Trump smokescreen fogs up what is fact or fiction:

As the second disorientating summer of President Donald Trump’s presidency unfolds, it’s becoming hard to work out what is real, what is smoke and what is pure fantasy.

But for Trump, that is the point as he faces imminent and medium-term legal and political challenges that could have grave implications for his presidency and give him every incentive to try to make everyone look the other way.

So after a weekend spent spearing special counsel Robert Mueller on Twitter, Trump, helped by his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, on Monday seeded a new cloud of obfuscation and confusion on Russia, budget brinkmanship and Iran. But the President refused to answer questions about the epic meltdown of his relationship with his former lawyer Michael Cohen who now appears bent on bringing him down
Colbert on Moonves: ‘Accountability is meaningless, unless it’s for everybody:

Stephen Colbert had plenty to say when it came to the allegations of sexual misconduct against his boss, CBS CEO Les Moonves.

Colbert kicked off CBS’ “Late Show” on Monday night joking that he heard over the weekend that there was an article about Moonves in the New Yorker, but acted as though he didn’t know who wrote it. Once he found out that it was Ronan Farrow, Colbert spat out a sip of a drink he took from a coffee cup

“That’s not good,” Colbert said. “Ronan isn’t exactly known for his puff pieces about ‘glamping.'”

Later in the show, Colbert spoke more about Moonves and the #MeToo movement from his desk.

“It’s strange to have to say this, powerful men taking advantage of relatively powerless employees is wrong,” the host said. “We know it’s wrong now and we knew it was wrong then. And how do we know we knew it was wrong then? Because we know these men tried to keep the stories from coming out back then.”

Wildfires like this can get so hot they make pyrocumulus clouds, formations that look like mushroom clouds and can be seen for miles
