That was the latest bizarre flub Nancy Pelosi suffered during her press conference this week.
While appearing before reporters, the House Minority Leader — who stands in line to be the next Speaker of the House if Democrats win in November — suffered brain freezes, botched words and marred the name of the previous president.
Former Vice President Joe Biden hosted his “Biden Courage Awards” in New York City this week to profess his love for the #MeToo movement, prompting folks online to point out “Creepy Joe’s” long history of groping young girls and women during public appearances.
Biden appeared at the city’s Russian Tea Room Wednesday to present the first-ever “Biden Courage Awards,” but they didn’t go to the women and children who have survived his roaming hands. Rather, Biden recognized “student heroes” who “are the leading edge in the world in terms of changing attitudes toward women,” Breitbart reports.
The FBI raid on Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room is renewing aging Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ hopes of impeachment, and she’s playing up reported recordings between Cohen and his client as the smoking gun.
Trump & his backroom advisor Sean Hannity are bosom buddies — both getting advice from the “fixer” Michael Cohen. Can’t wait for the tell-all tapes. Get ready for impeachment!!
Some school districts aren’t wild for the antics of anti-gun campaigner David Hogg.
New York’s Amsterdam School District leaders sent a letter to parents after activists, led by Hogg, announced they would walk out of classes on April 20.
“It’s been just over 2 months,” Hogg tweeted on April 15. “We have walked out of school and now, on 4/20, we walk out everywhere. No matter where you are – if it’s home, school, or work – walk out. Gun violence can happen anywhere at anytime.”
A protest against gun violence at Fort Worth’s Eaton High School devolved into chaos on Tuesday as students clashed over the Confederate flag, racism and gun rights.
About 100 of the school’s roughly 1,603 students took part in the walkout, which was organized by students in concert with administrators to highlight gun violence in schools and honor those killed during a February school shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the Star-Telegram reports.
Lawmakers in several states are moving legislation to require schools and other government buildings to prominently display the national motto – “In God We Trust.”
Tennessee lawmakers approved a measure last month to require “In God We Trust” to be posted on school property for students to view each day, and the bill now awaits a signature from Gov. Bill Haslam. In Arkansas, school officials are working to comply with Act 911, a new state law that requires schools to display In God We Trust posters, as well as the U.S. and Arkansas flags, if those items are donated.
Florida mandated In God We Trust on display, as well, though it’s already on the state flag as the official motto.
President Donald Trump and his longtime attorney Michael Cohen both lost a court challenge related to the FBI’s seizure of Cohen’s documents they both claim are protected by attorney-client privilege.
Cohen had asked a federal judge for a temporary restraining order to stop federal prosecutors in Manhattan from viewing the information seized by the FBI until an independent third party, called a “special master,” be allowed to sort out what is protected by attorney-client privilege. …
U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood denied the requests and ruled that prosecutors will get first access to the information, followed by Cohen’s defense team ten days later. Wood noted that she has not yet decided whether she will appoint a special master in the case at all.
“It’s not that you’re not good people,” Wood told Cohen’s attorneys on Monday afternoon, near the end of the two-hour proceeding. “It’s that you’ve miscited the law.”
