The wedding date of Bristol Palin, a reality television personality and the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has been called off, Sarah Palin said in a post on Facebook.

It remained unclear if the nuptials might be rescheduled to a later date.

Bristol Palin announced on her blog in March that she and Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer had gotten engaged. The wedding date was set for May 23.

But on Monday, Sarah Palin said in a message on her Facebook page that the ceremony had been called off.

“They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held,” Sarah Palin’s post said.

An attorney for Sarah Palin declined to comment on whether the wedding had been postponed or canceled completely.

In her Facebook message, Sarah Palin wrote that the Palin and Meyer families would gather in Kentucky on the day the wedding would have been held, but instead will attend a barbecue to celebrate life. Meyer is from Kentucky.

Sarah Palin’s post included a message from a Christian ministry that said, “It’s better to wait a while and have things fall into place than to rush and have things fall apart.”

Bristol Palin, 24, said she met Meyer in 2014 when he came to Alaska to film the reality television show “Amazing America” with her mother, who was the 2008 presidential running mate of Republican presidential nominee John McCain. Bristol Palin appeared in the ABC television competition “Dancing with the Stars” in 2010 and 2012.

Meyer, a Marine veteran, was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. military award for bravery, in 2011 for saving 36 of his comrades’ lives during an ambush in Afghanistan in 2009.

Mick Mulvaney is Trump’s new fall guy on corruption — and Republicans just play along

It's getting increasingly more difficult to keep track of all the new impeachable acts President Trump commits every day. And perhaps even more difficult to imagine the most outrageous thing he can do that the Republican Party would still defend.

This article first appeared in Salon.

It took almost two weeks, but the White House has finally admitting what everyone knew from day one: Trump demanded a quid pro quo from the Ukrainian government before releasing military aid authorized by Congress. Republicans have been denying the obvious, remaining willfully blind to a brazen scheme. That suddenly seems quaint, now that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has confessed on live television that there was a quid pro quo.

The week Donald Trump’s presidency crashed and burned — and Republicans noticed

Published

on

It feels as though every week during the Trump administration is a year and every year a decade. Every day there is a crisis or an outrage or a revelation that takes your breath away. But the underlying dynamics always seem to be the same no matter what. The press reports the story, the Democrats get outraged, the pundits analyze it, the president rages and then Fox and the Republicans all line up like a bunch of robots and salute smartly. Then we reset until the next crisis, outrage or revelation. It's an exhausting cycle that never seems to get us anywhere and it's bred a fatalistic response in many of us: "Nothing matters."

As reported by the BBC's Jon Sopel, Erdo?an called out the president's letter for being out of line with standard diplomatic protocol, and he suggested his country would not forget how the president showed them such little respect.
