    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    At Tuesday’s press briefing, just a day after Anthony Scaramucci was fired from his role of White House Communications Director, that story already seemed distant. As Sarah Huckabee Sanders came out into the briefing room, everyone wanted to ask about two stories that had broken since the Mooch’s ignominious departure.

    The Washington Post reported Monday that President Trump himself had dictated his son’s first, misleading statement that the discussion with a Russian lawyer—who we now know had contacted Don Jr. with the promise of handing over dirt on Hillary—had been about adoption.

  • Sessions' Sexist Stonewalling at the Senate Hearing

    Blog: In the Loop

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is sworn in before testifying at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Tuesday.

    If you didn’t know, via obscure Latin etymology, that the word “testify” is related to the word “testicles,” you sure could have guessed it from watching Senate testimony pretty much any time ever, but certainly this year. (For what it’s worth in Rome, you swore on your balls to tell the truth.) 

    Back when now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in the middle of the confirmation hearings in which he seemingly perjured himself about contacts with Russian officials, Sen. Elizabeth Warren tried to read a letter Coretta Scott King wrote to the Judiciary Committee about Sessions into the congressional record. King wrote the letter in 1986, when Sessions was up for a federal judgeship. Though Sessions didn't get the post because of his racist views, the letter never made it into the record, and Warren was trying to correct that. 

    Majority Leader MItch McConnell pulled out an obscure rule to censure Warren for impugning the character of a fellow senator. McConnell uttered the now famous phrases: “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
