That article was good. Too often tv clips miss too much. This was better than most.

Watch for deconstructions of the trump speech listing his lies. I did not listen to it either (was terribly long) but waited until Ms. Abrams was on. She was an inspiration and hit all the right notes.
However in the UK the phrase "Pigs 'n Politics" has a whole other, less wholesome, connotation

Anyone see this gem? From Huffington Post:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) exposed some of the biggest flaws and loopholes in campaign finance laws this week ― and she did it in just five minutes.
During a hearing, the freshman lawmaker created a game in which she pretended to be “a really, really bad guy” who wants to abuse the system as much as possible. Then, in a series of questions, she exposed the world of payoffs, dark money, PACs and more. She even revealed how it was perfectly legal for a lawmaker to invest in an industry, then write laws to benefit that industry and increase the value of the investment.
And as lax as the laws are for members of Congress, there are even fewer restrictions for a president.
