Trump’s Racism Makes Him Corrosive to Nation

X Story Stream recent articles WASHINGTON — By now it should be clear that racism is a feature of the Trump administration, not a bug. White House chief of staff John Kelly’s hideous rewriting of Civil War history is merely the latest evidence. Can anyone really believe “the lack of an ability to compromise” caused that bloody war? Is it possible to become a four-star Marine Corps general without knowing that the Constitution itself was structured around a compromise on slavery? Or that the first half of the 19th Century saw a series of equally immoral compromises that let slavery continue? How can a man whose son died in service of his country believe that “men … of good faith” is an acceptable description of military officers who committed treaso...

We all just need to stop worrying about Lonzo

Click to expand Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO UP NEXT Video by Fox Sports Lonzo Ball was on national TV on Thursday, and instead of leaving viewers speaking in tongues he stayed rather invisible, insomuch as Lonzo Ball can ever drift outside the spotlight.  He took two shots in 28 minutes, missing both, and had just four assists in a game in which the Lakers scored in the triple digits. Ball created nine of 110 Lakers points, or 8 percent. This is not the Lonzo Ball we were sold. This Lonzo Ball, though, is not the Lonzo Ball we shall receive. Players are not who they are after eight NBA games, especially not at age 20. Lonzo especially will be slower to put up consistent numbers because of the style he plays. He wasn’t a huge scorer in college — under 15 points per game — and does...

Ranking the NFL’s quarterbacks at the halfway mark

The 2017 NFL season at the halfway mark has been anything but predictable, especially when it comes to the quarterback position. Some of the league’s younger quarterbacks are thriving while veteran signal callers are regressing before our eyes. In the surprising category, a second-year quarterback has skillfully led his team to a league-best 7-1 record. Meanwhile, there are still two NFL franchises that have yet to scour up one win. We have also witnessed quarterbacks get benched, traded and injured. The injuries in particular are devastating, leaving some very raw backups to assume starting roles. As the second half of the NFL season gets underway, it is time to check in and see where each team’s quarterback stands in ranking.

Rosie O’Donnell Reveals Why Trump Hates Her with a Passion

Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO (Video provided by NBC) “Do you see I’m a little edgy?” Rosie O’Donnell asked Seth Meyers midway through her interview on Late Night Thursday to promote her role in the new Showtime series SMILF. “I spend like pretty much ninety percent of my waking hours tweeting hatred towards this administration.” “That is a two-way street,” Meyers pointed out, noting that Donald Trump has been targeting O’Donnell for a very long time.
