Trump’s new nicknames for political foes introduced this news cycle.

Last night’s rally stats, including how 30,000 crazed lunatics were seated in a venue that holds 5,000, and the number of times Trump’s speech included the word “me”. Also a complete list of non-words used.

Lies Trump told today (restricted to news shows three hours or more in length)

Today’s brand new explanation for/defense of illegal and/or impeachable acts.

Names of Republicans who have decided to leave office in order to spend more time with their families.

Names of WH staffers who can’t testify due to ‘executive privilege’, including janitors and coffee-boys.

Names of senior WH staffers who did testify, and are now identified as janitors and coffee-boys.

Kids Say the Darndest Things segment: Today’s dumb-ass quotes from Don Jr., Eric, Ivanka
