The Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday is signed into law by President Reagan in 1983.

PRES. RONALD REAGAN: And while our communication should always deal with current issues of importance, it must never stray far from our national commitment to the battle against discrimination and increase our knowledge of each other.

A few isolated groups in the backwater of American life still hold perverted notions of what America is all about.

If I may, from the platform of this organization, known for its tolerance, I would like to address a few remarks to those groups who still adhere to senseless racism and religious prejudice, to those individuals who persist in such hateful behavior.

Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison, the Democrat Party’s #2, just said that President Trump is worse than the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un. Do other Democrats agree with this?

KEITH ELLISON: “North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there. Kim Jong Un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader. Well, he is acting more responsibly than this guy is. And but I’m telling you is that once you start seeing missile launches, you’re going to see the time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now. So, if you don’t want to get caught deer in the headlights, start calling for diplomacy in North Korea immediately.”

Social media erupted on Sunday when a poll showed musician Robert Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, up by four points over incumbent Democratic Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow. Delphi Analytics, whose website just launched this month, released the findings:

Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow. These results could indicate that Ritchie is a popular figure in Michigan, Debbie Stabenow is unpopular, or some combination of concurrent trends. The relatively large, 44%, number of undecided respondents may be due to the early stages of the campaign.
