In case there's any question about Trump's commitment to church services: Peaceful protestors are tear-gassed so Trump can hold a Bible upside down in front of St. John's. But the Episcopal Bishop of Washington, who has jurisdiction over the church, can't hold a vigil there.

Our president is so brave he’s building a wall around the White House because he’s worried about the optics of hiding in a bunker.

I talked to -- who flew Black Hawk helicopters in Iraq to fight al Qaeda -- about Trump's use of military helicopters to intimidate American protesters. "He is perverting, at best, the role of the military.... Disgusting."
