Later, 8:17 p.m. Central Time: only because my wife was watching CNN was I watching it when Erin Burnett ("Out Front") and Anderson Cooper were reporting on the blast in Manchester, UK, that killed at least 19 and injured another 50. Obviously from the very beginning, it was a terrorist attack, but both Erin and Anderson (bless their hearts) were saying there was no evidence that this was a terrorist attack, and had talking heads to confirm that there was nothing to suggest this was a terrorist attack, despite the fact that the Drudge Report banner already blared that it was a "nail bomb." I know that Erin and Anderson (newsreaders) would not have time to scan the internet for updates but their producers certainly let them down.
Both Bannon and Priebus leave Mideast tour early; heading back to Washington, DC. Much, much speculation. I wonder if they were on same plane.
John Podesta appears to be losing it. He's probably not part of Hillary's inner circle any more.
New Supreme Court justice Gorsuch dissents as Supreme Court upholds ban on big-money gifts to parties. Good news for GOP.
Iran: sad to see
Snowflakes: wow, regardless of where you stand politically, there is no question that the New York elite are still hung up on the fact that Trump defeated Hillary. In the current issue of The New Yorker these three essays:
- "Trump' Constitutional Crisis," David Cole, ACLU lawyer; the writer's constitutional crisis, Comey being fired, who, by the way, served at the "pleasure" of the president
- "How He Used Facebook to Win," Sue Halpern, who apparently was unaware that Hillary had full access to social media and the entire mainstream media eating out of her hand
- "A Better Way to Choose Presidents," Eric Maskin and Amartya Sen; the essay begins with the French election but that was just a "bait and switch"; the last half of the essay was on the Electoral College -- another horse that has been beaten to death
Wow, the New York elite just can't get over it, can they?
Another tarmac talk about grandchildren? James Comey's testimony delayed so that he can talk to Robert Mueller. There are only two reasons Comey would want to meet with Mueller: a) to talk about their grandchildren; and/or, b) to get the stories straight. Just kidding. There are at least a dozen other reasons.
