I see that our president has suddenly become enamored of The Trump Train, a fan site, and decided to retweet four of their tweets this morning. I’m sure you’re curious to learn more about this account that’s won Trump’s love, so I took a quick look. Mostly it seems to be in the business of selling truly hideous t-shirts and sweaters, but there’s also charming stuff like this:

There you have it, Donald Trump’s latest Twitter crush. Such a statesman.

UPDATE: One of Trump’s retweets this morning was a Trump Train claim that “illegals”get $3,874 a month from a federal assistance program. I hardly even need to tell you that this is not just wrong, but hilariously wrong, do I?

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
