  1. John Kelly was down at the border doing “knock and talks” with ICE apprehending people. Not only that, but he was also down in the tunnels!

    Daytime TV’s New Star? Sean Spicer/

    By MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM FEB. 10, 2017/

    “He is no match for “The Young and the Restless.” But he is beating “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

    Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary whose early tenure has prompted political fireworks and late-night parodies, may be struggling to settle in behind the lectern. On the airwaves, however, he is daytime television’s new big hit.

    Mr. Spicer’s briefings, carried live by the major cable news networks, are pulling in an average of 4.3 million viewers, according to data from Nielsen. Audiences across Fox News, MSNBC and CNN grow by an average of 10 percent when Mr. Spicer comes onscreen to discuss the latest news on President Trump, statistics show.

    The soap opera at the White House is outscoring actual soaps like “General Hospital” and “The Bold and the Beautiful,” which typically air around the same time. Mr. Spicer’s ratings are on par with prime-time entertainment like “MasterChef Junior” on Fox and the ABC sitcom “Dr. Ken,” which draw around four million viewers each.

    The big ratings offer a quantifiable measure for what has become a truism in Washington: Three weeks into the Trump administration, Mr. Spicer’s daily joust with reporters — peppered with fiery exchanges, memorable malapropisms and some much discussed dissembling — are now must-see-TV for the political class.”

    How am I supposed to get a decent night of sleep? Every day there are like 5 exciting political things going on. 🙂 And I have to take time to read and learn too. Why did I ever think that things would be calm after the election?
