This Is What The Climate March Looked Like Across The Country

President Donald Trump may not think that climate change should be a priority for the country, but the Climate March protests proved that the American people won’t stand for it. Hundreds of thousands of environmentalists swarmed the streets of the U.S.’s largest cities on Saturday, urging the White House to take climate change seriously. Protestors at the Climate March, which was held on President Trump’s 100th day in office, denounced the Trump administration for signing executive orders that slashed policies that flight climate change, all in the name of a coal-focused “energy revolution.”While the main march took place in Washington D.C. and in front of the White House, hundreds of sister marches were held across the country in a show of solidarity.

Kansas City Jimmy John's worker speaks out after intense armed robbery

Security footage of a gun point robbery at a Kansas City Jimmy John's has gone viral with millions of views. The employee stands completely calm with a gun in his face while everyone was wondering, what was going through his mind? Then he put it in my face, and told me to open the (bleep) drawer. He added that he had considered violating his parole so he could complete his sentence, saying that parole conditions were hard to follow. After Kansas City police tweeted Friday morning that the suspect was in custody, Jimmy John's responded with their well known slogan saying: "Wow freaky fast capture, KC police are rockstars!"

Trump Invites Rodrigo Duterte to the White House

PhotoWASHINGTON — President Trump on Saturday invited the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, to the White House, embracing an authoritarian leader who is accused of ordering extrajudicial killings of drug suspects and who crudely disparaged Mr. Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama. Mr. Trump had a “very friendly conversation with Mr. Duterte,” according to a statement issued by the White House late Saturday. Human rights groups and many Western governments have condemned Mr. Duterte for the bloody campaign. A spokesman for Mr. Duterte, Ernesto Abella, confirmed the White House invitation, saying that Mr. Trump had expressed “his understanding and appreciation of the challenges facing the Philippine president, especially on the matter” of drugs. An outspoken populist with a shoot-from-the-hip style, Mr. Duterte shares some characteristics with Mr. Trump.

Samantha Bee Compares CNN To A 'S**tty Boyfriend'

Samantha Bee issued a scathing critique of CNN Saturday during her TBS special, “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner.”Bee aired clips of CNN’s on-air personalities, from the left-leaning Van Jones to the Trump-supportin g Jeffrey Lord, clashing in political debates. In some of the clips, the fights became so heated that it was difficult to hear what anyone was actually saying. Then, she aired a clip of CNN President Jeff Zucker discussing the network’s punditry, saying, “You can call it entertainment. “CNN gives you news like your shitty boyfriend gives your orgasms. Either way, you wind up lying in the wet spot and he’s snoring.”Instead of keeping the journalists in the studio to argue, Bee suggested Zucker let them go out and report the news.

Los Angeles shooting spree: At least 1 killed, 3 hurt as police hunt suspects

Authorities in Southern California were searching for a Hispanic male and female accused of stealing a woman’s SUV on Saturday and then going on a shooting rampage, killing one and injuring three. "It doesn't appear they were target-specific or gang related," Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Ryan Rouzan said, adding that the investigation is ongoing. The rampage began at around 2:15 p.m. when one person forced a woman from her Nissan Pathfinder in Pico Rivera, a community southeast of downtown Los Angeles. It's unclear what the shooting victims were doing when they were shot, something Rouzan said would be revealed in the ongoing investigation. The woman's condition was unknown, but Rouzan said she had not been shot.

Gergen: Trump speech was 'most divisive'

Washington (CNN) Political analyst David Gergen delivered a harsh critique of President Trump's campaign-style rally Saturday night in an appearance on CNN's "Newsroom." "To bring your campaign speech into the presidency is something presidents rarely do," said Gergen, who has been a White House adviser to four presidents. "This was the most divisive speech I've ever heard from a sitting American president." The nearly-hour long speech began with attacks on the press and covered his tax plan, jobs, the yet-to-be-built wall, trade and other topics Trump had touted throughout his 2016 campaign. "I think it was a deeply disturbing speech."

CNN panelists clash over Trump speech

(CNN) Sparks flew Saturday evening on a CNN "Newsroom" panel as contributors clashed over President Trump's accomplishments in the first 100 days and over remarks he had just delivered at a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The sharp exchange began when Democratic strategist Paul Begala unleashed a withering attack on the President, calling him both a "moral midget" and "needy little baby." Democratic strategist @PaulBegala: Trump is a "moral midget ... a deeply insecure person" and a "needy little baby" https://t.co/bAQLCIzY8u — CNN Newsroom (@CNNnewsroom) April 30, 2017Moments later, Republican strategist Paris Dennard took issue with Begala's remarks, offering criticism of the media class's overall treatment of Trump. I did not like probably 98 percent to 99 percent of the things President Obama did, but I would never call him 'Obama' and I would never call him a 'moral midget' or a 'needy little baby,'" he said. Dennard added, "We owe this President a little more respect in how we talk about him."

The Corrosive Consequences of the Politics of Tax Cuts

A quick look at the Associated Press's list of per capita federal taxes paid by states tells the story. Right at the top of the GOP tax reform agenda--and reflected in the Trump tax plan as well--is eliminating the federal deductibility of state and local taxes. For decades now--as documented by the conservative Tax Foundation--more productive blue states have seen their money flow to less productive red states. Yet somehow those red state Republicans get away with saying--as we now hear in the tax reform discussions on Capitol Hill--that the deductibility of state and local taxes represents a subsidy by the low tax to the high tax states. Yet, blue state Democrats look at the same circumstances and see a very different picture.
