People will generally accept facts as truth only if the facts agree with what they already believe. – Andy Rooney
Today’s quick hits deal with these issues:
- Donald Trump, Jr.
- Sarah Huckabee Sanders
- George F. Will
Donald Trump, Jr.
Donald Trump, Jr., came to Montana Friday to campaign for Republican U.S. Senator Candidate Matt Rosendale.
I don’t know how many people attended the event or much about what was said, but probably the biggest news to come out of the event was who accompanied Junior to Montana: Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle.
Vanity Fair covered the event with this headline:
Donald Trump Jr. Takes Kimberly Guilfoyle On Every Woman’s Dream Date—the Montana Republican Convention
Vanity Fair also reported the couple were going fishing and then shooting while in Montana.
Big Sky Country is a great place for a honeymoon…
Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
It looks like it’s getting harder for members of the President Donald Trump’s administration to get a good meal these days.
Last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was “heckled” while dining at a Mexican restaurant in Washington D.C. Axios reported that senior adviser Stephen Miller was also heckled at Espita Mezcaleria, a Mexican restaurant in Washington’s hip Shaw neighborhood.
The President’s Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was refused service at the “Red Hen” restaurant because she works for Trump. She tweeted this from her White House Twitter account:
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so
Of course, Twitter went wild when the news came out. One of my favorites came from @MarkAProvost in response to Sanders’ tweet:
If a baker can’t be forced to make a cake for a gay couple, why should a restaurant be forced to cook for you?
I don’t think we need to worry about members of the Trump Team missing meals – that’s not the big thing here. Reportedly the owner of the restaurant received death threats after the incident became public. It’s just another example of how divided we are as a country.
George F. Will:
In his recent column, George Will tells readers to vote against Republicans this November:
The congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of the Constitution’s Article I powers that they have been too invertebrate to use against the current wielder of Article II powers.
Like many folks, it appears Will has become disenchanted with today’s Republican Party.
