GOOD WHISKEY WEDNESDAY, Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today.

Trump’s White House is a category 5 shitstorm with top aides sniping at each other in the press as their respective legal teams attempt to mitigate the mess.

Donald Trump Jr. went on Hannity to plead stupidity and only continued to embarrass himself as Hannity asked “every question [he] could think of.” Which questions? All of them, Katie.

The Russian mob lawyer lady who met with Little Donnie has a fascinating list of clients that includes Russian businessmen, lobbyists, bankers and ALLEGEDLY government officials and spies. She also has a history of fighting Russian sanctions.

The GOP wants to pull back the curtain on McConnellCare tomorrow so that they can put it to a vote next week, but a number of Republicans are still terrified of being bitched out by their constituents.

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds that 40 percent of voters want congressional Republicans to keep chipping away at healthcare, 47 percent want them to just quit, 54 percent want them to work with Democrats, and 67 percent of Republicans want to continue that whole repeal and replace crap.

Lindsey Graham is working on GrahamCare, but he’s not telling anyone what it is, what’s in it, or how many people he’ll screw over.

Trump’s nominee for FBI Director Christopher Wray will face a Senate confirmation hearing today, and there are many questions

Republicans are quietly admitting they’re wasting time and tax payer dollars due to their inability to pass legislation or confirm nominees. The truth can be a bitter pill.

The House Appropriations Committee has found more than a billion Ameros to build Trump’s wall (aka: Tortilla Curtain), but it’s unlikely to make it through the Senate where everyone is focused on figuring out a way to kill Medicaid.

The Russian sanctions bill has stalled in Congress as Republicans figure out how to not piss off Trump and fuck with Senate rules, and Democrats try to paint them Republicans a rosy shade of Russian red.

Tomorrow, Betsy DeVos will meet with “men’s rights” groups to talk about what they claim is an epidemic of false rape accusations on college campuses, and to hear them bitch about red pill bullshit like repealing Title IX.

The Trump administration wants to kill the International Entrepreneur Rule so that no filthy foreigners with lots of money can immigrate to the US and start a business. Suck it, Silicon Valley!

Some Republicans are fighting Trump’s attempt to cut federal workers’ retirement benefits, which isn’t the biggest issue to defend in the grand scheme of regulatory rollback, but it’s a start.

Ted Cruz won’t respond to Trump-Russia questions with actual facts, but he will blame everything on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton so that he doesn’t have to criticize the guy who said his dad killed Kennedy.

A new dump of 3,863 nude photos and videos of female Marines was leaked on social media despite new regs geared at curbing revenge porn from/against members of the military. There’s no joke here, there’s only cowards waiting for a court-martial.

North Korea is sending its peons to work in China and Russia, leading human rights groups to accuse North Korea of slave trading. The joke here is that the UN tried to accuse and sanction North Korea for using slave labor, but Russia and China objected.

A massive chunk of ice broke of the Antarctic ice shelf, and now we all have to get new maps. Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll figure something out.

Trey Gowdy went on Fox News teevee last night to blow a hot load of steam but oddly enough, Fox’s video cuts off some of the most damning criticisms of the Trump administration, so ‘Yr Wonkette went and found that video outside. HOW BOW ‘DAH?

Poor independent journalist Jared Sexton Yates spent the past year investigating Trump-Russia, but Yates was flummoxed (FLUMMOXED!) when Little Donnie went and tweeted the proof.

Joe Scarborough went on teevee last night and announced that he is no longer a Republican

The FCC will not weed out fake comments left by anti-net neutrality lobbying groups who used stolen identities in an astro-turf campaign to skew the debate over whether or not the Internet should continue to remain free and open.

The Internet will be fucked up today in protest of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s attempt to rollback net neutrality regulations enacted under the Obama administration. There’s no joke here, this is very serious; it affects ALL OF US.

And your late night wrap-up is back! The Daily Show wonders if Trump Jr will get his name removed from his facade; Colbert can’t breathe because of that smoking gun, and then sat down with Joe Scarborough (twice); Connan O’Brien and comedian Flula Borg have a sexxxy new way to screw the environment; and Jimmy Kimmel found the trailer for the Gremlins reboot w/ Trump & Putin.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! IT’S FIONA! Yey! She grew up so fast!

HEY YOU! All the cool kids are donating their Ameros to ‘Yr Wonkette. You want to be cool, don’t you?

            I don’t think society really needs people capable of thinking critically.

      • TundraGrifter

        One of the hallmarks of the Obama Administration was to consider third- and fourth-order consequences. When it came to matters such as Russian interference in our elections, this mode of thinking might have been something of a disadvantage. Most of the time, of course, it makes a lot of sense.

    • Ghenghis McCann

      And Post Brexit the Tories are hoping to seal a trade deal with India. Thanks Trump, you’ve made them look almost competent.

    Here’s another little tidbit. Radio Sputnik is going live. After Trump’s FCC eased restrictions on foreign ownership of radio stations, Russia bought an FM station in DC. It’s an offshoot of Putin’s propaganda arm, Russia Times.

      In all fairness, Betsy Devos is also gross and despicable.

    • Oblios_Cap

      They’re obviously part of the Republican base, then.

  • Skwerl the Taco Hunter

    Tomorrow, Betsy DeVos will meet with “men’s rights” groups to talk about what they claim is an epidemic of false rape accusations on college campuses, and to hear them bitch about red pill bullshit like repealing Title IX.

    This pisses me off more than I can say. Since privacy laws prevent the release of the facts of the case, these guys can continue to play victim. “But Mom I was set up by the Liberals!” When fact is the worst punishment these fuckers will face is expulsion. No jail, no fines, just being kicked out of one college, free to attend another. FUCKERS DO NOT DESERVE MY SYMPATHY.

  • Vagenda and Pee-ara

    “I don’t mind repeating: Thank goodness this was Donald Trump and not a real-life Frank or Claire Underwood. Otherwise, we wouldn’t get to enjoy the ongoing accidental confessions of these bungling political Gumps. The more we observe the vast dumbness of what John Oliver calls “Stupid Watergate,” it’s becoming increasingly obvious there’s no way in hell this team of flailing doofuses and preening toddlers won the 2016 election without serious help from Moscow. We are also nearing the point of certainty that more than a few of them are going to prison.”

    Dear Sweet Baby Jesus, I don’t ask for much, but please let Jared, and little Donnie Jr. get hauled off to jail. I hope someone shows up with a boombox (or 2017s equivalent), and blasts the chants of “lock her up” from Trump’s political rallies, as they are led off to rich doofus jail.

  • CutterTeam

    I truly think if Fox News had been around in the 1970s, Nixon would have gotten away with all of it. We would have heard that the Watergate burglars were actually DNC plants participating in a false-flag operation with the hope of blaming it all on Nixon. We would have heard that the taping system within the White House was a product of the Deep State — holdovers from the Johnson administration who were pissed about how everything went down back in ’68. And in terms of the Republican dirty tricks operation coming to light, we would have heard that “both sides do it”, complete with a breathless recitation of a 1971 race for Dog Catcher in Pigfuck, Iowa, where the Democratic candidate said something bad about his Republican opponent.

    Oh, I almost forgot. Fuck Sean Hannity.

  • Michael Smith

    Man, that men’s rights activist thing is very strange. The one organization that she is meeting with, “SAVE,” generally lobbies colleges and universities to be suspicious of rape accusations, and its website advocates including the victim’s sexual history as fair evidence in a rape case (though SAVE’s representative claimed that he didn’t realize that was on the website and that he wasn’t aware of the organization taking that position).

    Meanwhile, the SAVE’s representative who is meeting with DeVos was apparently inspired to join SAVE because he accused a member of his fraternity of sexually assaulting him, and then he claims the frat convinced various women to lodge false sexual assault complaints against him in order to discredit his own assault complaint. And this apparently leads him to believe that people claiming to have been sexually abused need to be taken with a major grain of salt. I guess everyone other than him. Or, I guess, at least women.

      I am replacing the default text of this letter on the off-chance that someone in the FCC or Congress will actually read it.

      It’s very simple: the freedom of American citizens to communicate on the Internet – which is achieved through websites, blogs, and social media as well as email – is exactly equivalent to the ” freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble” in the First Amendment. Defeating net neutrality – allowing corporations to dictate who has what kind of access to the Internet – is an abridgement of those rights.

      Period.

      Please do the right thing, and allow American citizens to communicate, and virtually assemble, freely and equally.

      Thank you.

      She shoulda just embraced all the “criminal mastermind” bullshit and run on a platform of world domination. The GOP base would’ve loved it; the rest of us would’ve known it was just a ploy.

    From the CBC:
    ” liberals would rather dwell on these innocent meetings held by an American patriot than this story about a bear that looks like it’s doing a pole dance, demonstrating how our hyper-sexualized culture has managed to permeate even the animal kingdom. Thanks a lot, Planned Parenthood.”

    Recently a photon was sent by magic to an orbiting satellite, troops were sent to occupy a new base in Africa (the country), and Fruit Co Apple is gonna build the world’s largest black box info thingy there. That country is, of course, China.

      The ‘high hair’ thing is kind of a recurring thing in show business, I think. Bigger heads fill up the screen and are more visible from the cheap seats.

      • And more visible from space. Also too it hides the male-pattern baldness, and may be a hairpiece?

    “Vice President Pence sought to distance himself from the controversy,
    with his spokesman noting that Trump Jr.’s meeting occurred before Pence
    joined the ticket.”

    Even Mike Dense is SMRT enough to know how to act.

        It’s been so long since I’ve paid attention to the non-oldz layout that I don’t remember the differences. Didn’t non-olds screw up the posts order based on something other than post date, and maybe have some other garbage thrown in to make it load slower and be more irritating? Maybe they’ve switched us all to olds now, and done the decent thing by killing that youngs layout. Whatever it is, I’m going to continue complaining until everybody gets off my lawn/someone reassures me that it’s all going to be okay. There, there, have a biscuit.

    • irishdave3

      Your “OLDS” has been replealed but not replaced? Beautiful so beautiful…

  • Lefty Wright

    I wonder how many of those 67% of republicans that want congress to continue to work on a repeal and replace of the ACA are getting their health insurance and therefore health care through the ACA and Medicaid. I would bet that it is at least 15 to 20%. Despite the fact that the GOP has finally exposed the truth, they have no ideas or solutions that will not kick many Trumpsters off of their health insurance, this hard core group of denialists still believe Trump and the GOP will come up with some Great Deal™ that will be even better.

    The GOP has finally been called on their bluff and have clearly shown they have nothing to offer in terms of a better, cheaper, more inclusive health insurance plan, yet these people are betting their health on these documented lies. I really cannot come up with any reason for this, other than they are willing to burn their own house down if it takes the neighbor’s tool shed with it. Sticking it to the liberals is not worth dying for.

    • BeachBum

      Yup. People south of Moron-Dickson have a long and evil history of cutting off their nose to spite their face. If they can cause harm to those they don’t like, and it only costs them TWICE as much, it is still worth it to them. Now that thinking has spread to other places called Red States. I dunno, maybe “sticking it to the liberals” and their cohorts, blacks, browns, immigrants, gays, et all, is worth the risk of dying for. I myself value life, mine esp,, a wee bit more.

  • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

    The polling company had to add the word “replace” in “repeal and replace” to get that number to 67%. Congress seems to be going with just the “repeal” part. I don’t think that will work out too well for Congress.

    • Mystery_Poster

      I wonder if they phrased it Obamacare or The Affordable Care Act.

      Lots of Repubs love the ACA but hate Obamacare.

    • I don’t think it will make much difference TBH. No matter what deplorables, execrables and idiots in gerrymandered districts will return a republican congress in 2018.

    WASHINGTON

    The Russian lawyer at the center of Donald Trump Jr.’s scandal over possible collusion with Kremlin election meddlers has denied she has ties to the Russian government.

    But she threatened action by the Russian security service, the FSB, against a rights group working to expose corruption by Russian government officials, according to information in the possession of U.S. prosecutors who had been investigating a large and complex money laundering case involving Russian funds.

    The New York Times first reported over the weekend that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya met in June 2016 with Donald Trump’s son, son-in-law Jared Kushner and incoming campaign chief Paul Manafort at Trump Tower.

    In emails, an acquaintance billed the meeting as an opportunity for Trump Jr. to obtain — courtesy of the Russian government — damaging material about Hillary Clinton, his father’s Democratic rival. Trump Jr. responded excitedly: “If it’s what you say I love it,” he wrote back. The emails were released Tuesday by Trump Jr. as The New York Times was about to print them.

    This is a silly tempest in a piss pot.

    It diverts from the real and urgent struggles for decent wages, the fight against the pauperization imposed by both Democrats and Republicans, the fight to jail racist cops who kill, the fight to end the racsit ‘legal system’. Jails now house the wrong people, mostly poorer working class people victimized by the pauperization that is an increasing feature of capitalism in it’s death agony.

    Jails and prisons should be emptied and refilled with cops, landlords, rich people and the political prostitutes who service them, including crooked judges and prosecutors.
    Second, we need a series of new federal civil rights amendment guaranteeing socialized medicine, housing and education and one that guarantees the rights of women, the TLGBQ communities, people of color and immigrant workers and provides for harsh penalties and jail time for those who engage in discrimination and other forms of violence.
