Time magazine ran a front-page photo of a saint-like Jared Kushner the week of June 1, 2017, identifying him as “The Good Son.” When it published a cover with Donald Trump Jr., the identifier was “Caught Red Handed,” with a dark, moody, picture that resembled a mobster’s mug shot. The disparate treatment was extreme, though Kushner, so far, is unlikely to bring the Administration down.
What happened to Angele Davis and US President Donald Trump?
I did not hear a single comment or word naming the President in the recent black-targeted “Angele for Treasurer” promotion. The election for Statewide position of state treasurer is tomorrow.
Today, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu rebuked the Donald Trump administraton over the issue of whether the city is in full compliance with the federal immigration law. Landrieu stated that his claim of full compliance has been confirmed by the Trump administration and that New Orleans would not follow the mandates of the administration regarding sanctuary cities.
Senator Bob Corker, meet Neil Cavuto. You’re in the same company, both conservatives and obviously concerned whether the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, is fit for office or of sound mind.
Some say one man’s madness is another man’s strategy. Vanity Fair is calling it “Moron-gate,” except the dotard in the cupboard isn’t Donald Trump, it’s Rex Tillerson who takes the dunce cap for his flip, petty, slap at the President, by calling Trump a “moron,” for one thing, or another. If “Moron-in-Chief” becomes as quintessentially defining of President Trump as “Crooked Hillary” is of his nemesis, it’s on Tillerson.
The most famous two time presidential loser in U.S. history, Hillary Clinton, refuses to quietly go away. She remains bitter about losing to political novice Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
It was “a lovely visit, a first, too,” the President said. No doubt, Donald Trump was the first U.S. President to throw rolls of paper towels into a tepid crowd of puzzled people the way a low-rent concert promoter tosses out second act t-shirts. What made it even stranger was that Trump hefted them to victims of drenching hurricanes. Golf towels would’ve been a better choice, especially since Houston got very nice, hot-boxed lunches. Whoever stage-managed this inept trip needs to quit because they ruined another chance for Trump to look good again.
For the first ten years of his tenure as Head Coach of the New Orleans Saints, Sean Payton was focused on football. He did not give his political opinions and rarely granted interviews. In fact, he seemed to despise the media and consider all of the reporters to be fools. Unfortunately, in the past year, Payton has been the one who has looked foolish. This is not due to his unimpressive results as Head Coach, leading his team to three straight losing seasons and a 2-2 record in 2017. Instead, it is due to his decision to enter the world of politics.
Remember that Liz Minelli powerful song in Cabaret when she sang, with the lights glowing behind her on stage, "Maybe This Time".
That emotional appeal suggesting that the world can suddenly come to a spinning change, whether it be luck, fortune or simply new facts.

A Tale of Two Parishes
The national controversy over whether athletes should stand for the National Anthem has hit home in Bossier and Caddo parishes. And there are stark differences in how it is being handled in each parish.
Bossier took the lead. In a statement, the Bossier Parish School System said any student who does not stand during the National Anthem while participating in extracurricular activities will face consequences.
