Coffee & Morning Headlines- Taylor Swift, Kavanaugh, Airports
Back to the grind after a very contentious week and I’m sure this week will be no different, but, take a deep breath, inhale the aroma of your coffee, and let’s review today’s headline news.
I don’t know much about Taylor Swift and in today’s world, that means she is quiet politically and not running around saying “F- Trump” like Robert DeNiro, but all that is about to change.
On Instagram, Swift broke out in favor of Democratic Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen over Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) in the state’s Senate race. In part, Swift posted that Blackburn’s voting record “appalls and terrifies” her.
Swift went on to write about protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community.
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh
After getting the nomination confirmed by the Senate on Saturday, Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the Supreme Court Justice later that same day. Come Tuesday, that will be his first day on the bench.
Weird Stuff Happens at Airports
Weird things happen at the airport all the time, just hang out at one long enough to prove my point. At times it is like the opening scene of the bar in Star Wars, a ticket to travel into the Twilight Zone.
For example, remember that photo of Donald Trump, Jr. waiting to board a plan and sitting down reading a newspaper was Robert Mueller in the same picture. Talk about odd.
But now, Stormy Daniels tweeted that she bumped into Michael Cohen at the airport. Yeah, that Michael Cohen. And get this, Cohen said hi.
Stormy tweeted that while she was planning on taking a flight to New York, apparently, she landed on Mars.
Have a good day and rest of the week and keep checking in for updated posts on politics, news, and laws that affect you.
