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

Monday: a surprise cry day, cry babies.

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

  • John Delaney, my guy, is reading David Brooks this summer. What a perfect delight. [Politico]
  • Marianne Williamson is trying to help Mike Gravel, a former senator from Alaska and also an avatar for two very online teenagers from New York, qualify for the next Democratic debate. I hope it works, honestly. [Newsweek]
  • This isn’t politics necessarily, but still makes the best case for redistributive economic policy and the abolition of private education that I’ve read all day! [The Cut]
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders would like to call an emergency an emergency. [The Guardian]
  • Elizabeth Warren’s campaign is doing pretty well, it seems. [NPR]
  • One billionaire hurt his back and maybe can’t run for president so another billionaire has to run in his place. Those are the rules. [Washington Post]
  • Committed racist Kris Kobach is running for Senate and possibly can’t spell his own name. [The Daily Beast]
  • Is there any greater thrill than reading rude things about other people that you weren’t meant to read? No: “We don’t really believe this Administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept.” [Politico]
  • And now Eric Swalwell’s watch is ended. [CNN]

Here are some tweets the president was allowed to publish:
