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

It’s Tuesday. Cry time already. Comes earlier every year!

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

  • The new president of the National Rifle Association seems like a real peach. [Media Matters]
  • A shame to make a nice teacher meet with so many assholes, really. [Politico]
  • There is no reason to deny incarcerated people the right to vote. On Tuesday, 70 civil rights organizations released a statement saying as much—giving Democrats even less political cover when they argue otherwise. [HuffPost]
  • More alleged labor violations from Trump properties. [Washington Post]

Here are some tweets the president was allowed to publish:

We have 1,800 ISIS Prisoners taken hostage in our final battles to destroy 100% of the Caliphate in Syria.

The fuck? Isn’t he talking about ISIS fighters captured in battle? But wait, perhaps I’m wrong; is the US military taking hostages now? Did I miss the clip of him waving around an executive order exhorting y’all to Make America Kidnappy Again?

China is adding great stimulus to its economy while at the same time keeping interest rates low. Our Federal Reserve has incessantly lifted interest rates, even though inflation is very low...

Is your president actually extolling the virtues of China’s economic system as a model for your country? Is that what’s happening? Should I be moving even farther north? Do I have enough bottled water?
