The "Trump loyalty" thing is over.

Corey Lewandowski has been sacked by the Donald Trump campaign. According to Fox News, Monday, the Trump campaign manager is gone.   The action occurs months after Trump defended Lewandowski from a national controversy with reporter Michelle Fields.

Trump has decided just weeks before the Republican convention, that Lewandowski will no longer be with the campaign at all. Fox News says that It's unclear what specifically led to the decision. The departure of one of Trump's most senior and loyal advisers follows what was widely seen as a rough patch for the campaign. 

It has repeatedly been reported throughout the media, that campaign advisers have been requesting Trump to be more of a traditional campaign candidate but that he has repeatedly ignored this advice. This weekend, Trump talked about guns in bars, profiling to stop domestic terrorism and has been off track.

Ironically, Trump had previously stated that is a very loyal employer and emphasized that Lewandowski should be protected because he has a family. Those comments were made in relationship to the Fields 

"I would have loved to have fired him," Trump told CNN's Anderson Cooper during a town hall event in March. "It would have been much easier than talking to you about this all night long ... I don't want to ruin (Lewandowski's) life."

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
