UA In the News — Nov. 12

A Rousing Reception
The Patriot Post – Nov. 12
President Trump received a rousing reception at Bryant-Denny Stadium at the University of Alabama this weekend. The president was there to attend the Alabama-LSU college football game. The stadium, which seats nearly 102,000, is one of the world’s largest. You can watch the brief video here. Incredibly, some reports suggested the president got a mixed reaction from the crowd. Fox News described it as “mostly warm.” If by mixed or “mostly warm” they mean 100,000 people were cheering while a few hundred weren’t, I suppose that’s “mixed.”

Why All of Trump’s Defenses Against Impeachment Are Doomed to Fail.
TIME – Nov. 11
We’ve reached the part of this tired charade where even those who’ve tried to escape the obvious conclusion now know that the emperor has no clothes. The mounting evidence from career diplomats, and Trump’s own political appointees, has laid bare his self-serving ploy in Ukraine. Many people have become numb to this Administration’s wrongdoing after almost three years of constant scandal. Some feel that no matter what Trump does, he’ll never be held accountable. Why should they invest time in today’s awful news, when it will give way in a few days or weeks without anything changing? . . . .
