• 37 mph winds succeeded where Democrats failed when Trump’s newly installed panels for the US border wall fell over Wednesday, landing on the Mexican side of the border. Since Mexico won’t pay for the wall, they might be on their own for the trees.

• According to a Morning Consult-Politico poll, an astonishing 49 percent of Republicans consider Russia an ally.

• Thru his attorney, Lev Parnas, procured tickets from the office of Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) to attend the Senate trial, but he couldn’t get in. You see, because he was under house arrest, charged with campaign finance violations, Parnas was wearing an electronic monitoring device around his ankle and the metal detector went “Nope”.

When pushed by reporters, Barrasso said his constituents, 19 farmers and a cow named Lenny, were behind him all the way.
