Like everything in politics, there is a narrative, an accepted line of thought about something or someone that there is rarely an effort to prove false or even question. It just is. Democrats care about minorities; Republicans are racist, sexist, bigoted homophobes; politicians don't care if they get reelected, and so on. It is either the reason or the result, that the political process is carried out in America the way it is. But sometimes, something different from what we have been led to believe is seen or heard. It might be something small, but it upends the narrative that has been created around it, or them, and it might just make you see that person or that thing a bit differently.
Former President Donald Trump has been in the public eye for most of his adult life in one way or another. He burst onto the scene in the 1980s as the quintessential business mogul, fabulously wealthy and successful, with a beautiful wife. He went on to do reality TV, and even cameo appearances in movies like Home Alone 2. He came to politics late in life, and when he did, he aimed for the top spot. Both business and politics are hard-nosed arenas, but Trump has had the mentality for each one.

The United States Senate has lowered itself to the whims of one member, a so-called ‘distinguished senator’ from Pennsylvania who refuses to appear on the Hill or with the president of the United States in anything else but a grubby hoodie, billowing shorts, and drab sneakers.
No one signals the death of American decorum like Democratic Senator John Fetterman. Except, perhaps, for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer — who rarely misses a Sunday morning in front of television cameras, but who, over the weekend, very quietly dropped the suit-and-tie requirement on the Senate floor.
The hypocrisy is staggering: Fetterman insists he can do this very big job despite suffering a stroke that has left him with difficulty speaking and processing voices, that resulted in a six-week stay at Walter Reed for depression — yet he can’t expend the effort to look like a presentable member of Congress.
Actually, the question here is: Fetterman can’t, or won’t?
If we are to accept that everything is fine with Fetterman, then reasonable people can conclude that he simply doesn’t care.
We can assume that he is lazy, a slob, and is happy to present himself as someone who is not bringing 100 percent to the job. That he is a narcissist who thinks that a centuries-old dress code for members of Congress should not apply to him, that D.C. should lower its standards to meet his slovenliness, and laughably, as a source close to Fetterman once claimed, that ‘his relaxed, comfortable style is a sign that the senator is making a robust recovery.’
Sure. Nothing says you’ve beaten back depression by dressing as though you haven’t gotten off the couch for a week. Nothing says self-respect like showing up to the Hill in clothes you’d wear to scrub the tub. Most of us dress better for a coffee run.

As RedState reported, Texas AG Ken Paxton was acquitted of all impeachment charges on Saturday, representing a blow to Democrats and a group of Republicans who had sought to remove him from office. The impeachment centered on various corruption charges involving a real estate deal and several so-called whistleblowers.
Some questions about where things go next will be answered relatively soon. Paxton is scheduled to sit down with Tucker Carlson soon for an interview. You can bet he's not going to hold back.

United States District Judge for the Southern District of California Hon. Roger T. Benitez has granted a preliminary injunction against the Escondido Union School District (EUSD) in a case involving a requirement that teachers mislead parents as to their own children's "gender identity."
In this case, it's clear that consistency and predicates in other cases are being considered in the overall picture of parental rights. As the statement notes, the EUSD's transgender pronoun policy would somehow place gender confusion in a different category than a sports injury or other mental issues.

Hunter Biden was indicted by Special Counsel David Weiss on three federal felony counts related to his purchase of a firearm in 2018, two counts being related to his attestation of being drug-free on a purchase form and one count related to his possession of the firearm while using narcotics.
Throughout the investigation of Hunter Biden for firearm and tax crimes — a sideshow which has become a significant issue for the president — Joe Biden has insisted that "my son has done nothing wrong" and said "I trust him" and "have faith in him."
