News Notes

DC city council member Mary Cheh has come up with an idea for dealing with Trump Hotel just a few blocks from the Capitol and the White House. She suggests "A YUUUUGE wall around the new Trump International Hotel.... It’ll be fantastic. We’re going to do a wall; we’re going to have a big, fat beautiful door on the wall. And we’re gonna make Donald pay for it. Let’s make Pennsylvania Avenue Great Again.”. . . . And because of poor ambulance service, Cheh also says, "Given the state of disrepair of [the D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services] fleet ... Uber has agreed to partner with the District on providing emergency medical services. The new UberAm app allows a patient to choose with the tap of a button the level of service (Basic Life Support or Advanced Life Support) that best fits their medical needs. And, during times of mass casualties, consumers are advised to consider their medical event carefully, as surge pricing may be in effect.”

Bill Clinton’s foundation doled out $2 million to a power company partly owned by a wealthy blond divorcĂ©e about whom questions have been raised as to whether she is the frequent visitor to his home nicknamed “Energizer,” the New York Post reports. The “commitment” to Julie Tauber McMahon’s firm from the Clinton Global Initiative was placed on its 2010 conference agenda at Clinton’s urging.
