#Iran's leader (to #Russia president #Putin): One thing that Iran & Russia can cooperate on is containing the #US, for the US is a danger to humanity & it is possible to contain it.

More from Trump's Montana Rally Watch the little kid. He is signaling white power. This is so disturbing! This is not the fault of his own but the fault of his parents! Nobody is born a racist. Being a racist is learned.

A 17-year-old was “escorted to a back room” and held by police and Secret Service for 10 minutes....for not looking enthusiastic at the president’s political rally?

Funny yet horrifying.

We filed our complaint with the Department of Justice accusing #BrettKavanaugh of perjury based on these newly released emails.

The texts in question were not sent by the campaign, but sent by an impostor Video ››› September 7, 2018 4:45 PM EDT ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF 325 Print Email From the September 7 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show: SEAN HANNITY (HOST): A text message was sent out by a Democratic Senate hopeful down, where is this, in Texas. With this guy, what's his name -- O'Rourke, everybody loves so much, Beto O'Rourke is the guy's name. Locked in a tight race, they say, with Ted Cruz -- I think Ted Cruz will win. Ted Cruz has been an enormous help with this country, a tremendous advocate for constitutional conservatism. And look, I know that he got in a big fight with Trump, but he's been one of the president's most reliable senators. ... Anyway, O'Rourke's race, it goes on to say, "we are in search of volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants to polling booths." They're doing that in Texas. I'm not making it up, it was in The Austin American Statesman -- don't believe me.

Trump Organization officials under investigation for potentially breaking campaign finance law: report

Let’s stop today for a moment to remember that there are STILL 416 children separated from their parents because of @realDonaldTrump’s heartless child-snatching policy. The Admin MUST find a way to reunite these families. Don’t let them off the hook. Don’t forget. Keep fighting.
