Regulars abandon Duluth cafe after owners let Fox & Friends broadcast there before Trump visit

Published

on

A beloved local diner in Duluth, Minnesota, that hosted Fox News’ morning show there in honor of Trump’s speech in the city is facing backlash.

Uncle Loui’s Cafe hosted the divisive program, which is appointment viewing for President Trump, and seemed surprised when some people responded angrily.

“There were some regulars that come in and now don’t want to eat here anymore, which is unfortunate,” said Matt Berthiaume, whose mother owns the diner.

Other people who ate at the diner took the opportunity to express their support of Trump, such as a man who said he supports the wall as a way to keep out “people who want to do us harm.”

Uncle Loui’s owner Debra Strop didn’t fully realize how some people would perceive the decision.

“My mom’s so apolitical—she just wants to feed people,” Berthiaume said. “She just wants people to come in. It’s great exposure for our restaurant.”

Strop says she’s glad Duluth hosted Trump.

“I mean our hotels are full, revenue’s good, my restaurant is busy, I’m sure a million other restaurants are busy,” she told Minnesota Public Radio. “Everyone’s got their opinion, and I’m on board with this, I think it’s good for the city of Duluth.”

The Facebook post announcing the event has been removed. The diner’s Yelp page has gotten some negative reviews which appear illegitimate.

Nobel economist says he’s done the math — and the risk Trump and McConnell pose to the economy is ‘terrifying’

Published

Very much a student of New Deal economics, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has often stressed that helping the unemployed during an economic downturn not only helps those who are out of work — it also benefits the economy on the whole. Krugman made that point many times during the Great Recession, and in a column published this week, the liberal economist warns that the “coronavirus recession of 2020” will become even worse if unemployed Americans don’t receive the help that they need.

Government watchdogs, Democratic lawmakers, and pro-democracy advocates declared it a "Friday Night Massacre" for the U.S. Postal Service after news broke in a classic end-of-the-week dump that Louis DeJoy—a major GOP donor to President Donald Trump and the recently appointed Postmaster General—had issued a sweeping overhaul of the agency, including the ouster of top executives from key posts and the reshuffling of more than two dozen other officials and operational managers.
