It shows Stacey Abrams, at a burning of the state flag in 1992. (Attempts to outlaw flag-burning are fundamentally anti-free-speech, but still, symbols matter, and for many Americans, the American flag is a sign of pride in our country.) But Abrams didn't participate in a burning of the American flag. She didn't even burn the current State of Georgia flag. More than a quarter-century ago, as a college student, Abrams took part in the expressive burning of the former state...
The President has talked up the possibility of a 10% tax cut for middle-income Americans on the campaign trail and in the White House in recent days. When Trump debuted his new talking point, it sent aides on Capitol Hill spinning to figure out what he meant, and in the House it sent them rushing to figure out if they could -- or even need to -- draft something that would address what the President was talking about. On Tuesday,...
On her NBC show on Tuesday morning, host Megyn Kelly chatted about the use of blackface in Halloween costumes — a timely topic. "You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. When we had the roundtable discussion earlier today about the controversy of making your face look like a different race as part of a Halloween costume, I suggested that this...
(WASHINGTON) — The Trump administration has not settled on a plan for what to do if a migrant caravan arrives at the southern border, despite threats by President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency or rescind aid from the countries whose people are journeying north. Top immigration officials and close Trump advisers are still evaluating the options in closed-door meetings that have gotten increasingly heated in the past week, including one that turned into a shouting match as the...
(NEW YORK) — NBC’s Megyn Kelly swiftly apologized Tuesday for a morning show segment that questioned why dressing up in blackface for a Halloween costume is wrong. Following a social media backlash, Kelly wrote in an email to NBC News colleagues that she realized such behavior is wrong, that the history of blackface in culture is abhorrent. "I was born in the same decade as Megyn Kelly and do not recall blackface being acceptable anywhere, anytime," tweeted Alex Wagner of...

NBC News anchor Megyn Kelly issued an apology Tuesday for her comments earlier in the day questioning why it is considered racist for white people to wear blackface on Halloween. In an email sent to colleagues released by NBC News, Kelly said she had taken the time to listen to other points of view on the topic. In the roundtable segment during the 9:00 Hour on "Megyn Kelly TODAY," which dealt with inappropriate or offensive Halloween costumes, Kelly asked her...
Rep. Beto O'Rourke has spent more on Facebook ads than any other candidate this campaign cycle, new data released by the social media company Tuesday shows. Also among the top spenders is the oil company Exxon Mobil, which has spent almost $2 million on ads on Facebook since May. The company has brought in new rules for political ad-buyers in light of the 2016 election campaign, when Russian operatives targeted Americans with political ads. Since May, more than a quarter...
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is betting that his ubiquitous role in the midterm elections — all Trump, all the time — will pay off for Republicans trying to hang onto their perilous majorities in Congress. Trump’s campaign said Tuesday it will spend more than $20 million on the November elections, including $6 million in national TV and digital ads beginning Oct. 29, and the president will be holding at least 10 more of his signature rallies through the...
A restaurant owner in Waterloo, Iowa, refused to book a space for a Republican election night celebration. LeaAnn Saul, the treasurer of the Black Hawk County GOP, attempted to book a space at SingleSpeed for 75 people on the election night but was denied by owner Dave Morgan.
