National Creamsicle Day
News of the Day:
+ Comedian Margaret Cho offered some heartfelt advice about surviving the current administration through art and protest. She survived the Bush administration, so she knows what's up.
Meanwhile, David Duke, a former Imperial Wizard of the KKK, was seen publicly praising her father.
+ Anthony Scaramucci, the foul-mouthed former White House Communications Director, had made a handful of interesting comments. In his first interview since his firing, the disgraced Trump associate said, "What happens in Washington... is the president is not a representative of the political establishment class, so for whatever reason the people have made a decision that they want to eject him... I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda."
On the President's reaction to the emergencies in Charlottesville, Scaramucci added that he "wouldn't have recommended that statement. I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that, I applaud Gen. McMaster for calling it out for what it is—it’s actually terrorism.”
