Morning Wonketariat! Here’s some of the things we may be talking about today.
The House Intel Committee sent subpoenas to FBI Director Christopher Wray and AG Jeff Sessions in hopes of getting info Trey Gowdy hopes will flush all the hooker pee from THE DOSSIER.
Trump is having second thoughts about sending all 800,000 of those poor Messicans kids back home with their free ‘Murican ed-u-kayshunz, so he’s issuing a six-month IOU if Congress doesn’t get around to it.
Right now Congress doesn’t have a clue on how to help all the Not American Dreamers, and they’re already kicking the can down the road.
SURPRISE! Conservative crazies refusing to vote for any legislation that raises the debt ceiling, even if it’s tied to aid for hurricane victims. Drowning in debt is apparently worse than actually drowning.
Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings doesn’t think people want Republicans to shut down the government over Trump’s Tortilla Curtain, but damn it, they just might try!

Some silly hippies are making the fabulous lifestyle of Steve Bannon’s money honey, Robert Mercer, hard by blocking his yacht with giant inflatable chickens. So much for those caviar kisses and champagne dreams.
Rush Limbaugh thinks all these hurricanes are a fake news conspiracy being pushed by big retail, local news, and Al Gore to scare you buying bottled water, canned goods, and batteries. He’s super cereal about that.
Let’s all take a moment to point and laugh at PULITZER PRIZE WINNER Eric Lichtblau, and how he severely screwed the pooch investigating The Mooch and Trump-Russia for CNN. HAHAHAHAHA!
Peggy Whitson is now the longest serving space lady, and she just shattered a bunch of other NASA records too! Woo, SCIENCE!
