Fish hotel, anyone? 🐟

It was the week that felt like a year. 

Last week kicked off with White House advisor Jared Kushner testifying before a congressional committee about his meetings with Russian officials. The Senate voted to open debate on the Obamacare repeal replacement bill before it quickly went up in flames. President Trump announced a ban on transgender people from the U.S. military via Twitter, where he also continued his relentless public humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci had an, er, interesting chat with a New Yorker reporter before being forced out of his role only 10 days later
