Barf BagWelcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
Here’s all the shit we couldn’t cover today:
- So at least these two are on the same page: President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin agree there was no collusion between their respective associates in the 2016 presidential election. The topic came up “very, very briefly” on an hour-long phone call. Trump told reporters, “I sort of smiled when he said something to the effect that it started off as a mountain and ended up as a mouse.” That’s... almost poetic. [Washington Post, Politico]
- Elsewhere, Trump says he ain’t afraid of no ghost. [NBC News]
- This again. [Politico]
- This uh... probably won’t work. [Business Insider]
- Neither will this. [Politico]
Here are some tweets the president was allowed to publish:
The president’s tweets have an especially manic energy today.
