    Joe Biden flipped the script on the GOP's constant attacks on his mental state, with the former vice president questioning President Trump's own mental acuity. In response to a question on what consequences the president should face if reports that he knew about a Russian government scheme to pay Taliban soldiers to kill American service members overseas were true, Biden said Trump "doesn't seem cognitively aware of what's going on." "This president talks about cognitive capability. He doesn't seem to be cognitively aware of what's going on," Biden said on Tuesday afternoon during a press briefing in Wilmington, Delaware. "The...

    In all his years in auto racing, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace said Tuesday night, he has never seen anything like what he described as a “straight-up noose” that was being used as a door pull in the garage he was assigned last week at Talladega Speedway in Alabama. “I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace told CNN's Don Lemon. “We've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being as their evidence, go ahead,...

    The early June meeting in the Cabinet Room was intended as a general update on President Trump’s reelection campaign, but the president had other topics on his mind. Trump had taken a cognitive screening test as part of his 2018 physical, and now, more than two years later, he brought up the 10-minute exam. He waxed on about how he’d dazzled the proctors with his stellar performance, according to two people familiar with his comments. He walked the room of about two dozen White House and reelection officials through some of the questions he said he’d aced, such as being...

    Former White House national security adviser John Bolton said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that he plans to vote for Joe Biden over his former boss President Trump in November.Why it matters: While Bolton's scathing upcoming memoir about his time in the Trump White House makes clear his disdain for the president, he is a lifelong Republican and conservative who runs two political action committees dedicated to supporting GOP candidates.What he's saying: “In 2016 I voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton,” Bolton told the Telegraph. “Now, having seen this president up close, I cannot do this again. My...

    Mayor Ras J. Baraka today said he will ask the Newark City Council to approve an ordinance that will denounce hate crimes and racism, police brutality and declare white supremacy groups as terrorists in the City of Newark. “We are long overdue on a measure such as this,” Baraka said. “For this country to heal, we must begin to legally challenge the insidious and dehumanizing tenets of white supremacy, once and for all. We must stand up forcefully against racism and have the courage to take on the legal challenges an ordinance such as this will attract.” Newark Corporation Counsel...

    PRESIDENT Donald Trump has a dramatically more enthusiastic voter fan base than Joe Biden, according to a new poll. But the presumptive Democratic nominee still leads, nationally, benefiting from a deep desire among his supporters to get Trump out of office. The national survey, conducted by SSRS for CNN, found that 7 in 10 Trump voters are voting to reelect the president primarily because they support Trump, with 27% saying their decision is a vote against Biden. The former vice president, meanwhile, has a less-devoted following, with 37% of Biden voters saying they plan to cast a pro-Biden vote, and...

    Black Lives Matter sued President Donald Trump and his administration Thursday, alleging that their civil rights and First Amendment rights were violated when peaceful protesters were forced out of Lafayette Square so Trump could take a photo in front of a nearby church. Protesters demonstrating peacefully against police violence in the wake of George Floyd's death were forced out of the square in Washington on Monday by U.S. Park Police and the National Guard. Journalists and protesters alike reported that the otherwise peaceful demonstration was met with authorities using horses, projectiles and gas to force them out.

    Celebrities have taken to social media in recent days in support of Black Lives Matter as protests for racial justice have erupted across the country. And Ashton Kutcher posted to Instagram on Tuesday in support of the BLM movement and called for those who support “All Lives Matter” to be “educated.” In a long IGTV story, the That 70s Show star said “I don’t think that the people posting ‘All Lives Matter’ should be canceled. I think they should be educated.” “So, on Saturday, I posted a blackout of my social media channels, just posted ‘BLM’,” he said. “And a...

    White privilege is often described through the lens of Peggy McIntosh’s groundbreaking essay “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.” Originally published in 1988, the essay helps readers recognize white privilege by making its effects personal and tangible. For many, white privilege was an invisible force that white people needed to recognize. It was being able to walk into a store and find that the main displays of shampoo and panty hose were catered toward your hair type and skin tone. It was being able to turn on the television and see people of your race widely represented. It was being...

The president called Floyd’s death a “tragedy” and said “it should never have happened.” DUELING CLAIMS: TRUMP BLAMES ANTIFA FOR RIOTS, MINNESOTA OFFICIALS POINT FINGERS AT WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND CARTELS “It filled America all over the country with horror, anger and grief,” Trump said Saturday, noting that he spoke to Floyd’s family and “expressed the sorrow of our entire nation for...

    SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — A local woman and her brother say they’re thankful to be okay after a turtle smashed into their windshield. Latonya Lark and Kevin Grant were out running errands around noon on May 12. While riding northbound on Harry S. Truman Parkway near Montgomery Cross Road, Lark noticed something strange coming at them. “I thought it was a brick, and I told [my brother], ‘my God, there’s a brick!’” said Lark, who was driving. She says she started to slow down her vehicle. Before Grant had time to process what was happening from the passenger seat, they...

    WHEN IT comes to social distancing, the Church has got it covered. In recent weeks we’ve seen Men of the Cloth getting seriously creative to ensure their parishioners can worship the Lord in relative safety. Innovations have included car park confessions and drive-by blessings delivering via water pistol. Now a priest in the US has unveiled the latest innovation designed to ensure life gets back to something approaching normal while maintaining a strict two-metre distance from one another. In a picture widely shared around social media, an unnamed clergyman can be seen baptising a young child using another water pistol.
