Tim Scott Schools Trump, Julián Castro Heads to UT, Susan Rice Unmasks Her Reasons

DACA deal or nah? In a game of he said/they said, we break it down below with help from the NYT. Meanwhile, more than 800,000 lives and livelihoods hang in the balance. "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really! … They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security,” Trump tweeted this morning. Ummm … that’s exactly what candidate Trump repeatedly said he’d do on the campaign trail. Direct quote: “They have to go.” Here’s a #TBT reminder -- we’ve got the video. Meanwhile, FL GOP Congressmen Carlos Curbelo and Mario Díaz-Balart are among a group ofRepublicans who have quietly formed their own informal DACA working group to help chart a path forward on immigration. Also, the healthcare battle still wages on as theBernie bandwagon grows and a defeated GOP is taking one last stab at dismantling the Affordable Care Act. Florida will get a visit from the president this morning as he tours the state and participates in a briefing on the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma. Out west, LA has nothing to be Insecure about as they’ve officially been awarded the 2028 Olympic games. Speaking of Insecure and LA, was there really no way for Issa and Lawrence to work it out? We’re still sad about it. Lastly, we’ve seen the Future.And he’s singing with Cher.  That has nothing to do with anything. It’s just an image we can’t get out of our mind.
