We lost last night—Yay! 2018 has got to start somewhere, and a Kansas loss is still great when we are heading in the right direction. Soon, it will be harder for Trump to lie his way out of upcoming elections. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin go over the election details, congratulating Daily Kos supporters for making this happen.

Donald Trump is the kind of a-hole that thinks about the upcoming miniseries depicting his presidency instead of his actual presidency. Ordering missile strikes while eating the most delicious chocolate cake might have impressed the president of ‘gina, but generally the American public remains unimpressed. Trump voters stick by him, but have the same goals as everyone, and will only forgive so long.

Well, of course there’s evidence Trump colluded with Russian intelligence. Paul Manafort picked up at least a million or so under the table.

”What have you done to make the Senate more Democratic?” is a question all Democrats should be asking.

Bill O’Reilly and his advertisers go on vacation, while they consider spending more time with their family…jk, Bill doesn’t have a family. David looks inside the old-school tabloid ‘brothel’ that gave birth to Rupert Murdoch.

Trumpcare is back and it’s still a total disaster.  Joan McCarter is back to tell us that Trump thinks Zombie Trumpcare is on track, but that's not the worst of his delusions. The Freedom Caucus and Club for Growth also are trying to kick some life into Trumpcare—again. Does Trump know his people are cooking up a tax plan that destroys Social Security? At least the Trump and Koch brothers have made nice.

Marion Correctional Institution’s computer recycling initiative a surprising success.
