General Kelly has one of the world's toughest jobs: keeping President Trump off Twitter. One slip up and he could put the world at risk of nuclear holocaust. We've all been there, man. The already beleaguered Chief of Staff has had a particularly challenging time the past few weeks, between trying to convince his boss to denounce white supremacists (whomp whomp, Trump didn't quite listen to that) and discouraging him from starting a war with North Korea.

Seven of these fatalities were in Sonoma County alone. The city of Santa Rosa, population 175,000, was especially hard hit by the Tubbs Fire.
President Donald Trump, his wife Melania, and a host of senior White House officials departed Friday for Trump's first overseas trip since taking office. He'll head to Saudi Arabia first and then make stops in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Vatican City, Brussels, and Sicily over the course of his nine-day trip. Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence stayed behind in D.C., where he has the delightful task of quietly weathering the onslaught of scoops regarding the Trump administration's interactions with Russia. But before he does that, he did drop by the White House to see Trump and his associates off. This leads us to the question: What's Mike Pence thinking about in this photo?
