The day after a CNN interview with a former Playboy model who claims to have had a 10-month affair with her husband, first lady Melania Trump opted to leave President Donald Trump alone for the ride from the White House to Andrews Air Force Base.
After threatening a veto via Twitter on Friday morning, President Donald Trump -- flanked by several of his favorite (for now) Cabinet secretaries -- announced he had signed the $1.3 trillion budget bill that will keep the government funded and open through September.
NFL defensive end Michael Bennett was indicted Friday in Houston on a charge of injury to the elderly in connection with an incident that occurred when he was a spectator at the 2017 Super Bowl, authorities said.
One of the first uses of a trove of Facebook data on tens of millions of Americans that has thrown Facebook and Cambridge Analytica into crisis this week was in 2014 by a super PAC run by John Bolton, President Donald Trump's new national security adviser, two former Cambridge Analytica employees told CNN.
In this week's episode of "As the Trumpworld Turns," a porn actress, a former Playboy Playmate and a reality TV "Apprentice" walked into a bar ... and served the President of the United States a little of his own medicine.
The departure of Lt. Gen H.R. McMaster from the White House removes one of the most capable public servants in the Trump administration, a war hero in both US wars in Iraq whose doctorate became "Dereliction of Duty," an influential best-seller that excoriated the generals who waged the Vietnam War for not providing President Lyndon B. Johnson with unvarnished military advice.
In this, the era of Trump, it is no surprise that the former Playboy model who told of an affair with the man who became president has shown herself to be more honest, empathetic, courageous, and decent than the President of the United States.

Guillermo del Toro just won an Oscar for "The Shape of Water," which will likely make "Pacific Rim" recede even further down his resume. But the director's 2013 movie about giant alien invaders versus Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em robots fared well enough internationally to warrant an encore, so enter "Pacific Rim Uprising," a monster mashup of movies past with a notable demographic tilt toward the "Power Rangers" demo.
"Barry" invites comparisons to "Get Shorty," focusing as it does on a hit man who's suddenly and somewhat inexplicably bitten by the acting bug. But this HBO series from Bill Hader and "Silicon Valley's" Alec Berg turns into something more interesting, a bittersweet dramedy that's uncomfortably funny and simultaneously dark and tense.
