It’s Wednesday, but it wasn't when this episode first aired, a year ago. But back then, David Waldman remembered to invite Joan McCarter, and she remembered what they were going to talk about. Yay!
Did you know that Donald Trump was a deluded low-intelligence big-mouthed sociopath during his administration? There is new evidence supporting this in two new books out, I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year and Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency. David reads and comments on an excerpt from I Alone Can Fix It. That’s the one with Trump flirting with martial law to keep the presidency. The other one has Eric Trump picking a fight with math and Rudy Giuliani with the plan that Trump just claim he won... or was that in the first book? Which one reveals Trump wanting to execute whoever snitched about his hiding in his little bunker? Oh, that was a third book, Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost!
This is only the start on these books. There’s plenty more material out there. We are just getting to the “Stop the Steal” era! Although, we might not have the Kracken to kick around anymore, once the Eastern District of Michigan is through with their sanction hearing.
The Trump Organization isn’t sure of what you mean by “chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg”, there’s no one there by that name.
Senate Democrats and White House officials are meeting today to talk spending and revenue targets, budget resolution and reconciliation instructions. Chuck Schumer might shorten the Senate’s August break to address the bipartisan infrastructure bill, which means Republicans need to step up their delaying process. Joe Biden continues nominating a diverse slate of federal judges at a rapid pace, but that can’t fix the Supreme Court who are slated to be much worse next session. SCOTUS isn’t as bad as Donald Trump wanted them to be, and after all he did for them, too!
