Just wanted to mention a couple of interesting tidbits today:
- PoliticoMA and State House News Service are both reporting that Elizabeth Warren would be more than happy to support Scott Brown, whom of course she ejected from the Senate, should he be Trump’s nominee to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs. She believes he will pour his heart and soul into serving our veterans and she will go to bat for him.
- Meanwhile yours truly may have found a point of agreement with Trump. Apparently he spoke on the phone today with the President of Taiwan. Rachel Maddow and the foreign policy establishment are freaking out about it, and who knows where this will ultimately lead, but I have long thought we should recognize the Taipei government as the legitimate government of Taiwan. This should in no way change that Beijing is the legitimate government of the mainland, but China doesn’t get to tell us whom we do and do not recognize.
