Newly minted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave his first major policy speech, aimed at how the US will move forward with its policy toward Iran. Before beginning, Pompeo took a deep breath. In the words of modern philosopher Ma$e, "Breathe, stretch, shake, let it go," Mr. Secretary.

It’s appropriations season, which means Cabinet secretaries are out in full force explaining why they need money. If they need any inspiration, I believe the "Collected Text Messages of College Students to Their Parents" is available in any mother’s home. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ reaction here, by the way, indicates how it usually goes for most college kids.

I live for a sports visit to the White House. ( Ball is life, after all.) And despite what some people might say, NASCAR is a sport. Driving in most crowded places is a sport, honestly. NASCAR just kicks it up a notch. At an event honoring Martin Truex, Jr., President Trump cradled this helmet like a baby. You have to be gentle with headgear designed to withstand at least 100 times the force of gravity.

I think Sen. Pat Leahy was spending his time before a hearing talking about taking pictures. Either that or he was recapping the Netflix show GLOW. I’m going to go with the photography angle on this one, seeing as Leahy is a noted photo bug.

Sen. Chuck Schumer and some of his colleagues pointed out that gas is very expensive right now. Literally pointed it out. The best part is that, as of Friday, the gas station they stood in front of was 80 cents more expensive than its nearest competitor. Granted, it was the closest one to the Senate office buildings, and who could blame them for sticking close to the office? It’s hot out.
