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

Will you be watching Melania on Friday night at the ungodly hour of 10 pm ET? I will not, for I will be sleeping after consuming an inappropriate number of CBD gummies.

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

  • The Trump administration, led by top ghoul and glue-eater Stephen Miller, is considering new plans to separate families at the border. From the Washington Post: “One option under consideration is for the government to detain asylum-seeking families together for up to 20 days, then give parents a choice — stay in family detention with their child for months or years as their immigration case proceeds, or allow children to be taken to a government shelter so other relatives or guardians can seek custody.” [Washington Post]
  • Me to USA Today: Maybe should’ve fact-checked Trump’s op-ed a little bit earlier, perhaps before publishing it. Or maybe not published it at all? [USA Today]
  • White House Chief of Staff John Kelly called Senator Elizabeth Warren an “impolite arrogant woman” in an email last year, after they had a conversation about the administration’s Muslim ban. Just call her a bitch, John, you know you want to! [BuzzFeed]
  • And then Warren fired back on Twitter: “Was I tough on John Kelly in that phone call? You bet I was. Apparently he thought I was an ‘impolite arrogant woman.’ ‘Blah blah blah’ – that’s all he had to say when he was called out for breaking the law and destroying lives.” [Twitter]
  • Why do we treat our heroes like this. :( [Los Angeles Times]
  • Here’s a clip of Michigan’s Republican gubernatorial candidate being a creep. Bonus: If you’re able to summon the will to watch to the end, you get to hear his extremely creative pronunciation of “Vincent Van Gogh.” [Talking Points Memo]
  • Now let’s see what’s happening in Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial race, shall we. [Twitter]

Soooo, where can I get my “Impolite, arrogant woman” t-shirt? Yeah, I’m that bitch.

Esther, or anyone? There is a new CBD store near me, and as I’m looking to quit smoking cigs and cut back on my drinking, plus things have mind numbingly stressful I thought I’d give it a try. Any recommendations?

And now, for something completely off topic, but I wanted to share an incredibly lovely thing because the news has been so fucking abysmal lately.

Today I went to a graduation for guide dogs and their new people (my company may make me a little nuts sometimes, but being a regular sponsor of this event and a zillion other non-profits is one of the many reasons I hang in there). Not only was there a whole ballroom full of amazing trainers, breeders, puppy raisers, volunteers, donors, champions and alums with their pals, but there was a room full of VERY GOOD BOYS AND GIRLS!!!!

The stories of the eight graduates and their GOOD DOGGIES (who all laid perfectly well behaved under each graduate’s chair during the presentation) were so inspiring and beautiful. And when the Vietnam vet who finally decided he needed a doggo because he is the district rep of a lot of places he has to travel to at least once a year, wanted to be able to travel on his own, sang to his new pal, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Also there were several ‘ambassador’ doggoes for people to pet and snuggle, because no petting and snuggling the dogs who are working.

Sorry for being off topic, but the animals playing with pumpkins inspired me to share something I hope will make some’s day maybe a little brighter.

Here is a very good boy:
