.@PressSec begins the first White House press briefing in nearly a month by announcing Trump will be donating his 2018 second quarter salary to the Small Business Administration. #hero
.@AmbJohnBolton announces that he is "announcing that the president has decided that the United States will withdraw from the optional protocol to dispute resolution to the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations."

The drums of war can be heard in the distance.
BOLTON: "We will commence a review of all international agreements that may still expose the US to purported binding jurisdiction dispute resolution in the International Court of Justice"

Bolton is basically announcing that the US is becoming a rogue state.
Bolton dismisses the International Court of Justice as "politicized and ineffective."
.@kwelkernbc: Are you seeking regime change in Iran?

BOLTON: "I'll say it again, maybe you'll listen this time. Our policy is not regime change."
Bolton downplays lack of European support for US hostility toward Iran: "European companies don't want to be caught up in the pressure campaign we are applying."
Bolton derisively talks about "the so-called 'state' of Palestine."
WOW- Sanders unloads on Democratic opponents of Kavanaugh: "They are not opposed to Judge Kavanaugh's judicial views, they are trying to undercut the voice of the American people when they elected Donald Trump"

She then falsely claims there's "no evidence" for Ford's claims!
Sanders says Trump was "just stating facts" when he mocked Ford last night, inciting thousands of his supporters to boo her.
Sanders smears Democrats for "exploiting" Dr Ford, says Senate Democrats hold "all the responsibility"
Sanders can't cite a single thing that's wrong with the NYT's report finding Trump committed tax fraud, but actually spins it as showing that Trump's dad "had a lot of faith" in him 😂

Says Trump won't release his tax returns
Sanders won't even try to explain why she lied about Michael Cohen during a briefing earlier this year
REPORTER: Bloomberg reports that the White House is limiting the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh. Is that true?

SANDERS: If senators had questions, they should've asked them during the hearing.
REPORTER: Trump now says he supports due process. But he called for the Central Park 5 to be executed before trial. Does he only want due process for some people?

SANDERS, DODGING: Not at all!
Sanders' talking point on Trump mocking a sexual assault victim is that it's okay because her allegations are uncorroborated. (There's actually a good bit of corroboration!) thinkprogress.org/kavanaugh-dr-c…
Sanders won't say if Trump still finds Ford's testimony's credible, confirms Trump wants Kavanaugh to be confirmed even without the FBI investigation being completed.
Beyond parody -- Pressed on Trump never siding with sexual assault victims, Sanders points out that that's not true because he sided with Bill Clinton accusers.
Sarah Sanders makes laughable attempt to spin that damning Times story about Trump’s tax fraud thinkprogress.org/sanders-dawsey…
Sarah Sanders tried to spin that bombshell Times story about Trump's tax fraud. It was a disaster. thinkprogress.org/sanders-dawsey…
