It’s Really Too Bad That Ernst & Young Isn’t Struggling to Account for Trump

It's Friday afternoon, half the internet is broken (including Disqus!) and it's a presidential election year; in short, it's a slow day.

Incredibly, we were saved from this drought in hell by this post from Politico: "Ernst and Young struggle to account for Trump."

Unfortunately, this is not a story about the Big 4 firm's struggles with an insufferable and shifty client. Good luck of that kind doesn't fall in our lap that often.

No, it's just a story about two GOP elected officials: Senator Joni Ernst (Iowa) and Representative Todd Young (Indiana) and the sticky spot they find themselves in trying to distance themselves from Donald Trump's outrageous statements about a "rigged election" without incurring his spittle-flecked wrath. A clever editor at Politico saw the "Ernst" and "Young" threw in the "account" and gave me something to offer some vapid commentary on. Our hat is off to you, nameless headline writer.
