Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He’s Getting Credit For It

Growth: A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It’s another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for the good news. Should Democrats wave bye to the Blue Wave?

Median household income has been steadily increasing under Trump, rising from $59,471 in January 2017 to $61,483 last month, according to Sentier Research, which tracks income on a monthly basis using census data.

How Every NFL Team’s Fans Lean Politically

The showdown between President Trump and the NFL over some players’ decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial injustice has raised all kinds of important issues. It’s also put the most popular major sports league in the United States in a difficult position. The NFL’s fan base is much more bipartisan than those of other major sports leagues, and it risks angering one side or the other if it mishandles the situation.

CNN’s School Shootings Math Doesn’t Add Up: BB Gun Bruises Don’t Count

Following the horrific and most recent school shooting in Texas on Friday, there has been debate about exactly how frequent these events are, and how at-risk American students might be.

For one example, there has been some debate about whether children in the United States face a greater risk of being shot and killed than American troops in Afghanistan. (They don’t.)

Broward County School District Isn’t Just Incompetent, They’re Heartless

It’s a trifecta of horribleness with the Broward County School District — incompetence, dishonesty, and now heartlessness.

In the aftermath of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the BCSD was the target of criticism after it was reported that their discipline policy did not require arrests for even acts of violence or threats to school safety, all the more so after it was revealed that the confessed shooter had been referred to the controversial alternative school PROMISE program, contrary to Broward Superintendent Robert Runcie’s insistence that he had not.

The feds are investigating sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein

WASHINGTON (AP) — Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer said in a court filing that federal prosecutors in New York have launched a criminal investigation into the film producer, in addition to a previously disclosed probe by the Manhattan District Attorney.

Senator: There’s a ‘Very Real’ Possibility Justice Kennedy is About to Retire, and I’m Told He Wants to Be Replaced By a Republican

We’ve been writing about the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy for some time now, having been informed by a very well-placed source last spring that Justice Anthony Kennedy was on the brink of retirement. Here we are more than a year later, and those rumors have only gained steam — with the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee going so far as to urge Kennedy to get on with it and announce his intentions as soon as possible. Among the members of the Senate who are most plugged into the goings on of the Supreme Court — out of both professional and family pedigree — is Utah’s Mike Lee, who also happens to be on President Trump’s SCOTUS short list. Sen. Lee joined Benson & Harf last evening to discuss an array of topics, but his intriguing and thorough answer to my question about the Court piqued my interest. Skip ahead to the six minute mark for that piece of the exchange:

Bethany Mandel : Lil Tay isn’t the first child star exploited by her parents. But perhaps she can be the last.

Platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram theoretically have policies for how old children have to be before opening an account, but no way to verify the birth dates users input. The result isn’t just kids opening their own accounts without their parents’ permission (though that happens plenty too), but accounts opened for children by their parents in order to monetize their offspring.

Brooke Baldwin interviews 30 year old upstate NY slacker–who won’t leave his parents’ house

The whole country’s having fun shooting spitballs at him, me included, but after watching this interview and reading further about him I’m leery of the possibility that there’s more going on here than just a severe case of slackeritis. He seems a bit disjointed in the clip. Ed noted in his post this morning that his parents demanded that he get “sessions with a therapist.” He recently lost his visitation rights to his child for unknown reasons. Business Insider tried to squeeze him for basic details about his life but that interview was weird too:
