I’ve been extra busy at work this week, just as the news is getting really crazy. Honestly, yesterday was the first day in a long time where I felt like I couldn’t keep up with the onslaught of new revelations.
As a friend on Twitter put it, it feels like it is really happening. The downfall, the coming of the end. Of something.
To put the day in context, I thought I’d put all the major headlines of the day in chronological order here. These headlines are courtesy of PoliticalWire, which aggregates political news daily. I should also say that during the Trump administration, PoliticalWire will often post 10-12 big news stories, and on insane days, they might hit 20-25. So when you see a day like yesterday, you start to get a sense of just how crazy it got.
I’ve marked the BIG stories with a 💥 and Whoa! stories with a 💥💥.
