In other news, Trump casually blamed Cuba for the mysterious, unexplained "sonic attacks" during a press conference this afternoon. No one else has officially made that charge since the source of the attacks is still unknown.

Meanwhile, Maltese investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, who reported on fellow countrymen exposed by the so-called "Panama Papers," was assassinated in a car bombing last night.

Finally, ProPublica appears to have caught the White House and Secret Service lying. Again.

Last month, the Trump administration said it could not comply with a court order to disclose the names of people who met with the president at Mar-a-Lago in part because they do “not maintain any system for keeping track” of them. [...]

But seven Mar-a-Lago members and their guests told ProPublica that uniformed officers, who appear to be Secret Service, stand at the doors of the resort on weekends when the president is there, and hold lists of people approved for access.

A quick programming note... as of today I was still receiving donations from last week's fundraiser so everyone who donated can expect to hear from me tomorrow. Thanks again!

    Scrooge McDuck. Yet another pop cultural character of my childhood that the GOP has ruined by making his shtick into an ideology.

    The murder of a journalist should send a chill up the spine of anyone who actually values democracy. The Panama Papers is one of the most important stories of our time. Naturally our “glorious media” (h/t Muselet) has almost completely ignored it.

    If Obama had ever dared to not report who he was meeting with at a private resort… AH, FUCK IT!!!
