    Hillary Clinton, the former first lady, senator, secretary of state, and nominee for president, in an interview with The New York Times published Friday addressed the rampant and baseless conspiracy theories about her and her family, including those spread by Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. "For me, it does go back to my earliest days in national politics, when it became clear to me that there was a bit of a market in trafficking in the most outlandish accusations and wild stories concerning me, my family, people that we knew, people close to us," Clinton said in an interview...

    Reddit user bragged about his decision to punish his father over his support for Trump by cremating his body against his wishes and then dumping his ashes in the garbage. Yes, really. “My Trump supporting father died on 10/18/2020,” states the post. “I was the estate executor, so I had him cremated against his wishes. I donated my 1/3 of the estate to Planned Parenthood. His ashes are sitting in the garage, and waiting for a proper garbage day.” Some respondents on Twitter felt the same, although many others openly expressed support for the behavior because the Dad may have...

    The World No. 3 golfer was heard over a Golf Channel broadcast of a PGA Tour tournament in Hawaii muttering a homophobic slur after missing a putt in the third round. “It’s terrible. I’m extremely embarrassed. It’s not who I am,” he continued. “It’s not the kind of person that I am. But it’s … unfortunately I did it and I have to own up to it and I’m very apologetic. “Like I said, it’s in excusable. I’m speechless. … it’s bad. There’s no other way to put it. I need to do better. I need to be better. It’s...

    Caspian Richard had only a moment to react when he was faced with a worst-case scenario during his first class back in school. The 13-year-old student who transitioned earlier this year was taking part in virtual schooling at Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) when he heard a familiar name. But it wasn't Caspian. It was his legal name. His "dead name." His heart raced and butterflies filled his stomach. "It was a nervous feeling," Caspian said in a phone interview on Wednesday. "I was really worried about it." It's unclear if the other student meant to use the wrong name....

    Former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) has filmed an ad for former Vice President Joe Biden, using the spot to urge Republicans to put "country over party" and support the Democratic presidential nominee. “I’ve been a conservative Republican my entire life,” Flake says at the start of the ad released Wednesday, noting the first time he cast a presidential ballot was for Ronald Reagan in 1984. “I’ve never before voted for a Democrat for president.” “But this year, principle and conscience require me to do just that,” the former elected official continues. “I’m voting for Joe Biden.”

Well she gets mad at me and follows us and keeps honking the the horn, we go past where my apartment is, so she does not know where my apartment is, and we stop, and all of the sudden this black guy shows...

    "Disgusting." She wrote on my Facebook timeline. "I should have known you were not a safe space. Stay the 'eff' out of my life." I was the same kind, funny person the day I expressed my support of President Trump on Facebook as I was the day before. But you'd never know it from the bizarre reaction of the Liberal Snowflake who'd been my Facebook friend...up until that fateful day. With f-words flying, she mumbled from behind her mask, "I should have known you were not a shafe shpace" and flounced out of my gentle cyber world into the real...

    World-famous podcast host Joe Rogan moved his massively popular and free talk show exclusively to the Spotify platform, and some of its staff members have been triggered ever since. “In a Spotify all-hands company meeting on Wednesday, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek defended keeping transphobic content from hugely popular podcaster Joe Rogan on the audio platform,” Vice Motherboard summarized September 16. "In the case of Joe Rogan, a total of 10 meetings have been held with various groups and individuals to hear their respective concerns," Ek said, according to three sources quoted by Vice Motherboard. "And some of them want Rogan...

    Thirteen cities and towns found themselves in the state’s COVID-19 red zone this week — the highest number to be labeled high-risk since the Baker administration rolled out its color-coded assessment system last month. The state remains particularly focused on turning back the pandemic’s tide in six cities: Chelsea, Everett, Lawrence, Lynn, Revere and Framingham, a group of smaller, poorer cities where 10 people sometimes cram into a single apartment, where reliance on public transportation is high and where workers don’t have the luxury of staying home — all conditions ripe for transmitting the highly contagious virus. “The odds are...

    A piece published by Time raised eyebrows after calling for a cultural reckoning of how superheroes are depicted amid the national dialogue that has cracked down on how TV shows and films portray police and law enforcement. Time writer Eliana Dockterman began the piece -- titled "We're Re-examining How We Portray Cops Onscreen. Now It's Time to Talk About Superheroes" -- by noting the recent cancellations of "Cops" and "Live PD" following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and how even "Paw Patrol" has become a target. "But as we engage in this long overdue conversation about law enforcement,...

We know that some of these will be shocking and hard for you to accept. You may be angry... Just know, even if you disagree, you are still wrong. Today, we're going to (mostly) overlook the big things and, instead, focus on the more mundane mistakes that plague every generation after (baby boomers) CURSIVE Cursive doesn't actually help. While it may look pretty, it's honestly an outdated waste of time. Surely there's got...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) says he will not be casting his vote for President Donald Trump in 2020, citing concerns he had with the president before the 2016 campaign. “I just couldn’t support [Trump] long before he started to run. The birtherism thing was just too much for me. And then it piled on,” Flake, a vocal critic of Trump, told the Washington Post. Flake also warned that a second Trump term could deter younger voters from the GOP, especially on issues concerning the environment and immigration. “So for young people who’ve grown up around minorities or had a...

    One day there will be a dark unending abyss. One without beginning or end, without time or space. A mere black void, of intention and as I gaze upon it, peering into its endless depth I will realize it will have nothing more perverse than what I’ve seen during the great clown age. Make no mistake the headline is not an attempt to compete with the Babylon Bee for the most outrageous satirical piece. The book in question is very much real. Marvel’s recent attempt to cash in on the step-sibling trend on Pornhub has hilarious and massively backfired in...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — The University of Oklahoma released a statement Monday after a history teacher read during class from a historical document that used a racial slur. Interim OU President Joseph Harroz said the faculty member read from a historical document that “repeatedly” used the N-word. He said the professor issued a “trigger warning” before reading but agreed that the word never should have been used.
