At last night's Alfalfa Club dinner — a black-tie cotillion for titans of government and business — physician and former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist [corrected] pretended to give a grim, gloved medical exam to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The big picture: Don't worry. That's not the fun part. The dinner is off-camera and off the record, but a little bird tells me that former Secretary of State John Kerry, the outgoing Alfalfa president, had a patter that included these lines: "Donald Trump could be the first president to go to the inaugural of his successor in a limo with license plates made by his campaign manager."

Rex Tillerson spent $1 Million in taxpayer money to fly across the U.S.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spent more than $1 million in taxpayer money for the use of military jets, and some for personal purposes, according to an estimate by American Oversight.

The details: Based on government documents the American Oversight obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, Tillerson used military jets 15 times during his 14 months as secretary of state. Five of those trips were marked as "personal travel," while the rest do not have any explanation.
