Debatable Qualifications for President
Joe Biden says he’s “the most qualified person in the country to be president.” If he can claw his way past Sparticus, the non-hispanic Beto, the non-native American Cherokee from Massachusetts and others to debate the Stable Genius the 2020 campaign might be even more entertaining than the 2016 campaign. Come to think of it, it should be entertaining even if Joe doesn’t get past that bunch.
Trump denounces Democrats as an “angry mob.”
But Democrats insist they’re not a mob.
The president ordered the release of FBI files related to the 2017 application for a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page.
So, here’s how three different news outlets played the story:
NPR – Trump Orders Declassification Of FBI Documents Sought By House Republicans
New York Post –Trump says order to release FBI files may be ‘crowning achievement’
CNN – Trump inflames war on Justice Dept. by declassifying Russia docs
President Trump’s policy is “if you hit me I hit you harder.” So he spent last week hitting the mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico over the death toll due to Hurricane Maria.
He claims “We Did a fantastic job in Puerto Rico.”
A GeorgeWashington University study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government says the hurricane killed 2,975 people. But FEMA administrator Brock Long says many of those deaths occurred “six months after the fact.” The initial number of deaths confirmed by coroners is 64. Trump’s preferred number is 18. That was the official count when he visited two weeks after the storm.
Meanwhile Obama has entered the mid term fray and he’s taking credit for the current economic boom.
Democrats are trying to keep their impeachment hopes under the radar. For example, Jimmy Carter’s not talking about it and he says you shouldn’t either. Besides, other Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi worry impeachment talk could backfire.
But former Labor Secretary Robert Reich has a different approach. He doesn’t want impeachment talk either. In fact he doesn’t want Trump impeached at all.
He wants the election annulled.
