Kagro in the Morning

Aug 17, 2022

Welcome to KITM! David Waldman serves up fresh crispy news today with Greg Dworkin running the takeaways window:

Liz Cheney lost her primary to old/ex pal Harriet Hageman, just another Adam Kingzinger apostate expelled from the church of Trump, except in Liz’s case people are paying attention to what she’s nailing to the church door. Sure, Liz has big plans, but other than hating Donald Trump hasn’t a lot to offer democracy and is a threat to almost everything else.

This congress and President Joe Biden have done a great job. Thanks Obama! The midterms might not be awful… Abigail Spanberger is doing well. Thanks women! GQP is slashing ads in key Senate battlegrounds as donations dry up. However, Donald is correct, the world revolves around him. Ron DeSantis knows the cure for Trump is a little Ron Desantis, but the Deep State ruined it all and raided Mar-a-Lago.

Trump wanted bigly defense attorneys but might have to lower his expectations. Is being guilty really so bad anyway? One of Donald’s previous bad lawyers, Michael Cohen, believes classified documents were Trump’s "get out of jail free" cards. Of course, the actual reason for Trump keeping the documents could be far more sinister.

Jared Kushner’s new memoir is every bit as piquant and multifaceted as the man himself, firing demand and anticipation for Ivanka and Melania’s stories.
