  2. John Kelly Shames the Shameless Media
    Eddie Scarry, Washington Examiner
    As badly as White House chief of staff John Kelly roasted Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., his statements about her unseemly politicization of the president's call to a Gold Star widow were at the same time a rebuke to how the media reflexively aided Wilson's narrative. Kelly said at the press briefing Thursday that he was "stunned" and "brokenhearted" when he saw Wilson in TV interviews and quoted in news reports divulging details about a personal call from Trump to Myeisha Johnson, whose husband died in an enemy ambush earlier this month in Niger.
  3. Bush and Obama Remind Us: This Is Not Normal
    Jen Psaki, CNN

  5. Why Trump Can't Handle the Cost of War
    Peter Beinart, The Atlantic

  11. 'Trump Is Messing With the Wrong Woman'

  12. Despicable People
    Derek Hunter, Townhall
    Nothing is sacred anymore. Nothing is off limits, and everything is political. This week showed us once again there is nothing Democrats wont exploit, no grave they wont dance on, if they think they can score political points. And theres nothing journalists wont spin, wont lie about, and no hypocrisy too great to prevent them from smearing their political opponents.
