It’s another super muggy day, and I’m very tired, because I slept intermittently last night. So please pardon my brevity.

From YouTube (Jimmy Kimmel Channel): The Porn Donald Trump Doesn’t Want You to See
Barf Bag Alert!!
Frankly, I don’t believe it. It overrated his performance. RESIST!!
From Daily Kos: Republican senators Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley have been back home in Iowa to hold small town halls in rural areas, places they probably thought would be ‘safe spaces’ from angry voters. WRONG. The rural voters who turned out were not happy with Donald Trump and they unloaded on Ernst and Grassley. In one particularly embarrassing moment for Sen. Ernst in Red Oak, Iowa (population 5,476), she drew laughter and scorn.
Pig Nuts Barf Bag Alert!!
Joni Pig Nuts is too stupid to know that both Sweden and Finland are between Norway and Russia. RESIST!!
From NY Times: It was a made-for-TV moment, perfect for a presidential campaign advertisement.
His fists clenched and his voice rising, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, delivered a 10-minute verbal thrashing to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen this week, recalling his “tears of rage” when he learned that President Trump had used vulgarities to describe African nations.
Not to be outdone, Senator Kamala Harris, Democrat of California, who was seated next to Mr. Booker, also skewered Ms. Nielsen, suggesting that Americans could draw a “reasonable inference” that she is racist.
The next presidential election is nearly three years away, but in the Capitol the race is already unfolding, with no fewer than six senators — Mr. Booker and Ms. Harris, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kirsten E. Gillibrand of New York and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — eyeing the Democratic nomination in 2020, with each angling to get to the left of the others.
Personally I think this is premature. Our eyes need to be focused on 2018, not 2020. RESIST!!
