World Donald Trump Michelle Obama 2020 Presidential Election Former first lady Michelle Obama has revealed her surprise and concern that Donald Trump had the support of 52 percent of white women voters in the 2016 election. During an address to the United State of Women Summit on Saturday, Obama asked the crowd “what is going on in our heads where we let this happen?” “In light of this last election, I’m concerned about us, as women, and what we think about ourselves and about each other,” Obama said. “So I do wonder what our young girls are dreaming about, if we’re still there.” “When the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead, I mean, that says something about where we are, if we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar that we don’t have for men… if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president, compared … [Read more...] about Michelle Obama on Trump’s Election: What Is Going on in Our Heads

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination with a morning speech and a march in Memphis, helpfully captured in a picture on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s Twitter feed. He appeared at an economic justice forum here in Mississippi’s capital, speaking before a crowd that included far more African-Americans than his campaign events typically drew.

Hundreds of millions of downloads, hailed by the New York Times as the left's answer to conservative talk radio: Are you surprised by how quickly the podcast has become a success since it launched, not least an international one? I'm stunned by it on a daily basis. I remember on the last election night when we decided to do it and the decision was part out of guilt over the fact that we hadn’t been involved in the 2016 elections and this calamitous event had happened with Donald Trump getting elected, but also profound frustration that the way we talk about politics in the US is so fundamentally broken.

Washington — President Donald Trump’s administration is moving to overturn stringent gas mileage rules that would have required automakers to produce car fleets that averaged over 50 miles per gallon by 2025, setting up a clash with California over states’ rights.
