The Wednesday Read: Family Separations, Zinke & Socks, & Sir Paul

The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision. – Helen Keller

Today’s commentary deals with these issues:

  • Family Separations
  • Zinke & Socks
  • Hey Beatles Fans

Family Separations:

Overnight, Fox News and other news organizations reported that a federal judge in California ordered the U.S. Border Patrol to stop separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border and to reunite families already separated within 30 days. Any children younger than 5 must be reunited within 14 days of Tuesday’s ruling, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego ruled.

Sabraw is an appointee of President George W. Bush, so there’s that.

I don’t care if family separation happened before in other administrations, it’s just plain wrong. It needs to stop now.

Zinke & Socks:

The Associated Press reported that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke deleted a photo of himself wearing socks with President Donald Trump’s face and the slogan “Make America Great Again” after multiple groups said he was violating federal law. Zinke later apologized and re-posted the photo with “Make America Great Again” blacked out, saying he had not realized it could be viewed as a political slogan.

Zinke was acting like he was in middle school with his new “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) socks. I can’t wait for Zinke to show us his new MAGA backpack…

Hey Beatles Fans:

Late night talk show host James Corden does carpool karaoke on his show. Recently he headed to Liverpool for a special day with Paul McCartney. They spent the day exploring the city of Paul’s youth, visiting his childhood home where he wrote music with John Lennon, performing songs in a local pub and of course driving around singing a few of Paul’s biggest hits (The Late Late Show with James Corden):
