President Donald Trump finally bonded with Rodrigo Duterte. This is  over a common dislike for Barack Obama, whose criticism of the Philippine leader’s deadly war on drugs last year spurred a rift between the allies. “The relationship appears to be very warm and very friendly,” Duterte spokesman Harry Roque told reporters after they met in Manila on Monday. “They’ve been very candid in their dealings, and it’s very apparent that both of them have a person who they consider as not their best friend. They have similar feelings toward former U.S. President Barack Obama.” Ahead of the meeting, Trump said…

President Donald Trump  has contradicted the  U.S. intelligence agencies, by saying he believes President Vladimir Putin did not attempt to interfere in the 2016 election. Trump spoke with Putin in Vietnam during a joint summit with other Asia-Pacific countries. When a reporter asked if the subject of Russian election interference came up, Trump replied, “He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they are saying he did. … Every time he sees me, he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it. But…

The United States is currently trying to negotiate a trade deal with South Korea, led by United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. President Trump felt that it was important—as a self-proclaimed master negotiator—to coach the attorney before his meeting with South Koreans.

According to Axios, who obtained this information from sources familiar with the meeting (and the White House has not disputed), Trump’s…

Rev. Al Sharpton speaks: I should know — I have been there. I marched against Trump during the Central Park Five case in the 1990s, and I socialized with him when he surrounded himself with black artists and athletes in the 2000s. No matter the scenario, Trump was always a consummate narcissist and self-promoter. But these qualities were not the most disturbing things about him — many politicians and businessmen act in similar ways. What disturbed me the most was that he never ever showed a different side of himself. There was no loyalty there (except perhaps to his family);…

President Donald Trump  may be shouting that he is getting jobs back to the United States, and he is going to end immigration soon. Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s favorite club, and his “Winter White House,” was recently permitted to hire 70 maids, cooks, and servers for their current tourist season, all from foreign countries, through the H-2B visa program. In Palm Beach County, 2,159 workers were hired for low-paying temporary jobs this winter. And nationwide, employers were granted permission to employ almost 134,000 workers. What’s even more astounding is that this is an increase from last year, under Barack Obama’s administration. And…

Phil Robertson, the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch is now suggesting that Beyoncé’s music is so powerful that you can get an STD by just listening to it. In a video for Independent Journal Review, the duck expert listened to various pop songs and complained about all of them. But when Beyoncé’s song “Blow” came on, he lost it and refused to listen to more.

Kathy Griffin is not sorry for what she did with the mask of Donald Trump’s bloodied head. In an interview with BBC World News program HardTalk she said; “I’m not sorry. I take the apology back 1,000 percent,” Griffin said. “The reason I made the apology is when the image went out, I thought people would just think, ‘That’s Kathy doing another shocking image.’ I’ve done many throughout my entire career, and I’ve done many shocking things. When I won my first Emmy I said, ‘Suck it, Jesus, because this award is my God now!’ And you know, the conservatives…
