A Trump-inspired “Make America Great Again” swimsuit is making a big splash this summer. The metallic blue one-piece is by far this summer’s most popular choice for Trump supporters, the Daily Mail reports. It’s also creating a social media craze, the paper reports. "Make America Great Again" was the slogan of Donald Trump´s campaign for president. The swimsuit retails online for $40. There’s a Babe For Trump Instagram page featuring women in the swimwear, according to the paper. The images are recent postings. “History is written by the dreamers not the doubters,” is the caption, accompanying one of the images.

CLEVELAND — A former Oberlin College instructor and an activist for indigenous people was indicted this week for allegedly stealing funds from the American Indian Education Center of Cleveland, where he is executive director. Robert Roche, 70, of Cleveland, is charged in the U.S. District of Northern Ohio with multiple counts of conspiracy and theft of government funds. (Snip) Roche, who was an instructor of American Indian History at Oberlin College in 2005-06, was a proponent of getting rid of the “Indians” name and Native American logo at Oberlin Schools in 2006. He also has said the Cleveland Indians’ Chief
President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump flew to Houston on Saturday morning for their second trip to Texas since Hurricane Harvey ravaged the state. (Snip) Melania, heeding none of the criticism she received earlier in the week for wearing towering stilettos for the journey, stuck with sky scraper heels again. She paired her snakeskin pumps with a khaki dress and wore her signature pair of sunglasses. An aide toted two Louis Vuitton bags carrying a change of outfit for her. President Trump was dressed in a more weather appropriate outfit of a rain coat, shirt and dark trousers. He
Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway blasted liberals who criticized first lady Melania Trump´s sky-high heels that she wore as she left the White House Tuesday to visit flood-ravaged Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. ´Predictable,´ Conway said of the outcry. ´Look, we saw what was in the president´s and first lady´s hearts that day, not what was on their feet, and it suggested to me ... that the left is really worried that the president is successfully showing leadership and compassion and empathy and resolve and action.´
Melania Trump is the kind of woman who travels to a flood-ravaged state in a pair of black snakeskin stilettos. Heels this high are not practical. But Trump is not the kind of woman who has to be practical. Heels this high are not comfortable. Comfort is not the point. Neither hers nor yours. (Snip) Trump’s fashionable ensemble was defined by its contradictions. She was wearing a working man’s jacket but it was juxtaposed with sexy limousine shoes. The trousers and the top were basic black — utilitarian. The oversize aviator sunglasses were Hollywood. It’s an image that would have
In case you needed reminding, Melania Trump is indeed FLOTUS. The first lady sent the internet ablaze--hours after sparking uproar for her stilettos--when she landed in Corpus Christi wearing a black hat with "FLOTUS" emblazoned on the front. Melania and President Trump are currently in Texas to assess the damage done by Hurricane Harvey in its aftermath. Melania looked like she was in good spirits, despite the backlash over shoes, in a white button-down, black trousers and a pair of white sneakers as she exited Air Force One.
Donald Trump is being undermined by White House insiders who would rather have worked for Hillary Clinton, according to former deputy assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka. Gorka, who disputed reports he was asked to leave his role and insisted he resigned shortly after the departure of Steve Bannon, slammed West Wing insiders in an interview with Radio 4 on Sunday. “Hopefully everybody who followed the campaign of Donald J Trump understood that he won against immense odds. Our victory was an insurgency that took over the behemoth that is the swamp that is the Washington administrative state. It was
A wallpaper company in Pennsylvania was shocked when it received an order from the White House earlier this month. So shocked, in fact, that the owners at York Wallcoverings actually thought it was some sort of prank, Fox 43 reported. It wasn´t, and the company quickly realized they had a long day ahead of them - the White House wanted the wallpaper delivered by 7pm that same day. (Snip) Though it was a difficult task - the company was up for the challenge, as it meant their wallpaper would hang in the Oval Office.
Gunfire, involving live ammunition, will erupt Saturday near the White House and the Vice President’s residence in a test by the Secret Service. The agency said it will run a “live fire” calibration of a system that makes it possible to determine exactly when and where shots are fired near the two high-security sites. In the tests, which will run into early Sunday, shots will be fired into a “bullet trap,” an installation designed to prevent them from going astray. The trap has been tested and validated, according to the agency. Shooting will be in three-shot increments, the Secret Service
The left has upped the stakes in its guerilla operations against Republicans, as deep-pocketed groups fund protesters to show up to the offices and even houses of congressmen to protest their lack of "town hall" meetings. (Snip) Local chapters of a left-wing group called “Indivisible” helped organize and lead those two protests. The targets say the whole operation is part of a one-two punch orchestrated from the top, in which left-wing groups throw their first punch by rounding up activists and training them to be as disruptive as possible during representatives’ town halls. Then, when lawmakers stop holding those events,
Donald Trump reportedly called the White House ´a real dump´ this summer - that´s a claim he later denied, but either way he´d be hard pressed to make such a remark now that a two-week-long renovation has wrapped up. As seen in these photos, the exterior of the building, along with the Oval Office, Roosevelt Room and other areas of the West Wing have been given an overhaul. But the real work went on beneath the building´s floors and in its walls, as the ailing HVAC system was replaced, the heating system upgraded and IT infrastructure given a boost.`
Oberlin — With enthusiasm, the Oberlin City Council changed the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. The unanimous vote for the resolution was anticipated, though it was not without opposition. Council voted about 8:15 p.m. Monday after nearly an hour of public comment from people for and against replacing the federally recognized holiday.
Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.
President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s tête-à-tête on Tuesday — after a summer of sniping between the two — lifted Republican hopes that the GOP was finally back in sync ahead of a brutal fall of fiscal deadlines.Not 24 hours later, the president cut a deal with Democrats on a short-term debt ceiling increase opposed by McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. Just Wednesday morning, in fact, Ryan had scoffed at the Democratic offer that Trump accepted minutes later. In the aftermath, Republicans seethed privately and distanced themselves publicly from the deal.
The American Civil Liberties Union is warning President Trump that only Congress can authorize a military strike on North Korea as tensions with Pyongyang continue to run hot. “The American Civil Liberties Union strongly urges you to uphold the Constitution, and the fundamental principle of separation of powers, by recognizing the sole authority of Congress to declare war — and to refrain from the use of force against North Korea in the absence of explicit congressional authorization for the use of force,” the group wrote in a letter to Trump on Tuesday. “This drumbeat of threats over the past several
She still doesn’t get it. In her forthcoming memoir ‘What Happened” (out Tuesday), Hillary Clinton takes perfunctory responsibility for losing the election before spending nearly 500 pages blaming: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, “rash FBI director” James Comey, Obama, the Russians, sexism, and, finally, the American people for not liking her enough. Sanders, she writes, had the gall to run against her even though he’s not a Democrat. “That’s not a smear, that’s what he says,” she writes. “He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.” Clinton bemoans the sexism
Last week, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released news that they’d found evidence that in April and May 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey prepared a statement letting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off the hook for her alleged mistreatment of classified information. As the senators noted, “As of early May 2016, the FBI had not yet interviewed Secretary Clinton. Moreover, it had yet to finish interviewing sixteen other key witnesses, including Cheryl Mills, Bryan Pagliano, Heather Samuelson, Justin Cooper and John Bentel. These individuals had intimate and personal knowledge relating to Secretary Clinton’s non-government server, including
(Video) - In her new memoir of the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton offers this analysis on why she lost: "I think it´s fair to say that I didn´t realize how quickly the ground was shifting under all our feet... I was running a traditional presidential campaign with carefully thought-out policies and painstakingly built coalitions, while Trump was running a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans´ anger and resentment." Which is true. She ran a campaign larded with policy papers, with serious thoughts about serious things, with poll-tested stump speech lines designed to give some to everyone but all to no one.
The Washington National Cathedral will remove two stained glass windows featuring Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, the church said Wednesday, joining a growing list of cities and institutions that have removed statues of Confederate figures in the wake of last month´s violence in Charlottesville, Va. The National Cathedral said the Cathedral Chapter, its governing body, voted Tuesday to immediately take the windows down. Scaffolding was erected Wednesday morning as crews began the process of removing the stained glass windows, according to the Washington Post. The windows of Lee and Jackson were installed in 1953, and the National
Hillary Clinton has added another name her long list of grievances about those who cost her the election, this time singling out energized anti-Trump women marchers for failing to deliver before her historic loss. Clinton referenced the throngs of protesters who took the streets of Washington and other cities in a Women´s march shortly after his election. (Snip) Clinton also goes after NBC´s ´Today Show´ host Matt Lauer for his handling of a presidential forum, conducted on the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York last September. She writes that she was ´ticked off´ and ´almost physically sick´ by Lauer´s persistent focus
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is blaming Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for doing “lasting damage” to her campaign and “paving the way” for President Trump’s attack against her as “Crooked Hillary.” According to excerpts of Clinton’s new campaign tell-all book, “What Happened,” Clinton claims that she wanted to fight back against Sanders’s characterization of her as beholden to corporate influence but that then-President Obama and others advised her to stay quiet. “Throughout the primaries, every time I wanted to hit back against Bernie’s attacks, I was told to restrain myself,” Clinton writes. “Noting that his plans didn’t add up, that they
Hillary Clinton is still “at a loss” about her loss. In leaked excerpts from her upcoming election memoir “What Happened,” the defeated Democratic candidate admits to mistakes, regrets and “dumb” moves from her presidential bid — but says she still does not understand why so many Americans oppose her. “What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I´m really asking. I´m at a loss,” she asks in the book. “I think it´s partly because I´m a woman.” (Snip) “I go back over my own shortcomings and the mistakes we made. I take responsibility for all of them. You can
Late on a Monday afternoon in June, members of CNN’s elite investigations team were summoned to a fourth-floor room in the network’s glassy headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. A top CNN executive, Terence Burke, had startling news: three of their colleagues, including the team’s executive editor, were leaving the network in the wake of a retracted article about Russia and a close ally of President Trump. Effective immediately, Mr. Burke said, the team would stop publishing stories while managers reviewed what had gone wrong. It was a chilling moment for a unit that boasted Pulitzer Prize winners and superstar internet sleuths,
Hundreds of high school students in Denver walked out of classes on Tuesday morning to protest against the Trump administration´s announcement that it will rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The students were from several schools in the area and gathered together at a number of locations to protest against the President Donald Trump ending the program that currently affects 800,000 undocumented immigrants in the U.S. Dozens were spotted at Barnum Park at West Sixth Avenue and Federal, KDVR reported. West High School students gathered in Sunken Gardens Park and walked to Lincoln Park, while another large group of
Excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s memoir surfacing online reveal her most personal thoughts on her marriage with former President Bill Clinton. In Clinton’s upcoming book, titled, “What Happened,” she opens up about her marriage with Bill and admits she openly contemplated divorce. “I heard it again on the 2016 campaign … it’s just a marriage on paper now,” she writes. She also writes, “There were times that I was deeply unsure about whether our marriage could or should survive.” “But on those days, I asked myself the questions that mattered to me: Do I still love him? And can I still
