BUSTED: Trump said NFL quarterback Tom Brady voted for him — but Brady’s wife says that’s not true

Published

on

On Monday night in New Hampshire, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump claimed that legendary Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had phoned him earlier in the day and told him that he had voted for him.

This raised some eyebrows because Brady had told a local sports talk radio show that he hadn’t voted yet on Monday morning, and he wouldn’t reveal whom be planned to vote for.

Now USA Today’s PatriotsWire blog has noticed that Tom Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, has denied that she and her husband are going to be voting for Trump today.

In chatting with some of her fans on Instagram this past Friday, one fan asked her if the rumors were true that she and Tom were going to vote for Trump.

“NO!” Bundchen replied emphatically.

It’s entirely possible, of course, that Bundchen is refusing to vote for Trump while Brady still plans to support him. On the other hand, given the fact that Trump regularly makes up claims out of thin air, it’s also possible that Brady’s support is purely a work of the candidate’s own active imagination.

Veteran broadcaster Cokie Roberts has died at the age of 75 due to complications from breast cancer.

Roberts joined NPR in 1978 before moving to ABC News, and she won three Emmy Awards and was inducted into the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame and was cited by the American Women in Radio and Television as one of the 50 greatest women in the history of broadcasting.

"She was a true pioneer for women in journalism," said James Goldston, president of ABC News, "well-regarded for her insightful analysis of politics and policy in Washington, D.C., countless newsmaking interviews, and, notably, her unwavering support for generations of young women — and men — who would follow in her footsteps."

Millennials are moving to Trump-backing states — and the GOP should be terrified: columnist

Published

on

Millennial voters are substantively more progressive than older generations of voters, but their political power has been diluted by the fact that many of them have been concentrated in cities in deep-blue states.

However, The Atlantic's Derek Thompson argues that this is about to change because more millennials are leaving the big blue-state cities to move out to metro areas in key states such as Arizona, Georgia and Texas.

"The five fastest-growing metros of the past few years -- Dallas, Phoenix, Houston, Atlanta, and Orlando, Florida -- are in states won by Trump," he writes. "The other metro areas with a population of at least 1 million that grew by at least 1.5 percent last year were Las Vegas; Austin, Texas; Orlando, Florida; Raleigh, North Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; Charlotte, North Carolina; San Antonio; Tampa, Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee. All of those metros are in red or purple states."

Published

on

Mitch McConnell finally has the power he's longed for since he was a 22-year-old intern for Sen. John Sherman, but his ruthless march to become Senate majority leader has seen him abandon almost all of his stated principles -- and earned him a lot of enemies.

The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but this summer has seen his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname "Moscow Mitch," and he's increasingly seen as "the man who sold America," reported Rolling Stone.
