R.E.M. cycle … “It’s the end of the world as we know it.” That is the message of virtually everyone in the media today. At The Federalist, Bre Payton highlighted “15 Over-The-Top reactions To Trump’s Withdrawal From Paris Climate Deal.” Not all of them are from the press, but all of them are WTF-worthy. While you read the rest of today’s newsletter, crank up this tune.
Rand schools Tapper … A very concerned Jake Tapper had Rand Paul on CNN yesterday to talk about the Paris accord.

This was meant to underscore the need for the Paris accord. A quick search of the weather showed that it was two degrees under the normal June high temperature for Washington, D.C.
