It has been an interesting week in politics. First, Donald Trump did his first interview with Megyn Kelly on Tuesday night. It had been their first public interview since last August and it aired on the Fox parent network. In the interview, Megyn asked Trump some more personal questions and we got to get an inside look at his personal life. For instance, Donald's favorite movie is Citizen Kane and he does not drink due to his brother's death from alcoholism 1981. Trump also gave us an inside look into his tweeting process since one of the things he is known for on the campaign trail is tweeting. He says that until 7pm he himself does not actually tweet, but his staffers do and they show them to him and he his final veto power over all tweets. He added that when he edits them he usually adds lots of exclamation points. It appears that after this interview Trump and Megyn have rectified their relationship and are no longer in what was a tense feud for almost nine months.
Also this past tuesday, the GOP and DNC had primaries. The GOP in Oregon and the DNC in Oregon and Kentucky. For the GOP, Trump won Oregon as expected because he is the last man standing in the GOP race and is inching closer to the magic number of 1237. On the Democratic side of things, Bernman won Oregon as expected, but Hillary narrowly won Kentucky over Bernman. Hillary has come under fire as of late for saying "We will put coal miners out of business." This has hurt her in rural states such as Kentucky and West Virginia where coal mining is a crucial industry. She narrowly won the state, but it was so close that Sanders and her split delegates evenly. From here, it appears that the Bern is not going anywhere and said he will stay in until as late as the convention. Its a bit ironic to say the least that there was all this previous talk about the Republicans being fractured, but now it appears the Democrats are in the same boat due to key differences on critical issues between Bernie and Hillary.
Earlier in the week, the DNC hosted their convention for the state of Nevada. In some strange and appearing to be corrupt scenario, Hillary won some of the left over delegates from Sanders even though Sanders won the state by a lot back in February. This led to a significant altercation and Sanders supporters were protesting the event and even throwing punches at Hillary supporters. Perhaps this is the return of the "Bernie Bros." DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz has said that this behavior is unacceptable. She herself has come under fire from more hardcore liberals that she is protecting Hillary the best she can. Mika Brezezski, the co-host of the MSNBC talk show, Morning Joe, has called for Wasserman Shultz to resign due to her blatant favoritism towards Hillary Clinton.
