Trump stalls traffic. Video shows people twerking on I-95 to pass time.

https://twitter.com/MiamiHerald/status/933138209881710593?s=17

As sportswriter and author Jeff Pearlman sat in standstill traffic in Palm Beach County Tuesday evening, he took to Twitter to share an only-in-South-Florida moment.

Two people got out of their car and began twerking in the middle of Interstate 95. He later found the the holdup was because President Donald Trump had arrived, en route to Mar-a-Lago.

“People keep getting out of the car dancing,” he said in a Twitter video. “Which I’ve gotta say is pretty good entertainment considering how sucky this is.”

The video shows a woman and another person bending over and shaking their rear ends for everyone to see.

Our country has so much potential and is such a fucking disgrace


Alex Azar, Trump’s HHS Pick, Has Already Been a Disaster for People With Diabetes

While he was at Eli Lilly, the company more than tripled the price of its best-selling insulin.

.....,

Alec Raeshawn Smith, age 26, was found dead in his apartment on June 27. He was rationing his insulin after he aged out of his parent’s insurance coverage.

........

Alex Azar was part of pharma-lobby group Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) until this year. When you ask pharma-lobby groups like BIO to explain why drugs cost so much, they’ll tell you “it’s complicated.”

In fact, it is simple. Drugs cost far too much. There are all sorts of ideas on how to bring prices down. Allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices. Let private citizens buy their drugs abroad. Mandate transparency on the dealings between drug companies, pharmacies, and middlemen called pharmacy benefit managers, as the State of Nevada did this year with SB539, a bill with bipartisan support.

We can expect Alex Azar to pursue none of these options. Looking at his track record, you can bet he will continue to back pharma-friendly approaches. Expect the Orwellian phrase “value-based pricing” to be commonplace. Since insulin literally keeps people alive, the Big 3 insulin producers have already tried to argue that value is a good reason to keep the prices high. The fact that insulin is almost 100 years old and costing pennies on the dollar to be produced means little when next quarter’s revenue is at stake.

Donald Trumps Response to Disaster Aid for California: Nothing

KEVIN DRUM
NOV. 20, 2017 10:17 PM

A few weeks ago, California requested $7.4 billion in disaster aid following the massive series of wildfires in the northern part of the state that killed 43 people and destroyed nearly 9,000 structures. Actually, let’s back up. That’s not quite accurate. California’s Democratic governor, its two Democratic senators, and its 39 Democratic members of Congress asked for $7.4 billion. With only one exception, California’s Republican delegation boycotted a request for disaster funding for their own state.

Yesterday the Trump administration responded to California’s request:

While the request includes anemic supplemental funding for states ravaged by hurricanes, it contains no funding whatsoever for rebuilding the communities in California devastated by the recent wildfires…. “For the Administration to not request even a single additional penny to help rebuild the communities devastated by the worst fires in California’s history is mind-boggling,” (said the two congressmen who led the disaster relief effort).

US Constitution - Republican Version




Here it is.

New Tax Policy Center analysis finds Senate bill raises taxes for

-- 9% of taxpayers in 2019

-- 12% of taxpayers in 2025

-- 50% of taxpayers in 2027

-- But in 2027, top 1% and 0.1% still get large tax cuts:

Some a.m. truth...

According to Trump a black guy who shoplifts should be locked up in a Chinese prison for 10 years, a black guy who sits during the anthem should be fired, and a white guy who rapes a 14 year old should be in the US Senate.

Fox News host: "Mr. President, it is not the fake news media that's your problem, - It's you."

“Forget about either comment not being presidential,” he said. “At what point does the president see such remarks don’t even border on being human?”

Cavuto said Trump’s attacks are like “using a bazooka to respond to a pea shooter.”

Then, he really laid into Trump for demanding “gratitude bordering on groveling,” and urged him to pick his battles.

“Last time I checked, you are the president of the United States,” he said. “Why don’t you act like it?”

Cavuto has made headlines before for his stinging criticism of the president.

In October, he warned Trump over attacks on fellow Republicans, telling the president “you are running out of friends.”

And in June, Cavuto told the president to stop scapegoating the media.

“Mr. President, it is not the fake news media that’s your problem,” he said. “It’s you.”
