August 21, 2018 | Trump’s bad day, Earthquakes, Injuries, and Ben Affleck

Domestic

  • Trump’s personal lawyer and his campaign manager were both found guilty with several crimes within minutes of one another. Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to 8 counts of fraud and tax evasion. He also stated that the President not only knew about a hush payment but also ordered the payments. Trump’s campaign manager was also charged with 8 counts of fraud, but his trial did not involve the President directly. Still, both are large blows to the White House and the nation will await a response.
  • Trump’s twitter has been active, posting several things since the verdicts, leaving a huge elephant in the room.
