Photo of the day

From Telegraph’s pictures of the day.  This is among the coolest bird photos I’ve seen:

Meet the real-life Angry Bird! This grumpy feathered fella looks just like the one of the hilarious wingless birds from the popular computer game. But catapulting straight towards the camera, the Northern Cardinal looks like he's in no mood for games. The hilarious sulking face was captured by photographer Brian E Kushner in his back yard in Audubon, New Jersey.

Can Trump change?

That’s the question at the heart of Molly Ball’s recent Atlantic article.  I think the evidence so far is, if by “change” you mean actually conduct himself with thoughtfullnes and civility, the answer is a resounding no.  This take from a Republican consultant is so awesome:

The Republicans who oppose Trump are rather bearish on this prospect. To them, the judge controversy proved conclusively that there will be no new-and-improved general-election Trump, and showed they were right all along about his divisive tendencies.

“I am getting I-told-you-so delivered to my house by the truckload every day,” Rick Wilson, the Florida Republican consultant who has vocally opposed Trump from the beginning, told me. “I am eating up the I-told-you-so like a fat kid eats cake.”

Wilson had little patience for the idea that Trump might still turn it around. “He’s 70 years old. He’s a narcissistic sociopath. He’s not going to change,” he said. “There is no better version of Donald Trump, no mindful, serious, presidential version, only the reality-TV, con-man, pro-wrestling dipshit Donald Trump.” [emphasis mine]
