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

Who doesn’t fear a jockstrap, though, really?

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

  • “Jockstrap” is a naughty word in Trump world, apparently. During a notably unhinged rant against House Intelligence Committee head Adam Schiff, Trump wanted to say that Schiff wasn’t fit to carry Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s jockstrap. Instead, he censored himself, saying, “You know, there’s an expression: He couldn’t carry his blank strap. I won’t say it, because they’ll say it was so terrible to say.” Hm, he won’t say jockstrap, but he has no qualms with writing the word “bullshit” on Twitter. Got it! [Vanity Fair]
