Trump: Impeach Me and the Economy Will Go Up in Smoke

Today’s ramblings from from President Trump:

  • The New York Times cannot write a good story about me. They’re crazed, they’re like lunatics
  • He [Manafort] refused to “break” – make up stories to get a “deal.” Such respect for a brave man!
  • I’ve seen it many times. I’ve had many friends involved in this stuff. It’s called flipping and it almost ought to be illegal.
  • “If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor. Because without this thinking you would see” —points to head — “you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe in reverse.”

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
