Conspiracy theories go bipartisan: In the NYTimes, Dems have begun buying into bogus conspiracy theories now also. This is not the kind of bipartisanship the country needs.  

In the Washington Post, it turns out that New England Patriots' defensive end Chris Long knows how to tackle on twitter as well as on the football field, and he is tackling President Trump. I knew I liked this kid.

At RNS, Mark Silk offers a brilliant explanation of what Donald Trump is really thinking when he is asked about Jews and anti-Semitism. Obama had Keegan-Michael Key as his "anger translator." Maybe Silk can get a gig at the next White House correspondents' dinner interpreting Trump's religious views!
