David Waldman and Greg Dworkin present today’s KITM with flies up front and forward facing, as you’ve come to expect.
Mo Brooks has finally been served with a lawsuit filed by Eric Swalwell. Well, Mo was still hiding, but his wife, who happens to be of suitable age and discretion, took it for him. Brooks might’ve not been aware of that convention, as he was also unaware that he shouldn’t post his Gmail password and pin numbers. Mo is no ordinary stooge, but is actually paid a lot to know better.
The former guy kicked off a new season of The Ex-Presidential Apprentice this weekend, along with simultaneous presidential, congressional and House Speaker campaigns, demonstrating there’s no one in American politics who could ever fill Trump’s pants like he can. It’s a load probably few in history could carry, in fact. Many Republicans are lining up with their pails to lend a hand, however.
When will democracy die? Two years from now? Four? Will the Democrat’s effort be not enough… or even less? Donald Trump loves Joe Manchin as much as he used to love Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell in turn learned to love the Insurrection. Many hoped and planned for an insurrection before January 6th. The Militias were just waiting for Trump’s word, but should know Donald never commits to anything. Trump expects that you’ll simply assume that he’s determined to strike in the US, and act accordingly.
We aren’t the only ones in the world with a Trump. Benjamin Netanyahu hasn’t started wearing his pants backwards, but he’s starting to feel a “deep state”, and has witnessed several greatest frauds in history as well. January 6th style violence isn’t far away, and Israel has right wing militants already in the streets, just waiting for the word...
Then there’s Jair Bolsonaro.
