Sean Spicer Will Return to the Bushes…Forever?
Today's edition of The Daily Blunt
Welcome to The Daily Blunt, where we recap all that other stuff that happened in the super fast-forward news cycle in which we all exist. We use this space to roll up all of today’s news that we weren’t able to cover in full—but that’s potent enough for you to take a quick hit.
- According to reports, Donald Trump’s White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer won’t be briefing reporters any more. Trump is rumored to be mad at just about everyone, and while Spicer is set to be replaced as the mouthpiece of the administration, when the regime returns from Trump’s first trip overseas as president next week, Spicer’s role will still remain at a senior level. –Politico
- Trump said on Twitter that the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into his campaign’s ties to the Russian government is “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history.” Later in the day, while holding a joint press conference with Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos, Trump said that he thinks the Russia investigation is “dividing the country.” –Politico
- There’s been a startling increase in children migrating around the world without adults, according to UNICEF. The report includes the finding that 92 percent of all minors who arrived in Italy in 2016 were traveling alone, which is up from 75 percent in 2015. –Quartz
- It’s looking a lot more like former Senator Joe Lieberman from Connecticut will be nominated as the next FBI director. The move seems a bit off considering he’s never been prosecutor or had a job in law enforcement. He did, however, help build the framework for the Department of Homeland Security. The choice could also be because Lieberman works for a law firm that has business ties to Trump. –CNN
- The memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to Trump recommending that he fire Comey played no role in Trump’s decision, according to Senator Claire McCaskill. She told reporters just after being briefed by Rosenstein that according to him, Trump knew he was going to fire Comey before the memo was ever written. – Axios
It’s almost Friday, we know it’s been a long week. Luckily we have little Pharrell commencement speech inspiration to get us through until tomorrow.
