President Donald Trump went to El Paso, Texas in wake of a white supremacist attack that quoted the president’s own words. The president went to El Paso last year and he still owes the city about $500,000 for the security costs.

While spending the evening with people reeling from a horrifying shooting that killed nearly two dozen people, Trump bragged about his crowd size in El Paso. He also signed books for his supporters, calling it “an amazing day.”

At the hospital, Trump was met by people he called heroes, but the group didn’t seem all that enthusiastic to see him. One woman standing behind him seemed to be averting her face from the cameras.

The tax records obtained by the Times show that things really started going downhill for Trump in 1990, when he reported a gross net loss of $400 million.

Published

Tennessee state Sen. Joey Hensley (R) is under investigation by a medical review board for providing opioids to family members, one of which was his second cousin -- who also happened to be his lover, the Tennessean reports.

Everyone there knows everyone. There were multiple relationships and the physician-patient relationship was only one and somewhat incidental to the others.”
