    Tillerson's undersecretary issued a statement for Tillerson on the firing which contradicted the official White House version, that he'd been told prior to issuing the statement on Russia being behind the nerve agent assassination attempt in Salisbury so it couldn't be in retaliation for that. Now that undersecretary has been fired as well.

    Crazy close race in Pennsylvania house race.

    Dem leading by about 850 votes with about 3200 absentee ballots to be counted tomorrow (from mainly red counties).*

    In those counties, the republican has been getting about 55% or so of votes. In order to win he needs 73% of remaining absentee ballots to win. Close as hell for one of like 500+ house seats, but one in an otherwise easily red seat.

    Yeah, it was down to 95 votes before Allegheny county absentee votes came in (that's the county with Pittsburgh, so big city=dem leaning), which added about 700 votes towards the dem.

    Mind you, this is a house election, so district lines are a shithouse^2 normally. This seat, happens to be mostly suburbs and rural areas around Pittsburgh (doesn't even actually have the city proper).

    It's going to mainly count on Washington county, who has just said they will count their 1195 ballots tonight.

    Edit: Westmoreland county (1808 ballots, but closer spread so far) has also said they will count tonight now. We should have a winner tonight.

    “It’s the bowling ball test. They take a bowling ball from 20 feet up in the air and drop it on the hood of the car,” Trump said of Japan. “If the hood dents, the car doesn’t qualify. It’s horrible,” he said. It was unclear what he was talking about.
    Whomever wrote that article is clearly not an automotive engineer, but you gearheads know about the classic bowling ball test, you know, the one were you find a nice car on craigslist and you drive over to see it with a 20' ladder and a bowling ball

    He's doubling down on it.



    That's how he knows.
