.@KoriSchake at #HooverOTB on 1st Muslim ban: "The most egregious self inflicted wound on America's standing in the world...that I've seen."
.@KoriSchake: US allies watching Trump "feel like they are sitting in the front row of Macbeth & buckets of blood are being spilled on them"
Big question, @lanheechen says, is in the Senate. And a debate over Medicaid, an issue that right now "divides the party pretty strongly."
.@lanheechen at #HooverOTB gives two-to-one odds that the health care bill makes it through the House. "I feel pretty confident."
.@McFaul at #HooverOTB says of Comey and Trump investigation: "This must be serious. He'd never say that if they were just poking around."
The State Department airplane has a separate area for the Secretary of State. Where Rex Tillerson could still work. As his predecessors did.

And...every time @wmata seems worth attempting to use again, it fails. Late trains, rude station managers, and rightfully annoyed passengers
One (and only) consolation: The last three times UNC won the NCAA tournament (1993, 2005, 2009), they did not win the ACC tournament.

In the past, US diplomats argued for press freedoms abroad. How can they keep doing so if they won’t even allow reporters on US govt plane?
.@faded_rccts About a week after trips end, bills go out to media organizations that were traveling. We write checks to US State Dept.
In past, top State Dept officials brief reporters in the back of the plane en route. Benefit? Better understanding of US government policy.
There are about 15 seats in the back of the State Department’s plane that the press have been allowed to occupy. They pay for those seats.
It’s bogus that the State Department isn’t allowing reporters to travel with Rex Tillerson. This was never an issue with John Kerry.
Good thing the ACC tournament is being held in NYC, the media capital of the world, to get all this extra exposure.
