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.

Central Park Five Series, ‘When They See Us', Streamed to 23 Million Accounts, Director Says
Emma McIntyreThe critically acclaimed miniseries about the Central Park Five has been streamed by over 23 million accounts, its director Ava DuVernay claimed in a late-night tweet Wednesday.

The four-part series, When They See Us, which went live on the streaming service on May 31, explored the extraordinary miscarriage of justice that saw five young black men jailed after they were falsely accused of being involved in the savage 1989 rape of a white jogger in New York's Central Park.

Donald Trump, then a mere New York real-estate developer, stoked tensions by spending thousands of dollars on four full-page adverts in New York newspapers reading: "Bring Back the Death Penalty, Bring Back Our Police!"

Stephen Colbert Goes Off on New York Post for Deleting E. Jean Carroll Trump Rape Story
CBSTuesday night, on the eve of broadcasting live during the Democratic debates, The Late Show's Stephen Colbert took on President Trump's "very, very bad" response to writer E. Jean Carroll's allegation that the then-real estate tycoon raped her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-‘90s.

"I'll say it with great respect: Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?" Trump responded.

"So it didn't happen because she's not his type," offered Colbert. "That is the sound of a man realizing in mid-sentence that he's not talking to Billy Bush."

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.

Trevor Noah Unloads on Trump's ‘She's Not My Type' Rape Defense Against E. Jean Carroll
Comedy CentralAt the end of his regular "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That" segment Tuesday night, The Daily Show's Trevor Noah said he "had to make time" for one important news story about President Trump.

"For the 22nd time, Donald J. Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct," Noah said, referring to the rape allegation from writer E. Jean Carroll. "That's almost one accusation for each Democrat running." 

The rest of the segment was nearly devoid of jokes as Noah warned against the impetus to "brush" aside the claims. "Sometimes people don't even listen," he said. "But 22 times is pretty high. You realize Boeing had two planes go down and they were forced to ground the entire fleet because people were like, maybe we should investigate what's going on here."

You Think It's Hard to Run Against a Woman, Bernie Sanders? Try Running as One.
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/ShutterstockTurns out Joe Biden isn't the only presidential candidate making tone-deaf comments guaranteed to provoke key Democratic constituencies. Enter Bernie Sanders, who postulated Friday that Elizabeth Warren is gaining on him in part because "there are a certain number of people who would like to see a woman elected." The idea that Americans—even progressive Democrats—are so eager for the coming matriarchy that it's an obstacle for a man like Bernie is laughable, and demonstrably false. 

According to a Morning Consult poll, Bernie supporters overwhelmingly break for Biden as their second choice. Somehow the woman with whom the Democratic-Socialist senator is ideologically closest loses his voters to the most conservative candidate in the field. Twenty-six percent of Berniecrats told an Emerson poll earlier this year that they would even choose Trump in a general election. Meanwhile, Warren still has to fight to win over voters who should be her natural base: women who say they like her, but worry that she can't win. This self-fulfilling prophecy was captured in
