In other news, former GOP congressman Steve "If Babies Had Guns" Stockman has been convicted of 23 felonies including fraud and money laundering among other thing things.

Meanwhile, lawmakers in Kentucky say the tax bill they jammed through in a hurry last week accidentally repealed tax cuts for Toyota and other manufacturers.


Finally, it's possible Trump had a secret child with a former housekeeper at Trump Tower. The New Yorker first reported during the overnight hours that The National Enquirer paid a former doorman at Trump Tower to cover up a story about a secret affair and child. The Associated Press released their own report later this morning and other outlets have reported more details this evening.

We don't know if any of that's true, but I can't imagine it would surprise anyone.

Also, Trump said a thing about TPP today which I'll cover tomorrow when the whiplash wears off.

    From the cartoon: “I can no longer stand passively by…”

    Since when has Ryan been anything other than an ACTIVE enabler of Trump?

  • Ah yes, the historic role of all principled media outlets – buy up scandal stories that implicate the President and bury them.

    Sorry for suggesting the National Enquirer is a principled media outlet. Also, since when do they ever turn down a scandal story (fictional or otherwise)? Oh yeah, when it involves the orange asshole in the WH.

    Whiplash indeed.

    Every picture I see of Paul Ryan I only ever see as that picture of him with a dumbbell in hand and the spun around red baseball hat….because it’s a remarkably silly picture.

      That pic is so “bro-y” the first thing that occurs to me every time I see it is Fred Durst of Limp Biscuit fame singing “It’s All About The Nookie”.

    Regarding Ryan’s decision to not run for reelection (motivation aside)…
    good riddance.
