A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day for Dems. Secretary Hillary Clinton started off the week on bad footing thanks to the foundation and the emails. She turned it around yesterday.   Commentary watched Hillary’s fact based talk on Trump and the Alt-Right/white nationalists. Even the Trump supporting talking heads couldn’t dispute the facts. The Fox News anchors just seemed to accept the fact that Trump is in bed with the Alt-Right. CNN’s Dan Bash said last night that Trump had to call Hillary a bigot because she nailed him on the Alt-Right issue. That is who Trump is comfy with.

Trump also didn’t help himself by being all over the map on immigration the past couple of days.

This is what Jeb Bush said yesterday about Trump and immigration:

“Sounds like a typical politician, by the way, where you get in front of one crowd and say one thing, and then say something else to another crowd that may want to hear a different view. All the things that Donald Trump railed against, he seems to be morphing into. It’s kind of disturbing.”

According to the fella in charge of the Trib, former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Tony Garza, a GOPer appointed by W, will not be voting for Donald Trump.

How many prominent Dems are running away from Hillary?

Meanwhile, Trump had outreach meetings with African-American and Latinos yesterday in his Trump Tower boardroom. Got it? Getting to know you, getting to know all about you.

Which MLB division leader has the biggest lead today?

My sister’s family started a tortilla making company few years ago.  They are almond based.  You can get them at Whole Foods.  They are called Siete. They are a bit pricey.

I guess ESPN still thinks we will be a contender on the second Sunday of September. They have us playing the Cubbies on their Sunday evening game over at The Yard. It will also be the 15th Anniversary of 9/11.

The Cubbies of course have a 14 game lead in the AL Central.

We are 4 games down in the Wild Card race and we have to gain ground during the 6 game homie.
