While many of us are glued to our televisions watching the City of Baltimore descend into flames and chaos and dreading what nightfall might bring, President Obama is reportedly meeting with newly sworn-in Attorney General Loretta Lynch and discussing the situation.

At least that’s what we’ve been told; reporters won’t have the opportunity to ask questions tonight, as the White House has declared a travel and photo lid.

It’s not difficult to predict how Attorney General Lynch will approach the crisis of race riots in Baltimore — as Vice President Biden said this morning at her swearing-in ceremony, Lynch is “cut from the exact same cloth” as Eric Holder. So expect more of the same that brought us to this point.
