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

Whatever career choices she made, she made. Bottom line is, this is not helpful.” Lindsey, my man...welcome to the resistance??? [ABC News]

- Will David Petraeus get pardoned next? Who knows! [Politico]
- Oh good, House Republicans are going to try and figure out a way to kumbaya a solution about immigration so that the government doesn’t shut down. [Washington Post]
