The Week in Pictures: Triumph of the Kanye West Edition

I was all set to declare this week’s gallery to be the “Nikki Haley’s Comet Edition,” but that was before Kanye West’s Traveling Medicine Show appeared at the White House on Thursday. That was some weird stuff, to be sure—the kind of thing Vice President Joe Biden might call a “big f—— deal” before an open microphone in the Oval Office, but that’s different because reasons. It is hard to escape the conclusion that Trump does these kind of off-the-wall events precisely to keep the mainstream media off balance, but if some of the polls showing surprisingly high support for Trump among black Americans are correct, it is ominous for Democrats. Meanwhile, Justice Kavanaugh. Just sounds nice to say that.
