    A member of a group protesting President Donald Trump's rejection of the Paris climate agreement vandalized the iconic Wall Street bull late Wednesday. The NYPD told CNBC they found blue paint poured over the bull's head and a sash stating "Draw The Blue Line" around the "Fearless Girl" statue across the bull. "Draw the Blue Line" is the name of the group protesting Trump's decision. The protestor responsible, named Courtney Frances Fallon, told CNBC in an email she was "trying to cover New York City (and the world) with horizontal blue lines to represent rising sea levels for the UN...

    The race for New York City mayor kicked off in earnest Wednesday, as incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio, fresh off his Democratic primary victory, traded barbs with Republican opponent Nicole Malliotakis at separate campaign events. De Blasio, who trounced a field of underdog primary rivals Tuesday by collecting 74 percent of the vote, addressed about two dozen supporters at his campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, where he called the upcoming general election a battle “between a progressive Democrat and a pro-Trump Republican.” Malliotakis, a state assemblywoman from Staten Island who voted for Donald Trump in the general election after endorsing Marco...

    Arguably, the only thing better than Maxine Waters’ skewering of White House weasel and Treasury Department Secretary Steve Mnuchin was the song it inspired—a gospel spin on Waters’ infamous remarks, performed by Broadway actor Mykal Kilgore that immediately went viral. It turns out that New York City’s first lady, Chirlane McCray, is also a fan of the song and its message. This past Sunday, which was World Suicide Prevention Day, McCray used the concept of “reclaiming my time” to urge viewers to take better care of their mental health. (TWEET-AT-LINK) In the public service announcement, McCray appeared opposite Kilgore, who’s...

    Gov. Cuomo and State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman vowed Monday to make President Trump’s threat of deporting Dreamers into a political nightmare. Trump is reportedly on the verge of ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — but will delay enforcement of the revocation for six months to give time for Congress to act. The program, known as DACA, protects some 800,000 immigrants who entered the country illegally as children from deportation. Roughly 42,000 New Yorkers are Dreamers. “If he moves forward with this cruel action, New York State will sue to protect the 'dreamers' and the state's sovereign...

    One of the things we've learned over the past year is that events like the violence in Charlottesville, Va., are often viewed very differently in different places. Places like rural white communities that make up President Trump's most loyal base. One such place is Mineville, N.Y., a tiny Rust Belt town in the Adirondack Mountains north of Albany, where on Sunday afternoon we found Christopher LaMothe sitting on a bench. In these small towns, events like what happened in Charlottesville are also portrayed differently in the conservative media. When Trump first responded to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, he blamed...

    Hillary Clinton's pastor compared her defeat to Christ's crucifixion and a Trump presidency to Hell in a devotional he sent her hours after she lost, it was revealed Friday. The Democratic loser had received a daily prayer from the Rev Bill Shillady, a longtime Clinton family friend, throughout her campaign. But on the Friday morning after her defeat, he sent her a very different text - this time a full-on lamentation, he reveals in a new book and in a CNN interview. It compared her defeat to the crucifixion, and said: 'You, our nation, our world is experiencing a black...

    As President Donald Trump is set to visit New York City next week, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito says he may have the right to come but that his values are “not welcome here” in New York City. And she’s “ready” to join any potential protests that day. On Monday, while on his 17-day vacation at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., Trump announced on Twitter that he is planning to go to New York City next week “for more meetings.” At the time, his spokeswoman said that they would provide more details “in the next day or two.” POLITICO,...

    After Donald Trump was swept into the White House on the shoulders of his far-right base, moderate Republicans and centrist Democrats clung to a hope first kindled after Election Day that his daughter would act as a tempering force on issues, a calming presence even on her father’s sometimes erratic personality. It didn’t happen. And by the end of this week, they know it likely never will. “I had hope she would make some difference,” lamented Connie Morella, a moderate Republican who represented Maryland in Congress for 15 years. “I know she makes an impression on him but she doesn’t...

    (NEW YORK) — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said America should “get behind” President Trump because “the public has spoken – whether you like the results or not” during an appearance on ABC’s The View. Bloomberg said that opposing a president just because they are aligned with the opposing party is the wrong approach. He referenced a 2010 interview with the National Journal in which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” “That’s my country, that’s my kids and grandkids,” Bloomberg...

    NEW YORK (AP) — A fiery Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren warned Friday that President Donald Trump and his Republican allies are preparing to deliver "a knockout blow" to the nation's middle-class. The liberal icon delivered the comments to a packed theater in the heart of Manhattan's Times Square. It was the final scheduled stop in a book tour that featured a half-dozen appearances nationwide over the last two months. She read from the book, "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class," before exciting the overwhelmingly liberal crowd with aggressive rhetoric that demonstrated her appeal...

    After being embroiled in sexting scandals for years—most recently involving a minor—former congressman and New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner was also served divorce papers by his wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The New York Post reports that Abedin has filed for divorce in the Manhattan Supreme Court. Abedin has reportedly asked for the case to remain anonymous, and the filing is uncontested, so there will be no fights over custody of their son, 5-year-old Jordan. She had previously filed for separation in August, during Clinton's campaign, after it emerged that Weiner had exchanged lewd images—one that included Jordan...

    Even in politics, the rich get richer. Take President Trump. Fresh off a big victory with the House passage of an ObamaCare repeal, Trump is also getting lucky again in his enemies. Hillary Clinton is baaack and ready to rumble. Politico reports she is launching a new group to raise money for the resistance to Trump’s presidency. The group will be called Onward Together, and Clinton is said to be meeting with donors to form a board of directors. Her cadre of unemployed hangers-on must be thrilled to have a new slush fund, but most Dems are probably thinking, “Haven’t...

    HILLARY Clinton “faked a smile” and suppressed her “anger” when she was forced to concede defeat to Donald Trump after his meteoric rise to the Presidency, a tell-all book has claimed. The former Secretary of State seemed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory when she lost the electoral college, and with it the Presidency, to Washington outsider Donald Trump. Now a salacious book has claimed the Democrat’s rage “touched every nerve of her body” after being ordered by Barack Obama to admit defeat. The book ‘Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Election Campaign’ claims President Obama implored the first...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wants New York law enforcement to stop protecting President Trump if the federal government doesn't up. "[Mayor Bill de Blasio] ought to tell the Congress if we don't pay for it, New York City cops aren't guarding it, and let the Feds put more people in," Schumer, D-N.Y., told Buzzfeed.

Those costs have continued as first lady Melania Trump and son Barron Trump won't move to...

    NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. — On Friday night a group of Trump supporters came together in New Hartford for a "Deploraball," a play on the remark Hillary Clinton made on the campaign trail. Clinton used the phrase to describe then nominee Donald Trump's supporters. After the election, a Clinton pollster said the comment was the single biggest moment when voters switched from undecided to Trump. The "Deploraball" was a packed out night at Cavellos to mark President Trump's 100th day in office. Peg Roberts of Utica said she couldn't be happier with the progress the Trump campaign has made so far....

    Immediately following Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat against Donald Trump in November, many in the Democratic Party suggested the DNC failed because it chose a well-connected, corrupt, establishment candidate in an election cycle that heavily favored political outsiders. Consequently, many in the Democratic Party called on DNC leaders to find and promote candidates that could better represent middle-class working Americans. However, the early front-runner in the 2020 race to be Clinton’s successor, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), seems to fit the establishment mold much closer than the kind of candidate you would expect a party to pick that’s looking to...
