Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

Donald Trump was worried there, for a few minutes, in 2016. At that time, being President of the United States seemed to require a lot of work, discipline, and responsibility! Eh… it used to. Now we have executive time, executive privilege, and executive LOL,YOLO nothing matters

Well, somehow it still matters to David Waldman and us KITM listeners. The President doing nothing actually destroys everything. The Office of Special Counsel presented 17 pages of Kellyanne Conway violating the Hatch Act. Donald Trump says “Nah.” The White House says the OSC are the real racists, sexists, Hatch Act violators

The FEC chair didn’t think it had to be said that taking foreign dirt was 100% illegal. (The DOJ isn’t about to say it.) Republicans block bills requiring campaigns to say anything. Republicans would rather destroy government than to share it. The New York Times has a 5 part series on nationalists’ destruction of democracy in the European Union.

Weekend reading: How China is using capitalism as a tool to convert American economics and politics. The Gop concedes tax cuts may not pay for themselves

In news that doesn’t matter, Sarah Sanders interrupted her vacation to quit work. Bye!
