Between Trump and his national security adviser lie 'ferocious' internal politics
"'It can be difficult to advise the President effectively given his seemingly short attention span and propensity to be easily distracted,' a source knowledgeable about McMaster's day-to-day challenges told CNN. The source added that McMaster's task -- being an honest broker of various national security options for the President -- is further complicated by fears on the National Security Council that Trump can be reckless with sensitive information. 'You can't say what not to say,' the source said of Trump, 'because that will then be one of the first things he'll say.'"

Some Groups Of People Who May Not 100% Deserve Our Eternal Scorn
"1. Celebrities Who Speak Out Against Donald Trump
No, celebrities are not going to single-handedly change the world. Yes, celebrities are often annoying, and almost by definition out-of-touch. Yes, a Democratic campaign needs to have some substance beyond 'look, celebrities!' But from the celebrities’ own point of view, *they’re doing the best they can*. If Kim Kardashian wants to help the cause, what do you expect her to do? Write policy white papers? Go door-to-door canvassing? Or would you rather she just stayed silent and didn’t do anything?"

Any Half-Decent Hacker Could Break Into Mar-a-Lago
"The risks posed by the lax security, experts say, go well beyond simple digital snooping. Sophisticated attackers could take advantage of vulnerabilities in the Wi-Fi networks to take over devices like computers or smart phones and use them to record conversations involving anyone on the premises. 'Those networks all have to be crawling with foreign intruders, not just ProPublica,' said Dave Aitel, chief executive officer of Immunity, Inc., a digital security company, when we told him what we found."

Trump isn’t a toddler — he’s a product of America’s culture of impunity for the rich - Vox
The truth is that Trump is no child. He’s 70 years old. And he’s not just any kind of 70-year-old. He’s a white male 70-year-old. A famous one. A rich one. One who’s been rich since the day he was born. He’s a man who’s learned over the course of a long and rich life that he is free to operate without consequence. He’s the beneficiary of vast and enormous privilege, not just the ability to enjoy lavish consumption goods but the privilege of impunity that America grants to the wealthy

At a Besieged White House, Tempers Flare and Confusion Swirls
"In private, three administration officials conceded that they could not publicly articulate their most compelling — and honest — defense of the president for divulging classified intelligence to the Russians: that Mr. Trump, a hasty and indifferent reader of his briefing materials, simply did not possess the interest or the knowledge of the granular details of intelligence gathering to leak specific sources and methods of intelligence gathering that would harm American allies."
