CNN Panel Responds to Hillary Clinton Trolling Trump With Russian Hat: ‘A Little Bit of Bitterness’

Hillary Clinton brought a prop to her speech in front of graduating seniors at Yale’s Class Day: a Russian hat. Clinton, who graduated from Yale Law School in 1973, pulled out the hat in a nod to the tradition of students wearing outlandish headgear to the end-of-year celebration. “Now I see looking out at you, that you are following the tradition of over the top hats,” Clinton said. “So I brought a hat too…A Russian hat.” Her joke prompted laughter from the class of 2018. However, one CNN reporter thought the move smacked of sour grapes. “It shows that Hillary is still around. Perhaps, still has a little bit of bitterness and sourness over what happened,” CNN Political Reporter Jeremy Herb said after viewing the clip of the Russian hat gag. “Russia, it’s not going anywhere, that’s for sure.” New York Times Politics Editor Patrick Healy agreed. “She could Continue reading "CNN Panel Responds to Hillary Clinton Trolling Trump With Russian Hat: ‘A Little Bit of Bitterness’"

Pols Call for Action After Santa Fe Shooting: ‘Horrifying Inaction of Congress’ Is ‘Green Light’ for Shooters

There have been a number of calls for action on gun violence today following the horrific school shooting in Santa Fe this morning. In remarks earlier this afternoon, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that “we need to do more than just pray” and called for action, bringing up background checks and increasing resources to protect schools.

Hillary Clinton: A ‘Very Large Portion’ of the US Population Feels ‘Uneasy’ About Women Seeking Power

During a sit-down in Australia, Hillary Clinton reflected on what may have been responsible for her defeat in the 2016 election. On Thursday, the twice-defeated presidential candidate sat with Julia Gillard, Australia’s first female prime minister, and spoke about sexism in politics. Clinton had a lot to say. The former Secretary of State mentioned how men who run for office “come in all sizes and shapes” with “all kinds of hairstyles” and they go unmentioned because you’re “used to seeing men in these roles” and women are still “breaking glass ceilings.” She also invoked President Trump‘s attacks of women like Carly Fiorina and Megyn Kelly during the election for their appearances, which she insisted was a way for him to “undermine” women. “There is still a very large proportion of the population that is uneasy with women in positions of leadership,” Clinton said, “and so the easiest Continue reading "Hillary Clinton: A ‘Very Large Portion’ of the US Population Feels ‘Uneasy’ About Women Seeking Power"

Outnumbered Gets Heated in Michael Cohen Debate: It’s as ‘Smelly as the Clinton Foundation

In a surprising turn of events, Outnumbered went in on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen for “pay for play” tactics, but perhaps veered a little bit too close to the “let’s not forget when the Clintons did it” side for comfort. “To me this is as smelly as the Clinton Foundation and I hated that,” Melissa Francis said. “I don’t like pay for play in any corner. We didn’t want Hillary Clinton doing it, we don’t want anyone else doing it.” “The underlying concern here is very disturbing,” Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas agreed, but he stuck to the matter at hand. “This is the first time we have a financial connection between the Trump team and the Kremlin… an oligarch who is under sanction for interfering in the United States election has paid half a million dollars to the personal attorney of Donald Trump within weeks of the election happening.

Hillary Clinton Jokes: I Gave ‘Some Thought’ To Moving Abroad After Trump Won

Hillary Clinton said in a speech on Monday that she considered moving abroad after Donald Trump won the presidency. Speaking in Auckland, New Zealand on the foreign leg of her tour to promote 2016 campaign memoir What Happened, Clinton reflected before a crowd of 3,000 people who she dealt with the defeat. “I’m still proud of the campaign we ran and the 65.8 million Americans who supported it,” she said. “So when people ask me ‘how are you doing?’ I say, well as a person I’m okay. But as an American, I’m concerned.” Clinton then joked that she received invitations to move permanently to New Zealand. “I must say I really did appreciate the offers,” she said. “Gave them some thought.” “But I’m going to stay put because we have work to do in my country as well,” she added. Aside from her comment about Continue reading "Hillary Clinton Jokes: I Gave ‘Some Thought’ To Moving Abroad After Trump Won"

Senate Candidate Replaces Opponent Shaking Trump’s Hand With Hillary Clinton’s in Photoshopped Campaign Ad

West Virginia Senate Republican candidate Evan Jenkins apparently saw a photo of Attorney General Patrick Morrisey — his rival opponent in the GOP primary — shaking hands with President Donald Trump, and had a radical idea: convince voters he was instead cozying up to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Morrisey, a long-time Clinton critic, is seen shaking hands with the 2016 Democratic candidate in a photoshopped image used in one of Jenkins’ recent campaign advertisements. Meanwhile, the attorney general was actually shaking hands with the president in the Oval Office while patting his shoulder in the original image. 

“Morrisey chose not to endorse Trump,” bold text over the photoshopped image reads. The manipulated photo shows Morrisey looking at Clinton as she laughs with her eyes closed and mouth open. 

Dershowitz Slams Trump For ‘Dead Wrong’ Tweet: Comey ‘Did Not Commit Many Crimes’

Ignoring the fact that President Donald Trump tweets patently false things on the daily, Alan Dershowitz on Fox & Friends seized upon one POTUS tweet Monday, calling it “dead wrong.” The offending tweet: After saying that James Comey should have told the president he was wrong to his face about the Hillary Clinton probe, he contended that he would tell the president “you’re dead wrong” about the tweet he just shared. “[Comey] did not commit many crimes,” Dershowitz said. “Let’s not try to criminalize what he did. If you don’t like what Comey did, come on the show, say you don’t like what Comey did, but Continue reading "Dershowitz Slams Trump For ‘Dead Wrong’ Tweet: Comey ‘Did Not Commit Many Crimes’"
