Saving some daylight? Stock up now, you never know when you might need some.

David Waldman catches us up from the weekend. Donald Trump said the usual awful, stupid and self-centered stuff, which ends up being the least chaotic thing he could do.

Betsy DeVos wore her dunce cap on 60 Minutes. It fit her well, as it had been in the family for decades. DeVos heads back to Washington to mishandle school gun violence. As usual Trump excels at finding the exact mishandler for the job. The pediatrician that treated the Columbine Kids speaks outGreg Dworkin is a pediatrician from Newtown and has spoken out, as have others who have seen firsthand the damage these guns can do.

Greg tells us about the chaos to come, if we have any brain cells left to handle it. Ivanka Trump never cut ties with the Trump Organization, and that turned out to be a problem. Robert Mueller’s obstruction of justice case against Donald Trump will wrap soon because, duh, who doesn’t know Trump’s guilty on that one?

Why do racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic authoritarian Evangelical Christians stick with Trump, other than being racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic and authoritarian? Republicans thank the Lord and the New York Times for conservative columnists. It would be hard to look in the mirror without that thick layer of false principal-based intellectualism coating.

Is YouTube a gateway to radicalization? Yes, and that is by design, although it is turning out to be a bug not a feature.

Tomorrow—all you ever wanted to know about Super Delegates and caucuses, when Armando and Daily Kos’ Chris Reeves join KITM for a discussion of 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination rules!
