On this date in 1801, the state of Tennessee outlawed the practice of dueling. In 1969, though, “Sesame Street” debuted for the first time.

Let the speculation begin. As all of this sinks in on both sides, we’re thinking of appointments and cabinet posts. Here’s one: Does Trump replace Comey? Clinton fired Sessions before his term was out, so there is precedent. I say he does or either Comey steps down.

Trump will replace Comey after releases his tax returns and initiates lawsuits against all of the lying women that besmirched his reputation.

Well, it’s time to move from theory/meaningless repeal vote to real action on fixing this healthcare mess. Having had 7 years to draw up a good plan (whatever that is), The Republicans better to be ready to endure the wailing and gnashing of teeth that will come with any change they try to make.

P.S. Every time I read about someone wanting to move to Canada, I chuckle as I think about a possible reverse Canadian Bacon movie script. Country Ham?

Lets do some tea leave reading. Jared Kushner was Trump’s point man this morning at the White House, and met with the Chief of Staff. Kushner has been mentioned as the Trump gate keeper in the past 6 months. I know some positions in the executive branch have nepotism policies. Is Chief of Staff one? I know advisors do not.

I don’t think Jared has the chops for that job. Gimme a Chris Christie or someone w experience and balls there

I agree. However; Trump has placed inexperience people with no chops in other key positions in both his campaign and in his professional dealings. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.

Christie appointment will be on hold until after he cleans up his own mess with his former aids.

Forget Assange. Will Edward Snowden, a US citizen and whistleblower to the obliteration of the 4th Amendment by the CIA, NSA, FBI, EI EI O… receive a pardon?

Leave it to the Brits to analyze our election spot on: http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2016/11/sneering-response-trumps-victory-reveals-exactly-won/

The summary bears repeating, “This nasty, reactionary turn against democracy by so many of the well-educated both explains the victory of Trump, which neatly doubles up as a slap in the face of the establishment, and confirms why democracy is more important today than it has ever been. Because it really would be folly, madness in fact, to let an elite that so little understands ordinary people, and in fact loathes them, to run society unilaterally. Now that would be dangerous, more dangerous than Trump.”

Yeah, the well-educated elected Trump, a man whose understanding of ordinary people is that of a rich reality TV star, so we’ve got that going for us.

Putin sent Trump a telegram? Who the hell sends a telegram? And why? So some kid in a funny hat showed up at Trump Tower with an envelope for Donald from Moscow?
