Here are your Monday Morning Meds … in the form of the weekly toons from AZBlueMeanie (aka illustrated news).
My addition to the haw-haws is this quote from White House spokesperson Hope Hicks about Jared Kushner being interviewed by the Senate Intelligence Committee. He met, you see, with a Russian banking overlord during the transition in December. The topic I leave to your imagination. Here’s the quote from the New York Times’ Senate Committee to Question Jared Kushner Over Meetings With Russians.
Members of presidential transition teams routinely meet with foreign officials, and there is nothing inherently improper about sitting down with the Russian ambassador. Part of Mr. Kushner’s role during the campaign and the transition was to serve as a chief conduit to foreign governments and officials, and Ms. Hicks said he met with dozens of officials from a wide range of countries.
How many of those countries were/are actively engaged in a disinformation campaign against the United States? Which of those countries intervened in the 2o16 election in order to help Donald Trump?
