A Milwaukee, Wisconsin teacher is in trouble after a class exercise in which the gym teacher forced two student to re-enact slavery, reports WTMJ.

‘This is a real warning’: Ex-campaign aide bluntly states Clinton didn’t go far enough criticizing Tulsi Gabbard
On MSNBC Saturday, former Clinton campaign official and director of SiriusXM progressive programming Zerlina Maxwell said that not only did Hillary Clinton do nothing wrong for criticizing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), she should have if anything gone even harder.
"I think she didn't go far enough, and we have to decide whether or not we'll listen to Hillary Clinton, who lived through this in 2016, or whether or not we're going to do what we did in 2016, is decide that what she's saying is irrelevant because of how we feel personally about her, and I think that that would be a mistake," said Maxwell.
Gen. Barry McCaffrey ridicules childish ‘Home Alone’ Trump over his ‘comical’ letter to Turkey’s president
Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday morning, retired General Barry McCaffrey came to the defense of former Donald Trump cabinet member Gen. James Mattis while taking a jab at the president for acting like an unattended child when dealing with world leaders.
Speaking with host Jonathan Capehart, the former official in President Bill Clinton's administration said the president was out of line attacking Mattis as "overrated" and said it could come back to hurt the president because the retired general is held in high esteem within military circles.
Addressing the president's antics, McCaffery showed he doesn't think much of the current Commander in Chief.
Mulvaney ‘paralyzed’ Trump’s impeachment defense team with his quid pro quo admission disaster: MSNBC guest
On MSNBC Saturday, Business Insider reporter Sonam Sheth broke down how damaging acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney's press briefing was for President Donald Trump's efforts to fight impeachment.
"When he took the podium yesterday, he got up there and threw a wrench through the entire defense that the president and his Republican allies in Congress have been making," said Sheth. "So, setting aside the fact that soliciting foreign interference in an election with or without a quid pro quo is in and of itself potentially illegal conduct, their main defense was that, look, there was no quid pro quo here. He was just talking about wanting an investigation into corruption because he feels like it's in the U.S.' interests. When Mick Mulvaney got up there, he essentially said that, yeah, the president was withholding this aid and essentially dangling taxpayer dollars because he wanted an investigation into his political opponent ahead of the election."
