D’Arreion Toles was arriving home after a late night at his office in St. Louis when he arrived at his downtown loft building and found the entrance blocked by a young white woman who demanded proof that he actually lived in the building. Toles asked the woman to get out of his way so he could use his key fob to enter the building. The unidentified woman repeatedly demanded that he tell her which unit he lived in, information that Toles did not feel he should have to provide to a stranger. He pushed past her and took the elevator…

In the wide-ranging interview with ABC News, titled “Being Melania: The First Lady,” Melania Trump covered everything from the #MeToo movement, to her husband’s alleged infidelities, to her frustrations over being “the most bullied person in the world” in her first sit-down as first lady. On Her Husband’s Alleged Affairs “I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do,” she told ABC News’ chief national affairs correspondent Tom Llamas. “I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage.” Asked if she’s been hurt by…

President Donald Trump shirked the duties that real presidents would be handling in the midst of a major natural disaster with — as The New York Times put it in their headline — “Residents of Florida Coast Increasingly Desperate for Food and Shelter.” You’ve already heard most of the enormous bundle of lies that constitutes “Trump’s Greatest Hits,” falsehoods that he feels obligated to repeat for his fans at every performance. He did “Lock Her Up,” “Pocahontas,” No Man Is Safe,” “Build The Wall,” “Voter Fraud,” “Space Force,” the new “MS-13 Are Animals” Kanye remix called “MS-13 Garbage,” and his…

An alien who landed in Washington today might be forgiven for assuming the president is a highly successful leader, wildly popular with the public. But then someone would have to patiently explain, “Let me tell you about Donald Trump …” Opponents accuse Trump of trading in misogyny, racism, mendacity, crassness and chaos, as painfully documented by authors Michael Wolff and Bob Woodward. They also contend that the policy wins listed above are hollow. An economy built on Barack Obama’s foundations, tax cuts that favour the rich, mounting national debt; a supreme court nominee rammed through in a show of contempt…

President Donald Trump sat down with Kanye West at the White House to talk tax cuts, prison reform, mental health and racism during a hurricane. We can recall that Trump called out then-president Barack Obama for doing something similar. In 2012, Trump slammed Obama for campaigning with JAY-Z weeks after Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New York and New Jersey. “Yesterday Obama campaigned with JayZ & Springsteen while Hurricane Sandy victims across NY & NJ are still decimated by Sandy. Wrong!” Trump wrote. On Thursday, many Twitter users reposted Trump’s tweet. “How cool, Jayz & Springsteen! You should be so…

Hillary Clinton is tired of President Donald Trump’s lies. The president’s latest delusional lies about her during his recent spate of Nuremberg-like political rallies was not taken in good faith.. Trump tried to take the heat off of himself over the proven collusion between his campaign and Russia — with 35 people now having been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller — by employing the tactics of a five-year-old, essentially crying loudly that it wasn’t me, it was them. “There was collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia,” Trump told the crowd at the rally, just after his supporters had…

A fact check of President Donald Trump’s USA Today op-ed determined that many of the assertions he made about “Medicare for All” were misleading. Trump’s piece, published Wednesday, attacked Democrats for proposing a national “single-payer health-care system,” which, according to Trump, amounts to a socialist plot to destroy Medicare. “My family escaped socialism, now my fellow Democrats think we should move the party in its direction,” Trump wrote. Initially, USA Today inserted hyperlinks directing readers to articles whose facts contradicted Trump’s claims. Taking it a step further, the editorial section Thursday published a debunking of the facts by FactCheck.org, a…

Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts has referred a slew of judicial misconduct claims against newly confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh to “outside judges for investigation,” according to FOX News’  Brett Baier. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvTXHZomMR4 On Saturday, the Washington Post reported that Justice Roberts has received over a dozen judicial misconduct complaints stemming from comments he made and his general behavior during the confirmation process and the now infamous tantrum he threw during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. “The complaints do not pertain to any conduct in which Judge Kavanaugh engaged as a judge.
