On Wednesday, controversial Breitbart “News” editor Milo Yiannopoulos (best known for being banned from Twitter after encouraging his followers to harass Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones) was scheduled to speak at the University of California, Berkeley. The speech was canceled, however, after “150 masked agitators” disrupted what was considered to be a peaceful protest, CNN reports. Yiannopoulos was invited to speak at the university by the Berkeley College Republicans, who allegedly sought to “jolt the liberal campus with a different perspective.” The questionable conservative, along with White House...
In only seven minutes during the newest episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Samantha Bee rips apart everything wrong with the president’s latest executive order, something the host of the political satire show called the healthcare.gov of Islamaphobia. On Friday, Donald Trump signed an executive order banning travel to seven Muslim countries for 90 days and suspending all refugee admission to the country for 120 days. Syrian refugee admission was suspended indefinitely. Trump has taken to calling it a territory ban, insisting that it’s not...
Last night, reports emerged that Donald Trump had blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull via phone over a refugee resettlement deal. He ranted and raved about his electoral college win (please stop. please), rated the call against his other calls that day (it was the worst apparently), before abruptly ending the chat 35 minutes earlier than scheduled. As an Aussie living in New York, both sides of my social media went into meltdown. Our Prime Minister, attempting to pretend everything was fine and normal, insisted on...
Trump revealed his nominee for Supreme Court Justice on Tuesday in a way that only he could — with a flashy press conference littered with the words “tremendous” and “brilliant." His nominee was conservative (shocker) federal appellate judge Neil Gorsuch. Unlike most of Trump's other choices for cabinet and official positions, Gorsuch actually fits the qualifications to be a Supreme Court Justice and follows the pattern of many other justices — graduating from Ivy League universities and serving as a law clerk for two Supreme...

  It’s amazing how people still seem to think they can brazenly plagiarize others' work and get away with it. But what’s even more amazing is that they actually do keep getting away with it. Over the last six months, there have been a number of instances of poorly-concealed copying by this unqualified, unprofessional, unethical team. But much like most Trump controversies, these shameless crimes are quickly pushed off the front page by other controversies, before we can properly admonish them. It’s a horrible example to be setting...
I'd say it started out as another night out in Montreal, except that wouldn't be accurate. I almost never go out for drinks: working with clients in a different time zone means I have to get up extra early in the morning. That, as well as no longer being in my 20s, has reduced my outings. But my friend Steve was in town, visiting from Ottawa, and he wanted to have a drink. We met at a local coffee bar, saw a show, and moved...

Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro has warned that if the White House orders the US Customs and Border Protection Agency to continue with his hateful travel ban despite the judicial stays against it, Congress will be forced to begin the process of impeaching Trump. In an interview with Buzzfeed News, the Representative called for Congress to “investigate whether President Trump intentionally exceeded his constitutional authority.” A spokesperson for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency said, “CBP officers are not detaining anyone. Green card holders who arrive...

If the mood in Washington, D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration was somber and funereal (and spent avoiding men in red hats), the energy in the air on the National Mall for the Women’s March was giddy with excitement and accessorized in shades of pink pussy hats. One attendee marveled, "I think I have enough positive energy to keep me going for the next four years. So much love here." Despite all of the artistic and profane posters demonstrators brought with them — elegantly rendered uteruses outlined...
  Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates last night.  Yates was appointed by Obama to the position of Deputy Attorney General in May 2015, and served under former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The Trump administration to asked Yates to serve as interim Attorney General until Trump’s nomination, Jeff Sessions, is confirmed. But while Yates was only due to occupy the position until Sessions takes over, Trump decided to fire her (which is substantially different from having her transition out of the role, as was expected) when...
Image via Twitter/@ABCNews24 Finally, some good news for women (and boy, do we need it). On Monday, Susan Keifel was sworn in as Australia’s first female Chief Justice of the High Court — the highest judicial office in the country. Women have sat on the bench since 1987, but Chief Justice Keifel is the first woman to hold the top role. Keifel was nominated by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who called her story “an inspiration.” She dropped out of school at age 15 and began working as a...
