From CBS News:
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson was quizzed at a hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday, resulting in yet another viral moment for the cabinet official. Appearing before the House Financial Services Committee for an oversight hearing, Democratic Rep. Katie Porter asked Carson to help define what “REOs” are.
For those not in well-versed in housing terminology, “REO” stands for “real estate owned” — a term used to describe foreclosed property that has been transferred back to a bank or lender after an unsuccessful auction. Banks will typically sell REO properties as-is, meaning the buyer buys the home and all the problems along with it.
Carson, however, appeared to have misheard Porter, thinking she was referring to the delicious chocolate sandwich cookie.

The Chairman and CEO of American Media and publisher of the toilet paper called The National Enquirer (among other tabloid rags) is name David….are ya ready?….Pecker!!! So, anyway, the latest is that the Twitler-loving Pecker has been bashing anyone Twitler perceives to be his enemies (like Joe Scarborough and bloody-faced girlfriend Mika Brzezinski) and covering up anything that might be detrimental to the Shithead-in-Chief. Put on your seatbelts, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride…

From VANITY FAIR:
On Monday, Trump convened his first full Cabinet meeting since taking office, gathering the heads of every major government agency for a press gaggle around the elliptical mahogany table that occupies a prominent place in the West Wing. Traditionally, the media is present only at the beginning of such meetings, during which the president makes a brief statement and a few photos are snapped before a review of the administration’s progress continues behind closed doors. Trump tried something a little different.
