Quote of the Day:
“They had it coming, and I felt good about it. It was a good feeling.”
— Patrick Howley, editor-in-chief of Big League Politics, who went on a 60-email rant to his former employer this morning. We won’t likely see the specifics since it has been deleted. But sources say he can now put his history with the site behind him. Just for a little cherry on top, he called into Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow‘s SiriusXM radio show Monday morning and Marlow hung up on him. “It’s water under the bridge,” Howley noted. SUMMER LOVING HAD ME A BLAST…As an aside apropos of nothing, Howley recently had a spectacular romance with a black woman.
What people are chattering about…
Monday’s White House briefing will be off-camera and CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta is pretty pissed off. In turn, #AlwaysTrumpers and others are wondering why Acosta and the journalists who agree with him don’t take a real stand and do something about it — like boycott the briefings.
WH says Monday briefing will be off-camera. #democracyindarkness

Mrs. Scott Baio accuses me of being a lib after I accurately quoted her
My story was about how Renée Baio raised the issue of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow‘s “5 o’clock shadow.” So naturally she fired back at me that I should be writing about Rosie O’Donnell, who told Baio, “Eat me.” Which of course Baio finds reprehensible. For days, there has been a long discussion on my feed about Baio disciples and their trying to imagine actually eating Rosie sexually. I haven’t engaged. But the Baio disciples seem to be enjoying themselves as they bash Rosie’s brains out while blessing one another and telling Baio they have her back.

CNN’s David Gregory spotted in the security line at Dulles Airport
A Mirror spy wrote in early Monday morning at 7:25 a.m. to tell me that David Gregory was in line behind him or her and was towering over the other passengers. Gregory was relaxed and polite, the informant told me. He was with his 14-year-old son. “They asked him his age since he was too young to have an ID,” the source said. The pair were allegedly traveling to Austin, Texas. “Very happy. Very polite,” my spy replied when asked to describe the newsman’s demeanor and mood.
Two former Daily Caller employees get hitched
This is the second Daily Caller couple to wed — the first was Breitbart News‘s Jeff Poor and Caroline May, who is a Daily Caller freelancer after leaving The Caller to work for Breitbart News.
Shockingly, I wasn’t invited to the bash at The Breakers in Palm Beach.
But past and present employees like Will Rahn (now CBS) and Matt Lewis (The Daily Beast, CNN) were. Politico Playbook‘s Daniel Lippman also showed up.
Lewis took full advantage of all the journos in one setting.
