Melania Trump: Hardest part of being first lady is ‘opportunists who are using my name’:
Melania Trump said the hardest thing she has to deal with as first lady is feeling like there are people in the media and in the public who trade on her name to advance their own careers.
“I would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves, from comedians to journalists to performers, book writers,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday when asked what has been the hardest thing about being first lady.
“Does it hurt?” Hannity asked.
“It doesn’t hurt. The problem is they’re writing the history and it’s not correct,” Trump responded.
Trump’s former friends flip as he faces a new reality:
The schemes employed to get President Donald Trump into the Oval Office are closing in on him, and he’s frustrated at his predicament.
His former fixer has now been sentenced to prison and his tabloid friend’s company landed an immunity deal. Trump separately admitted that his campaign did have interactions with Russians, which, even if it is the “peanut stuff” he claims, is an important shift from the blanket denials he had made previously.
The threads — hush money for claims of affairs and interactions with Russians — are becoming impossible to keep separate. But the pattern is clear: Schemes Trump repeatedly denied were hatched to help him get elected keep being proved true, and former friends and members of his inner circle keep heading to jail.

How three men created a $1 billion salad chain:
When Jonathan Neman, Nathaniel Ru and Nicolas Jammet met as freshman at Georgetown University 15 years ago, they bonded over food.
But it wasn’t about their favorite pizza or cereal. They yearned for healthy, affordable meals they could get on the go.
“It was this nagging question that we constantly had, ‘Where do we eat, where do we eat?'” recalls Neman. “We wanted a place that was healthy, delicious, affordable, convenient and fit our lifestyle and our values. [We] couldn’t find it.”
In August 2007, a few months after they graduated, the three decided to fill that void by opening Sweetgreen, a quick-service restaurant serving healthy salads and meals in a bowl.
