In other news, Trump's deputy national security adviser Dina Powell has announced her resignation. We don't know exactly why she's leaving, but she was a member of Jared Kushner's Israeli/Palestinian peace team and, well, you know the rest.
Meanwhile, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has been caught using government helicopters just to travel around D.C. including a trip to ride horses with Mike Pence. The horseback flight across town cost over $6,200.
Finally, Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) has resigned effective immediately because he is one sick motherfucker. We learned last night that Franks asked female staffers to bear children for him as surrogate mothers. Politico reports that Franks wanted to have intercourse to impregnate them. The Associated Press also reports that he offered them $5 million.
A government shutdown has been averted, at least for the next 2 weeks. We get to do the shutdown dance all over again on the 22nd.
Have a good weekend.
