FORGOT PASSWORD. Why Hawaii’s governor didn’t tweet about the incoming missile.
STORMY DANIELS. Trump paid off Stormy Daniels after the election? “Given that the payment made from the Trump campaign to Trump Tower Commercial LLC was for roughly the same amount that Essential Consultants LLC paid to Daniels — and given the fact that the payout occurred just one month after the 2016 presidential election ended — this transaction is sure to raise questions over whether campaign funds were used to cover the costs of paying off a porn star.”
TONY PERKINS. Trump gets a “mulligan” on affair with porn star. “You get a do-over here.”
WHAT ME WORRY? Trump says he’s not at all concerned that Jeff Sessions spoke with Robert Mueller. “Trump’s comment comes after the Justice Department confirmed that Sessions was interviewed last week as part of Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

THE WALL. Chuck Schumer withdraws offer of big spending boost on Trump’s wall: “The Senate minority leader, through an aide, informed the White House on Monday that he was retracting the offer he made last week to give Trump well north of the $1.6 billion in wall funding Trump had asked for this year, according to two Democrats. And now they say Trump will simply not get a better deal than that on his signature campaign promise.”

TORONTO. Police criticized for promoting fear in the community over gay murders: “They’re telling us not to be afraid of something we should be afraid of, and telling us to be afraid of something we shouldn’t be afraid of,” he said. “It ties death to gay sexuality which is very old rhetoric.”
SHROPSHIRE, UK. White supremacist planned attack on Pride event with machete, court hears: ‘A white supremacist with “a deep-seated hatred of black, Jewish, Muslim and especially gay people” was planning a “murderous attack” on a Pride event using a machete and an axe, a court has heard. Ethan Stables, 20, was planning acts of terrorism against groups he hated, prosecutors told Leeds Crown Court.
