Rob’s Weekly News Wrap-up, 01/11- 01/18

My week closed with a day of doctor’s appointments and chores.

I’ve started a memoir so I’m thinking about limiting myself to
posting twice a week.

Or maybe three times.

Today is the day of the 2019 Women’s March.

I hope a trumped-up right-wing non-controversy doesn’t suppress turnout.

I’ll have photos and videos by this evening.

The week was a frenzy of news, most of it bad for Trump and the GOP.

Trump is losing support from his base and the new freshman democrats in
the House have made a laughing-stock of Mitch McConnell.

The week closed with the revelation that Trump may have ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress; or maybe not.

We are in the longest most damaging government shut-down in US history and most Americans are too savvy to buy GOP attempts blame Democrats.

The President is holding us hostage and demanding a ransom of five billion dollars from the House. He is also creating a crisis to distract us from the fact that he is under investigation for conspiring to defraud the American People.

To quote Stephen Colbert:

“That looks bad, but only if we start accepting evidence as proof.”

This list is not complete, there is simply too much news this week
