She also said it casts Iran in a sympathetic light, as the victim in the situation: "If Iran is complying, which...

    Clinton said, “There is no such thing as an alternative fact. And despite the best efforts by some to wage war on truth, reason, and evidence we can not let that happen.” She continued, “When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes like the size of a crowd of an inauguration it is just frustrating to us that pride ourselves on living in a fact-based universe, it is insidious and subversive to democracy. And when they refuse to accept evidence on everything from the settled science of climate change, to what is actually being proposed — because...

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a response to Jerry Jones on Tuesday after the Cowboys owner said he'd sit players who don't stand for the national anthem. "This is not an issue about our flag, this is an issue about police brutality, racism, and the ability of members of the NFL whose communities are disproportionately impacted by police misconduct to peacefully say enough," said NAACP interim President and CEO Derrick Johnson. "This is not simply a Black issue due to the number of white people also killed by police, but we know historically that...

"Halloween is a holiday that not all families celebrate and — for a variety of reasons — some Mitchell families keep their children home from school on that day," Gregory Bayse, principal of Mitchell Elementary School in Needham, wrote in a letter to families, local ABC channel WCVB reported. He quoted...
