But one entertainer he cannot seem to stop admiring is Elton John. He has repeatedly praised Mr. John in his books. He plays “Tiny Dancer” to warm up his rally crowds and blasted Mr. John’s music at deafening levels on his campaign plane. And when the president decided to pick an insulting nickname for Kim Jong-un, the missile-happy leader of North Korea, the title of one of Mr. John’s hits fit the bill nicely. I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man...— Donald J.

Michelle Ye Hee Lee, The Washington Post Published 3:07 pm PDT, Monday, August 20, 2018 John Dowd, a former personal lawyer for President Donald Trump, donated twice to the president's reelection campaign this year even though he already reached the $2,700 contribution limit, prompting a warning letter this month from the Federal Election Commission. Dowd's additional donations of $3,700 were included in a list of contributions to Trump's committee in the second quarter of 2018 that the FEC categorized as "excessive, prohibited and impermissible." In its letter to the Trump campaign, the FEC flagged at least 180 other cases in which individuals gave multiple donations beyond the limit. Dowd gave to the campaign in April and May, bringing his total contributions for the cycle to $6,400. When asked whether he was aware that he had exceeded the limit, Dowd responded in an email that he was "not aware."

Barbara Bush, the snowy-haired first lady whose plainspoken manner and utter lack of pretense made her more popular at times than her husband, President George H.W. Bush, died Tuesday, a family spokesman said. She was 92. Mrs. Bush brought a grandmotherly style to buttoned-down Washington, often appearing in her trademark fake pearl chokers and displaying no vanity about her white hair and wrinkles. "What you see with me is what you get. I'm not running for president — George Bush is," she said at the 1988 Republican National Convention, where her husband, then vice president, was nominated to succeed Ronald Reagan. The Bushes, who were married Jan. 6, 1945, had the longest marriage of any presidential couple in American history. And Mrs. Bush was one of only two first ladies who had a child who was elected president. The other was Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams and mother of John Quincy Adams. "I had the best job in America," she wrote in a 1994 memoir describing her time in … [Read more...] about Barbara Bush, Wife of One President and Mother of Another, Dies
Michael Bloomberg may throw himself into the 2016 presidential race. The media mogul could even put up $1 billion of his own money. Bloomberg is reportedly irked by Donald Trump’s policies and his recent domination in the polls. He wants to give Americans a better choice by possibly running as an independent. But here’s the problem with Mayor Bloomberg’s plan: It may end up backfiring on him. In fact, it would likely propel the Donald right into the White House.Why? It ultimately comes down to some legal realities about how our electoral process works.Although he claims to be a centrist, the most recent Gallup poll shows that Bloomberg’s appeal is among Democrats (52 percent favorable versus 21 unfavorable) – and just not great among Republicans (only 23 percent favorable). Conservative Republicans even laughed off his latest presidential flirtation.As you might recall from U.S. history class, the candidate who wins the popular vote … [Read more...] about If Bloomberg Runs, Electoral College System Makes Donald Trump Our President
