Semi-Daily Gnuz

And, in today’s not so top stories…
Trump: ‘I just don’t want a poor person’ in top economic roles h/t The Hill
No Shit Sherlock. What happened to ‘drain the swamp’? Oh…Right… Except for cronies, Wall Street barons and the rest of the One Percenters

And

Three Ideas to Check Trump and Revive the Democratic Party h/t Paul Glastris @ Wa Mo
I personally like #3. Your take?

Finally,

Senate GOP to bring Obamacare repeal bill out of the shadows h/t Politico
My best guess is that it’s close enough to the disaster that the House rolled out to get a conference compromise done.
As much as it’s going to hurt, it may be necessary for the nation to feel the excruciating pain that is coming, in order to kick the R’s out of office in ’18 and/or 2020.

Finally,
THE MEMO: For Trump, danger signs in the polls h/t The Hill
We all know polls are not infallible, but the swirling toilet that is Trump’s approval is apparent to those legislators up for re-election in 2018. That would be the HOUSE, and 1/3rd of the Senate, hyeaaa.

Open Thread, have at it

In the Gnuz today…

Trump: ‘I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director’ h/t The Hill
It may just be as Rachel Maddow suggested earlier, that Trump doesn’t posess the faculty to understand what he’s doing. He has such a limited grasp and concept of the law, that he commits crimes without knowing what he’s doing.
Or, he’s just plain evil. Or some combination of extreme stupidity and narcissism.

And

‘That is autocracy’: Russian journalist explains how Trump has already set America down a dangerous path h/t Raw Story
Here’s a Russian journalist explaining the Trump paradigm. Would that his supporters would read this and understand who and what they are empowering

Incompetence extends to having so little self awareness that you twine the rope with which you hang yourself.

I coulda sworn in was when his lips were moving, but yeah….
