(Image via Twitter) Hillary Clinton took aim at Donald Trump during her speech at a Planned Parenthood event in Washington, D.C., on Friday. During her remarks, Clinton first praised America’s largest abortion provider for its work in “reproductive justice.” “I am thankful to the reproductive justice leaders in this room and across America,” she said, “because you know that all these issues go straight to that fundamental question – whether we believe women and families of all races and backgrounds and income levels deserve an equal shot in life. “Now that’s what I believe.

Maher: Sanders Supporters Are "Used To Getting Shit For Free"; That's Not Socialism, It's "Santa-ism"

In the closing monologue of his HBO show Real Time Friday night, host Bill Maher addressed millennial support for socialism, but criticized that they “are ready for a little too much socialism.” Maher said what they want isn’t socialism, but “Santa-ism.” “Almost two-thirds of Sanders voters want free college, and free universal health coverage for no more than an extra $1,000 in taxes, even though that’s not really socialism. That’s Santa-ism,” Maher said. Maher educated those who are “used to getting shit for free” need to understand the “natural order of things,” where you pay for things. “And, look, no one is arguing that millennials haven’t gotten a rotten deal in this economy but they’ve also gotten used to getting shit for free,” he explained. “If you’re a millennial you may never have known … Read entire article »

From Brooks’ weekly Friday night appearance on PBS NewsHour: DAVID BROOKS, The New York Times: Weirdly not. Maybe I’m a chauvinist or something. But, you know, obviously, the transformation of the role of women is the biggest event of our lifetime. It’s the biggest transformation after thousands of years of human history to getting closer to equality on that front. But Hillary Clinton, it was so long in coming, it didn’t, to me, feel like the big seismic shift, frankly, the way Barack Obama felt in ’08, I think because she’s such a familiar figure … Read entire article »
