    THE Pink Stuff already stands as a staple in cleaning cupboards of many households.  Side by side with a Scrub Daddy it seems there is nothing the pair cannot clean.  3Kierstyn shared a video showing how she was able to deep clean her bathroomCredit: TikTok/@kierstynrochelle 3Kierstyn used the Pink Stuff and a Scrub DaddyCredit: TikTok/@kierstynrochelle But one woman online has pushed the cleaning star duo to the limit.  Kierstyn Rochelle shared a very grimey bathroom in a video online.  She was amazed at how effective the Pink Stuff was in removing the grime all over her bathtub and shower.  She said: “Do not come for my shower.

    The independent filmmaking industry deserves a chance to shine and get away from that stormfront of mostly bad-box office news. That opportunity arrives Jan. 20-Jan. 29 at the Sundance Film Festival, the annual jewel of the indie film world, which per usual offers a robust showcase for some of the best features the world has to offer.

    ANTIOCH, Calif. —  Michael Tubbs writes in his notebook and stars a word in black pen for importance: “agony.” It’s impossible to wholly describe what he has learned about Californians living in poverty during his tour across the state, but that word seems to wrap it up. The former mayor of Stockton, now the “economic mobility and opportunity” advisor to Gov. Gavin Newsom, has carried a gray notebook to 10 counties — and plans to visit the remaining 48 — as part of his work for his new nonprofit, End Poverty in California. His mission: to listen to Californians describe their struggles, defeats and hopes and actually hear them — to end poverty “by elevating the voices of people experiencing it.” Tubbs, 32, is revered as a national expert on guaranteed income programs for the poor. Raised by a single mother, he grew up in a low-income household in Stockton, once the largest U.S. city to declare bankruptcy, a place often judged for high crime and low literacy rates. So what does he have to learn about...
    When you spend lots of time with a friend, do you find your accent starts to change?  If so, you're not alone, as a new study has revealed that people start talking like each other when they carry out tasks together. Researchers from universities in Pennsylvania carried out a study to investigate 'phonetic convergence' - a phenomenon that occurs when people start imitating the pronunciation of vowel sounds when speaking to someone with a different accent. Their findings suggest that the more engaging a task is, the higher the rate of phonetic convergence.   When you spend lots of time with a friend, do you find your accent starts to change?

    David Archuleta has been out on the road with his 'The More The Merrier Christmas Tour' just over two weeks ago. And while sounding humbled and grateful for the fans attending the holiday shows, the American Idol alum took to Instagram Wednesday to reveal that dozens of people walked out during a break in his concert in Delta, Utah after he spoke about his queer identity. It appears the singer decided to share a lengthy message to his fans on social media after receiving an email after that particular show — seemingly from a venue employee or manager — who praised Archuleta's performance before sharing their disappointment in his decision to talk about his sexuality on stage. David Archuleta, 31, revealed dozens of people left his Christmas show in Delta, Utah on November 29 after he talked about his queer identity That person behind the email began by calling the show 'incredible' while crediting Archuleta for taking the 'crowd on a magical Christmas journey.'

    Van Jones and Don Lemon were equally shocked over an energetic and breathless defense of Republican Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), with Lemon saying he was shocked to not see the Republican senator break into tears. On CNN This Morning, a clip of Graham was played where the Republican claimed that Walker’s critics are trying to take him down in an effort discourage other Black conservatives. “They’re trying to destroy Herschel Walker to deter young men and women of color from being Republicans. If they destroy Herschel it will want to stop people of color from being a conservative Republican, because it destroys your life,” Graham said, adding Walker is a “nightmare” for liberals who has been “treated like crap.” Jones took a moment to soak in Graham’s words, eventually saying, “Well, first of all, he’s a nightmare to the children that he has abandoned and done nothing for. He’s a nightmare to his own son, who came out and said he lies all the time and shouldn’t be in office. He’s a nightmare.” Jones...
    Mark Finchem, who has falsely claimed Trump won the 2020 presidential election, campaigns at an event in Tucson on November 6, 2022.Christopher Brown/Zumapress Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.The Republicans running for statewide office in Arizona, each among the most extreme in the country, earned endorsements from former President Donald Trump by peddling the lie that the 2020 election was stolen. But as three of these candidates campaigned in Tucson, Arizona on Sunday, they did not mention the 2020 election. Even Trump, who is about to launch his presidential campaign for 2024, didn’t come up. The stolen election conspiracies that carried these GOP candidates through the primaries seemed to have disappeared with the general election just days away. Speaking at an office park to approximately 40 volunteers and activists on Sunday morning, GOP nominees Blake Masters for senate, Mark Finchem for secretary of state, and Abe Hamadeh for attorney general focused their criticism, instead, on the media. “The media claimed that they are guardians of democracy,” Hamadeh said, making...

Amid a flurry of Instagram posts, Ye posted a photo of Walker with the caption: “PRO LIFE.” Walker is running on a pro-life platform, but he’s been embroiled in controversy recently after a report claimed he paid for an abortion for a former lover. Walker has called the accusations a lie. “What I’m saying and this is a lie and I’ve said it once and I’ve moved on in my campaign and moved on because we’re worried about what the Georgia people are talking about.

    Fox News anchor Bret Baier pressed GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, Herschel Walker, on new allegations he urged a second woman to have an abortion during an interview on Wednesday. Baier noted that this second allegation was presented by lawyer Gloria Allred who “came forward with this client.” Walker made headlines earlier in the month after a former girlfriend said Walker paid for an abortion and later revealed she had a child with the GOP candidate running on a strictly anti-abortion platform. “You’re saying you don’t know this person?” Baier asked. “What I’m saying and this is a lie and I’ve said it once and I’ve moved on in my campaign and moved on because we’re worried about what the Georgia people are talking about. They’re talking about this inflation. They’re talking about crime. They’re talking about men in women’s sports. They’re talking about this border,” Walker replied, adding: And right now, after the terrible showing that, Senator Warnock did at the debate they are desperate right now. And I’ve said this is a lie, I’ve moved...
    Dear Amy: I am the stepmom to two young adults. My husband recently learned that his son and the son’s girlfriend of three years are only using condoms for birth control. This upset my husband. He’d assumed that his son’s girlfriend used some form of birth control as well. Neither of them wants to have children, and we live in a state where trigger laws went into effect after the Dobbs decision. My husband is worried that this young couple is going to end up with an unwanted pregnancy. My husband talked with his son about it, and his son (rightly) told him it made him uncomfortable and asked him to drop the subject. I agreed with this. Apparently, my husband brought it up again (maybe two more times). I wasn’t there. Related Articles Advice | Ask Amy: Would it be weird if I sent my new neighbors this note?

    CATS know when owners are talking to them, a study reveals — but do not listen to strangers. The pets were found to become active and excited by their owner’s “cat voice”, which may be similar to baby talk. 1Cats know when you're talking to them - but they don't listen to strangers But they did not stir when a stranger said their name. Nor did they respond when their owners talked to other people in normal voices. It suggests cats cannot ­recognise words they hear in an unfamiliar voice or spoken in an unfamiliar tone. Researcher Charlotte de Mouzon said: “Our results highlight the importance of one-to-one relationships for cats. "They do not seem to generalise the communication developed with one human to all humans.” Cats are the most ­popular pets in Britain, with 11 million pets across the country and at least one in a quarter of homes. Ms de Mouzon, from Paris Nanterre University, studied 16 cats’ reactions to different people talking. She found people changed their speech depending on whether it was directed at people...
    Getty Stassi Schroeder gave an update on her relationship with Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. Stassi Schroeder spoke out about the current status of her relationship with her former  “Vanderpump Rules” co-stars, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. The three reality stars all exited the Bravo reality show in 2020, but off-camera they maintained a friendship – at least until recently. In May 2022, Taylor and Cartwright canceled plans to go to Schroeder’s wedding in Italy at the last minute, which caused a rift between the former co-stars. At the time, Page Six reported that Schroeder found out that Taylor had sent “rage texts” to mutual friends complaining about attending her formal wedding, which took place nearly two years after she tied the knot with Beau Clark in a simple backyard ceremony during the Covid pandemic. According to Us Weekly, on her podcast with Clark, Schroeder vented about the situation. “To our faces, they are telling us that they are coming, but behind our back, [Jax] is texting beau’s best friend that they’re not,” she said. “Good friends don’t...

    Rapper Kanye West spoke with Tucker Carlson for an interview that ran on Fox News Thursday night in which the celebrity took a shot at his famous ex-wife and claimed there are forces around him working to silence him. At one point, Kanye discussed his father, who he said his mother took him away from. Kanye said his mother was “an actress, so she was a liberal and my dad would see certain things and say, you know, we should do it this way. We should do it that way. And the people got around my mom and pulled her away.” He added, “Much like, you know, Kim is a Christian, but she has people who want her to go to Interview Magazine and put her ass out while she’s a 40-something-year-old multi-billionaire with four black children.” “And this is what, how fashion wants to, how they want to present her,” he concluded of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Kanye also claimed, “So many things are put in Kim’s head.” He later explained that “influencers” “have people that are around them...
    Tucker Carlson lashed out at liberal commentators on Thursday over what he said was “unseemly and anti-human” behavior on the part of liberal pundits. Some talking heads and scientists have stated that Hurricane Ian – or just extreme weather more generally – can be attributed to climate change. Ian has devastated much of Florida the past two days, causing an unknown amount of deaths and untold structural damage. “So, when something this awful happens, something that affects the lives of millions of your fellow Americans, decent people step back for a moment,” Carlson began his monologue. “It’s a moment that demands reverence and silence to consider what we’ve just seen. Then the practical questions. People are suffering. How are they suffering?” He went on to say the most relevant questions are about whether Floridians have power or whether their homes have been destroyed. “You ask questions like that and you try to assess what this means and the human cost of it,” he continued. “The one thing you don’t do is immediately jump forward to score some sort of cheap...

    Live from Music Row Friday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – guest host Aaron Gulbransen discussed the demonization of American conservatives and religious freedoms by the Biden administration.

Let’s see, how about this one? Human trafficking. All of these things result in basically millions of deaths, injuries, that sort of thing. But of course, when they talk about white supremacy, they’re talking about Republicans, they’re talking about conservatives, they’re talking about people of faith, they’re talking about the MAGA movement and all that sort of thing. And they’re trying to demonize anybody who would dare vote Republican in...
    Fox News’s top-rated show The Five debated the merits of Democrats boosting MAGA candidates in the midterms with the hope of winning in the general election – a discussion that ended with Greg Gutfeld praising Arizona’s Kari Lake. The conversation began with Judge Jeanine Pirro asking liberal co-host Jessica Tarlov to weigh in on the MAGA extremism conversation. “And you know, Jessica, the majority of Americans who listened to Biden’s speech where it was the anti-MAGA speech, they found it, 60 percent, found it to be divisive,” Pirro began. “That along with this kind of perplexing, they’re promoting the right wing MAGA, that the anti-democratic candidates, you know, people have to wonder in the Democrat Party what they really are doing,” Pirro added. “We certainly know what Joe Biden was doing, and he was clarifying that there is a subset of the Republican Party and it’s just a piece of it. It’s certainly not the totality that doesn’t believe in the institutions that we believe in, that doesn’t adhere to democratic norms, that doesn’t accept reality,” Tarlov responded. “What institutions...

    Queen Elizabeth II is an important cultural mascot in a way that Americans can’t understand, and her death will have more implications for Great Britain and the world than simply who will take over the monarchy. That’s according to Ian Dunt, columnist at the inews newspaper and host of the podcasts Oh God, What Now? and Origin Story, who tells hosts Molly Jong-Fast and Andy Levy on this episode of The New Abnormal political podcast that the country faces multiple crises as it deals with the queen’s passing. “She’s a larger cultural experience than just being the queen,” Dunt says. “It’s very hard talking to Americans about it… it’s just on a national emotional level. It’s quite hard to even begin to comprehend what it will do to us. “It’s about your sense of country and your sense of identity within the country. And of course that is taking place in a country that functionally is completely unable to talk about its emotions, so all of that will be a very strange process. Today you just get this sort of...
    Religion has never been absent from American politics. Presidents Democratic and Republican alike invoke divine calling when they take us to war. The House and Senate have chaplains. We swear in court with our hands on holy books. And in ordinary conversations and public comment alike, many Americans explain their political ideas, at least in part, with religious language—touting legislation or defending voting decisions with snatches of biblical text and chains of logic that begin with God. But the conviction that politics is a secular environment, and religious reasoning an invasive species, is increasingly commonplace. Its roots are in the Enlightenment, but as a rising norm in some quarters of American politics, it’s only a few decades old. In 2006, then-Sen. Barack Obama decried “liberals who dismiss religion in the public square as inherently irrational or intolerant,” arguing that “we make a mistake when we fail to acknowledge the power of faith in people’s lives—in the lives of the American people—and I think it’s time that we join a serious debate about how to reconcile faith with our modern,...
    Scott Jennings warned fellow Republicans they are courting disaster by allowing former President Donald Trump to make the party’s politics about the 2020 presidential election. Trump has falsely stated that the election was stolen from him. That claim prompted a mob of his supporters to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 as Congress was certifying the election. On Thursday, Trump claimed he’s “financially supporting” some of those rioters and promised “full pardons” for them if he runs again and is reelected. CNN’s Newsroom aired a clip of Trump’s comments on Thursday. “Let me tell you what a disgrace is,” Jennings began. “A disgrace is if the Republican Party continues to go down this road and make the centerpiece of our argument to the American people re-litigating the 2020 election and saying that somehow January 6th was a good thing. That’s what he’s doing. It’s absolute lunacy. We have got to move on from this because the American people expect us to.” “What ‘if’ are you talking about?” CNN’s Victor Blackwell asked. “If our party goes in this direction? That’s...
    Brian Kilmeade said on Fox Business that Republicans’ abortion policies in some states have made voters uneasy and that this is showing in the polls. Kilmeade appeared on Tuesday’s episode of Kudlow as President Joe Biden was delivering a speech in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania about crime. “I wonder, did he poll this issue?” guest host Sean Duffy asked, before claiming Biden and Democrats “have worked on defunding the police.” “Well, the three things the Democratic Party is polling well in: coronavirus still, which is inexplicable; abortion because they are pro-choice and a lot of the zero tolerance, when it comes to these states has a lot of people freaked out. I think the 15 weeks seems to be – even if you’re the most pro-life person, your neighbor probably isn’t – so how do you govern?” Earlier this year, the Supreme Court overturned 49 years of precedent by ruling there is no constitutional right to abortion. In response, several states have passed laws restricting abortion access. Kilmeade did not mention the third issue and went on to note that Democrats are...
    Williams reinforced his position by pointing to Biden purportedly differentiating between "conservative Republicans" and "MAGA Republicans." Rove, however, did not buy it and rebutted Williams' defense by using Biden's own words from his inaugural presidential address to prove Biden is dividing America — not healing it. "He was not talking about the people who assaulted the Capitol. He was attacking the entire party," Rove corrected "This was not in keeping with what the president promised us." Rove then proceeded to recite Biden's words. "'My whole soul is in it,' he said in his inaugural, 'bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation.' That was after Jan. 6," Rove noted. "'We must see each other not as adversaries but as neighbors. We should treat each other with dignity and respect.' He was not treating his political opponents with dignity and respect." \u201cKarl Rove goes after Joe Biden for calling the MAGA philosophy "semi-fascism": \n\n"He was not talking about people who assaulted the Capitol ... he was attacking the entire party ..."\n\n(Juan Williams *correctly* points out to Rove Biden was not...
    White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain complained Thursday that coverage of the raid on former President Donald Trump’s home is taking up too much airtime He said he would like to see more coverage of issues and how they affect voters. More particularly, Klain would like more coverage of recent White House victories. Klain joined MSNBC’s Alex Wagner Tonight to discuss Democrats’ chances in the upcoming midterm elections. During a lengthy conversation, host Alex Wagner asked him about his thoughts on the Aug. 8 FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago, and what it means for the White House. Wagner noted Trump investigations are seemingly everywhere, before she continued: As you are trying to cut through the noise, how much of a hindrance is it that given the sort of historic nature of these investigations of a former president, and the way in which indeed people seem to be drawn to the sensational scandal of Trump world, is that a problem for the Biden? Klain explained he understands the interest in the issues plaguing Trump, but would like to see other things...
    Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he promised he would never take acid again after he ended up talking to a horse for an hour in a field.

    by Benjamin Yount   Expect a lot of talk about election security ahead of what Wisconsin’s election administrator says could be a record year for voting. Wisconsin Elections Commission administrator Meagan Wolfe on Tuesday answered questions about election integrity, election security, and what she expects for the November election. “What we’re seeing with the unofficial numbers is that we had record turnout. We had the highest turnout for an August primary in 40 years,” Wolfe explained. “I think what that tells us is that we need to plan for additional people for the November election as well.” The unofficial results say that 1.1 million people cast a ballot last week, that means 26% of voters turned out. If that trend holds for November, Wolfe said local election managers will need more ballots, more poll workers, and more of everything. “In a state like ours where we have Election Day registration, you don’t have a set pool of the number of people who are going to show up,” Wolfe said. “So you really have to assume that up to 100%...
    Former President Donald Trump's legal tangles are tripping up President Joe Biden as he embarks on a much-needed political and policy victory lap before November's midterm elections. But with Trump's resurgence in popularity among Republicans after the FBI searched and seized materials this week from his Mar-a-Lago home and office in Florida, the GOP's reaction simultaneously offers Democrats another talking point for the fall fights. BIDEN IS STARTING TO GET THINGS DONE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR NOVEMBER? Republicans, including party strategist Evan Siegfried, acknowledge Biden's successes from "a purely objective legislative standpoint" close to the 2022 midterm election cycle. But he amplified the problem of delayed gratification for voters, particularly with the president's climate and healthcare spending bill's prescription drug pricing provisions. "People still will be voting their pocketbooks," Siegfried told the Washington Examiner. "Unless there can be a drastic change to the cost of living and people see their grocery bills start to fall again, and their gas prices fall, and other things that are tangible that you see at the end of every month in your bank...

    Fox News co-host Todd Piro blasted ESPN NBA analyst Jalen Rose’s call for the name “Mount Rushmore” to be canceled and blamed him for making basketball “un-American.” “He’s part of this Left that likes to tear things down things that are good, and in his sport basketball it was good in the 1980s when you had Magic, Jordan, Bird — and that was America. People were throwing elbows, boxing-out, actually playing defense,” said Piro during Outnumbered on Monday. “Now what they have is this European style that Jalen Rose supports, it’s all European, people just shoot threes. It’s not basketball, it’s un-American.” In a video posted on his Twitter page last week, Rose said: Can we retire using ‘Mount Rushmore?’ That should be offensive to all of us, especially Native Americans, Indigenous people who were the first people here before Christopher Columbus,” said Rose said in video he posted on Twitter. That land was stolen from them when it was discovered that it contained gold. And 25 years later, to add insult to injury, four American presidents were put on...
    IT goes without saying that weddings are fundamentally about two people pledging to share their lives together and celebrating their love with their nearest and dearest. But let's be honest, the focus is almost always going to be on the bride and her show-stopping dress. 1Can YOU spot what's got people talking?Credit: Not known, clear with picture desk So rather than shy away from that fact, this recent newlywed decided to celebrate it instead. Earlier this week, a photo of the happy couple's wedding sign was posted on Reddit's Wedding Shaming forum. "Welcome to Emilie's wedding," the message read in beautiful printed calligraphy. Then underneath the bride's name, a smaller sidenote read: "Featuring Jon." Read More in WeddingsOH SNAP My jealous mate sabotaged my wedding - now I hardly have any pictures of the dayAISLE SAY!

    Mother Jones illustration; Center for Disease Control and Prevention Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.As far as viruses go, monkeypox has proven especially challenging to talk about. First, there’s the name, “monkeypox,” which a growing number of health experts say is misleading and derogatory. Then there’s the stigma around sex: While monkeypox is known to spread through skin-to-skin contact of all kinds, officials suspect the disease is commonly spreading during sex, in part due to reports of sores appearing on patients’ genitals or anus. And then there’s the population most impacted so far: The majority of confirmed cases have been in gay and bisexual men or other men who have sex with men (and a smaller number of trans and non-binary people, some state health department data shows), prompting concerns that monkeypox may be labeled a “gay disease”—which, of course, it is not.  “There are lots of levels of potential stigma. It makes it rather complicated to find the one perfect message.” The hurdles don’t end there. Experts also note...

    Alan Dershowitz wants everyone to know he’s been “blackballed” on Martha’s Vineyard. And the emeritus Harvard law professor apparently will not stop talking about it until all of America has heard his sob story. The longtime attorney and Jeffrey Epstein pal has spent the past few years grumbling about the treatment he’s endured during his regular stays in the exclusive playground of the ultra-wealthy. It started with a 2018 column for The Hill, when he whined at length about the “shunning” he’d received in the Vineyard for defending then-President Donald Trump—painting himself as a true champion of civil liberties. “But one good thing is that being shunned by some ‘old friends’ on Martha’s Vineyard has taught me who my real friends are and who my fairweather friends were,” he wrote. “From a personal point of view, I could not care less about being shunned by people whose views regarding dialogue I do not respect.” Despite widespread mockery for that column, Dersh has continued to portray himself as a victim of “cancel culture” at the hands his elite neighbors. In fact,...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has positioned himself as a culture warrior ahead of a possible White House bid, and an expert on the state's politics says his success is making Donald Trump nervous as he considers his own campaign. NBC News national political correspondent Marc Caputo told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that Trump is anxious about the support DeSantis has picked up by raging against classroom lessons on "critical race theory" and LGBTQ inclusion, and the governor is now seen as the most viable GOP contender to the former president. "I think it is beyond a shadow of a doubt that Ron DeSantis is living rent-free in between Donald Trump's ears, it's not the other way around," Caputo said. "When you talk to people who talk to Trump, he frequently talks about DeSantis, not necessarily in a completely negative way, but he is looking at him the same way, like, Julius Caesar looked at Cassius in Shakespeare's play. He is a potential threat." That threat, as well as the looming threat of criminal charges in various investigations, is pushing Trump to...
    (CNN)My teen daughter had a simple question for me following the repeal of Roe v. Wade. "What does this mean for women right now?" I was sitting at our kitchen table, still processing my own shock. It was a question I didn't want to have to answer for her. What followed -- and she knew she was asking her therapist mom -- was a detailed conversation about bodily autonomy, consent, and comprehensive healthcare. She needed information to process what she'd seen, because Instagram Stories (where she first learned about the decision) don't necessarily tell the whole story. She asked one follow-up question: "How can I help?"Roe v. Wade outrage highlights growing rift between the American people and their highest courtRead MoreChildren and teens tend to feel stuck when it comes to working through their feelings around complex issues that impact our country.

    (CNN)Joe Biden knows what it's like to be the youngest guy in the room -- he was sworn in as a senator at 30, the minimum age allowed by the Constitution.We all now know what it's like for Biden to be the oldest president in history -- if he stands for reelection in 2024 and wins, he'll be 86 at the end of a second term.The people who wrote the Constitution adopted an age minimum for presidents -- 35 -- but they set no maximum, perhaps not realizing that hundreds of years later, people would be living much longer lives. A defense against dynastiesOne reason the framers agreed on a minimum age for presidents was to avoid American political dynasties, according to the National Constitution Center. Read MoreJames Monroe, the future President who opposed ratification of the Constitution, said that 35 was a good minimum age because, "in the course of nature very few fathers leave a son who has arrived to that age."

    Governor Larry Hogan (R-MD) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he was “not sure” the United States can handle former President Donald Trump being criminally charged for his actions surrounding the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot. Host Chuck Todd said, “Based on what you gleaned from the January 6 committee and what you’ve taken away, do you think he should be charged with a crime?” Hogan said, “I think that is for the Justice Department to decide because I think one thing the American people do want is to take the politics out of it and get to the facts of what happened. I think the committee has done us a service and bringing a lot of people forward that are finally talking, and we have a lot more information than we did but something the Justice Department has to decide.” Todd asked, “Do you think the country can handle prosecuting a former president?” Hogan said, “Yeah, I’m not sure they can, but I think no man is above the law, so if that is where the facts...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America Reports,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) stated that his constituents are talking to him about higher gas prices, higher food prices, and flight cancellations, “those are the issues” that are “front and center.” And “that’s what’s on people’s minds, and we have to make that the priority.” Khanna said, [relevant remarks begin around 4:40] “I don’t understand why we aren’t having a ban on exports, and I think we have to be more aggressive. I called for buying at the dips and then selling it back to the American public at a low price. I realized then that, a few days later, Warren Buffett, he’s buying at the dips. Except, he’s not selling it back to the American public. But I do think we have to be doing more. Look, people in my district, they’re talking to me about gas prices, about higher food prices, they’re talking to me about the airlines getting canceled, I mean, people are not being able to get places. So, those are the issues, front and center....
    (CNN)Last month, the massacre at a supermarket in a Black neighborhood in Buffalo, New York, that left 10 people dead was followed just days later by another massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, in which 21 people -- 19 of whom were young children -- were murdered. This string of violence has many Americans wondering: Can mass murderers be stopped? Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist and a former professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, has been researching this question since the 1980s, when he started examining stalkers who sometimes carried out violent attacks. Meloy published "The Psychopathic Mind," a key text about aggressive behavior, in 1988. After the 9/11 attacks, Meloy expanded his research to examine terrorists who share some characteristics with other kinds of mass murderers and started working with the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. I spoke to Meloy earlier this week. Our conversation was edited for clarity. BERGEN: What are the most ridiculous things people tend to say after a school shooting or a terrorist attack?

    Bette Midler took to Twitter on Monday to clarify a tweet she sent that some people criticized as being transphobic, when it was actually intended to express her view about Roe v. Wade being overturned last month by the Supreme Court. The initial tweet from the 76-year-old singer-actress read: 'WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name!  'They don't call us "women" anymore; they call us "birthing people" or "menstruators", and even "people with vaginas"!
