    [b]WOW – talk show hosts are going wild today on WHCD … and believe even most of liberal folks see as a new low also, except for Kathy Griffith and other “never #45’ers” … but also believe comedian wanted to make a name for herself & to become famous — as I learned there is no pre-screening & they can do what they want 🙁

    RUSH – the worst part of WHCD is not the vile & derogatory & profanity laced speech by the comedian — but CNN got the AWARD OF THE YEAR … As their reporters were given an award for the 1/10/2017 news story on the LEAKED & FAKE “Steel dossier” leaked by #44s outgoing team — which provided a genesis for the “special council” later in the year :woohoo: [/b]

    The Trump administration is delaying a decision about whether to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, Canada and Mexico until June 1, giving key allies a reprieve as the countries carry out further negotiations.

    The administration, which has granted temporary exemptions to a few countries, also has reached initial agreements with Argentina, Australia and Brazil that will allow them to avoid the tariffs for now; details of those agreements are expected to be finalized in the next 30 days.


    Yes — every day is a brand new deal 😉 :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
