Saturday Open Thread

Republicans are convening in Burlingame, CA this weekend. Updates here. There were Trump protests and a few arrests. Trump and Kasich spoke (Kasich is staying in.) Cruz and Fiorini will speak tomorrow.

Trump said it would be nice for Republicans to unify, but if they don't, he will still win and he doesn't much care:

Could I win without it? I think so, to be honest, I think so," he said. High-profile Republicans such as Jeb Bush, he continued, may not support him in the general, but he brushed that off as a minor issue. "Big deal, like I care. OK?"

"Again, ideally, we're going to be together," Trump said. "I think I will win even if we're not together. I mean there are some people, I honestly don't want their endorsement. I just don't want it ... It's not going to have any impact on whether or not we beat Hillary Clinton. It's not going to have any impact. But most of the party has to come together."


Remember the woman whose fetus was cut out from her womb by a woman who had posted an ad for free maternity clothes on Craig's List? She was sentenced yesterday to 100 years in prison. Her defense was not based on insanity, but lack of intent to kill the pregnant woman. The defense argued she acted spontaneously. (There was no murder charge because the prosecution didn't prove the fetus was born alive.)

Hopefully, someone has something happier to comment on. This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
