Trump suggests "a little bit of a bonus" for trained teachers who are armed, throwing out 10%, 20% and 40% as possible percentages of teachers who might be qualified.
Also: "You can't hire enough security guards… Your need 100, 150 security guards.”

Seriously, wtf is he even talking about here?
Oh sweet zeus almighty, I just watched the context of this and it’s even more incomprehensible than the quote made it out to be:
TRUMP CALLS FOR MILITARIZED SCHOOLS: "I want a hardened school… I would like to see true people w/great talent at guns, being adept at guns, of which there is only a percentage of people. Whatever that percentage may be, it's substantial. You can't hire enough security guards." pic.twitter.com/WoLQFSm05T

This happened before Hamilton had hit the stage and there are two things I love about this.
1. It’s still pretty early in the creative process and isn’t quite polished yet. In fact, people in the audience aren’t really sure if it’s a goof or not and laugh a few times during the performance.
2. Seeing Obama in the White House is pretty jarring at the moment. Given the chaos that has engulfed the White House over the last year I never have missed Obama more (and he looks so young here!)
There is certainly nothing in the Old or the New Testament
that could not have been written by uninspired human beings.

Hi, please take this down. I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda.
Also, Amy isn't on twitter, but she texted me a message: "Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said fuck off?" https://t.co/YXSdzCdvdd

Sealed though. But Mueller is really hitting Manafort hard. Probably just a matter of time before he cuts a deal.
The special counsel investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin has stepped up pressure on the former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, by filing new sealed court charges against him.
Reuters saw a court record referring to the sealed charges, which were also directed against Rick Gates, Manafort’s former business associate, but the documents provided no details on the nature of the charges.
It was not clear if the charges involved alleged bank frauds the special counsel’s office referred to in a bail hearing for Manafort on Friday, in which he is said to have doctored profit and loss statements from his firm, in order to get a mortgage on a property in Virginia. NBC News reported on Wednesday that Manafort was being investigated for having allegedly promised a Chicago banker a job in the Trump White House in return for $16m in mortgages for properties in Virginia, New City and the Hamptons.
