Advertisement Supported by The Shindigger “You’d better not say I was here,” said one White House reporter, who attended the awkward drinks at a nearby steakhouse. ByShawn McCreesh June 25, 2019 WASHINGTON — Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the outgoing White House press secretary. Maybe it was a case of Stockholm syndrome. Certainly, it was an odd sight: journalists turning out to raise a glass to the unflinching defender of a president who accuses the media of being “the enemy of the people” or worse. But most of the journalists who gathered at Rare Steakhouse, a dim surf-and-turf joint two blocks from Pennsylvania Avenue, had no qualms.

When President Trump welcomed President Emmanuel Macron of France to the White House on Tuesday for the first official state visit of the Trump administration, their body language went beyond the usual respectful handshakes of two world leaders meeting for high-level talks and bordered on the intimate.

The three prisoners, all American citizens of Korean descent, were described as healthy and able to walk on their own after months of imprisonment by one of the world’s most repressive governments. They were scheduled to land at 2 a.m. Thursday at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, where Mr. Trump intended to greet them. The release of the three Americans removed a bitter and emotional obstacle ahead of a planned summit meeting between Mr. Trump and Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader. The move … [Read more...] about Freed Americans Leave North Korea, as Trump Prepares to Welcome Them Home

Then came the expletives. Then came more. But nothing could reverse it. Former Representative Michael Grimm — undeterred by a felony tax plea, which he recently chalked up to a witch hunt, and a presidential endorsement for his opponent, which he had dismissed as insignificant — was acknowledging something he did not expect to reckon with this time: political gravity. “We make plans,” he said, conceding a lopsided defeat to Representative Dan Donovan, the Republican who replaced him … [Read more...] about Michael Grimm Falls Back to Earth.

Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host. [Get On Politics delivered to your inbox.] Man, it has been a week. We knew on Sunday, when The Washington Post dropped the first story about Christine Blasey Ford, that we would be in for a whirlwind. We’re still waiting for the final word on if (and when) Dr. Blasey may testify. We’re also waiting to see if President Trump responds to the news that his deputy attorney general suggested secretly recording him in the White House. But it’s Friday (finally!), and these stories will be with us all next week. So let’s talk about something else. Let’s talk about you. We got so many thought-provoking responses to our letter about … [Read more...] about On Politics With Lisa Lerer: ‘I Found My Voice’
