United States President Donald Trump's 60 Minutes interview with Leslie Stahl that aired on Sunday night gave a glimpse of a painting that left everyone baffled and amused at the same time.

It depicts the president sitting with the "Republican Club," drinking a Diet Coke and flanked by Theodore Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and others. Directly across the table is Abraham Lincoln. A cheery Gerald Ford stands behind Trump and a small variety of other former presidents, such as Grant and Coolidge, peep out from the backdrop.

President Trump called his son a "good young guy" and said he did what any political aide would have done. The fact that Trump would then hang that in the White House was entirely in character, Thomas said, both from the point of view of the president's ego and his willingness to honor a piece of kitsch created by an ordinary voter.

Instead, Trump's art selection was noticed by Josh Billinson, the editor for Independent Journal Review, who tweeted: "oh my god, it's hanging in the white house". "He made a comment that he'd seen a lot of paintings of himself and he rarely liked them".

A sharp critic of Trump, Warren wasted little time going after him on Monday.

But some Trump administration officials have said the policy, under which some 2,600 children were separated from their parents, was needed to secure the border and deter illegal immigration. And Donald Trump is responding to it, and everybody - you know, try to add the whole table involved in the conversation or the feeling, the moment.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
When cancer cells travels to other parts of the body and begin damaging other tissues and organs the process is called metastasis. The goal is to unite behind the American Cancer Society's efforts to save lives from breast cancer.

The painting is part of Thomas' bipartisan artwork. He painted "The Republican Club", which features the current president and his GOP predecessors and which is hanging in the White House.

President Trump told Varney that Republicans planned to continue cutting red tape, as well as moving ahead with more tax cuts after the midterm elections.

The painting's surprising debut on "60 Minutes" inspired a slew of scathing commentary, from "Oh my god, it's in the White House" to "Is it on a black velvet background?"

Sears is hammering out deal to stay open in bankruptcy
By last month, Sears' market value had fallen below $100 million, less than quarter of the value of Kenmore itself. It's also worth noting that Sears and Montgomery Ward were both disruptors of marketplaces in their own times.
