When a North Korean Missile Accidentally Hit a North Korean City | The Diplomat

On April 28, 2017, North Korea launched a single Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) from Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province (the Korean People’s Army’s Air and Anti-Air Force Unit 447 in Ryongak-dong, Sunchon City, to be more precise)...

Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’: Inside Trump’s White House

Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears — and not of joy.
There was, in the space of little more than an hour, in Steve Bannon’s not unamused observation, a befuddled Trump morphing into a disbelieving Trump and then into a horrified Trump. But still to come was the final transformation: Suddenly, Donald Trump became a man who believed that he deserved to be, and was wholly capable of being, the president of the United States.

Hatch announces retirement, Romney likely to run - POLITICO

Orrin Hatch, the longest-serving Republican senator, announced Tuesday he will not seek reelection in November. The move sets the stage for a likely run for his Utah seat by former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney... President Donald Trump tried aggressively to persuade Hatch to seek another term, orchestrating a visit to Utah in which the president lavished praise on Hatch and had the senator accompanty him on Air Force One.
Trump’s move was aimed in no small part at keeping Romney out of the Senate. During the 2016 campaign, Romney emerged as a de facto leader of the “Never Trump” movement, calling then-candidate Trump a “fraud” and “phony” who was unfit to serve.

YouTuber Logan Paul apologizes for showing dead body in Japan’s ‘suicide forest’ - The Washington Post

Logan Paul, one of YouTube’s biggest stars, treated a video he uploaded over the weekend as the equivalent of a TV sitcom’s “very special episode.” To indicate the seriousness of the matter to his young fans, Paul posted a warning at the beginning, telling viewers who are having thoughts of suicide or self harm to seek help. He also demonetized the video so that he would not earn advertising money off its views.
The now-deleted video was titled, “We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest . . .”, and that is, more or less, exactly what the vlog showed — complete with extended footage of the body of an apparent suicide victim.
