Two thoughts from this morning

I have been reading twitter accounts that I have followed for years instead of so much MSNBC, which is horrible in the morning. My self-selected commentators are much more insightful than Tur and the gang in the morning.

Best observations so far: Cheato came out of the courtroom again this morning and claimed he's not going to testify because he's gagged. An absolute lie, one which Merchan has already straightened him out on as part of the court record. So he knows it's a lie. This should be a top story. He broke his promise to testify, and he lied about it to the press. Why don't they care? This came from Ron Filipinski, if you'd like to see more about what he has to say.

Second best observation came from Aaron Rupar. It was a pointed criticism of Sam Stein, who has been absolutely atrocious for the NYT lately. Stein has not criticized the Reich comment from Cheato at all. Guess who he has criticized. You guessed it. Joe Biden. Apparently when Joe said that the comments were wrong, it did not live up to Sam Stein's expectations.
