TSA agents hold protest demanding end to government shutdown at Pittsburgh airport

Well, President Coulter has vetoed @realDonaldTrump's proposal.

BREAKING: Trump offers temporary protection for people brought to U.S. illegally as children in bid to secure border wall funding and end shutdown.

Democrats were hopeful that @realDonaldTrump was finally willing to re-open government & proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border. Unfortunately, reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of previously rejected initiatives.

Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s Liberty University is a front for an unregulated, online diploma mill (around 100,000 sold each year!) and most of its revenue comes from taxpayer-funded sources. That’s why Falwell flatters Trump.

Like I said, it’s a Brett Kavanaugh factory

Lawyer alert: The Supreme Court, yesterday, decided to not take the DACA case, leaving DACA in place for at least another year Trump offering to extend DACA for a year is like me offering to not lasso the moon. He’s offering to allow something he can’t stop anyway

It is worth remembering that Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein once made a mistake, misreporting about testimony before a grand jury that hadn't actually happened.

The white noise damage of the Trump presidency is a generation of young people who see racism and bullying validated by the person in the Oval Office

Why can't Trump make deals? No one trusts him anymore

THIS leering, privileged little shit.

This is the Vietnam vet the kids from @CovCathColonels were mocking. Chanting “BUILD THAT WALL” to a Native American. This clip is VERY hard to watch, fair warning.

Students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky wearing #MAGA hats mocked an elder at the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch on the national mall. The Superintendent of Schools Diocese of Covington @supmikeclines was in DC with them. Call the Catholic school at 859-491-2247

Lanny Davis just said Michael Cohen and his family feel threatened by the Russian mob via Trump

Take it from me, this is how a gov spox says “Parts of the story are wrong and parts are right, but I can’t tell you which parts are which because it would require confirming some things or refuting with info that I don’t want to reveal (because it’s sensitive or damaging).”

Strange grownups in uniforms putting you in a cage, taking your parents away, and then forgetting who you are is literally the stuff of children's nightmares.

Nancy Pelosi: "You never give advance notice of going into a battle area. You just never do. Perhaps the President's inexperience didn't have him understand that protocol."

Cohen charge of lying to Congress could set up more from Mueller

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the special counsel is disputing BuzzFeed News’ report.

The House Intelligence Committee will hold its first bipartisan summit in years with leaders of the U.S. intelligence community, a move to repair deep partisan acrimony

W.H. spokesman Hogan Gidley is asked by Fox News three times whether Trump told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. He does not answer all three times. Via Fox.

You have to give Mueller credit—for tonight, at least, Trump’s allies and foes both cite him as a reliable source of information.
