President Trump 'Somewhat Embarrassed' by Russian Probe

President Donald Trump is 'somewhat embarrassed' by special counsel Robert Muller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, White House chief of staff John Kelly says.

In an interview on NPR's Morning Edition, Kelly was asked if the special counsel's probe leaves a cloud hanging over the White House. "It may not be a cloud, but certainly the President is somewhat embarrassed frankly." Kelly responded. Kelly also suggested that the Russian investigation leaves a lasting affect on Trump's relationship with other world leaders.

Kelly took over as Trump's chief of staff for Reince Priebus last July, hoping to bring order to a chaotic White House. However he's noticed Trump has started to bypass Kelly.

"In retrospect, I wish I had been here from day one," Kelly told NPR. "I think in some cases, in terms of staffing or serving the President, that first six months was pretty chaotic and there were people some people hired that maybe shouldn't have hired some people."

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Cancelled After Five Seasons

After five seasons, Fox revealed the network’s decision to ax one of its veteran sitcom series Brooklyn Nine-Nine Thursday, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The award-winning half-hour-long police comedy, alongside “The Mick” and “The Last Man on Earth”, has been canceled to make room for the incoming fall lineup of freshman television series, which will be announced at the network’s annual Upfronts presentation in New York next week, as reported by CNN.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Brooklyn Nine-Nine, helmed by an ensemble cast featuring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, has garnered critical acclaim for not only its representation of LGBTQ characters but also for its cautious approach in tackling of sensitive societal issues with a humorous undertone.

Black Student at Yale University Interrogated for Taking a Nap

A black Yale University graduate student was confronted by campus police late Monday night. Her crime? Falling asleep on the couch in the common room of the graduate studies dorm.

According to the Yale Daily News, University Vice President of Student Life Goff-Crews sent out an email about the “deeply troubling” incident. She announced that she, Yale Police Chief Ronnell Higgins, and Graduate School Dean Lynn Cooley will be holding sessions soon to help avoid similar incidents.

In the initial report about the burglary, the Los Angeles Times valued the costume at $325,000. Employees at the warehouse “just happened to check” Tuesday and noticed the costume was gone, according to Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Christopher No, who talked the Times.
