A.J. Delgado, a senior adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign, said Friday that it was accurate for Trump to call Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman” at the third and final presidential debate.
Ever since NBA commissioner Adam Silver wrote a passionate New York Times op-ed in 2014 in favor of legalizing sports betting, those with skin in the game have hoped for progress in repealing the federal laws that restrict sports betting. In August, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that legalizes and protects daily fantasy sports contests, which some state attorneys general have called illegal gambling. The politician leading the charge is US Rep. Frank Pallone of New Jersey, who tells ESPN the current laws are “obsolete” and “in desperate need of updating.” Pallone’s state of New Jersey (and to an extent, Philadelphia) has been a leader in the effort to get PASPA repealed, for the tax benefit that gaming would bring to the state.
Nearly four months after he first spoke out against Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, Khizr Khan is taking on the GOP nominee yet again. In a new ad released by Hillary Clinton’s campaign Friday, the Pakistani-born lawyer and Gold Star father describes the 2004 suicide bombing that killed his son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was serving in Iraq in 2004. “My son moved forward to stop the bomber,” Khan says in the commercial.
Throughout the Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton’s campaign presented her as a crusading reformer who would take on powerful corporate interests and curb the role of big money in American politics.
In 1983, Donald Trump bought one of the teams in the new United States Football League, with grand plans of making himself the center of sports — the center of everything — in New York. He would build Trumpdome for his New York Generals to play in. He would then use his team as leverage to merge into the far more lucrative NFL.
First lady Michelle Obama probably helps Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail more than President Obama does, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday. “Based on the strong support and deep respect that people across the country have for her, based on the compelling personal argument that she’s been making in support of Secretary Clinton, and she’s also quite talented in her own right at delivering a speech, and those things I do think combine to make her a very powerful advocate for secretary Clinton — and probably the most powerful advocate that Secretary Clinton has,” Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing. Earnest’s comment came after Michelle Obama won rave reviews from Democrats and some pundits for a pair of high-profile speeches on the campaign trail.
On “The Alan Colmes Show” on Fox News on Thursday, Rep. Brian Babin of Texas invoked Southern gentility as he tried to explain why he believes that women should be called out for being nasty. “You think it’s appropriate to call her a ‘nasty woman’?” pressed Colmes, a liberal political commenter.

Donald Trump walked away from a reporter mid-interview Thursday after he was asked about people who’ve called him a racist and a sexist. In a one-on-one interview ahead of his campaign rally in Ohio, local NBC4 reporter Colleen Marshall questioned the Republican presidential nominee about his widely disputed voter fraud claims, criticisms of his tax plan and even the string of prominent Republicans who’ve withdrawn their support for his campaign following the release of the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” videotape earlier this month. “Nineteen days out from the election, you’ve been labeled a racist, you’ve been called a sexist,” Marshall began before the candidate cut her off.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump ripped each other with scorching zingers Thursday night, but privately, they apparently took a softer approach. Cardinal Timothy Dolan said Trump actually heaped praise on Clinton just before they took their seats at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in New York. Clinton reportedly then extended an olive branch to Trump.
Nearly 24 hours after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head for the third and final presidential debate, they found themselves on the same stage again — only this time, for lighthearted ribbing. Every four years, the Al Smith dinner, an annual fundraiser for Catholic charities, offers a moment of levity and self-deprecation at the tail end of grueling campaigns. Trump’s sense of humor and brash attitude didn’t quite translate to the white-tie gala meant to raise money for children in poverty throughout New York.
The Daily News published a blistering, 14-chapter editorial that railed against Donald Trump and everything that he stands for. When the Manhattan businessman launched his presidential campaign in the summer of 2015, the Daily News depicted the Republican as a clown.
Ever since the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, presidents have been judged on the successes they notch during their first 100 days. Now, as Barack Obama prepares to end his historic turn on the political stage, Yahoo News is running The Last 100 Days, a look at what Obama achieved during his consequential presidency, how he navigates the struggles of his last months in office and what lies ahead for him after eight years filled with firsts. As Obama himself is fond of noting, he also spent his two terms as father to daughters Malia and Sasha and husband to first lady Michelle Obama.
If you’ve ever squirmed through a mean-spirited, ill-advised wedding toast delivered by somebody’s inappropriate, drunk uncle, then you’ll have some sense of the feeling in the room at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel on Thursday night, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton attended the annual fundraiser for Catholic charities known as the Al Smith Dinner. The event has become a regular stop near the end of the presidential campaign cycle over the past decade, but its history stretches back more than 70 years. Over time, nominees have been invited or excluded based largely on their relationships with the Catholic Church.
Donald Trump was forced Thursday to admit he would accept “clear” results of the Nov. 8 presidential election, after coming under intense criticism when he refused to endorse the legitimacy of American elections in his third and final debate with Hillary Clinton. “Of course, I would accept a clear election result, but I would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result, right?” Trump told supporters at a rally in Delaware, Ohio. Trump claimed he was asked “an unprecedented question” Wednesday night by moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News.
Last month, a droopy-eyed cartoon frog named Pepe became one of them. Over the past year, Pepe the Frog has become a regular fixture of racist and anti-Semitic Internet memes — many of them supporting Republican Donald Trump’s campaign. “It’s completely insane that Pepe has been labeled a symbol of hate, and that racists and anti-Semites are using a once peaceful frog-dude from my comic book as an icon of hate,” artist Matt Furie, who first introduced his droopy-eyed amphibian to the world 10 years ago with the debut of his comic book “Boys’ Club,” wrote last week in an open letter at Time Ideas.
Ethan Soderberg, a senior at University of Wisconsin-Madison, only plans to vote for Hillary Clinton if the election is close. The Green Party’s Jill Stein is his preferred candidate. “I don’t think she’s as progressive as she portrays herself to be,” Soderberg said of Clinton.
Hillary Clinton,accompanied by campaign manager Robby Mook, left, and traveling press secretary Nick Merrill, right, speaks with members of the media aboard her campaign plane following the third presidential debate. Down Ticket is Yahoo News’ complete guide to the most fascinating House, Senate and governors’ races of 2016. The debates are done and Clinton is sitting pretty.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to make a major announcement today,” the Republican nominee told his supporters in Delaware, Ohio. Trump, trailing in the polls, sparked a wave of criticism at the debate Wednesday night when he refused to commit to accepting the election results if Democrat Hillary Clinton emerges victorious Nov. 8. Clinton called his response “horrifying” and a number of Republicans spoke out against Trump’s position, which undermines a basic tenet of the democratic transition of power.
In one of the most notable moments of the third and final presidential debate of 2016, Donald Trump refused to agree to accept the results of the November election whether he’s the winner or not. “I will look at it at the time,” the Republican presidential nominee replied when asked whether he would commit to conceding the election if he loses, as his family and campaign surrogates have said he would.
Another woman came forward Thursday accusing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of “inappropriate sexual conduct” in a press conference called by women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred. Allred introduced Karena Virginia, a yoga teacher and “inspirational speaker,” at the London Hotel in Manhattan — within walking distance of the famed Trump Tower. “After Donald Trump was caught on tape bragging about groping women, a number of women came forward to share their experiences,” Virginia said.
Moments before the third and final debate of the presidential campaign Wednesday night, Republican candidate Donald Trump launched a live stream on his Facebook page that some think might have been the inaugural broadcast of Trump TV. The Trump campaign, partnering with a pro-Trump live-stream outlet called Right Side Broadcasting, organized an extensive broadcast that resembled how other news outlets covered the big night at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Trump had previously pushed out live streams from Right Side Broadcasting, a young online network that streams every one of the mogul’s events.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump greets his wife, Melania, his son Eric and his daughter Ivanka after the third and final 2016 presidential debate at UNLV in Las Vegas on Wednesday night. For 16 months, Donald Trump’s accidental campaign was the hottest thing on TV. After weeks of ugly disclosures and cratering polls, all that remained for Trump was to figure out some way to end the series without having to admit it was canceled.
It was disturbing enough that Donald Trump has thrown loose talk around on the campaign trail that he feels the election is going to be rigged against him. “I’ll look at it at the time,” was all that Trump would say, after being asked multiple times by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, the moderator of the third and final presidential debate.
Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was tired of getting questions about his comments that the election is “rigged” when she spoke to reporters in the spin room at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, on Wednesday night. “Is this the only question there’s going to be?” Conway said when Yahoo News asked her about his comments. Trump, who is running behind his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the polls, has repeatedly suggested that the vote could be rigged in recent appearances on the campaign trail.
