Trump Warns That Florida Recount Could Set Dangerous Precedent of Person With Most Votes Winning

Daring Fireball - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 08:45

Satirist Andy Borowitz:

Calling for an “immediate end” to the recount in Florida, Donald J. Trump warned on Monday that it could set a dangerous precedent of the person with the most votes winning.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said that those in favor of the recount had a “sick obsession with finding out which candidate got the most votes.”

“Democrats are going on and on about counting every last vote until they find out who got the most,” Trump said. “Since when does getting the most votes mean you win?”

Under Trump, the line between satire and news is ever more blurred. The above is a more fair, more accurate description of Trump’s reaction to these close elections than anything in the supposedly straight news.

13" vs 15" MBP

iOS Programming - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 00:58

Kinda new to programming and looking for something long term and iOS development. I am wondering if there are benefits for one or the other. I see an old post that refers to 15" because it's a quad-core but now the 13" is a quad-core so I don't think it matters. But I hear people saying 15" is more important especially for coding. Wondering what your thoughts on this. I'm looking at: 13" 16gb ram 512SSD quad-core.
