President Donald Trump's youngest daughter Tiffany Trump found herself in the spotlight on social media Tuesday night during her father's State of the Union address—for matching her attire with Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instead of the Trump family women. Tiffany Trump wore a long-sleeved blouse and long skirt in solid white, the color that the House Democratic Women's Working Group announced they would don to the address to show solidarity for women's suffrage. Pelosi wore a white pant suit with red and blue accessories. Tiffany Trump's sister Ivanka Trump wore a mostly black suit with a streak of red along the sides, while first lady Melania Trump chose a long, military-inspired black coat. It is unclear whether Tiffany Trump purposefully dressed against the grain of her family, but the plan for Democrats to wear suffragette white was publicized before the president's speech. The women's working group chair, Florida Representative Lois Frankel, tweeted a photo of … [Read more...] about Tiffany Trump Wears White Like Nancy Pelosi at SOTU

Jaden Smith revealed he walked out of Kanye West 's surprise Paris fashion week show on Monday due to the controversial star wearing a shirt that read " White Lives Matter ." West, who legally changed his name to Ye in 2021, made an unannounced appearance at his Yeezy Season 9 collection, and his choice of attire has attracted much attention. His shirt not only featured a "White Lives Matter" message on the back but also a photo of Pope John Paul II on the front. West also brought well-known rightwing commentator Candace Owens as a guest to the show, who wore her own "White Lives Matter" shirt. Smith, also known mononymously as Jaden, is a musician and actor, as well as the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith . He wrote on Twitter that he left West's show, stating "I had to dip."

Smith posted several other messages on Twitter about … [Read more...] about Jaden Smith demands “progressive future” after Ye’s “White Lives Matter”
President Donald Trump pledged Monday to give U.S. law enforcement officials "whatever they need" to combat a recent rise in domestic terrorism perpetrated by white nationalists. But what's needed to fight the type of violent hatred that resulted in 22 deaths this weekend in El Paso, Texas, isn't as easy to procure as the president's blanket statement might suggest. Since the 2001 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, the federal government has devoted sweeping resources and vast sums of money to fighting Islamic terrorism. The Patriot Act, passed under George W. Bush, gives federal agents the legal authority to wiretap or go undercover online to search for radical Islamists, but the same resources and legal rights have not been allocated to fight extreme white nationalism. The number of people killed in attacks because of the far-right and because of Islamist radicals since 2002 is nearly equal—109 to 104—according to data from New America , a think tank. The issue of gun control is … [Read more...] about Will Politicians Let Counterterrorism Experts Monitor White Nationalists?
Whoopi Goldberg has criticized Jared Kushner for his recent remarks about Black Americans and success. The actor and co-host of ABC's The View addressed the controversial remarks from President Donald Trump 's son-in-law on Tuesday. Kushner, who is also a senior White House adviser, garnered criticism for his comments about Black Americans on Fox News on Monday morning. Goldberg told The View 's audience what she wanted to tell Kushner. The quote "Here's what is wrong for me," Goldberg said . "If you want people to stop bitching about stuff, then do something about it. You want people to stop saying 'Hey, stop shooting us,' then stop shooting us! "You want to understand what's going on in the Black community, ask the white folks that are marching with all these Black Lives Matter kids, 'cause they're saying, 'We get it, why don't you?'" "When you talk about what you're going to do for the Black community, don't tell me you're going to pass this law or that law, … [Read more...] about Whoopi Goldberg Tells Kushner to Talk to the White Folks Who March with BLM
An attorney for the law firm who represents the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint pulled back the curtain on the Ukraine scandal called the disclosure of the client's identity Wednesday "disgusting and reckless." Bradley Moss, an attorney specializing in national security and whistleblower law who works for Mark S. Zaid, the firm that represents the whistleblower, told Newsweek in a statement: "These despicable efforts by the president's family and allies to smear an individual who may or may not be the whistleblower is disgusting and reckless. It puts the individual in danger, no matter if he is the whistleblower or not, and is an insult to the federal whistleblower law." Moss had earlier stated he was unaware of the person's name and is not directly involved in the case. He declined to "confirm or deny the accuracy of the speculation tweeted out by the president's son." Newsweek has not verified the identity of the whistleblower. For weeks, President Donald Trump … [Read more...] about Whistleblower’s Law Firm Rebukes Trump Jr for Speculating Name
U.S. President Joe Biden announced he is launching new measures to try to combat wildfires across the West Coast, blaming climate change for the danger and record-breaking heat wave the states along the Pacific are facing. "Right now we have to act and act fast," Biden said at the White House during a meeting with governors from western states on Wednesday. "We're late in the game here." Biden is pitching a trillion-dollar infrastructure package—scaled back from his initial $2 trillion proposal—pulling out some parts that aren't viewed as traditional infrastructure efforts. Progressive Democrats have been pushing for money to address the climate crisis to be increased. "Climate change is driving the dangerous confluence of extreme heat and prolonged drought," the president said during the meeting. "We're seeing wildfires of greater intensity that move with more speed and last well beyond traditional months, traditional months of the fire season." Oregon Governor Kate Brown … [Read more...] about Biden Blames Climate Change for West Coast Wildfire Threat, Vows to Combat
President Donald Trump may meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for the second time on Friday at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam—or at least Moscow thinks so. Washington, on the other hand, has been coy about announcing whether it's an official meeting, only being willing to suggest a "pull-aside"—diplomatic parlance for an unofficial rendezvous between two leaders at an event they are both attending. Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov told state news that a meeting on November 10 was agreed and that all but the exact time remained to be discussed. But this was news to many, including U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who played down the reports later that day. "I mean, clearly the leaders are going to be at the summit together," Tillerson said in a press briefing during a trip to China with the president. "It wouldn't be at all unusual if they ended up with some kind of a pull-aside. The question is whether we've got sufficient substance." … [Read more...] about Will Donald Trump Snub Vladimir Putin?
Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's suspected Russia ties won't be ending any time soon—it's reportedly set to drag on for another year or longer. People familiar with the investigation say the Mueller team's work "could last at least another year," according to The Washington Post , in spite of the president's pressure for the probe to end. The White House legal team is expected to meet with Mueller's office later this week and ask if there's anything else the special counsel needs from them. Mueller's response could escalate the tensions between the two camps. Trump has been attacking the inquiry for months, calling it a baseless and partisan "witch hunt" intent on destroying his presidency. His anger has led to running speculation about Mueller getting fired, though Trump said this week that he's not planning on it. Trump's lawyers repeatedly assured him that the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election would end by … [Read more...] about Mueller’s Trump-Russia Probe Could Last Another Year
