Glancing at his secretary of state and his daughter, Mr. Trump also offered his thoughts about her appearance: “Beauty and the beast, Mike,” he added. The Luke Falk era is over. Asking the Jets (0-4) to suddenly snap into some form of relevance is too much, but with Sam Darnold, the team’s promising second-year quarterback — and unwitting subject of a fairly amusing meme — back from a bout with mononucleosis, they should at least rise above embarrassing. This week could still be a tough one, as the Cowboys (3-2) are reeling from consecutive losses and may be looking to prove a point about their offensive relevance against a lesser opponent.

With great power comes a lot of publicity — not all of it wanted, as a new book about the secretive Koch Industries makes clear. Several weeks ago, concerned museum directors approached Mr. Walker, the Ford Foundation director, who together with Elizabeth Alexander, president of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, arranged a meeting for them at Mellon’s offices in Manhattan to discuss possible ways forward. Mr. Walker was concerned that the activists sometimes sounded as if they would like to use political power to destroy arts institutions, not reform them. But he urged museum directors to get ahead of the issue by re-evaluating the criteria they use to select trustees in a manner consistent with their missions.

Another official said that Mr. Kushner had merely favored a commutation. While Mr. Kushner said it would appeal to Democrats, this official said, he pointed to some high-profile figures like the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who wrote a letter to the president supporting a commuted sentence and “a full pardon.” But like bank robbers, blood-feeders need to be stealthy.
