    Donald Trump has made no bones about it: he’s not a fan of Hillary Clinton. In a Thursday night tweet sent from Trump’s Twitter account to his nearly 3 million followers, Trump quoted a Twitter user questioning how a Hillary Clinton presidency could “satisfy America” if she is unable to “satisfy her husband.”

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump might want to check whatever reflex makes him compulsively retweet his supporters' #Trump2016 messages. The potential presidential hopeful on Thursday shared a fan's tweet that read "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?" Trump deleted the tweet, but not before actor Lenny Jacobson got a screenshot of it: The deleted tweet was also archived on a Boston Glove live blog that tracked tweets from presidential hopefuls during a New Hampshire Republican Party leadership summit. The tweet Trump quoted apparently originated with Sawyer Burmeister, a competitive equestrian who...

Duff Watson says he was asked to de-board a flight from Denver to Minneapolis with his two kids on Sunday after an agent didn’t like a tweet he wrote about her service. Watson and the agent had a disagreement before boarding initially. “I was left, you know, very upset, very embarrassed, very humiliated,” Watson said. He’s an “A-List” passenger, which means he gets priority boarding. But a gate agent wouldn’t let his 6-year-old and 9-year-old...

"And she's back!" Morgan gloated, with absolutely no mention that the article was fake. When critics told him the website was satire, Morgan answered that he knew it was. Yet he praised the notion that it was believable. "That's the beauty of it," Morgan wrote when someone tweeted that it was "hilarious even if its fake. Why? I believed it." That wasn't the first time Morgan has derided...

    The Government Shutdown isn’t just hard for ordinary people. It’s also tough for the folks on top. A contingency plan has been developed to allow Obama to go on functioning with only 1/4 of his 1,701 person staff. And the effect is being felt even by Michelle Obama’s Twitter account. Sure Michelle Obama could take time out from her busy schedule to Tweet once every two days (that’s her average) but due to the Government Shutdown somehow impacting some of her 16 assistants, her Twitter account will now be “limited”. Maybe now she’ll only post once every four days. The...

Thomas, who is black, was part of a 5-4 majority that invalidated part of the Voting Rights Act meant to deter racial discrimination in elections. The ruling makes it tougher for federal officials to prevent states and localities, primarily in the South, from adopting policies that add barriers to voting. In response, state Rep.

We also highlighted the mounting pressure on Nickelodeon to fire the actor from his “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” voice gig. Biggs dismissed his critics by tweeting, “You know I put my dick in a pie, right?” And completely misreading the First Amendment, his wife, Jenny Mollen tweeted, “How weird would it be if we all had freedom of speech? But today all of the disgusting...

    (CNN) -- While the nation wrestled with the aftermath of a shooting in Colorado that left 12 people dead, a Twitter account for the National Rifle Association had this to say: "Good morning, shooters.

"A single individual, unaware of events in Colorado, tweeted a comment that is being completely taken out of context,"...
