    Fox News host Megyn Kelly told her network that she received death threats from Donald Trump supporters, New York magazine reported Tuesday. The magazine's Gabriel Sherman did not elaborate on the nature of the threats, which he attributed to "one high-level source." Trump raged at Kelly after she moderated the first Republican presidential debate last Wednesday. During the event, Kelly confronted him with derogatory comments he's made about women, including calling individual women "fat pigs" and "dogs." "Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?" Kelly asked. The real-estate magnate bristled and...

Holder Jr. strongly condemned so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws here Tuesday in a speech to the NAACP that addressed the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin. The laws “sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,” Holder said, by “allowing – and perhaps encouraging – violent situations to escalate in public.”

    Hillary Clinton had America's fashion elite in stitches last night, during her hilarious speech at the CFDA Fashion Awards. The former Secretary of State, who got a standing ovation as she took to the podium at New York's Lincoln Center, took aim at her penchant for pantsuits. She told the assembled crowd: 'I'm going to be pitching Andy [Cohen] on a new show for Bravo... we can call it Project Pantsuit.'

    According to reports from Egypt, the Constitutional Court is seeking to impeach new Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi after Morsi seized quasi-dictatorial power, sparking protests around the country. Morsi waited for the Obama administration’s praise over the Israel-Hamas ceasefire to make the move. Local media reports a courts spokesperson stating, “the judges are prepared to exercise the right to shift the head of state after he flouted the laws and the constitution.” The problem is that there is no operating constitution in Egypt; the constitution was suspended in March 2011, after the revolution, and no new constitution has been approved....
