  • Nancy Pelosi Blames Democratic Members For Not Having A Message

    06/26/2017 9:21:55 AM PDT · by DTXER · 37 replies
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blamed the members of the Democratic Party for not having a clear message during an interview on CBS News’ “This Morning” on Monday. CBS News’ Charlie Rose pointed out to Pelosi that Democrats have gone 0 and 4 in special elections in 2017 because people say that the Democratic Party has no message, aside from being anti-Trump. Pelosi told Rose that this assertion was not true and that the special elections were elections that the Democrats were never going to win. “There are 70 races that are easier for us than any of those....

  • Dem Rep: Democrats Can’t Win House with Nancy Pelosi as Leader

    06/22/2017 1:48:56 PM PDT · by TXFAN12 · 23 replies
    Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) said on Fox News on Thursday that Democrats could not win back the House of Representatives with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as their leader. “In the context of winning in 2018, and taking the majority, I think it is pretty clear that Leader Pelosi does not help our candidates in those swing districts that are so necessary for us to win in 2018,” Vela said. Vela also stood by his previous comments in which he labeled anyone who thought the Democrats could take back the House under Pelosi’s leadership “an idiot.” “I think that if we...

    Melania Trump’s latest look is a departure from the bright look she wore earlier this week at the White House. After wearing a light blue Michael Kors dress and floral Christian Louboutin pumps to meet with the president of Panama and his wife, she was spotted on Tuesday night wearing a black, long-sleeve lace Dolce & Gabbana dress that hit at her knees. She paired the dress with what appeared to be Manolo Blahnik’s BB pumps, although that’s not confirmed. President Donald Trump and Melania were on their way to dinner at the Naval Observatory, where Vice President Mike Pence...

    "If we're going to be able to create magical experiences with software, then the hardware will be the thing that people buy to go experience that," Microsoft corporate VP of devices Panos Panay told TIME during a recent interview. We were discussing his company's decision to release its first true laptop after years of selling hybrid computers, namely the Surface Laptop, which began shipping on June 15. "And [when] those two things work perfectly together in a seamless way, that brings elegance out," he added. If that approach sounds familiar — using the sleek, shiny allure of new gadgetry as...

    Ivanka Trump, you're fired. According to plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose, first lady Melania Trump has eclipsed first daughter and former fashion designer Ivanka - as a plastic surgery muse, anyway. "I've have had many women visit my office wanting the 'Ivanka look,'" Rose said in a press release on Monday. "So it's not really surprising to see women now requesting to look more like Melania, who is simply gorgeous." One such request came from Cypress mom and cancer survivor Claudia Sierra. "I want to feel like the first lady that I know I am inside," Sierra explained in the...

    Saudi Arabia-based fashion authority Marriam Mossalli discusses the popularity of vintage abayas, Melania Trump and the Dior "Feminist" T-shirt. "The same way women love shoes and bags, we love abayas,” says Saudi Arabia-based fashion authority Marriam Mossalli, founder of luxury fashion consultancy Niche Arabia and the fashion blog Shoes and Drama. “That’s what you’re seeing everyday.

    It seems the Trump family is making an effort to appear more approachable. After first lady Melania Trump caused a stir when she stepped out in a $51,500 coat during the G-7 summit last month, various members of the Trump family have been seen out in more approachable, everyday brands. Now it seems Dolce & Gabbana is out, while Target and J.Crew are in. Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's eldest daughter and one of his advisers, was photographed earlier this month leaving her house in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, DC, in a dress that was easily identified as a...

    Sam Panopoulos, who has died aged 83, leaves a legacy that has delighted, confused and appalled diners worldwide. Often at the same time. Panopoulos is the Canadian man who invented Hawaiian pizza, a dish so divisive it led to a presidential outburst this year. He passed away in hospital suddenly on Thursday. Panopoulos emigrated to Canada from Greece in 1954 when he was 20, eventually going on to own and operate several successful restaurants with his two brothers. It was in one of those restaurants in 1962 that Panopoulos was inspired to add canned pineapple to pizza.

    Even before President Donald Trump took office in January, there was talk about which fashion designers would — and would not — be interested in dressing first lady Melania Trump. In November, designer Sophie Theallet wrote an open letter to fellow designers asking them to join her in refusing to dress or associate with the first lady. Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Phillip Lim and Derek Lam all said publicly that they would not dress Melania. Others including Diane Von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Thom Browne said they would. In new interview with Surface magazine, Thom Browne shared more...

    First Lady of the United States, Melania and her husband, Donald have ended their first international trip.

From Saudi Arabia to Rome, Brussels to Israel and finally Italy, Melania Trump has proven that when it comes to style, she is one to respect.

    Melania Trump made her debut on the foreign stage Saturday, stepping off Air Force One in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, without a head scarf or abaya, the traditional black gown required for most women. “Thank you for a beautiful welcome to Riyadh,” she tweeted, along with a photo of herself in a pantsuit with large gold belt and matching gold detailing at the neck. Although her choice to appear bareheaded provoked a flurry of tweets, few here were surprised that the first lady chose to forego a head scarf. Michelle Obama did the same during a January 2015 visit with then-President...

    On Thursday night, President Trump welcomed Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball to New York City. Melania and POTUS hosted Turnball and his wife at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan. Though it was an event-filled night, packed with attendees like former mayor Rudy Giuliani and John Travolta, it was Melania who stole the show. FLOTUS veered from her traditional blue and black attire, instead opting for a yellow gown. The one-shoulder silk Dior silhouette was a gorgeous go-to for the spring event. Vogue compares the gown to her Inaugural ball dress -- both graceful off-the-shoulder gowns with...

    The Oscar-winning actor has been tight-lipped about the luxurious French Polynesian yacht cruise he went on with TV host Winfrey, rock legend Bruce Springsteen and the former U.S. President and First Lady, earlier this month (Apr17). But during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday (28Apr17), Hanks divulged that the trip was better than most people could ever imagine. "That made the news, it was really interesting. Both Oprah and I were really p***ed off," the 60-year-old joked. "Look, imagine what it could've been like it, triple it. It was off the scale, fantastic." Winfrey previously...

    To dress Melania Trump or not to dress Melania Trump? That seems to be the question—or rather, the ongoing topic of hot debate—for so many designers since Election Day as they figure out how to navigate this new volatile political landscape. And that brings us to the most up-to-date tally of who’s for or against the matter: Christian Siriano is the latest to state on the record that he won’t be designing for the First Lady. “I don’t think I would. I think for a while everyone was trying to figure out what to do,” the designer told Time. “Unfortunately,...
