Trump and the Migrant Children
Another week, it seems, another scandal for Donald Trump - as the policy to remove children from their parents at the border appears to have been relaxed, after a week of controversy. It’s a policy which has been met by outcry across the world, and which has been marked by a particularly striking TIME Magazine cover.

Melania Trump and Her Odd Choice of Jacket
Following ongoing controversy regarding Trump and the migrant crisis, US First Lady Melania attended a migrant child detention center - while wearing a jacket that clearly reads ‘I really don’t care do u?’ on the reverse. The move has been criticized heavily - as it seems to be giving across a very negative message - though her President husband has tweeted to suggest the jacket was referring to how much she doesn’t care about ‘Fake News Media’.

Roseanne Without Roseanne
In a move which some rumored could happen - but many thought never actually would - ABC appear to have decided to revive their hit comedy ‘Roseanne’ as ‘The Conners’, following the decision to axe the series after star Roseanne Barr made a number of ill-advised tweets earlier this summer. The series will reportedly continue as the family adjusts to a big change - and will reportedly feature John Goodman and Sara Gilbert among the returning cast.
