This isn't a big enough story to put on Capitol Hill Blue, but it is interesting:
Rudy Giuliani made a small mistake with unanticipated consequences when he left the space out in a sentence in a Tweet. He created a link to a then non-existent website G-20.In. A man named Jason Velazquez, a digital marketing director from Atlanta, noticed it and realized it was a domain in India which he could buy for $6.00. He did this, originally putting up the simple message "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country," but now he is adding links to articles.
Amazingly, as of this writing the Tweet along with the mocking comments has not been deleted. You can read them here.
Note that Giuliani didn't put spaces between two other sentences but this just was sloppy Tweeting with no untoward consquences.

Rudy's Tweeted saying Twitter is run by "card carrying anti-Trumpers" in response and blamed Twitter rather than admit it was his error. He threw in a blast against Time Magazine for good measure.

Bush Sr.'s brand of conservatism paved the way for Trump — here's the real reason right-wingers hates hearing it
From the UK, Trump abandons world leaders:
DONALD Trump was caught saying “get me out of here” as he strolled off stage at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, leaving the Argentinian President Mauricio Macri stood on his own. The Republican firebrand was supposed to pose for a picture with Mr Macri and other world leaders but walked off the stage. Hilarious footage shows Mr Trump shaking hands with the Argentinian President before he wandered off. Mr Macri looked sheepish and perplexed after President Trump deserted him.

Somebody should put the main points from this on a few 3x5 cards for Trump to read:
On a heavy news day what with Bush 41's death and Trump returning from the G20 to face the news that Mueller's hounds are howling at his doorstep, this is a below the fold Capitol Hill Blue column.
The heavyweight 2020 fight could be Tester vs. Christie.
