    Yahoo News explains: North Korea's elusive path to denuclearization

    On Sunday, North Korea staged a military parade as it marked the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding. Instead, the parade focused on conventional arms, peace and economic development as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat with a special envoy from China. There also weren’t any nuclear tests to mark the holiday, as has happened in the last two years.

    Yahoo News explains: North Korea's elusive path to denuclearization

    On Sept. 9, North Korea staged a military parade as it marked the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding. The country typically showcases its military might at events like these by displaying long-range missiles, but not this year. Instead, the parade focused on peace and economic development, which received praise from President Trump, who tweeted a thank-you to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. While Trump’s public rhetoric may paint a positive picture, his administration continues to put pressure on North Korea to denuclearize. Was the change in this year's military parade for show, or is North Korea making a move toward denuclearization? Yahoo News explains.

    'Plaid shirt guy' wins the internet with silly faces during a Trump rally

    Going viral and becoming a meme is pretty easy in the age of Trump: Just stand behind The Orange One at his rallies and — this part's key — make silly faces during his speech. Doing so will turn all eyeballs from The Donald to you. It'll also get your removed from the rally courtesy of the Secret Service. But, worth it! SEE ALSO: Sia's story of meeting Donald Trump on 'SNL' comes with a crappy twist ending This is exactly what happened when Tyler Linfesty attended a Trump rally in Montana on Sept. 6. He quickly became immortalized on the internet as "Plaid Shirt Guy" after he was spotted visibly reacting to the president's words just behind his right shoulder. So about the man in the plaid shirt standing behind Trump at his Montana rally last night who was switched out midway through. It appears the reason is that he was mocking Trump. Here he is mouthing “what?!?” in response to Trump’s ranting commentary:pic.twitter.com/XFHM5CTHri — Andrew Wortman (@AmoneyResists) September 7, 2018 this was one of my favorites ‘we’ve picked up a lot of support’ plaid shirt guy ‘HAVE YOU!??’ pic.twitter.com/omM7i8zwPh — Katie Moeser (@IamKatieMoe) September 7, 2018 Weirdest thing just happened at Trump rally in Montana. The guy in plaid shirt behind Trump must not hv been cheering enough so a woman walked up and asked him to move and She took his spot #inners #maddow #LastWord pic.twitter.com/pTOq2kBwgb — Kikkay (@NikkisBubble) September 7, 2018 "Some people thought I was being disrespectful – I was not planning to be disrespectful," Linfesty told ABC Fox Montana. "Some people thought I was part of a conspiracy theory, like I was planted there, my friends were planted there — I was not planted there." Linfesty says he was just there to meet Trump, shake his hand, and take a photo with him. "I was just there to see the president and I had my natural reactions when I thought he said something I disagreed with, I visibly disagreed," says Linfesty. Linfesty was removed from the event mid-way through Trump's speech, after which the Secret Service asked him to leave — and not come back — according to CNN. You can see him being whisked away right at the 50:45 mark in the entire video below: "I think I know why they removed me. It’s because, well before the rally they told us that ‘you have to be enthusiastic, you have to be clapping, you have to be cheering for Donald Trump,’ and I wasn’t doing that because I wasn’t enthusiastic, I wasn’t happy with what he was saying." Whatever, man! The Internet has deemed you meme-worthy. Just look at how many people you made happy: #plaidshirtguy is my new hero. — Nancy Sinatra (@NancySinatra) September 8, 2018 I don't know who you are kid, but right now, you're my hero. #plaidshirtguy — erin chapin (@erinkchapin) September 7, 2018 In the middle of deplorable insanity there’s hope... #plaidshirtguy pic.twitter.com/VypxQIOJOm — itsallrealitv (@itsallrealitv) September 7, 2018 Congrats and enjoy the spotlight because it won't last forever.

    Yahoo News explains: A guide to anonymous sources

    Anonymous sources: it’s a hot topic, thrust back into the national spotlight this week with a bombshell New York Times op-ed from an unidentified “senior official in the Trump administration” claiming to be part of an effort to thwart the Trump White House. It was published a day after excerpts were revealed from an explosive book by veteran journalist Bob Woodward that paints a picture of a “nervous breakdown” of the Trump White House. His book is sourced using confidential interviews from current and former White House staffers. Both events have drawn “anonymous sources” back into the crosshairs of the president. When are anonymous sources used, anyway? Yahoo News explains.

    President Trump announced this week that White House counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his post. White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. Most notably, he threatened last year to resign if Trump continued to press for the removal of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the Russia investigation.
