In other news, Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) say he won't support the Senate GOP's Deathcare bill because of the Medicaid cuts. The odds of him of actually sticking to that are 50/50.

Meanwhile, a judge has fined Kris "Papers Please" Kobach $1,000 for lying about the contents of the anti-immigration crackdown plan he presented to Trump.

Finally, here's Schwarzenegger and "great leader" French President Emmanuel Macron very amusingly talking about making the planet "great again."

Here are a couple other stories I didn't get to this week:

Six people resigned from Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) because they believe Trump "simply does not care" about it.

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn did not disclose his lobbying for a Saudi-Russian nuclear energy deal. That's three countries (Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia) Flynn was lobbying for on the side.

The FBI reportedly fired Sebastian Gorka last year because his lectures on counterterrorism were really just foaming-at-the-mouth rants about Islam.

Gorka told attendees at the Joint Terrorism Operations Course, an introductory-level class for participants in the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, that all Muslims adhere to Sharia law, which he said is in conflict with the U.S. Constitution and American democratic values. Officials familiar with his lecture said Gorka taught law-enforcement officials there is no such thing as mainstream Muslims—only those radicalized and those soon to be radicalized.

A judge has ruled that a lawsuit against a private immigrant detention company can proceed. Former detainees say inmates are forced to do jobs for $1 per day, enabling the company to skimp on hiring and rake in profits.

One of two jurors who dissented in the Bill Cosby rape case says he didn't trust Andrea Constand because she was asking for it.

“She was well-coached,” he said of Constand’s two days on the witness stand. “Let’s face it: She went up to his house with a bare midriff and incense and bath salts. What the heck?”


Now, I'm going to go sleep until Monday. Have a good weekend.

    I like Elle King’s music. Almost makes up for the douche bag her father is.

    It’s not the $1000 fine that will hurt Kris Kobach the most:

    Although conduct resulting in the imposition of sanctions typically has a negative, but short-term, financial impact on counsel or his client, it usually has a much more sustained impact on the reputation of counsel—both among judicial officers and the practicing bar.

    In other words, no federal court (or lawyer) will likely give Kobach the benefit of any doubt from now on, because he blatantly lied in this case.

    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.

    Michael Flynn was lobbying for a nuclear deal on behalf of the Saudi gov’t and yet we have not heard a peep out of the trolls who fear mongered the living hell out of the Iran nuclear treaty. I’m shocked (Not really).

    What Ash. Nothing at all about John Oliver verbally eviscerating head of Murray Energy and living piece of shit Bob Murray this past week on his main story from the latest Last Week Tonight? And Murray eventually suing Oliver and HBO because he’s a crybaby bully who doesn’t like people pointing out what a horrible excuse of a human being he is? I would have thought you’d be all over this, given how you’ve shown us how big a piece of shit Murray has been all these years.

      Sometimes there’s just too much shit. Actually, there’s almost always too much shit under Trump. I just didn’t get to it. But as you point out, I think my work here is done. Bob Murray is scum.
