Put on more sunscreen than David Waldman, get outside and have fun! Remember to pack your earbuds though—you don’t want to miss today’s KITM:

Trumpcare is incredibly awful, astonishingly unpopular, and a failure all around. It is feared and hated coast to coast, but remains a make or break moment for Trump et al. So, how do the Republicans sell this nasty health care tax bill? Lie about it. Here are 3 lies they are using. Here’s another.

Mitch McConnell also has designed the bill to let crocodile-tear senators amend it and claim victory. Greg Dworkin is here to explain that this is precisely the reason that backchannel negotiations might be the way Obamacare is rescued. It’s why Greg whispers “Cassidy-Collins” into ears at cocktail parties. Meanwhile, the CBO score will be the topic to bring up. The CBO score will show millions will lose coverage under the Senate health care tax bill. The Medicaid cuts will hurt even more

The largest gun organizations in Connecticut are getting behind Remington to fight families of 10 Sandy Hook shooting victims.

Ivanka Trump, Senior Adviser to the President, with her own White House office, secure phone and such, tries to stay out of politics. So, when does her dad get out? Be patient, it’s coming.

The current Russia fetish on the right is about white supremacy. White supremacy has been a priority for many in the US for a long while. Six Nazi spies were executed in Washington DC and white supremacists gave them a memorial on federal land.

Russian bikers are connected to Putin. American bikers to Trump. Putin’s connected to American bikers. They are all connected to Trump.

All this, plus Rosalyn MacGregor reports on the upcoming 2118 Gubernatorial race, and the issue of a “part-time legislature”, and who stands to gain.
