    Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn on Wednesday criticized President Trump, saying she doesn't believe he represents the country well. "I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that," Vonn told CNN. She added that she hopes "to represent the people of the United States, not the president" at the upcoming Winter Olympics.
  • John McCain asked for 74 new Twitter followers to reach 3 million and immediately lost thousands

    The number of Twitter followers may have some intrinsic value in politics, and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona seems to be no exception to this rule. McCain tweeted Monday morning asking for assistance in gathering more followers to become one of the few sitting senators with at least three million followers. "We're only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M - spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!," McCain's tweet said. McCain's tweet seemed to have the opposite effect — he began steadily losing followers. As of this writing, McCain has 2,989,328, a big deficit from the...
  • NFL’s Olivier Vernon tells fans if they don’t like him kneeling, ‘don’t come to the game’

    New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon ignited an outcry after telling fans if they don’t approve of his decision to kneel for the national anthem, “don’t come to the game.” The retort came after Vernon, the only member of the Giants still regularly taking a knee, told reporters that he had been heckled by fans in response to his season-long protest. “You hear ‘coward’ and ‘stand up’ and ‘disgrace,’” Vernon said. “It’s fine. As long as nobody comes on the field and touches me. You stay where you at, you’re going to be all right. They have a right....

    A man in Australia was sacked after he relied on a 180-year-old scientific discovery to help prevent his colleagues discovering his whereabouts while he played golf during work hours. Tom Colella, a 60-year-old electrician in Perth, lost his job after an anonymous letter to his firm claimed that he left work to play golf at least 140 times over the last two years. Australia’s Fair Work Commission, a workplace tribunal, heard that Mr Colella blocked his whereabouts by storing his personal digital assistant, a phone-like device that has a GPS inside, in an empty foil packet of Twisties, a puffy...

    Time magazine released a list of 2017's best non-fiction books Tuesday, and the winning author is the candidate who finished second in the presidential election. Hillary Clinton's election memoir What Happened grabbed Time‘s No. 1 spot. The blurb accompanying the book's position on the list reads, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history." Clinton tweeted that she was honored for her placement the list. ✔ Wow. I wasn’t sure how letting my guard down would go...but...

    The party’s drift in that direction began years ago, the Arizona senator said, explaining, “We could not be the party of fiscal conservatism when we were ballooning our debt. So we started to wage in the cultural wars, started arguing about flag burning. And we’ve gotten further and further down that road. Donald Trump latched on to that and put it into hyper-drive. Unfortunately, voters have gone along with him.”

    It is not easy to expose the wrongdoing of powerful people or powerful organizations, especially if you have spent years in service to them. So, I tip my hat to Donna Brazile, a long-time Democratic Party operative and former interim chair of the DNC, for laying bare the mismanagement and exploitation of the organization she inherited last year. Brazile’s damning op-ed in Politico outlined the shocking truth behind the curtains at the DNC. While many speculated that the DNC was shilling for Hillary Clinton through the 2016 primaries, I don’t know if anyone truly recognized the extent of the institutionalized...

    As I contemplate the Trump presidency, I cannot help but think of Joseph Welch. On June 9, 1954, during the Army-McCarthy hearings, Welch, who was the chief counsel for the Army, famously asked the committee chairman if he might speak on a point of personal privilege. After asking Sen. Joseph McCarthy for his attention and telling him to listen with both ears, Welch spoke: “Until this moment, senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty, or your recklessness.” And then, in words that today echo from his time to ours, Welch delivered the coup de grace: “You’ve done enough....

    Friday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” filmmaker Ken Burns said many Confederate monuments were “all about the reimposition of white supremacy” after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision causing the desegregation of public schools. Burns said, “There is a professor — Barbara Fields — from Columbia University, and she says the civil war is still going on. Not only still going on, but it can also still be lost. Regrettably, it can still be lost … We haven’t resolved this the question of race.” He continued, “So the monuments is a big deal and we have to understand...

    There’s no such thing as a participation trophy for the left. So they have to make something up. The Women’s Media Center (WMC), founded by lefties Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, created an award this year for the sole purpose of having something to give to Hillary Clinton: the Wonder Woman Award. The press release reads like a remnant of the failed Clinton campaign of 2016: “The Women’s Media Center is presenting its first—and only—WMC Wonder Woman Award to Clinton as she is a hero to millions in the United States and around the globe for her extraordinary accomplishments and...

    CBS has shelled out a big pilot production commitment to Magnum P.I., an update of the classic 1980s Tom Selleck series set in Hawaii. It hails from Peter Lenkov, CBS/CBS Studios’ go-to writer for rebooting iconic procedurals who has successfully revived Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver, and Davis Entertainment (The Blacklist). Co-written by Lenkov and fellow Hawaii Five-0 executive producer/showrunner Eric Guggenheim, Magnum P.I. will feature the same central quartet of characters but, instead of four guys, it will consist of three men and a woman, with Higgins (played by John Hillerman) reconceived as Juliet Higgins. CBS/CBS Studios took a similar...

    Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett said that before NFL players and the league can move forward with their conversations about working together on social causes, the issue of Colin Kaepernick's unemployment must be addressed. "I think the first step to even being able to even have a conversation is making sure that Colin Kaepernick gets an opportunity to play in the NFL," Bennett said Wednesday. "I think before we even negotiate anything about whether we sit, whether we stand [during the national anthem], it should be a negotiation about opening up the doors for Colin Kaepernick and giving him...

    (CNN)George W. Bush doesn't talk much about politics in public. Which makes the speech he gave Thursday in New York City -- a point-by-point rejection of Trumpism -- all the more important and noteworthy. The 43rd president of the United States -- and the last Republican to hold the office before Donald Trump -- didn't mention the 45th president by name in his speech at the George W. Bush Institute. But Trump -- and his views -- were ever-present in the former President's address. Bush condemned "nationalism distorted into nativism." He derided "discourse degraded by casual cruelty." He acknowledged that...

  • Hillary Clinton Is Campaigning Again. That Doesn't Seem Like A Good Idea

    Newsweek ^ | September 28, 2017 | Harriet Sinclair
    Former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is hitting the campaign trail again — this time to raise funds for Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam. Northam, who is running for Governor of Virginia, faces a tight race against Republican candidate Ed Gillespie. Clinton took a break from her book tour to support the Democrat with a fundraiser next Wednesday. Given Clinton’s election loss, coupled with a recent poll from Rasmussen Reports that shows 61 percent of American voters believe the former secretary of state should retire from politics, it is perhaps something of a surprise to see Clinton once again pick up...
