Democrat and former acting attorney general Sally Yates testified in Monday's hearings as a party heroine to run for Senate after her stand against Trump's travel ban. All day in the hearings, Sally was polite, thoughtful, restrained and respectful to both parties. So she'll never work in politics again.
• Barack Obama gave a speech accepting the JFK Profiles in Courage Award at the Kennedy Presidential Library at Harvard Sunday. It was a night of appreciation richly deserved. President Obama will go down in history as the only winner of the Nobel Peace Prize to bomb seven countries.
• Conde Nast reports that American tourists will spend three billion dollars vacationing in Great Britain this summer. However, there is not so much interest in the continent. The latest poll shows that sixty percent of Americans believe that a macaroon just defeated a pen to be president of France.
• France celebrated the presidential victory of Emmanuel Macron Sunday as the French media compared the young leader to the Emperor Napoleon and called his win a defeat for Trump. Wait just a minute, you can't have it both ways. Napoleon can't win and Trump can't lose at the same time.
• President Trump's victory celebration in the Rose Garden for House Republicans who voted out Obamacare was ripped by Democrats Thursday. They said it only included old white men. Today's Democrats would flip out if they ever saw the group photo of the signers of the Constitution.
• President Trump's weekend getaways to Florida and his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Springs began drawing partisan criticism last week after Trump's seventh trip in three months. It's an old problem. Somebody should build a golf course at the White House so presidents can work from home.
• White House economists pointed out that U.S. sanctions on Russia for annexing the Crimea have crushed the ruble by fifty percent and thrown Russia's economy into a deep and long recession. It was ever thus. If serfdom returns to Russia, ninety percent of the population won't feel the difference.
• President Trump celebrated with House Republicans Thursday after they passed a plan which repeals and replaces Obamacare. They claim the GOP healthcare plan doesn't make promises it can't keep. Under the Republican plan, if you like your doctor, you can caddy for him on Wednesdays.
• The Department of Agriculture removed animal welfare reports from its website, citing privacy rights and lawsuit concerns. Some animals can be extremely dangerous. To ensure your own safety, never approach a bull from the front, a horse from behind, or an airline attendant from any direction.
• Delta Airlines flight attendants were caught on videotape Thursday forcing a family to get off the aircraft. It's an epidemic. Ten years ago, Americans hated to go through TSA airport security where passengers were groped and stripped and x-rayed but now it's the most pleasant part of the trip.
• North Korea's Kim Jung Un warned China Friday not to try to interfere in North Korea's spat with the U.S. as tensions escalate in the region. Iran is now purchasing missiles from North Korea, which doesn't make sense. Iran makes suicide vests that have more liftoff than North Korean missiles.
