The headiest of headlines
"Not Gouda news," perfectly quips ABC's Rebecca Jarvis in response to the very important bulletin that A Cheese Glut is Overtaking America (at 300+ shares right now). "America, we are not eating enough cheese!" admonishes Shira Ovide at Bloomberg Gadfly. "Ah, a cheese glut so big that every American would need to eat an extra 3 lbs to work it off -- challenge accepted," reacts Katherine Chiglinsky, elsewhere at Bloomberg. But lest you get too caught up in the cheese-phoria, beware. "Good news: there's a glut of cheese! Bad news: It's American cheese," points out WSJ's Michael Bird. Moreover, we have NBC's Josh Sternberg to bring us back down to reality with a big thud: "1 in 6 Americans face hunger. Maybe they can benefit from the glut of cheese, meat & poultry."
Enough of that frivolity, because here comes your daily dose of politics. At Politico, Shane Goldmacher insists that Donald Trump is not expanding the GOP. "So all those new voters Trump claims? Most of them were gonna vote in November anyway," Goldmacher tweets. "Surely, THIS example of Trump making shit up will be the one that takes him down," hopes Rob Garver with the Fiscal Times. So perhaps knowing that, you won't be as surprised to hear that some conservatives are still plotting to #stopTrump at the upcoming Cleveland convention. "n words of one frustrated delegate, 'Donald Trump has an obligation to earn our vote. We don’t owe him anything,'" WaPo's Ed O'Keefe reports. But even while that goes on, Trump appears to be borrowing from Bernie Sanders’s playbook to woo Dems. "'Who’s been tougher on bankers than Trump? He’s taken them to the cleaners.' Non-payment of debt=tough on Wall St?" NYT's Jonathan Weisman wonders after reading. And on that note, you may have heard that Bernie Sanders supporters are pretty angry at the Nevada Democratic party right now. And by angry, we mean "making death threats"-level angry. "The many women who have reported harassment from Sanders supporters are totally making up the #BernieBro phenomenon," sarcastically tweets freelancer Jill Filipovic, before adding, "I don't blame Sanders for the bad behavior of so many of his followers. But he needs to get his people in line." And lastly, it might all come down to Pennsylvania: could The Keystone State be this year's electoral tipping point? Former GOP runner John Kasich insists it's still Ohio, but if it is, his noticeable lack of endorsement could prove crucial in shutting down Trump in the general election.
