We made it to Friday, Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today while we try to drown out our fear of nuclear Trumpocalypse with an obscene amount of coffee and booze.

Trump appears to be using the madman theory of nuclear deterrence as he continued to scream at North Korea on Twitter this morning, just one day after he sent the majority of the human race looking for clean underpants when he threatened The DPRK (again) after getting a military briefing on his options for igniting WWIII.

Trump’s lawyer has been spending some sleepless nights yelling at the Wall Street Journal for reporting on Robert Mueller spoiling Paul Manaforts sleepover, stating “These methods are normally found and employed in Russia not America.” Seriously, these guys would know all about Russia. [Archive]

Paul Manafort has a new team of lawyers now that the FBI is keeping him up at night. Even though he looks like a door-to-door Tupperware salesman, his bio says he specializes in tax fraud, Bank Secrecy Act violations, money laundering, mail and wire fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, civil tax litigation cases, and tax shelter litigation. [Morning Maddow]

Not only that, but Paul Manafort’s son-in-law has had some talky time with DOJ investigators about some real estate dealings he’s made with Manafort. It’s probably a good time to start placing your bets on who will snitch first.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Robert Mueller’s team of extraordinary investigators has ALSO been asking banks in Not America for Manafort’s financial records. It’s probably a good thing that someone is keeping an eye on Manafort’s money as he has a habit of forgetting about millions of Ameros.

All this new Trump-Russia stuff is bad news for Trump as his legal team scrambles to pull their heads from their own asses before they’re inevitably “You’re Fired” by Trump incompetence.

MEANWHILE, there’s a legal fight brewing involving Christopher Steele, with lawyers battling over whether or not he’ll actually be forced to testify about the contents (read: pee hooker tape) of THE DOSSIER.

Congressional investigators want to sit down with Trump’s secretary as she keeps popping up in reference to people trying to see Trump.

House Freedom Crazies plan on filing a petition to force Paul Ryan to bring up the “clean Obamacare repeal” bill during today’s pro-forma session. This one is breaking as of publishing, so we’ll get back to you on this.

Republicans are facing more #resistance at town halls over healthcare and tax reform efforts. Their pesky constituents keep reminding them that they kind of like not being dead.

That rumbling you’re starting to feel at your feet is the death rattle of the government funding bill. Congress has less than two weeks to figure out how to fund the government for another couple of months, so keep your eyes peeled for crappy riders and porktastic add-ons.

Before he was “You’re Fired,” Rich Higgins, Mike Flynn’s leftover stooge on the NSC, sent a memo trying to warn Trumpistas of a civil war — an “existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative” from “deep state’ actors, globalists, bankers, Islamists, and establishment Republicans.” Clearly this is bullshit, which you would know if you attended the last secret meeting of liberal elites. It was all about weed and single payer.

Trump is expected to nominate two of Chris Christie’s besties for judicial appointments, and one of those guys, Craig Carpenito, helped Christie squeeze through Bridgegate. With friends like these…

President Bannon has been hiding in his office and avoiding all human contact while he coordinates hitjobs on his enemies with Breitbart as if he were a boozed-out bootleg Rasputin.

Yesterday Trump changed his mind and said he will declare a “national emergency” on the opioid crisis and that the US will “spend a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money,” which sounds great if you’re the kind of person who thinks you can beat addictions by liquifying bundles of cash and injecting them directly into your bloodstream.

The lovers’ quarrel between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump is getting pretty heated as Trump continues to bitch and moan on Twitter. Wonder who’s going to be sleeping in the dog house?

Before leaving for vacation, Senate Democrats blocked the nomination of Dr. Brett Giroir for assistant secretary of health due to his lack of support for Title X money going to Planned Parenthood, and the big pharma bulge poking out of his pants.

According to some LEAKERS at Fox News, the Seth Rich thing was an editorial fuck up that got out of hand after Inspector Clouseau, Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich went apeshit.

Four top-level cybersecurity officials suddenly quit their jobs at the EPA, DHS, OPM and the Navy. The rumor mill on the Hill says it was over frustration at the stupidity of Trump & Co., but then Trump did say he was trying to downsize the government, didn’t he?

The first 65 endorsements have been announced by Run For Something, the group trying to shove young progressives and millennials into public office. YOUR MOVE, OLDS!

Trump thanked Putin for booting out 755 diplomats from Moscow in response to the passing of new sanctions “because we’re trying to cut down on payroll.” Literally.

Sebastian Gorka, the neo-Nazi, I mean, white nationalist, I mean, random ranting asshole with no discernible role in the White House, has been talking trash about Rex Tillerson, but when confronted he denied it and then carried on like he hadn’t been caught taking a shit on the carpet.

Trump’s DC trash palace and hotel has earned almost $2 million in profits, making it a hell of a lot harder to argue that Trump isn’t profiting off public office.

West Virginia turncoat Gov. Jim Justice wants to sell a 4.5 billion coal bailout as a “homeland security initiative” to protect the energy grid, a fantastic leap of statistical logic that is hilariously stupid.

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! An appellate court in San Francisco has ruled that a Silivon Valley billionaire can’t keep people off the public beach surrounding his mansion.

China is warning the US to stop patrolling the South China Sea (again) and whining about the security and sovereignty of islands it stole from Vietnam, and/or the Philippines, and/or Taiwan.

ICYMI: Dana Loesch has words from the NRA about Philando Castile, and they are not good words.

CNN has “You’re Fired” Jeffrey Lord for tweeting Nazi shit in response to some comments made by Media Matters‘ President Angelo Carusone, who just wanted his name spelled correctly.

Sounds like Michael Moore’s Broadway show is an obnoxious series of unorganized fart sniffing rants, with the Times likening it to “being stuck at Thanksgiving dinner with a garrulous, self-regarding, time-sucking uncle.”

DID YOU KNOW that there’s a Congressional Cemetery and it uses our fuzzy, four-legged friends for guards? It’s true! ‘MERICA!

Your late night news brief is on FIRE this morningStephen Colbert is kind of hoping we don’t die in a fiery inferno and had some talky time with Jim Jefferies; Jimmy Kimmel had a new drunk Donald Trump and some advice on surviving the nuclear Trumpocalypse; Seth Meyers took A Closer Look at Pence’s bullshit, and had some talky time with Sen. Tammy Duckworth.The Daily Show sent Hasan Minhaj to coal country to check out workforce alternatives; Conan O’Brien sang America (and its territories) to sleep with a lullaby; James Corden wondered who will win the war between the Tortoise and the Hair; and SNL’s Weekend Update checked in on the new bourgeois Lady Liberty.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! A baby lowland tapir!

Money is a gas, and we need your cash to to keep making all the goody goody news stuff.

    “Fire and fury” is clearly not enough, so now Trump is going to threaten to build a wall around North Korea and repeal and replace its healthcare.

    Regarding North Korea:
    (1) I’m reasonably confident that Trump’s tweets are a bluff since I really doubt he discussed it with anyone before tweeting it out. Saying we’re ready to blow everything up is different from actually being ready to blow everything up. We’re definitely not ready to invade since you actually have to get troops there and such.

    (b) If he does nuke NK, it will probably work in Trump’s favor. In the minds of most people, the NK threat will simply go away and they’ll never have to think about it again. Sure lots of people will be suffering, but the suffering we caused in Iraq and Afghanistan doesn’t bother them, so why should suffering in Korea bother them.

    • BigCSouthside

      On point A). We’ve been ready to erase NK for probably 25 years at least

      On B.). They will not give a shit. They will just be like “fuck yeah, ‘Murica we’re so tough!” Not caring that we incinerated hundreds of thousands of people.

      • Blackest Noobs

        yeah on point A….been ready for YEARS…so dumbass Prez’s comment about having shit in place is a really dumb statement….even the Celassians from Alpha Centauri Galaxy knows this shit.

    • Blackest Noobs

      it’s just really kinda fucked up that possibly twice ( that if he nukes NK) anyone ever used nuclear weapons…it was white people doing it to brown (yellow, i guess but it’s all the same, peeps of color getting shit on by whitey again) people…AGAIN.

      i mean if there were secret meetings with all the other brownies…i would be planning a week of the knives…but fortunately for whitey….even brownie people cannot get their shit together to act as one unified force.

      • From Russia with Love

        We never nuked any brown people. USA! USA! USA!

      If he does nuke them, it’s going to take a lot of them. A whole bunch of little ones along the DMZ and quite a few big ones in the interior. Not sure how China or S Korea feel about the EMP or the wayward radioactive dust that will affect them, but if it’s about to happen you might want to stock up on your Samsung requirements pronto.

      “Because my ass is located in the back of my body,” is a phrase I can imagine coming up in court proceedings concerning Trump at some point.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    Spoiler alert: the Behind the Music episode about the The Gheys’ overnight success and equally fast plummet from the Billboard Top 100 Bogeymen charts is going to be depressing. After decades of toiling away in cheap nightclubs, trying to scare a few people here and there, bam! All of sudden we were everywhere, our faces on every magazine, posing for all the top fashion photographers, on all the talk shows, and then … the Trump invasion changed everything. It swept us off the fear charts, and now we’re back to begging for gigs at Indian casinos.

    • grindstone

      Oh honey, you’re still the Bogeymen for Roy Moore and such that think that ‘Merika has been co-opted by the horrible left commies who want abominations like inclusiveness and tolerance.

        There’s a new billboard up in my town that says, “Holy matrimony is between a man and a woman.”

          • NastyBossetti

            It was very good, and I cried a few times. The sound mix seemed off, and there were a lot of points where the music was so loud I couldn’t hear the lyrics, which was very disappointing.

            When I was a wee lad I used to sit on the counter and watch Mom bake. I remember nagging and begging her for a piece of chocolate she was using for brownies or some such thing until she finally relented and gave me a piece. I never asked for baking chocolate again.

  • Ms.Moon

    Trump cannot get good lawyers if he doesn’t shut up, he will not get good lawyers because lawyers like to be actually paid and he will not have decent legal representation because he will not do these things. He also thinks he knows better than everyone so there’s that. I say he should continue on this course, it’s not like Mueller doesn’t have a veritable army of people who do excellent work in their respective fields and are doing lawyering like I’ve never seen before.

    • Joe Beese

      If it wasn’t Trump, you could almost feel sorry for him. He’s just too stupid to even protect his own venal interests.

      • Ms.Moon

        I am actually happy about this I do hope this also ensnares his enablers Pence, Ryan and McConnell. I want them all to spend a whole bunch of money on lawyers so they can keep out of the hoosegow.

        • From Russia with Love

          Or not keep out.

          • LeighBowery’sLuxuryComedy

            even better.

    • Celtic_Gnome

      I keep wondering if Trump is nonstop shitting himself these days, or if he thinks he’s going to skate on everything like he always does.

      As has been pointed out, Mueller didn’t assemble a team capable of taking out the likes of Paul Manafort or Michael Flynn. He assembled a team capable of taking out dragons.

      • Ms.Moon

        Actual League of Justice Mueller seems to be putting together his case meticulously and that is good because having all the t’s crossed and i’s dotted are the hallmarks of good lawyering and I hope it puts all the slimy traitorous members of the G.O.P. away for a long time.

    “West Virginia turncoat Gov. Jim Justice wants to sell a 4.5 billion coal bailout as a “homeland security initiative” to protect the energy grid, a fantastic leap of statistical logic that is hilariously stupid.” So what you’re telling us is that in other words, it has a shot.

  • Shalimar

    Watching MSNBC, Andy Puzder (almost Secretary of Labor) says he isn’t worried about North Korea, because we don’t know all the behind-the-scenes stuff that Trump does so it isn’t fair to judge him negatively for his rhetoric. That strikes me as dangerously ignorant.

    Trump cares about his public image. He’s reacting to Kim Jong-Un insulting him. There is no evidence Trump actually pays attention to any of the behind-the-scenes stuff that a real president would.

    • The Rain in Spain’s Therapist

      Why are we getting foreign analysis from the guy that runs Hardees??

      • Shalimar

        The guy who runs Shake Shack was unavailable?

        edit: I’m assuming it was because of the almost SoL thing, and he was the only Trump acolyte they could get for that hour. Puzder himself kept saying “I am not a foreign policy expert, but…” He was there to stroke Trump’s ego for that twice-daily positive media folder. No other reason.

        • TundraGrifter

          I’d rather listen to the guy who runs The Banana Stand.

      • HorseChestnut

        THIS! Who are these fuckers on my TV? Why is anyone paying any of them? Do we even have broadcast journalists any more?

        • Shalimar

          The scary part is when they don’t have Trump sycophants like Puzder on. MSNBC has correspondents in South Korea and Japan. They cut to them periodically, standing outside at night with the same optics CNN had in the last few days before the Gulf War started.

    • BosGrl

      Jesus fucking Christ, these people need to stop telling us to ignore his rhetoric! I’m sick of this. I don’t give a rat’s ass about Drumpf’s public image or what he is reacting to. If he doesn’t care about the people of this country more than he cares about his own fucking ego, he needs to get out.

    Re the Seth Rich propaganda at Faux:

    Rod Wheeler, a Fox News contributor and former detective hired to investigate Rich’s death on behalf of the slain man’s family, sued the network last week, claiming that quotes in the story attributed to him were fabricated, and that the whole effort had been a collaboration with the White House to advance a storyline aimed at discrediting allegations President Trump colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. (The White House has denied being involved with the story.)

    But CNN’s reporting into what happened behind the scenes at Fox News shows that Wheeler’s own actions likely played a central role. In the day leading up to the article’s publication, Wheeler went rogue. In doing so, he sent the network’s editorial process into chaos, and as a result the article was rushed to the site without undergoing the kind of editorial scrutiny it should have received.

    Emph. mine. LOL, they failed to adhere to those rigorous Fox standards.

    Now, perhaps I’m reading too much into this. But this means that Manafort terminated his relationship with WilmerHale – or vice versa, who knows? – before actually retaining new counsel. Note the statement says that Manafort is “in the process of retaining” this new firm. This isn’t a case of a functioning business switching law firms. Manafort is in the mix of a very serious and very aggressive probe in which investigators appear to be moving quickly to force his cooperation. You really wouldn’t want to be without counsel in a situation like that for more than the better part of a day.

    I’m sure Manafort will get these new folks signed up soon. But the wording of this statement suggests a less than orderly hand off.

    Everything this Queens bonehead says is stupid but the remarks regarding Putin expelling 755 American diplomats demonstrated his stupidity as if Pootie had pink-slipped these people for him. Does Dumb Tang understand that these people still have jobs at the State Department but will have a harder time collecting intelligence stateside? Hillz and Bill must have been ROTFLTAO.

      Today Sarah H said he was being sarcastic. Right, ok.

      • Pisto75666

        Surprised she didn’t say he was just making a joke. Anyone who says ‘sarcasm/joking’ in response to someone saying a terrible thing? First should learn what sarcasm/joking actually IS.

    Trump to Putin: Thank you Sir, may I have another?
    I guess it’s better than Obama’s apology tour, right?

    An army of well-paid lawyers would help the president get in front of the investigation: preparing responses to allegations before hearing about them from prosecutors or reporters, anticipating where Mueller is going, and developing a counternarrative to stymie him.

    All of that would require a cooperative client that might actually tell you stuff before the prosecutors and reporters do. Instead, I imagine these lawyers only have a client that screams “Just fix it!” at them several times a day.

    Dominic dear, Tupperware parties, door-to-door vaccuum cleaners – but point taken. To me, he looks like the manager in the sales room at the hard-sell Time Share presentation.

    Oh God. Michael Moore spent the election telling the voters of the rust belt he could understand why they wouldn’t want the icky lady when there were shiny populist white men available, but dammit, he’s going to convert the matinee crowd from Darien.

  • Hardly Ideal

    Sounds like Michael Moore’s Broadway show is an obnoxious series of unorganized fart sniffing rants, with the Times likening it to “being stuck at Thanksgiving dinner with a garrulous, self-regarding, time-sucking uncle.”

    So… just plain ol’ Michael Moore?

    “These methods are normally found and employed in Russia not America.”

    No, those methods are normally found and employed in Detroit and Baltimore and Ferguson, etc. I knew when this story first broke, the butthurt would be about law enforcement treating Manafort like a common melanin-challenged citizen.

    OT, but PLEASE check out the Google Doodle for today. It’s not even my music genre, and I loved it. Much more interactive than usual, and a lot of fun. I would permalink it if I knew how, but after today I think you can locate it by date.

    Marshall I. Goldman, who diagnosed deficiencies in Moscow’s economic policies for decades and was among the first Kremlinologists to predict the downfall of Mikhail S. Gorbachev, died on Aug. 2 in Cambridge, Mass. He was 87.

    “It’s probably a good thing that someone is keeping an eye on Manafort’s money as he has a habit of forgetting about millions of Ameros.”

    Wish I had that problem. Of course, first I would need to actually have millions of Ameros…

  • existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative”

    This makes no sense. Is he saying the threat is TO the Marxist memes?
    And if so, does that make him a pink commie libtard?

    • Beanz&Berryz

      Cosmopolitan grammatical bias. Why can’t you just hate who it seems like he’s telling you to hate!?

    • Johnnymoreno

      I thought he meant that workers should own the memes of production.

    I don’t think the madman theory works if you have TWO madmans facing off. Then it just becomes a big, extra-spicy game of ch-ch-ch-chicken.
