Most of you, I suspect, have spent the better part of the last 24 hours stewing in rage. Maybe you’re also checking Twitter every five minutes, not because you think anything will change, but because there are literally millions of people who will validate your anger.

But Jesus Christ, it’s a crappy feeling.

In last night’s “A Closer Look,” Seth Meyers takes that rage and uses it to at least finds some ways to make fun of Donald Trump and the Republicans and their collective incompetence, and for ten minutes at least, it feels good to laugh at these bumbling, doughy white guys. I mean: Meyers makes the same arguments, and points out the same flaws, and highlights all the evils of Trumpcare that we’re all aware of. However, he mixes it up with a few jokes, which at least makes digesting it again a little more palatable without changing the fact that these corrupt, soulless, hypocritical sociopaths are endangering the lives of millions because they made a promise that only 17 percent of America wants them to keep.

Are there any Wisconsinites who can take on Paul Ryan in 2018? Anyone? Mark Ruffalo? Bradley Whitford? Come on, help a country out?
