    Alec Baldwin may not be satisfied merely playing the President of the United States on Saturday Night Live; instead, he may actually want the real job for himself. On Monday, Baldwin—who won an Emmy last year for his portrayal of Donald Trump on SNL—told Howard Stern that he could beat the current Commander in Chief if he decided to run for the top office in 2020. Should we add Baldwin’s name to the growing list of celebrities tied to the White House? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Oprah Winfrey could use some company. While discussing the 2020 election, Baldwin said...

    Maxine Waters likes to say millennials love her, but if her own campaign event is any indication, that might be more rhetoric than reality. 79-year-old “Auntie Maxine” held a Meet & Greet Tweet-A-Thon on Sunday for two hours, and while it’s hard to know what she hoped the outcome would be, but the turnout seemed to be underwhelming. “Come join top social media influencers for a tweet-a-thon in support of Auntie Maxine, our fearless champion in Congress who taught us how to reclaim our time!” the flyer read. “Millennials come energized & ready to get out the vote!” her campaign...

    Some 22.3 percent of fatally injured motorists who were tested for drugs tested positive for marijuana in 2016, a figure that researchers say has "increased substantially" in recent years as states have legalized the drug for recreational or medicinal use, according to a new report. The finding, in a study released Thursday by the Governors Highway Safety Association, was one of several regarding the growing prevalence of drugs in vehicle fatalities. The report also found that 44 percent of drivers killed in automobile accidents in 2016 who were tested for drugs tested positive for one or more substances – a...

    Nearly two weeks ahead of their day of nationwide racial bias training, coffee chain Starbucks is facing new accusations of racism after a Latino customer discovered a racial slur written on his coffee order. A Latino man named Peter received a cold coffee drink labeled “BEANER.” “En español es ‘frijoleros’, ‘beaner,’ you know, in English,” said the victim’s friend Miguel Acosta. “He went to Starbucks, and they asked for his name, and his name is ‘Peter,’ and they wrote this ‘beaner,’ Acosta told CBS2 News through a coworker who was translating. “And he’s saying that’s not fair.” Acosta said his...

    Does the prospect of a government-guaranteed job appeal to you? You’ve got company: nearly half of U.S. voters like the idea, according to a recent poll. The proposal has been getting some traction on the left lately, after being floated by think tanks and embraced by likely Democratic presidential candidates including Sens. Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders. In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 46% said they favored such a program. Sanders, according to the Washington Post, backs a version that would see local and state governments offer proposals for public works projects. Workers would be hired for at...
  • Heineken pulls ‘Lighter is Better’ ad after critics (like Chance The Rapper) call it racist

    Heineken, in response to allegations of racism, has pulled its “lighter is better” ad promoting the beer giant’s Heineken Light from TV and internet spots. The ad shows a bartender sliding a beer down the bar past three people who are all black. The beer then stops in front of a lighter-skinned woman after displaying the words “Sometimes, lighter is better” on the screen. The ad has been removed from Heineken’s HEINY, -0.92% official channels but has been re-posted by others. Naturally, the internet went into a fury upon viewing the ad — both in support and against Heineken.

    Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan had some strong words Tuesday for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who accused the Trump administration and ICE agents of carrying out "cowardly attacks" on illegal immigrants. Pelosi issued the statement after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against California, claiming three recently passed state laws are deliberately interfering with federal immigration enforcement. “The people of California will not be bowed by the Trump administration’s brazen aggression and intimidation tactics," the California Democrat said. "Californians will continue to proudly keep our doors open to the immigrants who make America more American. We will fight this...

The clothing will launch on Macy's website on Feb. 15. The brand was developed by Lisa Vogl, a graduate of Macy's minority- and women-owned business development program, which aims to offer more fashion diversity.

    Environmentalists are targeting your hamburgers and buffalo wings with a “Meat Tax.” And they claim they have “never been closer to a meat tax.” As reported by Bloomberg Law: Hamburger addicts, barbecue junkies, and fried chicken fanatics may soon be asked to pay a surcharge for their obsessions with meat. Excise taxes on beef, pork, and chicken could be the next big thing in a state and local tax environment that’s already comfortable with “sin tax” regimes aimed at cigarettes, alcoholic beverages, and gambling and is adapting quickly to special levies on sugar-sweetened beverages, greenhouse gases, and marijuana. While there...
  • Democrats are infuriated by their own party's deal with the GOP to reopen the government

    Many Democrats are incensed about the deal Senate Democrats reached with Republicans on Monday, the third day of a shutdown, to reopen the government. On Monday, a bipartisan group of senators — including 33 Democrats — led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reached an agreement to fund the government until February 8. The senators agreed to the deal in exchange for a promise from the GOP to vote on legislation to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects from deportation about 700,000 undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers and is set to...

    A North Korean ballistic missile crashed into a city near the country’s capital Pyongyang in April, narrowly avoiding a “catastrophic accident” in a populated area, according to a report in The Diplomat. The Hwasong-12 was launched from Pukchang Airfield in a test on April 28, but its engines stopped working after one minute of low-altitude powered flight. The intermediate-range ballistic missile plunged to earth near the city of Tokchon, where it likely caused “considerable damage to a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings,” the current affairs magazine said in its report Wednesday. There was likely a “large explosion upon impact,”...

    A strong rally in cannabis-related stocks this week to mark the start of sales of recreational marijuana in California came to a screeching halt Thursday, on a report that the Justice Department is about to throw a spanner in the works for the nascent weed industry. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a longtime marijuana opponent, is expected to rescind an Obama-era policy that gave protections to states that have legalized marijuana as long as they abide by a series of guidelines, the Associated Press reported, citing unnamed sources. An announcement that will scrap what is known as the Cole Memo...

    Corruption: Shortly after the Uranium One story broke, various news reports claimed that it was much ado about nothing. But a review of a huge cache of newly available documents shows that, if anything, it was worse than previously thought. The Hill broke the bombshell story last month, which summed up goes like this: While the Obama administration was approving the controversial 2010 sale of Uranium One to a state-owned Russian energy giant — which gave it control of one-fifth of U.S. uranium supplies — the FBI was actively investigating that company for extensive criminal activity designed to expand Russia's...

    Fox News Channel host Jeanine Pirro (juh-NEEN' PEER'-oh) has been issued a speeding ticket for driving 119 mph (192 kph) in a 65 mph (105 kph) zone in upstate New York. The Daily News reports the former Westchester County district attorney was stopped by a trooper on Sunday afternoon in Tioga County. A state police spokesman says he doesn't know what type of car Pirro was driving or whether she had any passengers. Pirro says in a statement through Fox News Channel she had been driving for hours to visit her ailing mother and didn't realize how fast she was...

    Proponents of the self-driving car revolution might have preferred that what happened in Vegas on Wednesday stayed in Vegas. But as a reluctant public mulls a future of robotic vehicles, any hiccup along the way is sure to make headlines. The latest fodder for critics came from Sin City, where a driverless shuttle, apparently through no fault of its own, got into a fender bender with a semi-truck just hours after its debut, according to local news reports. “The shuttle did what it was supposed to do, in that it’s sensors registered the truck and the shuttle stopped to avoid...

    President Donald Trump met with Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Monday, sharing a brief handshake eight years after his predecessor became a global laughingstock by bowing deeply before the monarch. Visiting with the emperor and empress is routine for heads of state visiting Tokyo, and Trump did his part a few hours before a joint press conference with Prime Minster Shinzo Abe, who wields more power than the aging figurehead. Trump nodded his head slightly, but did not bend at the waist. An administration official traveling with Trump on his Far East tour told that bowing is...

    U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters continues to escalate her attacks against President Trump, urging followers to “fight back” and “impeach 45,” most recently at a Democratic cook off in South Carolina. Waters appeared before South Carolina’s Orangeburg County Democrats for the group’s 19th annual cook off, where Waters’ “hyper-aggressive” attacks on Trump whipped the crowd of roughly 1,000 into a tizzy, the Post and Courier reports. Waters waded into the controversy surrounding a Gold Star widow who claimed Trump disrespected the family during a condolence call last week, which Trump has denied, and alleged Gen. John Kelly dishonored himself by defending...
  • A racist Corn Pops box? Kellogg’s says it’s sorry (another liberal guilt trip)

    Kellogg’s has apologized for a cereal-box cartoon that featured a bunch of light-colored Corn Pops hanging out in a mall — while a darker-skinned Pop scrubs the floor. Pictures showing the packaging surfaced on social media and prompted the company to respond. “Hey @KelloggsUS why is literally the only brown corn pop on the whole cereal box the janitor?” asked Marvel Comics writer Saladin Ahmed. “[T]his is teaching kids racism.” “Yes [it’s] a tiny thing, but when you see your kid staring at this over breakfast and realize millions of other kids are doing the same ... ” he added...

    A global tipping point for electric cars could come as early as 2022, as battery costs decrease and concerns about range and infrastructure ease. That’s from analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, who in a little over a year’s time have turned even more optimistic about the future dominance of electric cars over internal-combustion vehicles. In a Tuesday note, the analysts forecast that one in three cars will be purely electric by 2030; their July 2016 prediction was one in 10 by the same year. “There are several factors converging that have led us to revise our thinking —...
