What the White House is Talking About:
The visit today from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. 

What the White House Press Corps is Talking About:
Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence take last-minute/last-ditch meetings with members of Congress in the hopes of pushing through health care. 

Also, We’re Kind of Talking About that Melania Tweet:
What was with that weird Twitter incident last night? Apparently, the official @MELANIATRUMP account liked a tweet from a writer who posted this:

The like was later removed. The mystery is whether she really liked it? Was it an accident? Did someone hack her account? So. Many. Questions. FLOTUS’ spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, told the New York Post’s Gabby Morrongiello, “the first lady wasn’t aware, until I brought it to her attention." 

Ivanka Trump’s Book Panned by The New York Times:
The New York Times giveth, and The New York Times taketh away. In the morning, the newspaper posted a lengthy look at Ivanka’s role inside the West Wing, with an emphasis on how she operates, what her goals are, and how she might help shape a Trump administration. But in the afternoon, book reviewer Jennifer Senior pubbed her fairly scathing, sarcasm-laced take on Ivanka’s new book, “Women Who Work," calling it “a strawberry milkshake of inspirational quotes." My colleague, Betsy Klein, spent yesterday reading the book (really, I watched her) and she came up with this list of 19 things Ivanka wants you to learn from it. 

Our Daily Melania — That Time Pamela Anderson Gave Her a Coat:
Let’s go back a bit first, shall we? In February, actress and Playboy model Pamela Anderson sent Melania Trump this faux fur coat, with personalized label, thanking her for wearing Ralph Lauren, a non-fur using designer, on Inauguration Day. Anderson has long been PETA’s most recognizable celebrity champion.

Today, Anderson posted this photo on her Twitter account; it’s a thank you note from Melania for the fur. 

I asked the first lady’s spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, whether the first lady has stopped wearing fur? Mainly because images like this one, of her in a fur hat at Fashion Week in 2007, are burned into my memory:

Grisham said: “The first lady sent a nice thank you note after receiving a gift, as is common practice for her. SHE DOES NOT WEAR FUR." (Ok, I added the all-caps but only so you understand how major that is).

Also, fun fact from this whole episode: Anderson apparently is a buddy of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. 

Michelle Obama Tweets a Tiny Bit of Shade:
Ahead of her first post-White House joint appearance with her husband today, Michelle Obama tweeted this in support of the Barack Obama’s yet-to-be-built  presidential center.

Michelle is pretty obviously clapping back to the Trump administration for news this week that it had slashed funding for her Let Girls Learn initiative.

What Washington is Talking About:
FBI Director James Comey is testifying today in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, coming the day after Hillary Clinton him blamed him in part for her loss. Comey said he’s “never" been an anonymous source and won’t say whether there are investigations into leaks about President Trump.

What America is Talking About:
American Airlines is cutting legroom on new aircraft. On three rows, the distance between seats will be 29 inches, down from 31 inches, and other seats in economy will be 30 inches.

3 Things We Learn From This Photo of Steve Bannon’s Whiteboard:
We’ve known from earlier reporting that Steve Bannon has in his office a whiteboard with more than 200 campaign promises from Trump written on it. Now, thanks to a photo tweeted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, we can see the board. This is what we learn from it.

  1. The first promise on the board, “Repeal and replace Obamacare," is still unfulfilled.
  2. Bannon seems aware that Trump’s straightforward plan to make Mexico pay for the border wall won’t be so straightforward. Written on the board is “Build the border wall and eventually make Mexico pay for it," (the “pay for it" part is visible in another photo Boteach tweeted) — emphasis on “eventually." But notably, he does say “wall" and not “fence."
  3. He checked off some promises that haven’t actually been fulfilled, like “Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions" and “Suspend the Syrian refugee program."

Why Hillary Clinton Won’t Go Away:
Clinton spoke at two events in New York yesterday, an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women event, and a 100th anniversary gala for Planned Parenthood, and she made a lot of news. A Clinton insider told CNN “she is not running for anything, but she’s just not hiding," in case you were wondering why she keeps popping up.

Clinton almost reminded me of Trump, during her comments. She took responsibility for losing before promptly blaming everyone but herself for losing, she said she was part of “the resistance," and she bragged about winning the popular vote, saying, “Remember, I did win by more than 3 million votes than my opponent. So, it’s like … really?" It was HRC unplugged.

She has not one, but two books in the works, so expect to see more Clinton the rest of the year.

Tiffany Trump With That “Women Who Work" Promo:
She celebrated the release of sister Ivanka’s book last night on Instagram with a casually-posed, hair-gently-blowing-in-the-breeze snap, writing, “I can’t wait to start reading it!"

Don Jr. and Lara, the wife of Eric, also posted about the book on Insta.

Facebook Beefs Up Video Monitoring:
The social network is hiring 3,000 to monitor live video after a slew of violent live streams showing murder, suicide, and abuse were posted and made headlines. Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement on his page this morning, writing, “These reviewers will also help us get better at removing things we don’t allow on Facebook like hate speech and child exploitation."

Must Watch:
This Onion video of a man from a small steel town in Pennsylvania who regrets his vote for Trump after reading 800 pages of queer feminist theory has nearly 5 million views on Facebook. ???
