Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.


Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson is righteously pissed at Donald Trump for treating the death of one of her constituents, Army Sgt. La David Johnson, as a chance to attack Barack Obama -- and then, only after being called out for his delaying a call to relatives at all. Early this morning, Trump called her a liar in a tweet shortly after she appeared on Morning Joe to criticize Trump's statement to Sgt. Johnson's widow. Trump reportedly told the woman "he knew what he signed up for, but when it happens, it hurts anyway," and tweeted his denial just after Fox and Friends accused Wilson of politicizing the incident. We're not going to joke about this, but here's a Go Fund Me Page for a scholarship fund for Sgt. Johnson's kids.

People are now dragging John Kelly's late son into the phone calls for fallen heroes debate. Seriously, this shit isn't funny.

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill will head to Trump's White House to have a fancy dinner with Ja-Vanka where they'll attempt to get her drunk so she'll say "Yes" to the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy. The Prince and Princess have been trying this tactic for some time, but nobody is calling them back after their dates.

John McCain SAYS he supports the Senate version of budget resolution that would allow the the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy, but that's also because nobody has actually written a bill yet.

Lindsey Graham and Rand Paul are bitching at each other like an old married couple about supporting the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy, and it's absolutely amazeballs.

Steve Mnuchin is trying to scare people into supporting the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy by threatening markets will tank if it doesn't pass, then later stating that it was an “absolute guarantee” that Trump would sign a YUGE tax bill by the end of the year.

It looks like the Murray-Alexander ACA fix is already dead after Republicans started walking away when Trump began bitching.

Trump gave the best speech to the Heritage Foundation last night, belting out timeless hits like "Merry Christmas" and "Ronald Reagan," plus freedumbs, and moar coal.

John McCain is being a grumpy old man, kicking HR McMaster and Jim Mattis to the curb, and calling Steve Doocy's kid A Idiot for asking stupid questions during a brief presser.

Deep pocketed Trump donors are looking to punch their way into establishment politics with fat wads of cash, and the Heritage Foundation is considering all sorts of people to lead their little club of lunatics, from Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts to hapless hedge fund hick JD Vance.

New FEC disclosures SHOCKINGLY show how much MOAR money people are dumping into Trump properties in an an attempt to buy favors from Trump.

David Zatezalo is Trump's nominee for the Mine Safety and Health Administration, presumably because he knows how to get foremen and workers to be "You're Fired" and accused of sexual harassment when they point out OSHA violations.

Over the weekend, a researcher on Trump's election fuckery commission was arrested for kiddie porn and "You're Fired," and now the commissioner is not only denying he is a government employee (because he was just fired), the commissioner is trying to hide a mountain of dirty shit it's tried to sweep under the rug.

Prince Kushner has "You're Hired" Charles Harder, that dickhole lawyer who Peter Thiel used to kill Gawker. Has anyone else noticed that Harder seems to show up whenever there's a sex tape involved?

ICYMI, Trump tried to take credit for ISIS "giving up," despite the fact that Iraqi and US-backed forces have been doing all the grunt work.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was talking with conservative blowhard Hugh Hewitt when she looked into her crystal ball and said Americans are "going to be begging for four more years of President Trump." GOD, NO!

Trump's White House accidentally let slip a bad infographic that alleges a lack of manufacturing jobs leads to an increase in abortions, infertility and spousal abuse. Yes, of course it's being used for the NAFTA renegotiations.

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! A generic ballot poll suggests that Democrats COULD stomp the shit out of conservatives and cranks next year in the election, BUT DON'T GET COCKY!

Steve Bannon flew to Arizona to whip his sycophants into a frenzy for GOP Senate hopeful Chemtrail Kelli Ward. He bitched about Goldman Sachs (his former employer) and the establishment Republicans who keep his whiskey dick swimming in cash.

Trump is up and tweeting this morning about James Comey in an effort to change the subject.

The great state of Maryland is suing the shit out of Betsy DeVos for trying to scuttle a rule that forced for-profit schools to be less grifty.

A city councilman in Boulder, Colorado, wants to play games with direct democracy by giving voters an app to vote on issues. If you still think this is a great idea, just look at the White House.

A Georgia GOP gubernatorial candidate, Michael Williams wants to give out bump stocks to show "solidarity with gun owners across the nation" as any talk of regulating firearms gadgets that make weapons shoot faster is "merely cheap political lip service from career politicians." Bless his heart.

Three Chicago cops involved in that United flight that saw a doctor dragged off the plane have been "You're Fired" for use of "excessive force."

Egypt has been using social media photos to stalk and arrest gay people for being gay.

Uber is being driven out of London as officials prefer cabbies with "The Knowledge" more than an app, but many also wonder if this is partly due to anti-immigrant sentiment.

American employees at Facebook and Google worked on a campaign of anti-immigrant election fuckery in in several swing states, but we're sure Zuckerberg will just deny this too.

A British guy used to be a Nazi, but then he realized that not only was he Jewish, he was also gay. Better late than never.

The neo-Nazi douchebag who organized the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally, Jason Kessler, has been arrested for doxxing an activist.

Daphne Caruana Galizia, a Maltese journalist who helped release the Panama Papers, was killed by a car bomb, and her murder is raising questions about how dangerous it is to be a reporter today.

Robbin Young. Fair use so we can all see the boob picture she sent to her 12 true loves.

Robbin Young starred in the Roger Moore masterpiece For Your Eyes Only as the seventh female lead, "Girl in Flower Shop." She also starred in a bunch of Playboys, and the DM's of a humble Romanian hacker who stole her heart. But he was not a humble Romanian hacker, he was 12 Russian military intelligence officers in a trench coat. And now Young has shared those DMs and pictures of her buzzies with the Sun, because that's the one that's fookin' classy.

See how she loved! See how Guccifer ghosted her ass! See how she loves him (them) still! See how she was all up in Seth Rich and shit! (We think Young's judgment might not be awesome.) Also she wrote this "erotic poem," and we're going to need you to read it.

And now it is time for your weekly reminder that in the Trump era, FUCKING APESHIT OUTRAGE WORKS.

On Monday, Donald Trump, the transactional president who for some godforsaken reason sees Vladimir Putin has his one true father, discussed making an Art Of The Deal with Russia that involved letting Robert Mueller interrogate the Russian spies who hacked America in 2016 (with Russian supervision, of course, in Russia) in exchange for sending Putin whichever American citizens hurt Putin's poor fragile butthurt pansy-ass feelings the past several years. One of Putin's targets is Michael McFaul, the former ambassador to Russia, whom Putin just hates. Hillary Clinton isn't on the official list yet, but give it a few weeks.

On Wednesday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders looked at reporters and told them Trump's people were considering the idea, but hadn't decided yet, because it's so hard for the Trump administration to decide how many treasons to do per week.

But hooray! The White House has decided that, after literally every American with a patriotic bone in his or her body said, "THE FUCK YOU SAY," they will not send Americans to Putin's gulag after all. The Washington Post reports:

The White House announced Trump's opposition Thursday as the Senate prepared to vote on a resolution telling the president not to honor Putin's request, which would have exposed former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul, among others, to Russian questioning.

"It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

Oh my fucking Lord, Shuckabee, did you really type that Putin's offer was "sincere," or did Donald grab the statement after you finished with it and add those words in illiterate Sharpie in the margins, along with "DOES NOT MEAN PUTIN IS NOT MY BEST FRIEND" and "NO COLLUSION"?

By the way, that resolution passed the Senate with flying colors:

WOMP WOMP, Trump! Sorry American freedom and democracy stepped all over your dick again! Guarantee it's gonna happen again! Go fuck yourself! Enjoy the 48 Big Macs you have for dinner tonight! Don't talk directly into the soccer ball Putin gave you, 'less you want it to talk back to you in Russian!

OK post over.
