Congrats on what I believe may be the first published use of the word "fuck" on @politico, @blakehounshell. It's go… on @politico: "in the abbreviated argot of texting & online chatting, 'af' stands for 'as fuck'.” of rumors that Hillary finished w some big $$ in bank, but @FEC report shows she finished w <$1M & spent $88M on media in final weeks.
Trump on EPA pick Scott Pruitt: “met with tremendous applause from the business community.” Should change it to BPA.“By the way, are you glad I ran for president?,” Trump asked (mostly) adoring crowd. “I think so. It’s a movement.”'s final @FEC report is massive -- 196MB. It's grinding my computer to a standstill. #CampaignFinanceNerdTalkTrump, on @TIMEMagUSA's Person of the Year:"They used to call it 'Man of the Year'…can’t do that anymore…have to be politically correct."Trump, on criticism that he's picking only billionaires: "I want people that made a fortune, & now they’ll be negotiating on behalf of you."Trump, after praising Pruitt, sprinkles in a dash of Teddy Roosevelt: “& believe it or not, environmentally, you’ll be protected better.”Trump, doing his election recap, now riffing on @Evan_McMullin: "This unknown person…I never saw this guy & he’s supposed to be doing well."Protestors escorted from Trump DSM rally after unfurling a sign & chanting "no Trump, no KKK, no fascism," as suppo…, on ambassadorship to China: "I can’t tell you how many ppl wanted that post. It’s not bad: you go over there, you live like a king."More @mike_pence: "Make no mistake about it, @Carrier decided to stay in America because Donald Trump was elected President of the U.S.".@Mike_Pence in Des Moines: "thank you that one month ago today you voted to elect a president who will Make America Great Again."Presenting: the 1st ever Hebrew language adapted POTUS seal on a yarmulke, per @weedouthate. press wifi code at Trump's Thank You Rally in Des Moines. "Bigly" must have been taken. Originals feel like even #NeverTrump folks are getting priority over them as Trump builds his administration prides himself on his loyalty, but some of the folks who helped launch his campaign are feeling left behind. stickers for sale outside Trump Thank You rally in Des Moines. selling hats/scarves outside Trump rally in DSM (where it's currently 23 degrees) promising his wares will "ma… Thank You Tour Swag in Des Moines. in DSM, prepping for 2020 caucuses.

Retweeted by Kenneth P. VogelThe reporter, @dougmckelway, argued that calling Pruitt a "climate change denier" is a "pejorative." It's not:…
Retweeted by Kenneth P. Vogel.@Reince joked that POTUS Trump will be so good, he'll be on the $20 💴. Trump (probly): do they make bills so small?
The Koch bros operation appears to be shifting to a for-profit political model, with i360 & new firm "In Pursuit Of" gunman: "I just wanted to do some good & went about it the wrong way.” @adamgoldmanNYT w exclu interview: bros network says layoffs/reorg. geared toward making impact in Trump era. But critics say Kochs are diminished Koch bros operation, which denied it was retreating, lays off 81 people; also creates new for-profit consulting firm. Story URL comingShot/chaser:

Bet you're kicking yourself that you're missing out on this trenchant political analysis, @cnn. It's horrible. Oh, wait, everyone already knew that. #DCA4ever there any chance anti-Trump electors could give presidency to someone else?

Retweeted by Kenneth P. VogelCongress writes laws; doesn't follow them: @replouiegohmert cleared to resume smoking ribs on his Capitol balcony. Kushner, real estate whiz, told associate this year(!): "People really seem to love Brooklyn.They live there!"'s VP to speak at Trump's hotel to top donors of group helping Trump's transition. #synergy @markskogan nope. FECA says campaigns have to pay fair market value for goods/services. USSS guidelines require reimbursement to campaigns. @markskogan USSS reimbursement (a story we broke) is different—& a lot less—than paying for full cost of the plane.'s campaign paid his own company, TAG Air, $6.7M for air travel. If he uses his plane instead of AF1, will taxpayers reimburse TAG Air?Trump, attending Saturday's Army-Navy game, will spend 1/2 on @USArmy side & 1/2 on @USNavy side, per @seanspicer. Presidential tradition. @zengerle which is why I RT'd someone who responded to my tweet stating that fact plainly, but thanks! @kenvogel @USArmy @USNavy That's traditional for the President/President-elect to do.
