Trump Sees Dire Migrant Detention Conditions as Messaging Problem
Brynn Anderson/APAs news broke on the reportedly horrific conditions at a Texas detention center holding migrant children, President Trump did what he normally does in times of crisis and public relations hellscapes: He monitored the media and political reactions via his White House TV and the DVR device he dubs his "super TiVo."

And in the days since the treatment of small children at this detention facility became major national news, the president wanted to make one thing clear to his subordinates, though his focus was not at all about ameliorating appalling conditions. Trump has repeatedly told advisers and senior aides that, no matter how great the public outrage toward his administration, his lieutenants were to stick to a simple strategy of blaming Democrats and Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, according to two people with knowledge of the exchanges.

In the end for Trump, the dire situation was a mere messaging problem.

Hannity on Mueller Testimony: ‘They Are Harassing the Office of the President!'
Moments after news broke late Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller agreed to testify before Congress next month in an open session, Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed the testimony was nothing short of harassment of the President of the United States.

In a joint statement on Tuesday night, the House Intelligence and House Judiciary Committees announced that Mueller would publicly testify before the House on July 17. The two committees issued a subpoena to compel Mueller's testimony, marking the first time anyone from the special counsel's office will have appeared before Congress to discuss the Russia investigation.

The pro-Trump Hannity, who has spent more than two years discrediting the special counsel, devoted much of his program Tuesday night to downplaying the significance of Mueller's upcoming testimony.
