Yesterday, the regime of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un fired a ballistic missile into the sea off the Korean Peninsula. In response to that provocation, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, said,

“North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile. The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.”

But just a few days earlier, a White House official said, “The clock has now run out, and all options are on the table.”

Apparently, those options include saying and doing nothing meaningful about, well, anything!

White House officials said that the, “do nothing meaningful,” policy will be the continued stance of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп, along with, “Blame Obama, mention Hillary Clinton.”

Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп has removed chief strategist Steve Bannon from the National Security Council, according to a filing in the federal registry.

White House officials say that Bannon was only on the NSC to look over then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Now that Flynn is gone, Bannon is no longer needed in that role, the official said. Of course, Michael “General Misha” Flynn has been out of that role for nearly 2 months now.

Grassroots organizers had been calling their elected officials for months, with some mentioning the question about the legitimacy of Bannon, who had not been vetted by the Senate, even serving on the NSC in the first place. Many made mention of a bill from Representative Stephanie Murphy’s (D-Fla.) to remove him during their calls.

Reportedly, both far right and far left publications are preparing stories to downlplay the grassroots efforts, and remind everyone that the women’s Resistance movement is a failure.

No word yet on how many of those hot-takes will make sure to mention, “real issues,” and make fun of pink hats.

In other news, Police officers in Fresno, California are trying to identify a woman with webbed-toes who claims to be a mermaid. The woman was found wandering in the middle of the street, mostly naked, and dripping wet.

Reportedly, the woman asked, “Did Jill Stein win the Presidency? I’ve been swimming.” When she heard that Трамп was President, the mermaid reportedly jumped into the water and said, “It’s the two-party system’s fault …”

If Bannon being off of the NSC was one of the things you were calling about, congratulations. Cross it off the list! And either double-down on the rest of your list, or add something new.

It’s up to you. It really is. If you helped, today, it’s partly your day. So thank you!

Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
