Adam Geller Associated Press Published 5:03 p.m. UTC Jul 30, 2018 Goshen, Indiana – The sermon had been preached, the last prayers offered. Now, Mike Yoder decided, the time had come to share unsettling news. As congregants at Silverwood Mennonite Church chatted around a Sunday potluck spread, Yoder, a county commissioner for 13 years and a dairy farmer for much longer, huddled with Pastor Jeremy Shue at the edge of the hall. There was a very good chance, Yoder confided, that the nation’s newest immigration detention center would soon rise from a soybean field north of town. “One of the only positives is that it would be less of a drive to protest,” Shue said. Yoder needed no reminder of the potential for conflict. The Republican had paid close attention when nearly two-thirds of Elkhart County’s voters backed Donald Trump for president after a campaign in which he lambasted immigrants. He knew just as well that the politically mixed county … [Read more...] about Community that backed Trump: No to migrant detention
Tim Reynolds Associated Press Published 1:22 p.m. UTC Jun 6, 2018 Cleveland – Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds last year. They have not changed their minds this year. No matter whose team wins the NBA championship, neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon. On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl – a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren’t planning on attending of abandoning their fans – Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles. “I’m not surprised. It’s typical of him,” James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump’s decision to cancel. “I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.” On the eve of Game 3 of the Warriors-Cavaliers … [Read more...] about Warriors, Cavs stars not going to White House

Earlier this week, the Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson wrote a piece detailing President Donald Trump’s tendency to say “people don’t realize” or “most people don’t even know” when describing historical facts. “Is Trump playing the role of educator in chief, or simply sharing historical facts he’s newly learned?” Johnson wrote in the piece. During a Hardball panel on the topic, MSNBC host Chris Matthews obviously was in the camp that Trump was just learning about these things when he publicly speaks about them. And Matthews questioned whether the president had much of an education. “First of all, I did know that the French were our allies in the American Revolution,” Matthews said. “And every Republican certainly knows that Lincoln was the first Republican president. ALL Republicans know that.” The Hardball host continued, “Did Trump really go to college? I mean really. I mean really.
