    Marjorie Taylor Greene put up a sign outside her office proclaiming 'there are TWO genders' after her congressional hall mate Marie Newman, who has a trans daughter, put up a trans pride flag outside her office as the two publicly feud over legislation bolstering trans rights. 'Our neighbor, [Marjorie Taylor Greene], tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is 'disgusting, immoral, and evil,' Rep. Newman tweeted. 'Thought we'd put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door,' she continued including a winking face and transgender...

    President Donald Trump appeared to narrowly avoid falling over as he walked up to the podium at a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday evening. Video shows Trump flailing his arms while steadying himself a few feet from the lectern after disembarking from Air Force One. "Looks like he almost tripped," Liz Willis, a Right Side Broadcasting network announcer, remarked during a livestream of the event. "I'm sure he will make a joke out of that one in just a moment." Trump's rally in New Hampshire is his first campaign event since accepting the Republican Party nomination for a...

    Four of Tom Petty's family members came together Saturday night to quickly release a statement blasting the president for using the rocker’s “I Won’t Back Down” at his Tulsa campaign rally, saying Petty “would never want a song of his used for a campaign of hate. He liked to bring people together.” The statement said that Donald Trump “was in no way authorized to use this song to further a campaign that leaves too many Americans and common sense behind. Both the late Tom Petty and his family firmly stand against racism and discrimination of any kind.” The declaration was...

    The traditional White House portrait unveiling may be skipped for the first time in decades amid bad blood between Trump and Obama. WASHINGTON — It’s been a White House tradition for decades: A first-term president hosts a ceremony in the East Room for the unveiling of the official portrait of his immediate predecessor that will hang in the halls of the White House for posterity. Republican presidents have done it for Democratic presidents, and vice versa — even when one of them ascended to the White House by defeating or sharply criticizing the other. “We may have our differences politically,”...

    Hollywood actress Lori Petty — who has starred in Orange Is the New Black, Point Break, and the critically acclaimed Tank Girl — has insulted Americans across the board by claiming that they have low IQ’s. “I believe what we have forgotten is that the average IQ in Amurrrikkka is 99,” Petty tweeted on Friday. She said that a third of Americans, including President Donald Trump, have IQ’s lower than that. “A third, plus the murder-in-charge, I guess, lower than that. So, in the house I happily stay, besides kissing y’all.” It remains unclear what spurred Lori Petty’s acrimonious tweet,...

    “How would you describe the job President Trump is doing behind the scenes and in front of the cameras during these daily briefings that we’re seeing?” a Christian Broadcasting Network reporter asked. “What’s been your perspective, Dr. Birx?” “He’s been so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data,” Birx replied. “And I think his ability to analyze and integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues,” she added. “That was translated from the original North Korean,” Williams announced with authority as...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., proved how divided the state of the union is by the "petty childish behavior" she exhibited after President Trump's address Tuesday night, former House speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Gingrich said he understands where the president is coming from when he snubs Pelosi. "Speaker Pelosi has attacked him for four solid months. She has called him the most vile names possible," he said. "You know, I introduced Bill Clinton four times when I was speaker of the House," Gingrich remarked, referring...

    House Democrats are reportedly considering retaliatory moves against two top American and Israeli diplomats in response to Israel’s decision to block Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib from entering the country. Senior Democratic members of Congress are considering legislative action against Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to Washington, and David Friedman, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, according to McClatchy. According to the report, the Democrats are discussing a possible vote on a statement of no confidence in Dermer, as well as the opening up of an inspector general investigation into Friedman. Meanwhile, Tlaib’s 90-year-old grandmother, Muftia Tlaib, who...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) announced Wednesday that he is canceling votes on nearly two dozen of President Trump’s judicial nominees that were expected to come up in the Judiciary Committee this week. The cancellation of the committee’s Thursday business meeting comes as Senate Republicans are in a standoff with outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has vowed to oppose all court picks until he gets a vote on legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller. The notification from the Judiciary Committee didn’t specify when, or if, the committee votes on the nominations would be rescheduled. Six circuit court nominees had been...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer dismissed President Trump’s sitdown with North Korea's Kim Jong Un as nothing more than “a reality show summit.” Schumer, speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday, said Trump has already given up American leverage on North Korea. Schumer said if Pyongyang doesn't give up its nuclear weapons, the "meeting alone will be a victory for North Korea and a defeat for the U.S." Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) said he was similarly surprised on Tuesday, telling reporters he is “very troubled” by the stalling of military exercises in the region. “I was surprised, frankly, because the President had said...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was set to officially retire on March 18, but according to a source familiar with the matter, he could be fired just days before and lose his pension after a more than two-decade career at the bureau. The embattled official abruptly stepped down at the end of January and has been on leave since that time. CNN has learned the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility has recommended McCabe be fired and now the decision is up to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    NEW YORK - Tom Petty's family says his death last year was due to an accidental drug overdose. His wife and daughter released the results of Petty's autopsy via a statement on his Facebook page Friday night.

The statement was posted moments before the Los Angeles coroner's office issued its official findings, which confirmed that Petty had a variety of medications, including fentanyl and oxycodone in his system. They say Petty suffered...

    Tom Petty's Autopsy: Singer Died From Massive Accidental Drug Overdose Tom Petty's autopsy results are in, and they show the singer died from an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications. The L.A. County Coroner says a number of Tom's organs failed due to "mixed drug toxicity." Tom's autopsy report shows the singer was on several pain meds, including Fentanyl patches, oxycodone (Oxycontin), temazepam (Restoril), alprazolam (Xanax), citalopram (Celexa), acetyl fentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl. The reason doctors prescribed the meds was because of a number of medical problems, including emphysema, knee problems and a fractured...

    As the comedian Marc Maron pointed out in his new standup special, Too Real, Tom Petty was the rare artist who both liberal bohemians and cultural conservatives could agree upon. “Everybody loves Tom Petty and burritos,” said Maron, though he added that even Petty might not be able to help him communicate with Trump supporters. “I don’t think Petty is enough to bridge this gap. I just don’t think that he has this power at this juncture.” Petty, the beloved American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, has passed away at 66 years of age. He was hospitalized following a heart attack...

    Alyssa Milano excluded Sen. Ted Cruz from a virtual “group hug.” On Tuesday, the politically active actress tweeted, “Group hug. Get in” to her more than 3 million followers after Jon Ossoff lost the special Congressional election in Georgia to his Republican challenger Karen Handel. Then on Thursday, as senate Republicans introduced their new healthcare bill, with which Cruz has taken some issue, he retweeted Milano with the message, “We all need a hug,” along with a winking emoji. But the “Charmed” star wasn’t having it. Milano replied to the Texas senator, “Not you, @tedcruz. You’re not invited,” also with...

    The New York Times is in trouble, and they know it. The paper has lost all credibility, and even long-time readers comfortable with its editorial bias have been sickened by the all-out trashing of Donald Trump over the past several months. ADVERTISEMENT When the publisher of the world’s most arrogant and all-knowing newspaper puts out a mea culpa promising to “rededicate ourselves to the fundamental mission of Times journalism” you can be pretty sure that something is awry. To pledge to “report America and the world honestly, without fear or favor” suggests they have been doing otherwise, and that is...

    Fashion designer Sophie Theallet is urging her colleagues in couture to follow her example by refusing to “dress” the future first lady Melania Trump. “As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady,” Theallet wrote, reports Elle. “The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by. I encourage my fellow designers to do the same.”
