Trump and white supremacist haters: He's delivering much more than words. Trump and white supremacist haters: He's delivering much more than words.
“Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage.” These were the words spoken by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke when he threw his support behind Donald Trump in February 2016 and urged other white Americans to do the same.

Jill: We can’t say we didn’t see it coming. Someone got forced out of the Trump administration, and it wasn't the communications director who unleashed an epic string of vulgar insults against the White House chief of staff that ended up in The New Yorker because the communications director didn't go off the record.

Private sector has health care cures, if we'd only get out of its way: Steve Forbes Private sector has health care cures, if we'd only get out of its way: Steve Forbes
Who knows what — if anything — Senate Republicans will do about health care reform.

“I wonder what her story is,” FBI Director James Comey said to no one in particular as our motorcade rolled through Lower Manhattan, past an elderly woman on a bench embracing a swaddled child. “Everyone has a story and I bet her story is incredible.” This was not an unusual musing from our now departed leader — a giant of a man with an even bigger heart, whose focus was always on trying to ...
