President Obama is trying to make terrorism into guns – it’s not guns … it’s terrorism.
Donald Trump, speaking in Houston on Friday night about the Orlando nightclub shooting. He's attacked both Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, and Obama on the issue of gun laws since last weekend's shooting.
Donald Trump stood fuming in the back of the hearing room on Capitol Hill for two hours, impatiently scribbling notes. Staffers had refused to move up his testimony, and no one would give up a seat for the casino mogul.
When he finally sat down at the witness table that fall afternoon two decades ago, he crumpled and trashed his “long and probably very boring speech,” which he called “politically correct.” He then unloaded a tirade — about Native Americans, casinos and the mob.
“When I have to sit here and listen to people saying that everything is just peachy-dory, it is not, folks. It is going to blow,” Trump warned. There was no way, he said, that “an Indian chief is going to tell ‘Joey Killer’ to please get off his reservation.”

We stand united against and will fight together against politicians who disguise their own lack of vision by manipulating racial and economic fears and who prioritize corporate interests and right-wing extremism over basic protections for all Americans.
An open-letter signed by liberal groups, such as Service Employees International Union and Friends of the Earth, which backed Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders respectively. Sanders has yet to formally endorse Clinton, the presumptive GOP nominee.
Donald Trump is already remaking the Republican Party. Now he wants to shake up the GOP summer convention.
Trump is considering setting aside one night during the gathering in Cleveland not for politicians, but for “winners” — the sports and entertainment figures who have endorsed his campaign — he said.
NASCAR’s Richard Petty, UFC fighter Dana White, former Indiana Coach Bobby Knight and others would be so much better than “everyone falling asleep” listening to politicians, Trump told supporters during a rally Thursday night at Gilley’s in Dallas.
Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign ended with what had become his standard pitch in recent months as his odds of defeating Hillary Clinton dimmed: a long list of demands for the Democratic Party, a host of thinly veiled insults against party leaders and no recognition for the woman who outdistanced him in the popular vote and delegates en route to clinching the presidential nomination.
Sanders never mentioned Clinton’s historic accomplishment except by inference when he said that his campaign henceforth would be about “defeating Donald Trump.” He never actually said that Clinton had defeated him, or even that he was bowing out of the race, despite the fact that there are no more primaries to contest.
The absence of typical political grace by the defeated candidate was reminiscent of another insurgent inveighing against the establishment: Democrat Jerry Brown never got around to endorsing Bill Clinton in 1992 after the future president became his party’s nominee.
