Donald Trump’s Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has come under fire after Politico reported late Tuesday that the Republican politician has used private jets for government business five times in the last week — including for a 125-mile trip from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. “This is a mind-blowing story, coming as Price & Admin are working feverishly to slash health coverage for millions,” CNN commentator David Axelrod tweeted. “A DC to Philly charter flight is one of the most insane expenditures I’ve ever heard of,” MSNBC host Chris Hayes noted.   Also Read: Trump Hotels Swap Usual Charities, »

Hillary Clinton Accuses Putin of ‘Manspreading’ During Meetings (Video)

3 hours ago

Not-president Hillary Clinton dropped by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday, when the two tried to figure out just what the hell happened in November. Among Clinton’s many stories shared last night, the politician-turned-author, who referred to herself as “Paula Revere,” spoke of experiencing Russian president Vladimir Putin’s sexism first-hand — like the time she was bypassed in favor of her husband on an invite for a polar bear-tagging trip, as well as the Democracy-hater’s general disinterest in dealing with women in power. That latter biological fact “does seem to get him a bit agitated,” Clinton said. »

‘Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Formula’s Still Fun, But the Story Feels Mechanical

4 hours ago

“You must forget everything you know,” a mysterious pawn shop owner (Jackie Chan) intones, as he tells a little boy the wondrous story of Ninjago. You’ll probably enjoy the experience more if you’re able to take his advice, too. “The Lego Ninjago Movie” does fit into the decidedly silly, self-aware sphere of the Lego movie franchise. Comparisons won’t help it any, though: unlike the two previous entries, this one feels a little worn around the edges. But while parents may miss the second-level smarts of its predecessors, kids should fall right into the fun. A lot of the credit goes to. »
