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


A terrorist attack in London claimed the lives of seven people this weekend, causing Prime Minister Theresa May to push for potential controversial increases in security as the U.K. heads towards elections.

Trump was up bright and early this morning to start bitching on Twitter about his Muslim ban I mean, Travel ban err...travel restrictions on Muslim-majority countries, effectively neutering his argument for the SCOTUS.

Job vacancies across the federal government are becoming a concern for law enforcement officials and emergency service personnel who are wondering what, if anything, is Donald Trump's counter-terrorism plan beyond some mean tweets.

Shortly after Trump snatched the election, Sergey Gorkov was meeting with several large US banks to push the awesomeness of Russia's state-owned bank, then met with Prince Kushner who, interestingly enough, had just met with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. I wonder what they were talking about?

Trump's white House is trying to scrub and hide information commonly used for congressional oversight, and Democrats are pissed.

President Bannon's creepy policy project has died because of his on-going slap fight with Prince Kushner and a lack of Ameros to spy monitor Mike Flynn.

Trump has applied for an extension on his 2016 taxes. MOVE ALONG! Nothing to see here, ya lookie-loos!

Trump wants privatize air traffic controllers, likely in an effort to single-handedly fuck up air travel more than Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, combined.

The CBO is estimating the cost of updating the nuclear arsenal at $1.2 trillion, and that has nuclear, finance and foreign policy specialists sitting very uncomfortably this morning.

Facebook and Twitter want to fight terrorists with robots and humans who can I.D. potential threats, and scrub hate speech from their platforms, but there's no word on whether or not they'll ban Donald Trump and the Pepe people.

The tech industry's over-hyped black sheep Trumpkin, Palmer Lucky, has partnered with Peter Thiel to create a new digital tortilla curtain on the Internet. It's not racist, it's just anti-Not-America -- and skews in favor of white people.

Two Marines were arrested at a pro-Confederate rally in North Carolina after they climbed a roof and displayed a white nationalist banner, but they maintain they were only filming counter-protesters who keep trying to out-sex all the white people in America.

Portland saw its own Nazi rally this weekend where the assholes were on full display.

Another wrestling villain is running for political office as a libertarian, but he's leaving his bad guy mask at home (for now).

The mayor of London brushed off Donald Trump's tweet because he's actually a leader who has shit to do beyond throwing out insults and threats on Twitter like a 12 year-old in desperate need of adult supervision.

Multiple Middle Eastern countries have cut off Qatar and are accusing it of financing terrorist groups like ISIS/IS/ISL/whatever.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized Saudi Arabia and threw shade at Donald Trump, essentially calling his electoral win pathetic and small. DAAMMNN!

Vladimir Putin sat down with with Megyn Kelly for a weird interview where he bitched a lot, and denied dicking with the U.S. election...again.

Somebody let Kellyanne Conway climb out of the sewer to appear on teevee again and it went about as well as every other appearance she's had so far. (It was pretty bad.)

Dame Peggington Noonington pulled over her gin-soaked horse-drawn carriage and displayed her most recent ink-stained parchment declaring Hillary Clinton to be a lie-peddling bitch with emotional problems. [Archive]

And here's your late night wrap-up! Seth Meyers and Ellie Kemper offer up some Nice Time tips; John Oliver 'splainerized the Paris Climate Accords; Chelsea Handler had some talky time with Sen. Al Franken.

And here's your morning Nice Time! A baby narrow-striped mongoose! They're from Madagascar, and currently endangered because of deforestation, but they're still hanging on!

Hey! If you liked this, then maybe give us money from the clickeys below!

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
