Trump Kicks Crying Baby Out of his Rally in Virginia

Usually politicians kiss babies. Trump just kicks them out of his rallies.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has a history of barring people from his campaign events. He’s banned reporters from the Washington Post and anti-Trump protesters are routinely escorted out.

And now a baby joins their ranks outside the perimeters.

At a rally Tuesday in Northern Virginia, Trump asked that a woman with a crying baby to “get that baby out of here.”

Trump Hopes that Economy Tanks

It’s really difficult to keep up with every stupid little thing he says:

“The numbers are getting worse and worse all the time. If they get real bad, I hope it happens fast, so I don’t have to — they’ll all blame me. You’ll end up winning and your first day, the economy crashes because of some incompetent people before me,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says at Ashburn, Va., rally.

Medical Benefits of Dental Floss Unproven

From the AP:

HOLMDEL, N.J. (AP) — It’s one of the most universal recommendations in all of public health: Floss daily to prevent gum disease and cavities.

Except there’s little proof that flossing works.

Still, the federal government, dental organizations and manufacturers of floss have pushed the practice for decades. Dentists provide samples to their patients; the American Dental Association insists on its website that, “Flossing is an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums.”

The federal government has recommended flossing since 1979, first in a surgeon general’s report and later in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans issued every five years. The guidelines must be based on scientific evidence, under the law.

The AP looked at the most rigorous research conducted over the past decade, focusing on 25 studies that generally compared the use of a toothbrush with the combination of toothbrushes and floss. The findings? The evidence for flossing is “weak, very unreliable,” of “very low” quality, and carries “a moderate to large potential for bias.”
