Trump reportedly lashing out at Mulvaney over bad press from shutdown

Is there a worse job in the world than Donald Trump’s chief of staff? Maybe Trump’s personal bathtub attendant. Or the guy who artificially inseminates zoo gorillas? I don’t know.

Elizabeth Warren is right. And she's scaring the GOP silly.

*Sigh* No, I am not endorsing Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic primaries. I have too many other people I want to hear from, like Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, and Sherrod Brown.

Why Bloomberg and Schultz are full ot sh*t

Look,I have no problem with rich people being full of shit. In fact, when you look at it generally, rich people being full of shit almost seems baked into the cake.

Michael Cohen is ready to talk. About Russia. Da. While he’s tried to put off his testimony to the House Oversight Committee because he’s afraid of the Trump mafia, he seems more than willing to give testimony to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, with the proviso that said testimony will be private.
