Republican Senator Bob Corker warned that President Trump’s impulsive threats against other countries could lead us to World War III and tweeted “the White House has become an adult daycare center.” President Trump fired right back.

Then, Sandra Boynton talks about her life and career as a songwriter, illustrator and best-selling children’s book author.
