The same Donald Trump pudding.

In "The Trump media era ends not with a wow but a whisper" (WaPo), Philip Bump observes that Trump was on TV yesterday, but probably almost nobody watched:"You probably missed it, because it was Donald Trump offering the same pudding of rhetoric we’ve heard so often to an anchor on the far-right network Newsmax." Did you probably miss it because it was the same pudding? Or did you probably miss it because it was on a pretty obscure news channel and you didn't notice it was on because all the big...

Is it really true, this story about the Cuban boy who played the "Star-Spangled Banner" when the Cuban police forced him to play?

Cushman identifies the violinist, Luis Haza, as her friend. His father, a Cuban police official, was executed after Castro took power."My father though...
