    With just days to go before the election, President Trump has a lot of things on his mind. And water pressure for toilets appears to be one of them. In a lengthy digression during his rally in Carson City, Nev., on Sunday, Trump claimed that Americans have to “flush their toilet 15 times” due to restrictions on water usage. “You know what really bothers me? When you go into a new hotel or new house, they have these faucets, and you turn them on and no water comes out,” the president said. He then launched into an eight-minute story about...

    Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton gave speeches at the funeral for John Lewis, Democratic congressman who died earlier this month. Obama delivered the eulogy, and used it to level criticism at the Trump administration’s attacks on peaceful protesters and voting rights amid the coronavirus pandemic. “We can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators,” Obama said. “There are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting, by closing polling locations and targeting minorities with restrictive ID laws, attacking our voting rights with...

    Amid protests over the killings of Black citizens that have lasted almost a month, President Trump retweeted videos of Black men attacking white victims in separate incidents — one of which occurred last year — while wondering why they did not spark protests like the nationwide demonstrations over the death of George Floyd. Shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday, the president retweeted a Twitter thread about an October 2019 incident in which a 28-year-old Black man was seen on a video pushing a white woman on a subway platform in Brooklyn. “So terrible!” Trump tweeted. The woman was not hurt. The...

    Graham said that he and Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., plan to introduce “veto-proof” bipartisan sanctions that will call for Turkey’s suspension from NATO if it invades Syria and attacks Kurdish forces. “This decision to abandon our Kurdish allies and turn Syria over to Russia, Iran, & Turkey will put every radical Islamist on steroids,” Graham added. “Shot in the arm to the bad guys. Devastating for the good guys.” Nikki Haley, Trump’s former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was unequivocal in her criticism. We must always have the backs of our allies, if we expect them to have...

    President Trump on Friday claimed his campaign was “conclusively spied on” and suggested those responsible should be prosecuted for treason and sent to prison as Attorney General William Barr continued to defend his probe of the origins of the Russia investigation. “My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on,” Trump tweeted. “Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!”Trump has long claimed the FBI spied on his campaign and that the federal investigation into his campaign’s contacts with Russia was part of an “attempted coup” against...
  • Trump says there was 'illegal spying' on his campaign after Barr backs off explosive claim

    President Trump said Thursday that he agrees with Attorney General William Barr’s explosive, since-clarified assertion that he believes the FBI was “spying” on Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. “I think what he said was absolutely true — there was absolutely spying into my campaign,” Trump told reporters inside the Oval Office before a bilateral meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. “I’ll go a step further: It was illegal spying, unprecedented spying. And something that should never be allowed to happen in our country again. And I think his answer was a very accurate one.” On Wednesday, Barr touched off a...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation has broken its silence on the most popular file in its digital vault. The one-page memo, dated March 22, 1950, was addressed to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover from Guy Hottel, then head of the FBI's Washington, D.C., field office. It relayed some information from an informant. The subject: FLYING SAUCERS INFORMATION CONCERNING "An investigator for the Air Force stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico," Hottel writes. "They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter. Each one was occupied by three...

    Former President Jimmy Carter believes U.S. intelligence agencies are spying on him — so much so, he eschews email to avoid government spies. "You know, I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored," Carter told NBC's Andrea Mitchell in an interview broadcast Sunday. "And when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write a letter myself, put it in the post office and mail it. "I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored," Carter continued. The 89-year-old said the National Security Agency and others have abused the argument that gathering...

    Glenn Beck says he is no longer a member of the Republican Party. “I’ve made my decision — I’m out," Beck said on his radio show Wednesday, according to "I’m out of the Republican Party. I am not a Republican; I will not give a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out.” The former Fox News host and founder of the Blaze supported the GOP during the last election cycle but has become disillusioned with the party in recent years over what he believes was its failure to stand up to the Obama administration — specifically, the Affordable Care...

    In an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan that aired on Wednesday night, the former president was asked whether his wife or daughter would be better in the White House. "Day after tomorrow, my wife because she's had more experience," Clinton said. "Over the long run, Chelsea. She knows more than we do about everything. "There was a time in her childhood when I thought maybe she thought she did when she didn't, now it's highly embarrassing because she in fact does," he continued. "So, I feel like I'm going to school every day when we have a conversation." The 33-year-old...

    Predicting election results can be a tricky business. But according to a new study by Dartmouth College, you can often guess whether a female candidate will win an election by quickly looking at her face. "Female politicians with more feminine features tend to win elections, while those with more masculine features tend to lose," the authors of the study, published Thursday in the journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science, write. "Whether a female politician was going to win or lose an election could be predicted within just 380 milliseconds after participants were exposed to her face." Voters, the study...

    The senior senator who once told New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand not to lose "too much weight" because he liked his girls "chubby" was the late Hawaii Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, the New York Times reports. In a memoir published earlier this month, Gillibrand revealed that some of her male colleagues in Congress felt free to comment about her weight. “Don’t lose too much weight now," one "of my favorite older members of the Senate" told her, squeezing her waist. "I like my girls chubby!”

    The attacks by striking cab drivers on Uber cars in Paris on Monday — with protesters shattering windows, smashing mirrors and slashing tires — appear to be the first violent clashes in the ongoing battle between local cabbies and app-based car services.But tensions, in Paris and elsewhere, have been brewing for months. Cab drivers say Uber and apps like it, which allow customers to hitch rides nearly instantly from their smartphones, create unfair competition and undermine the traditional cab-hailing business. When Uber launched in New York, the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission reportedly pressured the drivers of licensed “yellow” taxis...

    It doesn't even look real. A hunter in North Carolina says he bagged a 500-pound wild pig last month. Jett Webb, a 34-year-old from Conetoe, N.C., was hunting boar at the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club in Bertie County on Feb. 28 when he spotted the giant swine. "It was very surreal,” Webb told WNCT-TV. “It was a shock. It was very humbling to say the least, when you walk up on a beast that big and you say, 'Oh my gosh. I had no idea that there could be something that big running around the woods of Eastern North...

    Would you pay $95 for a Ron Paul action figure? Revolution PAC, the super PAC supporting Paul's candidacy, is betting on it. Earlier this week, the group unveiled a pair of limited edition, talking action figures: a "Commander-in-Chief" Paul, replete with a the Texas Republican in a replica of one of his oversized suits, clutching a copy of the Constitution; and a "Super Hero" Paul donning Superman-like spandex. All proceeds, of course, go directly to the group's efforts to net Paul the Republican nomination.
