We’ve all been there — a shin to a coffee table or a trip on the sidewalk can leave you with a black-and-blue or two.

Skarsgard: Republican officials are taking a cue from President Donald Trump and unloading on Anthony Scaramucci – with aides anonymously blasting his professional conduct with female colleagues during his brief 11-day stint at the White House. And the White House is now saying on the record the man who President Trump brought in to head the communications shop has no 'relevance' or 'credibility.'
