In a hilarious send-up of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s tendency to trot his wife, Melania, out on the campaign trail, Funny or Die made a sketch starring Gina Gershon as Mrs. Trump, a Slovenian model.
After rejoicing about winning on “Superbowl Tuesday,” Melania complains about traveling to Arkansas on two private jets, one without a hot tub.
She then thanks America for letting an immigrant like her settle there, but points out she is from the “white supermodel” part of the world, as the crowd cheers.
“I became citizen by playing by the rules, the rules everyone must play by,” she says. “I get work visa as bikini model and marrying a wealthy real estate magnate who always wins and will make America win at being America!”
Watch the sketch, as posted by Funny or Die, here:
Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Russian Twitter propaganda predicted 2016 US election polls
But one conclusion was unequivocal: Russia unleashed an extensive campaign of fake news and disinformation on social media with the aim of distorting U.S. public opinion, sowing discord and swinging the election in favor of the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
