At least you can look cool during this record breaking heat.
Not to bum you out right now, but this apocalyptic heat wave currently gripping the country doesn’t even mark the halfway point of summer. Yep, there are still at least two months of potentially thermometer-busting days yet to come. But don’t get too down about it. Sure, the broiling heat may have you fantasizing about a family trip to the depths of Antarctica. And yes, melted asphalt is difficult to scrape off your shoes. But at least you have an excuse to beef up your summer wardrobe. Because nothing keeps you cooler than killer summer style. Figuratively speaking, of course. Literally you’ll still be sweating off one-third of your bodyweight. Don't fret though, here’s a list of threads for under a C-note to keep your hot-weather look on point.
Sarah: Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council’s top Ukraine expert, told lawmakers that after attending Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s inauguration in May as part of a delegation led by Energy Secretary Rick Perry, that next was debriefing Trump and giving a positive account of Zelensky’s vision for Ukraine’s future. “The U.S. government policy community’s view is that the election of Zelenskyy and the promise of reforms to eliminate corruption will lock in Ukraine’s Western-leaning trajectory, and allow Ukraine to realize its dream of a vibrant democracy and economic prosperity,” Vindman said in his opening statement, But he was instructed at the last second not to attend the debriefing. Vindman told lawmakers, Trump’s advisers worried it might confuse the president: Trump believed at the time that Kashyap Patel, a longtime Nunes staffer who joined the White House in February and had no discernible Ukraine experience or expertise, was actually the NSC’s top Ukraine expert instead of Vindman. Vindman testified that he was told this directly by his boss at the time, NSC senior director for European and Russian affairs Fiona Hill. Hill told Vindman that she and national security adviser John Bolton thought it best to exclude Vindman from the debriefing to avoid “an uncomfortable situation,” he said.
