  • FUNNY GUY: Donald Trump just joshing about treasonous Democrats.
Donald Trump on NFL players' who demonstrate against racism by kneeling during National Anthem (emphasis supplied):

“You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or you shouldn’t be playing,” he told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade in an interview broadcast Thursday morning. “You shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country. You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem. And the NFL owners did the right thing if that’s what they have done.”
Conform with a dishonest, disrespectful bully's idea of respect for America or leave the country? You tell me who exemplifies the American ideal more — Colin Kaepernick or Trump? A lecture on respect by Trump inevitably calls to mind so many images of his own lack of same.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
