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

Today the Washington Post reported that the God-King’s “armada” headed for North Korea … was actually headed for routine exercises with the Australian navy. Also, AP reported that China gave Princess Grifter a sweet deal to sell her clothing and jewelry there, on the same night she and Jared Kushner shared a state dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago. Meanwhile, Daniel Drezner explained why the God-King’s congratulatory call to Turkish strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Mark Sumner debunked the New York Times’ narrative of the God-King “slipping away from populism.” And Steve M. explains why conservatives are lying about what may be merely random fluctuation in the nation’s homicide rate. Will right-wing lies and corruption ever meet real consequences?
