In other news, ABC News reports that the House Republican tax cut bill will indeed lower the cap on 401(K) savings and eliminate SALT deductions.

Meanwhile, a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that just 25 percent of people think the tax cut plan is a good idea.

Finally, Trump is privately blaming his son-in-law Jared Kushner for most of his problems now according to Vanity Fair.

Speaking to Steve Bannon on Tuesday, Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of Mike Flynn and James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment, according to a source briefed on the call. When Roger Stone recently told Trump that Kushner was giving him bad political advice, Trump agreed, according to someone familiar with the conversation. “Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history,” Nunberg said. “I’m only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress.” (The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment by deadline.)

Programming note... I'll be offline for most of the day if not the full day tomorrow. I have errands to run in the morning and I have a ticket for Thor: Ragnarok at 6 pm.

    Having read all of yesterday’s articles this am I have to get out and do something that is fun or amusing so I don’t jump off a cliff. Nunberg said. “I’m only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News: Well if fox news said it it must be true.

      Just more proof (as if we needed any) that the folks at Fox News are utterly vile and corrupt.

    President Dipshit suddenly realizing that a 36 year old slum lord was not giving him the best of political advice is hilarious even by his standards.

    Looking forward to Thor: Ragnarok.

      Trump didn’t realize that. He’s incapable to recognizing whether anyone is competent or not. Loyalty to him is the only thing he recognizes.

      What he did realize was that something was being criticized and so he did the only thing he is capable of: Utterly refuse to believe he could possibly have screwed up and throw someone he previously effusively praised under the bus.

      Trump’s belief in loyalty is striktly one way.
