South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham enthusiastically praised President* Donald Trump on Wednesday for his foreign policy, a continued departure from his sharp criticism of Trump during the 2016 race and even after the election. ... “I am all in. Keep it up, Donald,” Graham added. “I'm sure you're watching."If I know anything about Trump, this will fall into "too little, too late" as far as he's concerned. He values friends and loyalty and has less regard for those who have been conquered.
I don't know what to make of this, other than to wonder if the payoff was in the seven or eight figure range:
Bill O’Reilly, the star of Fox News’ primetime line up, is leaving the network after more than two decades.I doubt if his core audience gave a fuck. But advertisers don't like their products being linked to sexual abusers, especially considering who has the purchasing power.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” 21st Century Fox said in a statement.
Fox News is clearly trying to shed its reputation of being friendly to sexual harassment. Good luck with that.
Meanwhile, in Massachusetts:
Embattled former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell early Wednesday, authorities confirm.Because he had an unadjudicated appeal from his first conviction, that conviction will probably be vacated and he will officially be a non-convicted murderer.
According to a spokesperson with the Massachusetts Department of Correction, Hernandez hanged himself with a bed sheet attached to a window at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.
The same thing happened, you may recall, when one of the Enron crooks croaked while his appeal was in progress.
