Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) was right to call former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon a white supremacist, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) contended on Sunday. “I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist, and [senior White House adviser] Stephen Miller seems to be. Brown’s comments come after Wilson, who is black, charged that President Donald Trump’s attacks against her over a phone call he placed to the widow of a black soldier were racially motivated.
Rachel Maddow on Friday doubled down on her controversial reporting on the deadly Niger ambush on U.S. troops, in which she linked President Donald Trump’s travel ban with the deaths of four soldiers. Maddow’s report, delivered Thursday and reiterated Friday, strongly suggested that Trump’s addition of Chad to his travel ban prompted the country to withdraw its U.S.-partnered counterterrorism troops in Niger, thus causing an increase in attacks by the self-described Islamic State in the area. ...so no wonder Trump doesn't want to talk about Niger.

While Bill Clinton delivered a speech discussing the enduring disaster in Puerto Rico, the younger Bush smiled and appeared to whisper something to Obama, making him laugh behind Bill Clinton.
A string of murders in Florida is sparking fears that a serial killer is targeting Tampa residents. The victims have no known connections to each other and were all bus riders who were killed within a 1-mile radius of each other in central Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood. “When you look at the time frame, the proximity, that there is no apparent motive, that they are alone ― the victims are a lot of the time ― it’s clear to me that they’re all linked,” interim Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan said at a Friday press conference.

Because of the huge success of the 911 R, Porsche suddenly has a renewed focus on cars that are built especially for enjoyment on the road, not all out times on the track. The new 911 GT3 is available with a touring package, which removes the rear wing and can only be optioned with the manual gearbox. It's actually inspired by the original 1968 model of the same name, so the T stands for Touring, and Porsche has focused on taking weight out of the Carrera.
The team at Short Pump Middle School outside Richmond had three games left in the season and will continue to meet for practice and participate in mandatory discussions over racial intolerance, ethics and accountability.

In a letter to the community released Friday, the Henrico County School Board said it is developing steps to prevent future incidents and will include parents in that discussion.

The “raisin weekend” stems from a gift — originally it was raisins, now it’s flour and shaving foam — traditionally given by first year students to their academic “parents” in gratitude for their guidance. Hundreds of students gathered to throw clumps of foam at each other, and it was all in the name of university tradition. The practice dates back around 600 years, and the name derives from when new students would offer a handful of raisins to older students in exchange for showing them around the university. A more typical present these days might be a bottle of wine.
A woman and her two children have been arrested in Long Island in connection to seven armed robberies, all of which took place over the last month. Deborah Salvatore, 55, and her children, Rick Mascia, 25, and 31-year-old Lauren Mascia, are accused of robbing a number local establishments: Two Family Dollar locations, two Dunkin Donuts, one Dollar Tree and the same Carvel twice. The most recent robbery was at a Dunkin Donuts on Oct. 21, and it initially didn't go as planned: Rick entered alone and said he wanted to buy a donut, but the cashier replied, "We’re about to close, so you can have the doughnuts for free," recounted another employee to the New York Post.

Top US diplomat Rex Tillerson pursued efforts to curb Tehran's influence in talks with his country's Gulf allies Sunday, demanding that Iran pare down its involvement in Iraq as the fight against the Islamic State group draws to a close.

President Donald Trump intends to spend at least $430,000 of his own money to help pay the legal bills of White House staff and campaign aides related to the investigations into Russian election meddling in the 2016 election, a White House official said Saturday. It's the first such commitment by Trump, who has dismissed the ongoing investigations into whether his campaign colluded with Russia as a "witch hunt" invented by Democrats to explain Hillary Clinton's loss.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blasted Steve Bannon in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” saying the former White House chief strategist backs losing Republican candidates who are dividing and hurting the GOP. “That’s what this inter-party skirmish is about,” McConnell said.

McConnell responded last week during an appearance in the Rose Garden with Donald Trump: “You have to nominate people who can actually win.
