  • "Real Time" host Bill Maher has had it with how Republicans have a different set of rules when it comes to how they respond to what the President says now that he is a member of their own party, so he brought out Obama impersonator Reggie Brown to read some of Trump's most memorable quotes. What followed is eight minutes of cringe worthy hilarity.

(Credit to Jon Stewart for coming up with that description.

Picture for a moment that you were in a car accident, but luckily survived. Thankful for being able to walk away from such a terrible occurrence, you go searching for help. Knocking on someone's door for assistance, you breathe a sigh of relief knowing that aid will soon be on its way. But instead of a friendly gesture of humanity, you're greeted instead with a gunshot to the face. That's the horrific scenario of what happened to young 19-year-old Renisha McBride on Nov. 2nd in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. And to add insult...

This past Saturday, approximately 175,000 to 200,000 people gathered and marched in Washington, D.C. to call attention to the civil rights challenges of our time.

No justice, no peace. In the most devastating and detrimental blow to Americans, the electoral process and our Constitutional right to vote, the Supreme Court has struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Section 4, which maps the areas that must have pre-clearance from the federal government before making any changes to their voting laws, was ruled 'unconstitutional' in a 5-4 decision today, and the ball was thrown into Congress' court.
