Six more days

Six more days until

-this “American carnage” ends

-“I am always thinking” can contemplate golf, or prison, or his taxes, or his favorite daughter

-“Everyone’s leaving” the most corrupt administration in America history

-A president will take the pandemic seriously and not merely tell people to wear a mask “if it makes you feel comfortable”

-A “hunch” will not override science

-No one has to contemplate what the hell “a ship ventilation system is very much — they circularize. And they are very much under review, to be honest with you” means.

-The three-times married, twice-impeached, one-term blowhard exits the political stage

And one can hope that even with a Senate trial likely to end in acquittal that Americans learn how eager this tyrant was to lead a coup so he could remain in power.

University president dissed Ivanka Trump in June; the bill came due today

Wichita State University is looking for a new president. Jay Golden has resigned after being in that role for less than a year. And, as the Sunflower reports, his departure now might be linked to a decision he made regarding Ivanka Trump.

In early June, donors threatened to pull funding from the university if the Board of Regents didn’t oust Golden after he changed Ivanka Trump’s graduation speech from keynote to optional. Students held a rally in support of Golden  and after a four-hour meeting, KBOR took no public action and Golden remained president.

Regent Jon Rolph told KMUW that Golden’s resignation is not related to the Ivanka Trump controversy. 

“If the board was going to take action on that, it would have been in June,” Rolph told KMUW. 

That’s one interpretation. Another is to say the regents didn’t want to appear vindictive at the time of Golden’s decision, so they waited for the controversy to die down. In addition, if Golden were shown the door this summer, the institution would have had instability at the top as it considered how to deliver classes in the fall term.

Unless the regents learned of something in Golden’s past that required them to act now, there’s every reason to believe Golden’s parachute was prepared in June.

The first move for the “Ivanka ’24” campaign?

Politico sent the following breaking news alert at 2:33 p.m. EST:

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump helped lead the charge to scuttle a draft executive order that would have overturned Obama-era enforcements of LGBT rights in the workplace, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation told POLITICO.

A draft executive order on LGBT rights – which outlines how to roll back former president Barack Obama’s protections and expand legal exemptions based on religious beliefs – has been circulating among journalists and worried progressive groups this week.

But two sources close to Kushner and Ivanka Trump, who have in the past been supporters of gay rights, said the young couple were both in favor of putting out a clear statement from the president, promising to uphold the 2014 Obama executive order and stopping the momentum for the turnaround in its tracks.

Hmmm…the first brick for Ivanka Trump’s presidential foundation?
