Morning Reads for Tuesday, September 10

Good morning! Yesterday US News ranked Agnes Scott College as the nation’s most innovative liberal arts college, and having the best experience for first-year students. And kudos to Spelman for being the top HBCU in the country (womens colleges FTW), and to Morehouse, Tech, Emory, Georgia State, UGA, and Mercer for their recognitions and for being *almost* as awesome as Agnes Scott & Spelman.

Looks like we survived Bolton without bombing anyone. By this administration’s standards this is a major accomplishment.

The revolving door of high level officials and cabinet members is staggering. Trump is going to run out of the “best” people to hire and he’ll have to resort to hiring lackeys, relatives and crooks.

Bolton should’ve shaved the mustache. Trump didn’t like it.

“Presentation is very important because you’re representing America not only on the national stage but also the international stage, depending on the position,” said Trump spokesman Jason Miller.

“President Donald Trump’s job approval rating fell several points in a new survey, while Americans’ fears of a looming recession have escalated and their confidence in Trump’s handling of the economy has sagged.”

Bishop bested McCready 50.8 – 48.6 in today’s NC-9 special election. Trump campaigning for Bishop the night before may be what carried the day for Bishop.
