Space Station Crosses Sun During 2017 Solar Eclipse | NASA
This composite image, made from seven frames, shows the International Space Station, with a crew of six onboard, as it transits the Sun at roughly five miles per second during a partial solar eclipse, Monday, Aug. 21, 2017 near Banner, Wyoming. Onboard as part of Expedition 52 are: NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer, and Randy Bresnik; Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy; and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Paolo Nespoli. A total solar eclipse swept across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. A partial solar eclipse was visible across the entire North American continent along with parts of South America, Africa, and Europe.

Tweetizen Trump - 2017-08-21: "Vacation's Over"

Good morning, Donald! I hope this brand new day, and this brand new week, finds you hale and hearty and ready to serve all the people of the United States with joy, perseverance, and compassion.

Or, we can just turn to your Twitter stream and see what was up this weekend into this morning.

[Being a look at the @RealDonaldTrump Twitter account, with a glance at the @POTUS account, grouped for your topical pleasure.]

===

ALOHA, STEVE

I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton - it was great! Thanks S [4]

Ah, yes, the rise and fall of Steve Bannon. It's interesting, Donald, that someone just reading your tweets would think that Bannon was quietly moving on to some bigger and better service, having fulfilled his mission. It seems it was a bit more tumultuous and abrupt than that [5].

Steve Bannon will be a tough and smart new voice at @BreitbartNews...maybe even better than ever before. Fake News needs the competition! [6]

You do realize that (a) Steve previously held that job at Breitbart (so not "new") before joining you on the campaign trail, and that (b) Breitbart has been going full bore at the "Fake News" in his absence.

On the other hand, buttering Steve up might not be a bad idea, as the possible targets of his next attacks might be closer to home than you might like [1] -- your daughter, yiour son-in-law, even your Friends at Fox. You might have blown that whole "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer" thing, Donald.

===

BOSTON

Looks like many anti-police agitators in Boston. Police are looking tough and smart! Thank you. [7P]

Great job by all law enforcement officers and Boston Mayor @Marty_Walsh. [8P]

So things seemed to start off in your coverage of the large counterprotest in Boston just as one might expect -- railing against "anti-police agitators" and praising the police force there.

But then something weird happened ...

Our great country has been divided for decades. Sometimes you need protest in order to heal, & we will heal, & be stronger than ever before! [9P]

I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate. Our country will soon come together as one! [10P]

Well, one thing that happened is that the rumors of wide=spread anti-police agitation (cough) turned out to be pretty small beer (30 arrests out of 30-40,000 present is pretty trivial) [16]. As to why you abruptly pivoted into a chorus of "Kumbaya," Donald, it's ... well, a bit hard to fathom.

At any rate, it's good to see such a positive sentiment coming from you as a unifier, as someone not completely divisive, who doesn't search for scapegoats to blame his bad press on ...

===

THAT WASCALLY MEDIA!

Heading back to Washington after working hard and watching some of the worst and most dishonest Fake News reporting I have ever seen! [11]

I have to wonder, Donald, how your whole "Fake News" campaign continues to go. I mean, trust in the media as a whole is definitely way down (and in a partisan fashion), though it doesn't seem to be similarly buoying you back up. I just wonder if your constant repetition of the theme [24] helps you, or if it starts to seem like you're just fobbing your own problems off on "bad coverage" and "mean media" and the like.

Jerry Falwell of Liberty University was fantastic on @foxandfriends. The Fake News should listen to what he had to say. Thanks Jerry! [13]

Apparently Falwell said you don't have a racist bone in your body, citing your hard work to help inner city minorities [17]. Not quite sure what "hard work" that is, or how that directly disproves accusations of racism (certainly your earliest days in business weren't promising here [18], and some of your present urban housing customers don't seem all that happy [19]).

Of course, not all Liberty U alums are as thrilled as you are with Falwell's unwavering support of you [25]. But, hey, "sometimes you need protest in order to heal."

You retweeted a comment from some random person (who hadn't posted before three days ago) replying to that tweet:

Every single day the #FakeNews media try to take you down.. You never falter, you always stand strong! [14]

To which you replied:

Thank you, the very dishonest Fake News Media is out of control! [15]

Really? For that you retweeted some random, anonymous tweeter, Donald, and thanked them? That's where your ego needs are?

Um ... you're not going John Miller on us again, are you, Donald? [20]

===

THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS

Today, I signed the Global War on Terrorism War Memorial Act (#HR873.) The bill authorizes ...cont➡️https://www.facebook.com/DonaldTrump/posts/10159689109710725 . [2P]

Because we need a memorial to the amorphous war on terrorism, apparently.

My thoughts and prayers are with the @KissimmeePolice and their loved ones. We are with you! #LESM . [3P]

For those who hadn't read anything about it, this has to do with two police officers killed during a potential drug bust [21].

Oh, and LESM is a hashtag for "Law Enforcement Social Media" [22].

Thoughts & prayers are w/ our @USNavy sailors aboard the #USSJohnSMcCain where search & rescue efforts are underway. [12P]

There has been a rash of US Navy collisions of late, Donald [23]. I know that's not personally your fault, and I'm know someone, somewhere is searching for common themes, but it's something you might want to more visibly look into yourself to report to the American people. If you're going to cover yourself in glory when the US military does cool stuff, you need to be seen taking responsibility and follow-up action when they don't.

===

Your and/or your Social Media Minion also tweeted ...

... about your amazing and decision-filled trip to Camp David.

#ShouldHaveBeenDGU: what an ACTUAL racist attack looks like: a WHITE asshole punches a BLACK Trump supporter, because he was deemed him a race traitor and for holding the 'wrong' views, not sanctioned by his white fugly, pedo-looking fat ass highness.

Paul Joseph Watson on Twitter: "Black Trump supporter viciously punched by violent alt-left terrorist. This is who the mainstream media & the political class now support." https://t.co/Z7dvQVGVnl

So the Jaguars plan comes down to Hope and Prayer. That seems about par for the course in Jacksonville. There was so much hope when Bortles was drafted and I remember some fans felt that Jacksonville had missed their opportunity to get Henne in 2008 who they felt was a better option than the Jaguars had in Gabbert (thiat was probably true but not by much).  No matter how it plays out the Jaaguars don't seem to have a real winning option at QB on the roster today, they don't seem likely to acquire one via trade and that leaves trying to go to the Draft well again after failing on Leftwich, Gabbert, and Bortles in last 3 tries at landing a franchise QB in the early draft.  Hope and Prayer might be the best option at this point.

I spent the last 24 hours traveling to and from the Great American Solar Eclipse. It was an amazing experience! If you ever have the chance to experience totality, I highly recommend it. Watching the light dim and feeling the temp drop, two experiences I won't soon forget.

Third in my set of images from Two Temple Place, the Victorian mansion situated along London's Embankment. This look-up was captured beneath the hall's stained-glass skylight, taking in the sweeping oak-and-mahogany staircase and statues of each of the Three Musketeers, who were the central characters in William Waldorf Astor's favourite novel. Above them is a frieze with more than 80 characters from Shakespeare's plays.
