Though President Trump’s gathering of House Republicans in the Rose Garden to celebrate the House’s passage of the AHCA dominated the news Thursday, the president also hosted guests to witness his signing of his Executive Order on Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty.

That executive order doesn’t really have teeth, though; even the ACLU issued a statement saying, in effect, it wouldn’t bother to sue because there was nothing new worth suing over.

Even conceding that that signing was little more than a photo-op, we’ll take it, if only to see the Little Sisters of the Poor as honored guests at the White House — that’s a seismic shift.

The Little Sisters of the Poor received a standing ovation at the White House; hopefully they’re enjoying their evening and not surfing social media.

They didn’t say, but they did release a video statement.
