- In a surprise move, Trump is actually talking with the Palestinians. I'm curious what will come of this.
- More analysis of Trump's jobs claims. The Washington Post awarded him four Pinocchios, their highest rating of "bullshit".
- Apparently Trump just learnt that the US Attorneys currently in place were appointed by Obama, and summarily requested their immediate resignation (with two exceptions of fanatic loyalists). Not only that, they were told to clear out by the end of the day, which is far more abrupt than previously. I will just note that a "purge" of officials who disagree with you, as some from the right wing have called for, is typical for authoritarian regimes.
- The administration knew that Flynn was accepting money to lobby on behalf of Turkey and STILL brought him on board? Oh vey. This beggars belief.
