North Korea Lashes Out After Trump's Latest Tantrum

On Friday, Donald Trump announced via Twitter that he was canceling the next meeting between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean negotiators and, in fact, would be suspending negotiations with North Korea entirely for the time being. Because Trump is a liar, we don’t actually know if this is true or if it will remain true past, say, next Thursday, but his announcement seems largely due to Trump finally realizing that North Korea has been playing him for a chump, rebuffing even preliminary denuclearization discussions while insisting that the United States lift sanctions first if any progress is to be made.

'Please Don't': Republican Senator Jeff Flake Warns Trump Not to Fire Sessions Over Russia Probe

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake was on Meet the Press this morning, in part to reminisce about his friend Sen. John McCain, and in smaller part to weigh in on the sitting President of the United States being marked as an unindicted co-conspirator in an illegal campaign finance scheme revolving around the payment of "hush money" to mistresses in order to keep their stories out of the press during the last critical weeks of the 2016 election. This is only tangentially related to the larger probe into whether or not the same candidate and campaign team sought and received the assistance of Russian government actors in order to procure damaging information about his campaign opponent, the accusation of “collusion” that has put President Co-Conspirator into an unending daily fit for two solid years now.

Don Lemon Reveals Trump Called Him 'Racist' for the Most Absurd Reason

CNN anchor Don Lemon has been a frequent target of Donald Trump's puffy wrath of late. Discussing the attacks on-air with his other CNN anchors, Lemon revealed that Trump's antipathy toward him has been both long-lasting and pointedly race-based; after a 2011 interview in which Trump was asked to defend his crackpot claims that President Barack Obama was not actually an American citizen, Trump fumed at him for the pointed questions.

Will Trump Pull the United States out of NATO?

Will Donald Trump give Russian leader Vladimir Putin the best of all possible gifts: pulling the United States out of NATO? As insane as that sounds, Trump has been making noises to other world leaders threatening to do exactly that. After opining to G7 leaders during their summit a few weeks ago backing Russia's claim to the now-occupied Crimea because, well, the people there speak Russian so there, Trump reportedly complained about the upcoming NATO summit on July 11:

In Appalling Call for 'Civility,' Washington Post Compares Huckabee Sanders Restaurant Incident to Far-Right Terrorism

On Sunday the anonymous writers of the Washington Post editorial board lobbed a doozy of a stink grenade into the public discourse with an editorial demanding, per the title: "Let the Trump team eat in peace." It bemoaned that "strong political feelings have spilled into what used to be considered the private sphere." It grumbled that "social media have blurred the line between work hours and private time." It pouted, in an odd little aside, how ubiquitous cellphone cameras "make it ever easier to intrude."

Well of course Trump isn't going to bring up human rights when meeting with the North Korean dictator. That'd be insulting to the nuclear rogue state, and Trump is only insulting to U.S. allies, not dictators.
