President Donald Trump gave a speech to the graduates of the Naval Academy Friday morning. Then, the president went a step further, offering to shake the hands of every single graduate — more than 1,000 midshipmen. “I was given an option. I could make this commencement address, which is a great honor for me, and immediately leave and wave goodbye. Or I could stay and shake hands with just the top 100,” Trump said, “Or I could stay for hours and shake hands with 1,100 and something. What should I do? What should I do?” Trump then shouted, “Stay! Ok, I’ll stay.”

Finally, we see what a leader in the White House looks like, conducts himself and how proudly he represents us abroad. His love of family, the military and our country should be mirrored in all of us. We would all be the better for it.

Obama would never have done this. Trump is, very much, the best retail politician I've ever seen.

If I had gone through Naval Academy hell ( a rarified place to be) I would be happy just to graduate. If the president of the United States wants to shake my hand, I know a compliment when I see one. President Trump, keep up the great work.

I've been to a few events at the Naval Academy, and each time I tear up. The young people in their uniforms, the respect that each student shows to everyone, and just the patriotic atmosphere is just out of this world. The Naval Marine Corp Stadium has the names of Naval engagements circling the stadium. There are two places everyone should visit if given the chance. One is the Naval Academy, and the other is West Point. Both places make one proud to be an American.

It was amazing to watch. The cadets were coming from both sides of the stage at a pretty good clip; he had to salute and shake hands. He looked like an auto robot, never missed a beat. C Span “lost the feed” at about the midway point. I would have watched to the end! KAG

In 2018, a record turnout of women, minorities and young added 40 House seats to Democratic ranks and made Nancy Pelosi speaker.This, we were told, is the new diversity coalition — women, people of color, millennials — that will take down The Donald in 2020. So, how has the Democratic field sorted itself out half a year later?

Washington, DC, could become the first jurisdiction to restore voting rights for prisoners after a majority of its council-members on Tuesday backed bills to give incarcerated individuals voting rights and the ability to vote via absentee ballots.Council-member Robert White (D) introduced legislation that would give voting rights to “residents convicted and imprisoned for committing felonies.” Another bill would allow D.C. residents in federal prisons to vote with absentee ballots.According to WAMU, “while D.C. felons automatically regain the right to vote once they leave prison, a law dating back to 1955 automatically strips that right upon conviction.”

His remarks at the seventy-fifth commemoration of D-Day at the Normandy American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, France, were gracious, moving, poetic, and delivered in a time zone six hours ahead of the East Coast.Which is too bad. The address deserves a wide audience not only for its content but also because it fits into the larger themes of this presidency.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she’d like to see President Donald Trump “in prison” as she clashed with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting on Tuesday night over whether to launch impeachment proceedings. (Snip) “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Instead of impeachment, Pelosi still prefers to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes, according to the sources.

“The president’s behavior in the Cabinet Room, the Rose Garden, and subsequently was justifiably alarming, but it is about time we recognize that we are dealing with someone who is not capable of thinking rationally—our report on the Mueller report has proven that.
