Adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, puts her shoe back on after passing through a security screening, as she arrives at federal court in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., April 16, 2018. Reuters photographer Shannon Stapleton: "On the morning that I took this picture there was a mad scrum outside the courthouse to get a picture of Stormy Daniels. She didn't enter the regular entrance of a media gauntlet that was set up for her. I placed myself by a window where I saw her passing through the metal detector. Shooting through the window was difficult but I was able to make the frame." REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton SEARCH "TRUMP POY" FOR FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "REUTERS POY" FOR ALL BEST OF 2018 PACKAGES.

Supporters listen as U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Belgrade, Montana, U.S., November 3, 2018. Reuters photographer Carlos Barria: "As a White House photographer I'm always looking for a way to connect the President, Donald Trump, with a place. Before the mid-term elections Trump spent six days campaigning across the country, and at most of the rallies the visual elements were so similar that it was impossible to say whether we were in Florida or Alaska. In this case, though, the context was obvious. We arrived at a rally in Montana and I noticed a group of Native Americans wearing traditional headdresses behind the podium. For me this was the picture of the day." REUTERS/Carlos Barria SEARCH "TRUMP POY" FOR FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "REUTERS POY" FOR ALL BEST OF 2018 PACKAGES.

The abduction and murder of an Iowa college student, Mollie Tibbetts, has been connected to an immigrant from Mexico, putting immigration politics to the fore months before a midterm election that Trump wants to make all about immigration. (The man’s lawyer says he is in the country legally.) But Republicans seized on the news to call for stricter immigration laws, from Trump down to congressional candidates in Minnesota, like Senate candidate Karin Housley and CD1 candidate Jim Hagedorn. Relatives of Tibbetts say they don’t want her death politicized. The Star Tribune has a story on how it’s playing in Minnesota. … [Read more...] about D.C. Memo: All the president’s bail bondsmen
