"9 hours of 'Executive Time': Trump's unstructured days define his presidency"

By ELIANA JOHNSON and DANIEL LIPPMAN 10/29/2018 05:01 AM EDT

President Donald Trump had about three times as much free time planned for last Tuesday as work time, according to his private schedule. The president was slated for more than nine hours of “Executive Time,” a euphemism for the unstructured time Trump spends tweeting, phoning friends and watching television. Official meetings, policy briefings and public appearances — typically the daily work of being president — consumed barely more than three hours of his day.

Addison Russell Suspended 40 Games for Violating MLB Domestic Violence Policy

Source: Bleacher Report

Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell is facing a lengthy suspension that will carry into the 2019 season as a result of Major League Baseball's investigation into domestic abuse allegations.

Reidy-Russell detailed the extent of Russell's physical, emotional and verbal abuse in a post on her personal blog on Sept. 19. She also described a pattern of infidelity by Russell.

"It wasn't sitting right with me," Reidy-Russell said. "I took it upon myself to do what I needed to do regardless what could happen financially. I know that I'm going to be OK. ... I shouldn't have to feel like I can't speak out to help someone else in order to protect someone that hurt me."

In Targeting Reporter, Justice Dept. Backs Trump's Anti-Press Rhetoric

The revelation on Thursday that the Justice Department had seized years of phone and email records from Ali Watkins, a New York Times journalist, raised concerns that the Trump administration was adopting a highly aggressive approach, continuing a crackdown that ramped up in the Obama years.

“We’ve had other presidents who took action against the press,” Mr. Abrams said. “But we’ve never had a president who was more publicly engaged in the denigration on a daily basis of the press, in attacking its product and its good faith.”

He added, of the Watkins case: “One asks, one wonders, is this the first of much more to come?”

McCaskill: Clinton should be more careful in how she describes Trump voters


Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said in an interview on Sunday that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton needs to be more careful in how she describes President Trump's voters.

"For those of us that are in states that Trump won we would really appreciate if she would be more careful and show respect to every American voter and not just the ones who voted for her," McCaskill told MSNBC's Kasie Hunt.

McCaskill also spoke out against Clinton's remarks earlier this month.

“Those are kind of fighting words for me, because I’m partial to Missouri voters,” she said.

“I think they were expressing their frustration with the status quo. I may not have agreed with their choice, but I certainly respect them.

And I don’t think that’s the way you should talk about any voter, especially ones in my state.”

I have to agree with McCaskill on this one. Blaming the voters is a poor strategy for Democrats. Focus on the opponent and the issues.
