So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Saturday, May 7, 2016.

Dr. Ben Carson implied that it was a very likely possibility that Donald Trump would consider choosing a Democrat to be his selection for Vice President. Soon after though, Mr. Trump ruled out that possibility.

Donald Trump told the media earlier this week that he would name Rudy Giuliani as his Secretary of Homeland Security.

Mr. Trump also offered his first pivot as the presumptive nominee when he signaled that he would definitely consider raising the minimum wage.
“I’m actually looking at that because I am very different from most Republicans,” Trump said. “You have to have something that you can live on but what I’m really looking to do is to get people great jobs so they make money more than that, they make more money than the $15 minimum wage.”

The influential and famous Republican strategist, Mary Matalin, has left the Republican Party for the Libertarian Party.

NOW President Terry O’Neill published an editorial this past week, in which she argued that babies wouldn’t die so much if we’d just kill them before they actually died. Seriously.

The FBI now has enough information to indict Hillary Clinton over the Benghazi scandal.

South Florida’s Republican delegation to Congress is having a very difficult time coming to terms with the reality of Donald Trump’s coming presidential nomination. Part of the reason is these numbers from the latest CNN poll that show Mr. Trump is deeply unpopular, particularly among Latino voters.

Some mind-boggling numbers from Indiana’s GOP Primary.
