Celebrities Sink Another Democrat’s Race

Out of touch Hollywood celebrities have failed yet again in their bid to support a political candidate with pockets full of money. This time, their candidate of choice was Democrat Jon Ossoff, who is running for Georgia’s 6th congressional district recently vacated by Rep.Tom Price who left to work for the Trump administration as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

What Americans Think of Trump’s Nascent Presidency

President Donald Trump has cemented strong views about his leadership just four weeks into his presidency, a new poll by the Pew Research Center found. Just 39% of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance at the helm of the federal government, with 75% of those polled strongly expressing their views. Trump, who had messy rollouts on a few executive actions and currently has a White House in turmoil, is edging close to George W. Bush’s nadir in 2008. The survey showed that many Americans convey concern on Trump’s bungled execution of the executive order regarding immigration from several Muslim-majority countries. Nearly 60% of the...
