Wonketariat, you’re going to want to hold onto your butts this morning! Last night the hardcore evil trolls emerged from their caves in Donald Trump’s brain, but ‘Yr Wonket is here to call them out. Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today!

By now you’ve heard that Trump defended Nazis, white nationalists, and other hate groups yesterday, but if you haven’t, here’s the transcript.

White supremacists are now praising Trump’s presser that attempted to shift blame for the events of Charlottesville onto everyone but the KKK and neo-Nazis.

After defending Nazis and the KKK, Trump decided to promote “his” winery in Charlottesville, which is actually Eric Trump’s winery, and “is not owned, managed or affiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates,” according to a disclaimer on the winery’s website.

The White House talking points for Republicans in the wake of Trump’s horrific press gaggle look like what would happen if Pat Buchanan were asked to take a torchlit walk down Bad Memory Lane.

The new CBO report on killing Obamacare forecasts 5 percent of Americans will live in areas without health coverage, popular plans will rise by 20 percent, and the deficit will grow by $194 billion over a decade. TL;DR: it’ll be more expensive to deny health care for poor people than it is to keep them insured.

A federal judge denied Christopher Steele’s attempt to avoid a deposition on THE DOSSIER as part of a lawsuit brought by a Russian businessman, Aleksej Gubarev.

A Ukrainian hacker has turned himself in to the FBI in fear that Russia is coming after him for knowing how Russia hacked the DNC. WHOAH if true!

Trump will begin renegotiating NAFTA today, a huge step back from his campaign promise to leave. Meanwhile, farmers and agribusinesses are still wondering what the hell he was thinking.

Hope Hicks was reported to be your new White House comms director when a reporter noticed that she updated her Twitter bio.

A number of Republicans sent rage tweets after hearing Trump’s Nazi presser; just don’t ask them to actually do anything substantial about it.

Republicans on the Hill really don’t want to go on the record about white supremacy, and they’re going out of their way not to hold hearings that could investigate domestic terrorist organizations like the KKK.

Some Democrats are calling for the removal of Confederate statues on Capitol Hill that reside in the National Statuary Hall Collection, but the decisions ultimately rests within the state legislatures.

President Bannon’s balls are on the chopping block, with one senior White House official calling him a “glory hog,” and saying he has been pissing off Stephen Miller and Julia Hahn for months.

John Curtis won the Republican primary for Jason Chaffetz’s House seat in Utah despite a ton of negative ads and Ameros spent in favor of more Tea Party friendly candidates.

Luther Strange and Crazy Judge Roy Moore will face one another in a run-off for Jeff Sessions’s Alabama Senate seat, with Moore predicting “the most negative campaign ads…by the silk-stockinged Washington elitists…”

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told a bunch of sailors that because they manned up and joined the Navy, they’ll never be “some pussy sitting on the sidelines” having deep thoughts about life, the universe, and everything.

Barack Obama’s tweet on Charlottesville is the most liked, most-retweeted tweet on Twitter ever. Oh, Bamz, we miss you.

The city of Baltimore removed Confederate statues last night after passing measures on Monday. “It’s done,” Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh stated this morning. “They needed to come down.” But where can the Nazis rally now?

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! Another Texas bathroom bill was flushed down the toilet last night after the the Texas House failed to pass the potty law in an 11th hour special session.

The UK is revealing its post-Brexit plans for trade with the EU, but EU leaders don’t care what’s on her Majesty’s secret wish list.

The DPRK is backing off its threats to attack Guam and will simply sit back and monitor “the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees.” Never knew they were Red Sox fans.

ESPN is super sorry for a segment that resembled a slave auction as opposed to a fantasy sportsball draft.

According to a new lawsuit, Corey Lewandowski scares the shit out of his neighbors, and began to make violent threats against after Lewandowski was butthurt over a land deal.

Crowdsourcing platform GoFundMe is using its banhammer on neo-Nazis trying to set up a defense fund for the Charlottesville killer.

In a Facebook rant, Pharama-bro Martin Shkreli says he could be president, and Ben Shaprio could be his Veep, Kanye West his CIA director, Julian Assange as FBI Director, and Milo Yiano-whatever a press secretary. Also, reporters will go through some kind of reprogramming, and “Defense spending will drop as I have no penis envy.” Like hell he doesn’t.

Hillary Clinton’s pastor may have plagiarized part of his new book, and we only mention this to make fun of the fact that someone thinks this is newsworthy

Tucker Carlson thinks it’s the anti-racists who are actually racist, and not the self-identifying anti-semites and white nationalists. He’s shocked that “nobody acknowledges that for some reason.”

Hannity doesn’t think we should rush to judgement on Charlottesville, since Obama always got “the facts” wrong when black people were killed.

And here’s your late night wrap-up! Stephen Colbert noted Trump’s presser got low ratingsJimmy Kimmel thinks it’s time to consider impeachmentSeth Meyers slipped in some late breaking crazytalkJames Corden put blame both sides: white supremacists and the Nazis; and Jim Jefferies reminded everyone that we don’t need statues to remember haters and bigots.

And here’s your morning Nice Time! It’s a silvered leaf langur baby!

Kick us a few Ameros, and in return we’ll continue to keep feeding you the newses!

    “After defending Nazis and the KKK, Trump decided to promote “his” winery in Charlottesville,”

    Trump said he has a house right in Charlottesville, right there in Charlottesville. The winery isn’t actually in Charlottesville, its maybe 20-30 minutes or so outside the city.

    Here’s something I haven’t seen talked about: There is a confederate cemetery on the UVa campus. Or at least there was in 2005 when I worked at UVa.

    • Me not sure

      Cemeteries are different even the traitorous dead need to be left in peace.

      • beingreleased

        I don’t disagree, but I used to walk in it (it was a quiet, shaded place on campus across from the building I worked in), and a confederate monument (and there is an obelisk monument there) always made me uncomfortable.

      To force Elaine Chao, one of his token in the cabinet, to be forced to listen to his racist rant. That she didn’t just walk out of there is just another demonstration of the cravenness of their agenda.

        • alwayspunkindrublic

          I didn’t realize “photoshop” meant cutting out an image with scissors, pasting it in place with a glue stick, then taking a picture of it.

  • Gee, Your Hair Smells Horrific

    I’d like to think this is where Republicans realize they have to jump ship because everyone can now clearly see that Trump is truly heinous . . . but honestly, I thought the same thing back when he kneed McCain in the nuts for being a POW.

    Interesting note from this NY Times piece on the cable news reaction to Trump’s speech – CBS News devoted its entire half-hour evening newscast to the Trump press conference and aftermath of Charlottesville.

    I’m trying to remember the last time when any of the “big three” networks devoted a whole half-hour of their evening news to just one story.

    “Later, the network evening newscasts ran long, unexpurgated clips of Mr. Trump’s appearance, rather than the usual short clips. CBS devoted its entire half-hour “Evening News” to the president’s comments and the aftermath of the weekend’s rioting.”

    RE tucker carlon’s “Democrats are the Real Racists!” schtick

    The wingnuts are either disingenuous or remarkably stupid (probably both given the breathtaking vapidness of their thesis) in this bullshit.

    This is just another varietal of “Both Sides Do It!” false equivalency. White supremacists are obsessed with race and anti-racists are “obsessed” with race, they say. But they seem to not understand (or give a fuck about) the different reasons why they are concerned. Supremacists are literally obsessed with race because they’re hell-bent on exterminating anybody who isn’t lily white. Being concerned about race because they are trying to help others (and not even materially damage white people in the process) is not the same thing.

    And let’s not get into the irony that they want to scold anti-racist because, according to them, racism–especially institutional racism–doesn’t exist and is totally a figment of the left’s imagination. Bbut you won’t see them telling white racists that “white genocide” is a figment of their imagination.

    Just this past week, I had two white guys happily assert that race is a not big deal and why are people even still talking about it, huh? Those things don’t matter, right?? Basically, people who can afford to not give a damn about an issue because it doesn’t negatively impact them telling other people to not be concerned. It rather strikes me as boasting about being willfully unconcerned about whether or not restaurant workers thoroughly wash their hands or not because they don’t wash their hands that good either and never had the drippy shits once, thank you very much.

        Yep there’s even something in Brooklyn(put up by the daughters) that will be coming down, 2 plaques noting a tree that was planted by Lee, near a church.

    • President in Exile Firefly

      It’s for a mass grave of captured Confederate soldiers held in a prison camp in Chicago.

      • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

        You’re correct. So I guess they built a big, beautiful monument just like all the huge monuments to Nazi war dead in France and Belgium. /S

        A small bronze plaque would be sufficient not to mention more appropriate.

        • President in Exile Firefly

          Not defending it, just explaining it.

          • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

            I knew that. My ire is for the monument, not you.

            There is also one in Alton, IL downstate. I knew about that one before because an ancestor of mine is buried there. He was a private in the Missouri militia. And I still want to see it torn down.

    Any truth to the scuttlebutt* that the late night statue removal in Baltimore was instigated by Rod Rosenstein just to piss off Trump?

    (*Scuttle butted in by me, obvs.)

      Sounds accurate, he just threatened to install ten thousand new statues. His exact words were, “We will bury Baltimore in cheap bronze! And who’s going to pay for it?…..”

    So, infrastructure. I can’t believe they tried to resurrect the infrastructure stuff and Drumpf so fucked it up. And this morning, the White House released their statement with the salient points of this infrastructure announcement and the scripted part of Drump’s speech. And my boss sent it to me first thing this morning hoping maybe we can make a push for some money for a big unfunded project we have here in the Midwest.
    I just wanted to email him back and say “I love you man, but it’s not going to happen.” Congress’ll be lucky to fix the debt ceiling now. There not getting anything else done this year, IMHO.

    I’ve been watching last night’s MSNBC programming again and having to listen to Tangerini’s comments again. I hated him before. My hatred has just notched up into triple digits. Mr. Mueller cannot go after this man enough. The NY AG cannot go after this man enough. If journalists in this country had any self-respect left, they would find as many sources as possible and begin the task of blowing up this administration by pulling out all of the skeletons. I not only want this man impeached, I want him to go to jail for corruption and treason. And I want him hit with the maximum sentence for each charge. Unfortunately, the maximum charge I want to see happen I cannot comment on here.

      In addition, I would like to see every person that voted for him psychologically evaluated and placed in a proper treatment facility. Possibly there needs to be a research commission established to study this phenomenon.

        I did say that any woman who voted for Trump after the “grab them by the pussy” tape was made public needs their head examined.

        And guess what checkbox 53% of white women voters ticked?

  • I saw those book plagiarizing headlines and wondered why in the world anyone would even mention Hillary in them.
