1. Here’s what you need to know about him:
- Ray Charles was born blind on Dec. 8, 2012.
- He was one of five puppies that survived in the litter.
- After his birth, the breeder noticed he wasn’t running around and playing with his sisters as he should have been, so the breeder took him to the vet and found out was blind.
- His life became a waiting game as to if he was ever going to find a home or not. Luckily his dad found out about him before it was too late, and saved his life!
And most importantly…
- Rick Perry, who famously wanted to abolish the Energy Department, said at his confirmation hearing to lead the Energy Department he now rejects "recommending its elimination."
- Vladimir Putin has used KGB tactics to seize on a rift between the US and Turkey, an effort to expand Russia's influence and divide NATO.
- Donald Trump's pick for treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, defended at his confirmation hearing using offshore tax shelters, saying it was an inevitable result of current tax codes.
