Good Monday morning and Happy Columbus Day!
Here is what's on the president's agenda today:
- The president delivers remarks at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida
- President Trump participates in the swearing-in ceremony of the Honorable Brett M. Kavanaugh as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
I have a holiday version of the Briefing for you this morning.
Immediately after the contentious Kavanaugh vote in the Senate on Saturday, Kavanaugh and family snuck into the SCOTUS building to get sworn in. A more formal swearing-in with the president in will take place this evening. The #resistance was not pleased about Kavanaugh's confirmation and swearing-in -- watch this video from Benny Johnson:
We've seen a whole lot of crazy these last few weeks. It's only going to get worse as the election approaches. I hope you are all ready.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world...
The growing unrest in Iran might just be the most underreported major story of 2018.
Tapper isn't stupid. So when he says something this stupid, I can only assume that it's out of malice.
This is a solid campaign spot.
Since we're mocking some Taylor Swizzle...
Here's my absolute favorite cover of "I Knew You Were Trouble."
Taylor Swift can support Democrats, if she really likes socialism, likes political harassment, dislikes civility, or thinks people shouldn't be considered "innocent until proven guilty" ... but she should NOT have lied about Marsha Blackburn.
