From THE HILL:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said on Sunday that GOP Reps. Doug Collins (Ga.), John Ratcliffe (Texas) and Jim Jordan (Ohio) should represent President Trump in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.
Wait, what? Now shitheads paid by taxpayers are supposed to defend Twitler? There are no attorneys in the White House Counsel Office? What about Twitler’s private attorneys…oops! I forgot that they are either in jail or under investigation because the SDNY is so jealous of him. I wonder what’s next. Will Rethugs insist that Chief Justice John Roberts wears a MAGA hat and T-shirt when he presides over what may or may not be a trial?

From The Chronicle (Duke University):
Stephen Miller, White House senior advisor […] drew a firestorm of media attention this week after hundreds of his emails with a former Breitbart editor were reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Miller, an immigration hardliner who was reportedly an architect of President Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim ban,” sent the emails to Katie McHugh, then an editor at Breitbart, in 2015 and 2016. The SPLC report paints a picture in which Miller would send information and story ideas—sometimes citing VDare, which has published work by white nationalists, and InfoWars, which is known for promoting conspiracy theories—to McHugh, who then often wrote about the topics for Breitbart.

From CBS Denver:
President Donald Trump said, “We’re building a wall in Colorado” when talking about border wall progress on Wednesday afternoon. Trump was speaking in Pittsburgh at the Shale Insight Conference when he made the comments.
“And we’re building a wall on the border of New Mexico and we’re building a wall in Colorado, we’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works that you can’t get over, you can’t get under and we’re building a wall in Texas. We’re not building a wall in Kansas but they get the benefit of the walls we just mentioned,” said Trump.

“Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge,” Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said Tuesday, twisting Emma Lazarus’ famous words on a bronze plaque at the Statue of Liberty.
From Rex Huppke at the Chicago Tribune:
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from President Donald Trump it’s that “chain migration” is extremely bad and dangerous and it’s allowing truly evil people into our country.
That’s why we must all come together as Americans — right now — and demand the immediate deportation of first lady Melania Trump’s potentially truly evil parents.
I know it sounds extreme, but I’m 100 percent certain it’s what President Trump would want us, as patriots, to do.

From The Washington Post:
Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself.
Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her.

I wish I was making this up, kids. From Vox:
While boarding an Air Force plane to visit migrant children at the Texas-Mexico border on Thursday, Melania Trump wore a jacket with the phrase “I really don’t care, do u?” scrawled on the back, as reported earlier by the Daily Mail.
She left her hat on the plane. It is also from the Marie Antoinette Collection at Zara, the same fashion house that made her $39 jacket.
Here’s the jacket and the original:

President Donald Trump made racially-charged comments during a meeting on immigration with lawmakers on Thursday, asking why the U.S. admits people from “shithole countries,” according to two people familiar with the meeting.
The White House did not deny Trump made the remarks.
