The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On June 1
Happy first day of June, everyone! It's hard to believe we're nearly halfway through the year, but here we are — and at least it's actually feeling like summer outside, finally.
Unfortunately, the biggest news of the day isn't something to celebrate heading into the weekend. For more on Trump's Paris agreement decision and other major news from June 1, read on:
Trump + The Paris Agreement
Well, it's happening. President Trump is pulling the United States out of the Paris climate accord, an agreement about reducing greenhouse gas emissions that was agreed to by nearly 200 countries. This is a huge freakin' deal, and potentially devastating (especially for millennials), seeing as the United States produces much of the world's emissions. Countless people, including Bernie Sanders, are voicing their opposition to Trump's decision. Ugh.
Deal of the Day: Trump toilet paper exists. You know what to do.
Jennifer Garner + A Powerful Statement
In response to a People magazine cover about Jennifer Garner's life post-split from Ben Affleck, the actor responded with a heartfelt Facebook statement distancing herself from the article, and setting the record straight about who's in charge of her narrative. She wrote:
I did not pose for this cover. I did not participate in or authorize this article. While we are here, for what it's worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete. Have a beautiful day, Love, Jen

Portland + A Fundraiser For The Victims
Need some good news at the near-end of a heavy week? A Muslim-led fundraiser for the victims of the train attack in Portland has raised more than $500,000. The fund is going toward the families of the two men killed and one hospitalized in the attack, and it's run by organizations devoted to educating people on Islam and stopping misunderstandings about the religion. Very, very cool.
