Kudlow clearly got sick from swallowing so much Trump bullshit.

He was never much of an analyst, but he sold his soul when he came to work at the White House.

Pfft. He was a coke addict and alcoholic when he was at Bear Stearns. He sold his soul a long time ago. The arc of justice and all that.

Hubris (and coke addictions) have their price. I'm sorry for his family, I wish them peace, but he deserves a reckoning.

How ironic that a member of the most heartless administration in history has a heart attack. Conscience?

John Lewis released from hospital
Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) was released from the hospital on Sunday with a "clean bill of health," according to a statement from his chief of staff.

"Rep. John Lewis has been released from the hospital this evening," Lewis wrote in the statement. "All tests have been completed, and doctors have given him a 'clean bill of health.'"

Lewis was hospitalized for undisclosed reasons on Saturday evening after falling ill on a flight to Atlanta, Ga., according to multiple reports.

"He thanks everyone who shared their thoughts, prayers and concerns during his stay," Lewis added.
...................
Reports from Lewis's office earlier on Sunday said he was "resting very comfortably."

Washington (CNN) - Sen. John McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year, has made the decision to discontinue medical treatment, his family said in a statement on Friday.

Palliative Care Is Still Medical Treatment
John McCain isn’t stopping treatment; he’s changing his goal toward dying comfortably.


On Friday, John McCain’s office announced that the longtime Arizona senator has chosen to “discontinue medical treatment” over a year after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Knowing what we know about glioblastoma, the cancer from which McCain suffers, this is an inevitable development. It was only a matter of when. I admire McCain’s decision to share his choice with the public.

I also feel obligated to note that the idea that McCain is no longer receiving medical treatment is simply incorrect. I realize that the statement was likely drafted with the intent of being incredibly direct, and I appreciate that impulse. But what he has announced is what we in medicine call a change in his “goals of care,” and I think it’s worthwhile to make that distinction clear.

Here is what it means to change your goal of care: It means that instead of continuing with treatments designed to cure or prolong life, you transition to care has designed only to alleviate suffering, meaning palliative care and hospice care. These medical disciplines are every bit as important and “aggressive” as curative care, and in cases like McCain’s, they are actually more important. Unfortunately, many patients conflate accepting palliative care with “giving up,” when in fact, it is no different than any other kind of medicine. Palliative and hospice care are not a discontinuation of medical treatments, but rather an escalation of treatments focused on the actual problems at hand—the extremely difficult tasks of being terminally ill and of dying—even if we wish the salient problems were different.

For patients with potentially terminal illnesses, the decision to change their goals from only curative to only palliative (nowadays, these goals can coexist, though that is not McCain’s situation) is a complex one. A person with a 10 percent chance of surviving 10 years may opt for aggressive treatments with the most curative potential if they are young and otherwise healthy, even if these treatments are physically difficult and painful. Meanwhile, your typical 90-year-old would likely be far better off maximizing the quality of the time they have left by forgoing the often miserable oncologic regimens that would prolong their suffering. Doing so would likely rob the remainder of their lives of dignity, frequently at the expense of the very joys that make life worth living to begin with. “Every day I spend here is a day I’m not with my family,” one cancer patient once told me. Of course, no two people are alike, and these differences perhaps become more apparent as we face some of the toughest choices life puts before us. And so some 90-year-olds may have different goals, with perfectly sound reasoning. I’ve met patients who know all too well how much suffering their chemotherapy will continue to inflict upon them, but they are willing to endure it if only so that they may live long enough to see a grandchild’s wedding, or a graduation. I know one person whose goals of care include to do “whatever it takes” to live long enough to see the current president removed from office. (After that, he says, he will accept whatever fate has in store.)

I am cranked that Orange Caesar hasn't said a kind word about McCain - who was, after all, his Party's previous standard bearer - even when launching a battleship and even when the impending death is reported. And this from someone who can squeeze out flattering words for Kim Jong Un.

This is petty to the point of pathological.

That's the perfect definition of Trump. He's a petty little man. Shoot, you know that some of the things he does has no basis in logic. He only does them because they're the opposite of what Obama did or would have done. Trump is a badly behaving 4th grader.
