Sen. Bernie Sanders may have lost his bid for the White House, however, he is not going to fade into obscurity soon. He is not ready to let President Donald Trump have a field day with his actions. “I can’t remember a president who has had more authoritarian tendencies than Trump,” Sanders told me in an interview on Wednesday. “What is going on is not only this rise of authoritarianism but also, simultaneously, you are seeing this country move very rapidly toward oligarchy.” Sanders  said: There has never been a president, or even a leading public official, who has lied…

President Donald Trump close friend and confident, Sebastian Gorka took money from the FBI—and declared that the fight against Islamic radicals was ‘a holy war on our side,’ too. Gorka had worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation while he was a paid consultant to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, lecturing bureau employees on counterterrorism issues. The FBI has terminated his appointment for his over-the-top Islamophobic rhetoric. According to the Daily Beast, the FBI stopped working with Gorka before he joined the White House as a senior adviser to President Trump. Some law enforcement officials who attended Gorka’s lecture in 2016…

Michelle Obama recently posted pictures of a boot camp she organized with some of her friends, which was inadvertently the best response to President Donald Trump administration fat-shaming. Obama wrote about how it’s a tradition carried over from her days in the White House, where, remember, she spearheaded the “Let’s Move!” campaign, initiated to fight childhood obesity. Obama wrote, “My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transitions over the years—including a pretty big one recently!—and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together. Whether it’s a bootcamp or a walk around the neighborhood, I…

President Donald Trump has heaped praises on his amiable wife, Melania Trump for being a very popular first lady. Trump made this known during a “Make America Great Again” rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “They’re liking her … They’re liking her,” the president said in the middle of claiming that the media never shows the full size of the crowds gathered at his rallies. “I’d go home and my wife Melania would say — who by the way she has become very popular. They’re liking her … They’re liking her,” Trump said, seemingly with a surprised look on his face.…

We got some great news today! Some very generous nurses have put smiles on 1800 families by paying off their debts.

The Congressional Black Caucus is expected to decline meeting with President Donald Trump , according to four sources close to the group. The Trump administration, sources said, has done nothing to advance the CBC’s priorities since the group’s executive board first met with Trump in March. And members are worried the request for a caucus-wide meeting would amount to little more than a photo op that the president could use to bolster his standing among African-Americans. “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show,” said one senior Democratic aide. Lawmakers in the 49-member group each received an…

President Donald Trump may not be having the best of his team as some of them are already dropping their leadership positions. Six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) have just submitted their resignations. This came through a letter they wrote in Newsweek magazine, citing they no longer feel like working for a president who doesn’t even care. “As advocates for people living with HIV, we have dedicated our lives to combating this disease and no longer feel we can do so effectively within the confines of an advisory body to a president who simply does not…

President Donald Trump has faced some challenging and difficult moments since he became the president. The Russia investigation, the resigning of his key members and obstruction of justice probe are starting to take a toll on him according to multiple advisors. According to Politico: “But Trump, too, is cognizant of the comparison to Nixon, according to one adviser. The president, who friends said does not enjoy living in Washington and is strained by the demanding hours of the job, is motivated to carry on because he ‘doesn’t want to go down in history as a guy who tried and failed,’…

I’m starting to suspect that Donald Trump may not have been right when he said, “You know, I’m like a smart person.” The evidence continues to mount that he is far from smart — so far, in fact, that he may not be capable of carrying out his duties as president. There is, for example, the story of how Trump met with the pastors of two major Presbyterian churches in New York. “I did very, very well with evangelicals in the polls,” he bragged. When the pastors told Trump they weren’t evangelicals, he demanded to know, “What are you then?”…
