Barf BagWelcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.

What a fortnight!!!!!!

Here’s all the shit we couldn’t cover today:

  • The entirely self-inflicted wounds of Anthony Scaramucci have reached truly friggin’ Shakespearean levels: on the same day he was fired after a mere 10 days on the job—during which time he got served with divorce papers, missed the birth of his child, and was quoted on the record accusing a colleague of trying to “suck” his own “cock”—it was also discovered that the Mooch is listed as deceased in the new Harvard Law School alumni directory. Of course, only a few days ago Scaramucci himself himself threatened to “fucking kill” his colleagues... so, following that interpretation, the Harvard Law School alumni directory is not incorrect. [Washington Post]
  • Joe Arpaio, standout shitbag in a stunk-up country, has been convicted of criminal contempt. [New York Times]
  • Jared Kushner told congressional interns (??) that the Trump campaign was too disorganized to collude with Russia. [Foreign Policy]
  • FYI the president actually did not encourage police officers to beat up arrested suspects in that speech last week where he did exactly that, okay? That was a joke, you guys? Don’t you have a sense of humor? [Politico]
  • According to a new poll, 60 percent of voters believe, correctly, that the Trump administration is in chaos. [Politico]
  • I guess we support NATO now, or something. [WSJ]
  • Here are some resources to catch you up on the rapidly deteriorating situation in Venezuela. [The Guardian, Washington Post, HuffPost]
  • Kentucky governor Matt Bevin, Donald Trump mini-me, is being sued by the ACLU for blocking constituents on social media. [WFPL]

Here are some tweets the President was allowed to publish:
