Greg Dworkin brings us his Wednesday institutional rot report:
Yesterday was the day Teleprompter Trump finally became president, although real Trump was there too. Trump can sell an improved economy, but not himself. The corporate world prepares for chaos if DACA isn't renewed.
You hear it here first! Greg and David coin the term “Hide-lighting” to describe Devin Nunes efforts to to obfuscate by clarifying misdirecting details. Rod Rosenstein told John Kelly releasing the memo was a horrible idea, and Christopher Wray warned Trump not to, so you know he promised to, 100 percent.
Still in a daze from covering last night’s train wreck—the figurative, not literal one, Joan McCarter stepped up to applaud Joe Kennedy III’s performance, and message last night. Paul Ryan declared himself complicit in Trump’s Russia cover-up, although he believes “What’s said in the family stays in the family”. Joan’s also pretty steamed about Butch Otter’s health care plan, although we are all getting into the same boat. America, where you still have to win the lottery to go to the doctor.
