It's Sesame Street Day!!!

This day in 1969, Sesame Street aired for the first time. I was watching with my not quite 3 year old son and my newborn daughter. He was hooked from the first episode.

This sounds about right. The White House on grabbing women.

Trump is the TruckNutz of politics, the fake orange rubber dangle on the Rollin' Coal trailer-hitch of America.

Trump warns in Missouri that "if Democrats gain power on Tuesday, one of their very first projects will be a socialist takeover of health care... The Democrat plan would obliterate Obamacare."

Now the orange one is trying to tell his followers that he will be the defender of Obamacare??????

Trump says he regrets the tone he used during first 2 years in office

President Donald Trump said he regrets the tone he has used during his first two years in office during an exclusive interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Trump said if there was anything he would try and redo it would be to soften his tone.

"I would like to have a much softer tone. I feel to a certain extent I have no choice, but maybe I do," Trump said. He attributed his tone during his first two years in office to wanting to get things done on his agenda, adding that he could have been softer in his delivery.

The president also stated that he had doubts about using a softer tone because he might have been "swamped" by his opposition.

He's facing the fact that Democrats are probably taking the House and he's trying to "make nice". Too little, too late, orange one. Let the investigations begin!

I keep hearing that a large turnout favors Democrats. I certainly hope that's right.

Is this supposed to be some kind of history lesson? What are they supposed to be celebrating, other that bigotry and hatred?

Trump says he will restrict asylum, claims troops will shoot at rock throwers

President Donald Trump on Thursday claimed he would sign an executive order "next week" aimed at restricting US asylum rules, as he seeks to use a group of Central American migrants heading for the US border as part of his midterm election closing argument.

He also suggested that the US troops he dispatched to the US-Mexico border could fire on someone in the migrant caravan if the person threw rocks or stones at them.

In a meandering speech at the White House about immigration, Trump recycled many of the talking points he touts on the campaign trail -- but offered little in the way of concrete ways to address the problems he embellished.

Trump said his administration is finalizing an executive action that would limit asylum claims to legal ports of entry, claiming migrants frequently abuse the system by fabricating their need for asylum.

Trump wants a war and he has chosen immigrants as the enemy. He won't be satisfied until someone is killed.
