For African Americans and Hispanics, the unemployment rate is now the lowest ever recorded. In April, 164,000 nonfarm jobs were added to payrolls surpassing a 135,000 increase in employment in March. Among the sectors to perform well in April were construction which added 17,000 new jobs and manufacturing employment which surged by 24,000 jobs.

President Donald Trump did not attend the White House Correspondence Dinner again this year. This is a one hundred years old tradition where members of the Press and the President gather together for a “good natured” roast of one another.           

trump michelleIsn’t it amazing that the Trump Alternative Facts crew is so up in arms over Michelle Wolf’s comedic shtick.

It’s not like she called Donald Trump, a “Fake President” or “The enemy of the American people” or “Lyin Donald”.

No.  Those wouldn't have gotten any laughs.

Perhaps.

According to two Louisiana politicos, political writer Christopher Tidmore and pollster and analyst John Couvillon of JMC Polling and Analytics, right now, it's doom and gloom time at the not-so-ok GOP corral. 

Yet, we know that mid-term elections are six months away. Based upon the 2016 elections, one can never say "never" in the age of Trump. Still, as the present is precursor to the future, judging by Couvillon's and Tidmore's view of the national political landscape, there could be plenty of cursing and blaming among the ranks of Republicans, this November coming.

This morning, in a tweet, slamming James Comey, Trump said:

Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!

She originally made the claim of a man making a veiled threat demanding that she drop the Donald Trump thing after she made efforts to tell her story about her alleged relationship with Trump in 2006.

Daniels showed the sketch on The View. Here is the transcript of the discussion:

daniels manWhether you believe it or not that Stormy Daniels, the porn star, was threatened by some unknown man in a Las Vegas parking lot, here is the picture of the man who allegedly engaged in the threat.

 truth battleThe bell has rung. The battle match for the truth has begun.

So we can all agree that James Comey made major mistakes during the 2016 elections. And, I think most of us can agree, that Comey  continues to do so as he swings at President Trump recounting it all through his book and TV appearances.

Cutting to the chase, with all of the punching, bobbing, weaving and President Donald Trump's famous counter-punches, is anyone landing any real blows. Or, are we watching too much swinging below the belt?
