An estimated 900,000 Americans overdosed in 2015, with over 30,000 of those overdoses fatal and stemming from opioid drugs. Opioids are the leading cause of unintentional death in the United States. STAT estimated earlier this year that opioids could kill nearly 500,000 Americans in the next decade.

“I Hate Everyone in the White House!”: Trump Seethes as Advisers Fear the President Is “Unraveling”

Which might explain Trump’s currently “unraveling” mood and all those demands for stuff like competitive IQ testing; there’s nothing like a little workplace paranoia to get everybody in that festive, “Oh god, he has the launch codes” point of view. (It doesn’t help that Trump’s apparently smarting over a perceived loss of control over his most rabid followers, in the wake of an Alabama election that saw the Trump-backed candidate lose.) Still, even the most hated White House staffers know what they need to do to get their boy back on track; the administration’s press staff recently pulled out of a potentially contentious 60 Minutes interview, substituting a combined wound-licking/bragging session with Sean Hannity tonight in its stead.

2:33 NHL: Penguins 3, Capitals 2

Vanity Fair piece is a wide-ranging look at a building full of people apparently living in fear of their erratic, nuclear arsenal-armed boss. The most noteworthy bit comes from a conversation Trump reportedly had with his security chief, Keith Schiller, in which he loudly declared, “I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!” (The White House was later forced to deny that the president hates everybody.)

The Penguins are in town to face the rival Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena on Wednesday (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports, NHL.TV). They defeated the Capitals in the Eastern Conference Second Round in each of the past two seasons.Tony Blair Former Prime Minister United Kingdom

stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump’s impeachment.

And so while the Penguins insisted they were treating this like any other White House visit, perhaps in some subtle ways they weren’t.before he headed back to his haunted Breitbart castle to brood: 

While Kelly can’t control Trump’s tweets, he is doing his best to physically sequester the president—much to Trump’s frustration. One major G.O.P. donor told me access to Trump has been cut off, and his outside calls to the White House switchboard aren’t put through to the Oval Office. Earlier this week, I reported on Kelly’s plans to prevent Trump from mingling with guests at Mar-a-Lago later this month. And, according to two sources, Keith Schiller quit last month after Kelly told Schiller he needed permission to speak to the president and wanted written reports of their conversations.Looking relaxed and glib in the East Room after partaking of a private luncheon with the same Secretary of State who has not publicly denied that he called his own Commander-in-Chief a moron, Trump praised Mario Lemieux’s golf game and shouted out to a sheepish, blushing Sidney Crosby, who had secreted himself at the west end of the back row of players, as far from the president as he possibly could position himself without tumbling off the riser into the Grand Foyer.The Vanity Fair report states, “According to two sources familiar with the conversation, Trump vented to his longtime security chief, Keith Schiller, ‘I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!’ Two senior Republican officials said Chief of Staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision.”

several polls, they made their decision long before Bannon turned his “war machine” on the state. Still, Bannon got the publicity he was seeking, and the notoriety he needed to cement the anti-establishment narrative. (It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that he turned a candidate into a “blunt instrument” to advance his agenda.) “You’re going to see in state, after state, after state, people that follow the model of Judge Moore,” Bannon said at Moore’s victory party Tuesday night. “That do not need to raise money from the elites, from the crony capitalists, from the fat cats in Washington, D.C.”

A crowd of Pittsburghers and Pennsylvania politicos jammed the gilded chamber, chanting and cheering their heroes, who, in a marked break with tradition, neither presented a team jersey or other gift to the president during the ceremony nor posed with him beside the gleaming Cup. Trump was not seen to touch the fabled mug, but its magic rubbed off on him nonetheless. Had the Penguins fallen in last spring’s final to the Nashville Predators, the president would have had to invite Tennessee’s Bob Corker, the same Senator who has called the Trump White House “an adult day-care center” and accused the president of leading his nation to the brink of World War Three.

Trump: 'I hate everyone in the White House!'

Still, there was a different feel Tuesday afternoon as Sidney Crosby, his Pittsburgh Penguins teammates, general manager Jim Rutherford, head coach Mike Sullivan and support staff filed into the Oval Office in Washington ahead of team owners Ron Burkle, Mario Lemieux and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump reportedly said 'I hate everyone in the White House!'

“Man, can you play?” Trump said, while wondering aloud whether Crosby had passed Burkle’s fellow co-owner and franchise legend Mario Lemieux.

In a most civil — and hardly political — 13-plus minute celebration of Pittsburgh’s most recent Cup, Trump lauded the Penguins’ accomplishments, made a few jokes about them winning a lot and being so good looking, and nothing got overly political.

So did the NHL and the Penguins say to the White House something akin to “We won’t embarrass you by refusing to accept your invitation, but we don’t want to be embarrassed by being used for political purposes”?
