    Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen reportedly attempted to apologize to the president’s wife, Melania Trump, over the payment he made to cover up his client’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels. Cohen approached and tried to say sorry to the first lady earlier this year at a GOP fundraiser held at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort, The New York Times reported Friday. The Times story did not detail what, if any, response the first lady had to Cohen at the time. The first lady has been silent on the alleged affair, even as additional details have emerged. A spokeswoman for Melania...

    Friendly advice to Chris Cuomo: when mocking President Trump over a spelling mistake, try to avoid making a mistake yourself . . . On CNN this morning, Cuomo went out of his way to note that in a tweet about James Comey, the prez misspelled “shady” as “shadey.” Continued Cuomo: “unless [Trump was] maybe referring to Slim Shadey, the alternate persona of Eminem.” Here’s the problem, Chris: Eminem spells it Slim Shady. Not Slim Shadey. Ruh-roh! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    President Donald Trump is poised to pardon Scooter J. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, according to sources familiar with the president’s thinking. The president has already signed off on the pardon, which is something he has been considering for several months, sources told ABC News. The move would mark another controversial pardon for Trump and could raise questions as an increasing number of the president’s political allies have landed themselves in legal jeopardy. The White House has repeatedly said that no pardons are currently on the table for people caught up in the Russia...

    GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) — The first notes of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” had just played when Gabriella Papadakis suddenly became aware that people were about to see a whole lot more of her shape than she had planned. The French ice dancer’s glittering emerald costume at the Olympics had come unhooked at the neckline and later in the routine her left breast was exposed live on television. When the clasp became unhooked, the 22-year-old Papadakis was more worried about holding up her outfit than making sure her twizzles and rhumba were in sync. Her swinging short program with...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” when asked about Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said it was a “gossipy book” that should not be treated seriously. Paul said, “I guess my first response this was sort of gossipy book, like Kitty Kelly book back when I was in high school, nobody really believed them. They were treated as sort of like a sitcom or treated as a television show. They weren’t treated seriously by the media.”

    Former first daughter Malia Obama has reportedly been spotted partying all over Cambridge, Massachusetts, during her first semester at Harvard University. Celebrity gossip website Radar Online reports the eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama has been sighted by multiple social media users as she parties and enjoys her freshman year of college.

Another user reported seeing "a very lit Malia Obama in Harvard square." A third user reportedly...

    At the end of a meeting with President Donald Trump this fall about the Middle East peace process, attorney Alan Dershowitz turned the conversation to a matter closer to home: The prison sentence of Sholom Rubashkin, the Kosher meatpacking executive then serving a 27-year prison sentence for bank fraud. Rubashkin, whose kosher meat firm AgriProcessors was the subject of a Forward expose in 2006 over the mistreatment of its workers, has been a case célèbre in some circles since his conviction in 2010. Dershowitz is among Rubashkin’s most prominent supporters — and was probably the first to bring the matter...

    Liz Smith, who chronicled the gossip among New York City's rich and scandalous for 60 years and played a key role in the high-profile divorce between Donald and Ivana Trump, has died, the New York Post, her former employer, said.

    In possibly the biggest example yet that it’s the mainstream press and not the so called “fringe sites” who really produce the most actual fake news. New evidence has now come to light that the Washington Post’s now infamous hit piece on Judge Roy Moore might in fact be a complete fabrication, or at least a carefully planned exaggeration of the truth. This of course hasn’t stopped leading RINO elements of the GOP from calling for Moore’s head. As according to the likes of Mitt Romney, the American principle of innocent until proven guilty somehow doesn’t apply in politics. The...

    In the new normal of 2017, in which far-right and far-left militants clash openly in America’s public square, a contentious 20th century debate is newly relevant: is the extreme left as dangerous and repugnant as the extreme right? Should the hammer and sickle be as offensive as the swastika? Was Communism as evil as Nazism — a question sure to generate plenty of heat as we approach the 100th anniversary of the Russian revolution? Conservatives have long complained of a double standard for Nazi and Communist crimes. To manyon theleft, on the other hand, equating Communism and Nazism is an...
