The WH is now sending around anti-Romney talking points, including: •Romney’s decision was unsurprising as this display of self-serving political expedience has come to define his career. •Romney has a long history of flip-flopping, with no sign of principles to be found.

Trump celebrates end of impeachment with angry, raw and vindictive 62-minute White House rant @DavidNakamura 

Trump prepares to push out Alexander Vindman, national security official who testified against him in impeachment inquiry @jdawsey1  @costareports  @gregpmiller 

While playing playground hide and seek w 8-year-old Zoe Bender, I was first discovered by two 5-year-old boys, who has the following — devastating — conversation: Kid 1: “Who are you?!” Kid 2: “Oh, she’s a mother.” Kid 1: “I don’t care about mothers.”

I will say that in the early weeks, I basically hobbled around in a haze, angrily repeating, mantra-style, “Why did no one tell me about this???”

This is false. Don Jr. only revealed his emails once he learned the NYT already had them, in an attempt to pre-empt the story.

“Son of a bitch.” “Hell.” “Barack Obama’s ass.” This is a heckuva rally for The Pences to watch from the wings, straightfaced and barely blinking

Let this be instructive for the next time the president falsely claims “fake news” or fake sources... HE IS LITERALLY DENYING A SENIOR OFFICIAL WHO GAVE A WHITE HOUSE-SANCTIONED BACKGROUND BRIEFING. I am now returning to my regularly scheduled Memorial Day weekend...
