Trump is using D.C.-based Republican convention plans to suck more profit out of the presidency

Donald Trump’s main reason for wanting to give his Republican National Convention speech on the South Lawn of the White House is most likely the venerable backdrop and the aura of importance it will lend him. If he can’t have the screaming, adoring crowd he was expecting first in Charlotte, North Carolina, and then in Jacksonville, Florida, at least he can look presidential. But as always with Trump, the grift is never far behind the ego. Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel has jacked up its prices for the week of the planned kinda-sorta convention. Never cheap, the hotel’s rates for those dates are 60% higher than for the surrounding weeks. Because why only shatter norms and bend ethics laws to the breaking point when you can also make some money off it?

Scholars slap down Trump's claim that Supreme Court's DACA ruling gives him added powers

Following the Supreme Court’s decision that he unlawfully ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, impeached president Donald Trump didn’t then reopen it to the hundreds of thousands of new applicants he’s blocked since trying to end it. Instead he claimed the decision “gave the president of the United States powers that nobody thought the president had” to act on things like health care, voting, and immigration. I’ll begin with this: what the fuck is he talking about?  “The source of Trump’s recent bravado” links to Bush era official John “Torture Memos” Yoo, who apparently in some writings “contends [the DACA decision] allows presidents to take even unlawful actions that can require years of legal battles to undo,”The Washington Post reports. Um ... okay? Look, I’m not a constitutional scholar here, so let’s turn to Laurence Tribe, who actually is one at Harvard University, and told The Post what he thinks about Yoo’s theory: “I think he must be on some kind of drug.”

Helen Burgess, who works under the moniker nosey mungo, crafts a playful troupe of characters with endlessly diverse expressions: there’s a flock of startled chickens, a bulging rain frog sporting a dramatic frown, and a whale duo grinning with contentment. Imbued with a bit of whimsy, Burgess’s clay creatures are derived from their real-life counterparts.
