Hey there. Welcome. If this is basically you after looking at your phone, computer, or any other thing and seeing what a complete tornado shitstorm of a news day we had Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2018, which shall now be called "holy fucking hell," then you are in the right place.
The biggest news of the day naturally orbited around President Donald Trump, with two of his former associates appearing in federal court in separate cases. And because we are now all living in a reality TV split screen, Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal crimes at the same time that Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was found guilty of his own set of eight federal charges.
Oh, and a Republican lawmaker and his wife were charged in federal court for spending campaign money on things like dental work, theater trips, and plane tickets for a bunny.
So basically an entire summer's worth of news happened in less than 12 hours of straight chaos.
