"President Trump's brazen insults and denigration of one of America's most steadfast allies, Germany, is an embarrassment," Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a joint statement.

The sheer absurdity of it ... I'm talking about Dean Crouch. The Tallahassee Academy Sports manager whose selfless action probably saved at least one life -- yet, cost him his job. The story has been exploding on social media since Wednesday, when it first appeared in the Tallahassee Demomcrat, and why wouldn't it?.
