Thursday's HOT MIC
Important Public Service Announcement from the Dept. of News You Can Use:
It's a "dirty little secret" -- sigh:
A new study has found a dirty little secret about hand dryers found in many public restrooms. Researchers say the machines which are designed to blow hot air on you are actually sucking up feces particles and spraying them onto your hands.
Ew! How do all you prissy, preachy environmentalist wackos feel now????
I've always used the paper towels when given a choice, but in those instances where there are no choices -- I will just let my hands drip-dry in the future, thank you very much.
More Democrats say Trump, not Obama, responsible for economy.
Yes, the Democrats are finally acknowledging that President Donald Trump has impacted the economy. They don't exactly think he's done a good job, however. From National Review's Mairead McArdle:
Approximately 46 percent of Democrats say Trump is responsible for today’s economy, beating out the 43 percent who say it is due to Obama, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. Overall, only 34 percent of those surveyed gave credit for the economy to Obama, while 54 percent credited Trump.
The numbers are notable since most economists agree the economy is booming, and Democrats are not usually eager to give credit to Trump. The stock market has risen over the past year and unemployment has been slashed to 4.1 percent, its lowest level since December 2000.
However, 61 percent of the Democrats polled do not believe the economy is doing very well, compared to just 16 percent of Republicans.

Earlier this week, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Devin Nunes (R-CA) threatened to “hold in contempt and impeach” FBI Director Christopher Wray and Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if they didn't cough up a key, unredacted two-page document that was requested by the Committee many months ago.
Late yesterday, Nunes announced that Rosenstein finally produced a version of the electronic communication [EC], which he said contained the information necessary to advance the Committee’s ongoing investigation.
The EC reportedly includes information regarding an Australian diplomat talking to Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, and is allegedly what spurred the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign (which was launched right after Trump clinched the nomination at the Republican National Convention in July of 2016).
While we wait for the EC to be released to the public, here are some tweets blasted out by Lee Zeldin regarding the memo and the special counsel investigation:
Good. No, really.
What a bunch of wretched hypocrites.
