You guys took everything that Donald Trump said so literally,” Lewandowski said.

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., speaks on the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Monday, July 25, 2016. Rep. Keith Ellison’s bid to lead the Democratic National Committee got a shot in the arm Friday afternoon, as his chief rival for the spot, former Vermont Gov.

The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture. This all comes after a host of plant layoffs and a temporary shutdown to the Michigan facility.

The speed-crazed fools over at Hennessey Performance recently got their hands on a brand-new 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1. To celebrate the car's presence—with just 26 miles on the odometer—the company's head honcho took the muscle car from zero to 173-miles-per-hour...and pit the new 'Maro against Chevy's flagship sports car, the Corvette Z06. The Camaro ZL1, which we first saw in person at the New York International Auto Show in March, is one beast of a machine.

Measures taken in Turkey after the July 15 coup attempt created an "environment conducive to torture", and ill treatment appears to have been widespread immediately after the failed putsch, a UN expert said Friday. Turkey is under a state of emergency, extended for 12 weeks in October, after a rogue military faction tried to remove President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from power on July 15. "Some recently passed legislation and statutory decrees created an environment conducive to torture," UN special rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer told reporters in Ankara.
