Welcome to today’s Greg Dworkin in the Morning show! Sure, there are holidays off from work, but there are no good days to take off from the job of documenting the atrocities, so Greg gave us an extended segment today, rounding up Monday’s top headlines.
Two big stories burned up the bulk of political Twitter’s oxygen. The first was a two-parter: Just how big of a liar is Trump is, given his ridiculous whopper about the North Korea briefing, and; why won’t “the media” say so? And if they do say so, why not say so all the time?
Most of the rest of the available bandwidth was taken up with how Trump is a bumbling idiot (or worse) in his dealings with North Korea and China, and a serial liar in his dealings with Russia and the domestic fallout from it.
From the Political Science corner: House Republicans carry ten times the risk of Dems. Generic ballot polls remain mostly constant. Even the outliers are back in line. Not that Dems have their house in order, or anything. Because that would be ridiculous.
