ever been before. Trump has all liars on deck, gaslighting as many as they can. The Donald’s rave reviews keep pouring in! The legend of Trump continues with a trip to CIA, where he explained intelligence agencies were Nazis, assured the CIA he meant the exact opposite and then they gave him a 5 minute standing ovation. Still, some losers are skeptical of His greatness... Someone is cheating! Trump will fix that. Right after he sends federal jack-boots into Chicago to confiscate a few firearms. All Donald wants is to enjoy his day, but sometimes people just get on his nerves.
But what if he loses his mind?
Joan McCarter tells us about everything else hitting the fan while we stare at the head crazy. Democrats demanded more information on alleged insider trading from HHS pick Tom Price, and so he gave them more lies. Mick Mulvaney, nominated to head the Office of Management and Budget, even promised to be worse. Like any of that’ll matter, as even Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown are waving them in. The Women’s March sends spines to DC, in hopes someone will use them.
Hey, wait a minute—presidential memoranda vs. executive orders. What's the difference?
