Byron York: What now, for those who denied a ‘crisis’ at the border? (Washington Examiner)

Congress is debating emergency humanitarian aid to care for migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border. The need is obvious. With virtually no barrier to stop them, thousands of migrants are crossing illegally into the United States every day. More than a million will come this year. U.S. law prevents border officials from quickly returning them. While they are being processed, some of the migrants, including children, are being kept temporarily in terrible conditions. American officials have an obligation to take care of them before those with no valid claim to be in the United States are returned to their home countries. [Read More]

Byron York: E. Jean Carroll, Donald Trump, and a rape accusation from an earlier era (Washington Examiner)

E. Jean Carroll, the longtime Elle magazine advice columnist who on Friday accused President Trump of raping her 23 or 24 years ago, has a new book coming out next week. What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal will “shock men and delight women,” according to the book’s promotional materials. Whatever the book’s precise theme — it’s still under wraps — it seems likely to represent a significant evolution from Carroll’s 2004 Man Catching Made Easy: Mr. Right, Right Now!, a how-to guide that promised to reveal “How to land a guy in 6 days!” [Read More]

President Trump Responds to Viral Video of U.S. Soccer Star Megan Rapinoe Saying She Won’t Go to the White House (TIME)

A video interview with U.S. soccer player Megan Rapinoe, in which she says she would not go to the White House if the U.S. wins the Women’s World Cup, has generated more tension between the soccer star and President Donald Trump over her protest of the National Anthem during World Cup games in France.

In the video interview, which was shot before the World Cup, Rapinoe told an Eight by Eight magazine reporter who asked if she is excited about going to the White House, “I’m not going to the f-cking White House… We’re not going to be invited.” The soccer star said she was more focused on playing well than on the opinion of her president. “We just expect to win every single game,” she said of the upcoming Women’s World Cup, quickly changing the subject.

Here’s what happened during the Wayfair walkout in Boston (Boston.com)

Hundreds of workers and supporters assembled Wednesday afternoon outside Wayfair’s headquarters in Boston in protest of the company’s sale of bedroom furniture for detention shelters for migrant children.

“I’m proud to work at Wayfair,” Elizabeth Good, a manager at the online furniture retailer, told the packed Copley Square crowd. “And I’m proud to continue the dialogue that will lead to us ending the support of concentration camps at our southern border.” [Read More]

Claire McCaskill To Elizabeth Warren: Stop Lecturing, Be More Relatable (Grabien)

McCASKILL: “I think you have to swing for the fences with humor. You have to swing for the fences with people being comfortable that you’re in command of the policy, but not so in command of the policy that you’re not relatable. That’s Elizabeth’s challenge frankly, sometimes. You know, she comes very close to that professor I just wanted to be quiet. You know, like, I read the material, I get it, quit lecturing me. So she has to be relatable and warm. All of them do. If they can come out of this distinguishing themselves from the others by virtue of promoting who they are as opposed to — I don’t think they’ll move it just by going after Joe. I think it’s obvious.” [Read More]
