I’ve been more than a little distracted the last few days, so I haven’t been able to follow the news cycle (aka Trump’s Twitter feed) quite as closely as the rest of the internet.

Jesus: social justice warrior? Apparently so, if you believe Jacqui Lewis, senior minister of the very liberal Middle Collegiate Church in NYC. During her appearance on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, Lewis described Jesus as a “brown-skinned Palestinian man who understood he needed to resist.”

An Al Sharpton guest has the early lead for today’s most simultaneously inflammatory and nonsensical statement.

Ras Baraka, mayor of Newark, NJ, said that in clamping down on sanctuary cities such as his, the Trump administration is “trying to intimidate us into being what I’ve called fugitive slave catchers.”

Quick: name the woman who was the object of Donald Trump’s crude remarks on the hot mic. Bet most of us can’t. Because her identity, while not a secret, has not been featured in the coverage. For example, this Insurrectionist sampled most of the Sunday talks shows this morning and didn’t...

Morning Joe did a very decent job today of covering the shooting of police officers in Dallas and the issue of police shootings of African-American. The remarks were generally even-handed.
