Per usual, the non-FOX stations are hammering Donald Trump for his speech and comments from yesterday. Trump even went so far as to ban the Washington Post from his events, after they made up their own theory about what he said about the President.
And others have a beef about him immediately criticizing his political opponents in the aftermath of the Orlando murders.
But there is this: Immediately after, the President and Hillary would not cite Islamofacism, or any other “sect” of Muslims for blame. That’s awfully curious.
And then, note that Trump laid out a plan.
You may not like his plan. That’s fine.
But then come up with your own plan.
Because A plan beats NO plan, every time.
Which plays into what the American public has been hearing for many, many years now. They want a SOMETHING. And instead we hear about how it is America’s fault — or specifically conservative Republicans’ fault — that this guy killed 50 people.
But you hear no plan from the Dems.
Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer put it this way to Politico:
“I would ask the president for a strategy,” added Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), who struggled to conceal an eye roll when asked about Trump’s comments. “We’ve never seen one from (Obama) and I don’t know how you expect to go forward with any kind of plans to complete a mission unless you have guidance from a commander-in-chief.”
What’s their party animal?
Back in the regular political realm, some Nebraska reporters were able to catch up to Nebraska’s other Senator, Ben Sasse, in the airport before he was catching the plane to DC.
Tom Becka tweeted this about the encounter:

It probably isn’t worth reading much into that. Bu then again, these are the times we are living in…
And here was a random one that is making the rounds of the capitol in Lincoln.
Governor Pete Ricketts seems pretty sure that he is going to get primaried by former Governor Dave Heineman in 2018. As we noted here last week, he has even been in the field polling about favorability between the two.
But this is a new one:
In order to shore up his agriculture bona fides in the 3rd District, Ricketts would — the rumor goes — dump current Lieutenant Governor Mike Foley, and instead install…State Senator John Kuehn.
But hey, this is 1000% rumor running around from lobbyist to staffer to politicos of every type on a hot summer day, while the chamber is empty.
But with every rumor there is usually a nugget or two of truth.
There are chuckles coming from every which direction on this as well.

Because THAT is how you stay updated on the talk of Nebraska politics!
