Trump tells Australian PM the call is ridiculous. Tells Mexican PM he has promised people Mexico will pay for the wall...
Why did Ivanka and Jared go to Washington? Was it to be with Dad who they know is incoherent and needs a familiar face to help guide him? It might explain Ivanka's comments that she would 'work alongside' the new Chief Of Staff, Gen John Kelly and not for him. Is Donald Trump Sr incoherent? Does he remember what he said only 12 days before?
So Donald Trump dictated Jrs statement? So he's a dictator... According to Stephen Colbert. (Clip includes Trump Sr's lawyer saying Trump Sr didn't write the statement just after it was released.)
A summary of where we are. CNN. Jeanne Moos is hilarious.
President Trump dictated a misleading statement given out by Donald Trump Jr following the recently reported, and previously denied, Russian interview. Advisors wanted initially to give out a full statement, but Trump Sr decided to overrule this advice and give the misleading statement. This is bad for the president because it shows he is happy to lie about the Russian situation. This from MSNBC.
Seth Myers takes a Closer Look as new proposed Director of White House Communications, Anthony Scaramucci, ruffles feathers in the White House, threatening to fire everyone in the press office after news of a meal is leaked to journalists. Trump tweeted that Trans preople are to be banned from working in the armed services, blaming costs of medical treatment. 15,000 Trans men and women could be affected. Army generals were only told of the announcment a day before.

Summary of the CNN video below: The Donald Trump Jr et al meeting was discounted as an attempt by Natalie Veselnitskaya to get Russian adoptions by Americans lifted. Russian adoptions by Americans were banned by Russia after the passing of the Magnitski Act in the USA. The Magnitski Act freezes Putin's and other Russians assets in banks in the USA (similar Acts exist in other countries). Putin wants that Act repealed as it will cripple his powerbase were he to leave power. Sergei Magnitski [link to wikipedia] was a lawyer and auditor who uncovered a large scale fraud from the Russian state - billions have gone missing, he says, and Putin is alleged to be a beneficiary. Magnitski was arrested and died in prison. The West says it looks like the Rusisans killed him, although the Russians say he died of a heart attack. He was 37.
Stephen Colbert shows us his Anthony Scaramucci impersonation...

Trump doing 'due diligence' about giving himself, and others, a pardon... Reports The Washington Post (Rachel Maddow, MSNBC). This is all part of a broader investigation by the president in how to limit the investigatory powers of the Mueller Special Investigation. The White House is saying this is only an academic exercise at the moment.
Then this, also MSNBC
And this is how we laughed about it... Seth Myers, over to you
The meeting was just Putin and Trump and a Russian translator. No American representative heard a word...
Well, we say Trump's Lawyer but he won't even explain who is ultimately paying him... So Mr Lawyerman, are you sure you aren't being paid by the Russians then? To be continued...

Jimmy Kimmel has a puppet of Kellyanne Conway, but gets all the same answers from the original interview.
Meanwhile in paper news: Jared Kushner 'tried and failed to get a $500m loan from Qatar before pushing Trump to take hard line against country' Says the Independent.
