What a weekend it was! Millions on the march on Saturday were largely ignored by Sunday morning TV as the government remained in shut-down mode.

The GOP, which espouses family values and a strong military, stubbornly resisted Claire McCaskill’s efforts to continue military pay and suspend Congressional pay for the duration. Linda Sarsour, a Women’s March organizer, insisted the marches would have occurred even if Hillary Clinton had been elected.  Hillary supporters, of course, would never have turned out.

It was another weekend in the rabbit hole that is Trump’s America.

Amy Chozick’s editorial in last week’s New York Times suggested that Hillary was fading from the political scene.  Refreshingly, Gail Collins does not see things that way at all.


Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump?

Sure does seem like it. The other day, Trump was discussing Russia at a news conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.”

Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax cuts and a congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Trump veered off to remind the crowd that during the campaign, Clinton had once called his supporters “deplorables.”

“Who would have thought that was going to turn into a landslide?” asked the president, alluding to a contest in which he lost the popular vote by 2.9 million.

Hillary Clinton touts economic plan at St. Louis campaign event

ST. LOUIS • A boisterous Hillary Clinton whipped up a partisan crowd of some 500 supporters Friday night, her voice hoarse from the campaign but virtually yelling nonetheless through a speech heavy on economic themes.

“I am not running for my husband’s third term, and I am not running for President (Barack) Obama’s third term — I’m running for my first term,” Clinton said, to thunderous applause.

Playing to an especially pro-labor audience at the Sheet Metal Workers Union Hall at Jefferson and Chouteau avenues, she outlined an economic plan that would raise the minimum wage, use tax credits to attempt to lure U.S. businesses back to American soil and create a “National Infrastructure Bank” to overhaul the nation’s transportation system.

Snarky in spots and as to that Republican statement at the end, it tries credibility and the imagination that a Republican is concerned about labor and unions except to the degree that they support Dems.
