In other news, Politico reports that Trump and his national security adviser John Bolton aren't really preparing for the meeting with Kim Jong Un. Trump himself made that clear today.

Meanwhile, two of EPA administrator Scott Pruitt's top aides have resigned. Millan Hupp, the aide who arranged Pruitt's call with Chick-fil-A and the purchase of a used mattress from Trump's hotel, says she was tired of being thrown under the bus by Pruitt.

Finally, a federal judge has ruled that the ACLU's lawsuit against Trump's policy of separating children from their parents at the border may proceed.

“These allegations sufficiently describe government conduct that arbitrarily tears at the sacred bond between parent and child," [U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw] wrote. The conduct, if true, “is brutal, offensive, and fails to comport with traditional notions of fair play and decency." [...]

“The government actors responsible for the ‘care and custody’ of migrant children have, in fact, become their persecutors," the judge said.

The ACLU is arguing that the policy violates their right to due process.

    If this doesn’t make the left cognizant of the value of the court system in preserving basic human decency and how important that branch of government is, nothing will. Not to worry. Susan Sarandon can feed the kids tea and cookies when and if anyone is allowed in to see them. So, there’s that. Are we ‘woke’ now?

    For once, Generalissimo Tangerine is probably being, if nothing else, candid.

    Scott Pruitt requires a privacy booth, a specific mattress from a specific hotel and a particular brand of lotion from again, a specific hotel. And these people judge porn stars?!?

    Godwin’s Law is officially an anachronism.
