Words Are Failing Me; Trump & the Republicans

The president of the United States has requested to ride in Queen Elizabeth II’s golden state carriage during his upcoming visit to Buckingham Palace — a choice that will require a “monster” security operation. Officials told the Times of London that, “The White House has made clear it regards the carriage procession down the Mall as an essential element of the itinerary for the visit currently planned for the second week of October.”
Trump's people are denying it, of course.

Meanwhile, Republicans are trying to sneak a revised GI Bill under the radar. Hearings with only laudatory witnesses will be held next week.

I don't know if this new GI Bill is any good or not. But I assume that, whenever the Congress (or any other political body) tries to sneak legislation through without people noticing, that there is some serious fuckery going on.

I'm under the Montgomery GI bill, which was almost useless. Any comparison to that low bar (as made in the linked article) is verrrry suspicious.
