Rudy Giuliani, who has had a disastrous week as Trump’s mouthpiece, tried to clean up some of his recent comments that tied Trump directly to payoffs to porn star Stormy Daniels. And it was another disaster. Earlier in the week, Giuliani revealed, while in a cozy conversation with pro-Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity, that Trump knew the $130,000 he handed off to attorney-fixer Michael Cohen was being used to keep his affair quiet.
Or perhaps it was the persuasive case presented by an able young prosecutor, Montgomery County (Pennsylvania) Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden, who put forward five additional witnesses who alleged that Cosby had also assaulted them.

Wilson’s is the latest of multiple lawsuits alleging either discrimination or harassment at the hands of Fox News or Fox Business personalities. In 2016, the network infamously lost its founder, Roger Ailes, after former Fox host Gretchen Carlson sued him for sexual harassment, prompting many more women to come forward with their stories.
I never thought Barbara Bush would remind me of my working-class mother, but there it is. When I read these two accounts, in the wake of Bush’s death this week at age 92, I thought of my mom and the way she openly marveled at how I, her college-educated firstborn, thrived in the throes of the feminist movement.
More than 40 House Democratic candidates outraised Republican incumbents in the first quarter of 2018, according to the Cook Political Report. Half of those 40 Democrats are women.

Public anger at the ills unleashed by social media currently burns hottest on Facebook — namely, its profiting off political lies posted by masked operatives. Many also blame Facebook for stoking the modern hell of FOMO — fear of missing out. We speak of the feelings of inadequacy fanned by friends’ jolly vacation and party posts, presentations that make many think everyone is having a better time than they are.
