    President Trump met with the queen of England today and committed several protocol gaffes that left many feeling that his behavior was an insult to Britain and lacked the respect that should be shown the monarch — and if not a monarch, a 92-year-old woman. The president was soundly condemned on social media for walking in front of Queen Elizabeth as they inspected a guard of honor of the Coldstream Guards. The queen was forced to bob and weave as she caught up to walk alongside him. Trump did appear to notice, and in the video below you’ll see that...
  • ‘There are NAZIS in our neighborhood’ reads a new billboard on Tacoma’s Pacific Avenue

    A billboard that went up Tuesday on Pacific Avenue in Tacoma doesn’t mince words. “There are NAZIS in our neighborhood,” it reads against a black background. Tacoma Against Nazis paid for the sign, which hovers over a bank just north of South 72nd Street. The same group held a protest outside a tattoo parlor in the 1100 block of South 72nd Street on June 22. The group contends the parlor’s owners and staff are white supremacists. The parlor is less than a mile from the billboard. “We wanted something close to the tattoo parlor but we also wanted something in...

    Congresswoman Lois Frankel (D-FL) made a drastic statement on Wednesday to enunciate her opposition for Brett Kavanaugh‘s nomination to the Supreme Court. Ever since Kavanaugh was tagged by President Trump, Congressional Democrats have promised staunch opposition to Kavanugh’s confirmation — arguing that the nominee would rollback abortion rights along with many other progressive Supreme Court rulings. Kavanaugh’s position on Roe v. Wade is not as easily defined as it is for others who were on Trump’s SCOTUS short list. But nonetheless, Frankel is making her opposition to Kavanaugh crystal clear. How you ask?

    The founder and former CEO of Papa John’s allegedly used a racial slur during a May conference call on how to avoid unflattering public relations incidents, Forbes reported Wednesday. John Schnatter, the company’s chairman and public face, allegedly used the slur during an exercise on handling public relations for the company after he faced blowback for tying the NFL's national anthem protests to lower sales for Papa John’s, according to the magazine. Forbes reported that Schnatter used the slur after being asked how he would distance himself from racist groups, and tried to play down the impact of his statement...

    Some migrant parents who have been reunited with their young children say the children no longer recognize them, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The parents told the newspaper that after waiting months to see their children again, the kids cried and didn’t recognize them. “He didn’t recognize me,” one parent, Mirce Alba Lopez, told The Times of her 3-year-old son. “My joy turned temporarily to sadness.” The parents also said the children believed that the other children they were detained with were their siblings. The families who spoke with the Times were reunited Tuesday after a court ordered the...

    New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tore into a conservative TV host who tweeted a picture of her childhood home in an attempt to discredit her. John Cardillo, a host of Newmax's "America Talks Live," shared a picture of Ocasio-Cortez’s childhood home in Yorktown Heights, falsely claiming she lived there until she went to attend Brown University. “This is the Yorktown Heights (very nice area) home @Ocasio2018 grew up in before going off to Ivy League Brown University,” Cardillo tweeted. “A far cry from the Bronx hood upbringing she’s selling.” Ocasio-Cortez lived in the Bronx's Parkchester apartments before moving...

    I have reached a regrettable conclusion in the era of Trump. I no longer have hope in white America... Those of us whose identities have made us the direct targets of the Trump administration’s hateful rhetoric and discriminatory policies are told to not stoop to President Trump’s level. We are then fed cherry-picked quotes from black luminaries, — or a favorite from Michelle Obama’s convention speech: “When they go low, we go high.”... As for going high? Trump rose to power in no small part due to his promises to bury the political accomplishments of the first black president... Those...

    The 12-year-old daughter of two undocumented immigrant parents delivered an emotional speech at the Families Belong Together rally in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The girl, identified only as “Leah” in a CNN video, fought back tears while speaking out against the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, which has resulted in more than 2,000 migrant children being detained and separated from their parents. “Why do they hurt us like this?” She said. “It is unfair that they get to spend time with their families today while there are children in detention centers and in cages all alone missing their parents, who...

    Sam Park picks at his lunch at El Torero, a Mexican restaurant in Duluth, a northeastern suburb of Atlanta. It’s a somewhat ironic choice, given that the 32-year-old politician could have picked from dozens of nearby places to emphasize his Korean heritage in a neighborhood where Eastern churches and Asian grocery stores abound. This is home, though. And so the fact that Park knows his tacos as well as his Korean BBQ is kind of the point. Increasingly, the area will be known less as the “Seoul of the South,” than simply the modern iteration of “the South.” Gwinnett County,...

    The UK tolerated "inexcusable" treatment of US detainees after the 9/11 attacks, MPs have found. The Intelligence and Security Committee said British agencies continued to supply intelligence to allies despite knowing or suspecting abuse in more than 200 cases. Committee chairman Dominic Grieve said agencies knew of incidents that were "plainly unlawful". The findings have sparked fresh calls for an independent, judge-led inquiry. The two parliamentary reports, published following a three-year investigation, examine how far Britain's intelligence agencies were aware of the mistreatment of terrorism suspects. The ISC said it was "beyond doubt" that the UK knew how the US...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has canceled a pair of public events after she received a “very serious death threat,” CNN reported Thursday. The congresswoman said in a statement that she had seen an increase in threats after she called for protestors to publicly confront Trump officials. "As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should 'be careful', even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office," Waters said in the statement, according to CNN. She said there...

    New York luxury towers owned by President Trump and his senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are reportedly part of the 2 percent of buildings that produce half of the city’s carbon dioxide pollution. Huff Post, citing a study by environmental nonprofits, reported Thursday that Trump International Hotel and Tower, Trump Tower, and the Kushner family’s 666 Fifth Avenue buildings are some of the biggest contributors to pollution. New York Communities for Change, the People’s Climate Movement NY, and other environmental groups compared public data on the buildings' electrical use and how much fossil fuel was burned at each site...

During his remarks on stage, he spoke about the need to “be persistent, or as I’ve been called, stubborn. Stubborn about what you believe in.”

    Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) on Sunday accused President Trump of using immigration rhetoric and "cruel, inhumane policies" to energize his political base. "The president uses words like 'they're breeders,' 'in sanctuary cities they're protecting breeders.' He said yesterday 'they come to infest.' I mean, these are the kinds of words that the Republican Party and this president uses," Gutiérrez said on ABC's "This Week." "And he doesn't use it as immigration policy, he doesn't use it as border control policy, he uses it as an issue in order to energize his political base for the midterm elections." "It's wrong to...

    That’s the 84-year-old MLB Hall of Famer on athletes turning their professional sports platform into a political loudspeaker. Aaron, when asked, said he wasn’t so interested in visiting the White House either, if ever asked: “There’s nobody there I want to see,” he said at a ceremony for the Hank Aaron Champion for Justice Awards, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. President Trump uninvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on the eve of their scheduled celebration at the White House earlier this month, citing the small contingent of players and team representatives that planned to attend. Trump has not hosted...

    The former director of the Office of Government Ethics said on Saturday that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s decision to tweet about being kicked out of a Virginia restaurant violated ethics laws. Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va., on Friday night, but confirmed the incident in a Saturday morning tweet. The tweet also violated the endorsements ban, Shaub argued, since Sanders’s tweet was “an obvious corollary for discouraging patronage." Walter Shaub, the federal government's former top ethics watchdog, tweeted that Sanders's response, which was made from her official White House account, was...

    Protesters confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi as she was leaving a screening of a new Fred Rogers documentary Friday night. Bondi was exiting a Won’t You Be My Neighbor? screening and being escorted out by police when a protester called her out on healthcare and followed her out the door. “What would Mr. Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!” activist Maria José Chapa, a labor organizer, yelled, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Shame on you!”
