    ...(But so is Trump) • Lorne Michaels was filmed leaving SNL's after-party in New York at about 4am • When he was asked why the show avoided the Weinstein controversy, he smiled and responded: 'It's a New York thing' • An audience member has since revealed the cast did try out a Weinstein joke during a dress rehearsal but it was cut before it went to air • The joke apparently got a big reaction from the audience • SNL regularly pokes fun of President Donald Trump who hails from New York

    One group of negotiators spent all day Sunday working on the labour file, according to a schedule of the talks obtained by The Globe and Mail. One source familiar with the discussions said Canada wants the United States to pass a federal law stopping state governments from enacting right-to-work legislation; the source said the United States has not agreed to such a request. Canada believes that lower labour standards in the United States and Mexico, including right to work, give those countries an unfair advantage in attracting jobs.

    Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich is calling for Donald Trump's impeachment "as soon as possible." His argument, in a nutshell: Trump is almost as deranged and mentally unstable as…Robert Reich. Here is his initial argument in his own words (from an August 18 blog post): Let’s be clear. There is already enough evidence to impeach Trump on grounds of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution. There is already enough evidence of mental impairment to invoke the 25th amendment. I know, Republicans are in control of Congress. But this is no...
  • Grizzly bears go vegetarian due to climate change, choosing berries over salmon

    The Telegraph (UK) ^ | 8/25/17 | Victoria Ward
    Grizzly bears have stopped eating salmon in favour of elderberries after being forced to make a choice due to climate change. Warming temperatures meant that the berries are ripening earlier than usual, at exactly the same time as the freshwater streams on Alaska’s Kodiak Island are overflowing with sockeye salmon. The island's brown bears typically feed first on salmon in early summer, followed by elderberries later in the season, in late August and September. “What you have is a scrambling of the schedule," said William Deacy, a biologist at Oregon State University that studied the phenomenon. "It's essentially like if...
  • Trump Is Just Six Senate Votes Away From Impeachment

    At some point in 2019 (if not sooner) a Republican Senator may walk into the Oval Office and say to President Trump: “Mr. President, we don’t have the votes,” at which point the Trump presidency will end in a resignation or a conviction in the Senate. This scenario actually occurred forty-three years ago this summer when Republican Senator Barry Goldwater walked into the Oval Office and told Republican President Richard Nixon that they didn’t have the votes in the Senate to save his presidency.

    Articles Of Impeachment Brought For Third Time Against Republican Donald Trump Polls have now shown a majority of Americans thought the response to the Charlottesville domestic terror attack by Republican Donald Trump was incredibly weak. Despite that reality, Trump has now tripled down on his affinity for the traitorous past of the Confederacy with another early morning Tweet storm in support of the statues representing that ugly history. Now, it appears one Democrat has had enough of the dog whistles and will introduce articles of impeachment against Trump over his continued olive branches to white supremacists. Democrat Steve Cohen of...

    The guy who helped President Donald Trump write his seminal book, The Art of the Deal, said the former reality-TV star will soon leave the White House on his own accord. In a series of tweets Wednesday, Tony Schwartz—who co-authored the 1987 book that helped define the real estate magnate's public image—said he thought the walls were closing in on Trump and he would soon leave office in an attempt to save face. Every tweet Schwartz sent Wednesday was about Trump. "Think of Trump as a toddler w/reactive attachment disorder, and therefore in a permanent virulent tantrum. His development ended...

    Horror novelist Stephen King took to Twitter Friday to call for President Donald Trump to be “removed” from office. “Donald Trump is unfit for office. Needs to be removed,” the author wrote. The social media missive was just the latest attack King has lodged at President Trump in recent months. Last month, the 69-year-old Dark Tower author called Trump “fake” in a Twitter post that went viral online. “The news is real. The president is fake.” he wrote. King, however, wasn’t the only celebrity to call for Trump’s removal from office Friday. Comedian Chelsea Handler urged the president’s generals to...

    ...." Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago. President Trump’s first term is ostensibly just warming up, but luminaries in his own party have begun what amounts to a shadow campaign for 2020 — as if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren’t involved. The would-be candidates are cultivating some of the party’s most prominent donors, courting conservative interest groups and carefully enhancing their profiles. Mr. Trump...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Republican candidates with their eyes on a White House run may be seriously considering the prospect of challenging President Donald Trump in 2020 because they "see weakness," The Hill reported Saturday. "They see weakness in this president," McCain told The New York Times. "Look, it's not a nice business we're in." The Times reported Saturday that Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ben Sasse of Nebraska, GOP Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and even Vice President Mike Pence could be laying the groundwork for a White House run in 2020. McCain hasn't been shy about...

    Donald Trump would resign before Congress is able impeach him, a senior US representative has said, as pressure mounts over his team's alleged links to Russia. Jackie Speier, who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said attempts by the President to pardon members of his family or fire the man appointed to investigate Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election could trigger an impeachment vote. “I have always thought that he was never going to fulfil his full term,” she said. “I am more convinced that he will leave before any impeachment would take place.”

    In mid-August 2011, then-non-politician Donald Trump levied a critique of President Barack Obama. @BarackObama played golf yesterday. Now he heads to a 10 day vacation in Martha's Vineyard. Nice work ethic. This was one of dozens of tweets criticizing Obama for playing golf. (Here’s another classic.) It was one of a handful that also dinged Obama for taking a vacation. Subscribe to the Post's Must Reads newsletter: Compelling stories you can't afford to miss On the campaign trail, Trump was adamant: He would rarely play golf — “I’m not going to have time to go play golf,” he once said...

    Pat Cunnane spent six years in the White House helping to promote Barack Obama’s message. From the outside, he still does: On Tuesday, Cunnane became the latest Obama alumnus to land a contract for a book on his experiences. While much of the world obsesses about the more impetuous musings of President Trump — or perhaps in reaction to that obsession — a new market for Obama nostalgia is manifest in the growing number of books, podcasts and TV and film treatments by or involving young veterans from the Obama stable.

    Warren calls for Sessions to be fired © Greg Nash Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to be fired, comments that come on the eve of his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee. "He needs to be fired. He needs to be taken out of that job," Warren told “The Axe Files,” a joint podcast between CNN and the University of Chicago Institute of Politics that is hosted by Democratic strategist David Axelrod. Warren cited Sessions's acknowledgment earlier this year that he had two meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that he failed to disclose...

Derek Baars, one of the foster parents, said “We have a no-lying policy” after being told by a child support worker that they must tell the girls, aged 3 and 4, that the Easter bunny is real because it’s an important part of Canadian culture. “We explained to the agency that we are not prepared to tell...
