Quote for the Day…
Success isn’t about how your life looks to others. It’s about how it feels to you. – Michelle Obama
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Kayleigh McEnany
- Stay in Your Lane, Bro…
- 60 Minutes/Ukraine
- The Western Word Poll
- Reading Assignments
The Western Word was one of the first to report that Kayleigh McEnany, the former White House Press Secretary and current member of Fox News, was in Great Falls on Saturday, April 2, to speak at the Foothills Community Christian School’s spring banquet.
Several people posted photos on social media with McEnany, including the sheriff of Cascade County, Jesse Slaughter. Slaughter is running for reelection this year. His post got several likes, but it also had its negative remarks about McEnany and Trump.
It has been entertaining to read the comments, especially when a city commissioner chimes in and tries to be the “moral conscience” of Great Falls.
When you post information on your Facebook page, especially if you are a public official and your posts are for the public to read, you should expect some blowback. We will see the rookie sheriff use his photo with McEnany for his campaign?
See the Facebook post HERE.
STAY IN YOUR LANE, BRO…
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen joined nine state attorneys general in opposing the confirmation of President Biden’s nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court because of her history of leniency toward child predators.
I don’t think anyone cares what Knudsen thinks about something that is way above his paygrade.
Only two Montana officials, U.S. Senators Jon Tester and Steve Daines, will get to vote on Jackson. We already know how they will vote, and we also know that Jackson will most likely be confirmed.
Read the utterly senseless press release from the Montana DOJ HERE.
In case you missed 60 Minutes from Sunday night, Scott Pelley looks at how Russia is attacking hospitals and healthcare workers in Ukraine, which is a violation of the Geneva Convention.
Check out the video/story HERE.
The world needs to stop Russia.
