Dianne Feinstein is running for re-election to the US Senate. If she is re-elected, by the end of her next six year term, she will be 90. If, God help us, Donald Trump runs for re-election in 2020, he'll be 74 at the time.

43 calls out 45 for Russia connections and emboldening racists.

Side note, Bush the First recently surpassed Reagan to become the second-longest-lived person to have been president (he will reach first place on Black Friday). Jimi Carter is some four months younger than Bush, staving off brain cancer and building houses. Old guys may be viable presidents, in terms of physically being alive at least.

Trump Gives Administration a 10 for Puerto Rico Recovery

I agree with his assessment. I give the federal response to the hurricane in PR a 10 (out of 100).

I'd give it a -3. Would be a -10 except someone did show up.

That was a jump shot? I thought he was having back spasms.

Recently Trump has appeared to suggest, with no evidence whatsoever, that the FBI and Russia may have collaborated to finance the 'renowned' dossier that pointed at links between his team and the Kremlin.
Trumps said on Twitter earlier: 'Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?'

Seems like this wild claim comes after two bosses of Fusion GPS, the firm that basically produced the dossier, refused to provide answers to any questions in a private meeting with the House Intelligence Agency. Trump has denied all the allegations, of course.

Trump has announced he will not be visiting the fire damage in California. I would have thought that it was because California voted for Hillary, except that Puerto Rico didn't even vote.

Spin control from the Chief of Staff:
Quote:
Mr. Kelly said that Mr. Trump had tried, in the call, to express what Mr. Kelly had talked to him about ahead of time — that people like her husband were doing what they loved, and what they had chosen to do, when they were killed serving the country.
Hey, Kelly, your boss is President Mushmouth. What the fuck did you think would happen?
