The line of the day, at least, is surely Robert Waldman’s snark describing the Trump administration’s “petty graft [running] from emoluments to emollients“, i.e. from the Trump Hotel to this.

This, via Crooks & Liars, On 1958 TV Show, Confidence Man ‘Trump’ Promises To Build A Wall To Save The World is one heck of a coincidence:
- Trump Thanks United Nations For Inviting Him To Their Country
- Nikki Haley: ‘The U.S. Will No Longer Sit Idly By While Iran Continues To Exist’
- Everyone At U.N. Watching Trump Speak Can’t Believe They Used To Consider U.S. A Superpower
And this non-UN one too: Experts Say Puerto Rico Still Extremely Vulnerable To Future U.S. Government.
I am far from being Chuck Schumer’s greatest fan, but I have to hand it to him for his masterful trolling of Senate Republicans this week. By suggesting that the Russel Office Building be renamed for the now late Senator McCain, Sen. Schumer threatens Republicans with a vote that would be a Hobson’s choice: either they vote for McCain, who not only will be said to represent the virtues they have left behind but will also be a vote that enrages their Maximum Leader. Or, they can vote for the segregationist, Richard Russell, a Georgia Democrat who led opposition to civil rights legislation.
It’s beautiful: vote for the anti-Trump or for the Democratic segregationist. No wonder Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to bury the suggestion under delaying tactics.
