Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly blasted the now ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, Capt. Brett Crozier, as "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew Monday morning, in remarks obtained by CNN.

Treasury Department officials are preparing to ask Congress to swiftly commit another $200 billion to add to the new, $350 billion small business coronavirus program already overwhelmed by surging demand and early chaos.

From Friday: $350 billion won’t save America’s small businesses

Someone doesn't like independent oversight.

RIP, John Prine. “Looks like I had my fill Guess I better pay my bill When I started out I only meant to have a few Someone just said that you left town I better get a double round.”

“Anyone who knows you knows the heart you have for America’s small businesses,” Ivanka notes of her father. Yes, even as she speaks you can see all of the empathy and emotion for people who are struggling pouring out of him.


“Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate...So the only way he figures he’s going to get reelected, and as sure as you’re sitting there, is to start a war with Iran.”

She doesn’t mention her ratings.

Yikes! According to reality, your father bankrupted six companies, cost tens of thousands of people their jobs, gutted Atlantic City, turned his back on New York, looted his own charity with your help, and has spent decades lying about how much money he has. 🤡

Trump took $17 million in insurance for hurricane damage to Mar-a-Lago in 2005 that few remember. The looked into it in 2016 and found little evidence of damage. Trump couldn't say how much he spent on repairs; acknowledged pocketing some of the money

Suddenly remembering that string of pledges by your father to Penn/Wharton in the 1990s — totaling at least $1.5 million — that coincided with the 1996 and 2000 enrollment there of you and Ivanka respectively:

Ivanka made $3.9 million from the family's DC hotel in 2017 -- the hotel that is supposed to remit profits to the Treasury, hosts foreign diplomats, and which is the target of lawsuits alleging POTUS is violating emoluments provisions of the Constitution
