Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

Avengers: Endgame. Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3. Kagro in the Morning.

How will you split up your time, energy and attention for maximum water cooler cred by Monday? Well, at least David Waldman gives you bathroom breaks:

North Korean post-interrogation health care might be world-class, but it’s expensive. They issued a $2 million ransom note/hospital bill to the US which we paid. That’s why hostage negotiations are so successful with this administration—for the hostage takers. (The world’s Memers let me down by not photoshopping a picture of Donald Trump handing Kim Jong Un a giant novelty check that I could link to here by press time.)

Democrats know oversight is their responsibility, they just hope you don’t.

Why won’t Twitter treat white supremacy like ISIS? Because many Republicans are white supremacists, and boy, would they pitch a fit. Donald Trump demanded Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tell him why people don’t love him more. Trump calls up Rupert Murdoch to fix his cable. Fox can’t keep advertisers, and Trump, and will have to choose.

Mar-a-Lago can’t find US workers to hire, no matter how many apply. The same corrupt people nearly killed the NRA twice, and might finally get it right this time. Did Trump’s personal lawyers violate criminal law and ethical rules enough to keep their jobs?  Bridget Kelly invites Chris Christie to share an adjoining cell.

The Russians hit the jackpot with people who were neither intelligent nor intelligence savvy. Lara Trump discovers the cause of the downfall of Germany.
