Donald Trump used the occasion of a speech at a tank factory in Ohio (which is busy creating jobs by building additional M1 battle tanks the Army didn't want) to call Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" again, as one does when discussing military readiness and pork-barrel spending. And while he was at it, he also took the chance to tell the crowd how much he still hates one veteran in particular, even though that veteran happens to be dead.


America loves Trump, and real America DOES NOT LIKE John McCain. In fact, as Trump says. "So I have to be honest, I've never liked him much, hasn't been for me. I've really, probably, never will." You know, the fake dossier and the healthcare vote. Guess John McCain, who died last year, better not get any illusions about getting on Trump's good side.

And then Trump moved on to what a big ingrate McCain was after he died. not even after the very nice funeral Trump was not invited to attend, but which he says he "had to" authorize:

I endorsed him, at his request, and I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didn't get "thank you." That's okay. We sent him on the way, but I wasn't a fan of John McCain.

Shame on John McCain's inconsiderate shade (or sure, his family). And to think Trump would be so disrespected after how very nice he'd been the whole time, lowering flags to half staff -- but only after everyone pointed out he was being an asshole about it.

Stay classy, America! It is now your Open Thread!

There was a time, a few months ago, when everyone had written off Elizabeth Warren. Well, not me, because I am a fabulous genius, but lots of other people. The "very reasonable" talking heads on all the various news channels, the kind of people who used to say things like "Oh, we'd like universal health care too, but 'the people' will never go for it!" but who definitely did not actually want universal health care for any reason, and even the Trump campaign. Though, to be fair, the Trump campaign didn't think Trump had much of a chance of winning in 2016 either.

But now, as more and more people hear her speak, hear her plans, hear what she wants to do and how she wants to do it... Elizabeth Warren is rising up in the polls. She's a contender. In the most recent Quinnipiac poll, she was closing in on Sanders for second place nationally, and in California and Nevada polls, she's in second place.

And now, according to a report from Politico, the Trump campaign is now scrambling and panicking and... stalking her?
