Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear, doesn’t really throw any new punches. The Mullah of American investigative reporting, his book, wasn’t earth shuttering or breaking news; Trump is an idiot, but most people know that, even his supporters and his staff in the White House. The clown is running the political circus, along with the media, politicians and even Mr. Woodward himself on the book tour circuit; almost a 1 million copies of the book sold before it hits the stores or Amazon.

 

Bob Woodward’s reporting is like Thomas Friedman on steroids. If Mr. Friedman is the man of big ideas with little investigations, Woodward is the man of small ideas with lots of investigations. As someone once said, “Bob Woodward brings the truth out of boredom.” The most telling in Woodward’s new book, that didn’t get enough coverage here nor did it raise any debate in this town was when Trump reported branded Egyptian president, el-Sisi “a fucking killer.” Mr. Woodward wrote that while Trump was talking to the Egyptian dictator on the release of Aya Hijazi, an American Egyptian who was detained in Egypt for years, “…remember who I’m talking to. The guy (el-Sisi) is a fucking killer. This guy’s (a) fucking killer… I’m getting it done. He’ll make you sweat on the phone,” Trump added.

Thousands of Muslims take-a-knee at US Bank Stadium, in the Super Eid celebration


Muslims Celebrated the Super Eid at US Bank Football Stadium (Video)

On a beautiful, chilly August morning, thousands of Muslims here in Minnesota headed to, of all places, the US Bank football stadium. There they gathered in the tens of thousands to celebrate what was coined as “Super” Eid. The Eid al Adha (feast of sacrifice) commemorates the story of Abraham and his son Ishmael (let us not get picky on which son), who was to be sacrificed until God replaced him with a sheep. On this celebratory day, thousands of Muslims descended from everywhere by cars, buses, light rail, even on foot, dressed in their colorful cloths unapologetically celebrating their traditions and costumes.
