Insult: The Donald has done it again. Donald Trump took a swipe at fellow GOP candidate Carly Fiorina’s looks in a Rolling Stone cover article that came out yesterday. Trump was watching a newscast when a video clip zoomed in on her. Trump exclaimed to writer Paul Solotaroff, “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president.” Trump added that he wasn’t supposed to say bad things about a woman, “but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?” So what will be the fallout from this latest Trump gaffe? Judging by what’s happened to him so far in this campaign, probably nothing but a bump in the polls.
Rally: The Iran nuke deal is a done deal. That hasn’t stopped conservative forces from rallying against it, which they literally did yesterday. A who’s-who roster of conservative stars and candidates — Donald Trump! Sarah Palin! Ted Cruz! Phil Robertson from “Duck Dynasty!” — headlined the rally, which bashed the Iran deal and the Republican establishment. GOP plans to fight the deal in Congress hit another snag yesterday, when debate on the resolution that would block the deal was held up by a revolt of conservative House members, who want the White House to hand over more details about the agreement.
Unhappy: The Russians are in Syria, and the U.S. isn’t happy about it.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry confirmed the buildup of troops, but insisted they were only there to teach Syrian troops how to use Russian military hardware. So why are the Russians really there? Probably to attack moderate Syrian rebels, who are supported by the U.S.
