    MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on Friday rebuffed President Trump’s claim that the media was “biased” toward Hillary Clinton , saying he believes it actually “was pretty damn hostile” to the former secretary of State during last year’s campaign. Scarborough’s comments on “Morning Joe” came after Trump tweeted on Friday morning that "biased and dishonest Media coverage" tilted in favor of his Democratic opponent. (TWEET-AT-LINK) "I think the fake news media was pretty damn hostile toward Hillary Clinton throughout most of the campaign," Scarborough said. ”So that's just — that's just fake news, Donald. Just fake news," he added. "Morning Joe" panelist...

    U.S. Sen. Susan Collins all but said she would vote “no” on an Affordable Care Act repeal bill on Friday morning at an event in Portland. “I’m leaning against the bill,” the Maine Republican said after listing a series of serious deficiencies in the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill. “I’m just trying to do what I believe is the right thing for the people of Maine,” Collins said. She said Graham-Cassidy undermines pre-existing conditions, a major flaw in the bill. “I’m reading the fine print on Graham-Cassidy,” Collins said. She said insurers could charge sky-high rates to people with pre-existing conditions. “The...

    Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland will be the keynote speaker at an upcoming event organized by a group called Duty to Warn. Duty to Warn has called for President Trump’s removal from office under the 25th Amendment on the grounds that he is not psychologically fit to serve. From the Hill: Raskin is expected to discuss legislation he introduced earlier this year to establish an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity that can determine if the president is incapacitated. His bill currently has 31 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats. Under the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, the vice president and a majority...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to strengthen their defense posture amid rising tensions with North Korea, the White House said on Friday. Trump and Moon, who met on Thursday, committed to strengthen their "combined defense posture, including through South Korea’s acquisition and development of highly advanced military assets" and "agreed to the enhanced deployment of U.S. strategic assets in and around South Korea on a rotational basis," the White House said in a statement....

    NBC's Megyn Kelly said in an interview that "there are so many reporters who are completely biased against Trump, it’s absurd," but also noted doesn’t change the fact that he puts them in a dangerous place by targeting them." Kelly's interview with TVNewser.com published Friday comes as her new 9:00 a.m. ET program "Megyn Kelly Today" is set to launch on NBC as the third hour of "The Today Show" on Monday. The 46-year-old former attorney also believes reporters are being roped into personal battles with President Trump instead of staying "on the sidelines where they belong." "It’s not the...

    Liberals have welcomed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the resistance against President Donald Trump after he released a statement calling Trump a "dotard" and "mentally deranged." "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire," Kim said. Dotard is an elderly person, especially one who has become weak or senile. Kim added that Trump will "pay dearly" for his remarks before the United Nations on Tuesday warning the U.S. will "totally destroy North Korea" if forced to defend itself or its allies. Human rights organizations consider North Korea under Kim's rule to be one...

    President Donald Trump’s approval ratings have continued to rise because of the president’s “leadership and compassion,” Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera said Friday on “Fox and Friends.” “It’s no accident that his approval rating across the board is ticking up,” Rivera said. “Why is that? It’s because he has shown leadership and compassion and understanding of suffering in terms of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and now Hurricane Maria. He has really stepped up to the plate.” “The other reason the president’s popularity ticked up is this strength and reason and steadiness he is showing with the ‘Rocket Man,'” he added....

    Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence,...

    The Trump administration is getting ready to add countries to its list of six nations whose citizens are banned from traveling to the U.S. due to national security concerns, according to a report Friday morning. The Department of Homeland Security proposal would go into effect Sunday, the expiration of the 90-day travel ban against select countries in the Middle East and North Africa. DHS recently flagged 17 unspecified nations that have failed to meet U.S. standards for screening travelers and ignored other government mandates. About half of those countries made changes to be more in line with U.S. security standards,...

    ABC News ^ | September 22, 2017 | Morgan Winsor
    If North Korea follows through on its latest threat of setting off a nuclear explosion over the Pacific Ocean, it will ultimately be up to President Trump whether the United States will respond with military action, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told ABC News today. ABC News Anchor David Muir asked Tillerson in an interview on "Good Morning America" about North Korea's warning that it could detonate a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific in response to Trump's speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week. "If we see this detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific, what will the...

    I've been haunted by a claim my KCRW colleague Rich Lowry made on our radio show a few weeks ago: Democrats keep coming up short in elections because they won't give any ground on "cultural issues" to win back the working-class voters they've alienated over the past decades. On one hand, it's obviously true that Democrats suffer from a cultural disconnect from non-college-educated voters who have abandoned the party in droves. Democrats believe their economic agenda should appeal to people with lower incomes, yet income has become a poor predictor of partisan alignment; Democrats' substantial inroads with upscale suburban voters...

    Roy Moore, a Republican US Senate candidate in Alabama, said in a 2005 interview that he believes "homosexual conduct" should be illegal. Moore, a hardline conservative Christian and former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, made the comments in an interview with liberal commentator Bill Press on C-SPAN2's After Words. Moore appeared on the show to publicize a book he had just written about his expulsion from the court for refusing to take down a monument to the Ten Commandments.

    Supporters of President Trump have compiled a list containing personal information on thousands of people they believe are either opposed to Trump or associated with left-wing "antifascist" or "antifa" groups. The list, reported by BuzzFeed, has been circulated and added to on the internet since at least April. The list, which began on 4Chan’s controversial /Pol/ board as a loose collection of names, phone numbers, addresses and social media accounts of Trump critics, has since grown into an organized document spread across the internet. The list has also been posted on text repository site Pastebin. Several versions of the list...

    You'd think Hillary Clinton's fans in the news and entertainment industries would've moved on from the 2016 election by now. But you'd be wrong. Many reporters, singers, anchors, actors, editors, and funnymen are still in mourning over the former secretary of state's second botched attempt at capturing the White House. Some are in greater pain than others, but even those who are trying to hide their grief show obvious signs they're not quite ready to concede she lost to a former reality TV host. Late-night comedian Stephen Colbert, for example, embodied this sort of gloomy wistfulness this week when he...

    President Donald Trump said Thursday he’ll visit Puerto Rico, adding that the island was “absolutely obliterated" by Hurricane Maria. This week, Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, knocking out 100 percent of electrical power, destroying infrastructure and causing widespread flooding and mudslides. The Category 4 hurricane came as Puerto Rico was recovering from Hurricane Irma, which struck the U.S. territory earlier in September. “Puerto Rico is in very, very tough shape. Their electrical grid is destroyed. It wasn't in good shape to start off with, but their electrical grid is totally destroyed, and so many other things,” Trump said Thursday,...

    A black writer coming to Campbell University on Sept. 26 to talk about racism on college campuses has said President Donald Trump is a white supremacist, and the school is being criticized for hosting him. California-based Lawrence Ross, author of “The Divine Nine: The History of African American Fraternities and Sororities,” and “Blackballed: The Black & White Politics of Race on America’s Campuses,” is scheduled to speak at Campbell as part of “Risky Business Week.” On Sept. 13, Ross tweeted, “Whether or not Donald Trump is a white supremacist is settled law.

    Ellen DeGeneres told Megyn Kelly during her show Wednesday that she wouldn’t have President Donald Trump on because he’s “dangerous to the country” and “the world.” “I just, you know, he is who he is, and he has enough attention, and he has his Twitter account, and he has ways to get his message across,” the 59-year-old host of “The Ellen DeGerenes Show” explained. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “There’s nothing that I am going to say to him that is going to change him, and I don’t want to give him a platform because it just validates him,” she added. “And for me...

    When Boca Raton lawyer James Herb filed legal papers last year to have President Donald Trump declared mentally unfit, he had no inkling his personal crusade would earn him a spot in a book that longtime liberal political pundit Bill Moyers said should become “an instant best-seller.” Along with more than a dozen of the nation’s top psychiatrists and mental health experts, Herb was invited to write a chapter in “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President,” a 360-page call to action that is to be released Tuesday by St. Martin’s Press....
