This is pretty embarrassing for Donald Trump.
At the Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski hosted town hall,last night in South Carolina, Brezezinski read a quote about a candidate who:
“is considered a political outsider by all the pundits. He’s tapping into the anger of the voters. Delivers a populist message. He believes everyone in the country should have health care. He advocates for hedge fund managers to pay higher taxes. He’s drawing thousands of people at his rallies and bringing in a lot of new voters to the political process. And he’s not beholden to any Super PAC.
She then asked, “Who am I be describing?”
To everyone watching at home, the answer was obvious: Bernie Sanders (that was who she was talking about). Trump’s answer, however? “You’re describing Donald Trump.”
Apparently even The Donald can’t tell the difference between his own policies and Bernie Sanders.
You mean this look?
With a bonus facepalm in the background.

It’s called ThinkProgress for a reason. They see things we couldn’t even begin to understand. Things like this:
No, really. It’s science!
A study produced by the University of Minnesota concluded that race is a determining factor in who is most affected by air pollution. Specifically, non-white people breathe air that is substantially more polluted than the air that white people breathe.
According to Julian Marshall, who led the University’s research, race outweighed income in regards to who is most affected by poor air quality. When low-income white people were compared to high-income Hispanic people, the latter group experienced higher levels of nitrogen dioxide. Altogether, people of color in the U.S. breath air with 38 percent more nitrogen dioxide in it than their white counterparts, particularly due to power plants and exhaust from vehicles.
I'd like to revise my previous statement…
This is officially the dumbest thing I've read all year.

Dumb? Absolutely. But more importantly, it’s a gold mine for mockery:
But just in case it isn’t …
Sounds like a pretty good deal.
Quick! Is Harry Reid available for comment?
Anyone up for a brief musical interlude?
Hey … that’s true!

There are few things creepier than a run-down mental asylum. A run-down mental asylum in a shady part of a foreign country? Yeah, that’s definitely creepier.
Earlier this week, Reddit user twoeazy posted a few photos from his stay in a mental asylum in his home country of Russia. Twoeazy says he was sent there after an interview with a psychiatrist prior to his mandatory military service. Here’s how he tells it:
In Russia, we have compulsory recruitment. Every recruit must go through a course of doctors to check if he’s somehow ill. So, when I had an honest conversation with psychiatrist, he decided to send me to asylum for a whole month for a bunch of reasons.
Twoeazy said the asylum is broken up into three floors. The first floor is for people with severe mental health issues, the second and third floors were for people with milder conditions. If you were admitted to the third floor you were allowed to have a computer, cell phone, camera, and even musical instruments, he said.
Upon his admittance to the asylum twoeazy said he was initially sent to the second floor and slept in a hallway until space opened up on the third floor. Here is his bed in the hallway with a feline visitor.
Believe me, you don’t want to know what’s in this box.
Here are a couple of the paintings in one of the stairwells of the asylum.
According to twoeazy, no one could remember who painted these murals. He suspects that it was a patient.
This one is pretty amazing.
Another depressing hallway, this time during the day.
This is a picture of the bathroom during the day. It’s still nearly pitch black. This is why, said twoeazy, that they never turned off the light in there.
This is twoeazy’s roommate from the asylum. He said this picture was taken as his roommate announced that he was going out for a walk. Apparently he walked around the hospital for four hours after this was taken.
Staying in a mental ward must be a traumatic experience, no matter who you are. But if that asylum is in terrible condition? It’s even worse. I can’t believe what some people have to go through.

The latest news on Kaci Hickox, the nurse currently quarantined in New Jersey under new guidelines for those traveling to the United States after treating Ebola victims in Africa, will file a lawsuit challenging the legality of her confinement:
And as you might expect, there are strong opinions on both sides of the debate regarding this move:
And earlier on today, Ms. Hicox sent out pics of her “prison-like” accommodations as a guest of the state of New Jersey:
We must admit, New Jersey can have her in nicer digs than this, no?
But even before he lawyers can get a lawsuit filed, the White House is making noise that they are none too happy with the way Governors Cuomo and Christie acted on this quarantine without discussing it with the president or the CDC first:
And then there’s this news:
Uh-oh Governor Christie. Who knows what these two are getting ready to blame on you.

If you want to browse the Connect for Health Colorado insurance marketplace, you have to create an account to find out what’s in it. Having trouble setting up an account? Just download a not-so-handy PDF complaint form and upload it using your (nonexistent) C4HCO account!
Got it? Easy peasy.
Stymied? You can also submit your complaint via snail mail. You can also try calling. Good luck with that:
Apparently the Web techs behind the Colorado marketplace do know how to code an online form: If you dig around the site a bit, you’ll find a contact form for “general questions about the new health insurance marketplace.” But how many people hit the PDF complaint form and just give up?

We don’t mean to harp on Guantanamo Bay (so much), but there are certain promises you just don’t make. You don’t pledge tomaintain the temperature of the globe like it entails turning the thermostat up or down a notch, and you don’t promise to cure cancer. Nevertheless, in Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Obama likened curing cancer to landing a man on the moon.
Better yet, he put Vice President Joe Biden in charge of the effort.
Last year, Vice President Biden said that with a new moonshot, America can cure cancer. Last month, he worked with this Congress to give scientists at the National Institutes of Health the strongest resources theyve had in over a decade. Tonight, Im announcing a new national effort to get it done. And because hes gone to the mat for all of us, on so many issues over the past forty years, Im putting Joe in charge of Mission Control. For the loved ones weve all lost, for the family we can still save, lets make America the country that cures cancer once and for all.
