Trump's six-month report card

The verdict is in, and President Trump’s first six months in office have been an abject failure — at least, that’s the conclusion most of the media have drawn. We’re just 12.5 percent of the way into Trump’s first term, but many journalists have taken it for granted that h

The Boy Scouts of America distance themselves from President Trump

The Boy Scouts of America are creating as much distance from President Donald Trump as they can. Trump gave a campaign-style partisan speech at the National Scout Jamboree on Monday. The Republican went after former President Barack Obama, highlighted his victory over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and spoke about his favorite target -- the fake news media. President Trump said the following: "The fake media will say...'President Trump spoke before a small crowd of boy scouts today.'" "Did President Obama...

Before Unveiling New Economic Agenda, Schumer Says Democrats, Not Russia, Are to Blame for 2016 Loss

Today, the new and improved economic agenda for the Democratic Party will be revealed. The Washington Post reported that it’s going to focus on curbing prescription drug costs, smarter trade deals, job retraining, increased Internet access into rural America, and will also include the coveted $15 minimum wage to round out the grocery list. It’s the start of something for a party that has struggled to find a message (and a leader) seven months into the Trump...

Doctors consider next treatment for McCain's brain tumor

Sen. John McCain's tumor is one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer, and his doctors are determining next treatment options even as the senator, in a tweet, promised his colleagues in Congress he'd "be back soon." McCain underwent surgery last week to have a blood clot removed from above his left eye, and that clot turned out to be a sign that a tumor called a glioblastoma had begun growing. Here are some things to...

Trump's six-month report card

The verdict is in, and President Trump’s first six months in office have been an abject failure — at least, that’s the conclusion most of the media have drawn. We’re just 12.5 percent of the way into Trump’s first term, but many journalists have taken it for granted that his presidency has been a disaster of historic proportions. The public’s view is more nuanced, though probably not where the Trump administration would like it. Although polls...

Republicans divided after second health care bill collapses

Republicans in the U.S. Congress were in chaos over healthcare legislation after a second attempt to pass a bill in the Senate collapsed late on Monday, with President Donald Trump calling for an outright repeal of Obamacare and others seeking a change in direction toward bipartisanship. "Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement. Two...
