'My daughter and I share T-shirts and a RuPaul devotion': a single mother’s guide to style
After I divorced, my six-year-old began honing the way I dressed, taking inspiration from the Drag Race starThis summer I took my daughter to a Kylie Minogue concert in Edinburgh and, as a reward for a good school report, let her choose what I’d wear. She put me in a fit and flare polka-dot dress and black Dolce heels studded with lipsticks. I couldn’t explain that I didn’t want to wear their clothes any more because they dress the Trump women and so she was dismayed when I wore brown wedges, both PC and wrong with the outfit.Walking up the cobbled streets to the castle, she kept urging me to go back to the room and change so Kylie wouldn’t see and have to stop the show.

Free, Melania review: Trump book skips the birther question
Kate Bennett offers insight but dodges thorny issues – like the first lady’s support for her husband’s racist attacks on ObamaFree, Melania: what we learned from the salacious new bookKate Bennett’s Free, Melania is a book at war with itself.

Beyond that, the comma in the book’s title lurks needlessly like the exclamation attached to “Jeb!” What either punctation mark was meant to convey, if anything, remains a mystery.

The life lessons I learned over breakfast with a Trump supporter | Emma Brockes
A chance encounter at the buffet made me wonder if instead of nodding and smiling I should be passionately disagreeingI was in a hotel in a rural part of northern California, asking a man at the breakfast buffet what he thought of Barack Obama. Up to that point, we had been talking, affably, about drug addiction, paganism and the likelihood of a volcano in the area blowing any time soon, before moving on to his enthusiasm for Donald Trump. Now he looked at me suspiciously. The question, he knew, contained an accusation within it, as did my follow-up about Hillary Clinton. “I would love to see a female – a black female! – be president,” he said carefully. “Just not her.”I felt some sympathy for the guy in the hotel, and then – a sign of the times – wondered if this amounted to collaboration Continue reading...
