Not even a fruit basket

"New Putin-Erdogan deal is sugar-coating the Turks’ surrender" (Ritter),  Russian diplomacy is such that if you go to Moscow you at least walk away with a nice fruit basket, but Putin was so obviously furious at the lying, sneaking Erdoğan that he took the time to call him out in public for acting in a way that got Erdoğan's own troops killed.  That was intended to go directly back to Turkey, where there is already considerable consternation at all the unnecessary trouble Erdoğan  is causing just to help out his best pals, the human organ eaters.

"President al Assad: Erdogan fights beside terrorists out of his Muslim Brotherhood extremism".

Tweet (ديلان dîlan) (Esra Erdoğan is Erdoğan's daughter):
"apparently Esra Erdoğan wrote a long email to UC Berkeley’s Sociology dept yesterday (where she did her phd) demanding a panel about labor movements, rising fascism, and the kurdish struggle in Turkey be canceled (it wasn’t). wild"
Worth watching:  "Tucker: Democrats pin their hopes on gaffe-prone Joe Biden".

I think Warren pulling out is just an indication of the fact that her continued failures don't help the case for her to make at the brokered convention.  She's counting on Biden falling apart, and then presenting herself as the best Presidential candidate to the superdelegates.  As far as she's concerned, Bernie is going to get the inevitable shiv, and her only real impediment will be Killary herself.
