Happy Birthday, Jimmy Carter!


This one's easy for me to remember because I've shared a birthday with him for 62 years

Trump Criticizes Flint Pastor But Misstates Key Facts About Their Encounter

Source: NPR

I was in the room as a pool reporter at the time and here's what happened..........she didn't appear nervous at all
"The audience was saying let him speak, let him speak," Trump told Fox and Friends.

That isn't true. In fact, several audience members began to heckle Trump, asking pointed questions about whether he racially discriminated against black tenants as a landlord.

And that's when Timmons — who Trump said Thursday had planned to ambush him — stepped in to defend Trump, saying the Republican nominee was "a guest of my church, and you will respect him."

"Thank you. Thank you, pastor," Trump responded.

The pointed questions for Trump continued as Trump wrapped up his remarks, though — and that's the moment when the press traveling with Trump was hastily escorted out of the room.

Donald Trump says Pastor was "a nervous mess"

So nervous she let him know he could not use her pulpit for political attacks

Trump attacks Flint pastor who shut him down as nervous, shaky mess

edit to add: This woman, who was strong and steady enough to stop a presidential candidate from using the pulpit to make political attacks, is named Rev Faith Green Timmons

No attack on the woman's "stamina", so he's slipping I guess?

Newsweek tomorrow: Trump company involved with foreign leaders and criminals

per Maddow. Article not out yet but ties Trump Org to foreign countries. Big bust, will compel him to pledge to cut ties. No evidence of illegal activity directly, just ties to nefarious types.

Could get interesting.

A "Thank You" from Hillary

Hi, {Rose Siding}!

I just wanted to thank you and everyone on this team for all the well-wishes you’ve sent.

And since I've been hearing from so many people today, I wanted to tell you personally that I'm feeling fine and getting better. (It doesn't hurt to be able to spend some time at home with my dogs.)

Like anyone who’s ever been home sick from work, I’m just anxious to get back out there. There's so much at stake in this election, and we only have 57 days left in this campaign -- I want to make each one count.

Thank you for being the warmest, toughest, and most dependable team I could hope for -- you've lifted me up, today and every day.

- H
