In the aftermath of the shootings, the White House declared that flags will be flown at half mast until August 8.

That's 8/8

NEW: White House officials rebuffed DHS efforts for more than a year to make combating domestic terror threats, such as those from white supremacists a greater priority, according to current & former senior administration officials.

His face is a textbook for the micro-expressions of hate, rage, anger, contempt, and disgust. If you're into body language. And can't change the channel quick enough.

Trump considering executive action over alleged anti-conservative tech bias: report

The White House is reportedly exploring potential executive action President Trump could take to address his and other Republicans' allegations of anti-conservative bias among social media companies.

Politico reported Wednesday that the White House has circulated a draft proposal, though it is unclear what exactly the order would do or how it would target tech companies. One source told the outlet that the details of the proposal remain in flux.
.................
Two other unidentified sources confirmed the existence of a draft order to Politico.
A White House spokesman told The Hill that the administration is looking at "all policy solutions."

“The President announced at this month’s social media summit that we were going to address this and the administration is exploring all policy solutions,” the spokesman said in an email. <snip>

Whatever he signs, the lawsuits will begin. Unfortunately, I fear for the courts given Moscow Mitch's packing.

Trump seeks powers to rein in alleged tech bias

President Trump is doubling down on his attacks against Silicon Valley, fueled by his party’s conviction that social media companies are working to silence right-wing voices.

That hostility has reportedly led the White House to consider an executive order that would task the federal government with overseeing social media platforms’ handling of online political speech.
.............................

CNN on Friday reported the contents of a draft summary of the executive order Trump is considering, which would reportedly push the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to do more to police social media companies' content-moderation decisions.

Under the tentative executive action, titled "Protecting Americans from Online Censorship," the FCC would be tasked with adopting rules that would clarify when social media companies’ content-moderation decisions are legally protected.

The FTC would also take public comments on platforms’ moderating efforts and work with the FCC to investigate those practices.

The FCC and FTC both declined to comment.

It’s still unclear whether the White House plans to move forward with the proposal, which CNN reported could change.

I'd say more like Mr. Edward Hyde.

Hyde was the personification of the evil that dwelt in Jeckyll's soul. As it was freed from the constraints imposed by society, it became stronger and uglier, eventually taking over and destroying Jeckyll.

In conversations with aides, Trump has—with varying degrees of seriousness—floated the idea of buying Greenland, WSJ reports. Trump has asked advisers whether the U.S. can acquire Greenland and reportedly asked his W.H. counsel to look into the idea.

WTF. Last I heard, Greenland was still, although with a lot of autonomy, part of Denmark.

That's what a quick Google said too. Does his staff just humor him and pat his head for being a good boy?
