Staffers in the Trump White House largely find themselves estranged from the Washington, D.C. social scene.

No one will date them, and some restaurants won’t serve them.

The primary safe space for thirsty young Trumpers has been the hotel bar at the Trump Organization’s hotel inside the Old Post Office building at 1110 Pennsylvania Avenue, a few blocks from the White House.

Residents of the District of Columbia filed a complaint challenging President Donald Trump’s liquor license based on his “bad character,” reports Huffington Post.

Like a lot of states, Washington’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board has provisions requiring that licensees not be criminals. A citizen complaint goes over the many things Trump has credibly been accused of, pointing to “Mr. Trump’s lack of good character.” The complaint points out that Trump has been accused of sexual assault and paid $25 million to settle claims of fraud against Trump University.

Washington’s ABC Board—made up of seven residents of the city, where Trump won just 4percent of the vote—will hold a hearing on the challenge this coming Wednesday, and HuffPo says a decision is expected the following day.

If Trump loses his liquor license it could mark the end of his $100 martinis and force Stephen Miller out to the wolves.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.

Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.

Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.

Chad Wolf’s authority is ‘illegitimate’: Hispanic Caucus chairman demands DHS chief ‘resign in disgrace’

Published

Immigrant rights groups and Texas Democrats are urging a review on the legality of Trump administration immigration policies after a government watchdog found two of the White House’s top immigration officials are not legally eligible to serve in their respective positions.

The Government Accountability Office on Friday determined that Chad Wolf, acting Department of Homeland Security secretary, and Ken Cuccinelli, a senior official performing deputy secretary duties, aren’t legally qualified to hold those posts.

United We Dream, an advocacy group pushing for immigration reform, said the GAO’s conclusion calls into question the latest guidance from the DHS on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that was initiated in 2012.
