This is a tweet MCNBC's account posted on Twitter. Now they are making stuff up about his handshakes!!

.@ChrislHayes reviews President Trump’s history of aggressive handshakes and the defenses world leaders, like France’s Emmanuel Macron, employ to counter them (close ups included).

Jack We are still planning on heading that way. Will they kick us off the island?

Momto2

More information about Isakson's seat:


Georgia's Republican Governor Brian Kemp will appoint a temporary replacement when Isakson steps down December 31.

Right now, Georgia has two Republican senators. But in November 2020, both of Georgia's Senate seats will now be on the ballot, setting up a rare battle in a state where Republicans are facing stiff challenges.

Isakson's Senate term would have ended in 2022. So whoever wins the special election to replace him in 2020 will only hold the seat for two years before facing reelection.

Oh, Melinda, I have more faith in my fellow Georgians than that! Just imagine if she had won the Governor's race and now she would be appointing the person to fill his seat!

Jim Eagle

Steph,

They may shut-down A1A plus the bridges at Hammock Dunes and Crescent Beach. No mandatory evacuation but the loss of power is always there plus the Dunes Community Development District water plan (potable) may shut down.

This will the first test of the new dunes reinforcement on the north side of Flagler Beach on A1A. The southside dunes works is still going on. If I was you I would check in every day to Levi's Utube channel I linked to on the other page.

Here is again. Daily morning briefings.

If there is a medical reason(losing electric to a dialysis machine for example) to leave you may want to see if it keeps on its scheduled route and go up to JAX or the panhandle.

Or, Melinda, were you saying that tongue-in-cheek as in she didn't *lose* the Governor's race? Sorry, I just re-read it and caught that you may have meant it that way!

The Justice Department inspector general is preparing to release a report on the conduct of fired FBI Director James Comey in the Trump-Russia investigation, according to a number of sources with knowledge of the situation. The specific timing of the report's release is not clear.

Horowitz earlier referred the Comey memo matter to the Justice Department for possible prosecution, but Justice officials declined to go forward.

Thanks for posting that great tweet with Katie Hopkins' video!

I follow her, but we are trying to get laundry and cleaning done, so I missed it. Thanks again!

Glad to hear the news about the Georgia appointment and that now both seats will be up in 2020.
How about Newt for one of them?

Jim Eagle

You can tell that Katie is enthusiastic for Brexit:) Trouble is that in Great Britian she is considered a bit of a pariah and loose cannon. I think the Daily Mail is out a small fortune for her comments on Muzzies.

I see the Remainers have got "Stop the Coup" demonstrations going on in major cities around the UK. Photographed to make them seem larger, of course.

I cannot forget how almost every cashier, tour guide, and hotel clerk made sarcastic comments about the EU when I was over there for the Queen's Jubilee back in 2012. Perhaps they think they have scared the average Brit now with all of this disaster talk about Brexit, but it seems to me that most people wouldn't change their minds.

We will see.

Attention O'Donnell and MSNBC/NBC: Perhaps you forgot HE FIGHTS BACK.

Jane

"Steyer & Gabbard fail to qualify for debate... poll numbers too low."

I like watching Gabbard bring Harris to her knees. Steyer paid off people to donate to him, (as did Gillibrand)and neither could make it. I think Steyer is one of the worst democrats on earth.

It is becoming clearer and clearer that all the opposition on Trump from both parties is that he is proving how ineffective every elected person in DC has been in my lifetime. Clearly they are all worried about their bankrolls.

Jack, just starting out on my own in 1978, the bank considered me a higher risk than others (imagine that). They loaned me millions at Prime+5% which I was happy - delighted - to have, even when Prime topped at 20% in 1980. Thankfully, like the Mafia, they also loaned me the money to pay them their interest. And yes, of course my wife and I had to both pledge all of our assets as additional security. Married only a couple of years, she kept asking "what am I signing?".

And some wonder why I get thin skinned when others questions what small business people and real estate developers deal with as they pursue their dreams...and then get dissed when/if they work and risk pays off decades later.

Jack, my neighbor here on Nantucket sold his big-ass house in NJ last month because taxes and bought a new place a few miles from you. Just sent him a note chuckling that here I am collecting his mail and watching over his house on this calm part of the ocean (stealing his gin and sending my kids and grandkids next door to use his hot tub), while he unpacks in FL and signs a contract with something called "storm prep contractors" and getting something he calls "storm shutters" serviced.

What made 1979 even crazier was that we couldn't find people to help us build a Nuke at Calvert Cliffs. We got a lot of Cape Canerval layoffs who were basically worthless but because of that, they gave them 15% raises as I was getting ready to fire them.

Today we have a negative construction worker skill deficit. If you want to make over 100K a year learn to weld, connect hot boxed layed down strucural steel. The big 50 Construction companies are having a hard time finding skilled crafts.
