The main story tonight concerns the media.
But first, let’s recap this week in politics, more specifically the excruciating evolution of Donald Trump’s cabinet.
Three of Mr. Trump’s controversial nominees, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin, were all confirmed by the Senate this past week. Sessions, whose past has been marred by insensitivities toward pretty much anyone who wasn’t white, and whose 1986 judicial nomination for the U.S. District Court was blocked because of civil rights concerns, was confirmed for Attorney General with a vote of 52-47. So, a man deemed to be too racist to judge back in 1986, is now the Attorney General of the United States.
