The Mayor-elect is already discussing expectations for his first 100 days in office.

Earlier this week on the Senate floor, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, introduced legislation that would raise the minimum purchase age for tobacco from 18 to 21. It’s a bipartisan effort being spearheaded by McConnell and Senator Tim Kaine, a Democrat from Virginia and Hillary Clinton’s former running mate. McConnell first announced his intention […]

Early on Monday, April 22, presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren announced an ambitious higher education plan that would include free public college, a massive student loan debt forgiveness program, funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and eliminate federal funding for allfor-profit colleges. Any single one of these components would effect change in the American higher education system, but taken […]

Candace Owens testified during Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on white nationalism and hate crimes. And, to absolutely no one’s surprise, things got pretty heated. For those of you who don’t know, Owens is a black conservative who also serves as the director of communications for the right-wing group Turning Point USA. During a speaking event for the […]

President Trump has gone to great lengths to fulfill his campaign promise of building a wall between Mexico and the Southern United States. This has included subjecting the country to the longest government shutdown in history, which he has threatened to resume. Now, since most political officials will not approve the wall’s construction, Trump claims he will build a “human […]

Hillary Clinton might give a presidential run a third go next year. The former first lady is reportedly open to launching another campaign. “Clinton is telling people that she’s not closing the doors to the idea of running in 2020,” CNN‘s Jeff Zeleny reported on Sunday (Jan. 27). “I’m told by three people that as recently as this […]

Whenever he’s not too busy misspelling words or trying to find his third chief of staff, President Donald Trump is almost always talking about, or appearing on, cable news television. Such was the case on Tuesday, when he and Vice President Mike Pence sat down with incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and Senate Minority Leader […]

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has not attended the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. The possible reasons for reality television star turned politician vary, but the two most prominent concern his distaste for the press and for the many comedians who regularly roast him. Trump’s public feud with CNN’s Jim Acosta illustrates the former perfectly. As for […]

Like it or not, the feud between Wale and conservative talking head Tomi Lahren has lasted longer than many of the beefs of 2018. Since January of last year, the two have gone back and forth on social media after Wale released a song dissing the commentator (who may or may not remind you of a particular condiment). The two last sparred […]

After this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson faced backlash for his unfunny comments about Texas GOP candidate Dan Crenshaw. Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, wears an eye patch, and at one point during “Weekend Update” Davidson makes a joke about the veteran’s appearance. “You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate in Texas and not […]

Turns out Melania Trump is just as prone to grandiose qualifiers as her husband. In an exclusive interview with ABC, the first lady called herself “the most bullied person in the world.” The MOST. “One of them,” she later clarified. “If you really see what people are saying about me.” I’m not saying people don’t take their fair […]

When it comes to defending Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani is full of hot takes on everything from paying taxes to sex work. But his latest is really a doozy: Truth isn’t truth. Rudy decided to drop this gem during an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press. When asked about why it’s taking so long for Trump’s legal team and Robert Mueller’s investigative team […]
