Yesterday, Donald Trump declared war, via Twitter, on trans people in the armed services, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders devoted several minutes of the daily White House Press briefing to a possibly fake letter from a possibly imaginary 9-year-old praising our illegitimate president.
Today, the newly installed replacement White House communications director called the White House chief of staff “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic” and suggested that White House chief strategist Steve Bannon regularly attempts autofellatio, hopefully only metaphorically. Meanwhile, Senatorial eminence gris Lindsey Graham explained that he would only vote for so-called “Skinny Repeal” of Obamacare if he could be assured it would never ever become law.
And there’s more. So basically, we’re long overdue for a politics open thread. Have at it. No MRAs, trolls, Trump fans.
Here are a few Tweets to get you caught up with
