He woke up like this.

We're having a hard time picking out our favorite part of the "legal advice" well-known "lawyer" Steve Bannon is pitching to the White House, in a bid to show Donald Trump that he, Bannon, is still Trump's super pal who has his back and wants him to get away with ALL THE CRIMES. Robert Costa broke this story late Wednesday at the Washington Post, and it is just exactly what we expect from somebody who doesn't have a law degree, but who DOES have a weird episode in his history when he was involved with a house in south Florida with an acid-filled bathtub that MAYBE was used for cooking meth, or MAYBE dissolving a dead body, or MAYBE it was just an innocent thing and the only reason Steve Bannon has that beautiful complexion he has is because he adheres to a strict regimen of soaking in acid-filled bathtubs. What happens in Steve Bannon's bathtubs stays in Steve Bannon's bathtubs. (Unless it eats through the floor and into the foyer below!)

Is it STEP ONE, where Trump sets off a constitutional crisis by firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Robert Mueller investigation, even though Steve Bannon previously has said the most stupidest thing Trump has ever done was to fire James Comey from the FBI, in order to obstruct the Russia investigation? MAYBE.

Is it STEP TWO, where Trump immediately and henceforth refuses to cooperate with Robert Mueller, which will just make him look GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY? Could be!

Is it STEP THREE where he thinks he and Donald Trump can spin around in circles really fast, and that the assorted gristle flying off their crusty bodies will create a gristle hurricane that magically sprinkles all over the interviews Trump people have voluntarily given Mueller, and the evidence the White House and the Trump campaign have voluntarily handed to Mueller, thus rendering them null and void by endowing them with RETROACTIVE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE, which is actually not even a thing? That is definitely ONE of our favorite parts!


Is it STEP FIVE, which is very clearly ???????????

Is it STEP SIX, which is how Bannon wants Trump to fire Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer representing Trump in the Russia investigation, the man who is officially TRUMP'S LAST REAL LIVE ACTUAL LAWYER? (Sorry, Jay Sekulow. We mean this with kindness, but you should probably go back to defending Christian conservative dick slits from the oppression of having to bake cakes for homo-gays. It is really more your wheelhouse.)

We just cannot decide the best part of Steve Bannon's very smart idea for dissolving the Russia investigation in an acid-filled bathtub!

We don't know if Bannon has gotten to Trump yet, but Robert Costa reports his fumes are at least wafting in that direction:

Bannon’s conversations, including a meeting Tuesday night between the former strategist and Trump confidants, have so far remained through back channels.

The 64-year-old strategist has huddled in recent days — at his Capitol Hill townhouse, a Washington hotel and over the phone — with a handful of White House aides, GOP lawmakers and conservative media figures who speak frequently with Trump ...

Fabulous. Just fabulous.

We are at least glad to see nobody is pretending anymore that Trump isn't guilty as fucking sin. We're not sure Bannon's advice to "ACT AS GUILTY AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN" is the best course for the president, but then again, we're really not emotionally invested in Trump's success, so YOU DO YOU, MISTER PRESIDENT IDIOT MAN.

Couple few weeks ago, your Wonkette (me) ended up in the ER with chest pains because some dick 40-millionaire decided to sue us. It was a very stupid day!

But God loves your Wonkette best, because of our excellence in mommyblogging and jabbing bad people in the eye with this here pointy stick. And so the ACLU of West Virginia has agreed to represent us pro boner-like, for love and America and so can you.

Perhaps you are like us, and two years ago rushed to send the ACLU some canned clams to help it in its fight against every extremely crazy thing Steve Bannon was doing. And then you reupped a year later. And then the second year, well ... maybe that just hit at a time you were a little tight, or had to fix the water heater, or didn't feel like getting out your checkbook and a stamp.

If you are so moved, please join Wonkette in reupping with the national org today (and if you are able, to make it a monthly), as well as giving a one-time gift to the West Virginia chapter, since they don't seem to have a recurring option on their site.

And as always, don't forget that we, Wonkette, are ad-free, grant-free, investor-free, and funded ENTIRELY by YOU. That's staff salaries, freelancers, health care, servers, and hairbows for the baby, who frankly has a problem. The widget below funds US (not the ACLU, don't have a confuse), and we'd thank you kindly to follow the instructions if'n you haven't already.

1. Pick "just once" or "monthly."

2. Pick an amount, like say "all of the money."

3. Click "paypal" if you are paypal or "stripe" if you are not paypal.


5. Carry on with your day, and with new posts below!

Welcome to another edition of Yr Sunday Nice Things feature, where we take a break from the daily craziness so we can decompress for a little while. Today, we're going to relax with the ineffable mental calm that comes from an oddly rectangular English cow. It's really beautiful to see what can happen when people all over the internet come together to collaborate on a little art project. We call it...
