Donald Trump, not the sharpest tool in the shed, sat down for yet another exclusive interview with his nemesis, The New York Times. This should produce a bit of “real news” today, so go ahead and read the excerpts to soak in the dumbness. Six months in, Trump hasn't passed a single bill of 10 he promised to pass in his first 100 days, not even TreasonCare. Trump can’t make a health care deal because he doesn’t understand health care.

Not much Gop legislation is probably a good thing, but that leaves David Waldman and KITM to explore the seamy underbelly of the Trump organization… Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze is the 8th person to pop out of the Russian collusion meeting tied to Donald Trump Jr., and might be most important in defining what happened. Did wishful thinking and conspiracy sites lead Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort to arrange the meeting? Paul Manafort owed big bucks to pro-Russia interests before he became President Donald Trump’s campaign chairmanthen he made (exactly the same number of) big bucks.  

Then there’s Dana Rohrabacher, who hooked up with Putin before it was cool. Rohrabacher’s aide was tossed under the bus over Russia connections, but that won’t be enough to cover Dana’s tracks to Moscow last year, a secret document he received, his attempt to alter sanctions legislation and to set up a virtual show trial on Capitol Hill. Dana Rohrabacher is dirty… very, very dirty.
