Scaramucci praises Breitbart in first interview since communications appointment

Newly-named White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Saturday praised conservative news site Breitbart News and its political editor Matt Boyle during his first interview since being tapped to join the Trump administration.“One of the things Breitbart has done is you've captured the spirit of what's actually going on in the country,” Scaramucci told Boyle during an interview on "Breitbart News Saturday" on SiriusXM.Scaramucci further joked with Boyle that he was surprised the editor had not sent in his resume for West Wing consideration yet.Founded by the late Andrew Breitbart, the conservative news site garnered a reputation for boosting the "alt-right" movement under the leadership of former leader Steve Bannon, who left Breitbart to join Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and now serves as Trump’s chief strategist.Bannon, along with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, is reportedly furious with the president for naming Scaramucci to such a high-ranking role. Sean Spicer resigned as White House press secretary when it was announced that Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, would be joining the administration.President Trump was reportedly sold on Scaramucci for the New Yorker's repeated cable TV appearances where he defended the president and his policies. The president, who just this morning re-upped his disdain for "fake news," is particularly pleased with Scaramucci's ability to extract a correction from CNN for a since retracted story about the financier and alleged Russian connections.“We’re having a rough time with the mainstream media, but last time I checked during the campaign we were having a rough time with the mainstream media and the people see through it,” Scaramucci said.

Branden Grace shoots lowest-ever men’s major round of 62 at the Open

• South African cards eight-under-par 62 in third round at Royal Birkdale• Grace ‘had no idea’ he had achieved feat that has eluded all othersIgnorance is clearly golfing bliss. As Branden Grace tapped in for par at Royal Birkdale’s 18th hole at 3.16pm on Saturday, the most striking aspect was how underwhelmed the South African appeared by what he had accomplished. Even the appearance of vast banks of media representatives was not sufficient for the penny to drop.Grace had become a history maker as the first man to post 62 in a major championship. Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods might be greats of this sport but they never reached that magic figure. Grace has etched his name where legends could not.

Tour de France 2017: Chris Froome set to win fourth title after time trial – live!

Froome extends lead to 54 seconds and will seal victory in ParisVan Vleuten wins La Course by a stretch ahead of DeignanWhatever your opinion on Armstrong, liking his podcast is not a sinEmail Barry or tweet @bglendenning with your thoughts 5.00pm BST A mail from Anthony Lawton: “Everyone, you included, says now that Froome has ‘won’ by being in yellow at the end of today. Why? Is tomorrow not a real race, but just a parade ride into a Paris for the cameras?”Traditionally it’s a procession, Anthony, that hots up in the final 10 kilometres as the teams with sprinters get their ducks in a row to fight out a mightily aggressive finish on the Champs Elysees. Neither Froome nor his team-mates will have anything to do with that. The yellow jersey did change hands on the final day once, in a time trial. Greg Lemond took it off Laurent Fignon and because a Frenchman lost out, the organisers did their damnedest to ensure it never happened again. 4.49pm BST An email from Daniel Mitchell: “Wow, oh wow,” he wows, oh wows. “What a finish! I had twenty quid EW on Bardet so that last ten minutes was me frantically pacing around the flat, shaking. Quick question - should I celebrate now or wait ’til tomorrow? Are the podium places effectively locked?” You can go and collect, Dan. Barring a kidnapping, a particularly bad slip in the shower or a fall down the stairs you’ll get your winnings.

Kushner reports millions in 77 previously 'omitted' assets

Senior White House adviser and son-in-law to President Donald Trump Jared Kushner reported 77 undisclosed assets and more than an additional $10 million in previously unreported holdings, according to revised financial documents filed Friday, which his legal team said were "inadvertently omitted" from prior financial disclosure filings. The Office of Government and Ethics certified the updated financial disclosures listing the unreported assets and holdings as a part of an "ordinary review process," according to the filings. Kushner's newly-reported disclosures revealed that he had sold interest in a New Jersey mall, that he no longer had stake in a company with interest in a Ohio property, that he had a stake worth between $5 to $25 million in a holding company that owned an online real estate investment platform named Cadre and that he owned artwork ranging in worth from $5 million to $25 million.His wife, first daughter Ivanka Trump, meanwhile, disclosed assets worth at least $66 million and an income of at least $13.5 million from last year in separate documents filed Friday.While initial filings showed the couple together held between $240 million and $740 million, the new disclosures show the range to fall between $206 million $760 million. “Jared and Ivanka have followed each of the required steps in their transition from private citizens to federal officials,” the couple's lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, said in a statement.The filings by Trump were her first since accepting an official role within the administration in late March, whereas Kushner was tapped a senior adviser prior to President Donald Trump's inauguration. “Ivanka’s financial disclosure form is still in the pre-certification stage, as she began the process later," Gorelick added.

All the places I’ll never live: a five-bed with mixer taps

I dream of such bathroom comforts as the mixer tap and, if I’m really lucky, underfloor heatingEvery week, a member of generation rent writes about her dreams of property ownershipThe first room I rented was my university dorm: six paces long, and three across, with a single bed, a desk, washbasin and wardrobe. It felt gigantic. It was bigger than my room at Mum’s, and offered such luxuries as not smashing your face on the wall if you rolled over too energetically, and not having to sit disconcertingly close to guests on the bed in lieu of seating. But it was also the gateway to a new universe.Here my life was going to change. At that desk I’d lose myself in the literary greats. Far from the prying eyes of the Asian aunties and uncles of my neighbourhood, I would exercise poor judgment, near daily. Continue reading...

The Open 2017: Jordan Spieth takes two-shot lead on day two – as it happened

Jordan Spieth battled through dreadful conditions to card a 69 that puts him in control at the halfway point. 8.20pm BST And that’s your lot from this blog today. Make sure to come back tomorrow for Moving Day! Nighty night!-6: Spieth-4: Kuchar-3: Poulter, Koepka 8.19pm BST Tommy Fleetwood takes out the putter, and sends a lengthy right-to-left swinger racing towards the hole. It stops three feet short. He should be here this weekend. It’s a knee-knocker, though, given the circumstances. But it’s in. At +5, he scrapes under the cut line! The local lad has made it. Matsuyama gets up and down from the sand and signs for a 72; he’s level par. Two putts from off the front for Koepka: par, a 72, and he’s -3. Continue reading...

More than just a smut-fest: Love Island and the evolution of reality TV sex

Ever since Michelle and Stuart got intimate on Big Brother in 2004, reality TV shows have been racing to out-bed-hop each other. But are the results always tasteless? Contestants and producers give their verdictsA camera zooms in on a black-and-white closeup of a foot dangling from a duvet, then a wine bottle is vigorously knocked over on to the floor. A dull moan fills the room and then – and really, what could be sexier? – a Scottish voiceover announces something sarcastic. The next day, a girl called Montana declares, in an almost bored drawl, “Mon got some last night” to a gaggle of squealing girls. Welcome to TV sex in 2017.The aforementioned scene comes from the current series of Love Island (2.4 million viewers and counting) which is merely the latest reality TV show to tap into the British public’s fascination with watching “real” sex on screen. The question is, why are we so enthralled? Continue reading...
