The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2014 Worldwide Cost of Living survey ranked Singapore as the world’s most expensive city to live in. Note to Bill de Blasio – that was NOT a challenge.
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton said “our biggest national security problem is Barack Obama”. Not true. Every weekend he makes sure a vital national golf course gets Secret Service protection.

The Treasury Department reported that the national debt officially hit seventeen trillion dollars Friday only three weeks after Congress passed the debt extension bill. The U.S. debt amount is astronomical. America hasn’t been attacked by this many zeroes since Pearl Harbor.
John Kerry faced off with Russia’s foreign minister over the Ukraine crisis Tuesday. He’s fought in a war, opposed that war, threw his war medals over the White House fence and then ran for president as a war hero. John Kerry fought in Vietnam for your right to be strange.

The Conservative Political Action Conference is still going on down in Washington, D.C. And yesterday, Donald Trump was giving a speech, when he accidentally referred to former President Jimmy Carter — who’s still very much alive — as “the late, great Jimmy Carter.” Trump immediately apologized, and then said, “He wasn’t THAT great.”
Thirty Democratic senators held an all-night “talkathon” on the floor of the Senate last night to highlight the impacts of climate change. Yeah, 14 hours of climate change talk — or as Al Gore calls that, “a first date.”
— Jimmy Fallon

President Obama’s wife Michelle has highlighted her hair. She has blond highlights in her hair. And those will probably be the only highlights of his second term.
Yesterday Washington had a big power outage. And I thought: Well, wait a minute, I think the Obama administration has been without power the entire second term.
