Happy Tuesday, Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today.
There’s an email that proves Trump Jr. knew about efforts by the Russian government to help Trump before he had the meeting with that sketchy mob lawyer lady.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was sent out to deny Don Jr’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, and even if it did happen, nobody should talk about it. So there!
NBC landed an interview with the mob lawyer lady, and not only does she deny any connection to the Russian government, she frames her meeting with Trump Jr., Manafort, and Prince Kushner as just another meeting with rude assholes.
“Alt-right” crazy guy Chuck C. Johnson admits that he and others helped form a “hidden oppo network” for Peter Smith, the dead guy who asked Russian hackers to look for Hillary Clinton’s murder mail.
Jared Kushner reportedly tried to secure a half-billion dollar bailout for his New York sky palace at 666 5th Ave. from a super-rich Qatari, and that’s just the edge of this rabbit hole.
Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia investigation will inevitably include a probe into social media as it attempts to track down the trolls and bots who tried to brainwash gullible idiots, olds, and irregular jerk-offs with hygiene problems.
Republicans are afraid of drowning in a tsunami of shit under CruzCare as it could tank what’s left of the Obamacare insurance markets.
Mitch McConnell says nobody will get booted off Medicaid, but WaPo is giving that three Pinocchios. (That means it’s bullshit.)
Trump asked military contractors for advice on Afghanistan, and has considered a surge utilizing contractors from DynCorp International at the suggestion of Erik Prince to avoid the appearance of boots on the ground.
Conservatives are working overtime to kill the birth control mandate in Obamacare so that all you junkie whores can no longer get your slut pills.
We only know a little about Trump’s deregulation team, and you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Officials at the General Services Administration have halted a multi-billion dollar deal to build the FBI a new headquarters because it was too expensive, despite the millions upon millions of Ameros already spent over the past decade by Maryland, Virginia, various real estate groups, and Congress to relocate the ugly, decrepit, brutalist building.
Trump’s sketchy voting omission is telling states to hold off on submitting their voter data until a Federal judge can weigh in on privacy protections, so it’s a good thing states have told them to bugger off.
The VA has “You’re Fired” 500 federal employees since Trump took office, and that’s before the new regs making it easier to remove federal workers have even taken effect.
Randal Quarles has been nominated for regulatory chief of the Federal Reserve. Quarles is a former Bushie who thinks that Dodd-Frank is mean to big banks.
The DOD wants to spend billions of Ameros for a bunch more F-35s in an apparent rebuff of Trump’s tweets to buy older, shittier, F-18 Super Hornets.
GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! The Human Rights Campaign is dropping $26 million Ameros and focusing its efforts on Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada, to push LGBQT issues ahead of the 2018 election.
The Minneapolis Police Department is trying to explain why it lied about needlessly shooting two dogs after home security footage showed the responding officer pulling his firearm without reason. Poor pupper! :(
Former Soviet Baltic states are terrified that Putin will come knocking on their door any day with tanks, and missiles, and pee hooker tapes.
A US soldier in Hawaii has been arrested for attempting to help ISIS by providing weapons training and military secrets.
There’s a twitter account that is reporting to have found new military bases inside Syria that are being used by the CIA and anti-ISIS forces. WOAH, if true.
A filthy “communist” really hurt Chris Christie’s fee-fees while Christie was blathering into the ether on a sports radio show. The caller was apparently mad that Christie had put his “fat ass” on a public beach while the state was shut down last week.
Sean Hannity defended Don Jr. in a long-winded monologue; he’ll be damned if that goddamn bitch didn’t set him up!
And here’s your morning Nice Time! Penguin Chicks!
Freedom isn’t free, but ‘Yr Wonkette is! Throw us some Ameros so things stay that way!
