Trump Pumps Up Idea of Dumping DST’s Annoying Hour Jump

Still catching up on that hour of sleep you lost on Sunday? President Trump’s got your back.

Daylight savings time

For Americans, our Sundays were cut short by an hour yesterday.

And no, it’s not because we were forced to watch CNN for 60 minutes.  It was thanks to the idea of Daylight Savings Time, and the faux equinoxes that we’ve created as a way to rework the farmers’ work week.

But something revolutionary has been happening behind the scenes, as Americans begin to eschew the idea of Daylight Savings Time’s time changes altogether, believing more and more frequently that the notion is silly enough to be scuttled entirely.

President Donald Trump endorsed the idea of making Daylight Savings Time permanent on Monday, as many Americans complained about losing an hour of sleep over the weekend.

“Making Daylight Saving Time permanent is O.K. with me!” Trump wrote shortly on Twitter.

President Trump isn’t the only one, either.

The president would need to work with Congress in order to repeal the 1966 Johnson-era law. Republican Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott filed a bill last week to extend daylight saving time for the entire year, called the Sunshine Protection Act. The Florida legislature voted last year to adopt the measure, but in order for it to take effect, Congress must change the federal law, and Trump must sign it.

His Monday morning tweet seemed to signal that should such a proposal make it to his desk, he would do so.

Detractors against the idea include the Department of Transportation who believe that a permanent DST could cause more fatalities on the nation’s highways due to visibility issues.

Michael Avenatti’s Troubles are Far From Over Says Famous Former Client

Published

Michael Avenatti

Yesterday was a bad day for celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Actually, that’s a bit of an understatement.  Yesterday was a terrible day for Michael Avenatti. The man famously nicknamed “creepy porn lawyer” by Tucker Carlson was hit with two separate sets of charges, on each coast of this beautiful nation, stemming from illegal activities in which he attempted to “shake down” Nike. Now, Avenatti’s most famous client to date, Stormy Daniels, wants the world to know that this may very well be only the tip of the iceberg of her former lawyer’s sins. https://twitter.com/StormyDaniels/status/1110240069619572738 Avenatti had done a poor job in recent months of reversing any stereotypes that people may have concerning lawyers, that’s for certain. In a statement yesterday, Avenatti was brief and terse, spending much of his time behind the microphone thanking the authorities involved for their professionalism.

Dems and Trump Agree: Release As Much of The Mueller Report as Possible

When Trump and the democrats agree on something, but Mitch McConnell doesn’t, where do we go from here?

mueller report

It isn’t very often that you’ll find Donald Trump and  a majority of the democratic party on the same page…especially in regard to the Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory. For nearly two years the democrats, along with their lapdogs in the “infotainment” industry, had already precluded that Donald Trump was some sort of Russian double agent, handpicked by the Kremlin to rise to the highest office in the land in order to do Vladimir Putin’s bidding. Yes, it was absurd, and yes, we’re glad that Robert Mueller sorted that out for us. Now, the democrats, the American people, and Donald Trump all seem to agree:  Show us the report. The republicans, on the other hand, seem hesitant. House Democrats pressed the Justice Department to provide the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller even as Republicans gleefully called for them to “move on” from the Russia investigation . President Donald Trump accused those responsible for launching Mueller’s probe of “treasonous things against our country” and said they “certainly will be looked into.” Trump said the release of Mueller’s full report “wouldn’t bother me at all,” and Democrats quickly put that statement to the test, demanding that his administration hand over the entire document and not just Sunday’s four-page summary from Attorney General William Barr. The President has said on several occasions that releasing the entire report would be amenable to him, as he maintains his innocence in the matter. Mitch McConnell yesterday struck down an attempt to make the entire report public – a move that has raised some eyebrows among Trump supporters and other conservatives.
