I’ve often found, on most nights, that if you’re truly too tired to cook, there’s nothing quite like ordering in. Let me paint a picture for you with my words. You get home at 7:30 pm, stomach grumbling, and you remember that there’s no food in the fridge. What are you to do? You have a long shift tomorrow and need to get to sleep in the next few hours. Then, like a bolt of lightning striking the Hill Valley clock tower, you get an idea! Perhaps I’ll order dinner tonight! But then you are hit with a crippling fear of uncertainty. What should I order? Do I want pizza? No…Am I feeling some Chinese food? Not really…Thai food? Yes, let’s do Thai! You grab your smartphone, find a delivery food app and order green curry w/ chicken and an order of fresh spring rolls. You thought about the fried spring rolls, but it’s beach season.
I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. Here’s what you missed in the news yesterday.

Well, yesterday Mueller and Attorney General William Barr shared that the report had been submitted and reviewed, and President Trump was found largely innocent. Now, to be clear, Mueller and Barr are the only two individuals to have seen the investigation’s findings, and the Democratic leadership is not happy with this.

Wait, I Thought He Was A Good Guy?
Let me just say that I apologize for President Donald Trump dominating much of this news segment, its truly not up to me. Moving on, Lawyer Michael Avenatti, famously known for providing legal support to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, was arrested today on federal bank fraud and wire fraud charges. Per the limited details of his arrest, California prosecutors say Avenatti was cuffed for embezzling client money to pay his own bills. According to the Associated Press, he was released on $300,000 bond in New York.
Immediately following his arrest and release, Avenatti tweeted his feelings, as well as a weirdly off-base remark about an upcoming case.
“As all of you know, for the entirety of my career I have fought against powerful, powerful people and powerful corporations. I will never stop fighting that good fight. Tomorrow, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by Nike that we have covered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball…”
