Regarding Pompeo"s remarks this morning on FTN.

Twice he responded to questions about apparent discrepancies in some of Trump's statements regarding Russia and election interference by saying (paraphrasing here) that the Presidents tweets had made his position quite clear.

So this is where we seem to be, folks. The POTUS rolls out his foreign policy on Twitter. Apparently no discussion with staff or government agency heads, no official announcements, just a man and his phone. I'm really struggling with this concept.

Bette Midler

@BetteMidler
#Barr is so deep in #Trump’s pocket, he can probably shake hands with Lindsey Graham in there. Altho he’d have to reach WAAAAY down.

Jesus Christ. Seriously, that's who Steve King is comparing himself to.

Steve King says he understands how Jesus Christ felt after months of criticism in the House

U.S. Rep. Steve King said that after facing months of criticism for comments in the New York Times about white supremacy and nationalism, he better understands the persecution Jesus Christ felt.

The 4th District representative made the comments in response to a question from the Rev. Pinky Person of the Faith In Christ Fellowship, who told King during a town hall Tuesday in Cherokee that she was concerned that "Christianity is really being persecuted."

“When I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers — you know we just passed through Easter and Christ's passion — and I have better insight into what He went through for us, partly because of that experience," King told about 30 attendees the town hall at Western Iowa Tech Community College.

I just do not have words for this.

Iowa's longest-serving GOP lawmaker joins the Democrats because of Trump

Washington (CNN)Iowa's longest-serving Republican state lawmaker is ditching the party in a protest of what he called President Donald Trump's "unacceptable behavior" and is joining the Democrats.

State Rep. Andy McKean, a moderate from eastern Iowa whose 29 years in the legislature include stints in the House and Senate, announced his party switch at a news conference Tuesday. He called Trump "a poor example for the nation and particularly for our children" and said he'll seek re-election in 2020 as a Democrat.

"With the 2020 president election looming on the horizon, I feel as a Republican that I need to be able to support the standard bearer of our party. Unfortunately, that is not something I am able to do," McKean said Tuesday of Trump.

"He sets, in my opinion, a poor example for the nation and particularly for our children by personally insulting -- often in a crude and juvenile fashion -- those who disagree with him, being a bully at a time when we are attempting to discourage bullying, his frequent disregard for the truth and his willingness to ridicule or marginalize people for their appearance, ethnicity or disability," he said.

I hope all these new converts are ready to move to the left instead of trying to move the Democratic party to the right.

Florida Mail Bomb Suspect Cesar Sayoc Blames Steroid Abuse

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Cesar Sayoc, the South Florida man accused of mailing pipe bombs to prominent critics of President Donald Trump, blames more than 40 years of steroid abuse for his actions.

Sayoc, 57, made the claim in lengthy and rambling letters to a federal judge that were posted in his court case file on Tuesday, according to CBS New York. His attorneys say a psychiatrist will address his substance abuse ahead of his sentencing hearing in August.

He faces the possibility of a life sentence on 65 criminal counts, including using weapons of mass destruction and illegal mailing of explosives with intent to kill.

Sayoc was arrested on October 26 in Plantation outside an auto parts store. He had been living in a van covered with stickers of President Donald Trump and showing images of some of the president’s opponents with crosshairs over their faces.

Do you think Trump will find a reason to pardon him? He sounds like Trump's idea of "some very fine people".

Thought for the day.

Age should not have its face lifted, but it should rather teach the world to admire wrinkles as the etchings of experience and the firm line of character. Clarence Day


I'll try to remember this the next time my great-granddaughter strokes my cheeks and says "Granny, I like your stripes".
