The FBI and NSA directors testified today

What Did We Learn Today?

Quote
Let's start with the least mysterious: we learned today about as definitively as we are likely to learn that President Trump's claim that President Obama wiretapped him in Trump Tower is false. Seeing this stated so clearly is significant. But mainly we knew this.

However, regarding Trump et al. and the Russians...

Quote
Comey said this investigation is on-going and that it began in "late July."

To draw the very direct conclusion: the investigation continues and one of its key components is whether there was coordination between the Trump entourage and the Russian hacking effort. Ergo, it is false to suggest that that question has been settled in the negative.

What Did We Learn Today?

Just a terminology quip, but that should be:
What Did [Those Of Us Who Aren't Desperately Clinging to Alternative Facts™] Learn Today?
 
Although "desperately" is inaccurate--those described are able to quite fluidly navigate the Escher world their intellects and perceptions inhabit (though it's also oddly a two-dimensional Escher world).

‘Sesame Street’ Mocked Trump For Decades Before He Went After PBS

Quote
On multiple occasions, over multiple decades, “Sesame Street,” the show more closely associated with PBS than perhaps any other, took shots at the self-admitted and well-documented grudge-holder, calling the now-president “Ronald Grump” and building entire storylines around his greed and callousness.

The Wall Street Journal weighs in. 
A President’s Credibility
Trump’s falsehoods are eroding public trust, at home and abroad.


Quote
If President Trump announces that North Korea launched a missile that landed within 100 miles of Hawaii, would most Americans believe him? Would the rest of the world? We’re not sure, which speaks to the damage that Mr. Trump is doing to his Presidency with his seemingly endless stream of exaggerations, evidence-free accusations, implausible denials and other falsehoods.



The WSJ's tone is so damning that the NY Times reported on it...

Quote
The editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is known for its conservative tone, but its latest editorial would stand out even in the pages of its left-leaning peers...

In particular, the editorial board pointed to Mr. Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that former President Barack Obama tapped his phones. “The President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle,” the editorial said...



WSJ probably worried that the "Trump boom" will deflate if he can't get his deregulation party started...

Choppy Day on Wall Street; All Eyes on Trump and Healthcare

Quote
U.S. stocks in the previous session had suffered their worst day since before Trump's election as investors worried that the president's difficulty in overhauling healthcare was a sign he would also face trouble pushing through promised corporate tax cuts that have been behind the market's record-breaking rally since November.
