In other news, the NRA's Russian spy, Maria Butina, has been released from prison into ICE custody. She'll be deported to Russia soon.

Meanwhile, Trump claims that impeaching him could cause a recession.

Finally, the Trumps are looking for buyers for their hotel at the old post office in Washington.

The Trump Organization is contemplating selling its International Trump Hotel in Washington, Eric Trump told the Wall Street Journal, amid longstanding criticism that hotel serves as an improper source of profit for the President.

A real estate firm has been hired to market the hotel, Eric Trump, who serves as executive vice president for the family business, told the Journal.

“People are objecting to us making so much money on the hotel, and therefore we may be willing to sell,” he told the Journal.

Eric Trump says they're looking to sell it for ethical reasons, but it seems far more believable to me that they want to sell it for all that it's worth now because once Trump is out of office it won't be worth spit.

I also feel like Trump's talk of recession and selling the hotel are related.

Now, President Obama delivered a eulogy at the funeral service for Representative Elijah Cummings today and it was a good balm for our times.

Programming note... I'm signing off early today because I have a few important errands to take care of. Have a good weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

  • The stupid humblebrag he throws in, ““People are objecting to us making so much money on the hotel” is really irritating.

    When the impending recession hits, of course Republicans will blame it on the impeachment. It’s all they have.

    they want to sell it for all that it’s worth now because once Trump is out of office it won’t be worth spit.

    “I mean, once we can’t force people to spend money there anymore, what do you expect us to do? Run a good hotel that people would actually want to stay at?”

    But seriously, they’re clearly realizing that “once Trump is out of office” is coming up a lot faster than they thought.

      That day can’t come too soon.
