Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 15, 2018

When White House economic adviser Gary Cohn showed up in the Oval Office earlier this year to give Donald Trump news of an excellent jobs report, the president's keen grasp of economics and policy instantly came into play. "It's all because of my tariffs," he replied, according to Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear." Cohn had to inform him that the tariffs were not yet in effect. Now they are, and the news is not so sunny.

Pres Trump's reality-distortion field is worse than I had thought.

Nothing else need be said to understand what is happening under Trump. At least we talk maniacally daily about him, which he enjoys.

Combination of the two.

I'm a Genesis fan, mostly circa early 1970's.

The words looked familiar, but I couldn't place them. The early 1970's are a bit foggy for me. :)

So I asked duckduckgo help.

Excellent.

They were pretty much done (art-wise) two records after Gabriel left.

When you have brain cancer, it's on your mind. So please excuse us.
