When I saw Trump's "chopper talk," not only openly breaking the law by asking Ukraine and China to investigate the Bidens (who needs a whistleblower now?) but also suggesting that literally everyone but him was corrupt, the only thing I could hear was Pee Wee saying, "I know you are but what am I?" This is what we've come to in America.

Take a good look at the guest list below. Notice anything?

How telling is that? The shows that frame the news debate for the rest of the week and not one White House staffer nor a single GOP leader was willing to come on and defend Donald Trump and his gang of miscreants.

The wheels really are coming off the bus, no matter who Trump tries to throw under it to save his ass.

Karma is an amazing thing.
