Something really wrong inside this White House

Grin Ivanka apparently unfazed by the reports of a fight between her and Bannon flashed a wide smile as she walked from her house to the Secret Service SUV waiting for her

"I think it was less about that part of it and whether or not somebody who is actively trying to undermine the executive branch of the government and a dually elected president of the United States", Sanders responded.

Business Insider reported Monday that Woodward's book on the Trump White House, which comes out Tuesday, contains a passage about the fallout from Trump's press conference in which he declared "both sides" were to blame for the violence that left one counter-protester dead. He has insisted he has the absolute right to shut down any federal investigation, even into his own actions, so it's therefore impossible for him to break the law by obstructing justice.

But he told NBC that until Trump he had "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on".

Asked later whether the White House would list all the things in Woodward's book that are wrong, Sanders said such an exercise "would be a complete and utter waste of our time, so no".

Wildfire closes key California highway through the weekend
Drivers on I-5 in northern California got a big scare this week as towering flames raged on both sides of the highway. A highway running the length of California remains closed near the OR border where a wildfire continues to rage.

When a reporter asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the 25th Amendment, she shut down that line of questioning really quick. Woodward said, adding that the comments by the administration officials "are political statements to protect their jobs".

Over the course of his tempestuous first year in the White House, nothing seemed to drive President Trump to distraction so much as the thought of the special counsel, Bob Mueller, and his team of investigators "digging through my whole life and finances".

Asked whether the administration is attempting to ferret out the culprit, Sanders said the staff is "focused on things that actually matter".

Trump spent the weekend complaining about the book as well as the op-ed writer.

Florence becomes a hurricane; 2 other storms gain strength
The latest models on Saturday show that it's becoming less likely the storm will veer north and miss the mainland US entirely. The second week of September is the peak of hurricane season, so the flurry of activity is no surprise to forecasters.

Trump tweeted Monday that he has been subjected to "Phony books, articles and T.V. "hits" like no other pol has had to endure". Mattis then allegedly turned to an aide and said he would ignore Trump's demand.

Trump has also said that the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution does not apply to him. While the president expressed annoyance that Barack Obama was taking credit for the nation's economic success, he told one adviser that the former president's increased visibility would give Trump more chances to attack a figure who remained very unpopular with his base.

In a series of Tweets Monday, the president continued to lash out at Woodward personally and his book's portrayal of Trump as a foul-mouthed and bumbling egotist. "If that person had come to me while I was working on this book or if it were someone I interviewed I would say, 'I need specifics.' The building blocks of journalism, of truth, are specific incidents". Democrats can't stand losing. One of the most unsafe incidents involved Trump's obsession with the 28,000 troops the US has stationed in South Korea, and the $3.5 billion a year the USA pays to keep them there, Woodward explained, quoting Trump as saying: "I don't know why they're there".

Searing Trump op-ed sets off wild guessing game on author
So is the fact that the author of the op-ed was willing to say so in one of the nation's most influential newspapers. Even the Washington Post , no defender of the president, called the op-ed old news, and a "PR stunt".
