Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said Monday that President Donald Trump is the only president "for whom objective reality doesn't seem to be compelling." Hayden said on "CBS This Morning" that Trump "really didn't know anything about the [intelligence] community" when he entered the White House. "The first time we had to meet him and discuss was over an issue that other people were using to challenge his legitimacy as president – the whole Russia thing," Hayden said. "We're existing comfortably/uncomfortably." Co-host Alex Wagner then interjected that Trump still refers to the investigation into Russian election interference as a "witch hunt." Hayden replied, "I know. And that's why I say comfortable/uncomfortable. "Some days are good days, some days are bad days. But the core here, even in this co-existence, is the president's view towards truth and reality, and that's the point I try to make in the book. We've had presidents who disagree with us; we've had presidents who … [Read more...] about Hayden: ‘Objective Reality Doesn’t Seem to Be Compelling’ to Trump

Emily Yahr, The Washington Post Published 11:32 am PDT, Monday, July 9, 2018 (This post contains some spoilers from the first episode of "Sharp Objects.") In many ways, HBO's adaptation of "Sharp Objects" - the 2006 debut novel from Gillian Flynn, who rocketed to fame years later with "Gone Girl" - stays very true to the book. Lots of specific details in the eight-episode miniseries are the same. Camille (Amy Adams), the alcoholic journalist who returns to her Missouri hometown to write about a possible serial killer targeting young girls, tells her editor that she's "trash, from old money." Camille's mother, Adora (Patricia Clarkson), pulls out her eyelashes when she gets anxious. Camille's half sister, Amma (Eliza Scanlen), has a fixation on dollhouses.

At times, a fascinating and inspiring name is used like an advertisement so that the caption of the words dwells on every tongue, the bench said. The Allahabad High Court has again dismissed a public interest litigation that raised objection to the name ‘Anti-Romeo Squad’, observing that it cannot indulge in argumentative interpretation of a name the government has chosen so as to hold as to whether a name is good or bad.A bench comprising Justice Amreshwar Pratap Sahi and Justice Sanjay Harkauli quoted a part of the famous Shakespearean drama ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to dispel objection to the name.It said: “In Act II Scene 2 of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ as authored by Shakespeare, Romeo recites, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other word would smell as sweet”. Thus, all this hue and cry about a name, having been used, has been raised without even referring to the context.”The court said the government … [Read more...] about What’s In A Name?
