Why Did Trump Cancel His Trip To England?

Rural Iowa voters laugh out loud at Republican Senator Joni Ernsts defense of Trump.

ERNST: “He is standing up for a lot of the countries that— where we have seen, um—“
Q: “Name a few. Could you name a few?”
ERNST: “Yeah, you bet. Norway is one of them.”

Mar-A-Lago Kitchen Cited For 15 Health Code Violations

The Miami Herald reports:

A year after the discovery of foods that could sicken people at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, his Winter White House was just cited by inspectors for poor maintenance. Never mind that it costs $200,000 in initiation fees to join the exclusive club, which has two restaurants and a bed-and-breakfast. Fresh state records show the B&B needed emergency repairs in order to pass the latest inspection in November.

Trump’s club, located on a beachfront property where the historic main house was built in the 1920s for cereals heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, was cited Nov. 8 for two violations deemed high priority: the lack of smoke detectors capable of alerting the hearing impaired through flashing bright lights; and slabs of concrete missing from a staircase, exposing steel rebar that could cause someone to fall.

The November inspections of the club’s two main kitchens, meanwhile, yielded a total 15 violations. Among the no-nos was the staff’s failure to track the freshness of potentially hazardous foods, including curry sauce dated Oct. 21 pulled from a freezer and improperly marked, milk stored at 49 degrees instead of the safe temperature of 41 degrees, and cases of hot dogs stored on the ground of the walk-in freezer.


One layer AND a tie??? Sad!

Bannon to face House Russia investigators Tuesday
Bannon will be interviewed behind closed doors

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief strategist whose political fortunes have taken a roller-coaster fall in the wake of his comments in a scathing book on Trump, will be questioned on Tuesday by lawmakers about the Trump team and Russia.

Bannon's interview with the House Intelligence Committee will be his first appearance on Capitol Hill before any of the committees investigating Russian election meddling and possible collusion by the Trump campaign with Russian officials during the 2016 election.

Bannon's testimony is highly anticipated thanks to the Michael Wolff book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," in which Bannon is quoted disparaging Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, calling their June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton "treasonous."

Bannon's comments in Wolff's book prompted Trump to effectively disown him --- Trump said Bannon had "lost his mind" and nicknamed him "Sloppy Steve" --- and also led to Bannon's removal from Breitbart News last week. Bannon has expressed regret over a delay in responding to the book, and he has since tried to walk back some of his comments

Joy Reid: "So what Jeff Flake is saying is that he has proudly voted for all of Stalin's judges..."

Sen. @JeffFlake: "It is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies..."

"Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies," Flake plans to say in the Senate remarks.

"It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase 'enemy of the people,' that even (later Soviet leader) Nikita Khrushchev forbad its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin to for the purpose of 'annihilating such individuals' who disagreed with the supreme leader," Flake will say.

"This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially those of us in the president's party. For they are shameful and repulsive statements."



"If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way."

Dr. King was 26 when the Montgomery bus boycott began. He started small, rallying others who believed their efforts mattered, pressing on through challenges and doubts to change our world for the better. A permanent inspiration for the rest of us to keep pushing towards justice.


Trump honors Martin Luther King Jr. with civic work and community service - oh, wait - by golfing


On Friday, Trump said:

I will now sign the proclamation making January 15, 2018 the Martin Luther King, Jr., Federal Holiday and encourage all Americans to observe this day with acts of civic work and community service in honor of Dr. King’s extraordinary life -- and it was extraordinary indeed -- and his great legacy.

And now, on January 15, via the press pool:

President's motorcade arrived at Trump International Golf Course at 9:07 a.m.
