Secretary of State Mike Pompeo finished two days of talks with senior North Korean officials in Pyongyang on Saturday, telling reporters that the two countries agreed to continue discussions on denuclearization and the repatriation of the remains of Americans killed during the Korean War. Following Pompeo’s remarks, North Korea’s foreign ministry said the talks with Pompeo were “regrettable” and accused the U.S. of making unilateral demands for denuclearization.
Ladies & Gentleman, the President of the United States: “I have broken more Elton John records. He seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No, we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look, I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really, we do it without, like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical – the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth, right? The brain. More important than the mouth is the brain. The brain is much more important.”
A New York woman was arrested after she went on a racist rant and called other passengers the n-word and “illegal immigrants” before attacking one of the several riders who was recording her tirade. Hopefully she has a job that she will be fired from and be replaced by an immigrant.

This is just so wrong.
