Jane Sanders recalls moment she became convinced Bernie should run



.....a disabled veteran approached their table to thank the senator for the help his office provided in securing benefits.

Sanders' eyes welled with tears as she recalled what the man said next: "You've changed my life and if you run for president, I think that would be the best thing for the country."

As the man left, she remembered saying to her husband, "Okay, I think you have to do it."

“I am Batman.” — Donald Trump

“I am Batman.”

— Donald Trump, quoted by CNN, to a young boy while giving him a helicopter ride at the Iowa State Fair.


Into the helicopter went William, 9; Sean, 6; Brendan, 5; and Henry, who just turned 3. Their mother went with them. Henry got scared just before takeoff and left the aircraft to be with his father. The other boys remained. William brought a GoPro camera to capture the experience; a clip later wound up on Facebook.

"Mr. Trump," he said, aiming the camera at his benefactor.

"Yes," Trump said, pulling on the lapels of his jacket.

"Are you Batman?" the boy asked.

"I am Batman," Trump said.

Scene from right after Jesus bleached his hair.....






.........Speaking on satellite television (a technological wonder, whether we still recognize it or not, and no matter what we think of Fox News) in the twenty-first century, this sharp, degree-bearing professional American has just asked, with a straight face, a senator (who happens himself to be a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Law) if he is receiving messages from a supernatural being. Yet no one in the audience broke into guffaws or even chuckled. And, of course, no one cried out with irate incredulity at the ludicrousness of the supposition implicit in the question (that an imaginary heavenly ogre could possibly be beaming instructions down to one of his earthling subjects). But since the supernatural being in question goes by the name of “God,” in the clown show that was the Republican debate, everyone – audience, MC, and the clowns themselves – simultaneously took leave of their senses and judged the matter at hand legit.

Bernie Sanders: "I apologize, we left the helicopter at home"

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) took a swipe at fellow presidential candidate Donald Trump's high-flying antics at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday, joking that he had forgotten to bring an aircraft to tango with Trump's private helicopter.

"I apologize, we left the helicopter at home," the Democratic hopeful told NPR's Don Gonyea. "It's in the garage," Sanders added as Trump departed the fairgrounds in his $7 million helicopter.
