In other news, Mexican and Canadian officials say they'll stay in NAFTA even if Trump withdraws from it. They don't need us as much as Trump likes to think. This isn't one of his "deals."

Meanwhile, the Colorado GOP is cutting the cost of tickets to see Mike Pence by nearly half because no one wants to see him, at least not for that price.

Finally, a federal judge from the Fourth District has ordered the Trump regime to allow an undocumented teenager to travel to get an abortion, but they're appealing the ruling. The young girl is being represented by the ACLU.

At arguments earlier on Wednesday, US District Judge Tanya Chutkan appeared likely to order that the government must allow the young woman, referred to in court papers as “Jane Doe,” to get an abortion. The judge was incredulous as she questioned the lawyer for the government, at one point saying she was “astounded” at the government’s apparent position that the teen’s only options were to either carry the pregnancy to term or go back to her home country.

“Just because she’s here illegally doesn’t mean she doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Chutkan said.

Programming note... I'm signing off a little early today because I feel like a zombie and can't even focus to write. But before I go, I highly recommend taking 30 minutes to watch this short documentary from Frontline PBS on the battle to retake Mosul from ISIS. It's remarkable.

    And yet, I bet if you asked Colorado Republicans if they’d still vote for him the answer would be a resounding “Yes!”

    I wouldn’t pay the price of bubblegum to listen to that fake Christian grifter.

    I’m surprised. If there’s anything the Red Shirts hate more than abortions, it’s “anchor babies.”

      You shouldn’t expect an appreciation of irony from the Red Shirts.

      I am betting they don’t realize that her child would be considered a US citizen. Or they are assuming the detention centers are no US soil.
