David Waldman gives it all he’s got for today’s KITM. After that, we’re on our own. (Until Friday’s show.)

Yesterday, Donald Trump announced... what he has announced since the beginning of his term, that he wasn’t interested in being president, that he was taking over. That can’t be a surprise to anyone at this point, with the exception of the New York Times, and even they read the papers sometimes.

Mitch McConnell, Liz Cheney, and Mitt Romney assure us that everything’s A-OK, and as always, are not to be trusted. Lindsey Graham is fine with any decision, once he knows the fix is in.

Still, the polls are as rock steady as always… and yet increasingly better. Greg Dworkin leads us through the paradox of polling undecideds — how would anyone know if they don’t? It also helps pollsters to know what to ask. Unfortunately for Trump, red states like Georgia, Iowa and Texas still have women voting. Girl Scouts found a way to lure people to the polls. On the other hand, maybe strippers could convince even more voters to get out to the poles. Trump might be just giving up in some states. Donald should give up on any memorials, of any kind — not even his face on a gift card.

Eric Trump’s going to jail, but first he’s going to court.
