    Subtitle: Covering Hillary Clinton’s campaign from before it started to the very last moment. Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite at the Peninsula hotel. She stopped to pour what somebody told me was Veuve Clicquot into everyone’s glasses, figuring that in a couple of hours Donald Trump’s run of early victories in red states (West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama) would end and the map would turn back in her mom’s favor. Three hours later,...

    “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,...

    Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel has noticed something. Anti-Trump jokes go over like a lead balloon with people who matter to Hollywood: the audience. And Kimmel admits the audience is sick of this tired routine. A jackass has just woke up and smelled the coffee. DEADLINE: Having missed last year, this will actually be your first upfronts of the Trump Era. Having you been saving up a barrelful of barbs for the President and his ongoing big show? KIMMEL: Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully it’ll be...

    Confederate General Jubal Early, leading about 10,000 men of the Second Corp, Army of Northern Virginia attacks Fort Stevens in Washington DC. The Union forces around in and around the fort are about equal to Early's force. As the attack develops, additional reinforcements from two Union Corps arrive on scene and stall Early's assault. The next day,skirmishing continues, but Early has decided any further attacks will only result in high casualties with little chance of success. He begins withdrawing his forces back into Virginia.

    The Daily Caller ^ | 29 Jun 18 | Justin Caruso
    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rejected calls of civility in a recent interview, calling for “strength and resolve” to resist President Trump. The Guardian reports that when asked about some on the left becoming “uncivil” recently, she responded: “‘Oh, give me a break,’ she erupts, eyes widening into indignation. ‘Give me a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than taking children away? It should be met with resolve and strength. And if some of that comes across as a little uncivil, well, children’s lives are at stake; their futures are at stake. That is that ridiculous concept of bothsideism.'”

    New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said late Thursday that she doesn’t think President Trump “knows how to deal with a girl” who is from the Bronx. During an appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Ocasio-Cortez spoke about her win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in the 14th district’s Democratic primary. Colbert, however, asked Ocasio-Cortez about the president’s tweet regarding Crowley’s loss. “Well you know, the president is from Queens, and with all due respect - half of my district is from Queens – I don’t think he knows how to deal with a girl from...

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday that New York Rep. Joe Crowley "got his a– kicked" in his Democratic primary Tuesday by a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter "who had a lot of energy." "Last night, we had a great evening," Trump told a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is facing Democratic incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in November. "We watched that television — and we were winning left and right," Trump said. "They didn't know what the hell happened.

    Nancy Pelosi sits in a black-leather booth at Americana, a burger bistro in downtown Des Moines, radiating optimism. "We're in a very good place," she says of Democrats' odds in November. Special-election results suggest more than 100 seats in the House of Representatives are in play, and Democrats need less than two dozen to regain a majority. At the prospect of a victory that could check Trump's power – and, Pelosi expects, reinstall her as House speaker – she bangs a piece of cutlery, hard, on the table. "The gavel," she says. "The gavel makes all the difference in the...

Comey made the remark during a public interview in Dublin, the Irish Times reported. “I am ashamed of the way my country has acted with respect of those children. I am disgusted, I am horrified, I am embarrassed, I’m ashamed,” he said.

    The first major Democratic candidate to launch a bid for Wisconsin governor has ended his campaign. Milwaukee businessman Andy Gronik announced his decision to withdraw from the race on Thursday, following a Marquette University Law School poll that found he was supported by 4 percent of Democrats who plan to vote in the Aug. 14 primary election. "The response to my candidacy has been incredible, and we’ve been picking up momentum and supporters every day, but just not fast enough," Gronik said in a statement. "It’s time for me to step down and give someone a legitimate chance to win...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday he's not comfortable with a Trump administration policy that separates children and parents at the southern border, as House Republicans, under increasing pressure to address the humanitarian crisis, raced to finish a new immigration bill. "We don't want kids to be separated from their parents," Ryan said, adding that the policy is being dictated by a court ruling that prevents children who enter the country illegally from being held in custody for long periods. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi pushed back on that assessment, saying that President Donald Trump could "stop...

    Former head of Disney’s animation studios announced a sabbatical in November after reports of inappropriate workplace behavior John Lasseter will exit Disney on Dec. 31, the company announced Friday. The former chief creative officer overseeing Pixar and Disney Animation will assume an unspecified “consulting role” at Disney until his departure. Lasseter announced he was taking a sabbatical in November after the publication of a Hollywood Reporter story in which “former Pixar insiders” said he frequently made a habit of “grabbing, kissing, making comments about physical attributes” of women at the company. At the time, Lasseter said his leave of absence...

The remaining 32 passengers were placed on other aircraft to continue their trips. Passengers reported smelling smoke, and one said he smelled marijuana. “It looked like that someone needed to smoke a joint on a plane, and he went into the bathroom, smoked his blunt, and set off the fire alarm,” passenger Jonathan Burkes said.

    Wednesday at the New York State Democratic Party’s convention in Long Island, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton declared that Democrats “believe in facts.” Clinton said, “I followed in the footsteps of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, someone whose words have been on my mind recently. He said, ‘everyone is entitled to their opinion, but not his own facts.’ Well as Democrats, we believe in facts, real ones, not the alternative kind. It is hard to believe this even needs to be said, but that is where we are these days.”

    Robert De Niro, a frequent critic of President Trump who has been playing special counsel Robert Mueller on "Saturday Night Live," talked Tuesday about how he'd like to bar the president from eating at his Nobu restaurant chain. The Daily Mail reported that De Niro, a co-founder of the Nobu restaurant and hotel chain, insisted that he would not let Trump eat in his restaurants, and that he would leave any other eatery where the president entered. “If he walked into a restaurant I was in, I’d walk out,” De Niro said. Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, De Niro’s co-owner, then joked...

    Hillary Clinton says she’s “still” not over the 2016 election, and she showed it Sunday during a speech at Yale — cracking a joke about Kremlin interference and busting out a large Russian hat to boot. “If you can’t beat them, join them,” Clinton quipped. The jab came during her commencement speech at Yale’s Class Day. Keeping up with the university’s longstanding tradition of bringing an “over the top hat” to the ceremony, Clinton pulled out a black Ushanka and playfully went to put it on. “I see looking out at you that you are following the tradition of over-the-top...

    A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and...

    Lebanon held on Sunday its first parliamentary elections in nine years, as citizens expressed cautious optimism that the country's rigid, oft-deadlocked sectarian political system could be swayed. Behind the scenes, however, one of the world's leading powers has quietly eyed the small state as a potential ground to project its power in the Middle East and into the Mediterranean. But it won't be easy. With Syrian rebels and jihadis at bay, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government set to further extend its comeback, Russia has pursued a cautious overture across the border into Lebanon—a $1 billion dollar arms deal, including...
