    The report I saw about Trump’s VP offer to Kasich said that when Trump Jr. “asked whether the Ohio governor would be interested to join the ticket if he could potentially become the most powerful vice president in American history,” the Kasich aide asked what the VP would be in charge of.
    .
    The reply was, “The VP will handle domestic policy. And foreign policy.”
    .
    “Then what,” the Kasich aide asked next, “will the president be doing?”
    .
    Trump Jr. allegedly replied, “Making America great again.”
    .
    Yeesh. As if any Veep will ever be as much of a surrogate Pres as Cheney was.

    An interesting description of the evolution of the apple story is at
    .
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/the-core-of-truth-behind-sir-isaac-newtons-apple-1870915.html
    .
    Newton said (very much after the fact) that he had been ruminating about Keplerian motion for some time, and his curiosity “occasioned by the fall of an apple,” probably seen but not felt as an impact on the head, helped him with his thought experiment.
    .
    The source does say that Newton probably embellished the story as time went on, and the story got better, as stories are wont to do.

    Your reply made me look for other sources — one I found interesting is at

    .
    It shows the wider view with Trump on the large screen, and also has a couple of videos of the gesture with the author’s analysis. The author gives Ingraham the benefit of the doubt; after watching the video I can see why. But the still photo is still pretty chilling.

    “I can’t understand the comparisons between now and the 30s. There was a depression then, none now. Inflation in Germany, none now. 30% unemployment then, 5% now. Everyone’s driving new cars and talking on their iPhones and buying $5 coffee at Starbucks. The sky is falling?”
    -—————————————-

    If you listened (and believed) Trump’s acceptance speech, you’d know the sky has ALREADY fallen. Trump and only Trump can save us from the zombie apocalypse already in progress.

    “I used to live in Cleveland and I wonder…where did they find all those white people?”
    .
    It was interesting to watch the camera pans over the audience. Out of the many thousand in the arena, few got much individual camera time. Except for the 8 or 9 people of color we saw time after time after time.

    Re Laura’s salute —
    .
    Best response to Trump’s acceptance speech I saw was in a tweet. Wish I could remember who the tweeter was so I could give proper credit:
    .
    “It sounded better in the original German.”

    It wasn’t an opinion, it was sarcasm — and prettty good sarcasm, too. I’m American, and I chuckled out loud at the comment without being insulted.

    A comment worth a grin — thanks.

    I’m not sure Mom wants to embarrass Petey — she may just want to document one of the rare times he’s done things a more “normal” boy does regularly.

    Ouch. Worth a mild groan for the pun, worth a big cheer for making a non-political comment!
