I have a feeling that the lady behind Cohen's left shoulder with the Farrah hair will become a meme

Her reactions are priceless. Does anyone know who she is?

The report says Harvey overrode staff warnings and promoted the nuclear project pitched by IP3 International, a private company founded by former US generals. Flynn previously advised an IP3 subsidiary, IronBridge Group. The Democrats' report also claims that Flynn's deputy, KT McFarland, continued to raise the proposal even after these warnings, triggering career officials to report her comments to NSC lawyers.

*Snip*

Kavanaugh filed a dissent, writing only for himself. He said he would have allowed the law to take effect in order to see whether it would impose a burden on women's access to abortion in the state.

Abortion-rights advocates applauded the court ruling, while opponents expressed disappointment.

Oh the Irony: Boy bullied for being named "trump" to be guest at SOTU

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/boy-who-bullied-because-he-s-named-trump-among-white-n966876

Poor kid. Bullying is obviously wrong, and this kid shouldn't have to endure it.The irony is that it's all trump's fault, and his narcissism knows no bounds. I bet someone in melania's office got a gold star when they found this kid.

"Willful ignorance". Inside trump's troubled intelligence briefings

http://time.com/5518947/donald-trump-intelligence-briefings-national-security/

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s renewed attacks on the U.S. intelligence community this week, senior intelligence briefers are breaking two years of silence to warn that the President is endangering American security with what they say is a stubborn disregard for their assessments.

Citing multiple in-person episodes, these intelligence officials say Trump displays what one called “willful ignorance” when presented with analyses generated by America’s $81 billion-a-year intelligence services. The officials, who include analysts who prepare Trump’s briefs and the briefers themselves, describe futile attempts to keep his attention by using visual aids, confining some briefing points to two or three sentences, and repeating his name and title as frequently as possible.

What is most troubling, say these officials and others in government and on Capitol Hill who have been briefed on the episodes, are Trump’s angry reactions when he is given information that contradicts positions he has taken or beliefs he holds. Two intelligence officers even reported that they have been warned to avoid giving the President intelligence assessments that contradict stances he has taken in public.
