David Waldman brings us the weekend!

Oh, wait no it’s Thursday. Maybe we can call it the weekend and get Donald out to the links a little early, he’s done enough this week.

David J. Shulkin learned that having an independent opinion on privatizing the Department of Veterans Affairs will get you tweet-canned just as sure as having an independent opinion on Russia. As Trump has decided to shop TV for his cabinet picks, he knows Ronny Jackson has obviously been in line for something, so it might as well be this.

Greg Dworkin tells us that even as things fall apart, the Parkland kids have held it together. Laura Ingraham thought she could cyberbully David Hogg like she has others, but it doesn’t look like it will work this time.

David French is wrong in every way about guns, but figures that if he gunsplains that in enough detail he’s won the argument. French’s logic is full of holes, but Greg explains how Swiss cheese might be the solution to gun control.

David and Greg analyze the gritty details of Trump’s approval ratings to see two constants for 2018: Democratic determination, and Trump disapproval. Now, if we can only combine those two energies. It is time that Progressive ideas stand on our responsibility to make them happen rather than what other of our needs must be sacrificed.

Trump, and his attorney, and his attorney’s attorney keep backing out of traps into other traps.
