From the creators of “5-Hour Energy” comes “5-Hour Empathy,” a special tincture that will help white Americans understand centuries of systemic racism experienced by people of color.

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.
