Till the End of the Week

Here’s a few things we have for you to finish out the week.

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May went to the White House today to hold talks with President Trump. Earlier, President Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto spoke by phone for about an hour regarding Trump’s planned border wall.

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson signed a bill Thursday banning the most common and safest procedure for performing second-trimester abortions.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley went to the U.N. Friday for the first time and basically threatened the whole world.

The World Food Programme said on Friday that is has halved its food rations for displaced Iraqis due to delays in funding from donor nations.

The whole “Trump tariff on Mexican goods” thing is a lot more complicated and slightly less bad than it sounds. The wall thing, though, is just as bad as it sounds.

Charlie Pierce: Any Democrat who votes for Jeff Sessions for attorney general should be excommunicated from the party.

Some good stuff on the Republicans’ dilemma on their plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Finally, you really should read this story of the woman at the center of the Emmett Till case. You won’t want to. It’s going to suck. But you should.
