    Jimmy Kimmel held his baby son as he returned to his late-night show after a week off for the boy’s heart surgery. Kimmel was crying from the first moment of his monologue Monday night as he pleaded with Congress to restore and improve children’s health coverage, a cause he has championed since his son Billy was born with a heart defect in April. Billy needed one surgery just after his birth and had a follow-up operation last week. …

    On CNN's "Twitter & Trump" special Tuesday night, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta recounted his Wikipedia page being vandalized after being called "fake news" by President Donald Trump. "The President of the United States called me fake news and on the day he called me fake news, somebody went on my Wikipedia page and changed my Wikipedia page to say that I had died that day, that I had died on January 11, 2017," Acosta said. "Really," host Bill Weir flatly replied. "That had to be taken down. I turned off my Twitter notifications because it became sort of...

    “Our system in our country is the most difficult political environment in the world of any democracy to elect a leader.” Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is hopeful that a woman from any background can run for the United States presidency in the near future. But that candidate needs to fully understand what she’s up against. “You have to be prepared for what it means to literally be brutalized,” the former secretary of state said Thursday at BookExpo America in New York City, the publishing industry’s annual gathering. “It is unlike any experience she has ever had before. Our system...

    New York (CNN) — Hillary Clinton delivered her most forceful critique of President Donald Trump's 2016 victory on Tuesday, taking personal responsibility for her failed campaign but also pointed to the timing of a letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference as factors. "If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president," she told CNN's Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York. "I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems,...

    The same people who just voted no on Paul Ryan's bill because it wasn't "conservative" enough, are the same people who voted to make Paul Ryan speaker of the House. Why? Was Ryan more conservative back then, then he is today? Did Ryan promise them something, in order to get their vote. Or is the FC just a bunch of hypocrites. I think honest people know the answer.

    Singer John Legend ripped President Donald Trump in a feature for Fault magazine’s latest issue. Asked how he’s raising his daughter, Luna, in the era of Trump, Legend said: “Hopefully ‘Trump’s America’ won’t last very long and we get him out of here within the next four years.” “By the time Luna is old enough to be aware of what is happening, America would have elected a far better president,” the ten-time Grammy-winner said. Legend was a fierce supporter of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy; he performed last summer at an all-star concert fundraiser for the former Democratic nominee. The “Darkness and...

    I spent a good chunk of the holiday break in a cabin with a spectacular view of a bay just off the Pacific Ocean outside the tiny town of Inverness north of San Francisco. It reminds me of the view from the cabin I grew up with in the American heartland, outside the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Looking out over the natural beauty of this amazing country of ours helped me think through the tumultuous past year with a big-picture, more timeless perspective. It helped me get clear about what lies ahead. The Brexit vote in England and then the...

    There has been a great deal of hand-wringing lately, particularly in progressive circles, about how a Trump presidency could destroy American democracy: the end of free speech and a free press, the influence of money in politics rising to the level of a true oligarchy, Supreme Court appointments that end cherished civil rights, like abortion rights, voting rights, and equal protection. These changes could be coming, and they could be every bit as destructive to the core values of our democracy as many people fear. But a Trump presidency poses a far more direct, permanent, and existential threat to our...

    As for many of you, last Tuesday was a very bad day for me.... Is our next president a demagogue or democrat? ...I have been involved in politics for more than 50 years, and this is certainly not the first time I've been on the losing end. It always hurts. And this one maybe hurts more than the rest — partly because we didn't really lose. Our side got more popular votes, while Trump received fewer votes than Mitt Romney or John McCain. ...The Founding Fathers provided tools to combat the demagogues they knew might come along. We merely need...

    An Iowa lawmaker has one thing to say to state universities that spend taxpayer dollars on election-related sit-ins and grief counseling: “Suck it up, buttercup.” “I’ve seen four or five schools in other states that are establishing ‘cry zones’ where they’re staffed by state grief counselors and kids can come cry out their sensitivity to the election results,” said Rep. Bobby Kaufmann (R-Wilton) to the Des Moines Register. “I find this whole hysteria to be incredibly annoying. People have the right to be hysterical … on their own time.” Kaufmann plans to introduce new legislation in January that he calls...

That’s a terrible feeling for a father. I won’t sugarcoat it — this is truly horrible,” Sorkin wrote. “It’s hardly the...

    A profile of Secretary of State John Kerry published Sunday in The New Yorker reveals that, 11 years after his election loss to George W. Bush in 2004, Kerry still believes he was robbed via systematic fraud. The article itself, written by David Remnick, focuses mostly on Kerry’s efforts to achieve peace and democracy in the Middle East, but it also dwells extensively on his presidential defeat more than a decade ago. “In 2004, when Kerry lost the Presidential race to George W. Bush, who is widely considered the worst President of the modern era, he refused to challenge the...
