The Warriors’ have hit the injury bug, and maybe it doesn’t even matter.

The Golden State Warriors have been whacked with a plague of injuries no team in the NBA Finals has any business overcoming. But the dynasty made its most miraculous stand yet, erasing the Toronto Raptors’ homecourt advantage with a 109-104 win on the road to tie the series at one.

Before the season began, a swarm of injuries looked like the only way anyone could knock off the five-All Star, back-to-back championship-winning Warriors. Maybe that’s not even enough. Game 2 of the Finals proved even with two key players working through injuries, one sitting out entirely, two more leaving the game early, and a sixth battling dehydration from the opening tip, the Warriors are never out.

Heading into Sunday night’s game, Golden State knew it’d be without one of its stars, Kevin Durant, who suffered a calf strain in Game 4 of the conference semifinals. They knew DeMarcus Cousins, who left in the second game of the entire playoffs with a torn quad, wouldn’t be his full self in just his second game back. Same goes for Andre Iguodala, who re-injured his hamstring in Game 1 of the Finals. That alone would make a road game against Kawhi Leonard’s Raptors difficult.

What they didn’t know is that Kevon Looney would sprain his collarbone in the first quarter and not return, Klay Thompson would injure his hamstring in the beginning of the fourth quarter and not return, and Stephen Curry would battle through an unidentified illness all game.

How many curveballs can this dynasty withstand? At least six, apparently.

Curry, through frequent check-ins with the team’s doctor, came and went in spurts, but finished with 23 points on 17 shots. Cousins, despite a slow start in his second game in more than a month, had 11 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. Thompson was great until he left with the injury, scoring 25,. Draymond Green nearly got a second straight triple-double, with 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. In the fourth quarter, it was Quinn Cook who stepped up with nine points in Thompson’s absence, including back-to-back triples in 28 seconds.

The Warriors playing out their doomsday scenario to victory made them feel as inevitable as ever. Each Cook-made three — let alone each Andrew Bogut lob dunk — was an insult to a really well-constructed Toronto roster, and every crafty Cousins pass on a gimpy leg was exhausting.

There was little controversy when Golden State put its remaining money into a then-injured Cousins instead of flushing out its bench because a situation as damning as this one wasn’t conscionable. Management put its faith into the team remaining healthy enough, knowing even if not, starpower would prevail. Turns out even the Warriors worst nightmares can be conquered.

Still, the series is a best 3-out-of-5 now. The status of the Warriors’ fresh injuries are unknown, as well as the return of Durant. Thompson says he “doesn’t see himself missing Game 3,” per Yahoo’s Chris Haynes. But, as Steve Kerr said, “Klay said he’ll be fine. But Klay can be half dead and he’ll say he’s fine.” His absence on top of a still-delayed Durant return would leave very few shot-creators left on the floor for Golden State in Game 3, where homecourt can be lost all over again.

The Warriors nearly choked their lead away late in Game 2 without those two, going scoreless for five minute and 32 seconds until Andre Iguodala’s dagger three with seven seconds to play. What does this team look like without them for an entire 48?

Until health statuses are confirmed, Warriors fans can only rejoice after a heckuva battle. The Warriors were never supposed to be tested like this.

Liverpool’s 2-0 win against Tottenham might not have been a game for the ages, but the Reds can afford to be a little dull sometimes

Was it the greatest European Cup final of all time? No. But did it, of all the showpiece finals of the biggest competition of them all, have the shortest time between “Right, we’re off” and “Wait, what?” Very possibly. So, thanks to Sadio Mane and Moussa Sissoko for that.

That penalty had two effects. The first was to create a million and one conversations about whether it was right or wrong; conversations that all, inevitably, foundered on the fact that nobody really understands the handball rule and in any case it doesn’t make sense. You might think you do, but you are wrong.

It is, like the true name of God or the largest number in the world, unknowable. All we can do is guess, with heart and head, and hope to be right more often than not.

That said, without getting into the rights and wrongs of the penalty decision, it’s probably worth noting that the “unnatural position” angle does lead to some very strange places. Pointing, for example, is a thing civilians do quite often and footballers do constantly. But it becomes an unnatural thing to be doing when, and only when, a ball is kicked towards the arm.

The second effect — and probably the more important in the grand scheme of things — was that the favourites for the game had the lead in the second minute.

Maybe it was this that did it: that made it into one of those games. Where the early stages last all the way through to the final whistle; where the scene is set but largely unused. Where you wait and you wait and you wait for the game that you wanted. No! The game that you were promised. By the semi-finals and by the occasion. By Gazprom and by heavy metal football. By your own sense of entitlement, dammit. It’s the Champions League final! It’s been a long old season! You deserve two hours of high-octane nonsense.

And then it was over, and it never was.

There are lots of football matches like this. Not all are as big or as important, but it’s a familiar feeling: the whole mysteriously less than the sum of its parts. For something that arouses so much passion, so much commitment, so much feeling in those that follow it, the actual granular stuff of the game can often underwhelm.

At times this can seem like a design flaw, and every now and then the people in charge tweak things in search of a little more entertainment. No backpasses! Golden goals! Wait, that didn’t work. This is terrible. No golden goals!

And flat games can feel awful, if you’re unlucky enough to be invested. Perhaps the worst feeling in football, as a fan, is not the ringing shock that follows we’ve been hammered, but the flat blank nothing of we … we didn’t even turn up. Perhaps that is the real shame, for Spurs: not that they lost, and certainly not that the game was boring, but that the game for so long didn’t seem to contain very much of Tottenham.

In any case, it made for an odd experience: a grand occasion wrapped around a grind of a game. Maybe it was that early lead. Maybe it was the heat, or the three-week break. Or perhaps the obvious lack of fitness of both Roberto Firmino and Harry Kane, so often tone-setter and focal point respectively.

But for the winners, the lack of spectacle works, in an odd sort of way, to refocus the victory onto the team more generally. Where there’s not much game to talk about, it’s the broader sweeps of story that come out. You don’t have to like Liverpool to acknowledge that this trophy is the result of a masterclass in building a big football team and rekindling a big football club.

Liverpool will always be big, of course, but big doesn’t always mean good. Sometimes big teams are Godzilla, sometimes they’re an elephant that’s been at the fermented fruit. We’re not ten years distant from the sacking of Rafa Benitez and the appointment of Roy Hodgson, a moment that was, by the standards of any big club, deeply and hilariously dysfunctional. Fast forward and: record-breaking league season, Champions League trophy, and no obvious reason why things might get immediately worse.

There’s no point pretending that this is some kind of scrappy underdog story, not when the most expensive defender in the history of the game steals the man of the match award from the most expensive goalkeeper. But it’s certainly a story of extreme competence. Owners finding the right manager, scouts finding the right players, coaching making them better. And, as a result, everybody interested in the club having a seriously good time.

We watch the misnamed Champions League for the chaos and delirium of knockout football. But in an odd way, this felt like a league game: a team at the end of a long season, securing their trophy with a tired but tidy performance that never got any messier than it needed to be.

And there’s the difference. Benitez, years ago, needed a barely believable comeback to scrap through to a penalty shootout. Jurgen Klopp, here, needed an early penalty, and that was more or less that. Flawed teams often need to be interesting. Strong ones, serious ones, structurally sound ones … they can afford the flex of being a little dull.

Mugger Trump – 11:25 AM 5/28/2019 – Post

Mugger Trump:

#MAGGATrump, #MuggerTrumpf (in #plainEnglish): #MakeGermanyGreatAgain! #Serve your #NewAbwehr #masters, you #TrumpPoodleDog!

Trump The Poodle Dog Serves the New Abwehr and the German Intelligence for his Four Billion Dollars Trump Brand Value Loan from the Deutsche Bank

This Loan was likely sold to the Sberbank and VTB

which means that it was sold to the deal’s guarantors: 
Russian-Jewish-Israeli Mob-Oligarchs – TOC

who now possibly own that $4B Contract on his life, just in case. 
The US Presidency is the best personal and bankruptcy protection for Donald Trump, and it is also viewed by him as the way out of his personal financial problems. 

Look more like a Dignified Pre-Dictator, Trump! 

Trump The Grandpa was exiled to America for some unclear yet reasons, faults, or transgressions; and assigned to manage a whorehouse for Abwehr, named The Trump’s Poodle Dig Saloon.

And now the  third generation Trump became The Great American Mugger for the New Abwehr and Germany and their agent, installed as the American President, with a little help from Manafort, Cambridge Analytica, WikiLeaks, Putin, and other New Abwehr agents. 

Trump is the Poodle Dog of Deutsche Bank and German Intelligence

So, serve well, Trump The Poodle Dog! 
Serve Putin! 
Serve Russian Jewish Mafia! 
Serve (very likely the Abwehr’s idea, creation, brainchild, and pet project, with all my Love to it) Israel!
Serve your main masters: the German Intelligence and the New Abwehr!
Serve Japan!
Do the Gerhard Schroeder’s bidding and work on reuinification of Korea! The Great Investment Opportunity!
That’s what you were hired for!

Cancel the sanctions on Oligarchs and Russian Banks!
Deripaska had already got his sweet deal and recouped his Trump installation investment. 

Earn your keep!
Jump higher!
Bark louder!
Play  tougher!

You are the New Abwehr Agent yourself now, straight fromyour Nazi Daddy’s Hutlerjugend!

MAGGA Trump, Mugger Trumpf (in plain English): Make Germany Great Again! Serve your New Abwehr masters, you Trump Poodle Dog!

Kawasaki stabbing rampage leaves three dead, including schoolgirl and suspect; 17 injured

1 Share
KAWASAKI – An 11-year-old girl and a 39-year-old man died in a mass stabbing in Kawasaki on Tuesday morning, a rampage that injured an additional 17 people — including 15 elementary school girls and a boy — and saw the attacker turn the knife on himself, police said.
Investigative sources said they had detained a suspect after the rampage, a man in his 50s, who later died of a self-inflicted stab wound to the neck area, they said.
The man was identified as Ryuichi Iwasaki, 51, of Kawasaki’s Aso Ward.
Police identified the victims as Hanako Kuribayashi, 11, a sixth grader from Tama, Tokyo, and Satoshi Oyama, a 39-year-old Foreign Ministry official.
They both suffered deep stab wounds to the neck.
Oyama was the father of a child who was among the children at the scene. His child was not injured. Oyama was also stabbed in the back and shoulders, suggesting he might have been defending some of the children, police sources said.
Kanagawa Prefectural Police officials said many of the victims, who were waiting at a school bus stop in Tama Ward about 250 meters northwest of Noborito Station, are students from Caritas Elementary School, a private Catholic school in the same ward.
They said the suspect, who was wearing glasses, a black shirt and pants, slowly approached the girls and attacked them with knives in both hands.
He assaulted the victims one by one. According to witnesses, some children screamed : “Help me!” and “Dad and Mom, what should I do?”
Authorities said they found two knives at the site that appeared to have been used in the attack. The blades measured 30 cm each, according to police sources.
Police said two more knives were found in what appears to be the suspect’s backpack.
“I heard children scream ‘I’m scared’ and then turned to see a man with knives shouting, ‘I’m gonna kill you,’” said Toshichika Ishii, 57, who was at a park near the site, adding that he saw children falling to the ground.
Police quoted a bus driver who witnessed the assault as saying, “I tried to stop him, but he started stabbing children and others.”
“He then moved dozens of meters away and stabbed his own neck,” the driver said.
Kazuhiro Yoshida, a 60-year-old bus driver for the elementary school, said he got off his bus when he arrived near the scene and saw “pools of blood.”
“A man in dark clothing was lying on the ground and did not move a bit,” Yoshida said.
Many of the victims sustained wounds to the neck, and they may also develop post-traumatic stress disorder, according to hospitals treating them.
A woman in her 40s who lives near the scene said she saw a rescue worker conducting CPR on a girl and “blood flowing from a man in a suit crouching on the ground and forming a pool.”
The scene and its vicinity were cordoned off as investigators collected evidence.
“I heard fire engines coming in the morning and I saw a man lying on the ground bleeding,” a man who lives nearby told public broadcaster NHK. “I saw many elementary school children lying on the ground near a school bus stop. School rucksacks were scattered all over the place.
“There was another man lying on the ground bleeding at a municipal-run bus stop near the school’s bus stop,” the man added.
A local resident, who declined to give his name, said children attending the school lined up for the bus at the site every day.
“If you live in this neighborhood, everybody knows that these kids are there,” the 66-year-old said. “I’ve been in this area for a long time, I cannot believe that somebody targeted this bus and targeted these small children.”
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that “children’s safety should be protected at any cost.”
Education minister Masahiko Shibayama said at a news conference Tuesday that Abe instructed him to make every possible effort to secure safety at schools and school commuting roads.
Parents arrived at the Catholic private school later in the day to pick their children up as the school and the local education board scrambled to gather information on the attack.
“I heard from the school that my daughter was inside the bus (when the attack took place). I heard she’s fine but I have not been able to meet her yet,” said a father of a first grader.
The rampage was a rare attack in a country with one of the lowest rates of violent crime in the developed world. There was no immediate detail on the motive of the suspect.
Schools in Japan have stepped up safety measures ever since a knife-wielding man, who sought to be sentenced to death, entered an elementary school in Ikeda, Osaka Prefecture, and killed eight students and wounded 15 others in 2001.
Many schools lock their gates once classes start and security cameras have been introduced. Volunteers and members of parent teacher associations also line the routes leading to schools. But such measures are limited.
“Even if we thoroughly implemented the plan (for preventing crimes), it is difficult to totally prevent them,” said a senior education ministry official.
U.S. President Donald Trump, who was wrapping up a state visit to Japan, offered his “prayers and sympathy” to the victims as he met troops outside Tokyo on the final day of his trip.
Standing aboard a Japanese military ship, he said that “all Americans stand with the people of Japan and grieve for the victims and for their families.”

Kaiser MAGGA Trump – Comment to J. Comey’s op-ed in WP – 6:55 AM 5/29/2019

Kaiser MAGGA Trump

Comment to J. Comey’s op-ed in WP

I think that Comey is correct. It looks like Trump is engaged in (possibly deliberate) hostile, anti-English Speaking Alliance (see his recent anti-UK & anti-Australia remarks about the subjects of “Barr Investigation”, with the Ukraine thrown in, for the good deceptive measure), PROPAGANDA; with overtly and/or covertly expressed “pro-Axis”: pro-Germany and pro-Japan sentiments, and also some pro-Nazi racial hints, from his symbolic perspectives of the USS WASP, and other dubious optics of his Memorial Day 2019 Japan visit. I think humbly, realizing all the seriousness of this statement, that Mr. Trump might be the “unwitting” or “witting” (this has to be determined) agent or asset of the New Abwehr and German Intelligence, which also corresponds, “rhymes well” with his personal, family history and background; and also, of course, with his “special relationship” with the Deutsche Bank. All these assertions and suspicions have to be investigated very thoroughly. 
The Russian subversive activity was and is present undoubtedly, as was stated and demonstrated in Mueller Investigations, but it should be viewed and understood in conjunction and in the light of  the not so new, and renewed German-Russian Intelligence and Security Partnership Alliance, so to speak.
The main suspects for the roles of masterminds-culprits, in my humble opinion, appear to be the New Abwehr, German Intelligence, and their high agents: Gerhard Schroeder, Ernst Uhrlau, SPD, Putin, and many, many others; visible and invisible, known and unknown.
If we as the Society and Civilization, do not look into this hypothesis and do not investigate and research it properly, we will commit one of the gravest errors.

James Comey calls Clinton ‘dirt’ tipster Joseph Mifsud a ‘Russian agent’

1 Share
Former FBI Director James Comey made a bold assertion about the Hillary Clinton “dirt” tipster’s ties to Russia that goes further than what special counsel Robert Mueller said in his report about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
In an op-ed on Tuesday, Comey referred to Joseph Mifsud as an “agent” of Russia.
“In April 2016, that adviser talked to a Russian agent in London, learned that the Russians had obtained ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails and that the Russians could assist the Trump campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to Clinton,” Comey wrote in the Washington Post.
Comey did not name Mifsud, but Mifsud is known as a London-based professor and former Maltese diplomat who has long been suspected of deep ties to Russian intelligence. The original counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s campaign began in July 2016 after Papadopoulos repeated what he heard from Mifsud to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, who informed the U.S. government.
Mueller repeatedly mentions Mifsud in his 448-page report, released last month with redactions, but does not call Mifsud an agent of Russia. The special counsel does say that Mifsud has “connections to Russia” and noted that he “traveled to Moscow in April 2016” and “met with high-level Russian government officials” while he was there before telling Papadopoulos in London about the Clinton “dirt.”
Mueller wrote that “Mifsud maintained various Russian contacts while living in London,” “offered to introduce Papadopoulos to European leaders and others with contacts to the Russian government,” and worked with two Russian nationals, including Russian International Affairs Council member Ivan Timofeev, to arrange a meeting between the Trump campaign and the Russian government that never came to pass.
Mifsud has been an elusive figure who has stayed out of the spotlight over the course of the 22-month Russia investigation, which found no criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, but in recent weeks he has been subject to renewed scrutiny by GOP investigators who believe he may be tied to Western intelligence.
Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, says Mifsud likely has links to “U.S., British, and Italian intelligence services” and accused Mueller’s team of deciding to “cherry-pick” information from news reports to portray him as a Russian agent, leaving out that he was described as a Western intelligence asset.
In anticipation of Trump’s trip to the United Kingdom next month, Nunes provided a list of questions to ask Prime Minister Theresa May, which touches on Mifsud. “Describe any communications or relationship, if any, Joseph Mifsud (potentially also known as Joseph di Gabriele) has had with British intelligence and any information the British government possesses about Mifsud’s connection to any other government or intelligence agency,” Nunes wrote to Trump last week.
Nunes also said the FBI has “something to hide” after sending two letters to the Central Intelligence Agency, the FBI, the National Security Agency, and the State Department asking for all documents they have on Mifsud, and all but the bureau cooperated.

4.10.19 – Remarks by President Trump Before Marine One Departure

1 Share
South Lawn
9:28 A.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT:  The economy is doing very, very well.  We have numbers coming from companies that are beyond expectation.  The tax cuts are working very, very well.  So we’re very proud of the economy.  Job numbers are as good as we’ve ever had, and more people are working right now than ever worked in our country before.  We’re doing really well.
I’d like to congratulate Bibi Netanyahu.  It looks like that race has been won by him.  It may be a little early, but I’m hearing he’s won it and won it in good fashion.  So, he’s been a great ally and he’s a friend.  I’d like to congratulate him.  That was a well fought-out race, I can tell you.  But it looks like Bibi has won that race.
Go ahead, Steve.
Q    Are you going to release the Middle East Peace Plan now?
THE PRESIDENT:  Say it?
Q    Are you going to release the Middle East Peace Plan now?
THE PRESIDENT:  So, the fact that Bibi won, I think we’ll see some pretty good action in terms of peace.  Look, everyone said — and I never made it a promise — but everybody said you can’t have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians.  I think we have a chance.  And I think we have, now, a better chance with Bibi having won.
Yes, please.  Major.
Q    Mr. President, have you been briefed on the —
THE PRESIDENT:  Hold it.  Major.
Q    Do you believe (inaudible) law requires you to give Congress your tax returns?
THE PRESIDENT:  No, there is no law.  As you know, I got elected last time with this same issue.  And while I’m under audit, I won’t do it.  If I’m not under audit, I would do it.  I had no problem with it.  But while I’m under audit, I would not give my taxes.  There’s no law whatsoever.
Now, I will say this: I would love to give them, but I’m not going to do it while I’m under audit.  It’s very simple.  Remember, I got elected last time — the same exact issue, with same intensity, which wasn’t very much because, frankly, the people don’t care.
What I have done is approximately a 104-page summary — and, really, in great detail — of assets and values.  And nobody wants to go over that because it’s so good.  I built a great company, one of the best companies.  I have some of the greatest assets in the world.  I did a good job.  And now, frankly, I don’t care about them; I only care about the United States.
But I have no obligation to do that while I’m under audit.  And no lawyer would tell you to release your tax returns while you’re under audit.
Q    Do you want to see a binary choice for asylum seekers?
THE PRESIDENT:  I think that the whole asylum rules, laws, and regulations have been taken advantage of by people that are very bad people, in many cases.  These are the people running the cartels.  They’re gaming the system; they have been for years.  The only difference is our economy is now so strong that more people come up.
We have done a great job at the border with bad laws.  It’s very important that the Democrats in Congress change these loopholes.  If they don’t change them, we’re just going to be fighting.
Now, the other thing: We’ve built a lot of wall.  A lot of wall.  And it’s new wall.  You know, when we rip down an old wall and then replace it, it’s called a “new wall.”  And that’s what we’ve done.  A lot of wall is going up.  And every place we build the wall, it’s less and less.
But the power of the economy, it’s like a magnet; it’s bringing more people than we’ve seen in a long time.
Major.
Q    Mr. President, what is your current thinking on releasing as much of the Mueller Report as possible?  The Attorney General yesterday said (inaudible).  Do you agree with that?
THE PRESIDENT:  Well, the Mueller Report is interesting.  After $35 million, with 13 — increased to 18 — angry Democrats — people that truly hated Donald Trump, truly hated Trump — they found no collusion whatsoever with Russia.  But I could have told you that and so could most people.  And so could have everybody that voted for me, which was a lot of people.
So after wasting all of this money and all of this time with people that were haters — people that worked on the Hillary Clinton Foundation, people that were absolutely haters of Trump — they found no collusion.
What has been found during this period of time are the illegal acts of getting this whole phony investigation started.  And hopefully that’s where people are going now.  That’s where people are going.
And it’s very interesting.  It was an illegal investigation.  Major, it was an illegal investigation.  It was started illegally.  Everything about it was crooked — every single thing about it.  There were dirty cops.  These were bad people.  If you look at McCabe and Comey, and you look at Lisa and Peter Strzok, these were bad people.
And this was a — an attempted coup.  This was an attempted takedown of a President.  And we beat them.  We beat them.
So the Mueller Report, when they talk about obstruction, we fight back.  And do you know why we fight back?  Because I knew how illegal this whole thing was.  It was a scam.  And what I’m most interested in —
Q    (Inaudible.)
THE PRESIDENT:  Excuse me.  What I’m most interested in is getting started.
Hopefully, the Attorney General — he mentioned it yesterday — he’s doing a great job — getting started on going back to the origins of exactly where this all started, because this was an illegal witch hunt and everybody knew it, and they knew it too.  And they got caught.
And what they did was treason.  What they did was terrible.  What they did was against our Constitution and everything we stand for.
So hopefully that will happen.  There is a hunger for that to happen in this country like I have never seen before, including all of the millions of people that voted for me.
What they did was disgraceful.  There’s never been anything like it in the history of our country.
Q    Mr. President, Senate Republicans have concerns about Herman Cain.  Is his nomination safe?
THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I like Herman Cain.  And Herman will make that determination.  Herman is a wonderful man.  He’s been a supporter of mine for a long time.  He actually ran a very good campaign.  And that’s up to Herman.
Herman is — you know, he’s already sat on one the Fed boards, and he’s just somebody I like a lot.  As to how he’s doing in the process, that I don’t know.  You go through a process.  But Herman is a great guy, and I hope he does well.
Q    Mr. President, since Stephen Miller is already, basically, running your Homeland Security apparatus, have you ever thought about making Stephen Miller the DHS Secretary?
THE PRESIDENT:  No, Stephen is an excellent guy.  He’s a wonderful person.  People don’t know him.  He’s a wonderful — been with me from the beginning.  He’s a brilliant man.  And, frankly, there’s only one person that’s running it.  You know who that is?  It’s me.
Q    Mr. President, has anyone in this White House been briefed on the Mueller report, or have you seen it?
THE PRESIDENT:  I have not seen the Mueller report.  I have not read the Mueller report.  I won.  No collusion.  No obstruction.  I won.  Everybody knows I won.  And the pros knew it was illegally started.  The whole thing was illegal.
I have not read the Mueller report.  I haven’t seen the Mueller report.  As far as I’m concerned, I don’t care about the Mueller report.  I’ve been totally exonerated.  No collusion.  No obstruction.
And I’m off to dealing with China.  I’m off to dealing with North Korea.  I’m off to dealing with Venezuela and all the problems in this world.  I’m not worrying about something that never, ever should’ve taken place.
Q    Did you see what happened to Candace Owens yesterday?
THE PRESIDENT:  I did not see what happened.  I did not see what happened to Candace Owens.
Q    (Inaudible.)
THE PRESIDENT:  Excuse me.  I did not see what happened to Candace Owens.
Q    Congressman Ted Lieu played a little snip of audio and accused her of being a Hitler supporter, and then she slapped back at him.
THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I think that’s a terrible thing.  I think that’s a terrible thing that he would do that.  I find her to be a very — I know her.  I think she’s a fine person, a fine young woman, and I think that’s disgraceful that they could say that.
Q    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Southern District has spoken to Hope Hicks, Keith Schiller, and others in their investigations.  Any response to that?
THE PRESIDENT:  I don’t hear you.
Q    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Southern District has spoken to Keith Schiller, Hope Hicks —
THE PRESIDENT:  I have no idea.
Q    Mr. President, what are your thoughts on Kris Kobach for DHS?  Is he a leading contender for you?
THE PRESIDENT:  I respect him.  I like him.  And he’s somebody that, you know, I have a lot of regard for.
Q    SDNY, Mr. President — SDNY (inaudible) into your finances up in New York.  Are you concerned about that investigation?
THE PRESIDENT:  My finances are very clean.  I don’t think there is an investigation.  If you say it, I don’t know.  But I don’t think there is an investigation.  My finances are very clean.
Q    Mr. President, will Kevin be your nominee for DHS Secretary permanently?
THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I like him a lot.  He’s doing a very good job.  It could happen.  We’ll make a determination.
Q    Are you looking at others like Rick Perry or Matt Whitaker?
THE PRESIDENT:  We have others, but right now he’s the man.  He’s doing a great job.
Q    Kevin?
THE PRESIDENT:   Kevin.
Thank you.  See you in Texas.
