    NOT EXACTLY THE “A-TEAM”: IS TRUMP GETTING PLAYED BY KIM JONG UN?

    President Donald Trump is firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, tweeting this morning that he plans to replace him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
    Trump asked Tillerson to step aside Friday, a senior White House official told ABC News today, but the State Department says Trump never spoke to Tillerson about the decision.

    ... The White House did not say why McEntee was let go, but a senior U.S. official said he lost his security clearance and could no longer perform his role. Trump wanted to keep him around so a spot was made for him at the campaign, this person said.

    Nominees for secretary of state and CIA director face probable backlash in Senate

    By Karoun Demirjian, Seung Min Kim and Mike DeBonis

    ... Leaders of both parties predicted it could take a while to confirm CIA Director Mike Pompeo as the new secretary of state and Gina Haspel as Pompeo’s replacement at the CIA, leaving the State Department officially rudderless at a time when the administration faces pressing challenges surrounding newly announced talks with North Korea, looming deadlines for continued compliance with the Iran nuclear deal, Russian aggression in advance of the 2018 midterm elections, the rollout of new tariffs and a deteriorating situation in Syria.

    “THE G.O.P. IS FULL OF MORONS”: EVEN THE PRO-TRUMP WORLD GAVE UP ON RICK SACCONE
    To many Trump supporters, Saccone’s travails, much like the recent spate of prickly Republican experiences in post-2016 special elections, appeared to have come out of nowhere

    ... Reports of his vulnerability prompted the G.O.P. to drop over $10 million into the race and to send in the big guns: Mike Pence, Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump Jr., and the president himself, who appeared there twice—once over the weekend, at a rally where the right embraced his newly minted campaign slogan.

    The Trump administration keeps getting its Civil War history wrong
    Jeff Sessions recently compared California’s sanctuary policies to Confederate secession. It didn’t go over well

    By P.R. Lockhart

    ... Sessions also seemed to link California’s unwillingness to cooperate with federal immigration authorities to the secession of Southern states and the creation of the Confederacy, “There is no nullification, There is no secession; Federal law is the supreme law of the land,” he said. “I would invite any doubters to go to Gettysburg or to the tombstones of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln, this matter has been settled.”
