The Clintons announced on Monday that they would headline a series of live events together — billed “An Evening with The Clintons” — across the country in the final weeks of 2018 and into 2019.
The tour will provide the Democratic stalwarts with a notable platform weeks after the consequential 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, when a number of Democrats will be jockeying for positions in the fight to be the party’s standard bearer against President Donald Trump in 2020.
The events, which are being produced by tour promoter Live Nation, are being billed as “one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history.”
New York Democratic Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be a big hit with the media and younger crowd, but she’s not receiving any special treatment on Capitol Hill.
The 29-year-old socialist is in Washington, D.C., this week for orientation. She and other newly elected officials are touring the Capitol building, meeting with lawmakers, and learning the ins and outs of Congress.
So far, Ocasio-Cortez has stormed the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for a protest, complained that everyone is confusing her an intern or spouse, and was captured in a photo standing alone and being excluded from a conversation between several older Democrats.
On Wednesday, a photo of Ocasio-Cortez standing all by herself like a child waiting for her parents to finish talking scorched across Twitter.
At one point she slowly closed her eyes, as if to reset her brain amid the verbal calamity.
Moments later, she seemed to toy with the man as he crossed his words.
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters appeared dazed and amused at the Capitol on Wednesday as a reporter gleefully peppered the 80-year-old career politician with bungled questions about her presumed chairmanship of the House Financial Services Committee.
A reporter with the “Capitol Intel Group” caught up with Waters in a hallway and rode along in an elevator with the congresswoman and an aide while recording the bizarre encounter “using CI Glass,” whatever that is.
The first migrant caravan arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border this week to find a fortified Tijuana port of entry, and they’re now resting up at Airbnbs in upscale neighborhoods in Playas de Tijuana provided by their American attorneys.
Locals haven’t exactly greeted the group with open arms, according to Mexican journalist Jorge Nieto.
“They … had their first moment of tension in the area of Playas de Tijuana where they are staying with the neighbours who did not appear to agree with their presence,” Nieto posted to Facebook.
Nieto told KGTV locals were “yelling at them go away go to a shelter, this is not your place, all you came here this is a safe area and we are afraid of you.”
Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is getting to work in Washington well ahead of her official swearing-in in January, and one of her first orders of business was to protest the woman slated to lead her party in the House.
The socialist darling from New York joined with the “Sunrise Movement” at Spirit of Justice Park near the Capitol Tuesday morning, before continuing on with the group to speak truth to power at Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office, according to The Intercept.
New York Democratic Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may not be a member of Congress yet, but it looks like she just secured a earlier victory over House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
On Tuesday, the 29-year-old socialist took part in a protest with the “Sunrise Movement,” the group who flooded Pelosi’s office on Capitol Hill with activists who demanded a more progressive climate agenda.
Within hours of the protest, it was reported that Pelosi had recommended to her colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives that they reinstate a committee to address climate change, which is what Ocasio-Cortez wanted.
“PELOSI: ‘I have recommended to my House Democratic colleagues that we reinstate the select committee to address the climate crisis,'” wrote The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein, quoting the California Democrat.
PELOSI: “I have recommended to my House Democratic colleagues that we reinstate the select committee to address the climate crisis."
Why are Democrats fighting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — who just won a majority in the lower chamber — but not calling for loser Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to be ousted?
During a segment Sunday on MSNBC, that’s the million dollar question that was asked by Elie Mystal, a liberal activist and editor of Above The Law.
Mystal took issue with Democrats challenging Pelosi’s leadership and efforts to build a coalition to block her bid to become the Speaker after Democrats regained control of the U.S. House of Representatives last week.
President George W. Bush’s Solicitor General is taking up CNN’s cause against President Trump.
Ted Olson, a partner in the firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, is helping with a lawsuit against the President, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, a Secret Service agent and several others who revoked the press pass of CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta.
…CNN Worldwide chief counsel David Vigilante is joined by two prominent attorneys, Ted Boutrous and Theodore Olson. Both men are partners at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
Last week, before he was retained by CNN, Boutrous tweeted that the action against Acosta “clearly violates the First Amendment.” He cited the Sherrill case.
“This sort of angry, irrational, false, arbitrary, capricious content-based discrimination regarding a White House press credential against a journalist quite clearly violates the First Amendment,” he wrote.
Hillary Clinton — whom former aides predict will again run for president in 2020 — still needs help down the stairs.
The failed presidential candidate — who was dressed like a Star Wars character — gave a short set of remarks to “Community Matters” on Monday and upon their conclusion, needed assistance going down five steps.
A woman stood to Clinton’s right, should she need additional help.
