Hey, another weekend, probably pleasant, not yet spent under smoking rubble in a crater. Not bad at this time as you might have pictured, or maybe exactly as bad as you pictured. Listen as David Waldman, nailing boards over his windows pell-mell, smoothly delivers another KITM:
The Trump campaign had abundant opportunities for Russian collusion at Don Jr.’s meeting, including Rinat Akhmetshin. Rinat has been described as “a Russian 'Gun-For-Hire'”, and “a Master of the Dark Arts”, so he probably catered in the nothingburgers for the event. Here is how the Trump Jr. meeting fits into the larger Putin game plan.
Donald Trump and Montgomery Burns’ lawyer Jay Sekulow didn’t have much to say, but a lot of places to say it over Sunday, so he suggested The US Secret Service vetted the meeting. The statement was believable for about a minute, then someone asked the Secret Service.
Keeping its priorities straight, the Trump administration focused on settling personal vendettas with fellow Gop member Jeff Flake.
