Kind of funny how Sarah Palin endorses Trump and he almost immediately starts quitting stuff.

You know who uses brinksmanship as a negotiating tactic? Building trades unions. And builders. https://t.co/AkiZ3AIBov

But on the positive side, according to Buzzfeed, “Trump’s Effect On The Latino Vote Has Begun: More Hispanic U.S. Citizens Are Coming”:
Near the Las Vegas strip, five women who share a number of qualities sat down for an interview.
The women are all Latina. They’re foreign-born. They’re members of the 53,000-strong Culinary Workers Union Local 226. They work as housekeepers (four of them at Donald Trump’s Las Vegas hotel).
And they’re all in the process of becoming naturalized U.S. citizens.
These women are just five of what labor and immigration activists say are a few of the thousands of Latinos they hope to help naturalize, in pivotal swing states like Nevada, Florida, and Colorado. The reason, they say? Trump made them do it…
If Trump has tapped into disaffected voters this year with his immigration rhetoric, there is also an unintended consequence — a mix of naturalization efforts, voter registration efforts, and ultimately efforts to mobilize voters off Trump’s rhetoric.
In the last 14 years, the local Culinary Union’s umbrella union, Unite Here, has helped push for 15,000 naturalizations. This year, Unite Here wants to help 2,500 people naturalize by June 1, so they can become U.S. citizens before the election — in addition to registering 10,000 new voters…
Concerning the other big overnight breaking news, here’s the latest from local news, the Oregonian:
BURNS – Law enforcement officers set up roadblocks Tuesday night around the headquarters of the occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge hours after one of the takeover’s top spokesmen was killed and other leaders were arrested on a highway out of town.
FBI officials told those still at the compound, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, that they were free to leave and should do so. By midnight, few people appeared to have taken up the offer and the lights were still on.
Authorities provided no information about the roadblocks, but have scheduled a news conference for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in Burns.…
That would be 1:30pm EST. I’m sure other front-pagers will be updating as more news emerges.
I’ve been following Oregonian reporter Les Zaitz and JJMacNabb on Twitter (you don’t need an account to read people’s public twitter feeds).
Apart from bad craziness, amusing and otherwise, what’s on the agenda for the day?
