Days 173, 174 and 175 of 1,461 (or 2,922)

  • Man, Junior straight up admitted collusion (a federal crime!) on his Twitter account, while implicating Manafort and Jared. And we’ve just learned that the Republican operative who sought Hillary’s emails committed suicide shortly after his interview. It strains credulity, but it’s all happening.
  • The timeline of Junior’s meeting with the Russians squares uncomfortably well with Trump’s campaign rhetoric last year. What did Donald Trump know, and when did he know it?
  • Charlie Pierce, as usual, says it best.
  • Meanwhile, Jared adds 100 names to his security clearance form. Pity the poor man, he must have dementia.
  • The ACA is not collapsing. Don’t believe their lies.
  • Protesters against Trumpcare are getting arrested in the U.S. Capitol. The least you can do is call your Senators.
  • Yet another failure of neoliberalism. Vote Green!
  • I don’t see why the Dems shouldn’t be shouting for Trump’s impeachment from the rooftops. More should follow Brad Sherman’s example.
  • Ruben Bolling is a national treasure. And the new “Murder on the Orient Express” also looks great.
  • I say this all the time, but until he loses his job, it must be reiterated: David Brooks is a loathsome clown and you shouldn’t let your liberal guilt trick you into reading him.
  • Politics is the only profession where total inexperience is valued. That’s bad.
  • Honestly, I’m surprised that MRAs weren’t already part of the Trump administration. But Betsy DeVos will work to correct that.
  • The clowns in Newark screwed up their anti-gentrification ordinance.
  • Welcome to the Democratic Party, good sir! I hope you stay.
  • I fondly remember the Obama administration, when the most consistent target of my ire was Silicon Valley. It’s good to know that some things don’t change.
  • Merriam-Webster is another national treasure.
  • The copy editors at The New Yorker are national treasures as well.
  • That stupid fake Einstein quote about insanity is fake and you should feel bad about using it.
  • Happy Belated National Mojito Day!
