Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

Who would have thought that hump day would feel like such a low spot? Lucky for us, David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter are here to give us a hand-up out of this ditch:

Donald Trump was forced to point out that Monday’s Russia Summit happened to fall on Opposite Day, and today is Opposite-opposite Day so we are all back to… Better-than-super Day, give or take a few details. Greg is here to champion this administration... NOT! Greg even uses the word “Treason”, and so can you!

We are getting a clearer idea of what “Kompromat” means as well. The West Wing revolts, James Comey says “Vote Democratic”, thoughts and prayers go out to the Gop, but will any of them really do anything? Probably... not! Joan offers a simple test for Republican patriotism.

Supporter of Russian 2A rights, NRA shill, Russian Spy Maria Butina, enjoys taking America’s backdoor to power, the same way Evangelical Christians like to go. Republicans want a little privacy with their dark money exchanges.

Donald’s and Tucker Carlson’s heel spurs act up at even the thought of protecting NATO member Montenegro were they to decide to step under Russia’s boot again.

Trump is Russia’s, and therefore so are Trump’s assets, for instance, Brett Kavanaugh.  Russian operatives have already quoted Kavanaugh to defend against the Mueller investigation. Kavanaugh is set to put the final nail in Congress’ power to investigate Trump.

What can we do about all of this? Well, voting will help. Voting is not enough, though. Volunteer, organize, and hit back!
