The 7 Things You Should Be Talking About Today

1. Trump’s poll numbers are improving and he has a pretty good week as his numbers trend in the right direction

— A week of accomplishments that Americans can see actual progress grew throughout the week, the scuttling of the Iran Deal, 3 prisoners released from North Korean labor camp, a date for the U.S.-North Korean summit and 5 ISIS leaders captured.

— Not all was roses though, his former personal attorney continues to be exposed as a opportunist and a problem, the White House denies he had an actual access.

2. Sue Bell Cobb’s sex offender campaign aide turned himself in after breaking the law… again.

— After AL.com tried to offer a redemption story for the former campaign worker for Sen. Doug Jones and Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodifin, someone reported Paul Littlejohn III for working with children.

— This is especially unfortunate for Cobb, or would be if she was a Republican, as she just announced she was standing by him, she also acknowledged it would be bad for him to knock on doors.

3. Vice President Mike Pence joins Congressman Mo Brooks and others calling for an end to Mueller’s Trump-Russia probe

— Vice President Mike Pence urged special counsel Robert Mueller to “wrap it up” and said that would be in the “in the interest of the country”.

— Pence pointed out that the administration provided more than a million documents and has fully cooperated, at this point most Americans believe the probe is politically-motivated.

4. ALDOT says they are fast-tracking the expansion of I-565 after Gov. Ivey and Mayor Battle mix it up

— After a public spat about road-funding in North Alabama over Intersate funding, the ALDOT says the publicly available documents are outdated but they couldn’t point to a date for the project.

— ALDOT spokesman Tony Harris said, “That area is seeing tremendous growth and the state recognizes the need to respond to that.”

5. White House staffer reacted with a “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” when hearing Sen. John McCain was against confirming Gina Haspel for CIA Director

— Special assistant Kelly Sadler made the comment in a meeting with other communication officials, later she called the senator’s daughter Meghan McCain to apologize

— Politics is ugly, and Sen. John McCain impending death has brought out the ugly on the Internet, but rarely do seasoned pros offer us something so offensive and wrong.

6. Alabama Democrat Rep. Terri Sewell rejoiced as candidates are now able to use campaign funds for baby-sitting expenses

— When you are constantly searching for wedge issues, you occasionally fine one, Rep. Sewell believes changing election law to allow babysitting cost.

— While it is a silly idea, by a silly person, it is a good wedge issue for PR and to bait any Republican in to “not supporting women” by pointing out how silly it is.

7. We’ve heard too much about the candidates’ health, every Gubernatorial candidate should prove they are healthy

— Sen. Bill Hightower is apparently in “excellent physical health“, Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle’s doctor says he is in “very good” health, Evangelist Scott Dawson can thank God for what his doctor calls “excellent physical health“, and now Kay Ivey has released a letter from her doctor letting us know she is in “excellent health“.

— I have proposed each candidate actually prove their physical fitness by competing 10 burpees, 10 sit-ups, 10 air squats, and  200 meter run, zero candidates took me up on it.


Hate at 8!!
