Pence traveled 100+ miles from Trump hotel for this warm reception? Magnificent.

VP Pence was greeted with a ticker tape parade and much fanfair at his arrival in Doonbeg, Ireland.

Full-page editorial in @washingtonpost: "Do something, Mr. McConnell."



“What if there was a mass shooting in the United States not once or twice or four or six times monthly, but every single day, a big one, the kind that electrifies social media and squats for days on Page 1 — would that be enough to move Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from his insistent inertia on gun safety?” the editorial asked.

“Would any volume of bloodshed convince the Kentucky Republican that Congress faces a moral imperative to act? Thirty-eight people were slain in three such shootings in August — in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, as well as West Texas — and still Senate Republicans and President Trump refuse to act,” it added.

Fairly comprehensive takedown of Boris Johnson (& it sounds SO familiar)

Johnson’s actions are best explained by his congenital aversion to things that are hard. He wants a deal but not the effort of getting a deal. He is lying to the public when he blames the opposition or Brussels for his predicament – but lying also, one suspects, to himself. A man who spent years in estrangement from the truth is unlikely to seek its company now.

If anyone is curious: Trump arrived at golf course at 10:07 AM yesterday & got back to WH at 2:55

If anyone is now curious: Trump arrived at his golf course at 10:07 AM yesterday and got back to the White House at 2:55 PM, per the pool reporter.

White Lies

An excellent suggestion:

How about instead of naming the next mass shooting after the city where it happened, we name it after a member of government who has done nothing to stop it? The next one should be the #GregAbbottMassacre

The words 'rat infested...' were visible on one sign."

Pool report: "At 1.46pm two protesters (a man & a woman) walked past the entrance to the Trump National Golf Club ... From a distance they appear to have set up a cardboard cutout and some signs with pictures beneath a tree. The words 'rat infested...' were visible on one sign."
