High-powered New York City real estate developer Aby Rosen has sent his business partner Jared Kushner a pretty rude message.

Remember When Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump Were Maybe Forced To Pose Nude In College?

Brendan O'Connor · 08/08/16 12:35PM

Who really cares that Melania Trump posed nude? That the New York Post published the photos last month briefly distracted from her husband’s feud with the family of a dead Muslim veteran, but otherwise mostly served to ignite another scandal: What’s the deal with Melania’s early immigration status? We all moved on from the nudes per se so quickly that we all forgot to remember that thanks to a bizarre (and mercifully discontinued) practice at Ivy League and Seven Sisters schools, there is some chance—slim though it may be—that there exists, somewhere on this globe, a nude or two of Hillary Clinton and of Donald Trump.

Report: No Easy Way to Stop Giving Money to Trump 

Hannah Gold · 08/06/16 12:30PM

Speaking to an NBC affiliate in Jacksonville, Florida, Donald Trump was pressed (by a former employee) to name a few of the women he might place on his cabinet when he ascends the throne. The only women Trump seems capable of naming on the spot? His beloved daughter, Ivanka Trump and—oh, I don’t know. How about you. Holding the microphone. Yeah, you’ll do.

I Ran the C.I.A. Now I Work For a Longtime Clinton Ally's Consulting Firm and Am Endorsing Hillary Clinton

Brendan O'Connor · 08/05/16 09:43AM

On Friday, the New York Times ran an op-ed penned by Michael Morell, a 33-year veteran of the Central Intelligence agency who served as its acting director and deputy director from 2010 to 2013. Contravening political conventions of non-partisanship, Morell not only endorses Hillary Clinton for president but even goes so far as to suggest that Donald Trump “may well pose a threat to our national security.”

Donald Trump Admits Mistake

Brendan O'Connor · 08/05/16 07:45AM

An incomprehensibly boring controversy emerged earlier this week after the Wall Street Journal published a poorly-structured piece about Iran involving the return of frozen Iranian funds in the form of cash, which coincided with the release four detained Americans.
