Historian Anne Applebaum on Trump 'Protest Is Insufficient'

SPIEGEL: Trump has often said that he admires Putin. Will this be a new friendship?

Applebaum: I don't think either of them really has friends. But Trump has openly admired Putin for many years, with no reservations. He even seems to idolize him. Neither his cabinet appointees nor the civil servants in the Pentagon and the State Department feel the same way, however, so we don't know what this admiration will bring.

Returning Old-Ass Library Books

George Washington proved a very bad borrower with The Law of Nations by Emer de Vattel, which the first US president checked out more than 200 years ago and never returned... There may have been an attempt to cover up Washington’s embarrassment. The leather-bound ledger that recorded the loan went missing some time after it was completed in 1792. It was found in a pile of rubbish in 1934.

Donald Trump and the resurrection of the American cowboy

2016 might go down in history as the year we realized we were living in a global Wild West – an unforgiving environment where anarchy reigns. But we’re at a disadvantage to those intrepid settlers who conquered the Old West in the 19th century. They had something we don’t: they had the cowboy.

The White House website is now promoting Melania Trump’s jewelry line

One of the more bizarre changes to the whitehouse.gov website can be found on First Lady Melania Trump’s biography, which also functions as a modeling resume and advertisement for her jewelry.

While the first few sentences feature the typical biographical info, the site also specifically plugs her jewelry line: “In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, “Melania™ Timepieces & Jewelry”, on QVC.”

Alabama found guilty of racial gerrymandering

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that the state of Alabama engaged in unconstitutional racial gerrymandering in at least 12 districts in order to preserve a Republican supermajority. The ruling is a victory for the state’s Legislative Black Caucus, which has been fighting in court for years against voting maps that intentionally limit the voting power of African Americans by packing them into as few oddly-shaped districts as possible.
