Coffee & Morning Headlines- California Wildfires, Florida’s Election Count, Macron
Today is a Veteran’s Day, our national holiday to honor those that serve. So, to all the men and women of the armed forces, thank you for what you do and the sacrifices you have made to protect those like me and our great nation.
Thirty-one people have died so far in the California wildfires and twenty-nine from the Camp fire which is the most destructive fire in the state’s history with 111,000 acres destroyed, including the town of Paradise which has been wiped off the map.
President Trump, never short on ignorance: “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. “Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”
The result, the International Association of Fire Fighters and California Professional Firefighters disagree with the President and accuse the President of making the California wildfires about politics.

Florida’s Déjà vu
Florida is back to counting votes. Palm Beach County’s elections supervisor says it will not be able to meet the deadlines and multiple lawsuits have already been filed.
French President Emmanuel Macron
President Macron slammed the President and his “nationalism” and “America first” policies.
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying: Our interest first. Who cares about the others?”
Who is Lil John? Who is Matthew Whitaker?
There are lies and then there is being a pathological liar. Either President Trump is a pathological liar or he is in the beginning stages of dementia.
At first when asked by a reporter about Lil John, President Trump remarked he didn’t know who he was regardless of taking photos with him and Lil John being on The Apprentice. But more importantly, the President doesn’t know Matthew Whitaker, his new acting Attorney General, yet in a Fox News interview Trump said he knew him and of course, is a great guy. Kellyanne Conway says Trump does know Whitaker. All very confusing, maybe that’s the idea.
It’s Monday, so load up on the coffee and have a great week.
