Today I signed up to join the Women’s March Tele-Town Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 15th at 7 PM ET, when they will announce their Hear Our Voice campaign. This campaign will launch thousands of grassroots-led protests, actions, and meetings, intended to directly engage Congress during the President’s Day recess until the 26th of February. I encourage everyone to sign up or check the live stream tomorrow!
Also here’s a picture from Mar-a-Lago, taken on a private cellphone, of the security talks between Japanese PM Abe and POTUS. Because honestly how can you not kind of chuckle at this gross level of incompetence?
Well, things aren’t looking so good for ol’ POTUS! Flynn resigned, so of course, he changes the narrative by questions why all these leaks are coming out of Washington, instead of, oh I don’t know, why three members of his campaign/administration have quit because of ties to the Russians.
Congressional Republicans have started talking about maybe it’s sort of kind of time I guess to investigate Flynn and the Russian claims. They have continued to refuse calls to investigate ties to POTUS himself, or into his unreleased taxes.
Cabinet: David Shulkin is confirmed as the head of the Veterans Affairs Department unanimously. And honestly, this is the best pick by far. He’s competent, a holdover from the last administration, and is heavily against privatizing the VA system. Also, Linda McMahon (former WWE exec) was confirmed as head of the Small Business Administration.
