Quote of the Day:

“Leaks don’t come from press people. They come from their bosses.”

— WTOP’s Neal Augenstein.

Whoopi Goldberg screws up Texas GOP Rep. Blake Farenthold’s surname, includes the word ‘fart’ 

“It seems like Republicans may be starting to turn on each other a little bit over this health care battle,” Whoopi explained. “Congressman Blake Fartenhall…Farenthold ….complained on a radio show about how Sen. Susan Collins holding out on voting and her response wa scauhg  on a hot mic. I don’t know what that means. …Susan Collins was heard saying something about this particularly senator.”

(He’s actually a member of the House, Whoopi, but no biggie.)

The other female co-hosts laughed and informed her that the “t” comes later in Farenthold’s name.

So it’s not actually pronounced “Fartenhall.”

Co-Host Joy Behar added, “Susan better watch herself because her mic is always on.”

Chachi for President in 2020? 

“Murkowski and Collins….just as well be Dems for the support they give as Republicans. Maine & Alaska voters… them OUT!” — actor Scott Baio, who served as a surrogate for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

By the way…Chachi blocked me on Twitter after I remarked on the above tweet, writing, “Chachi has thoughts on senators.”



He added, “To be clear, this is far from the uniform position/reasoning of the White House, it’s the opinion of one official.”

Philip Rucker, WaPo: This is making the rounds in WH. A top official told me “I was like what’s wrong with whoever you are? This was not a political decision.”

Maggie Haberman, NYT: Whoa whoa whoa. People in the West Wing aren’t on the same page??

Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner: Exactly. So what makes one anon source more credible than the other when it comes to speaking for the president?
