Trump’s boss act doesn’t always work:
Back in the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump was asked who advised him on foreign policy and he answered: “My primary consultant is myself.”
Fifteen months into his presidency, the consequences of that defining character trait of always needing to be boss are becoming clear — and it doesn’t always work out to Trump’s advantage.

Stephon Clark shot seven times, official autopsy finds:
Stephon Clark, an unarmed Sacramento man killed by police in March, was shot seven times, an autopsy released by the Sacramento County coroner says.
The results differ from an autopsy done by a doctor hired by the Clark family. That report said Clark was shot eight times by police on the night of March 18.
The official autopsy says three bullets hit Clark in the back. Another bullet struck Clark in the chest, one struck the back of the right arm, one hit him in the left thigh and another pierced his neck.
Dr. Gregory D. Reiber, who reviewed the autopsy for the county, said Dr. Bennet Omalu, who performed the independent autopsy, mistook one exit wound for an entrance wound.
