Hereā€™s all the shit we couldnā€™t cover today:

  • Unlike the seven presidents who came before him, Donald Trump does not read the Presidentā€™s Daily Brief, a critical document that lays out the most ā€œpressing information collected by U.S. intelligence agencies from hot spots around the world,ā€ according to the Washington Post. [Washington Post]
  • The government shutdown is over and Trump signed a massive budget deal that includes funding for CHIP, aid to Puerto Rico, and infrastructure, but does not include protection for DREAMers. [Los Angeles Times]
  • The Department of Homeland Security continues to find new ways to target immigrants and is now reportedly considering going after non-citizens who benefit from government-subsidized programs like food stamps. What a great country this is. [Reuters]
  • Mike Pence says, ā€œThereā€™s no tolerance in this White House, and no place in America for domestic abuse,ā€ but, uh, the Trump administrationā€™s record says very much the opposite. [NBC News]
