Published

Fox News host Shep Smith abruptly resigned Friday, saying at the end of his show that he would be stepping down effective immediately.

Friday was also National Coming Out Day, where LGBTQ people come out of the closet to encourage LGBT! young people that they’re not alone.

In his latest Bloomberg column, Lake argues that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) made a smart argument in favor of not impeaching the president: Namely, that his attempt to extort Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden fell apart before it could be fully executed.

Trump flying in for last-ditch rally to save Louisiana GOP governor candidate with ‘really bad’ vote returns
