Fresh off of berating Kellyanne Conway for all but refusing to admit that her employer, Donald Trump, isn’t doing well with women ahead of the election, Megyn Kelly brought out fellow Fox News host Dana Perino to talk about Trump’s reported mistreatment of the former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado. Kelly and Perino discussed just how bad it is that the story has been dominating the press for 48 hours and Kelly reminded viewers that in August of 2015, she gave Trump the chance to prepare for future questions about his misogynistic statements. He spent nine months feuding with her because
Is anyone surprised by this corruption? When FBI Director James Comey said that the organization would not be seeking to bring charges against Hillary Clinton over her illegal email server, anyone paying attention knew there was a deep level of corruption. Now, it’s been made clear. James Comey received millions of dollars from the corrupt Clinton Foundation, and his brother’s law firm also does the Clinton’s taxes. According to a letter sent by 200 Republicans who stated Clinton “clearly placed our nation’s secrets in peril,” Comey was asked why he would not bring charges against her. “No one is above the
A member of the Wall Street Journal´s editorial board has urged Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton to avoid a potentially disastrous Donald Trump presidency. "Her election alone is what stands between the American nation and the reign of the most unstable, proudly uninformed, psychologically unfit president ever to enter the White House," Dorothy Rabinowitz, a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for the newspaper, wrote in an opinion piece. Under the headline "Hillary-Hatred Derangement Syndrome," the article mounts a blistering attack on Trump and the "Never Hillary forces" who are willing to support the Republican nominee in order to prevent his Democratic opponent
Jeb Bush sounded off on reports that his father, former President George H.W. Bush, would vote for Hillary Clinton in November. "I thought it was a little inappropriate for a person to overhear a frail 92-year-old man, in a private setting, at a reception for the Points of Light Foundation - which focuses on volunteerism - to hear this and immediately go on Facebook and put it on there, and then go on national television and not even show up at the board meeting," Bush said to reporters Thursday after giving a lecture about education reform at Harvard. "I thought that was
For the third consecutive week, ratings for the National Football League (NFL) have plummeted, as players continue anti-American protests during the playing of the national anthem. This week’s drop-off also coincided with the Monday broadcast of the first presidential debate between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. Ratings for Sunday Night Football featuring the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys scored a 12.9 Nielsen rating, down from the game’s 13.7 rating last week. Week two, in turn, was down from week one’s 13.9 rating, according to Sports Business Daily. Ratings also dropped more than they did during week three
The Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. We´re doing it now. In the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. Instead, we’ve expressed opinions about the major issues and haven’t presumed to tell our readers, who have a variety of priorities and values, which choice is best for them. Because every presidential race is different, we revisit our no-endorsement policy every four years. We’ve never seen reason to alter our approach. Until now. This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to
Jeb Bush is denying a report that claimed he´s voting for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. Bush says he hasn´t made a decision and suggested he may not cast a ballot at all. ´If everybody didn´t vote, that would be a pretty powerful political statement, wouldn´t it?´ he said, according to CNN, after he was asked what would happen if other voters followed his lead. The Republican politician´s father George H.W. Bush had his plans to cross party lines at vote for Hillary Clinton revealed by Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) blasted the GOP-controlled Senate on Thursday, saying Republicans have been focused on undercutting President Obama and boosting Donald Trump. "I feel compelled to comment on how Republicans have treated the president of the United States during the last eight years," he said Thursday. "History will look back and note the Republicans in Congress treated President Obama with unprecedented disrespect." Reid´s comments come as the Senate is expected to leave town until November, giving the outgoing Democratic leader one last chance to knock Republicans from the Senate floor before the elections. He added Thursday that
As Nov. 8 looms, a dismayed, disconsolate America waits and wonders: What is it about 2016? How has our country fallen so inescapably into political and policy gridlock? How did pandering to aggrieved niche groups and seducing blocs of angry voters replace working toward solutions as the coin of our governing class? How could the Democratic and Republican parties stagger so far from this nation´s political mainstream? And the most pressing question: What should tens of millions of voters who yearn for answers do with two major-party candidates they disdain? Polls show an unprecedented number of people saying they wish
When you’re an ex-president, paying your respects to a fellow world leader is the right thing to do. But something seems to have gone terribly wrong with the positioning of Bill Clinton‘s yarmulke at former Israeli President Shimon Peres‘ funeral. Pretty sure this is not how it’s worn. If Clinton glances to his left, he can get a sense of the proper perch.
Republican lawmakers are urging Donald Trump not bring up Bill Clinton´s sexual dalliances when he takes on Hillary Clinton at the next debate. Talking about Monica Lewinsky, Gennifer Flowers, Juanita Broaddrick and other women Clinton has admitted to sleeping with or has been accused of manhandling will only serve as a ´distraction,´ they´re warning - the former first lady has other vulnerabilities he can tap into that are less ´sensitive.´ ´I hope he doesn´t,´ Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker, also the chair of the GOP´s campaign arm in the Senate, told Politico. ´He oughta stick to how he´s going to make life better
According to Oregonlive.com, circuit court judge Kenneth Walker of Multnomah County, Ore. decided to go on a tangent about gun control during a criminal sentencing on Monday. "If I could, I would take all the guns in America, put them on big barges and go dump them in the ocean," the judge said. "Nobody would have a gun. Not police, not security, not anybody. We should eliminate all of them." Oregonlive.com reports, the judge made his comments during the sentencing of Marcell Lee Daniel Jr. who killed an innocent man in a drive-by shooting in 2014. "They are a scourge of this
