Well, that was awkward.
Earlier today, President Donald Trump sat with his Veterans Administration Secretary David Shulkin present, and spoke on-camera about a 'big meeting' on issues important to American military veterans. The meeting, Trump explained, would be held not in Washington but at the very convenient Florida location of Mar-a-Lago, the private resort Trump owns, about a thousand miles away

The president, speaking at a Veterans Affairs listening session at the White House earlier today with VA Secretary David Shulkin, said the “major meeting” would bring together “some of the people that we put on a board” to address health care issues in the department at his “Southern White House.” It will kick off Trump’s fifth weekend stay in Palm Beach since he took office in January.
Among the members of that group: Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter, a fellow part-time Palm Beacher who supported Trump’s presidential campaign. Perlmutter met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in December.

Something the Klan probably appreciates.
There's one White House. It's in Washington, D.C.

The President of the United States earlier today said these very words. Peter Serafinowicz just sassified them.
Donald Trump, having failed to accomplish much from the 100-day plan laid out in the “contract with the American voter” still live on his website, now says that he is being held to “ridiculous standards”. Analyzing the accomplishments of a United States president after their first 100 days in office is a decades-old tradition and, […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
