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.
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.
From the ambush and killing of five police officers in Dallas in July to the tragic police shooting of Philando Castile and other minority men, the issue of policing has taken the spotlight during this presidential race — with Americans very divided on the issue.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the early clashes between the candidates in the final debate was over so-called partial-birth abortion — an abortion procedure that is sometimes performed later in pregnancy that Hillary Clinton has said should remain legal and that Donald Trump opposes. After saying he would appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court on the assumption that they would overturn Roe v. Wade, Trump said: “I think it’s terrible in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Clinton responded that this was a misinterpretation of how late-term abortion works.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence visited the charred interior of a GOP office in North Carolina that was firebombed over the weekend. The Indiana governor denounced the arson attack as “cowardly” and an “act of political terrorism” after touring the site in the town of Hillsborough. “I wanted to come by to call attention to this cowardly attack on our supporters in North Carolina and to no less extent an attack on the American political system.
Eleven-year-old Karla Ortiz met Hillary Clinton at a campaign event in Las Vegas in February, a closed meeting with a small group of mostly young Hispanics. U.S.-born citizen11-year-old Karla Ortiz takes the stage with her mother, Francisca Ortiz, who is undocumented, at the Democratic National Convention.
On Monday’s “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” O’Reilly said the Republican presidential candidate should quit “whining” at the debate and instead focus on a few issues that matter to him. The third and final presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is set to take place Wednesday night at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. “That’s whining,” O’Reilly said.
The 2016 presidential campaign began, in the minds of many of its participants, on Inauguration Day 2013. It got officially underway in November 2014 with the formation of an exploratory committee by Virginia Sen. Jim Webb. It involved 22 debates, not counting the “kiddie tables” for the second-tier Republican candidates, and not one but two Super Tuesdays (March 1 and 15).
Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker and The Borowitz Report spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about Donald Trump’s locker-room talk. He said, “If Donald Trump ever set foot in an actual locker room, I can guarantee you he’d get his ass kicked.”
Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker and The Borowitz Report spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about what could be next for Donald Trump after the 2016 election. In response to the news that Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, reportedly had an informal discussion with an investor about a possible Trump TV network, Borowitz said, “There’s money to be made from people’s anger and racism; it will be done.”
As we count down to Election Day, Yahoo News has identified 16 unforgettable people, moments and places. ORLANDO, Fla. — After Omar Mateen killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando this past June, John Henkle, a Nicaraguan-American banker who used to frequent Pulse, wasn’t sure how the community would react. Henkle thought Orlando was a fairly gay friendly place for a smaller city, but still no Miami.
Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker and The Borowitz Report spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about the role the media has played in bringing attention to Donald Trump. He said, “Donald Trump got way more attention. He got billions of dollars worth of free media.” He continued, “The primary unfolded like a reality show, where you had a huge bunch of people on the island, and Trump’s real goal was to ritually and serially humiliate every one of the people off the island.”
Driving around Youngstown, Ohio, you can’t miss the painted signs, stuck in yards or in the beds of pickup trucks. What makes this election cycle unique is that Donald’s twin brother, Ronald Skowron, a former sheriff’s deputy, is helping. A lifelong Democrat, Ronald crossed party lines to vote for Donald Trump in the Ohio primary and said he plans to stick with the Republican in the general election.
Tacarra Morgan was playing on her front porch just after lunch on a sunny Tuesday afternoon last July when the first pops rang out down the street. It sounded like fireworks at first, but even at just 6 years old, Tacarra knew better.
As we count down to Election Day, Yahoo News has identified 16 unforgettable people, moments and places. Isaac Saul did not actually invent the term “Berniebro” to refer to a certain strain of Sanders supporters, mostly young men making the thrilling discovery that politics can lend itself to just as much exuberance and passion, bordering on obnoxiousness, as sports or music. “Even putting aside the Clinton ties to Wall Street and her embarrassingly destructive policies for poor people and the shrinking middle class, my No.1 fear … is that we’re putting in another War Hawk, someone even worse than Obama,” he wrote in a typical passage.
As we count down to Election Day, Yahoo News has identified 16 unforgettable people, moments and places. Katie Packer has been involved in Republican politics at the state and national level since 1988, when as a college student she volunteered for George H.W. Bush’s presidential campaign. Like many in the GOP’s professional political class, she was appalled at the rise of Donald Trump.
Three parents whose children were killed by illegal immigrants took the stage on the first night of the Republican convention in support of Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown. There are no demonstrators to protest on their behalf.
It was an unforgettable moment in Donald Trump’s remarkable presidential run — and in case you have forgotten it, the Clinton campaign is all too happy to remind you. At a rally in South Carolina last fall, Trump performed a crude, arm-flapping imitation of a New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, who has a congenital disability affecting his right hand and wrist. The backstory to this episode involves a remark Trump had made at an earlier speech, in the context of his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country: “I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down,” he said.
Until Feb. 26, 2016, hardly anyone outside his own courtroom had heard of U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel of the Southern District of California. Curiel, a former U.S. prosecutor and state Superior Court judge, had been named by President Obama to the federal bench in 2011. In 2014 he drew the case of Tarla Makaeff v. Trump University — a class-action suit brought by students at Donald Trump’s unaccredited business school, alleging, in effect, that the whole enterprise was a scam that charged tens of thousands of dollars for useless three-day seminars.
