Donald Trump wants a do-over—of the Iraq war, in Iran. Few of his coalition may be willing at the moment, but as long as he has his base Donald can do no wrong... sort of. As long as there are people to place the accent on the first syllable of “A-rab”, Trump will have his base. The Pentagon will let you know what’s happening over there right when they find out.

KITM is brought to you by the Arabic numeral 3: The third day of the week again brings us our Skype troika of David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter (and their dogs!)

Right at this moment, Joe Biden looks more like a winner than a loser, but so does every major Democratic candidate right down to Pete Buttigieg, who’s just getting re-started. A gay Presidential candidate would have been unthinkable… oh, about a year ago. The sun belt turns blue as Trump chases his shrinking base into shrinking states.

By the way, it looks like the failed Ukrainian/Biden scandal was all made up.

Heading into the election, Republicans pass heartbeat bills instead of flag-burning bills because today’s Republicans are much worse people. Miscarriages will be investigated like murders.

Religiously unaffiliated voters, or “nones” (“Nuns”, OTH are religiously affiliated) are becoming an increasingly powerful force in politics, as they tend to follow their moral compass rather than their preachers. Anti-vaccine rallies draw hundreds of ultra-orthodox Jews.

In between sharing heavyhearted sighs, Joan and David tried to raise each other’s spirits. Trump’s lawyers aren’t laughed out of court as they promise to return with more jokes. Steve Bullock rides in from Montana to be our President. Republicans still have no health care plan, but a couple talking points to share. Susan Collins probably feels something deeply, thinking of her Kavanaugh vote. Donald Trump proposes kicking 55,000 kids out of their homes. Mitch McConnell tears a little more out of the nation, because that is all he has left to do.

Meanwhile, aides keep ignoring Trump in hopes that he’ll forget he asked them to do that stupid thing. Usually they’re right. China will pay for tariffs when Mexico pays for the wall.
