NYT EDITORIAL BOARD LAUGHS OFF TRUMP’S ECONOMIC PLAN:

In a speech billed as a blueprint for stimulating growth and creating jobs, Mr. Trump offered a grab bag of ideas that borrow from discredited supply-side economics, the fossil fuel industry’s wish list and “America First” isolationism. He also criticized Hillary Clinton and President Obama for what he called their “job-killing, tax-raising, poverty-inducing” agenda. It was vintage Trump, full of promises of greatness and victories backed by fantastical proposals.

MAINE GOP SENATOR SAYS NO TO TRUMP: Susan Collins will not be voting for Donald Trump this November. She joins the likes of Ben Sasse and Lindsey Graham. Collins points out that the “Khan incident” was when she couldn’t stay silent any longer. Which kind of seems odd to me. Was she ok with the ban on Muslims? Or the wall? I’m spitballin’ here.

IS CLINTON A “PRUDENT HAWK”? Basically this article goes, “Yeah, she has loved interventionism, but now that she’s president she’ll focus on domestic policies. Just look at six of her seven “biggest accomplishments” on her website – they’re all based on domestic issues!”

Color me skeptical.
