MSNBC: Nothing like eating your words! Mr. Rep Barr.

CNN: Scary times. I'm not confident on dt's negotiation skills, re: NK, and Un. He has none, imo.

NYer: As only Andy can write, how it really went down. lol

Cartoon: Seriously! Word.

I hope that you have a good day too, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

CNN is reviewing the Mueller report now, and as staff read it, they post highlights here.

5:26 He looks like he's having fun.

MSNBC - don't they do that every time they open their mouths?

CNN - Anyone surprised?

TNY - Yeah, pretty well

Cartoon - Theu already came (and saw and conquered, alas.)

Thanks, gotta go read (or at least scan) the PDF redacted Mueller you shared.....of note, AlterNet reporting "Mueller has referred a whopping 14 additional potential criminal c.ases to other offices" article

I wonder if that North Korean weapon really is so dangerous - or if it's more bark than bite. Kim loves to dick around Cheat-oh. But are we surprised that other countries are jerking our chain, when we have jerked the chains of other countries for decades? Where does the daisy chain end?

MSNBC: Rep. Barr may have just opened a door he will be sorry for even pointing to! I hope she goes there, and to Kentucky, Luisiana, and more!
CNN: Dumpy did such a wonderful job of negotiating when he met with the Koreans, he is just the World Class Negotiator Non-Pariel!
New Yorker: So, A.G. Barr is the rancid spot on Dumpy’s brown nose work with Putin.

3:46 A new mouse couldn’t save this little one from your mouth, TomCat.

MSNBC: 🤣😜 This Andy Barr sure did put his foot in it, he can’t even flip-flop properly. Barr withdrawing his invitation to AOC as a courtesy? Hilarious.

CNN: Drumpf was right about one thing: Kim Jong-un is very smart. And obviously listens to his advisers who tell him that Drumpf is under pressure in the US. So Kim has added a little pressure of his own: he made it known that he was experimenting successfully with new ‘tactical’ weapons and now has told the American administration he no longer wants to deal with Pompeo (who openly opposes lifting sanctions). The ball is now in the court of the ‘Great Deal Maker’ again. Will he still maintain that making a deal with North Korea is a cinch?

TNY: Is there nothing this Administration can do right? ‘“I have to do everything for these people,” he [Putin] reportedly said.’ Sorry, Mr. Putin. You knew Drumpf can’t read or write and that he only hires the most atrocious personnel. 😁

Cartoon: I doubt if they would ever wanted to come. Interfere, destabilize, bring chaos? Yes. But, then come and have to deal with what they’ve wrought and clean up the mess? Nah.

MSNBC: Just like their foolish master, they're getting good at putting their foot into their mouth.
CNN: Agree with Lona, Kim loves testing/teasing tRump. What get me is tRump hasn't tweeted one thing about this. Makes me wonder?
TNY: Spot on Andy. He sure does know bArr/pUtin and tRump well..
Cartoon: Yep they came and we've been suffering ever since.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

Puzzle — 4:54 Just hanging around!

MSNBC — Republicans are afraid of AOC because she is smart and articulate . . . definitely smarter than they are. Stepping in “dawg crap” — LMAO!!!

CNN — Stay tuned. More news at 11:00. Nothing good is likely to come of this with Trump involved.

The New Yorker — LMAO! That sounds about right.

Cartoon — Vini, Vidi, Vici works well for this! (my old high school motto)

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

I kept doing a face plant at the keyboard before I could finish my comment yesterday. I did not even make it to church this morning because I slept so soundly and long. Even my furbabes did not wake me for their breakfast!

Thanks for the matzoshout-out, Joanne. Re: cartoon. I prefer the movie version with Carl Reiner, Theodore Bickel, and Alan Arkin.
Another Andy gem: Attorney General William Barr said this morning that the Mueller Report offered irrefutable evidence that Donald J. Trump served “bravely and valiantly” in the Vietnam War. “

3:25. MSNBC: AOC should go everywhere to talk her Green Deal. We need change, and fast, and the only way to get people on board is to get them informed.

CNN: Kim Jong Un is going to do whatever he wants, no matter what our Resident Agent Orange says or does.

TNY: With the current mess the WH has made from themselves, I wouldn't doubt Andy is back to real news.

Thanks for the post, TomCat. I'm enjoying the cooler weather for as long as it lasts, which won't be long enough.
