SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT:

TRUMP RETURNS – FROM THE NEW YORK POST:   Former President Donald Trump returned to the political stage on Saturday with a speech at the North Carolina Republican Convention, where he railed against his successor and predicted the GOP would triumph in the 2022 midterm elections.  After a nearly four-month break from public speaking, Trump took the stage as “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood blared from speakers, praising local and federal officials and candidates — and blasting “radical Democrats.”  “As we gather tonight, our country is being destroyed before our very own eyes. Crime is exploding, police departments are being ripped apart and defunded,” he told his devotees in the city of Greenville.  “Drugs are pouring in, gas prices are soaring, our industries are being pillaged by foreign cyberattacks.  “That’s a lack of respect for our country and our leaders.”  Trump, 74, struck a more subdued tone than the one that marked his more than five years of political rallies, though he still went after the country’s current leadership, assailing rising inflation rates, the cancellation of the Keystone pipeline and foreign relations.  “America’s being demeaned and humiliated on the world stage, our freedom is being overtaken by toxic cancel culture.  Our border is wide open, illegal immigration is skyrocketing at a level that we’ve never seen before,” the former president said.  Clearly, the number one question in American politics is whether Trump will run for the presidency again in 2024.  You may rest assured that he's doing extensive polling already. 

LATEST ROYAL NOTES THAT YOU MUST HAVE TO LIVE – FROM FOX:  Royal expert Angela Levin has spoken out on Twitter about the strained relationship between the Duke of Sussex and his family. She revealed that the royal family is quite concerned about Prince Harry’s mental state, which leads her to believe they won’t be "slamming the door" in his face any time soon.  "My view is that Harry’s family in London are very worried about his mental health," Levin tweeted in response to another user commenting on whether or not it was "too late" to bring Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, back into the fold.  Levin added, "[They] think slamming the royal door in his face could have devastating consequences."  Levin’s insight on the royal family comes just days after it was revealed Prince Harry would "absolutely" be invited to Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. The event, which is set to take place over the course of four days, will honor the queen’s 70 years on the throne.  To add to that, another royal family member revealed that Kate Middleton is playing "mediator" between her husband, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry. How could you have gone another day without knowing these things?  But why are we so interested in a loser of a prince?
