Doesn’t it feel pleasant watching Donald Trump recede in our rearview mirror? He’s getting so tiny! Soon, he’ll just be an insane little dotdown in Mar-a-Lago... probably, but who cares? Today, Trump willpardon the national Thanksgiving turkey. On January 20, he’ll be dragged, kicking and screaming, sadly metaphorically, from the White House.

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash(Share code: Send $5, get $5!) How do you write a summary of a wildfire? Is democracy burning down, or is the threat being contained? There are so many fires, and so many arsonists! Here’s whereDavid Waldman and Greg Dworkin were this AM: The Board of Canvassers in Wayne County, Michigan almost didn’t certify the county’s votes, because of the two certifiable racists whoderailed the process, thenviral fame ensued.Finally, thetwo choseto be a footnote, rather than a chapter in future history books, and voted with the others to certify the vote.Donald Trump then called on the two to reach out and tell them what a great job... and life they had to that point, and what a shame it would be if something happened to it. Both now have signed paperwork indicating that they didn’t approve of the votes they had already made. But… of course, they already certified, the process has moved on, the laws the law…the gavel has dropped…right? RIGHT?...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash(Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Welcome to another wacky Wednesday with our wackyKITM Morning crew, David Waldman and Greg Dworkin delivering us from another wacky day of a barely surviving democracy! Ever wonder how many times the actions of a few people managed to save us from destruction? Or how many of these situations might occur in, say, the next 60 days? Did you ever think you’d be watching one unfold on Zoom? Trump forces are dropping bombs everywhere, so no matter how ineptly assembled, you should expect some to explode. Democracy almost lost Michigan yesterday when two Wayne County board membersdecided to not certify their counts. They were forced into retreateven before their Confederate monuments could be built. Things can go back to normal, at least there, at least for now. In Pennsylvania, they get RudyGiuliani. Not the best choice, even if you are just planning to drive the case to the Supreme Court.Rudy is charging$20,000...

Hmm-Lliiiiiivvvve!David Waldman welcomes KITM’s regular, yet special, Tuesday guest Joan McCarterto discuss the important things happening and not happening today. Donald Trump, who was never really president, but is nowsomehow in exile, is plotting his return. About 3000 votes have turned up in Georgia, almost 1000 in the Trump Glorious Victory column. Only several million more to go! Rather than dig up Trump votes, Lindsey Graham realized it would beeasier and quicker to justnot count Biden votes. So, he rung up Georgia’s secretary of state, and Arizona’s, and Nevada’s to see if any might be able to work ina few felonies into their counts. Trump’s lawyers alsoturned out to be slackers when it cameto going to jail for their client. Donald knew who he should turn to in times like these, but Rudy Giuliani was available, so he’s got the job. It’s been a while, but Rudy still has afew tricks up his slee...

Too bad that COVID-19 doesn’t justinfectpeople ironically. Jonathan Turley used to play a smart guy on TV, but dropped that gig a few years ago.
