In Mexico City. This capital is tense and angry following the sensational prison break by El Chapo, the powerful billionaire drug lord who busted out Saturday night.
With the Mexican president out of country on a state visit to France there is a feeling that the government is helplessly inept and hopelessly corrupt.
From here in the capital, every newspaper is blaming that malignant corruption for the great escape. No way, the feeling...

To My Friend Donald ..
You owe all POW'S an explanation. You must apologize and tell them that you didn't mean what you seemed to say equating those who suffered the worst of war--captured and abused by the enemy--to a kind of second-rate GI.

With Friiends Like T..
It's hard when people you are proud to call your friend do or say things that are offensive and/or embarrassing. I've previously spoken out about how my brilliant, former boss on "Celebrity Apprentice" Donald Trump unnecessarily insulted the entire Mexican race including the 35 million Mexican Americans with his sloppy statements implying that all immigrants from Mexico are rapists and drug dealers. Although he has subsequently moderated those st...
