Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today former President George W. Bush rebuked the God-King, saying a free press and freedom of worship are fundamental to our nation’s values. Also, the God-King claimed “nobody knew that health care could be so complicated,” but Vox’s Matthew Yglesias explained why #ActuallyEveryoneKnewThat. Meanwhile, California legislators are considering single-payer health care, or at least adding a public option to the Covered California plans. And Axios’s Mike Allen reported that Out House Sewer Spout Sean Spicer pressured the CIA and Republican leaders to push back on the New York Times story of the God-King’s Russian connections. Talking Points Memo’s Caitlin MacNeal offers five points on how that may compromise House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes’ denial of the evidence and Mother JonesDavid Corn asks if Republicans can be trusted to investigate the God-King, while the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple says Spicer is losing his grip on his staff, the media, and reality. Did you ever think you would applaud former President Bush?
