Hillary Clinton Drops 2020 Hints to Howard Stern
This Day in History | 1945
Flight 19, a pair of Naval torpedo bombers take off from Ft. Lauderdale, FL for a routine training flight. Both planes, and the 27 crew members aboard disappear over the Bermuda Triangle, never to be found again.
Good Morning Middle Americans!
I’m normally the last person to give Hillary Clinton any credit. But there’s an exception to every rule. If you haven’t watched the former Secretary of State’s interview with Howard Stern yesterday you need to click on our link below. She was relaxed. Stern was awesome as always.
Speaking of First Ladies, Melania was not going to sit quietly and let one of the Democrat’s impeachment witnesses mention her son’s name during the impeachment hearings yesterday.
Remember George Zimmerman, well he’s now suing the parents of Trayvon Martin, the 17 year old he shot and killed. Zimmerman was cleared of any criminal wrong doing, but this lawsuit is sure to open some old wounds.
Finally the Trump administration is planning changes to the federal food stamp program that could effect 700,000 people.

Hillary Clinton Drops Biggest Hint Yet That She’s Mulling a 2020 Presidential Run
(New York Post) -The strongest indicator yet that Hillary’s mulling a 2020 run? She appeared Wednesday, for the first time ever, on Howard Stern.
There was hardly a pretense she was there to promote the book she co-wrote with daughter Chelsea, long ago a bestseller.
As those who listen to the show know, Stern publicly begged Hillary to appear during the 2016 campaign. After Donald Trump won, Stern said one guest shot could have moved the needle her way.

Nearly 700,000 Will Lose Food Stamps with USDA Work Requirement Change
(NBC News) – The Trump administration Wednesday formalized work requirements for recipients of food stamps, a move that will cause hundreds of thousands of people to lose access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Brandon Lipps, the deputy undersecretary for the USDA’s Food Nutrition and Consumer Services, spent about 18 minutes on a call with reporters outlining the changes to the rule that will take effect April 1.
“We’re taking action to reform our SNAP program in order to restore the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population and be respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program,” Perdue said. “Americans are generous people who believe it is their responsibility to help their fellow citizens when they encounter a difficult stretch. That’s the commitment behind SNAP, but, like other welfare programs, it was never intended to be a way of life.”
