I am truly shaken by Kelly's Press Conference The media have fed into this belief that Kelly is somehow this Savior of our Republic. The White Knight -- literally White. The brave man who will wrestle Trump to the ground when he tries to burn down the universe. They covered for Kelly, they made him out to be somehow explaining Trump to us in a compassionate and clear way.

Breitbart, Palin spread fake news story blaming California fires on an immigrant man A collection of right-wing websites teamed up with half-term nitwit Sarah Palin to spread a fake news story that appeared to pin the Northern California wildfires that have tragically killed at least 40 people, onto an immigrant man who was arrested at a park in Sonoma, California. Jesus Fabian Gonzales -- who "often sleeps in the park and is well-known to law enforcement."

Corker: virtually all Senate Republicans know Trump is a liability. Impeachment coming? Because Corker is not running for re-election, he need not fear reprisals in the form of votes against him from the Trump cult -- so he's an ideal Republican to light the fuse for what must be done. He may be on the way out, but his vote is as good as any other senator's for 15 months.

Donald Trump finally notices Puerto Rico -- long enough to blame them for their problems The responsibility for what's happening Puerto Rico can't be shuffled off or evaded. Maria may have damaged the island, but Donald Trump is turning that disaster into a lingering catastrophe. More than half of the Americans on the island don't have safe drinking water, and after prolonged silence, Trump decided this would be a good time to emphasize to Puerto Ricans the money they owe to Wall Street.

He also says the standoff will continue and they will not give up the refuge. Given the previous federal judge said there was no chance of release while the standoff is still going on and Ammon Bundy and his wife Lisa reached out to the remaining militants at the refuge, pleading for them to leave, this isn't likely to help Ammon's case.
