Cheerio, Chelsea: Clinton brings baby boy
Aidan and daughter Charlotte on their first
trip abroad as family touches down in
London ahead of European vacation

Daily Express [UK], by Chris Spargo

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky managed to once again avoid the horrors of a five-day work week, this time by heading off to London on a family vacation. The pair were seen making their way through Heathrow Airport on Thursday, with Marc pushing Charlotte through the crowds on a luggage cart while Chelsea held Aidan in a Baby Bjorn. This is one of the few times that Aidan has been seen since his birth in June of last year, and the infant seemed happy as could be while taking in his surroundings at the airport. The eternally cheerful Charlotte also seemed excited for

As Don Surber said, “a holiday from their holiday” when the dynamic duo were spotted in the Hamptons without their shopping carts. Now a vacation away from their holidays.

OK. I looked at the photos. Cute daughter who resembles neither of them. Son too young to tell and being carried so hi face is squished against Chels. Slightly panicky eyes make one think he might have had concerns about breathing. Moms was busy posing for camera.

As one commenter said below the article, they always look as though they need baths. Another added “a change of clothes”. Slobs.

I did notice one puzzling thing. Chels appears to have Bubba’s hands.

I imagine they flew First Class.

So why do they all look so grungy and dirty?frumpy and dumpy? That was the case in the last photo set from the Hamptons, too.

Don´t like being catty like this. But these people are always thrusting themselves into our lives.

The only person who seemed happy was Chelsea. Someone must have been saying something to make her smile.

Remember how often Hillary would show up at some event looking haggard, dirty hair, horrible make-up job, frumpy attire, and other times put together fairly well?

My impression is that they all have poor hygeine and probably have dirty homes.

not fair of me, is it?

Who is paying for their vacation? Neither one of them work. What ever happened to the 300 million dollars he lost when he ran that Hedge Fund? I wish the Daily Mail would stop publishing stories and pictures of them and the Kardashians and all the movie stars posing like porno stars? I am tired of seeing their nude bodies all over the place? Guess they have put the Playboy magazines of the world out of business.

BRITISH officials will jet to the US next week to lay the ground for a post-Brexit trade deal, in a major boost for Theresa May. US and UK officials will meet in Washington on July 24 and 25 to “prepare ground” for a future trade deal. It will be the first meeting of the US-UK trade and investment working group, with “commercial continuity” also on the agenda. The meeting was confirmed by a US official, who said Theresa May’s International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will be present. The official, who asked to remain unnamed, said: “The early

President Donald Trump pledged that the ´full truth will be known´ about America´s election systems ´and ´exposed if necessary in the light of day´ at a meeting of his voter fraud commission on Wednesday. Trump said in a surprise appearance before the commission that he authorized a national review of the nation´s ballot boxes in response to allegations of fraud, ´sometimes having to do with very large numbers of people in certain states,´ that supporters came to him with during his Oval Office campaign. The president said that more than 30 states have agreed to turn over their voter data to the

Rosie O´Donnell has been one of President Trump´s most vocal and outspoken critics since long before he even announced he was running for office, but her latest attack on her longtime foe went too far according to some. Over the weekend, the former talk show host posted a link to a new game that allows users to kill President Trump four different ways: pushing him off a cliff; pushing him into a volcano; pushing him into a manhole; and pushing him into the mouth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The games is called ´Push Trump Off A Cliff,´ and in addition

As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was also anti the Magnitsky Act, the policy that Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya lobbied against during her meeting with Donald Trump Jr and other campaign aides at Trump Tower. And as a presidential candidate, Clinton tried to make sure her early position on these sanctions weren´t connected with a speech her husband gave in Moscow in 2010, according to Fox News, which earned ex-President Bill Clinton $500,000. ´With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC´s opposition to the Magnitsky bill [to] a $500,000 speech that WJC

A retired chief of the Australian Defence Force has claimed Australia will soon be invaded, warning of the increasing tensions in the Asia-Pacific region. Admiral Chris Barrie has said the conflict happening now is similar to the conditions that led to World War 1. ´Australia is plunging headlong into catastrophe and we are utterly unprepared,´ he said in an analysis published by ABC News. ´The time-bomb is ticking and it will explode in our lifetimes.´ The parallels with First World War - Britain the dominant power, Germany the rising and aggressive challenger - are obvious. So too today with the United States and China.

A few days ago we spoke about President Trump’s style of leadership, which is to keep your opponents guessing. Never tell what you plan to do next. That was about the “settlements” and Trump’s advice to Israel to build but to quit yapping about it ahead of time... which only energizes Israel’s enemies. Tipping your hand is the worst sort of diplomacy whether it’s poker or politics – and now let’s talk about moving the United States Embassy to Jerusalem. My guess – and actually it’s more than a guess – is that President Trump will get it done. But he will get

The State Department is expanding its definition of ´close family´ to include grandparents and other relatives that constitute a bona fide U.S. relationship for visa applicants and refugees from six mainly Muslim nations. In response to a federal judge´s order last week, the department on Monday instructed U.S. diplomats to consider grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces and first cousins to meet the criteria for applicants from the six countries to receive a U.S. visa. Those had been omitted by the department after the Supreme Court partially upheld the Trump administration´s travel ban in June. Under the rules applicants

Manchester mosque has been significantly damaged in a suspected overnight arson attack. The Manchester Nasfat Islamic Centre on Droylsden Road caught fire late on Sunday night. Emergency services were called at around 11.40pm and around 30 firefighters worked to tackle the blaze, which is now being treated as suspicious. Images taken by witnesses show flames coming from the roof of the building, lighting up the sky and surrounding houses. A spokesman for the centre said there was no one inside at the time, and that they received a call in the night to say ´it was being attacked´. The exact cause of the

There are a thousand reasons why I loved the Rebbe. Alongside his warmth and Torah wisdom, he was also sagely up to the minute on politics. Somewhere on YouTube (can’t find it now) I heard him talking about the “peace process” – the one from about 20 years ago – and decrying it with such passion and precision that it made you wonder why others can’t see things so clearly. I guess it’s because the Rebbe was the Rebbe just like Einstein was Einstein. The Rebbe said (quoting from the top of my head): “Israel is ready to give up holy Land

Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required. The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has

The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting.

Since Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss to Donald Trump, her donors have strategized with Democratic leadership about how to revive the failing party. Billionaire George Soros held a closed door conference with wealthy donors in November 2016 that addressed how to “take back power” and was attended by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. On the weekend of Trump’s inauguration, David Brock hosted a retreat for the most prolific Democratic donors to figure out how to “kick Donald Trump’s a--.” On July 15, Page Six reported that Sen.

President Trump sat down with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a second discussion at the G-20 summit in Germany this month — a talk the White House never disclosed, according to reports. The talk came hours after their two-hour bilateral meeting on July 7, towards the end of a “couples-only social dinner” at the summit, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN. Trump and Putin conversed in the room where the dinner was being held. “No staff or Cabinet were at the dinner at all, for any of the countries,” Anton said, adding that translators were present.

Target Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell is sounding alarm bells over the state of Hispanic shoppers in the U.S. -- a key growth demographic for many retailers and consumer brands. “The Hispanic consumer in the U.S. is shopping much less,” Cornell said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech event Tuesday in Aspen, Colorado. “They are staying home. They are going out less often.” Cornell didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name, but he talked about a shift in behavior this year and mentioned “border towns” -- where retailers for years have depended on shoppers from northern Mexico for higher revenue.

Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care

If any doubts remained that the Fox News channel is continuing to swerve from its conservative roots, they were erased on July 16, 2017 when Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., a principal architect of Obamacare and a barely hinged spin doctor for the Democrat socialist left, appeared on the channel’s signature weekly program Fox News Sunday in his new role as a paid contributor. During the program, the ever arrogant Emanuel jumped on the Resist Trump bandwagon and suggested that President Trump is worthy of being impeached.

Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough ‘women’ or ‘people of color’ in it, according to a review in USA Today. The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nailbiting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality: The trio of timelines can be jarring as you

Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly "miserable" and can´t wait for the next four years to end. A friend of President Trump´s sons told People that Trump Jr. and Eric Trump "never wanted this." “Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable," a source in their circle added. Trump Jr. is facing backlash after news surfaced earlier this month that he took a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer.

In Oregon, a state known for its avid bicycling culture, the state Legislature’s approval of the first bike tax in the nation has fallen flat with riders. Democratic Gov. Kate Brown is expected to sign the sweeping $5.3 billion transportation package, which includes a $15 excise tax on the sale of bicycles costing more than $200 with a wheel diameter of at least 26 inches. Even though the funding has been earmarked for improvements that will benefit cyclists, the tax has managed to irk both anti-tax Republicans and environmentally conscious bikers.
