If you thought you had a bad week…look at Jeff Sessions

Earlier this week, President Trump disclosed his true feelings about Jeff Sessions to the New York Times, and the comment about the Attorney General has the possibility of going down in history as one of Trump’s most severe personal  insults. Trump told the New York Times that if he had known Sessions would recuse himself from the Russian investigation, he wouldn’t have hired him as one of his top aides in the first place. Ouch. On top of that, the Washington Post reported this week that communication from Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak to Russian officials revealed shocking information concerning his meetings with Jeff Sessions. The ambassador’s report suggested his meetings with Sessions, which took place during campaign season, were about the U.S Presidential Campaign and possible foreign policy with Russia. The report contradicts Sessions’ first statement that he never met with Russians, and his revised statement that he never had “any conversations with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States.” While it isn’t a good week to be Jeff Sessions, you wouldn’t want to be Trump either. I mean, how is he going to justify his anger towards Sessions’ recusal when he thinks the whole investigation is a hoax?

Sean Spicer Resigns

“It’s been an honor & a privilege to serve @POTUS @realDonaldTrump & this amazing country. I will continue my service through August” -Sean Spicer Tweet

After 182 days as the White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer resigned Friday morning. Honestly, that’s a long time considering everything Spicer has been through since day one (you know, the day he held a press conference where reporters couldn’t ask questions). In his short term, Spicer has gained popularity on the show Saturday Night Live as a character played by Melissa McCarthy. Made fun of for his poor relationship with the press, poor relationship with the president, and unhealthy gum chewing habit, Spicer has become a favorite sketch on the show. Spicer apparently resigned due to the hiring of the new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, even though Trump reportedly asked Spicer to stay. Now, Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be filling the position as Press Secretary as she and Scaramucci both begin the process of repairing the rough relationship between the White House and the press.

John McCain Diagnosed with Brain Cancer

Arizona Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with primary glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, after a blood clot was found during a regular physical checkup. The 80 year old underwent a surgery that involved an eyebrow incision to remove the malignant tissue. McCain is now recovering at home with his family and will begin therapy when the surgery heals; radiation and chemotherapy are likely options. According to the New York Times, the median survival of  glioblastoma is 12-18 months. Despite the prognosis, McCain has been spending his recovery time in the outdoors, hoping to get back to work soon.

Shark beats Phelps

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was featured on Discovery’s Shark Week in an epic race against a Great White Shark. Wearing a monofin and wet suit, Phelps attempted to mimic the motion of the speedy creature with the hopes of winning a 100 meter race. Although the 32 year old had a special uniform, it was the shark who won by 2 seconds. However, after the highly anticipated race aired, many viewers were disappointed that Phelps’ opponent was computer generated.
