It was only dual days ago that our newsletter suggested that it could be “a still week in politics.”
That still was been cracked by a singular criticism — a apocalyptic warning — done by President Trump about a chief weapons module in North Korea.
Good morning from a state capital. I’m Sacramento Bureau Chief John Myers, and a criticism by a boss was done during an eventuality that was ostensible to be about a nation’s opioid drug crisis.
But as we’ve seen so many times before, it’s a unscripted Trump that overshadows what’s differently ostensible to be on his agenda.
THE ‘FIRE AND FURY’ AND HOW IT’S PLAYING
“They will be met with glow and fury, like a universe has never seen.” It was that sheer warning from a boss that is now pushing a news cycle in American politics.
As a organisation of reporters creates clear, a criticism took some troops leaders by warn and came on a heels of reports that North Korea has grown a chief warhead that can lay atop an intercontinental ballistic missile.
Meanwhile, Barbara Demick has a pointy FAQ on a issue. What happens if a “fire and fury” begins?
(By a way, Trump did get behind to articulate about a nation’s opioid problem. He suggested law coercion efforts are a pivotal partial of a solution.)
THE QUICK POLITICAL ROUNDUP
The second-in-command during a State Department tried to boost spirit of a agency’s workers on Tuesday during an hourlong meeting.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was seeking common ground with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
There are reports that some sovereign scientists are disturbed a Trump administration will try to conceal a new news on meridian change.
Before his warning on North Korea, Trump had been busying himself in a fight of difference with a Democratic senator over Vietnam.
And on a Russia investigation, California’s northernmost congressman calls it “a garland of crap.” Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-Chico) offers that criticism in a discuss with The Times’ Phil Willon.
OF LAMALFA AND LIEU
LaMalfa’s criticism was done after a city gymnasium eventuality he hold early Monday morning in his district — a moving setting, where a male vicious of a GOP politician’s opinion on medical changes pronounced this:

Javier Panzar spoke with Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) when he hold an eventuality in Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher’s Orange County district. As one of a informal clamp chairs in a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Lieu helps a celebration with House races in California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Alaska and Hawaii.
Lieu pronounced he isn’t disturbed there are so many candidates using in rival districts. “We are going to have a lot of disorderly primaries in a lot of these districts. But during a finish of a day there will be a clever ubiquitous choosing candidate,” he said.

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR CALIFORNIA’S ‘SANCTUARY STATE’ BILL?
When lawmakers lapse to a state Capitol in reduction than dual weeks for their final scurry to a finish of a 2017 session, maybe no check will dawn incomparable than a offer to extend “sanctuary” supplies to all communities opposite California.
But what changes competence Gov. Jerry Brown need to welcome it? He suggested final weekend that a offer needs work. On Tuesday, a state’s absolute organisation of sheriffs pronounced it’s operative with Brown on probable amendments. The question: Will legislative Democrats go along?
