An aide noticed, and gave Trump another MAGA hat for him to sign and give to the kid. Trump throws that into the crowd, after signing it. Many WTF reactions to this incident were making the rounds, including folks wondering if Trump is just that asleep at the wheel, or if he's just an ***hole.

    Well, FreeBeacon is claiming the video isn't real, and their "proof" is splicing it to cut out the parts where he throws the kid's hat, and hoping nobody sees the original cut.

    I just saw someone on my social media feed try to defend Trump from the poor media attacks, commenting with the FreeBeacon story in response to someone else posting the full video and asking what Trump's damage is. Some of the miscreants who enable Trump will literally defend him being an ***hole to children, even when there's video evidence, and six decades of stories about what an ***hole he is. It's... really pathetic, frankly.
    Oh the outrage. You happily just soaked up fake news. Trump didn't toss the hat to a random person in crowd. He tossed it back to the kid who even said "thank you".

    It's hilarious you consider some random guy(who is obviously biased)as a relevant and reliable news source.

    I feel like this is just a non story, and both sides trying to make it a story just seem dumb

    Reading the Congressional Times and their report it sounds like he's about to get booted off every committee he's on.

    Siding with Trump seems to get you fast tracked for retirement.

    WSJ seems to think so. Fox is measuring his desk. USA Today and WaPo seem to think so too. Fox has said as much, too, on their business channel.

    Drudge thinks so too. Except he's calling it a "planned retirement" wink wink wink.

    Should be interesting to see of O'Reilly does interviews or just goes into seclusion.

    Maybe he'll buy a house next door to Richard Simmons.

    But, without Chaffetz around, who will continue the GOP's crusade to have Hillary prosecuted and thrown in prison because of BENGHAZI!!!?

    The writing was on the wall for O'Reilly after that incredible exodus of advertisers who dropped his show like a live grenade. Perhaps Faux News was concerned that said exodus could affect the entire network, so they sacrificed Bilious Bill. At the end of the day, as with everything in life, it's all about the Benjamins.

    We just got a huge sign that the US intelligence community believes the Trump dossier is legitimate

    The FBI reportedly used the explosive, unverified dossier detailing President Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russia to bolster its case for a warrant that would allow it to surveil Carter Page, an early foreign-policy adviser to Trump's campaign.

    It's a key signal that the FBI had enough confidence in the validity of the document to work to corroborate it and present it in court.

    Highly intriguing. Sadly, I fear nothing of substance will come from this revelation. As long as Republicans control Congress and continue seeing, hearing and speaking no evil when it comes to Trump, they won't lift so much as a pinky finger against him, probable treason be damned. For the umpteenth time, it's party before country, party before democracy, party before every goddamn thing. Bottom line: Trump is more bulletproof than Luke Cage while the GOP is in his corner.

    As Jason Chaffetz whispered "Benghazi" for the last time, a single tear trickled down his cheek. He fell on the Sword of Benghazi. He was dead. Behind him, a new man ripped the still warm weapon from his chest, dripping with the crimson blood of Chaffetz. He held it above his head and shouted full of bravado, "Unless your name is Jack Bauer, you cannot make people talk!" *

    The new regime at Fox aims to be more "mainstream." And to stop hiring perverts.

    There was also this that happened:
    Two plaintiffs join suit against Trump, alleging breach of emoluments clause

    Also:
    Ivanka's biz prospers as politics mixes with business

    RussiaGate, Emoluments Violations, ChinaGate, Korean Carrier Crisis, and Mar-A-Largo.

    I'm done with the Gates. This crap is happening in Mar-A-Largo.

    It is now Russia-Largo, China-Largo, Korean-Largo ...

    You were talking about the ideology switch between Democrats and Republicans. That was mostly about racist Southern Democrats switching to the GOP over covil rights. And that shoe doesn't seem to fit Heston in the 60s.
