What the hell were followers of Steve Bannon and an exiled Chinese mogul/MAGA celeb Guo Wengui doing in Poland? @delaney_nolan and @dfriedman33 report on a bizarre mission to rescue Ukrainian refugees.
You'll be shocked to hear that anti-vaxxers looking to make a buck have jumped into the Palestine Ohio fray:
“Santos taught me how to skim card information and how to clone cards. He gave me all the materials and taught me how to put skimming devices and cameras on ATM machines,” Trelha said in the declaration that was submitted to authorities…
“Silicon Valley Bank might have managed its interest rate risks better had parts of the Dodd-Frank financial-regulatory package, put in place after the 2008 crisis, not been rolled back under President Trump.”
The US media has been far too quiet about the protests riveting Israel. Something like 5% of Israel is in the streets. In the US that would equate to 16.5 million people. So we pulled together some photos to give you a sense of it:
Hillary had fucking pneumonia and attended a 9/11 memorial anyway and fainted and Trump and his supporters went bonkers and said she was about to die. Trump won't stand in the rain for a few minutes to honor the veterans of WWI. It's astonishing.
The Secret Service agents guarding the Vice President called loved ones to say goodbye, thinking they would die. Let that sink in.
@CoriBush is a complete breath of fresh air. Asked by @chrislhayes about GOP members evading metal detectors she starts off with "first of all, THIS IS A JOB. you work at McDonald's and you don't wear the uniform, you don't work today....Have these people ever had a job?"

Those 5,000 troops sitting on the border waiting for a few hundred bedraggled migrants to show up a month from now could be digging fire lines and helping to evacuate people and livestock from California instead.
I don’t know who needs to hear this—EVERY RUNNER IN AMERICA—but it is your responsibility to give a way wider detour around any pedestrian than six feet as you speed past them huffing and panting.
