    This article is part of the Opinion Today newsletter. You can sign up here to receive the newsletter each weekday. When it comes to President Trump and race, there is a predictable cycle. He makes a remark that seems racist, and people engage in an extended debate about whether he is personally racist. His critics say he is. His defenders argue for an interpretation in which race plays a secondary role (such as: Haiti really is a worse place to live than Norway). It’s time to end this cycle. No one except Trump can know what Trump’s private thoughts or...

    Earlier today, President Trump denied saying that the TPS countries such as Haiti were "sh*tholes". I knew there were Democrats in the meeting, so I figured they would come forth with their side, and sure enough: Geoff Bennett ‏ @GeoffRBennett Sen. Dick Durbin now knocking down Trump's denial: "It's not true. He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly." https://twitter.com/GeoffRBennett/status/951820707461296128 People who attended the immigration meeting where Trump made his "shithole" comment: -President Donald Trump -Sen.

    "I had a friend that went to Paris over the holiday, and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be American,” Brzezinski claimed. “They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling.”.... Maybe Mika’s friends should stay in Paris if they’re too embarrassed to admit that they are American. We might be better off.
  • Meryl Streep attacks Melania and Ivanka Trump for their 'silence' on sexual harassment

    Award-winning actress Meryl Streep took a shot at first lady Melania Trump and White House adviser Ivanka Trump for their “silence” on sexual harassment. Hollywood and Washington have been grappling with sexual misconduct allegations in recent months, and numerous well-known men in the media, politics, and the entertainment industry have been forced to resign or were fired as accusations surface. In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, Streep was asked about her own silence on the allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein. “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about...

    Many of us came into 2017 expecting the worst. And the worst is what we got. Donald Trump has been every bit as horrible as one might have expected; he continues to prove himself utterly unfit for office, morally and intellectually. And the Republican Party turns out to be composed entirely of cynical apparatchiks, willing to sell out every principle — and every shred of their own dignity — as long as their donors get big tax cuts. Yet I’m ending this year with a feeling of hope, because tens of millions of Americans have risen to the occasion. The...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin headed to the United Nations in New York Thursday to ask for help fighting violence in Chicago.

Boykin boarded a plane to New York City for a meeting with an Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations. It's a meeting that's been planned for more than a month and stems from disconcerting violence numbers seen this year in Chicago. Violence which...

    The far left #FakeNews media has been wrong all year. The liberal mainstream media has pushed the conspiracy that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia during the 2016 election to defeat Hillary Clinton. This was all a lie. In fact, it was Hillary Clinton and the DNC who colluded to defeat Bernie Sanders in the primary and then colluded with Russia. Democrats and the Obama FBI paid cash for a fake Russian dossier so they could spy on Donald Trump at Trump tower. But Democrat voters are ignorant. And Democrats rely on the fact that they are stupid and...

(TWEET-AT-LINK) On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that four women said Moore pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 14 and 18. The most serious case involves Leigh Corfman, who was 14...
