It’s Wednesday, the day David Waldman brings us the great variety of news and views that is provided by KITM’s great variety of people:

Greg Dworkin helps pick through the wreckage from the latest Stormy damage. (A calm compared to what’s blowing up on the horizon.)

There are procedural hurdles for the Robert Mueller protection bills being placed by the people predisposed to Mueller’s endangerment. Meanwhile, Republican House members hustle for leadership positions while there is something left for them to lead. The AZ legislature makes emergency moves to double-cross John McCain while they have a chance.

Mike Pompeo, possible future Secretary of State, was last month’s Dennis Rodman. Nikki Haley found out that no one is too big for Trump to throw under the bus. Nikki might feel jilted, but knows there’s other fish in the sea.

Sean Hannity, shadow consigliere/coffee boy, lawyers up in the same alleys as Trump. Sean is now discovering how hazardous sunlight is.

Donald Trump just doesn’t know how to quit James, or Vlad, but Michael sure gets the slow fade. Armando recommends the latest Trump, Inc. podcast which uncovers a ton of Michael Cohen scuzzery leading to his temporary embrace and predestined discardment by Donald Trump.

The more Trump goes to Hell, the more white evangelicals love Trump. Every day less people love white evangelicals.

Greg continues to advocate a reduction in our conservative sharp stick-poking, outside of odd-numbered years of course.

Joan McCarter replays the slow-motion demolition and collapse of our government and society:

McConnell and Senate Republicans are working out a way to nullify regulations they don't like, possibly going back decades. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy bribes his way to a promotion to speaker. Paul Ryan promised the Freedom Caucus they could have a meaningless vote on a balanced budget amendment, because their base likes meaningless votes. House and Senate Republicans don’t want to undo the Omnibus bill, but Mick Mulvaney and Donald Trump do, so that’s happening, and a bunch of nobodies take a swing at some somebodies to make a name for themselves.

Starbucks makes a show of changing, or is changing. Their actions will decide.

This year’s Ivanka #TaxDay lie was preceded by last year’s Ivanka #TaxDay lie. Trumps do that.
