Good morning Her Campus! With a break-neck news cycle, there is no possible way for you to stay on top of every story that comes across your feeds—we’re all only human, after all.
But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.)
Contrary to Melania’s Rep, Trump Says Her Controversial Jacket Was Intentional
So, there’s a new development in the Melania Trump Jacket saga: contrary to a statement made by the FLOTUS’ communication director, President Trump tweeted Thursday evening that the jacket his wife wore to visit immigrant children in Texas, which read “I really don’t care, do u?” was not only totally intentional, but a statement actually directed at the “fake news media.”
“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!

Meanwhile, the First Lady’s communications director Stephanie Grisham tweeted earlier in the day that, “#ItsJustAJacket” so, yeah okay POTUS.
Corey Lewandowski Dropped From Speakers Bureau Following ‘Womp Womp’ Comment
After dismissing the story of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was separated from her parents at the border with a “womp womp” on live television (and refusing to apologize), Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been dropped from top Washington, D.C. speakers bureau Leading Authorities Inc, CNN reports. Speakers bureaus, which handle public speaking and appearances for political figures like Lewandowski, often earn their speakers five and six-figure checks for just one appearance — so thankfully, it seems like at least someone is standing up to Lewandowski and refusing to give him a platform for his bullsh*t.

Delta Has Banned “Pit Bull Type” Dogs as Service Dogs
People are *not* happy after Delta announced Thursday that it would no longer allow “pit bull type” dogs to be brought on its flights as service dogs, BuzzFeed News reports. While Delta cites “several recent incidents in which several employees were bitten,” service dog and pit bull owners are pretty furious, saying the description “pit bull type” is too vague, and that most pit bulls aren’t actually violent at all.
Are you kidding me, @delta?
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against the use of service dogs in public spaces, INCLUDING breed-specific discrimination.
Also, “pit bull type dog” is not a breed. https://t.co/F3BMKdJzmP
