Today, David Waldman devotes 2 hours to delivering 5 days worth of news and information that you have only 3 days to absorb, so pay attention:
What does it say, when you read “One of the most awful things you will read about the president” and then think, “Well, it could be worse...”? The President’s attacks on Amazon are just Donald Trump’s attacks on Jeff Bezos. The United States immigration policies are Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. One white nationalist troll sitting on his bed with a computer had a bigger influence on the 2016 election than NBC News and the Drudge Report. Google and Facebook worked with Robert Mercer, and you know it wasn’t for good. Madeleine Albright, author of ”Fascism: A Warning”, warns us that it might be too late to warn us about Trump.
Back in October, Jared Kushner and Mohammed bin Salman stayed up to 4 AM braiding each other’s hair and sharing secrets, and maybe Jared’s secrets led to the some tortures and some deaths and some money to bail out Kushner’s Mark of the Beast on 5th Ave. But is that so bad? Arliss Bunny calls in to let us know this isn’t a clear-cut white ghutra vs. black ghutra narrative. Our record isn’t perfect, their intentions may not match ours, but a more woke MBS is always a good thing.
Scott Pruitt is still in his position because he is still doing the job that he was hired to do. A job that requires a bulletproof car, a bulletproof desk, and a 20-person security detail. A job that requires all of us to step aside, including any of his co-workers. A job that requires the waiving of laws and relationships, but you know some just don’t get that importance.
