MELBOURNE, Fla. - No more tickets are available for President Donald Trump's rally on Saturday in Melbourne.

"There are no more passes available," said Lori Booker, a spokeswoman for Orlando Melbourne International Airport, the location of Trump's 5 p.m. visit.

About 9,000 free passes were made available at noon Wednesday and were gone by early Thursday, Booker said. 


"I hear the tickets, you can't get them," Trump said at the White House Thursday.

Hey there, astrology buffs! Such a day was this, eh?!?? So I thought, hmmm, what sign

is the moon in today? What influences were in gear here?

Welp, Scorpio appeared, first thing in the morning...I don't know that much about this stuff, but I do believe Scorpio's a very (very!) heavy, deep, water sign...can signify profound transformations...

Well, I sure feel "transformed" after THAT presser!! Holy friggoli!

Gen. Mattis said this morning that he believes Russia has indeed been meddling in the

elections of various democracies. I feel strongly that his stance here is in MAJOR conflict with his so-called commander-in-chief's view, and that trouble's abrewin between the General and the idiot - am I making too big of a deal over this?? - - - like, will DFT dare challenge his "MAD DOG" on this? - ie, is another departure slouching its way towards drumpfville??

From The Hill this morning:

Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday said that there was "very little doubt" Russia has attempted to interfere in democratic elections in the past.

"There is very little doubt that they have either interfered or attempted to interfere in a number of elections in democracies," Mattis said while answering questions at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

He added that he does not feel compelled to respond to Russian officials who were not pleased with his call to deal with Moscow from a position of strength.
"I have no need to respond to the Russian statement at all. NATO has always stood for military strength and protection of democracies and the freedoms we intend to pass on to our children," he said.

Malcolm Nance's take (3 tweets, edited for readability)

1. Basic Facts: Flynn as fallguy. @potus notified Russian intent to lift sanctions since 7/2016. Trump had to direct Flynn calls & content. 

2. CI & acting AG Yates warned them of potential crimes. Pence covered for Flynn. Now Trump claims "Flynn is liar" at a liars convention.

3. Trump can't cover this up now. Counterintelligence & now AG office info is an avalanche. Coverup will be the crime. #investigatetrump
