    Two sisters famous for praising President Trump say Facebook has deemed their videos dangerous. Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson are better known as “Diamond and Silk” to their hundreds of thousands of fans — one of whom is Trump. The sisters, who are black, campaigned for him in an election in which blacks overwhelmingly voted against the Republican. And the sisters continue to defend him against accusations of racism. (“Build that wall, build it tall, protect us all before this country falls,” they once rapped) Thank you Diamond and Silk! https://t.co/qdsLUy2hqD — Donald J.

    If she knew it was going to land her back in prison, Crystal Mason said she would have never cast a vote in the 2016 presidential election. The 43-year-old former tax preparer hadn't even planned on voting until her mother encouraged her to do it. She had only recently been released from federal prison for a 2012 tax fraud conviction, in which she pleaded guilty to inflating returns for her clients, her attorney, J. Warren St. John, told The Washington Post. She was still on community supervision at the time of the election - but no one, including her probation...

    Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel says he has no regrets about ripping President Donald Trump on a near-nightly basis even if it turns off countless conservative viewers. “A lot of people are going with this line of reasoning where they say, people in show business shouldn’t speak out about politics,” Jimmy Kimmel told in an interview with ABC News’ Paula Faris on Tuesday. “And yet … they elected Donald Trump the president of the United States. So I think that argument has pretty well jumped out the window.” Most recently, the Live host has pushed political views like amnesty for illegal...

    I suppose this was inevitable because it’s 2018 and everything has to be terrible. It looks as if the Philadelphia Eagles playbook has been expanded to include more than screen passes and flea flickers.Step 1: Win Super Bowl for first time in franchise history. Step 2: Watch as fans set fire to city, loot department stores and tear down street lights. Step 3: Turn victory into political statement so some players can be part of the #RESIST movement.Time Magazine reports that a number of players didn’t waste any time on celebrating or planning for the next season before they...

Schumer today announced that Congressman Joe Kennedy III will deliver the Democratic response to President Donald Trump’s joint address to Congress next week.   “From health care to economic justice to civil rights, the Democratic agenda stands in powerful contrast to President Trump's broken promises to American families," said Congressman Kennedy.

    The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses. The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said. President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.

    Chelsea Manning was turned back at the Canadian-U.S. border because she was convicted of espionage for passing information to Wikileaks, the former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Monday. Manning told Reuters via direct message on Twitter that she drove up to the Canadian border in Lacolle, Quebec, on Thursday evening, planning to vacation in Montreal and Vancouver. She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online. The offenses Manning was convicted of under the...

I said, 'No.' "

    Filmmaker Michael Moore is continuing to speak out against President Trump. In an interview with the Huffington Post on Friday, Moore commented on Trump's recent actions that many critics say reverse much of the work done by the previous administration on addressing climate change. Moore said, "For him to tear up every single regulation instituted by President Obama on climate change and for him to say that that will no longer be a concern when they make their decisions, is not just a f**k you to the rest of this world, but it's a declaration of war against the actual...

    Witches are uniting in an effort to cast a spell on President Donald Trump and his administration that would effectively block the “harm” that could be done through his presidency — and it would appear that pop singer Lana Del Rey might be participating in the ritual as well. The Verge reported Friday that the ever mysterious “Video Games” singer, Lana Del Rey, posted to Twitter on Thursday a tweet that suggests that, even if she doesn’t plan to participate herself, she seems to at least condone a midnight ritual being held by witches around the world at midnight (Eastern...

    WASHINGTON A Russian venture capitalist and tech expert whose name and company are mentioned in the now-notorious document alleging connections between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian hackers says no intelligence officers have ever contacted him about the accusations, which he says are false. A report compiled by a former Western intelligence official as opposition research against Trump was made public Tuesday when BuzzFeed posted its 35 pages. The document included unsubstantiated claims of collusion between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin. It also alleged that global tech firm XBT Holding, with operations in Dallas, was instrumental in the...

    President-elect Donald Trump ordered every Obama-appointed diplomat home in the days which will immediately following his inauguration, according to a Thursday report from The New York Times. The Department of State sent a cable to all diplomats nationwide advising them of the break from tradition Dec. 23. Past administrations allowed diplomats an extension until a replacement could be found and moved to each post, according to the report. Trump made it clear he doesn’t want any political appointee of the outgoing president to serve during his administration, a decision Trump staffers insist is not “ill will.” The new administration just...
