Randy Rainbow’s scathing song parodies usually derive from Broadway, but the great satirist does pop, too. His latest, which opens with a mock interview of Attorney General William Barr, transforms Dua Lipa’s hit New Rules into No Rules For Donald.

Peering into Trump’s disordered brain, Rainbow warbles:

One, ignore the law, pretend the Constitution isn’t there anymore

Two, stick up for thugs no matter what they’re guilty of.

Three, pick up the phone and pressure foreign governments to win your elections, ’til Republicans let you do it all again. There are no rules for Donald.

Presidential enablers Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, Devin Nunes and Mitch McConnell all come in for their fair share of abuse, too.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) declared on Sunday morning that she will oppose any Republican attempt to move ahead with a Supreme Court nomination to fill the seat left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

"For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election," said Murkowski in a statement released by her office. "Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed."

The Alaska Republican joined Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in opposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's announced determination to replace Ginsburg with a Trump appointee. If McConnell loses two more Republican votes, he will be unable to move a nomination before Election Day.
