Good Morning, it’s Monday, 31 July 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Today is the first day of the rest of the Trump presidency. The White House–which has suffered an incredible streak of bad press, bad legislation, internal conflict, inappropriate tweets, ineffective policy initiatives, and general bad manners in public (who knows what goes on in private)–tries a re-set today, with General John Kelly moving into the role of Chief of Staff replacing Reince Priebus, former head of the RNC, who resigned(or was booted out) last Friday. Plenty of questions about how this will work out but let’s hope for the best.
Russia, responding to a slate of severe new sanctions passed by the U.S. Congress, has retaliated by saying that the U.S. must reduce their diplomatic corps by 755 people, among other new measures. It’s the international equivalent of a relationship breakup–“I’m not talking to you anymore”. That’ll solve it.
Today is National Avocado Day–maybe you grab some chips and guacamole to celebrate.
Bernhard Langer won the Senior British Open; it’s his 10th senior Majors title. He’s been very good for a very long time.
