After being the first Democratic representative to call on Rep. John Conyers to leave Congress over sexual harassment settlements, Rep. Kathleen Rice appeared on CNN to again take on her colleague. CNN’s Chris Cuomo kicked off the interview asking why she wants Conyers to resign, despite his denials of the allegations. “Because enough is enough,” Rice replied. “What I am voicing, publicly, is what ever single private citizen is saying across America.” “Why are the rules for politicians in Washington different then they are for everyone else?” Rice asked, noting that other accused sexual deviants — like Harvey Weinstein and Louis C.

The Minnesota Vikings are, as of writing, pummeling the Detroit Lions into submission. But even if the Lions manage to come back, they’re unlikely to best their opponent’s Thanksgiving-themed touchdown celebration. After the Vikings’ Case Keenum ran the ball 9 yards for a second touchdown — putting the Vikings up 13-0 — the team joined him in the end zone for a hearty Thanksgiving dinner, and it was delightful to watch (like most of the Vikings’ touchdown celebrations.) Watch the touchdown below:

President Donald Trump addressed the Coast Guard on Thursday, and said the armed forces “brand” has gone up since the hurricanes that devastated Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. Trump was making an appearance, alongside first lady Melania, before service members at the Coast Guard’s Lake Work Inlet Station in Florida to hand out sandwiches. “It is an honor to be here,” Trump started. “I have to tell you, you know. The Coast Guard always respected, but if you’re looking at it as a brand, there’s no brand that went up more than the Coast Guard with what happened in Texas, and I would say in particular, Texas has been incredible. You saved 16,000 lives. Nobody knows that. 16,000 lives. In fact when I first heard the number, I said, you mean like 600? 500? 16,000 lives in Texas.” “As bad as that hurricane was, and that was a Continue reading "WATCH: Trump Says After Hurricanes, ‘There’s No Brand That Went Up More Than The Coast Guard’"
Retired Lieutenant General Mark Hertling appeared on CNN Thursday to discuss President Donald Trump’s Thanksgiving call to U.S. service members — and called the president’s remarks “somewhat insulting” and “off-kilter.” Hertling, a CNN military analyst, first noted that he was “thankful for the fact that [Trump] did address the soldiers,” but that “the message that I heard and some of the things he said would have not rung very well with me had I been a deployed soldier.” In the call, made from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, the president dinged the previous administration for its efforts combatting ISIS, claiming that the U.S. is now “winning” against the terror group “because I’m letting you do your job.” “We have been winning,” Hertling contented on CNN. “You’re talking to soldiers and military personnel around the world who have been in this fight for 17 years and to suddenly Continue reading "Retired Lt.

On Wednesday, Washington Post writer Greg Sargent tweeted out a link to his article on the feud between LaVar Ball and President Donald Trump, with the caption: “Trump regularly attacks high-profile African Americans to feed his supporters’ belief that the system is rigged for minorities”:
And early Thanksgiving morning, Trump replied to the tweet, writing “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

As of writing, Trump’s tweet has yet to be deleted. Sargent’s article, which is linked to in his tweet, is fiercely critical of Trump, and accuses him of targeting African American athletes “not just to ‘stoke the culture

A Morning Joe panel on Wednesday warned President Donald Trump against supporting Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused by a number of women of sexual misconduct when they were underaged. MSNBC’s Willie Geist first reacted to Trump’s quasi-endorsement of Moore, in which the president said Moore “totally denies” the allegations. “You have the president of the United States now saying clearly and out loud he takes the side of Roy Moore,” Geist said. “He takes the word of Roy Moore versus the word of the nine accusers.” Geist then tried to appeal to Trump with a different argument:
“So if your moral code doesn’t dictate that you come out strongly against someone who’s been accused of these things, maybe a political, strategic argument would prevail on the president. Which is that: you win this seat, this Senate seat for Roy Moore, it’s a Pyrrhic Continue reading "Morning Joe: If Trump Gets Roy Moore Elected, GOP Becomes ‘Party of Pedophiles’"
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway engaged in a head-spinning flip flop during an appearance on Fox & Friends this week, when she declined to condemn Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore over allegations he sexually assaulted and harassed a number of underaged women. Less than a week after declaring “no Senate seat is worth more than a child” in response to the allegations, Conway was asked about an update on the White House position on Moore on Fox & Friends (watch above.) Her response? Blast his Democratic opponent Doug Jones as “weak on crime” and tacitly endorse Moore by claiming that “we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through.” And according to a new Politico report, President Donald Trump himself “gave personal approval” to Conway to hit Jones on the Fox News morning show. That comes after “days of behind-the-scenes talks in which Continue reading "Trump Reportedly ‘Gave Personal Approval’ to Kellyanne Conway to Blast Doug Jones on Fox & Friends"
