Saturday News: Trump’s 100 Days Seriously Damaging “Norms of American Government,” Among Other Disasters; Climate March Today


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, April 29. By the way, I’m not a big David Brooks fan, but I do think this is very funny: Trump’s “a failure, but I’m looking at opportunities for growth; it’s like when you have a student who gets an ‘F,’ you say, oh you got a ‘D minus,’ much better, so I’m looking on the bright side. If you go from dangerous to fickle, I think that’s a good move.” Funny, although I’m not convinced Trump’s actually gone up from F to D minus.

  • Statement from HD-73 Dem candidate Sarah Smith on today’s nomination of Debra Rodman:

    Despite coming up just short for the Democratic nomination, it has been so humbling and energizing to see so many democrats be involved in this process. If we come together, we can make the change we want to see in Virginia.

    I am enthusiastically endorsing Debra Rodman to beat John O’Bannon in November. I wish Debra the best of luck.

  • HD-73 nominee Debra Rodman statement on winning the nomination:

    “I am so excited to announce that I have won the Democratic nomination. I’m humbled by the outcome of the today’s vote and am so grateful to all of my amazing volunteers who made it happen. Most of all I want to thank my amazing colleagues who ran with me in this race. Chelsea Savage, Bill Coleman, and Sarah Smith. And of course thank you to everyone who came out and voted for me and all my supporters!”
