Just a few things I find annoying this fine morning:
CIA determines that Washington Post Journalist Khashoggi’s murder and dismembering was ordered by Trump and Kushner’s BFF Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Trump’s response is to throw his full support behind the the Crown Prince and claim that the CIA’s did not conclude what they concluded. Not even that they are wrong, but that they did not conclude what they concluded.

This McDonald’s manager, after seeing a big scary white guy threaten a gaggle of Somali American teenagers with a gun, tried to send the kids into the waiting maw of said gun out in the parking lot.
@McDonalds is this what you stand for? We were just trying to order when this man said racist remarks, claimed to be touched (when really he pushed a kid as seen on video) pulled a gun out on kids and you still kick us out knowing we’re in danger? 1/2 pic.twitter.com/3vKXsxhuwH

Trump had, it turns out, actually ordered the prosecution of both James Comey and Hillary Clinton.
Trump has never visited American troops in combat theaters. All presidents have done this since a long time ago. Several excuses have been proffered, but now, we know the truth, from the Washington Post:
Trump has spoken privately about his fears over risks to his own life, according to a former senior White House official, who has discussed the issue with the president and spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly about Trump’s concerns.
“He’s never been interested in going,” the official said of Trump visiting troops in a combat zone, citing conversations with the president. “He’s afraid of those situations. He’s afraid people want to kill him.”
