Rocketman, Dotard Don, and Nasty Nukes

The war of words between President Trump and Kim Jung Un would be funny (in a surreal way) if they weren’t actually two world leaders potentially driving the world towards a nuclear exchange. Following Trump’s bombshell UN speech, Kim fired back, calling Trump a “mentally deranged US dotard.” Trump continued the flame war with a twitter blast: “Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!” (If this escalates, it would be SAD!)

+ NYT: Trump poised to drop some limits on drone strikes and commando raids. (And Obama didn’t exactly skimp on the drone strikes…)

+ Politico: “Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has taken at least 24 flights on private charter planes at taxpayers’ expense since early May.” But don’t get on his case. “This is Secretary Price, getting outside of D.C., making sure he is connected with the real American people.” (At least I can admit that when I fly business, it’s for the legroom and to create a little more space between me and the real American people.)
