Hoo boy. Strap your seatbelts in, because this top one is a doozy.

Days 124 and 125: Budget and a CBO score

Apologies for the no-show yesterday! We're back today though, with a double-dose of Trumpian fuckery!
And finally, to make you feel really good, this is an in-depth report on Jared Kushner's slum-lord company. The most relevant sentence: "there is a clear pattern of Kushner Companies’ pursuing tenants over virtually any unpaid rent or broken lease — even in the numerous cases where the facts appear to be on the tenants’ side". Pursuing people who completely lack the means to fight back against incorrect legal documents is utterly vile

Day 123: More games in the Middle East

Trump's visit to the Middle East isn't going as badly as expected. Again, however, he has only been set the lowest of bars to pass.

Day 122: Diplomacy

So, Turnip is off in Israel now, and has apparently been giving some public speeches. The global consensus seems to be "could've been worse", but the bar was already set way, way, way down. I haven't found any analyses that I like yet (it is Sunday after all), so go back outside and enjoy the nice weather. Back tomorrow with news!

Day 121: Saudi Arabia

Trump is presently in Saudi Arabia. A "$110 billion deal" was apparently signed, but details are scant. Apparently they're putting on a warm welcome for Trump and his entourage. I haven't seen any other news worth reading, so go out and enjoy the warm weather!

Day 120: Under the microscope

So, Trump is off to Saudi Arabia. What are the chances he'll stay on script? I give it about a 0% chance.
I'm sorry I don't have any good news today. Have a great weekend!

Day 119: Disheartening

Things continued to get worse for the administration today.
In non-scandal news:
Plenty of other machinations happening, but as far as I can tell, these are the main actions. I'm looking forward to the weekend, just so we can have a respite from the firehose of bad news.
