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

Trump bombed a deal on DACA by reportedly calling El Salvador, Haiti and some African nations as "shithole countries." However, this morning, Trump tweeted a denial that he'd used the word "shithole." Maybe it's not one of the 100 words he knows.

CNN lost its shit in the wake of Trump calling Caucasianally Challenged Not America a "shithole," with Don Lemon throwing a Trump spox off the air, Van Jones and Jason Miller bickering about where shitholes are, and Anderson Cooper getting weepy while remembering his field trip to Haiti in 2010 after a catastrophic quake.

Over at Fox, the beautiful, blue-eyed and blonde talking heads were defending 'Murica from all the third world shitholes that keep giving us all their tired, sick and poors who don't even speak American.

Haitian-born Utah GOP Rep. Mia Love is demanding an apology from Trump, but then again, she's from a "shithole" where everyone has AIDS.

Adam Schiff is fed up and throwing down, highlighting all the ways Republicans keep fucking up the Trump-Russia investigation, and how Trump, his kids, and minions keep dodging and stonewalling the investigation.

Corey Lewandowski will skulk up to the Hill next week to chat with the House Intel Committee about Trump-Russia stuff just after Steve Bannon leaves the place reeking of cheap whiskey and farts.

Eric Trump's charity paid almost $150,000 to use Trump properties in 2016, even though he could've used them free of charge. How curious.

A sad and gin-soaked Dame Peggington Noonington is flummoxed over the media feedback loop that has allowed cartoon characters to run for the highest office in the land, and she damns them all for making politics a grand spectacle for fabulously wealthy elites like her. [Archive]

Shortly after Trump's shitposting on Twitter about Section 702 of FISA yesterday, Paul Ryan had to spend 30 minutes explaining the difference between domestic and foreign surveillance as congressional Republicans scrambled to figure out who said what on Fox and Friends during "executive time."

In yet another bizarre interview with the WSJ full of sentence fragments and half-baked thoughts, Trump stated that he has a "very good relationship" with Kim Jong-un. [Archive]

Arizona Senate candidate "Chemtrail" Kelli Ward tried to defend racist criminal and former sheriff Joe Arpaio's renewed claim that Obama's birth certificate is fake by calling Arpaio a "patriot" and a "leader" who fought the Mexican-loving law. Too bad the law won.

Trump is expected to reauthorize the Iranian nuclear deal, but he probably won't stop railing against it with bullshit and bluster.

While speaking alongside the Norwegian Prime Minister earlier this week, Trump bragged about selling a "F-52," a fancy fighter jet from the future that only exists in a video game.

A company with ties to Betsy DeVos will now be in charge of shaking down broke college students for every last penny in their pockets.

Missouri's scumbag Republican Gov. Eric Greitens is now under investigation for ALLEGEDLY trying to blackmail his then mistress.

A Florida gun manufacturer is brushing off criticism that its new ad implies shooting anti-fascist protesters by saying it didn't intend to make a political statement. Lol k.

People in Baltimore are pissed after a video was posted on social media showing hospital security guards unloading a woman at a bus stop in freezing weather wearing only a hospital gown, a practice known as "patient dumping."

The gay-hatin' former Ohio state Rep. Wesley Goodman who "You're Fired" himself after he was caught banging his secret boyfriend in his office (and whose behavior was earlier covered up by the Family Research Council) hasn't stopped sending young dudes drunken dick pics.

Trump says he canceled his visit to London because Obama was a cheapskate, however there's rumors that Trump actually canceled due to the small scale of the event, as well as a fear mass protests. Lucky for them, Madame Tussaud's unveiled its Trump statue in front of the new embassy this morning.

Here's an old story but an interesting one in light of our new tax cuts for the very rich. Norway proves an interesting case study for raising taxes on corporations and establishing socialist systems of government. For a dark, frozen country so close to the Arctic Circle, it's actually very successful and a pleasant place to live.

A Swiss group has launched a petition to bar Trump from attending the World Economic Forum in Davos by saying it's too "progressive" for someone like him. Honestly, they should just call it "classically liberal," it's what all the Max Boots are going with these days.

Late this morning a cybersecurity firm suggested that Russian government hackers have been preparing to infiltrate US Senate elections. It's a good thing we spent the last year setting up all those new security procedures for our elections...

Tronc is continuing to take a massive shit all over the LA Times, so the LAT Guild Organizing Committee released an email detailing why relocating the LA Times office in order to pamper executives and punish reporters is a dick move. Reporters will get "communal work tables." Execs will get a goddamn helipad.

Since Japan is a magical place that embraces super weird fetishes, there's now a cryptocurrency-themed J-Pop band that wears luchador masks. 

Because we just want you to be happy, here's Pauly Shore's impression of Stephen Miller and Vic Berger's totally bonkers take on his interview with Jake Tapper last Sunday.

This lady is doing mommyblogging recipe hubs with Mario Batali's Sexual Harassment Cinnamon Rolls. TASTE THE DISCRIMINATION!

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.
