We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important and useful information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Saturday, July 23, 2016:
Munich Police are still on the lookout for the three armed suspects in what police have described as a terrorist attack. Three armed men opened fire at a busy shopping mall, killing at least eight people.
Senator Tim Kaine seems to be Hillary’s likely VP pick so far.
Wikileaks has released some 20,000 emails belonging to the Democratic National Committee. Wikileaks has labeled this release “Part I” of a series they’ve called “Hillary Leaks.”
Speaking of those leaked emails, one of them shows that the DNC sought to fix the election in Sanders’s favor: “WikiLeaks posted an email from Mark Paustenbach, the Democratic Party’s national press secretary & deputy communications director, to other staffers discussing how they could create an anti-Sanders narrative the described his campaign in disarray.”
Cincinnati police are investigating one of their own after some questionable comments on social media: The post begins with a message to “all my Afro America friends and family” about interacting with white police officers. “Make sure that you are in a public place ,and comply to all of their commands,because they are looking for a reason to kill a black man. And always keep your hands in the air,and never resist,” it reads….”I’m so tired of cops using these famous words “I was in fear of my life”. I’m praying for Louisiana,” the post says.
Obama sides with Mexico against Trump: President Barack Obama wasted no time Friday delivering another implicit rebuke of Donald Trump on Mexico and immigration, hours after the Republican nominee officially claimed the party mantle to take on presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November. “Let me start by saying something that is too often overlooked, but bears repeating — especially given some of the heated rhetoric that we sometimes hear. The United States values tremendously our enduring partnership with Mexico and our extraordinary ties of family and friendship with the Mexican people,” Obama said at the start of a joint press conference with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Obama gives statement on Munich attacks: “As news reports of a gun massacre in Munich crossed the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, the President of the United States was cracking jokes.”
