This past week, Trump made his first overseas trip — a stretch of time in which he did minimal tweeting. The business-mogul turned politician also implied that the special election in Montana between Democrat Rob Quist and Republican Greg Gianforte was poorly covered, given that Gianforte won the race. Does anyone notice how the Montana Congressional race was such a big deal to Dems Fake News until the Republican won? V was poorly covered, he wrote, presumably meaning V for victor. Earlier in the morning Trump tweeted about that race, saying: Big win in Montana for Republicans! Trump also tweeted this morning about his trip abroad, calling it a great success for America. Just returned from Europe. Trip was a great success for America. Hard work but big results, he tweeted.

President Donald Trump was already struggling to fill hundreds of top legal jobs throughout the federal government. Over the past two weeks, that task became exponentially more difficult, according to top GOP lawyers. Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and the subsequent string of allegations – from Trump demanding a pledge of loyalty from Comey and pressuring him to ease off a probe into his former aide, to revelations that Trump trashed Comey as a “nut job” in an Oval Office meeting with top Russian officials—have narrowed the ranks of people willing to serve. “They were dealing with a pool that had already shrunk and, now, of course, some people will be avoiding it like the plague,” said one well-connected GOP lawyer who held a top-level post in President George W. Bush’s administration and asked not to be named. “The lesser-known folks are wondering if they’re going to take a huge reputational hit if the president of the United States starts tweeting about them.

Trump aides have long attempted to rein in his tweeting, and some saw any type of legal vetting as difficult to implement. “I would be shocked if he would agree to that,” said Barry Bennett, a former Trump campaign aide. It also appears that Sean Spicer is on his way out: Other changes under discussion include removing communications director Mike Other changes under discussion include removing communications director Mike Dubke and installing Sarah Sanders as the main spokesman instead of Mr. Spicer. Another consideration is scaling back on daily press briefings. Mr. Spicer, one of the only practicing Catholics among Mr. Trump’s senior staff, was a last-minute scratch from the president’s meeting with Pope Francis this week, a move that shocked some senior administration officials. Mr. Spicer and Ms. Sanders didnt respond to further questions on any coming changes.

Impressed nonetheless, the Johnson administration appointed him to the State Department's Policy Planning Council in 1966. Though he was low on the White House totem pole, the position gave Brzezinski entre to the highest circles of White House decision-making. After Carter left office, Brzezinski returned to lecturing, writing and serving on commissions, boards and task forces. He took part in the long-awaited reunification of Europe as a delegate to proceedings designed to bring the former Soviet republics into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It was a triumph for the allies, he said, over a brutal secret non-aggression deal hatched during World War II the final undoing in Europe of the legacies of the Stalin-Hitler pact. He remained engaged and opinionated, tweeting for the last time early this month: Sophisticated US leadership is the sine qua non of a stable world order. However, we lack the former while the latter is getting worse.

Alan Martin 1 day 1 hour ago Life Culture ATT is on its way to purchasing Time Warner for $85.4 billion . One of Time Warner’s crown jewels is HBO, and one of HBO’s crown jewels is Game of Thrones – so much so that no less than four spin-offs are planned once the current fate of the Seven Kingdoms is settled. Without wanting to dampen expectations, it’s worth remembering that for every Frasier , there’s a Saved by the Bell: The College Years .
