From People (I’m not kidding, People!!) Politics:
A photo of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reacting to President Donald Trump‘s menacing United Nations address on Tuesday has gone viral.
The photo, taken by Mary Altaffer of the Associated Press, shows Trump’s homeland security secretary turned chief of staff holding his face in his hand while listening to his boss, with First Lady Melania Trump seated in front of him.
The photo quickly made the rounds on Twitter, where many shared Kelly’s apparent distress over the president’s first speech at the U.N. in which he called North Korean leader Kim Jong-un a “rocket man on a suicide mission” and threatened to “totally destroy” the East Asian country.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump said during a meeting on opioids from his golf club
in New Jersey. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen … he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
Two questions, kids. First, would anyone else put money on that quote being penned by Stephen Miller, and second, did anyone else immediately think of this:

US President Donald Trump has said he would be “honoured” to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, in the right circumstances.
“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would – absolutely. I would be honoured to do it,” he told news organisation Bloomberg on Monday.
The previous day he described Mr Kim as a “pretty smart cookie”.
The comments come amid escalating tensions over North Korea’s nuclear programme.
From the Mirror:
Before his election, Donald Trump repeatedly pledged to “make America great again”, laying out an ambitious plan for his first 100 days.
His “contract with the voter” listed 28 promises he would deliver.
Well, the 100 days are up today and so far he has lived down to expectations by failing to deliver on a single major issue.
In the run-up to the milestone day, he moaned: “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
But one thing the US President has managed is to achieve more mayhem and confusion than any of his 44 predecessors.

’s military threatened to go to war with the United States

The President was spotted at Trump International Golf Club at around on Good Friday morning, marking what is thought to be the President’s 18th day spent on one of his golf courses since entering the White House

From The Washington Post:
In his first few months after leaving office, former vice president Richard B. Cheney threw himself into public combat against the “far left” agenda of the new commander in chief. More private reflections, as his memoir takes shape in slashing longhand on legal pads, have opened a second front against Cheney’s White House partner of eight years, George W. Bush.
Cheney’s disappointment with the former president surfaced recently in one of the informal conversations he is holding to discuss the book with authors, diplomats, policy experts and past colleagues.
“In the second term, he felt Bush was moving away from him,” said a participant in the recent gathering, describing Cheney’s reply. “He said Bush was shackled by the public reaction and the criticism he took. Bush was more malleable to that. The implication was that Bush had gone soft on him, or rather Bush had hardened against Cheney’s advice. […]”
