    "Rush Limbaugh is a great guy who truly gets it!" President Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning. The president made the comment one day after Limbaugh explained to his radio listeners why Trump said in a July 29 tweet: "I would be willing to 'shut down' government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!"

    Clinton came under fire early Monday after a testy exchange with an interviewer about whether or not he should have privately apologized to Lewinsky. During an evening event later that day, Clinton revisited the conversation and defended the public apology he gave in September 1998. "The hubub was I got hot under the collar because of the way the questions were asked," Clinton said Monday night, referencing his interview on NBC's Today Show earlier that day. "I think what was lost were the two points that I made, that are important to me: the suggestion was that I never apologized...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 27, 2018
    Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky is calling for a “cultural revolution” in how people consume online news so that “more shame" no longer means “more clicks” and more advertising income. Lewinsky told hundreds of privacy professionals Tuesday “we need to communicate online with compassion, consume news with compassion, and click with compassion." "Just imagine walking a mile in someone else’s headline," she said in a Washington speech that was contractually closed to the press.

    This April, Harper will publish Chasing Hillary, a new political memoir from New York Times writer-at-large Amy Chozick, EW can confirm exclusively. The book will provide a remarkably intimate and deeply personal portrait of Hillary Clinton as she withstood two dramatic losses for the presidency. Chozick’s book is the result of a decade’s worth of reporting on the former U.S. Secretary of State. Chozick’s front-row seat to Clinton’s presidential campaign implosion in 2008 led to her getting assigned the “Hillary Beat” through to 2016, when she’d once again face a painful defeat, this time in the general election to Donald...

    Bill Clinton was getting a foot massage. “We were on the terrace of his apartment,” recalled the 20-something intern at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum who was massaging Bill’s feet. “We had a meal served from 42 [the restaurant in the Little Rock library] — ­vegan stuff like kale salad. “He often invites girls like me who work at the library to his apartment for a glass of red wine and a massage,” the intern said in an interview for this book. “He likes his neck and shoulders massaged because he gets knots in his muscles. But...

    Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com. Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on...

    WASHINGTON -- As part of its “deeming” regulations announced early this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) included major decisions on cigars, namely the inclusion of premium cigars under its jurisdiction and a guidance suggesting an extension of the flavored-tobacco ban to include characterizing flavors in cigars. Before the deeming regulations were announced, an initial proposed rule contained an option to exempt cigars from FDA regulation altogether. That did not happen. “The FDA has concluded there is no appropriate public health justification for excluding premium cigars,” said Mitch Zeller, director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP)....

    Proclaiming Hillary Clinton "the best change maker I have ever known," former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday told a crowd at an Evanston synagogue his wife was the most experienced and best-qualified candidate to serve as the nation's next commander in chief. "You might say, 'Why have they been so mean to her since she left the secretary of state's office,'" he said of Republicans. "You have to understand this is their method of operation. They're scared to have to run against her, because they know if she becomes the president, she'd be the grown-up in every room and she'll...

    Perhaps growing tired of targeting his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump has now set his sights on her husband. Trump seems intent on bringing former President Bill Clinton's womanizing ways back into the limelight as he begins to campaign on behalf of his wife. If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2015 Considering Hillary has often claimed to be a defender of women's rights, Does Trump have a right to bring up her husband's "sexism" to expose...

    A historic Tampa cigar factory has been destroyed in a fire. Authorities say the roof and floors of the Palmetto Beach Cigar Factory collapsed in the fire which broke out shortly after midnight Sunday. The fire marshal said the building is considered a total loss. It's unclear whether anyone was inside at the time. Firefighters were not able to enter the building for safety reasons. They had the fire under control in less than two hours, but were still putting out hot spots on Sunday afternoon.

    Former President Bill Clinton acquainted himself with the former cheerleader ambassador for the Washington Redskins—known to most in the liberal community simply as the Washington Football Team. Kirby Parkhomenko served as cheerleader ambassador for the team through last season and also is a staffer at Ready for Hillary. Hillary Clinton has called the team name “insensitive” in the past, and has said that “there’s no reason for it to continue as the name of a team in our nation’s capital.”

    Hillary Clinton published an op-ed Friday in a small Las Vegas-based Spanish-language newspaper about immigration, reassuring the Spanish-speaking Hispanic community in Nevada that they “can count on [her]. “Don’t deceive yourselves: when they speak of ‘legal status,’ it’s a code for ‘second class status’,” Clinton wrote of Republican immigration proposals that do not provide a pathway to citizenship. The article was published Friday in El Mundo Las Vegas, a local Spanish-language paper that has not yet posted it online.

    Box CEO Aaron Levie has thrown his support behind presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as the 2016 race kicks into gear. Levie, the 30-year-old founder of the recently-public company, has agreed to host a fundraiser for the Democratic frontrunner. Levie, who was busy building his “cloud” data storage business back in 2008 the last time Clinton ran, told Reuters that this year’s election is a big one for the tech sector. The stakes are high given that issues such as improving the patent system, securing visas, and protecting privacy rights directly affect his business and others in and around Silicon Valley....

    The Chicago media executive hosting Hillary Clinton at his home for an afternoon fundraiser Wednesday ranks in the elite category of those who have given at least $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. The foundation’s website lists Eychaner’s Alphawood Foundation as a donor of somewhere between $10,001 and $25,001, but an examination of the Alphawood Foundation’s Form 990 tax documents reveals that it in fact contributed $7.25 million from 2003 to 2007. That’s not the only point of confusion: The low-profile Eychaner, a major Democratic fundraiser who started Alphawood, is listed by the Clinton Foundation as one of just seven...

    A new blog post written by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) may appear to be an attempt to align with Hillary Clinton, but it takes direct aim at multiple Clinton Foundation donors. Warren’s post, “I agree with Hillary Clinton,” details her concerns with a provision in the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement that she says “would let foreign companies challenge American laws outside of American courts.” “The Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provision isn’t a one-time, hypothetical problem—we’ve seen it in past trade agreements,” Warren wrote. Three of the five companies Warren uses as examples of companies that have abused similar...

    April 14, 2015 MONTICELLO, Iowa—Hillary Clinton may have been speaking to just 22 people here at her Iowa kickoff event, but the now-official 2016 candidate was looking far beyond the voters in the room when she outlined in the clearest terms yet the rationale for her campaign. "A lot of people in the last few days have asked me, 'Why do you want to do this?' and 'What motivates you?'" Clinton said at the event. "And I've thought a lot about it, and I guess the short answer is, I've been fighting for children and families my entire life. ......
