Here you all go. General News is back, and yes, that includes politics.

Remember to keep it civil, provide evidence for claims when challenged, and keep the focus of chats on facts and not the personalities of forum members or on partisanship. When in doubt, see our Forum Guidelines posted in the Announcements section.

Nice one Donald. But Kansas City was located in the state of Missouri the last time anyone looked.

Kansas City was my mother's hometown, the first few years of early childhood. If she were still alive, she would be very amused. There is a much smaller city, in Kansas next door, also called Kansas City, but it's not what Americans refer to when they say KC, nor has it ever been home to the Chiefs. In that area, people refer to the smaller Kansas City as KCK. I don't know if this tweet will tip the 2020 electoral votes in Missouri away from Trump, but it's a good start!

It's a great post!
It's like reading an anti-story, in the sense of experimental literature. We're tempted to go back and doubt every single word this man has ever uttered.

Axl Rose the lead singer of Guns 'N Roses who only rarely uses social media had an entertaining exchange with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

It was prompted in part by the gratuitous use of a Guns 'N Roses track 'Live & Let Die' during a Trump visit to a PPE mask factory, which was followed by an interview with Steven Mnuchin on FOX TV in which he uncritically urged listeners to start doing long road-trips around the USA again.

Stung by Axl Rose's description of him as an 'A**hole', Mnuchin retorted "What have you done for your country lately ?" and attached an emoji of what was meant to be the US flag. Unluckily Steven Mnuchin attached the emoji for the national flag of Liberia by mistake - (It looks very similar but has only one star instead of 50).
