President Donald Trump is telling Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon to ´be a man´ and stop ´whimpering´ about the personal anguish he felt over the backlash he received after messing up Trump´s hair during a 2016 campaign appearance on Fallon´s late-night talk show. Fallon recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he ´made a mistake´ on the September 2016, episode and would do it differently. The comments didn´t appear to sit well with Trump. The president tweeted Sunday: ´.@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous ´hair show´ with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), &

Treviño said police officers were called to the Southwest Key Casa Padre location after reports of a missing 15-year-old boy who ran away from the facility, the largest migrant children´s center in the United States. Jeff Eller, spokesman for the nonprofit Southwest Key Programs, which runs the facility, confirmed that a teenage boy left the center on Saturday and that facility officials called local law enforcement. An official with US Health & Human Services confirmed a boy ran

An All Blacks footy star has shared his controversial opinion on the 9/11 terrorist attacks, comparing them to the Grenfell Tower disaster. Lima Sopoaga took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York which killed thousands of people on September 11, 2001. ´Makes you think that if Grenfell burned for a few days and never collapsed. How did the twin towers collapse because of a fire?´ the player asked of his 25,000 followers on Sunday night. He also criticised the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle saying ´they had money for a

Far from ground zero in the Trump administration´s crackdown on illegal immigration along the southern border, US Customs and Border Protection checkpoints on highways in Maine and New Hampshire are catching the eye of civil liberties groups. On Interstate 95 near the remote northern Maine town of Lincoln this week, the Border Patrol said it made nine drug seizures and two arrests for immigration violations during an 11-hour checkpoint operation in which agents asked motorists about their place of birth and citizenship status. (Snip) The June 15-17 operation resulted in the arrests of five undocumented immigrants from Brazil, China, Ecuador, El

Sen. Chuck Schumer used the occasion of Sunday’s NYC Pride March to announce that his daughter, Alison, will be marrying her fiancée, Elizabeth Weiland. The women plan to walk down the aisle on Nov. 18. “Marching in the #NYCPride Parade has special meaning this year as I am marching with my daughter Alison and her wonderful fiancée Biz! #HappyPride,” tweeted the politician, who wore a lavender shirt to the pride parade. Alison, 29, is an executive at Facebook, while Weiland’s LinkedIn page says she is in her second year of an MBA program at Columbia University.

Disney teenage actress Jenna Ortega and model Jill Vedder are among the celebrities continuing to lead the charge by wearing their own ´I do care´ jacket creations in protest against First Lady Melania Trump. The 15-year-old, who has starred in ´Jane the Virgin´ and ´Iron Man 3´, donned a jacket reading ´I do care and u should too´ on the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards on Friday night. She said Melania, who caused outrage with the ´I really don´t care, do u?´ jacket she wore to visit detained children, showed poor judgement with her outfit choice. (Photo/Video)

Sarah Sanders´ use of her official government Twitter account to criticize a restaurant for asking her to leave is a ´clear violation´ of federal ethics laws, a top former government watchdog charges. Walter Shaub, who was the director of Office of Government Ethics for five years, wrote on Twitter that the White House press secretary violated federal rules by using her official account for her personal beef with the Red Hen restaurant. ´Sarah, I know you don´t care even a tiny little bit about the ethics rules, but using your official account for this is a clear violation of 5

The Catholic Church in America appears to be a schizophrenic entity, possessed of a deep-seated death wish — exactly like all the other mainstream churches and most institutions in our western culture. This week, the Church is celebrating Freedom of Religion week. You’ll see the little flags if you walk past one of the churches. I have absolutely clue zero — and in fact am a little afraid to consider — of what other parishes and sermons might make of this, but our priest segued incoherently from telling us that like St. John the Baptist confronted Herod we are supposed to

The pearl bracelet arrived in May 2014, in the spring of Ali Watkins’s senior year in college, a graduation gift from a man many years her senior. It was the sort of bauble that might imply something more deeply felt than friendship — but then again, might not. Ms. Watkins, then a 22-year-old intern in the Washington bureau of McClatchy Newspapers, was not entirely surprised. She had met James Wolfe, a 50-something senior aide to the Senate Intelligence Committee, while hunting for scoops on Capitol Hill. He had become a helpful source, but there were times when he seemed interested in other pursuits — like when he

California Democrats Furious at Plans

California Democrats are reacting angrily to plans by the Trump administration to house tens of thousands of illegal aliens detained at the southern border at military bases in the Golden State. Plans that leaked late last week call for 47,000 illegal aliens to be housed at a closed U.S. Navy base in Concord in the San Francisco Bay Area, and for about 25,000 to be housed at the U.S. Marine Corps base at Camp Pendleton in Southern California. The apparent intention is to keep illegal aliens detained rather than allowing them to disappear into the general U.S. population, as was

For the second year in a row, Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has reportedly raked in more than a million dollars, putting him solidly in the 1% of American income earners. Though he´s still well behind his colleague-in-arms, Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) whose estimated personal wealth is $18.5 million, a financial disclosure form filed just last month shows the Vermont Senator and former progressive presidential candidate did very well in 2016 and 2017, raking in more than a million each year from book deals, cash payments, and royalty fees, according to VT Digger. Much of that money, the Vermont-centric investigative reporters say, came

Former Obama administration DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson “freely admitted” to Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday morning that his department “expanded family detention” as well as detained some children alone, but added that he believed the decision “was necessary at the time.” After showing pictures of detained children from 2014, Wallace noted that “in some cases you separated children from their parents” before asking, “Did you handle it so well?” (RELATED: Tucker Carlson: America’s Elites Want ‘Immigration Without Limit’) “Without a doubt the images, and the reality, from 2014, just like 2018, are not pretty,” Johnson said. “And so

Leading Democrats over the weekend rubbed shoulders in one of the country’s most liberal enclaves, according to reports. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and philanthropist Connie Milstein threw a ritzy bash at her Edgartown abode on Saturday. The event was attended by Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) and Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Heather Podesta and former U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia Tod Sedgwick. The night before, the Virginia lawmaker hosted over 100 Democrats at his upscale home on Martha’s Vineyard, as part of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s annual retreat.

The immigration bill could stall on Capitol Hill for all sorts of reasons, some of them predictable, some not. At the moment Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has a specific source of concern over the status of the legislation as debate continues and the wheels of Congress only twitch in response. The Texas Republican says national security is at stake. But he assured “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that he remains an “eternal optimist” about the potential passage of the immigration bill, which he said is merit-based and not an “amnesty.” Mr. Wallace then

Why the Resistance is futile

The New York Times seemed puzzled by the Republican reaction to the Resistance. Instead of serving as a wedge between President Trump and the party, the Resistance serves as an adhesive. Liberals also may be surprised to learn the Resistance is a turn off for their supporters as well. In its story on the Resistance bonding Republicans with President Trump, the Times used a stereotype to show its befuddlement. "Gina Anders knows the feeling well by now. President Trump says or does something that triggers a spasm of outrage. She doesn’t necessarily agree with how he handled the situation. She

This CBS News Battleground Tracker poll is interesting, for a number of reasons. It was large, sampling over 2,000 Americans (not registered voters), it was taken at the height of the “separated children” hysteria (June 21-22), and cross tabs are supplied. Given the timing of the survey, the results are mostly reassuring for Republicans. The Democrats’ generic ballot advantage is only four points–and again, respondents aren’t even registered voters, let alone likely voters. And despite the press’s coordinated effort to whip up hysteria over the separated children issue, check out this finding: Do you approve or disapprove of how Donald

You knew it was coming. Eighteen months into the Trump administration and the president’s ostensibly serious critics have finally broken the glass on the “Trump-is-a-Nazi” line of attack. To be certain, there were previous allusions to this from media, Democrats and “Never Trumpers” — accusations of authoritarianism meant to implicitly draw the connection between President Donald Trump and Nazi Germany. Apart from the “over-woke,” under-informed Hollywood set, however, critics largely managed to avoid making the explicit comparison.

Italy is seeking to have seven boats carrying roughly 1,000 migrants needing rescue off Libya taken back to North Africa, according to a Spanish aid group. Proactiva Open Arms, which has rescued thousands of migrants in the Mediterranean, said the Italians want the Libyan coast guard to conduct the rescues and return the migrants. Proactiva said in a tweet that Italian coast guard authorities who coordinate rescues sent out advisories to all ships in the area but told the aid group: ´We don´t need your help.´ In a tweet on Sunday, hard-line interior minister Matteo Salvini said: ´It´s right that the Libyan

DENVER — Jared Polis, a leading Democratic candidate for Colorado governor, walked into the home of a prominent marijuana entrepreneur for a campaign event recently, wearing a suit and bright blue sneakers. He circled a room of voters, wound his way past the margarita machine and then fired off his vision for Colorado. Single-payer health care. An all-renewable electric grid. State-funded full-day preschool. The crowd showered him with applause. “Support the man,” said a host, Scott Durrah, 53, “because we really need him.” Colorado, one of the purplest states in the nation, has seen dramatic social and economic change in

In the latest CBS News Battleground Tracker poll, Arizona voters weighed in on their state´s U.S. senators, and each got more negative than positive views. Partisanship shapes opinion, but not in the way we typically see in politics today. GOP Sen. John McCain gets his highest favorable rating from Arizona Democrats of all partisan groups -- 62 percent view him favorably. It´s voters in his own party who give McCain his most negative ratings -- nearly 7 in 10 view him unfavorably. (Chart) President Trump has been critical of McCain, particularly on the senator´s vote against the Republican health care

Chicago - A division of the American Library Association has voted to remove the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award, over concerns about how the author portrayed African Americans and Native Americans. The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) made the unanimous decision to change the name on Saturday, at a meeting in New Orleans. The name of the prize was changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award. The association said Wilder “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values”. The first award

They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.

No one in their offices contacted me,” said Leandra Feliz, 48 — as she left home Sunday to make funeral arrangements for her 15-year-old son, Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.

Saturday on MSNBC, Rep.

Waters was referencing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia this weekend. Waters said, “I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it’s wrong for what they’re doing on so many fronts. They tend to not want to confront this president or even leave, but they know what they’re doing

I confess to being more weary than dizzy from the Dr. Gowdy–and–Mr. Trey routine. Just three weeks ago, Representative Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, assured us that everything was peachy with the FBI — no way, no how did the bureau “spy” on the Trump campaign when it deployed an “informant” to pry information from Trump-campaign officials. As Mollie Hemingway pointed out at the time, Gowdy had not seen relevant documents the FBI and Justice Department have been withholding from Congress — in fact, his spokeswoman said he did not even know what documents
