The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Police Arrest Man in Macy’s Carnage, Charlotte Police Release Videos and ‘Wandering in the Wilderness’

    Know This: “The King” Arnold Palmer, the gentlemanly star who ushered in golf’s power game and made it a television sport, died at 87. Arcan Cetin, 20, whose posted hometown is in Turkey, is in custody after the Friday Cascade Mall shootings in Washington State that killed five. On the eve of their first debate, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are virtually tied in polls. And Florida Marlins ace pitcher Jose Fernandez, 24, died with two other men in a boating accident off of Miami.

    Watch These: Charlotte, N.C., authorities have released videos of police shooting Keith Lamont Scott, but they don’t conclusively show if he was armed — as police maintain — or not. 

    Remember This: “The American story … of suffering and delight, one of fear, but also of hope, of wandering in the wilderness, and then seeing, out on the horizon, a glimmer of the Promised Land.” That’s what President Obama sees in the new National Museum of African History and Culture in the nation’s capital, which he dedicated yesterday.
