Twitter users are imagining what could be Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s favorite musicals, following his eventful evening watching “ Hamilton .” The Indiana governor was widely booed on entering the Richard Rogers Theater in New York City on Friday night, and the Broadway show’s cast addressed him with a powerful message as he later left.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder: FBI Director James Comey ‘Violated’ Justice Department Policies
Criticism of FBI Director James Comey ratcheted up dramatically late Sunday as he faced both a rare public rebuke by the former attorney general who once oversaw him and the first call for his resignation by a member of Congress. Comey has been at the center of a political storm since issuing a vaguely worded letter on Friday ― 11 days before the election ― that indicated the FBI was reviewing more emails that could be related to its probe of Hillary Clinton ’s use of a private email server. In an op-ed for The Washington Post, former attorney general Eric Holder charged that Comey’s letter had “violated long-standing Justice Department policies and tradition,” and he called on the FBI director to “ dispel the uncertainty he has created before Election Day.
Thanksgiving at the Baldwin household may be a tad tense this year. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is splitting the famous quartet of actor brothers, and even causing them to come to virtual blows via Twitter
Donald Trump regularly tells his supporters that the election has been rigged against him, and on Monday he accused Hillary Clinton ’s campaign of utilizing a “ voter suppression technique ” that involved manipulating polls. (Politifact rated his claim “pants on fire” false .) But with early voting now underway in several states, the real-world effects of actual (and very consequential) voter suppression have begun to bubble up.
If completed, the $3.8 billion dollar Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) would carry 500,000 barrels of crude oil 1,168-miles southeast from the Bakken shale fields to Illinois.

In a 336-minute, seven-game series, the Golden State Warriors needed less than 170 seconds in the third quarter to dismantle, dishearten and dispose of the Oklahoma City Thunder, doing what they do best and knocking down five treys in three minutes to earn their second consecutive berth in the NBA Finals with a 96-88 victory Monday night. Of course, it started and ended with Stephen Curry.
One heck of a day for the #JamesGang.
A back-and-forth battle in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Finals led to a surprising early-series deficit for the Golden State Warriors. And, for a time Wednesday, it looked as if Game 2 was headed for another photo finish in the Warriors’ showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder. But then, about halfway through the third quarter, Warriors MVP Stephen Curry got a little mad

Miranda says her mother has been obsessed with looking like a stripper since her husband of 26 years confessed that he had been to a strip club on two occasions more than a decade ago. The 19-year-old claims that for the last two years, her mother, Marianne, would rather spend money to transform her appearance than pay for Miranda’s education — and encourages Miranda to wear tight clothes and show off her body. “Ever since my mom found out my dad went to the strip club 15 years ago, she’s made obsessive changes to her body: cutting her hair, dying her hair, getting a large back tattoo, she started drinking, getting plastic surgery,” Miranda says

Now that it appears, thankfully, that former NBA player and Kardashian in-law, Lamar Odom, is going to be okay, we are free to banter about the preposterous serendipity of being found unconscious in, of all places, a licensed whorehouse tucked away on the remote and barren landscape of the Mojave Desert. In addition to emitting a genuine sigh of relief at Odom’s recovery, coupled, admittedly, with a raised eyebrow and roll of the eyes at the whole string of indignities that had to accompany such a circumstance, we are also free to speculate as to who among us would pay the greatest “public relations” price for such notoriety
Under federal law , a Supreme Court justice must recuse from a case when he or his spouse have a “financial interest” in it. Justice Stephen Breyer didn’t know his wife held stock in a company with a stake in a big energy case the court heard on Wednesday, and apparently neither did she. When he learned about it following a reporter’s inquiry, she immediately got rid of it. Late on Thursday, Bloomberg reported Breyer’s wife, Joanna, sold about $33,000 worth of stock in Johnson Controls Inc., a company with a stake in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission v

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq’s prime minister unveiled a bold plan Sunday to abolish three vice presidential posts and the offices of three deputy premiers, hoping to cut spending amid mass protests against his government as the Islamic State group still holds a third of his nation. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s Cabinet backed the plan, which still needs parliamentary approval, but it’s unclear whether it could end the endemic corruption in Iraq’s political system, where many senior appointments are determined by party patronage and sectarian loyalties.
Tired of hearing stories of former players not being able to afford medical care, National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts and the union’s executives are readying a proposal for the league’s player representatives that would pay for retired NBA players’ health care costs. NBPA director of communications Tara Greco confirmed to The Huffington Post that the proposal will be discussed at a July 20 membership meeting but could not comment the likelihood of it being adopted. But league sources have told Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski that the plan is expected to pass through “with ease.” The plan will reportedly cost up to $15 million per year and come out of the gobs of money that the league and players will start to pull in as a result of a highly lucrative television deal beginning in the 2016-17 NBA season.

We’ve heard many explanations (err…excuses) from family and friends who do not wear sunscreen daily. From “I always forget to put it on,” to “I hate the way it makes my face look ashy,” these reasons do not make up for failing to protect skin against harmful UV rays. And when we saw retail manager Kaysy Gotay’s flawless complexion, we knew our priorities were in check.
