It feels like we’ve just started, but here we are at the KITM hump! David Waldman asks: Remember when Barack Obama did more in 30 days than any President since FDR? After Obama got that out of the way, he went golfing. If Trump was that competent, just think of how bad we’d be screwed by now.
Greg Dworkin rounds up the enablers of Chaos that make things worse for the country. Trump hires generals because he knows it’s not in their pay grade to carry the moral compass. Donald isn’t into morals, feelings, or thinking, he just wants to be enabled. Across the nation people are meeting at townhalls to question and stop the enabling of Trump’s agenda. Greg urges us to prioritize strategies for regaining power before assembling our legislative wish lists. Trump’s supporters still support Trump—So what? Conservatives might have a different set of morals, but they still need to draw the line somewhere. The Trump presidency exists in a White Power bubble, and more people are seeing this lunacy. Sebastian Gorka is one of Trumps trusted loons, and a gunFAILer.
The Judicial branch might be the branch that saves our bacon. The Fourth Circuit comes through by upholding Maryland's Assault Weapons Ban, ruling that the Second Amendment doesn’t protect the right to assault weapons.
David takes an in-depth look at the true story of the Comey letter debacle.
Get well soon Joan McCarter!
