Straight off the Runway


Wednesday February 15, 2017

Our daily political soap opera is really stepping up. Is it because it's February and rating sweeps month? Who knew what and when? Who's playing who? Why is Trump so cozy with Putin ... business, politics, blackmail? You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to know that everything is unraveling and will cost Trump his presidency. Did I hear a round of applause? You have to admit that most of Trump's advisors look like criminals - and probably are. Are you keeping up with the scorecard of events? How many Trump family members will be attacked in the news this week? Ivanka and Melania Trump have lost markets at at several major retailers highlighted by Norstrom. Here at fashion week in New York City Tiffany Trump appeared not to have the warmest welcome, though the empty seats next to her were later filled by her friends. I like the Trump women even his ex's.

Political Synopsis:

Members of President Trump's 2016 campaign had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials before the election, four current and former American officials told The NY Times. The findings came from calls intercepted by American law enforcement and intelligence agencies during investigations last year into whether Russia was trying to hack the Democratic National Committee in an effort to disrupt the election. The U.S. officials said there was no evidence that Trump's associates had colluded with the Russians to influence voting. The White House declined to comment on Tuesday night. The intercepted calls are separate from the case of Michael Flynn, who quit this week after it was revealed that he had misled administration officials about whether he had discussed sanctions with a Russian diplomat. Trump knew about concerns that Mike Flynn had lied for more than two weeks before demanding that he quit, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said on Tuesday. The administration's first month has rattled the political establishment and led to calls for congressional inquiries.
