Drinking was raised because the government wanted to lower drunk driving rates, while smoking is left up to the state.

He didn't lose control, he didn't speak right away, either. He waited, according to WaPo, 13 seconds before speaking again. That isn't someone who's lost control but someone who's trying to save face.

When the Consigliere takes the hit for the Don..

In a statement on Wednesday, Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis expressed astonishment that the case had been closed without charges against others involved, “especially since prosecutors found that virtually all of Michael’s admitted crimes were done at the direction of and for the benefit of Donald Trump.”

Draining the swamp.. into your own hotel..

On 25 July, the conservative Heartland Institute is slated to host a one-day meeting at the Trump International Hotel, just a few blocks from the White House. It will feature leading climate science deniers who will discuss issues like “the benefits of ending the Democrats’ war on fossil fuels”, according to the institute.

Last month, as Donald Trump was kicking off his 2020 campaign and boasting again of “draining the swamp” of Washington’s powerful lobbyists and elites, a couple of dozen oil and gas executives with the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance were checking into the president’s hotel before a day of schmoozing with Republican House leaders and cabinet officials.

Fossil fuel interests, pro-gun industry groups, conservative bigwigs, members of Congress, Trump’s 2020 campaign, foreign delegations and all manner of Trump allies flock to his landmark Washington DC hotel to cozy up to the administration, say watchdog groups, former Republican members of Congress and policy analysts.

Influence peddling by lobbyists, Republican donors and foreign government representatives who have frequented the Trump hotel for meetings and overnight stays helped to generate about $81m in hotel revenues for Trump through 2018, according to his financial disclosure forms.

And guess what her adopted city loves her even more now. Omar was greeted by hundreds of cheering people at the airport yesterday and even presented her flowers. I have a feeling this chant of send her back will galvanize non whites to vote like never before.
