        It does seem like it was a “surprise”, otherwise the security would have been too risky. Not crazy about seeing the President in the open like that, but now that it’s happened and is over, it seems destined to be one of the iconic moments of his Presidency!

    Oh, CN&N.
    You never learn.

    ““I must confess how I got that name,” Mattis started. Then he proceeded to tell a story about some very clever Marines who served under him:”

    “When the call sign originated, the then-colonel was a regimental commander in Twentynine Palms where, according to Mattis, “there’s nothing to do but go blow up the desert.” As he was leaving his operations office, he noticed the word “Chaos” written on the operations officer’s whiteboard.”

    ““I said, ‘What’s this about?’ I’m curious, you know. We all are. He says ‘oh you don’t need to know that,’” which only further piqued curiosity.”

    ““Finally, he kinda said, ‘Well it means the colonel has an outstanding solution,’ and it was very much tongue in cheek, ladies and gentlemen. They didn’t consider all my solutions quite as outstanding as I enthusiastically promoted them,” said (current SecDef Gen) Mattis.”

    From “Want To Know How Mattis Got The Callsign ‘Chaos’? Here’s The Story”
    http://taskandpurpose.com/mattis-nickname-callsign-chaos/
    From blowing up the desert in Twenty-nine Palms to blowing up the desert in, well, where is Chaos today?

    Rose McGowan Blasts Black-Clad Golden Globe Attendees for ‘Hollywood Fakery’

    Excerpt:

    In follow-up tweets, actress Rosanna Arquette — who also accused Weinstein of abuse — added that she hadn’t been invited either, and neither had her alleged fellow victims Mira Sorvino, Annabella Sciorra, and Daryl Hannah. Actor Corey Feldman, who had spoken out about his alleged mistreatment in Hollywood for years, also tweeted that he had not been invited.

      That’s because the attendees didn’t care about the victims, they just wanted to feel morally superior.

    Quote from Gorka on Wolff interviewing in the WH ………..Can I just say first, I’m not at all surprised who or where…… Had Preibus and Bannon’s number back in the primary
    anyways….. here’s the gorka quote
    ” So, when I met Michael Wolff in Reince Priebus’ office, where he was waiting to talk to Steve Bannon, and after I had been told to also speak to him for his book, my attitude was polite but firm: “Thanks but no thanks.” Our brief encounter reinforced my gut feeling that this oleaginous scribe had no interest in being fair and unbiased.”

    CNN Reporter: Talk of Oprah Winfrey for President Shows Democrats Have ‘Thin Bench’ for 2020
    http://freebeacon.com/politics/cnn-reporter-talk-oprah-winfrey-president-shows-democrats-thin-bench/

    Excerpt:

    “I do think it also speaks to this 2020 campaign for the Democrats is going to be a free-for-all,” Raju said. “There’s so many people who want to run and the Democrats—there really are not that many who people can see as beating Donald Trump. They have a pretty thin bench at the end of the day.”

    Gov. Cuomo wants to increase wages and get rid of tips, like Seattle did.

    Seems more and more peeps in NYS are waking up. Seattle-ites fell for this hook line and sinker. Upstate NY restaurant workers are not havin’ it.

    “The only one is who stands to gain is the state because they would get more tax from the extra money people earn,” he said.

      Exactly, re: the restaurant worker and govt intentions. I always give my waitress/waiter cash tips, never on the card. When you get paid the hourly wage they do, you ought to get tipped tax free.
