TRUMP: "We'll have more judges put on than any other president other than one. Do you know who the one is? George Washington. Percentage wise." ''You know I have 145 (judges nominated), plus hopefully two Supreme Court judges. And that's assuming nobody leaves the bench which they will over the next period of time."

Parents need to know that “The Council” is an episodic, downloadable narrative-focused adventure for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. A tale of intrigue and manipulation set during the meeting of a secret society in 1793, this is a game of cunning and careful planning. Although social skills are rewarded and encouraged, it’s in the context of manipulating others for your own gain. The flipside of that is the game also rewards you for making sure others truly earn your trust and that you always protect yourself. There are references to and sometimes depictions of torture, poisoning, and gun violence to influence others — the violence isn’t graphic but is a consistent element of the plot. The game’s camera also seems to go out of its way to show one female character’s cleavage. Women are referred to as “sluts,” there are also references to rape, and one scene includes elements of seduction and implied sex after the camera fades to black. “S--t” and “hell” are said frequently. Finally, there are also references to consuming absinthe and holistic crystals for supernatural purposes.
