    Quinn Norton Twitter ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The New York Times decided to sever ties with the newest addition to their editorial page on Tuesday — just hours after they announced her arrival. Tech writer Quinn Norton ended her very short tenure at the newspaper after controversy erupted over her use of racial and homophobic slurs on Twitter. “Despite our review of Quinn Norton’s work and our conversations with her previous employers, this was new information to us,” read a statement from editorial page editor, James Bennet. “Based on it, we’ve decided to go our separate ways.” In a series of tweets,...

    US President Donald Trump has denied using crude words attributed to him about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. Reports that he had called them “s---hole countries” in an Oval Office meeting generated a backlash worldwide. One UN official called the remarks racist and said they opened “the door to humanity’s worst side”. But Mr. Trump has tweeted that “this was not the language” he used in a meeting about immigration. He wrote that the language he used was “tough, but this was not the language used”. The Washington Post, the New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal...

    ST. LOUIS • Veteran Democratic fundraiser Matthew Lieberman has been charged with multiple felony gun crimes after allegedly firing a handgun and shouting racial slurs at eyewitnesses at two businesses Tuesday. Lieberman pointed a handgun at someone at the Amoco gas station on Skinker Boulevard and Highway 40 (Interstate 64) while using racial epithets just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to court documents. He then allegedly fired multiple shots at the building from his car. In court documents, investigators said surveillance footage showed Lieberman with the gun, and bullet casings at the scene matched the make and model of bullet...

    At a Navajo veterans’ ceremony over the weekend, President Trump made a brief joke at Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren’s expense, calling her "Pocahontas," that left the media practically foaming at the mouth. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Matthew Dowd and Meghan McCain perhaps had the most overdramatic analysis of the comment, slamming it as a “gross” “attack” and a “racial slur,” on Good Morning America. Anchor George Stephanopoulos hyped that “the president raised a lot of eyebrows” with this comment, inviting “Republican” analysts Meghan McCain and Matthew Dowd to bash Trump. After playing the video clip of Trump saying Warren is known...

    In late September, five black cadet candidates found racial slurs scrawled on message boards on their doors at the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School. One candidate found the words “go home n‑‑‑‑‑‑” written outside his room, his mother posted on social media, according to the Air Force Times. The racist messages roiled the academy in Colorado Springs and prompted the school to launch an investigation. They led its superintendent to deliver a stern speech that decried the “horrible language” and drew national attention for its eloquence.

    An investigation by the US Air Force Academy has determined a cadet who reported a racist message outside their dorm room is the person responsible for the messages left on several message boards. As a result the cadet candidate is no longer at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School. The academy had reported 5 African-American cadet candidates found messages outside their dorm rooms on September 27 that read "go home (n-word)".

    SEOUL, South Korea — Famous for using bombastic, derogatory and often-awkward English slams against enemies, North Korean state media sent people scrambling for dictionaries Friday with a dispatch that quotes leader Kim Jong Un calling President Donald Trump “the mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” The what? Dotard means a person in a feeble or childish state due to old age. It’s a translation of a Korean word, “neukdari,” which is a derogatory reference to an old person. It was used in an unusual direct statement from Kim that the Korean Central News Agency transmitted verbatim in response to Trump’s speech at...

    PJ Media ^ | 9/13/17
    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't hold back when asked about an ESPN host's now-famous anti-Trump Twitter tirade calling the president a white supremacist. SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill began her tirade by saying, "Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists." A reporter asked Sanders if the president was aware of the comment. "I'm not sure if he's aware [of that comment] but I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make -- and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN," Sanders answered.

    Longtime liberal pollster Stuart Rothenberg apparently had a hard time handling President Donald Trump's visit to West Virginia on Thursday. During that visit, Mountain State Governor Jim Justice officially announced his switch to the Republican Party, thereby consolidating full GOP control over the executive and legislative branches in that state, and bringing the total number of Republican U.S. governors to 35.

    Walmart was apologizing on Monday after an appalling description of a product by a third-party vendor made its way onto the retail giant’s website. The retailer was slammed early Monday after the color of a netting weave cap — used as a protective layer between a person’s hair and sewn-in hair extensions — on its site was described as the color “N— Brown.” “Hey @Walmart what are you doing,” Twitter user Kwani Lunis tweeted with a screenshot of the problematic product listing. New York Times best-selling author Roxane Gay condemned the retail chain, tweeting that dropping the N-bomb on their...

    Trump: Calling Warren Pocahontas ‘an insult to Pocahontas’ By Olivia Beavers - 06/25/17 11:23 AM EDT President Trump said Sunday that when he calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) "Pocahontas," it is an insult to the renowned Native American woman. "She's a hopeless case. I call her Pocahontas, and that's an insult to Pocahontas," Trump said in an interview with Pete Hegseth on "Fox and Friends," adding that Warren is "a highly overrated voice." Trump has repeatedly used "Pocahontas" as an insult on the campaign trail to refer to Warren's claims about her Native American heritage. Similarly, Trump previously said that...

    Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who refused to stand during the playing of the National Anthem, has raised the level of his stupidity and ignorance to new heights by likening the police to "the fugitive slave patrol." Kaepernick made his comments following the not guilty verdict in the trial of a Minnesota police officer charged with murdering a black motorist during a traffic stop. The quarterback, who, unsurprisingly is having trouble finding a job, tweeted a picture of a police badge and a badge worn by agents for Southern state governments charged with hunting down fugitive slaves. A system that...

    Fox News Channel is parting ways – again – with Bob Beckel, the co-host of its primetime program, “The Five.” “Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,” the network said in a statement. The dismissal opens – or perhaps closes – another chapter in an off-and-on relationship Beckel has had with the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet over the years. Beckel, a longtime political consultant as well as a former campaign manager for Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale, joined Fox News in 2000, and had a years-long tenure on “The Five” when it...

    Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond (La.) made a crude joke about White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday night during the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner. Richmond joked that Conway looked "familiar" in a position on her knees, referencing a viral photo of Conway kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office, the Daily Caller reported. "You even mentioned Kellyanne and that picture on that sofa," Richmond said during his speech to Republican Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.). "I really want to know what was going on there because she really looked kind of familiar in that position there, but don't...
