It is wholly fascinating to watch these repubs sell their souls to placate and enable trump. In any other administration, his rhetoric and past deeds would have been at the least disgraceful. Now the WSJ, you know, the Murdoch Journal, the guy who owns Fox News, is digging deeper into reports that trump and his minions (sorry, little guys) paid off a porn star not to come out publicly about her affair with Dear Leader to the tune of $130k. It gets better. Now they are tracking the money. Where's your coverage of that ADG. I'll get the popcorn.

In other trump administration racism connected news, Carl Higbie, a trump appointee, who among other things was in charge of the Peace Corps, resigned this week due to racist comments he made, some as recently as 2016. trump: making America white (and racist) again.

And in yet other news not found in the ADG, McClatchey News is reporting that Russian oligarch, Putin ally, and a figure with ties to Russian organized crime, Alexander Torshin, helped funnel money, possibly laundered, to the trump campaign through the NRA. The amount is believed to be $30 million. It was donated to trump through an arm of the NRA which is exempt from reporting campaign contributions. You know, because of Citizens United.
