One more shopping day before Valentines Day! You should be thinking of that unique gift for your SO, but instead you’re listening to KITM’s discussion of gay cake, canned goods and fruit of the poisonous tree. That’s OK, nobody loves a dummy.

David Waldman brings us Day Two of Infrastructure Week! That doesn’t really exist, so we now move on to the Trump Budget, which should never really exist. Still, the proposed budget does reveal that resentment, fear, and authoritarianism do endure. The Trump administration never liked what you were buying in line ahead of them, so they are fixing that by stepping in front of you. They are buying you a gourmet gift box, but containing what they think you deserve. They have it completely figured out—the plan is to be carried out just like Puerto Rico, for every state, every day, all year long, by hiring that one woman in Atlanta, who would also decorate your living roompick out your dress, record your next hit, and Uber your thirst.

The media was just wandering away from the Rob Porter story to cover Infrastructure Week, and now look what happened. Armando goes over the new homina homina homina coming out of the White House today. “The fruit of the poisonous tree” won’t change anything in the Russia investigation unless it is administered by a foreign agent. Julian Assange is in too much trouble for one judge to rectify. All of this segues into a discussion of a Good Guy With A Gun that no longer has a body without a bullet hole.

Here’s the truth on Devin Nunes, and Rob Porter.

Rachel from the Irreverent Testimony podcast lives right down the road from that anti-gay cake artist you’ve been hearing about, and brings us the latest on Colorado civil rights.
