In other news, Twitter says it has deleted 10,000 fake accounts that were discouraging people from voting in next week's elections.

Meanwhile, a federal judge has ruled against the Trump regime's attempt to block the emoluments lawsuits filed by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia. The lawsuit will now proceed to discovery, which should be very illuminating.

Finally, Wired reports that Ecuadorian authorities are considering kicking Julian Assange out of their embassy in London because he doesn't clean his cat's litter box or his own. He also... rides a skateboard indoors?

It seems the foreign service, which originally granted Assange asylum on the grounds that he was a swashbuckling crusader for government transparency, had had enough of Assange’s neglect of his cat and its litter box. The embassy is also fed up with his indifference to basic hygiene and bathroom cleanliness; his mooching of food and Wi-Fi; his woodwork-damaging indoor-skateboarding habit; and his general Kato Kaelin–style freeloading. Assange’s six-year tenancy at the embassy has cost the government $6 million. So far.

Assange is 47 years old, not 17.

Anyway, I don't know about y'all but I'm exhausted. I can't keep my eyes open and it's not even dark yet.

Have a good weekend and don't forget to set your clocks back on Sunday. Speak to your friends or family over the weekend and urge them to vote on Tuesday if they haven't already.
