Edit: This is a Facebook video. Guess it doesn’t embed. Sorry

Trump plays his base again.

Aside from getting Gorsuch confirmed, Trump has accomplished nothing the right-wingers voted for.

He’s about to fail for a second time at repealing the ACA.

So, how to get the right-wing base to stand solidly with him? Make a huge deal out of the national Anthem and the flag.

These people are easily manipulated by hot-button emotional issues over symbolism. Trump knows it. That’s why he’s doing this.

Does anyone believe he gives a crap about those things? The guy has NO core principles outside of self-promotion and “winning.”

Hurricane Maria update. Likely CAT 5 at 8pm advisory

8pm yesterday = 982 mb, 80 mph winds

8pm today = Roughly 925 mb, 160+ mph winds

11pm Irma advisory - track even farther to the west (edit with official track)

than it was on the 5pm and 8pm tracks.

Another explosion at the Arkema plant. (Video)

Waiting for Trump to make a statement like: "A beautiful plume of smoke, the likes of which haven't been seen in quite a period of time. Long time, folks. Believe me. And the people. The great people, amazing people, unbelievable people...they tell me they've never seen anything like it. That, I can tell you."
