Politics
So Trump is off the golf course now, where he spent the morning working off some of the rage that fueled his bizarre weekend of garbled tweets. But not all of that anger was left on the green. You can see he came off the links still stewing about Russia, Russia, Russia.   xObama was President up to, and beyond, the 2016 Election.

Jacob Zuma resigns as South Africa’s President, mired in corruption scandal

Breaking News
Jacob Zuma has quit as President of South Africa, finally succumbing to a slew of corruption scandals that have drained support from his ruling African National Congress party. “No life should be lost in my name and also the ANC should never be divided in my name,” he said during a nationally televised political address Wednesday. “I have therefore come to the decision to resign as President of the republic with immediate effect.” The announcement came after the ANC took the extraordinary step of calling for a no-confidence vote in the leader on Wednesday, a day after it publicly demanded his resignation.
