Hence, Pence

“When the conversation turned to gay rights, Trump motioned toward Pence and joked, ‘Don’t ask that guy — he wants to hang them all'” Jane Mayer in The New Yorker: The Danger of President Pence. “Trump’s critics yearn for his exit.

+ Trump issued his daily dose of half-truths and outright lies during an impromptu Rose Garden press conference held to convince Americans that he and Mitch McConnell like each other. The most offensive of the lies was the sick suggestion that Obama and other presidents didn’t interact with families after soldiers were killed in action.

+ Russian trolls were schooled on House of Cards.
