Trump’s 3 challenges: Himself, media & GOP

After finally getting the endorsement of House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Donald Trump frittered the goodwill away. Trump called a judge born in Indiana a "Mexican." Rather than apologize, Trump, at first, doubled and triple down, until finally saying that he didn't mean that the judge's ethnicity equaled bias.

The Department of Justice and God (Arabic) be praised

"I pledge allegiance to (omitted) may God protect him (Arabic), on behalf of (omitted)," said the man who killed 49 innocent people in an Orlando gay bar on June 12. Or so reported a redacted transcript of phone conversations between the shooter and police. The transcript airbrushed all reference to Islam and the Islamic State. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told ABC's "This Week" that her department was releasing a partial transcript "because we're not going to be, for example, broadcasting his pledges of allegiance. We are trying not to revictimize those who went through that horror."

Obama on Orlando: It’s all about the guns

It did not take long for President Barack Obama to inject a plea for more gun control in his reaction to the Orlando terror massacre. In his five-minute, no-questions-taken-statement, Obama said: "Today marks the most deadly shooting in American history. The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle. This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub. And we have to ...

How not to take blood pressure

DEAR DR. ROACH: Recently, I had my annual checkup and nervously had to wait a while. The doctor's assistant came in and proceeded to take my blood pressure. She then looked at me disparagingly and said: "Do you always have a high blood pressure"? Of course, when she said this it probably doubled. Why can't an assistant quietly enter the numbers into the laptop and let the doctor make the determination rather than leave the patient there wondering whether he or she is going to have a stroke at any minute? The doctor usually takes it before I ...

Stanford offender got life sentence

The victim fought back with words of rage. "I thought there's no way this is going to trial; there were witnesses, there was dirt in my body, he ran but was caught," she wrote in a 12-page statement at the sentencing of Brock Turner, the former Stanford student convicted of sexually assaulting her. "He's going to settle, formally apologize, and we will both move on. Instead, I was told he hired a powerful attorney, expert witnesses, private investigators who were going to try and find details about my personal life to use against me."
