Delusional trump supporters just told me no Grand Jury has been impaneled

They truly live in a bubble of unreality, in addition to all their other flaws.

Poor trumpflakes.

The Trump administrations new, more intrusive TSA screening is sure to be a hit with our allies

But if the Possum Magic author feels cheesed by her "terrifying ordeal", spare a thought for Nick Warner, the Director-General of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service. You'd think being the top government spy of a staunch US ally – travelling on a diplomatic passport – would spare you the latex welcome, but no. Not even. Warner got the full treatment last month at LAX arrivals, transferring for meetings in the capital (including, you'd safely assume, at Langley, Virginia). Could you imagine the uproar in Washington if John Brennan or Meroe Park copped a solid frisking at Tullamarine? Yeah right – as if they'd even countenance the indignity of flying commercial!

Trump supporter charged with hate crime after attacking JFK airport worker in hijab

https://mic.com/articles/166861/trump-supporter-charged-with-hate-crime-after-attacking-jfk-airport-worker-in-hijab#.xAlohB18J

According to a press release from Queens County District Attorney Richard A. Brown's office, 57-year-old Robin A. Rhodes of Worcester, Massachusetts, was at JFK Wednesday awaiting a connecting flight. Between 7:10 p.m. and 9:45 p.m., Brown said, Rhodes accosted Rabeeya Kahn as she sat in her office in the Delta Air Lines Sky Club lounge.

"Are you sleeping? Are you praying? What are you doing?" Rhodes said, according to Brown's office. He then allegedly punched the door, which hit the back of Kahn's chair. Kahn asked Rhodes what she had done to him and he responded, "You did nothing but I am going to kick your ass," before kicking her in the leg. When she tried to leave the office, Rhodes allegedly kicked the door again and blocked her from leaving, according to the press release.

Someone eventually intervened, allowing Kahn to leave the office as she ran to the front desk, Brown's office said. According to the press release, Rhodes then followed her and got down on his knees and began mocking Muslim prayer and shouted, " Islam, ISIS, Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you. You can ask Germany, Belgium and France about these kind of people. You will see what happens."

Trump can't read long (3-6 page) reports, but he likes maps and pictures

The Times report also notes that paperwork, which is “the lifeblood of the bureaucracy,” has been unpredictable since Trump came into office, with officials learning of directives via secondhand news reports. And while the NSC used to suggest policy to Obama in 3-6 page reports, the staff has now been told that they must keep it at one page, and be sure to include graphics and maps.

“The president likes maps,” an official explained.
