Reasonable suspicion in the news


News Headline: “Is Trump ‘trying to provoke a domestic terror attack’ with his London tweets?”
Heavens to Betsy, what a dreadful thing to think.
News Headline: “Waiting for that Reichstag Fire moment.”
Heavens to Betsy. . . .

QT loud guy at the end of the bar update


News Headline:
Tesla’s Elon Musk and Disney’s Robert Iger quit Trump advisory councils, citing climate change.”
News Headline: “These CEOs remain on Trump’s advisory councils if you wish to  boycott their companies.”
But why should anyone want to boycott Wal-Mart, JPMorgan Chase, General Motors, General Electric and IBM, among others?
And don’t forget Pepsi?

Science and other hoaxes in the news


News Headline: “China solar-powered drone changes the way nations spy.”
Not to worry.
President Trump has plans for a coal-powered drone.

In other news. . . .


News Headline: “Boy hit by car released from hospital.”
And why a car was in the hospital, we may never know.

Today’s chuckle


News Headline:
“Trump thinks exiting the Paris agreement will keep the world from laughing at us.”
News Headline: “China activates world’s largest floating solar plant.”
News Headline: “India adds record wind-power capacity.”
President Trump is right.
The world is too busy leaving us behind to laugh at us.

A Toronto street was closed for a time when glass fell from the Trump Tower. Can you make anything of that?”
This is a tough one.
But QT will give it a try.
Now let’s see.
Donald Trump. . . crumbling facade. . . Donald Trump. . . crumbling facade. . . .

Breaking news. . . .


Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, on efforts at the recent summit to discuss the Paris climate accord with President Trump:
“We tried to explain this in clear, simple sentences to Mr, Trump in Taormina. But it would appear that he didn’t understand.”
Now the world knows:
Simple sentences aren’t enough.
Need pictures.

Making America gepofli again


News Headline: “Trump tweet goes viral as social media rush to define ‘covfefe.’ ”
We can settle this now.
It is not well known that “covfefe” is Slovenian for “tax return.”
Which brings back the question:
What is Donald Trump hiding in his covfefe?
