This week’s Good News from the Resistance: Poor, sad, tiny-handed loser 45. His crooked campaign manager Paul Manafort was hauled away (ok, technically he turned himself in) and his Twitter account suspended, all in the same week. Our fearless “leader” may not have cared much about Puerto Rico’s lights still being off, and he probably didn’t blink when Secretary of Interior Zinke’s buddy got the contract to turn them back on … but he surely took notice when the governor of Puerto Rico nixed the corrupt contract, which immediately became the focus of a new IRS investigation. But you knew all of that. Here’s more Good News:
- Watch this video on how to Stop the Wall
- Read Manafort’s daughter’s private texts about dad
- Cringe when you read more hacked texts about Manafort’s “blood money”
- Smile at this insider’s account of 45’s response to Mueller’s indictments
- Thank Obama for getting involved
- Drink Make the Earth Great Again beer and fight climate change
- Count the empty seats at Ivanka’s speech in Japan
- Applaud the 2017 MacArthur Genius Award winner, a formerly undocumented immigrant
