Today is 9/17 and these are the stories I am watching.
1-Trump demands resignations over Kavanaugh story
President Trump issued a full-throated call for resignations and changes in management at the New York Times during a fiery rally in Democratic-leaning New Mexico on Monday night, after the paper published a bombshell allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — before later acknowledging, under pressure, that the alleged victim said she had no recollection of the event, refused to be interviewed and has made no other comment.
The New York Times reporters behind the controversial piece on Justice Kavanaugh claimed in an interview Monday night that key details missing from the sexual misconduct allegation may have been removed from the original draft in the editing process. The piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly was adapted from their forthcoming book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” Both insisted in an interview that key information at the center the uproar over their story was included in their original draft of the piece.
DML: And then they tried to sell us on Santa being real.
3-Netanyahu looks to remain in power
Israelis are voting in an unprecedented repeat election that will decide whether longtime Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stays in power. Against the prospect of a likely indictment on corruption charges, Netanyahu is seeking a fifth term. He faces a stiff challenge from retired military chief Benny Gantz, whose centrist Blue and White party is running even with Netanyahu’s Likud.
DML: Israel, much like the US, appears to have its head up its buttock. Bibi has been great! Should win in a landslide, but instead it’s a battle.
4-US shares info with Saudi Arabia that blames Iran for oil field attack
Iran was the staging ground for the weekend attacks on the massive Saudi Arabia oil field, according to U.S. intelligence that was shared with the kingdom, a report said. The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported that the intelligence report—that was not shared publically—indicated that Iran raided the massive oil field with at least a dozen missiles and 20 drones.
DML: The WSJ claims a Saudi official said that the U.S. intelligence was not “definitive.” Meaning, the U.S. did not provide enough evidence to prove without a doubt that Tehran’s hand was involved. I say we stay out of it.
5-Spicer wear neon shirt on ‘Dances With the Stars’
Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made his colorful and proudly outlandish “Dancing With the Stars” debut on Monday night wearing a neon-green ruffled shirt as he shimmied to the Spice Girls song “Spice up Your Life” in a salsa routine. Spicer’s routine bombed, as he was given a total score of 12 out of 30.
DML: I want to be creative here and find a way in which DML PURE CBD will help Spicer improve his score after a long night of making himself look silly on TV. But I can’t. It’s not that the DML PURE CBD wouldn’t work wonders for Sean, it’s that I am so overwhelmed by the negative optics of Trump’s number one dude falling so hard from grace that he has to appear on Dancing With The Stars.
