According to The Wall Street Journal, Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons will be making a bipartisan attempt to reach a budget deal with a new immigration bill before the government is forced to shut down on Friday.
Eagles team member Chris Long is continuing to prove he stands by his values by refusing to visit the White House, should President Trump invite the team to celebrate their Super Bowl victory. This comes after his decision to donate his entire 2017 game earnings to different organizations dedicated to providing equal education opportunities.
An angry crowd of roughly 2,000 people gathered at the University of Massachusetts Amherst last night after The New England Patriots lost 41-33 to The Eagles in this year’s Super Bowl.
The gathering first appeared to mostly consist of students yelling “Fuck The Eagles!” but eventually devolved into a violent scene, resulting in six people being arrested and 12 having to be taken to the hospital.
President Trump’s standards are apparently so low that he feels proud of a new Rasmussen poll showing that less than half of America approves of the job he’s doing, just because the number is now higher than it once was.
House Speaker Paul Ryan once again proved that he has no self-awareness or grasp on reality after posting a tweet on Saturday touting a secretary’s $1.50 weekly raise, which he credited the GOP tax bill for.
The massively hyped memo written by GOP congressman Devin Nunes has backfired in several ways, and on Saturday, the campaign of Andrew Janz, the Democratic candidate running against Nunes for his seat in the California House, revealed another way it blew up in the Republican’s face.
Stephanie Clifford, the adult film actress who goes by the name Stormy Daniels, was interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, and during her appearance she pretty much denied having written or signed the statement denying she had an affair with Donald Trump.
In her quest to put a positive spin on President Trump’s State of the Union address, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insulted Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for not smiling enough.
At least one Republican thinks it would be a massive mistake for the president to stop special counsel Robert Mueller from completing the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to sway the 2016 election.
New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand called out Republicans for their lack of public denunciations against Steve Wynn, the former finance chairman of the Republican National Committee who’s been accused of sexual assault and harassment by dozens of women who worked at his Las Vegas businesses.
Former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie is continuing to fill his role as a Trump lackey. Despite the overwhelming evidence that Russia interfered with the 2016 election and Trump’s long list of Russian ties, Christie said the president shouldn’t do a face-to-face interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller because he believes there isn’t enough evidence to warrant an in-person interview.
The U.S. released a list of prominent figures in Russia, including businessmen and government figures, on Monday night.
The move, which was a form of punishment in response to Russia’s meddling in the 2016 elections, still didn’t prompt new sanctions against those named on the list. Some are already subject to sanctions.
One of the most important, if not the most important, goals of The Resistance movement is to get people to participate in local politics rather than just voting every four years in presidential elections. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appears to be taking this seriously, because on Monday, he announced that the site would begin showing users more news from outlets in their own towns and cities.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, yet again, claimed that most Americans don’t care about the Russia investigation during the daily press briefing on Monday.
When asked if Donald Trump had plans to mention the Russia probe during his first State of the Union address scheduled for Tuesday night, Sanders said:
ITV aired Donald Trump’s interview with Piers Morgan on Sunday, and the president shared one of the least surprising revelations about himself — he’s not a feminist.“No, I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist,” he told Morgan. “That would be, maybe, going too far. I’m for women. I’m for men. I’m for everyone. I think people have to go out, and they have to win. And women are doing great, and I’m happy about that.” With this quote, Trump not only confirms the obvious fact of what his stance on feminism is, but he also proves that he doesn’t understand what the movement actually is.
TRUMP SAYS HE'S NOT A FEMINIST: @JoyVBehar reacts to the president saying "I'm for women, I'm for men": "Women are in trouble in the world. You need to be a feminist and put a spotlight on it … you don't have to talk about men in that case!" https://t.co/f8u2wc159S pic.twitter.com/ZowZJhZ6pb
Kushner Cos., a real estate company once run by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, can no longer keep the names of some of its business partners in Maryland private. U.S. District Court Judge James K. Bredar ruled on Friday that one of the company’s subsidiaries, Westminster Management, must reveal the names of its partners by Feb. 9 in an unsealed document.
New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker spoke to CNN on Friday about the urgent need for Congress to implement more checks and balances to keep President Trump under control and keep him from abusing his power.
Two weeks ago, The Wall Street Journal reported that Donald Trump allegedly paid $130,000 to former porn star Stephanie Clifford, who went professionally by the name “Stormy Daniels,” in exchange for her silence about a purported sexual encounter the two had in 2006.
Despite having promised to be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” Trump’s first year as president has cost tens of thousands of people jobs in at least one industry — tourism. As it turns out, having a leader who’s insulted various races, ethnicities, and religions has a negative impact on the number of people who want to visit your country.
Trump and his team’s stance on whether he’ll agree to a face-to-face interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller for the ongoing Russia probe keeps changing.
Last summer, Trump said he’d agree to being questioned “one hundred percent,” claiming he’d be “glad” to do so. But that was prior to the indictments of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, Papadopoulos’ guilty plea, former Trump confidant Steve Bannon’s deal to be interviewed by prosecutors, and several other developments that have heated up the investigation.
