Caught My Eye…

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. – Aldous Huxley

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

Topics that I am providing commentary on today include Rob Quist, Greg Gianforte, Steve Daines, Amanda Curtis, Donald Trump, Russia, Mike Flynn, the Freedom Caucus, and much more!
