Grandma Hillary | Trump Option | Nashville LP

HardChoicesCoverGalleyCat: An excerpt from Hillary Clinton‘s memoir Hard Choices posted on Mother’s Day by Vogue has generated mountains of media coverage. The becoming-a-grandma passage bodes well for the book as a whole and comes with the added bonus of Clinton reading it aloud via SoundCloud.

AllTwitter: It’s not quite as satisfying as flying in a private jet to a far-flung luxury destination. But Twitter users will soon have the consolation-power to mute Donald Trump.

whcd.pngNothing gets New Yorkers to jump on a bus faster than a party, especially a party where the guest of honor is the Barack Obama. For the second time this year, journalists and celebrities flocked to the Beltway to party it up with the prez–this time for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.

Our colleagues over at FishbowlDC have extensive coverage of the weekend in the capitol. They hit all the fashionable pre-parties including ones hosted by The National Journal and The Atlantic and CBS.
