This was one of many remarkable (and not in a good way) moments in the free-for-all that was the House hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok. Strzok made perfectly clear that he did and still does hold all the anti-Trump bias demonstrated in his text messages to his lover, Lisa Page, while denying that they impacted his actual behavior on the job, which involved the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russia election meddling (and associated question of Trump campaign collusion) investigation.
I thought Rep. Gohmert's line about Strzok's wife was way over the line, but online it was clear that lots of Trump supporters loved it:
This isn't really going to have any impact on American politics, but I think this is one of the worst things President Trump has done in the world of foreign policy. No need to watch the video...it's just the picture you need.
Trump gave an interview to a British newspaper slamming Prime Minister May's handling of Brexit and saying that her now-rival Boris Johnson would make a good prime minister. This on the same day that May arranged an incredible welcome for Trump, the day after she backed his planned meeting with Vladimir Putin, and the day before she's arranged for Trump to meet Queen Elizabeth. Trump's words were counter-productive and will serve to prove to would-be allies that he cannot be trusted and should not be supported.
I always wonder how business executives feel when a stock goes up bigly because they left the company. It just happened the the founder of Papa John's pizza:
This guy, who was drunk at the time, is a complete and utter ignoramus and jackass, and I'm fine with him facing misdemeanor charges. But now Cook County is charging him with a felony "hate crime" violation. Is that really OK, given that he doesn't seem to touch or even threaten the victim? By the way, the cop in the video has now resigned...
