Dan Rather: Trump Has Had The ‘Worst Start’ Of Any U.S. President Ever






“We’re roughly two months into the Trump Presidency, and it is the worst start to a time in office I have ever seen,” Dan Rather wrote in a Facebook post on Monday, noting that many historians have said the same thing.
Rather, who hosted “CBS Evening News” for 25 years, called President Donald Trump’s first two months in office “chaotic” and “outrageous,” pointing to the president’s failure to repeal Obamacare, the FBI investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, and the federal court’s decision to block his first executive order on immigration and travel.
“A weak President running a weak, ragtag administration is a prescription for trouble,” the 85-year-old veteran newsman wrote. “Trouble internationally could come from enemies and other competitors who may see opportunities for advantage and overreach.”

Kellyanne Conway Tries To Distance Donald Trump From Surrogates Tied To Russia






Kellyanne Conway claims President Donald Trump doesn’t know and didn’t work with two of his 2016 presidential campaign advisers who have been linked to Russia. The assertion follows FBI Director James Comey’s confirmation Monday that that the bureau is investigating ties between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin.
Trump’s counselor said Tuesday that Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser for the campaign, and J.D. Gordon, a former national security adviser for the campaign, were little more than “fringe players.”
“In the case of Mr. Page, Mr. Gordon, some others, they really have very attenuated contacts to the campaign that I managed for the last three months,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends.” 
“I have spoken directly to the president and other senior officials about Continue reading "Kellyanne Conway Tries To Distance Donald Trump From Surrogates Tied To Russia"

Stephen Hawking Teaches Piers Morgan A Valuable Lesson In Gender Equality






Stephen Hawking may be an distinguished professor of mathematics, but he just schooled Piers Morgan on gender equality.
During an interview with the legendary British scientist on Monday, Morgan posited that the U.K.’s roster of high-profile women in politics points to “scientific evidence” of gender equality.
But Hawking’s response suggested the controversial TV host was overlooking a more important factor in the fight for women’s empowerment.
“It is not scientific proof of gender equality that is required, but general acceptance that women are at least the equals of men or better,” Hawking told Morgan on “Good Morning Britain.”
“If we factor in high-power women in Europe as well, such as [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel, it seems we are witnessing a seismic shift for women to exceed to high-level Continue reading "Stephen Hawking Teaches Piers Morgan A Valuable Lesson In Gender Equality"

Donald Trump Concedes Health Care Bill Could Hurt Many Of His Supporters






President Donald Trump says he’s aware the current version of the GOP’s health care bill could hurt the very people who helped put him in the White House.
The president acknowledged the findings of a recent Bloomberg report, which said working- and middle-class counties that voted for him in November would fare far worse under the new bill than affluent counties that supported Hillary Clinton.
“Yeah,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Wednesday. “Oh, I know that.”
But he indicated that the bill was likely to go through further changes, calling it “very preliminary.”

John Lewis Blasts Steve King’s ‘Bigoted And Racist’ Comments






Longtime civil rights champion Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) slammed Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) Monday for “bigoted and racist” comments that appeared to support white nationalism.










King landed himself in hot water Sunday when he retweeted an Islamophobic cartoon and praised the illustrator for understanding “that culture and demographics are our destiny.”


“We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” King tweeted, apparently an attack on Muslims and immigrants entering the U. Continue reading "John Lewis Blasts Steve King’s ‘Bigoted And Racist’ Comments"

Steve King Defends His White Nationalism Tweet By Saying He Wants U.S. To Be ‘So Homogenous’

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is standing behind his controversial tweet indicating support of white nationalism, saying on Monday that he’d like the United States to be “so homogenous that we look a lot the same.”


King faced severe backlash Sunday after retweeting an Islamophobic cartoon.






When CNN host Chris Cuomo confronted King about the tweet, the congressman chose to double down on the message.


“This is being condemned by many regions of American politics and citizenry,” Cuomo said about King’s tweet. “What did you mean?”


“Well, of course, I meant exactly what I said,” King replied. “You cannot rebuild your civilization with somebody else’s babies. You’ve got to keep your birth rate up. ... You need to teach your children your values Continue reading "Steve King Defends His White Nationalism Tweet By Saying He Wants U.S. To Be ‘So Homogenous’"
