It’s 3:30 a.m. on the west and so far President Trump has not tweeted.
I, your humble author, have some real life stuff today. Halodoc has been kind enough to step in and cover the tweets in my absent.
In Other News
At noon eastern, as the News Blender reported on Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee Democrats will be reading the full Mueller Report. The presser prior to the reading is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.
Hallo, ‘Blenders. Tiff is off doing adulting things. Man, that was an early morning for her, thank goodness for the coffee rule.
In case you missed it, yesterday POTUS tweeted about #PeaceOfficerMemorialDay.
And re-tweeted the White House Twitter-feed, showing the White House was lit up in blue last night in continued observance of Peace Officer Memorial Day.
… while slipping a re-tweet in between from The Trump Organization showing a brief video clip of Bryson DeChambeau & Dustin Johnson plugging Trump Ferry Point golf course ahead of the PGA Championship that is being played this week at Bethpage State Park, in Farmingdale, NY.
So far he has re-tweeted himself twice about the dastardly “Fake News Washington Post and even more Fake News New York Times” who “are writing stories that there is infighting with respect to my strong policy in the Middle East. There is no infighting whatsoever…. ….Different opinions are expressed and I make a decisive and final decision – it is a very simple process. All sides, views, and policies are covered. I’m sure that Iran will want to talk soon.”
And one tweet today about NYC’s Mayor de Blasio decision to officially enter the 2020 Democratic primaries presidential race, pronouncing that, “He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man” and …
1. NYC HATES HIM! … [he says with no self-awareness whatsoever.]
More on de Blasio’s official launch:
Bill de Blasio, the Democratic mayor of New York City, announced on Thursday that he was running for president, seeking to show that his brand of urban progressive leadership can be a model for the rest of the nation.
It will be a steep challenge: He becomes the 23rd Democrat to enter the presidential race, and he does so against the counsel of many of his trusted advisers, and in the face of two centuries of history.
No sitting mayor has been elected to the presidency, and if Mr. de Blasio, 58, is to be the first, he must overcome daunting deficits in polls and fund-raising.New York Times
“His announcement, in a three-minute video titled “Working People First,” comes after months of groundwork that has included visits to early presidential primary states, a fund-raiser in Boston and a circuslike news conference this week in the lobby of Trump Tower.”
