Webtacular World Issue # 190, July 23, 2017

Greetings Webtaculators! Well, it’s been another crazy week in Washington. Republicans can’t pass a healthcare bill, Spicey is gone, “The Mooch” (are you serious?) is here, Sessions also met with the Russians, and Trump is seriously looking into a previously absurd legal hypo as to whether or not a president has the power to pardon themselves. Good grief. On to the news.
