Kim Jong Un More Popular Than Pelosi Among Republicans: Exclusive Poll Results
GettySelf-identified Republicans now have a marginally more favorable view of Kim Jong Un than they do for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), according to a new Ipsos poll done exclusively for The Daily Beast.

The poll of roughly 1,000 adults aged 18 and over was conducted June 14-15, shortly after President Trump's historic summit with the North Korea dictator. According to the results, 19 percent of Republicans indicated they had a favorable view of Kim with 68 percent saying they had an unfavorable view (12 percent of voters overall had a favorable view of Kim, compared to 75 percent who viewed him unfavorably). That compared slightly better than the perception of Pelosi, who had a 17 percent favorable, 72 percent unfavorable rating among self-identified Republicans.

Pelosi, nevertheless, was only the second-most disliked figure on Capitol Hill. Her overall 29 percent favorable, 47 percent unfavorable rating was slightly better than the numbers for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). McConnell had an overall favorability rating of 20 percent with 43 percent viewing him unfavorable. (Self-identified Democrats, for what it's worth, had a significantly more favorable opinion of McConnell than of Kim Jong Un.)

John Oliver Exposes Trump's Lies About His Border Child Separation Policy
HBOIt's been a very long week. Can you believe that President Trump's historic (and largely fruitless) summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was on Tuesday? Neither can I.

On Sunday's edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver directed much of his ire toward the Trump administration's unspeakably cruel policy of separating children from their families at the border and housing them in prison-like facilities. During a six-week period since the president and his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, instituted their "zero tolerance" illegal immigration policy, the Trump administration has separated 1,995 children from their parents.

"That's right: thousands of children have been forcibly taken from their parents after a policy shift was put into action last month by U.S. Attorney General—and least fun thing to find in a Kinder egg—Jeff Sessions," said Oliver. "Sessions basically started a policy of incarcerating people who crossed the border illegally knowing full well that that incarceration would mean they were separated from their children—many of whom are less than 10 years old with no clear plan as to when they might be reunited."
