Depressing lunchtime reading Tuesday, 29 May 2018 11:53:50 CDT David-Braverman Politics (0) I've queued up a few articles to read while eating lunch. I just hope I don't lose said lunch after reading them: Jeet Heer worries about President Trump's willingness to destroy everything around himself to distract from his own scandals. Catherine Rampell walks through the ways the administration's policy of separating children from parents at the border reveals the GOP's grand scam. James Fallows lays out the ways the administration continues to screw up our relationship with China. Josh Marshall, despite returning the basic facts of Trump's con, remains cautiously optimistic we can still slow the anti-liberal retrenchment going on. Le sigh.
