Trump Sends US Troops to Install Razor Wire on Mexico Border: As a purported defense against Central American migrants, President Trump has dispatched US troops to the US-Mexican border who have started erecting fences and laying out very sharp razor wire, an action which many are dismissing as a cruel “political stunt” on the eve of midterm elections. OK, but in his defense, President Trump knows those migrants have been traveling on a long, hard journey and perhaps the “razor” wire is because he knows many of them will need a shave when they finally arrive.
Republican Candidate’s Children Warn Against Voting for Him: While enormously popular in his district, Republican candidate Steve West - who has, in the past, stated be believes “Hitler was right” and who doesn’t believe Jews, gays and people of color deserve even basic civil rights - now has his own family, including his children - warning voters in Missouri against electing their “fanatic” father to the state assembly.

Good grief, sounds like all this “draining the swamp” the Trump’s are doing for us can get quite expensive.
