Lawrence O'Donnell, host of The Last Word,

is currently ripping trump. Theme (so far) is that trump is the class clown -- but O'Donnell is calmly and seriously addressing it.

Rachel Maddow (TRMS on MSNBC) currently ripping

djt a new one. Sorry didn't post sooner. Have been too engrossed in show. She just questioned whether trump said stupid things about nuclear weapons b/c he didn't care to learn more or b/c he tried to learn it but couldn't. She then summed up -- lack of interest or aptitude to learn the topic. This is but one example from her.

Vox has some good articles/posts on the debate

at www.vox.com. I know Huffington Post and others do, too.

Take care, and have a wonderful evening!

Rachel Maddow on MSNBC just summed up djt hilariously!

Among other things, described his sniffing, faces, sighing, etc., ... and went on to say he's the person on the plane you'd wonder if had gone off his medication.

Time will tell but more possibilities ...

Indeed time will tell. Another possibility has to with police officers' original reason for going over to that apartment complex -- to look for a suspect (who was a different person from Mr. Scott). They presumably mistakenly thought Keith Scott was that suspect (that, or started in on him regardless, but surely not). So maybe police assumed that Mr Scott had a gun if they thought he was this suspect. Keep in mind the police sent multiple cars, starting with unmarked cars, so maybe they had reason to believe the real suspect (again, who was not Mr Scott) was armed and dangerous.

Needless to say, the mistake made about Mr Scott being that suspect is incredibly sad.

Speaking of the unmarked cars, it has been pointed out that Mr. Scott may have been initially confused about what was happening, not realizing these were police and possibly thinking he was robbed. I do not have a link at my fingertips, but I believe it was from an MSNBC program that had multiple people discussing it. Anyway, I think it is a very good point raised. Whether or not Mr Scott had a gun, even if he had a gun, he may have been terrified and confused about what to do. And add to that his TBI-related communication difficulties.

Needless to say, the multiple misunderstandings and misjudgments of Mr. Scott are incredibly sad.

Joy Reid on The Rachel Maddow Show right now.

They are discussing painful topic of loss of life in NC, possible legislative or policy approaches to ... not sure how to describe it ... disclosure of info by police departments and related topics.

So, it is a sad and difficult topic. But these two women doing great job.

Secret Service (fed tax $) has paid Trump $1.6 mil to ride on his plane (so far)

It's sick. More normal for Secret Service to pay campaign; but here, it's paying the candidate himself. And Trump would be using his plane, anyway. Of course, it's sick that he's a candidate & thus getting this service. And this is in addition to trump using campaign donations to pay suddenly jacked-up rent to trump properties during campaign events.

Anyway ... Here's the link on Secret Service paying the candidate:


Trump claims issue of Trump Foundation $ use "put to sleep" ...

by "latest report" they (supposedly) put out. A local reporter in Columbus, OH, managed to ask djt this question at some event (not a presser). Judd Legum with Think Progress (www.thinkprogress.org) covered it here (includes Legum's write-up & Ch. 6 abc affiliate video):


THANK YOU to tammywammy and pinboy3niner for pointing out and correcting link. Link above and in pinboy3niner's reply are correct.
