Josh on the veto:
"This is the single most embarrassing thing the United States Senate has done possibly since 1983."
"At least one prominent Republican senator" was quoted as saying they're "not quite sure what the bill actually did."
"to have members of the United States senate only recently informed of the negative impact of this bill on our service members and our diplomats is in itself embarrassing."
to vote for override "is an abdication of their basic responsibilities as elected representatives of the American people."
"Ultimately these senators are going to have to answer their own conscience and their constituents as they account for their actions today."
Harry Reid showed "courage."
On the Peres funeral, the president "would very much like to" attend and the staff is working "diligently" to see if they can make it happen.
"The president has approved a request from the Department of Defense to increase the number of US military personnel that will be deployed to Iraq by about 600," Earnest said,.
"These are military forces that will be deployed to intensify the strategy that's in place, to support Iraqi forces as they prepare for an offensive against...Mosul.," he added.
Earnest said they would focus on logistics of the Mosul operation but also offer advice and assistance.
Airport greeters in Richmond were:
-Dwight Jones, ?Mayor (D- Richmond, VA)
-Tyrone Nelson, Henrico County Chairman (D?)
