Top Twitter chatter this morning: Office of Government Ethics chief Walter Shaub can’t even anymore. Podestamania is runnin’ wild, as Trump reports for his first quarterly performance review, and says bigly words to people in Poland.
Greg Dworkin wasn’t with us on the air today, but he had a number of great suggestions for discussion and weekend reading: Mike Gerson goes there. There are many reasons to fear Trump pushing us into a “clash of civilizations.” One I hadn’t thought of before is, we may be going in unarmed.
Felix Sater is back. And he’d like people to think he’s flipped on Trump, I guess. Did he? Does he think he did? Does he think he didn’t, but will end up screwing up and doing it in the end, anyway? Stay tuned.
Getting up to speed for the weekend on health care: In setting up a potential Plan B, McConnell pulls the rug out from under Republican ACA lies. But just so you don’t forget: Plan A still sucks, too. And so does Cruz. His plan, I mean.
Trump’s pretending he makes charitable donations, again.
