    Former president Bill Clinton was caught with his pants down again, getting ready to ogle pretty young girls in a viral photo. In the comical photo posted by Barstool Sports, Clinton is seen with his zipper undone as two hot blondes walk past him on what appears to be a college campus. The lack of context for the viral photo makes it even more hilarious, since Bill looks dazed and confused, like he doesn’t know why he's standing there on a sidewalk. It also does not appear that the former president is accompanied by any of his chaperones or...

"People need to see their history to understand that they are a part of our society," said Sen. Heather Steans, the measure's sponsor.

    A Columbia University student publicly complained about her professor using the word "Negro," even though he said it in a lesson about 1960s America. The Columbia Daily Spector ran a story Thursday about what happens "when professors make racially insensitive remarks." The paper cited a complaint by student Maria Fernanda Martinez of a perceived "microagression." Martinez said her professor told the class it was appropriate to use the term "Negro" when discussing the 1960's, a time when that was the politically correct term for African-Americans.

    A London-based lawyer was ordered to serve 30 days in prison after a federal judge Tuesday handed down the first sentence in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Alex van der Zwaan, 33, a son-in-law of a prominent Russian-based banker, pleaded guilty Feb. 20 to lying to the FBI about his contacts in September and October of 2016 with a business associate of onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and with Manafort’s deputy, former Trump aide Rick Gates. Prosecutors said van der Zwaan also destroyed emails the special counsel had...

Madaleno is the only gay gubernatorial candidate. He told The Washington Post that he thought the word choice was "interesting," and his campaign put out a statement calling it "poor and insensitive."

    Massachusetts voters may never know the true genetic heritage of Sen. Elizabeth Warren,D-Mass., but they can be very clear on what the law says about performing DNA testing without written consent. That's bad news for aspiring conservative super-sleuths, and Howie Carr in particular, who doubt that Warren really is of Native American ancestry. [Snip-em] While exceptions are made for clinical research, Massachusetts doesn't make allowances for genetic truther trolls eager to catch Warren in an obvious lie. And why should it? The senator has already embarrassed herself. Sans evidence of her ancestry, she submitted recipes to the Pow-Wow-Chow cookbook, claimed...

    That's billion with a big, old capital B The Los Angeles Rams are currently engaging in one of the more aggressive construction builds in modern sports history, erecting a palatial tribute to west coast football out in Inglewood, California. The NFL also recently announced it would be moving its NFL Media headquarters to the facility, and rumblings persist about the combine being shipped out of Indianapolis to Los Angeles. In short, this facility is not going to be just a stadium: it's going to a complex and headquarters for a billion-dollar industry. The price tag for that HQ is skyrocketing,...

    Nancy Pelosi had a bear of a time making it through a 6-minute speech on Wednesday. While honoring members of the Office of Strategic Services for their actions during World War II, the House Minority Leader suffered numerous brain glitches during the short remarks. As compiled in a video by The American Mirror, Pelosi misspoke, repeated words, froze, or garbled words no less than 23 times during a speech that clocked in at about 5:33. [Snip] She complimented OSS members’ “brillance” and suffered a face spasm when she attempted to say “bestow”. As more Democrats refuse to say whether they...

    A few hours after Conor Lamb, the Pennsylvania Democrat, claimed victory in a House race with a vow to oppose his party’s leader, Nancy Pelosi, the once-and-perhaps-future speaker was explaining to a group of female congressional candidates why she did not retire after 2016. She intended to do so after Hillary Clinton won, Ms. Pelosi recalled Wednesday at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reception here. But she stayed to ensure Washington had at least one woman in power. To some lawmakers in the room who described her remarks, the message was clear: Ms. Pelosi is not going anywhere - a...

    Here are the best responses to Phillips' question, "Do you think that is committing cultural appropriation?": "Uh ... what?" "I guess it could be perceived as that." "I don't like when people do it to my culture, so, it's just kind of, like, how can I say I don’t like people who do it to my culture and then do it to someone else's?" "Uh ... hm. I honestly don't know." "I honestly have never even thought about it." "That's, like, a really touchy subject. I don't like, to, like, make an assumption about that when I'm not Irish." "Honestly,...
