SQUIRREL! It’s tough to stay focused with so much flitting about our metaphorical bird feeders on a daily basis... so, listen to David Waldman to differentiate your political dark-eyed juncos from those black-capped chickadees:
Donald Trump is losing his war with the media. He’s not alone. Tom Cotton was spanked in front of cameras. Kellyanne Conway needs to spend more time with her family. Louis Gohmert is hiding from the crossfire. Sebastian Gorka is going down, but with a few fights. It is happening all over the country for Republicans, whether they show up or not.
Greg Dworkin’s hope is that a couple of adults in the administration might pull them together, but that might be tough if the boss remains Trump. Just keep your steps in order: first stop the Trump agenda, then move on to more rewarding endeavours. It is good to see the press doing their jobs, and catching the most effective lies about as quickly as Trump can spew them. It is also a positive that Senators are beginning to notice that cutting Obamacare will cut funding to their states.
All of this is good news for local Democratic parties that are seeing a surge of interest.
Will David remain forever ignorant of the repercussions and implications of Milo Yiannopoulos? He’d rather not! David looks into the lessons that can be learned from Milo and his followers, before they slide back under their rocks.
