BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court rules the Trump administration can begin barring most transgender people from serving in the armed forces
And...that's a wrap. Brazilian President Bolsonaro spoke for less than 15 minutes. Big fail. He had the entire world watching and his best line was to tell people to come vacation in Brazil.

Bolsonaro is billed as "South American Trump" but he appeared tepid.

President Trump says he has told Press Sec. Sanders "not to bother" with giving formal press briefings from the "podium" anymore.

The last formal White House briefing was Dec. 18, 2018.
Today would be a good day to reopen the government.

Had a call with mayors & supervisors yesterday to discuss the shutdown's impact on Virginia communities. Stunning stories. Small businesses struggling, funding for services like SNAP disrupted, people about to miss mortgage payments. The President needs to reopen the government.

It has been 9 years since the #SupremeCourt’s disgraceful 5-4 #CitizensUnited decision.

The damage this ruling has inflicted on our democracy is undeniable. It is time to choose to be on the side of the American people over sleazy #darkmoney & special interests.

The left loves to accuse anyone who disagrees with them of being racist. Now on the eve of #MLK Day, Actress #AlyssaMilano says red MAGA hats are the new white hoods. Why shocking claims like this are irresponsible, hateful and plain IGNORANT.

We cannot reward hostage-taking. If the President can arbitrarily shut down the government now and get what he wants, he will do it time and again.
The First Lady flew to Florida on Thursday for a weekend vacation on a government plane, according to a law enforcement source, just after President Trump prevented Speaker Pelosi from using a government plane to visit troops in Afghanistan.
If this is true, this is plain, slam-dunk, criminal obstruction of justice (18 U.S.C. 1505, 1512), subornation of perjury (18 U.S.C. 1622), conspiracy (18 U.S.C. 371) and likely aiding and abetting perjury (18 U.S.C. 2).
This proposal, which incorporates provisions similar to legislation I introduced earlier this month wit @senrobportmanh , includes widely supported solutions that both sides of the aisle agree on. Congress must consider this proposal with a real sense of urgency.
Those trying to tar all media today aren’t interested in improving journalism but protecting themselves. There’s a lot more accountability in media these days than in our politics. We know we live in a glass house, we hope the folks we cover are as self aware.
When people in the WH leaked Pelosi's travel plans -- which The Times now confirms was the case -- were they trying to get her killed? Incredibly vindictive and irresponsible, at the least
