President Trump told two senior Russian officials in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election because the United States did the same in other countries

The parade/rally was one of the best experiences I've ever had. It was like 40,000 people, all your friends, just coming together and celebrating. It's been close to week and it still doesn't feel real.

That seems like a low turnout? I wish this was on a Saturday.

Looked like a lot more than 40,000 people when you look at the mall and the streets where the parade was held. Heard anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000.

I forgot to add the extra zero, 400k. It was a great turnout for a Tuesday. It made D.C. feel like it was Saturday afternoon.

I think you flip flop Nats and caps, but you forgot about the Kastles and the go-go, also both ahead of the wiz.

Wizards are the sleeping giant.

The issue is after the 1979 NBA Finals, the franchise window of winning titles ended and the next franchise level player was never drafted.

Trotz is gone. No shocker I guess with the draft coming up on Saturday but two steps forward, one step backwards for Ted.

I wonder if he's going to take the job in Minnesota now. I think he's just going to promote from within for this hire, Lambert probably.

The assistant Reirden is allegedly the head coach in waiting.

Or the Islanders. Or he's going to just sit out a year?
