Daily Check-In 10/12/2017

Thursday. I could never get the hang of Thursdays.

There are a ton of stories breaking today, and not one of them was about the increasing chatter from Twitter about Trump’s deteriorating mental state, his mood swings, or how there are discussions about the 25th Amendment.

Because there is so much tonight, and it’s late, I’m including the links to stories, and maybe a couple lines about each.

TRUMP LAWYERS OFFER TO MEET WITH MUELLER.

ROGER STONE HAS UNTIL FRIDAY TO REVEAL HIS CONTACT WITH RUSSIA TO HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE OR FACE SUBPOENA.

MUELLER LOOKING INTO CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA.

US TROOPS DEPLOYED TO NATO BASE IN POLAND. RUSSIA VOWS RETALIATION.

RUSSIA, TWITTER BOTS, AND FACEBOOK SCRUBS DATA.

EVEN MORE KUSHNER SF-86 SCREWUPS.

TRUMP DISRESPECTED FLAG. HYPOCRISY METER IS OFFICIALLY BORKEN.

GOP SENATOR BEN SASSE GETS SASSY.

Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska issued a statement Wednesday night that read, “Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter.”

He continued, “Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20th to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?”

SPORTS TEAMS ABANDONED TRUMP HOTELS.

KELLY NOT LEAVING TODAY.

That’s it for today. I expect tomorrow to be even crazier. I didn’t even cover Puerto Rico, the Executive Orders about the ACA, the new cabinet appointment for DHS, the thoroughly corrupt appointments for NOAA or Pipeline Safety, or their nutty interpretation of why the Presidential Records Act doesn’t apply to them, or how the lawyer representing the Russian Lawyer for the June 9 meeting, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was Scott Balber, one of Trump’s former lawyers.

Let’s see how the Friday News Dump goes.

Thank you, and have a good one.
