The [Thursday] Papers

People! The party playlist is in pre-production. You will not want to miss this.

A sampling.

She's a United States senator.

*

*

It's congressional Republicans who are now unrestrained, not - and due to- the president.

*

*

We literally have a pathological liar as president. Incontrovertible.

*

*

We're working 'round the clock to get the answer and we're almost there!
