    The Twitter account of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) became the center of scrutiny after tweeting a message that failed to comprehend basic legal principles. Following the Federal Bureau of Investigations' (FBI) execution of a search warrant at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, the Twitter account pushed back with a tweet that read, "If they can do it to a former President, imagine what they can do to you." In the tweet, the account discussed the search warrant which HuffPost defines as "a legal process that would involve investigators convincing a federal judge or magistrate that evidence of a crime would likely be found during a search." READ MORE: Jim Jordan accuses Democrats of trying to ‘pack’ the Supreme Court ‘with four left-wing Justices’ Twitter users quickly responded to the tweet with critical remarks. "The fact that the law applies to the president, and not just the rest of us, is a feature of democracy, not a bug," tweeted The Atlantic's Yair Rosenberg. Julia Loffe also tweeted, "Thank you, House Judiciary GOP, for summarizing succinctly the principle...
    Kamala Harris's incoming communications director Jamal Simmons spent the first day after his hiring was revealed on cleanup duty for one of his past tweets, as he prepares to try to right the VP's PR shop. Simmons made a name for himself as a Democratic political analyst and operative with stints going back to the Bill Clinton administration. News of his hiring brought to light some of his more controversial tweets and statements – including one on the red hot issue of immigration. 'Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC. One Law student the other a protester. Can someone explain why ICE is not picking them up?' he tweeted back in 2010 – amid one of many heated debates over U.S. immigration policy. President Biden has charged Harris with focusing on the root causes of immigration, forcing her to already contend with political headaches over border crossings.  Chiming in on the issue was former White House aide Stephen Miller, an architect of the Trump Administration's controversial immigration policies. 'I agree with @jamalsimmons. If you break into our nation there...
    John Lamparski/Getty Jamal Simmons, Vice President Kamala Harris’ new communications director, issued an apology on Friday after controversial tweets resurfaced in which he asked why federal immigration authorities were not arresting undocumented workers who were being interviewed on MSNBC. In the 2010 tweet, Simmons wrote, “Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC. One Law student the other a protester. Can someone explain why ICE is not picking them up?” He later doubled down saying, “I’ll try this again: Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC and have a serious legal question. Why wouldn’t ICE pick them up?” After the tweets started circulating online and were picked up, along with other unflattering tweets, by Fox News, Simmons released a statement to Politico’s Alex Thompson: “As a pundit for much of my career I have tweeted a lot and spoken out on public issues. Sometimes I have been sarcastic, unclear, or just plainly missed the mark. I sincerely apologize for offending those who care as much as I do about making America the best, multi-ethnic, diverse democracy it can be....

    CNN made changes to their polling methodology after their 2020 polls “missed the mark,” the network announced Friday. The network said that they made the changes to account for political differences between groups who do and do not respond to polls, which they say was likely the cause of polling errors in 2020. The 2020 polls failed to accurately assess support for Republican candidates across the board, CNN reported. “Assessments of what went wrong suggest that the problem derived from differential non-response – that is, that the people who took surveys were not the same politically as those who did not,” CNN Polling Director Jennifer Agiesta wrote. Friday’s poll assessing President Joe Biden’s approval rating was the first poll released that was generated using the new methodology. It found that 52% of Americans approved of Biden’s performance and 48% did not – an approval rating that is much higher than other recent polls have found.

                        A Target store in St. Paul came under fire for their Juneteenth display in their employee break room which had hot sauce, red Kool-Aid, and watermelon. Someone, presumably an employee, shared photos of the display on social media, leading to public backlash. One of the public comments called “every single Target employee who thought that the display represented Juneteenth,” racist. According to a TikTok video, it “displayed stereotypes” of Black people. Many called for Target to do better on social media. One of the social media posts shared in the video said, “To start off, red Kool-Aid to symbolize the blood of those murdered from hate crimes and police brutality.” Hey @Target, this you? pic.twitter.com/tJoVqJFCoz — Fifty Shades of Whey (@davenewworld_2) June 24, 2021 A human resources manager at the Target store in St. Paul set up the display, but it was removed after workers said it was offensive. The official statement from Target read that, “One of our team members created this display to try and...
    President Joe Biden might have hit his 100-day goal of reopening the majority of K-8 schools for in-person learning, but there are still a lot of unmet challenges facing the new administration. They include reopening high schools, smoothing out tensions with the teachers unions, as well as repairing racial and economic disparities that revealed themselves during the coronavirus shutdowns. To be sure, the pandemic has changed education in the United States forever. It cast a critical light on school financing, the ability of students, teachers, and parents to adapt to a new scholastic landscape, and gave teachers more power than they'd had in a generation. On the campaign trail, Biden made education one of his top priorities and pledged significant changes during his first 100 days in office. His goal of reopening most schools wasn't that much of a feat, given his administration initially said he was only talking about Kindergarten through eighth-grade classrooms and that "most" really meant 51%. Even before Biden took office, the country had almost hit the 51% mark. Since then, school districts have slowly inched...

    The pollsters and pundits got the 2020 presidential race wrong yet again, Kellyanne Conway, former Trump 2016 campaign manager, told "Fox & Friends." "This is a rebuke of the elites and the establishment, telling people how to think, what to do, and what your value is as a human being based on your vote," the former Republican pollster said. "But wishful thinking doesn't win. The people spoke again. Let's see what happens." Conway, the first woman to successfully manage a U.S. presidential campaign, slammed the mainstream media for again failing to predict the election after they were shocked by Trump's victory in 2016. Video"Instead, all these phony, national polls were shoved down our throats," she said. "There was no blue wave. There was no early night. There was no Democratic progressive realignment."

    The View's hosts collectively gave the controversial Netflix film Cuties a negative review. Meghan McCain, Sara Haines, and Sunny Hostin all expressed discontent on Wednesday with the movie that follows an 11-year-old Amy, a girl of Senegalese origin living in a poor neighborhood in France, who joins a dance group at school. Critics of the French film have accused it of hypersexualizing prepubescent girls, but director Maimouna Doucoure argues that the point of the movie is to start a conversation about the real-world issue. Haines and Hostin both watched the movie, but Hostin said she turned it off because she "didn't enjoy it." Haines said, "When you talk about what the director said, I appreciate her intent and attempt at doing what she did, which was to showcase how we sexualize young girls. As a mom and a viewer, I think she missed the mark and ended up sexualizing the girls, but that, I don’t think, that was her intention, and I don’t think she should be castigated for that, and there were critics at Sundance Film Festival that...
    Paul Rudd plays the guitar in a mask PSA. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo/YouTube Paul Rudd recently starred in a PSA that was posted on Governor Cuomo's social media accounts reminding viewers to wear masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus. In the PSA, Rudd pretends to be a "young person," throwing around and deliberately butchering slang. Much of the slang that Rudd uses to pretend to be a "young person" is actually Black slang, demonstrating a tendency for Black culture to be appropriated and redefined as "internet culture." The advertisement paradoxically targets millennials while seemingly spoofing Gen Z teens, playing out as a tired iteration of the "hello fellow kids" meme. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Paul Rudd starred in a recent PSA that was released on Governor Andrew Cuomo's social channels. Explicitly targeted towards millennials, Rudd cosplays as a fellow "young person," throwing around slang in what's theoretically a humorous bid to convince fellow "young people" to wear masks to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. "Paul Rudd here, actor and certified young person,"...
    Reuters July 15, 2020 0 Comments The Paycheck Protection Program appears to have thrown a critical safety net under U.S. middle and upper-middle-wage jobs, but it faltered when it comes to lower-paying positions and the industries hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Reuters analysis of loan details. Analysis of data on nearly 4.9 million PPP loans released last week by the Trump administration showed the program, a subject of controversy because a number of larger well-connected borrowers tapped it even though it was designed to aid vulnerable small businesses, did partially hit its target. Separating U.S. industries into groups of around 60 each ranked by average annual pay, the Reuters analysis showed that employers in the middle of the wage scale received an outsized share of PPP loans both in dollar terms and the number of loans disbursed. The middle group includes a diverse set of industries such as automobile dealers, building electrical and heating installers, and freight trucking companies, representing around 16.5% of the U.S. workforce and a similar share of establishments. The group received...
    (CNN Business)Happy Friday, readers. Today we celebrate Juneteenth, wish a happy early Father's Day to all the dads, and send a big congratulations to Malala Yousafzai, who just gradated from Oxford. Here's what went down in the world of business today.SNAPCHAT'S JUNETEENTH BLUNDERSome companies appropriately marked Juneteenth — the holiday marking the end of slavery in America — by giving their staff the day off or expressing solidarity with anti-racism efforts. And then there's Snapchat, which marked the day with a face filter that managed to offend pretty much everyone. The filter prompted users to smile in order to break chains, all against a backdrop of a Pan-African flag. The company issued an apology Friday. Read MoreLet's not forget some of Snap's previous goofs, like the time in 2016 when it released a Bob Marley lens, which darkened users' skin color and added dreadlocks, prompting accusations of blackface. The same year, it rolled out a filter with squinting eyes that was called out as "yellowface."BEN & JERRY'S JUNETEENTH WINBen & Jerry's, meanwhile, put out an unequivocal statement in support of...
    Drew Brees has apologized Thursday after receiving backlash for comments he made about not backing potential NFL player protests during the national anthem. New Orleans quarterback said in an Instagram post that his "comments were insensitive and completely missed the mark."  After criticism from fans and other athletes on social media, Brees expressed remorse over his remarks.  "In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, and solidarity centered around the American flag and the national anthem, I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country," he said. "They lacked awareness and any type of compassion or empathy. Instead, those words have become divisive and hurtful and have misled people into believing that somehow I am an enemy. This could not be further from the truth, and is not an accurate reflection of my heart or my character." View this post on Instagram I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my...
