Caitlyn Jenner Opens Up To Diane Sawyer About Her Life 2 Years After Coming Out

That’s the message she had for Diane Sawyer ― and the millions of people who tuned in for her second in-depth interview on ABC’s “20/20” to celebrate the anniversary of coming out as transgender in April 2015. “I’ve grown into Caitlyn,” she told Sawyer on Friday night. “I had a guy actually ... ask for a selfie and said, ‘Oh Bruce, could you give me a selfie?’ And I looked at him. Nobody’s called me that in two years almost now, and I said, ‘No problem,’” Jenner, who claims she takes 20 to 40 selfies a day with strangers, told Sawyer. “But for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.”

Historians say a president’s first 100 days is a useless benchmark

“Productivity in the first 100 days rarely says anything about the occupant of the White House,” Schaff said. For the most part, the first 100 days of presidencies after Roosevelt have become less and less productive, experts say. He made that clear in his inaugural address: “All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. President Trump repeatedly emphasized the importance of the first 100 days of his potential presidency while on the campaign trail.

Trumps' Tax Reform Plans To Depend Upon An Untruth - That Tax Cuts Pay For Themselves

It's just that it's not generally true in something like today's American economy that broad tax cuts will generate enough economic growth to entirely pay for themselves. He would not provide details of the plan, saying only that the tax cuts will be "bigger I believe than any tax cut ever." Mnuchin on Thursday said economic growth from proposed tax cuts would come close to $2 trillion over 10 years. But what is generally agreed among economists is that general tax cuts, from the US starting point of today, won't produce enough extra growth for the cuts to pay for themselves. Of income taxes and the like I don't think it's possible, that the cuts will pay for themselves through growth.

Bibles flown to moon stir ownership dispute

Eight of the 10 tiny holy books in dispute landed on the surface of the moon during NASA's 1971 Apollo 14 mission, carried in a pouch by astronaut Edgar Mitchell. After the Apollo 14 mission, Stout gave many of his valuable artifacts away to family or friends, squirreling away the rest in his tiny Texas apartment. Texas' attorneys have accused Mersch of cheating Stout out of the Bibles. Other pictures are autographed by Mitchell, who took the miniature Bibles to space, and Eugene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon. Mersch said if she wins, she'll donate some of the Bibles to museums or seminaries around the world, per the chaplain's wishes.

Democrats could tighten grip on California political control

But far across the country in California, the party of Reagan is seeing yet another threat to its fraying relevance. "Local government is the next big partisan battlefield" in California, said Thad Kousser, a political science professor at the University of California, San Diego. "It's the only place where the Democrats can still gain seats, and it's really the only place the Republican Party is focused on rebuilding its ranks." Republicans now control a majority of the five seats, though Democrats hold a nearly seven-point registration edge in the county. San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox, a Republican, has called the plan to eliminate the panel of retired judges an attempt to establish "blatant political redistricting."

Trump lawyer told Carter Page to 'cease' calling self adviser, as Russia concerns intensified

Donald Trump’s legal team was trying to distance the president from international businessman Carter Page in the aftermath of the 2016 White House race, amid mounting questions about Russia influencing the outcome, according to a letter obtained by Fox News. Ex-Trump adviser Page rips 'false narrative' on Russia collusionThe U.S. intelligence community says Russia meddled in the race, in which Trump upset Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton but found no evidence of vote tampering. “You never met Mr. Trump, nor did you ever ‘advise’ Mr. Trump about anything. You are thus not an ‘advisor’ to Mr. Trump in any sense of the word.”Page is an international financier who specializes in Russia’s oil and gas markets and once worked in Moscow. He has acknowledged being among those who talked with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at last summer’s Republican National Committee convention, where Trump won the GOP presidential nomination.

WWE Raw Viewership Suggests Braun Strowman Is Becoming A Major Draw

Credit: WWE.comGone are all the generic, homogenous online criticisms of Strowman being "green" because he is a giant who has never stepped foot in Ring of Honor. After back-to-back weeks that saw him tip and ambulance and destroy an entire ring, Braun Strowman has arrived and he is for real. WWE's Raw viewership, with Strowman in the main event against the Big Show, drew 3.346 million viewers. And while first-to-third-hour viewers declined at a slightly above average clip of 240,00 viewers Monday night, the Strowman surge seems to be holding Raw together on television while exploding on digital media. Strowman's ring-breaking stunt against The Big Show has already amassed over 4.6 million viewers.
