Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America like the new sanctions approved against North Korea, and they really like to see China, Russia, and other countries cooperating in this effort to rein in the isolated nation. They rip the New York Times for suggesting Vice President Mike Pence is planning to run for president in 2020 if President Trump does not, all because Pence is doing a lot of fundraising events — and they enjoy a little Kasich-bashing as the same Times article conjectures about Ohio Gov. John Kasich launching a primary challenge to Trump. And they react to Dunkin’ Donuts blaming a confusing store layout for an employee’s refusal to serve two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.
New York cops made a statement Tuesday during the funeral of slain police officer Miosotis Familia. According to Hot Air.com, hundreds of police officers protested New York City mayor Bill de Blasio by turning their backs on him during his speech at the funeral. Familia was brutally gunned down in her patrol car last week by a mentally ill criminal. Her fellow officers are angry with de Blasio after he traveled to Germany one day after the tragedy to protest President Trump, a trip paid for with taxpayer money. The protest was meant to highlight how the mayor missed both an NYPD swearing-in and a vigil held for Familia due to his trip. ~Sarah Schutte
