You know all that stuff on Spankee’s calendar today? Meeting some kids team?

Either they cancel or he’s gonna rant like a MFer and those poor kids will have zero idea why the fat man with the beet-red face and the cheeto-colored hair is using all those words their mothers smack 'em for.

ETA: According to The Guardian, Marie Yovanovich has arrived for her testimony. (Bizarrely enough, the British paper has it but it’s not in the US ones…?!)

1:45 p.m. Here’s a snippet from his calendar. Note from 9:00 to 1:45 is now called “Pool Call Time” instead of “Executive Time” – guess he got tired of taking flak for it. :smirk:

Afterwards he meets with the Vice Premier of China. That’s gonna be a real effective meeting. :joy::joy:
