resident Obama began his final press conference on a surprising note. Despite “not liking all of the stories you’ve filed,” he told the gathered White House press corps, it’s you’re duty to ask “tough questions” and not be “sycophants.”
Too bad reporters were apparently not paying attention.
What followed was one softball after another, with rhetorical foot massages sandwiched between.
“Thank you, Mr. President” each reporter began.
“It’s been an honor,” said another, before literally making the “call me” expression while pointing at her cellphone.Read More
A protester set himself on fire outside Trump International Hotel in Washington DC on Tuesday.
The 45-year-old man, who has not yet been identified, said the act was in protest of the President-elect’s looming inauguration.
Witnesses described how he yelled ‘Trump’ several times as ‘flames ran up his back’ before lying down in the street.
He suffered non-life-threatening burns and was taken to hospital shortly after the incident at around 9.30pm.Read More
Donald Trump may have won in the presidency in part because of a backlash against the perception of tyrannical political correctness from the left, but progressives are not the only political group seeking to legislate the terms of civilized debate.
Case in point, a new bill introduced by two Arizona Republican state legislators—Rep. Bob Thorpe and Rep. Mark Finchem—which would ban courses or events promoting “social justice” or anything focused on the interests of any political or identity group.Read More
No matter how troubled Manning is (and he’s certainly troubled), he breached faith with his brothers in arms. Armies depend on bonds of trust, and he knowingly and intentionally placed lives in danger by indiscriminately placing our nation’s secrets in the public domain. He risked American lives. He risked allied lives.Read More
Two polls released Tuesday — one from ABC and a second from CNN — tout Donald Trump as being the most unfavorable incoming president in modern history — yet on second look, the data is clearly boosted by the pollers’ decision to oversample Democrats.Read More
When one becomes a liberal, he or she pretends to advocate tolerance, equality and peace, but hilariously, they’re doing so for purely selfish reasons. It’s the human equivalent of a puppy dog’s face: an evolutionary tool designed to enhance survival, reproductive value and status. In short, liberalism is based on one central desire: to look cool in front of others in order to get love.Read More
Hillary Clinton doesn’t have to look far for a reminder that she is not the next president of the nation, as the headlines give her a daily dose of that. Once they subside, Hillary might just get a permanent reminder, one that is all done up in brick and mortar. An “almost presidential museum” dedicated to Hillary Clinton is proposed, and although some might say it sounds like the creation of a late night host’s comedy act, it’s not. There is actually a politician advocating for this museum to be built and dedicated to the first woman who was almost president.Read More
As Republicans craft the first major tax-code rewrite in more than 30 years, they’ll have to be wary of the voters who put their man in the White House.
While Trump voters generally believe tax cuts help the economy, a majority of them don’t support cuts for anyone but the middle class, according to a poll of voters’ priorities for Trump’s first 100 days conducted by POLITICO and Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Among the general public as a whole, slightly more than half favor tax cuts for low-income Americans, with middle-income cuts coming in a close second.Read More
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith delivers commentary on the black community attacking black leaders for meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Smith said calling people like Steve Harvey, who met with Trump last week, and Jim Brown and Ray Lewis, who met with Trump after he was elected, “sellouts” is not helpful.
Smith said it is not helpful to criticize black leaders for meeting with the one man who can make a difference when it comes to the abyss that is the inner-city. He called on other prominent black leaders to meet with Trump instead of bashing those who do.Read More
