Explanations of the hints: He probably also asked about his pension: after failing to keep the UK in the EU, Cameron announced his retirement; dream delayed: the young "dreamers" will have to wait for help from the federal government on the immigration front; it's the Andy Warhol theory of law enforcement: wags have suggested that everyone will have 15 minutes of fame as Oakland's police chief; and a mother scorned: Barbara Bush, wife of one former president, mother of another former president, and mother of a candidate who lost the nomination to Trump, is not a fan.
