It seems like Donald Trump unloads on somebody almost every day. This week, it was Hillary Clinton unloading on Donald Trump. Thin-skinned.  Ignorant. Tyrant-loving. And temperamentally unfit to be president of the United States. In a nutshell.  rump says: pathetic. Paul Ryan endorses Trump. At a zoo in Cincinnati, a gorilla is shot and uproar ensues. In Texas, terrible flooding on the Brazos. In Fallujah, the attack is on. This hour On Point, our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines. — Tom Ashbrook

From Tom’s Reading List

Los Angeles Times: Jerry Brown: 'This is no time for Democrats to keep fighting' -- "After carefully avoiding any involvement in the Democratic presidential primary, Gov. Jerry Brown dropped his neutrality – and looked past his bitter history with the Clintons – to endorse Hillary Clinton on Tuesday."

Philadelphia Inquirer: It's time to take Trump at his word -- "So what is the Trump Doctrine that's supposed to stop the world from exploiting us? From his speech, and his previous foreign-policy utterings, it appears to be a variant of isolationism, sort of, maybe. Just pull back and let 'em rot."

Cincinnati Enquirer: Cincinnati police don't recommend criminal charges in gorilla case — "Police have wrapped up their investigation without recommending charges against the mother of a 3-year-old boy who witnesses said fell into the gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo, according to a source close to the investigation."
