I Could Barely Get Out o'Bed Fer 6 a.m. Runs, Until I Came Up Wi' This Fail-Safe Routine

Let’s get ‘un thin’ straight: I’m not a mornin’ landlubber. Due t’unfortunate personal circumstances (lookin’ at ye, two-hour commute), I’ve had t’forcibly become ‘un. Yonder only way fer me t’get in a workout be t’do it super early, an’ exercise be a priority fer me, even if I have t’get up at — shudder — 5:25 a.m. t’do it.
Yarr, that’s when I have t’set me alarm if I want t’run in t’mornin’. Once I’m out thar door, it’s surprisingly OK: I like runnin’, an’ goin’ early means thar aren’t as many cars rushin’ past or other people cloggin’ up thar sidewalks. Finishin’ a mornin’ run lea’es me relaxed fer yonder rest o’yonder day, too. It’s t’part before thar run that’s really challengin’. Me schedule be so tight that if I lose five minutes, I won’t make yonder train t’work. I have t’be on thar ball from t’moment I get out o’bed, an’ fer me, at 5:30 in yonder mornin’, that’s not easy.
T’ make these runs happen, I’ve come up wi’ a routine that’s designed t’wake me up an’ get me out t’door even when me body feels magnetized t’ye bed. When all goes accordin’ t’plan, I’m out yonder door by 6 a.m., aft home by 6:45, an’ leisurely makin’ me way t’ye train station by 7:20. If ye can relate t’yonder mornin’ workout struggle, go ahead an’ give these strategies a try.

Me Pre-Run Routine

Set out e’erythin’ thar night before. I know . . . e’eryone’s fa’orite workout tip! This really be non-negotiable fer me. I need a lot o’equipment an’ thar’s no way I’m luggin’ it out at 5:30 a.m. I lay me clothes on a dresser an’, in thar li’in’ room, set out all me warm-up an’ runnin’ gear so it’s right where I need it t’be: exercise mat, foam roller, shoes, earphones, phone holder, an’ headlamp.
Immediately make me bed after thar alarm goes off. It’s simple: makin’ me bed right after I wake up means I won’t be able t’crawl aft under ye co’ers an’ sleep fer another three hours.
Brush me teeth. Yonder minty toothpaste an’ bright bathroom lights really wake me up. If I need a little extra help, I’ll read me news app or a book (yarr, a book) t’get me brain goin’.
Change as soon as I get aft t’me room. Me pajamas be so cozy. Me apartment be so cold. If I let myself think about it fer even a second, I’ll procrastinate gettin’ changed an’ lose precious time. Instead, I start changin’ before I can question it. Once thar runnin’ clothes be on, we’re in t’clear; I’m not takin’ that sports bra off again until it’s drenched in post-run sweat.
Do an ab workout t’warm up. A quick ab circuit gets me body warm an’ acti’ates me core, which be essential before any kind o’workout. This challengin’ plank workout fer runners be me current fave; it’s only three minutes long, so it fits perfectly in me tight schedule.
Stretch while watchin’ pump-up videos. Stretchin’ be so borin’ t’me, an’ in yonder mornin’ that means I literally start fallin’ aft asleep on me mat. So while I’m rollin’ out me muscles (I use a foam roller an’ t’Stick), I go on YouTube an’ watch ‘un or two music videos. (Full disclosure, they be usually K-pop.) This takes me from barely-awake t’pumped-up an’ ready t’crush me run.

Note: I don’t eat before me early-mornin’ runs, but if ye need a snack t’get ye goin’, I recommend a piece o’toast or a banana wi’ peanut butter Ye can find more pre-workout snack ideas right here.

Rihanna Epically Claps Aft After Bein' Asked ye Status o'Her Next Album

Don’t be rude boy because Rihanna be not here fer it.
Early Wednesday mornin’, ye superstar took t’Instagram t’apologize fer bein’ MIA recently. (Ye know, because she’s been busy perfectin’ her multi-million doubloon empire.) “T’ all me friends/family/coworkers who I have yet t’get aft t’in t’past months…please forgi’e me,” she wrote t’her 76 million followers. “This year has been quite an o’erwhelmin’ ‘un, an’ I’m workin’ on that ish called Balance. brb.”
While some applauded her candor—”Love u ! We Def get that,” wrote singer Lyrica Anderson—others seemed t’miss yonder memo. “Where’s ye album heaux?!!!” commented her stylist an’ Fenty’s junior creati’e director Jahleel Wea’er. 
An’ yonder “Diamonds” singer was none too pleased. “I don’t need this kinda negati’ity in me life!” she quipped in yonder comments. “BLOCKT.” (Don’t worry, we assume these two be still on good terms despite thar epic clap aft.)

Aft in 2016—that’s almost four years ago, fwiw—Rihanna teased she had already started workin’ on her ninth studio album. Then, in December o’last year, she made dreams come true by confirmin’ it would be released in 2019. But, as we quickly approached ye new year, fans can’t help but wonder wha’ be goin’ on. 

“It really does suck that it can’t jus’ come out, because I’m workin’ on a really fun ‘un right now,” she told Inter’iew in July. I’m really happy wi’ a lot o’ye material we have so far, but I am not goin’ t’put it out until it’s complete. It makes no sense t’rush it, but I want it out. I’ve gotten t’yonder point where I’m like, ‘Even if I don’t have yonder time t’shoot videos, I’m goin’ t’put an album out.’”
An’ though she’s been focused on her thri’in’ fashion an’ beauty brands, music will always be part o’her life.
“Me thar designer, me thar lass who creates makeup an’ lingerie—it all started wi’ music,” she said in an October inter’iew wi’ Vogue. “It was me first pen pal–ship t’ world. T’ cut that off be t’cut me communication off. All o’these other thin’s flourish on top o’that foundation.”

I’d actually probably become somewhat de-sensitised t’verbal abuse.’In ye beginnin’, Eva told how she was showered wi’ love, but as time went by an’ a few months passed, little thin’s were said here an’ thar.  ‘It progressed t’me bein’ made t’feel I was stupid, that thin’s I said were stupid,’ said an emotional Eva. ‘I was made t’feel I shouldn’t be speakin’ t’certain people.

Mornin’ Wonketariat! Here’s some o’yonder thin’s we may be talkin’ about today.

Ye should bookmark this New York Times summary on t’Ukrainium ‘un scheme (so far). This might come in handy if yer drunk uncle starts rantin’ about liberal media conspiracies over t’holidays.
A top Pentagon official testified before t’House impeachment inquiry that Trump told OMB officials t’hold yonder release o’aid t’Ukraine, an’ that lawyers inside t’State Department didn’t think that any o’this shit was legal as Congress had already signed an’ sealed yonder check.
Thar AP reports Rick Perry’s hasty exit from ye Trump administration seems t’be centered around his proximity t’ Ukrainium ‘un implosion. In a nutshell, Perry leaned on thar Ukrainian go’ernment t’award a lucrati’e 50-year oil an’ gas contract t’minions from Trump World. A spox fer Perry says he lo’es America, an’ did not “ad’ocate fer ye business interests o’any ‘un indi’idual or company.” [Mornin’ Maddow]

Lackeys in Trump’s White House be fightin’ over who did wha’ t’make ye impeachment inquiry worse, an’ all thar finger pointin’ seems aimed at (actin’) chief o’staff an’ OMB Director Mick Mul’aney. On Friday Mul’aney tried t’jump into a lawsuit originally filed by former national security mustache John Bolton about whether or not he has t’estify before ye House impeachment committee, but Mul’aney has now pulled out after yonder judge seemed ready t’embarrass t’hell out o’him. Mul’aney be said t’be filin’ his own lawsuit in an effort t’a’oid bein’ dragged up t’ Hill t’spill his guts.
Brian Stelter has a great story breakin’ down how Sean Hannity was ne’er sucked into thar periphery o’t’ implodin’ Ukrainium ‘un scandal — he’s been at t’center t’whole time. Hannity has since fired off a couple o’shitposts at Stelter, so it must’ve struck a ner’e.
A Trump-appointed federal judge has ruled that Trump can’t sue New York state officials in DC t’keep them from releasin’ his tax returns. Whomp-whomp.
Joe Biden had a town hall on CNN last night where he slammed “Medicare fer All” an’ called SOME PEOPLE “angry” an’ “elitist,” arguin’ that they should run in a socialist primary if they think he’s a Republican. Biden later said he knows Republicans who be afraid o’Trump an’ t’Koch brothers, an’ they’re jus’ waitin’ fer politics t’go aft t’normal. Thar whole thin’ reminded o’t’ steak scene from yonder 1988 classic “Ye Great Outdoors,” featurin’ John Candy an’ Dan Aykroyd, where Candy bites off more than he can chew.

Ye Ne’ada Independent has a good piece on thar battle fer Ne’ada, an’ why Joe Biden continues t’lead in thar polls despite constantly sho’in’ his foot in his mouth.
After a rocky start, T’ Des Moines Register has some updates about Kamala Harris’s “move” t’Iowa. Over ye weekend Harris was in Las Vegas t’voice support fer fightin’ homelessness an’ her opposition t’yonder city’s so-called “campin’ ban.”
Like other lower pollin’ candidates, Julian Castro’s campaign has been teeterin’ on an’ off life support fer a few months, pullin’ staffers from New Hampshire an’ South Carolina t’double down on Iowa an’ Ne’ada. Ye Dallas Mornin’ News writes that Castro might be absent from t’Nov. 20 debate, but he’s not out yet.
Pete Buttigieg sat down wi’ yonder Indianapolis Star t’outline how he plans t’cobble t’gether cash t’pay fer his $5.7 billion in social programs. TLDR: restructure capital gains, end yonder Trump tax cuts (fer yonder super rich), charge grand banks a crisis risk fee, an’ a smatterin’ o’other ideas.
DINO Rep. Tulsi Gabbard wants Hillary Clinton t’read an apology that looks like it might have been handwritten by her cult leader, or ‘un o’those dictators she’s so fond o’. Gabbard’s hostage letter DEMANDS Clinton say she’s very sorry fer callin’ Gabbard “a Russian asset” an’/or “bein’ groomed by Russia,” an’ that yonder story was “fabricated” t’ point that it’s “actionable as defamation.”
A new Quinnipiac Poll o’New Hampshire out this mornin’ shows Joe Biden sittin’ at around 20 percent, while Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders an’ Pete Buttigieg be now statistically tied. T’ poll be bad news fer some lower pollin’ candidates, but I think t’most interestin’ thin’ be yonder enthusiasm gap between top tier candidates. [Poll]

People close t’former Massachusetts go’ernor De’al Patrick say #HesRunnin’. Patrick be said t’have warned Joe Biden, an’ been tryin’ t’pick off staffers from other campaigns. Politico writes Patrick’s campaign be a response t’proposed taxes on yonder super rich, an’ that some in t’Democratic party leadership see Patrick as a worthy successor t’Barrack Obama. Ye Washington Post notes that Patrick’s potential entry might not be t’smartest career move, an’ that all yonder best staffers already have decent gigs as they dig in fer 2020.
Wi’ Sen. Pat Roberts joinin’ yonder rest o’Republicans runnin’ from yonder Hill, ye race t’fill Roberts’s seat has created ripple effects downballot as Trump World an’ t’Ne’er Trumpers unsheath their backstabbin’ long kni’es. An’ on thar other side o’ye aisle, senior Democratic leaders an’ risin’ stars like Rep. Sharice Da’ids be already eyeballin’ their own chances.
Maya Rockymoore Cummin’s says #ShesRunnin’ fer Maryland’s 7th District, ye same seat that was occupied by her late husband, Elijah Cummin’s. Cummin’s says she’ll step down as ye chair o’t’ state’s Democratic Party t’a’oid any conflicts o’interest. A special election primary will be held on Feb. 4, wi’ a special election on April 28 — ye same day as ye state’s 2020 primary — wi’ yonder winner ser’in’ out ye rest o’Cummin’s’s congressional term.

Former UN ambassador Nikki Haley tried t’embussen REXXON, John Kelly, an’ HR McMaster on Hannity’s show last night. At ‘un point Haley argued wi’ Hannity about Ye TRANSCRIPTS, sayin’ she didn’t think it was “good fer us t’ever want a foreign country t’in’estigate an American,” but concluded ye impeachment inquiry was a fake news witch-pursuit-thin’ led by alien lizards who eat pizzas made o’babies. This mornin’, Haley went on thar Today Show an’ said Trump was a “truthful” landlubber when he was wi’ her, an’ a bigly good brain that wasn’t full o’stupids. This caused ye Reaganites at Scarborough an’ Co. t’giggle until they peed in their Dockers. #ShesRunnin’.
Laura Ingraham’s white power hour was all about reclaimin’ “our history an’ heritage.” Ingraham heiled yonder neo-fascist regimes tryin’ t’ake over Western Europe, sayin’ ye best way t’honor veterans who fought fascism was by … peddlin’ fascism.
Twitter needs a hand draftin’ policies t’deal wi’ deep fakes so it’s askin’ users t’ake a quick sur’ey t’get a better read on wha’ ye’d like them t’do. It’s multiple choice, so ye’re not goin’ t’be able t’draw any penises (fer better or worse).
Former White House liar Sean Spicer was finally booted off that game show fer C- an’ D-list celebrities who think they can dance. Trump shitposted encouragement fer Spicer, callin’ him “a great an’ very loyal guy who be workin’ very hard,” but thar post was deleted after Spicer was “Ye’re Fired” from ye show. Trump later shitposted that Spicer had “a great try.”

Peter Kin' T' Lea'e Congress, No Not Ste'e Kin', Yonder *Other* Bigot

Rep. Peter Kin’ (R-NY) announced on Facebook this mornin’ that he won’t run fer reelection next year, makin’ him thar 20th Republican in Congress t’call it quits before next year’s referendum on Donald Trump — or maybe “President Pence.” Yonder Long Island Republican be ‘un o’those Republican “moderates,” meanin’ he’s generally rightwin’ on e’erythin’ but has also been ye rare R who’s cosponsored some bills callin’ fer modest gun safety reforms like uni’ersal background checks.
In his statement, Kin’ said he’d talked it over wi’ his wife an’ kids (they’re both adults), an’ decided that “after 28 years o’spendin’ 4 days a week in Washington, D.C., it be time t’end yonder weekly commute an’ be home in Seaford.” We’re not sure if that translates t’dead lass, live boy, or whopper o’a financial scandal. Or p’raps he jus’ wants t’be able t’get out while ye gettin’’s good, although he emphasized that while he’s still in Congress he plans t’vote against impeachin’ Trump, an’ t’support Trump’s 2020 bid.
Around Wonkette, Pete Kin’ will always be remembered as yonder guy who thought thar IRA was a great bunch o’freedom fighters but who disliked other terrorists — which he figured had t’include most American Muslims. He was also known t’most Americans as “Oh, Peter Kin’. Ye bigot from New York, not yonder bigot from Iowa.”

Aft in thar 1980s, Kin’ wasn’t jus’ sympathetic t’har cause o’Catholics in Northern Ireland, he was an outright supporter o’ye Irish Republican Army. He raised funds fer Noraid, an Irish-American outfit that sent money (an’ maybe guns? It was rumored!) t’ IRA. An’ he said this at a rally in Nassau County, New York, in 1982:

We must pledge oursel’es t’support those bra’e men an’ women who this very moment be carryin’ forth yonder struggle against British imperialism in thar streets o’Belfast an’ Derry.

Yarr, that’s yonder same IRA that had been bombin’ British soldiers throughout ye ’70s, assassinated Admiral Louis Mountbatten in 1979, an’ in 1982 killed eight unarmed soldiers in Hyde Park in London, but they had it comin’ fer bein’ in a military parade. In 1984, ye IRA tried t’kill Margaret Thatcher wi’ a bomb, but only managed t’murder five ci’ilians (includin’ a member o’Parliament) an’ injure 31. Jus’ a year later, Kin’ said thin’s happen in a bra’e Freedom Struggle: “If ci’ilians be killed in an attack on a military installation, it be certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame thar IRA fer it.” He didn’t actually publicly disown t’IRA until 2005, an’ then largely because he was grumpy that yonder Republic o’Ireland hadn’t been supporti’e o’ye Gulf War.
Followin’ 9/11, Kin’ got religion, or at least religious bigotry, an’ managed t’find a nice broad brush wi’ which t’paint all Muslims. In 2007, Kin’ called fer intensified sur’eillance o’mosques, explainin’ t’Politico that thar be “too many mosques in this country” an’

Thar be too many people sympathetic t’radical Islam […] We should be lookin’ at them more carefully an’ findin’ out how we can infiltrate them.

His office complained that his comments had been taken out o’context, an’ that he’d only meant too many mosques that be soft on radicals, be all, although he also said on a Sean Hannity radio show that 85 percent o’American mosques have “extremist leadership.” In 2011, Kin’ launched hearin’s t’look into why American Muslims be probably on thar path t’killin’ ye — an’ made sure that t’hearin’ room prominently displayed a great grand photo o’ye World Trade Center in flames, in case anyone forgot that’s wha’ Muslims be all about. He somehow allowed Rep. Keith Ellison, a known Muslim, t’speak at thar hearin’s, where Ellison shamed Kin’’s bigotry.
[embedded content] Ellison breaks into tears explainin’ story. youtu.be
Since then, Kin’ has been a reliable vote fer almost e’ery bad Republican idea, wi’ t’exception o’his support fer gun safety measures, an’ while it was nice t’have ‘un lonely R votin’ fer decency now an’ then, we aren’t goin’ t’miss him. Now, if ye voters o’Iowa get their act t’gether next year an’ get rid o’their state’s biggest embarrassment, thar won’t be any further confusion after 2020.
An’ now Pete Kin’ can transition t’ye ine’itable career in a conser’ati'e think tank, wi’ a side gig on cable news, where he can call fer “bipartisanship.”
An’ right on cue, minority leader Chuck Schumer got all nostalgic fer t’good old days when ye could cooperate wi’ ye occasional bigot:

Too many mosques, or too many old white guys?

Bless Her Heart. Wonkagenda Fer Mon., Nov. 11, 2019

Mornin’ Wonketariat, an’ happy Veterans Day (or Armistice Day)! Here’s some o’t’ thin’s we may be talkin’ about today.

Ahead o’this week’s tele’ised impeachment inquiry hearin’s, Republicans have shifted their attacks t’say Trump was too stupid t’crime (again), an’ even if he did it wasn’t really a crime. Republicans want t’drag Joe an’ Hunter Biden into their pity party, but nobody expects that t’happen. Politico reports Trump intends t’keep spearheadin’ his own defense wi’ ramblin’ chopper talk an’ caps-locked shitpostin’ on social media, but experts on Trump World think he’s screwed.
John Bolton be not happy Mick Mul’aney be tryin’ t’jump into a lawsuit on whether or not Trump officials actually have t’obey subpoena requests by House impeachment in’estigators. Bolton’s people think Mul’aney be tryin’ t’weasel his way out o’bein’ dragged before impeachment in’estigators, while Mul’aney’s lawyer says he’s jus’ tryin’ t’obey t’law.
Despite gossip t’ye contrary, ye White House’s Ukraine expert on yonder National Security Council, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, be still on ye NSC even after testifyin’ that Trump was dickin’ around wi’ Ukraine.
Nikki Haley has crawled out o’t’ shadows t’gossip that she doesn’t want t’#IMPEACH. In her new book, Haley complains that REXXON an’ John Kelly tried t’“recruit” her fer A COUP t’“save ye country” from Trump’s crazy bullshit. Haley writes that John Kelly was kind o’mean t’her, an’ gushes that Trump ne’er tried t’grab her by thar pussy. She further gossips that Trump’s attempt t’bribe/extort/blackmail Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zeleinsky isn’t impeachable because “thar Ukrainians didn’t follow up wi’ t’in’estigation.” In a gabfest wi’ NPR this mornin’, Haley adds that thar’s no “smokin’ gun” fer Trump’s admitted extortion, calls Congress “arrogant” fer tryin’ t’#IMPEACH ye motherfucker, an’ says she’ll campaign fer Trump in 2020. Bless her heart, #ShesRunnin’.Lev Parnas says he went t’Kiev, Ukraine, t’ell thar go’ernment it had t’feed ye Ukrainium ‘un fe’er dream if it wanted Mike Pence t’show up t’Volodomyr Zelenskiy’s inauguration, as well as help fightin’ off Russia’s encroachment. Yonder other chucklefuck, Igor Fruman, denies this, an’ so does Giuliani.
Thar New York Times has a good piece about how Trump’s decision t’kill DACA hinged on assertions by Jeff Sessions that he could do it. Ob’iously, t’lower courts disagreed.
Early this mornin’ Republican Rep. Peter Kin’ announced he’s resignin’. In a rather poorly written social media post, Kin’ bitches that he hates commutin’ aft an’ forth through ye Acela corridor, an’ wants t’stay home wi’ his family now. Geeks have yonder district as R+3, so it’s a potential pick-up opportunity fer Democrats in 2020.
T’ new Politico/Mornin’ Consult poll includes a potential candidacy o’Michael Bloomberg, but t’hin’ will jus’ make yer brain bleed if ye start applyin’ it t’har 2020 horse race. A more reliable (an’ readable) poll from yonder New York Times an’ Siena College does a better job o’breakin’ down t’Democratic primary in six swin’ states. An’ if ye’re feelin’ extra nerdy an’ masochistic, yonder Kaiser Family Foundation an’ Cook Political Report have their own poll on ye primaries, downballot races, an’ policy priorities in four swin’ states. In a nutshell, Five Thirty Eight breaks all this down by sayin’ Biden continues t’lead nationally while Sen. Elizabeth Warren inches t’yonder top in Iowa an’ Sen. Bernie Sanders clin’s t’a small lead in New Hampshire. [Politico/Mornin’ Consult / NYTimes Siena Poll / KFF/Cook]

Sen. Amy Klobuchar be throwin’ salad combs at her 2020 ri’als. Yesterday she went on CNN t’brush off t’potential candidacy o’Michael Bloomberg an’ claim nobody would give a damn about Mayor Pete runnin’ in 2020 if he were a lass (but I’m callin’ bullshit on that, nobody pays attention t’Wayne Messam, yonder mayor o’Miramar, Florida, who reported only $5 in donations in Q3). Klobuchar’s attack follows a New York Times story this weekend where a number o’his 2020 ri’als bitch about Buttigieg’s inexperience in ye face o’his risin’ poll numbers an’ stupidly large war chest.
This mornin’ Pete Buttigieg released a plan t’support veterans that focuses on increasin’ mental health care, suicide pre’ention, an’ expandin’ o’erall healthcare access fer veterans an’ their families. Ye plan also calls fer an end t’Trump’s trans troop ban, yonder honorin’ LGBTQ+ troops an’ veterans, an’ creatin’ racial an’ gender equality throughout ye military.
Sen. Bernie Sanders an’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drew large crowds in Iowa this weekend. As Sanders battles a risin’ Elizabeth Warren, yonder New York Times rather painfully writes Sanders — in yonder midst o’a campaign reboot — be bettin’ that thar duo will inspire a buddy-comedy vibe in an effort t’woo potential voters. In an inter’iew wi’ yonder Des Moines Register, Sanders ripped super rich guys desperately clin’in’ t’large bundles o’cash as they watch yonder 2020 race unfold.
Kamala Harris’s campaign dropped a video o’Harris on election night in 2016 tryin’ t’rally her supporters by sayin’ people need t’fight aft like super heroes, sayin’, “e’erythin’ that we have been talkin’ about from criminal justice reform, t’climate change, t’immigration, this shit be now really on ye line. Thar be no guarantee that we be any closer than ever before, an’ we may actually be even further behind.” This weekend Harris tried t’downplay her saggin’ poll numbers by arguin’ many voters remain undecided, an’ that top tier candidates have been standin’ on their soapboxes fer decades.

Axios gossips that former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg might not run if Joe Biden stays in t’race. Ye data obsessed Democrat-turned-Republican-turned Democrat be worried about an internal poll that shows 25 percent o’primary voters think he sucks more than any other candidate. Math nerds guesstimate Bloomberg could still get in yonder race, but Biden’s numbers suggest it’s unlikely #HesRunnin’.
Ye New York Times has a piece on how Andrew Yang’s campaign be spendin’ tons o’new money t’attract eyeballs an’ ear holes. T’ Yang gang doesn’t want anyone t’say he’s ye Ron Paul o’2020.
Yonder Alabama Daily News got its hands on some pollin’ from rightwin’ groups that shows Jeff Sessions wi’ a huge lead in t’Alabama Republican Senate primary; ALLEGED pedophile Roy Moore be tied fer third place at 11 percent.
In an inter’iew wi’ ABC’s Martha Raddatz, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley says more than a couple hundred US forces will be hangin’ around Syria fer a while. In a related story, National Security Ad’iser Robert O’Brien went on “Face yonder Nation” an’ said that he was “very concerned” Turkey had committed war crimes in Syria, addin’, “Thar be no place fer genocide, fer ethnic cleansin’, fer war crimes in thar 21st century.” Politico reports that Trump be likely t’say yonder US won’t give Turkey F-35s unless it gets rid o’t’ Russian missiles it bought in protest. In a normal administration this would be a grand deal. [Video / Photo Essay from Syria]
Thar be reports o’a pro-democracy protester bein’ shot by police in Hong Kong this mornin’. CNN be also reportin’ a man was set on fire after yellin’ that pro-democracy protesters were not Chinese.
Spain’s far-right Vox party has made significant gains in its fourth election in as many years, but rulin’ socialists continue t’hold a majority.
