I think I’ve been an incredible example to my kids of what not to do. – Woody Harrelson
Today’s quick hits deal with these issues:

- Who is America?
- NBC/WSJ poll
- It’s My Fault, Tiger
ALL CAPS TRUMP:
Kind of like a teenager having an argument on social media, President Donald Trump tweeted a warning message Sunday evening to the Iranian President (in all CAPS):
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!
According to Fox News, Trump’s tweet came on the heels of Rouhani’s warning to Trump that hostile policies could lead to the “mother of all wars” with Iran.
Who is America?
Jason Spencer needs to call his office. Spencer is a Republican state representative from Georgia who is the latest (and probably the worst) person to make Sacha Baron Cohen’s show, Who is America?
Spencer claims he was tricked into using the “N” word (several times) and pulling down his pants in what he thought was the shooting of a video about terrorist training for elected officials. (The Daily Beast)
As I was watching it, I thought this trick could be played on any number of Montana legislators. Maybe it will be.
Cohen got former Vice President Dick Cheney, too. He asked Cheney about his favorite war and even had him sign a water jug that Cohen’s character (Col. Morad) said he had used when waterboarding his wife.
After the first week, I thought there’s no way he can beat this show. After week two, I wonder how the heck he will top it.
NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll:
A new NBC/WSJ poll is out and President Donald Trump’s overall job-approval rating in the poll stands at 45 percent among registered voters — up 1 point from June — while 52 percent of voters disapprove of his job.
The Republicans love him – 88% — the highest of his presidency. Democratic pollster Fred Yang was quoted saying, “The more Trump gets criticized by the media, the more his base seems to rally behind him.”
There are many other issues addressed in the poll. Check out the whole poll HERE.
It’s My Fault:
It’s my fault. Tiger Woods was leading The Open when I started watching. He soon dropped to 6th. He finished tied for sixth. (ESPN)
