Last night Donald Trump placed a surtax on importers of Mexican goods, automakers, farmers and you as what...vengeance against Haitian refugees? Sure, why not? Maybe Donald is deal art-ing some leverage over Mexico… or Canada. Maybe this is another of his patented meeting storm-outs, always guaranteed to shake things up a bit... 

It is a little much to ask David Waldman to peer into Donald Trump’s malevolent idiocy, burning with the intensity of a thousand suns, just to tell us what he may or may not be thinking. 

Leave that to the 3, 4 and 11 dimensional chess players in Democratic Leadership to figure out. Trump might actually benefit from impeachment, but if you think this is all the plan of a criminal mastermind, Donald Trump just might be smarter than you. Trump is either dumb enough to think the courts might save him from impeachment, or smart enough to think the Mitch McConnell Court will save him from impeachment. Leonard Leo raised $250 million in dark money to fill those courts. Clarence Thomas tried to tie abortion to eugenics, but the author he sited disagrees.

The IRS has been ACORNed into submission, and gave up fighting political dark money groups. The Russians plan to sow racial discord—and violence—in the U.S. 

Wow, is there any good news? Yes, and about 15 minutes of it, prerecorded by the irreverent duo at Irreverent Testimony, listing the legislation that can happen in a blue state house, in this case Colorado’s.
