I don’t know what to say.

Here’s all the shit we couldn’t cover today:

  • The Trump administration is looking into erecting tent cities in El Paso, Texas to house up to 5,000 unaccompanied minor children separated from their parents as a result of the Trump administration’s horrifying policies. Yes, that’s correct, we’re putting children in camps now, because so many of them have been ripped from their families that the detention centers are filling up. It’s 104 degrees there today.

  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is launching a new office to strip people of citizenship who cheated during naturalization proceedings. [AP]
  • Just to reiterate, Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un was incredibly weird. [Politico]
  • Trade advisor Peter Navarro apologized for suggesting that the Prime Minister of Canada belongs in hell. [CNN]
  • Larry Kudlow is recovering from a heart attack. [New York Times]
  • George H.W. Bush became the first former U.S. president to turn 94. [CNN]
