Journalist: I Worked On This Story For A Year And Trump Jr. Just Tweeted It Out!

From Talking Points Memo:

An independent journalist, who said he spent a year chasing the story about Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer to get information that would help his father’s campaign, launched a tweet-storm after Trump Jr. released the email chain that lead up to the Russia meeting.

Jared Yates Sexton, who has been published in the New York Times, Politico and The New Republic, called the story the “dumbest and biggest crime in the history of American politics” and said Trump Jr. “just released the smoking gun.”

But His Emails

This has been quite the plot twist over the past few days and we’re just scratching the surface. All these leaks so far are coming from the White House. Mueller’s investigation has been leak-proof up to this point so we have no idea how much he has dug up to this point but I’m assuming we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Posting the picture below as a reminder of what a piece of shit Donny Jr. is and for the overwhelming symbolism.

Republicans increasingly say colleges have negative impact on U.S.

The GOP is the party of proud ignorance. And they control the House, Senate, White House and inching closer to the Supreme Court.

A majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (58%) now say that colleges and universities have a negative effect on the country, up from 45% last year. By contrast, most Democrats and Democratic leaners (72%) say colleges and universities have a positive effect, which is little changed from recent years.

The national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted June 8-18 among 2,504 adults, finds that partisan differences in views of the national news media, already wide, have grown even wider. Democrats’ views of the effect of the national news media have grown more positive over the past year, while Republicans remain overwhelmingly negative.

About as many Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents think the news media has a positive (44%) as negative (46%) impact on the way things are going in the country. The share of Democrats holding a positive view of the news media’s impact has increased 11 percentage points since last August (33%).

Republicans, by about eight-to-one (85% to 10%), say the news media has a negative effect. These views have changed little in the past few years.

Millennials are killing chains like Buffalo Wild Wings and Applebee’s

Chain restaurants are the worst so I think we are indebted to Millenials for this:

Casual dining is in danger — and millennials are to blame.

Brands such as TGI Fridays, Ruby Tuesday, and Applebee’s have faced sales slumps and dozens of restaurant closures, as casual-dining chains have struggled to attract customers and increase sales.

“Casual-dining restaurants face a uniquely challenging market today,” Buffalo Wild Wings CEO Sally Smith recently wrote in a letter to shareholders.

According to Smith, these sit-down restaurants’ struggles can be blamed on a frequently besmirched generation: millennials.

“Millennial consumers are more attracted than their elders to cooking at home, ordering delivery from restaurants, and eating quickly, in fast-casual or quick-serve restaurants,” Smith wrote.
