Tuesday’s politics thread is present and accounted for.

Attorneys for former President Donald Trump want a new judge in his 2020 election interference case.

In a filing Monday, they argued that Judge Tanya Chutkan should recuse herself from the case for previous statements they say give the appearance of bias.

There’s my three. Do your thing. Yesterday was a tough day for me, probably true for a lot of folks. So let’s all remember that and treat everyone (including ourselves) with some grace and kindness.

And throw away the crap in your car, if you have one. SheleetaMan is the best and threw out a bunch of stuff in mine because he knows I’m having a tough time lately (that’s another story for another time), but it took him all of ten minutes. I could have done that. I appreciate him doing it though.

If you need a laugh, we’ve watched this about a hundred times. Totally SFW. All the little girl says is “Can I pet that dawg?”
