  • TRUMP CARD: How the GOP presidential primary could get even crazier with this one weird trick.
Donald Trump always plays the media by pretending to run for president, but there's a lot of reporting this week suggesting that it will really happen this time (and the betting markets seem to agree). 

The hilarity upside here is just astronomical. Remember, Fox News will only invite the top ten candidates base on polling averages to its key early debates. Trump, a reality television diva, has name recognition and a tiny following of batty devotees. He'd almost certainly crack the top ten ahead of more run-of-the-mill establishment candidates. And then…who knows! Trump's id is a dumpster fire. Would he slap Jeb Bush in the face with his toupee? Would he reveal secret evidence that President Obama is a member of ISIS? Possible! 

From Bloomberg Politics:

Business executive Donald Trump appears poised to announce his entry into the presidential race on Tuesday and will travel to Iowa and New Hampshire immediately after making his intentions known, the Des Moines Register reports.

In Iowa, Trump plans an evening rally at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines. An invitation describing a "MAKE AMERIA (sic) GREAT RALLY" was sent to area residents, and gave further indication that Trump has made up his mind, the Register reported. 

Run, The Donald, Run! He makes his announcement Tuesday.

    The federal criminal information released as part of former lobbyist Rusty Cranford's June 7 guilty plea on bribery charges describes a Person 9 who worked for the nonprofit healthcare provider Preferred Family Healthcare and was associated with Cranford. The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
