  1. So is that why you cherry picked 52% (the highest approval number for Trump at any time since his taking office (according to Rasmussen, your source) rather than the current number? Notably, even with Rasmussen, the Strongly Disapprove numbers are consistently higher than the approval numbers. You're not fooling us, but if you're serious, you're being dishonest with yourself.
  2. Well, in Trump World facts apparently don't matter: It’s easy to fact check Trump’s lies. He tells the same ones all the time. So we shouldn't be surprised that his supporters don't care about them.
  3. Once again your math is off. His approval rating is 39%, not 52%: https://news.gallup.com/poll/203198/presidential-approval-ratings-donald-trump.aspx Further, the US population is 308 million. Only 78% of which are old enough to vote (over 18). That means at a 39% approval rating only 94 million adults support Trump, not the 150 million you claim.

    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    Suicide by cop... Trenton police officers shoot, kill man threatening to harm himself, authorities say Trenton police officers shot and killed a 42-year-old man Thursday after responding to 911 calls about a person threatening to harm himself, authorities said. Jason Williams, of Trenton, was holding a gun and standing in the doorway of a residence on the 600 block of North Olden Avenue when four officers arrived to investigate the 911 calls received at 10:46 p.m., according to the state Office of the Attorney General. During the encounter, two officers shot Williams, authorities said. He was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The gun Williams was holding was later determined to be a BB gun, authorities said. Click on the link for the full article
  12. NASA Finds That Dormant Viruses Activate During Spaceflight Space travel can seem exciting to those watching from afar but it comes with many scary complications which surface when adjusting to new conditions never experienced on Earth. Now new NASA research is revealing that being in space may reactivate dormant viruses. Herpes viruses reactivated The herpes viruses was reactivated in more than half of the crew aboard Space Shuttle and International Space Station (ISS) missions. "NASA astronauts endure weeks or even months exposed to microgravity and cosmic radiation - not to mention the extreme G forces of take-off and re-entry," said senior author Dr. Satish K. Mehta of KBR Wyle at the Johnson Space Center. "This physical challenge is compounded by more familiar stressors like social separation, confinement and an altered sleep-wake cycle." Mehta and colleagues monitor the physiological impact of spaceflight by analyzing saliva, blood and urine samples from the astronauts. What they found was problematic. "During spaceflight there is a rise in secretion of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which are known to suppress the immune system. In keeping with this, we find that astronaut's immune cells - particularly those that normally suppress and eliminate viruses - become less effective during spaceflight and sometimes for up to 60 days after." These circumstances could be further compounded by the stressful environment the astronauts find themselves in. "To date, 47 out of 89 (53%) astronauts on short space shuttle flights, and 14 out of 23 (61%) on longer ISS missions shed herpes viruses in their saliva or urine samples," reported Mehta. "These frequencies - as well as the quantity - of viral shedding are markedly higher than in samples from before or after flight, or from matched healthy controls." Researchers detected four of the eight known human herpes viruses including oral and genital herpes (HSV), chickenpox and shingles (VZV). Click on the link for the full article
