  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...
On the day of the inauguration, bars in Copenhagen were offering “sympathy shots” to all Americans. The next day, they marched in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. While many are now referring to the Women’s March as “the biggest U.S. protest in history,” they are forgetting the women who marched in 168 solidarity marches held outside of the United States. It seems surreal that in 2017, people around the globe showed up on the same day to assert that women are humans and that we...
Both President Obama and Should-Have-Been-President Clinton speak from difficult positions these days. Outgoing presidents are generally expected to retreat into the background, giving their successors an informal grace period, while the losing candidate in an election is supposed to respect and uphold the peaceful transition of power, rather than continuing the campaign against the victor (even if they did win the popular vote). But both Mom and Dad have been lending their support to anti-Trump protests, without explicitly speaking out against President Trump. President Obama released a...
Donald Trump’s Muslim ban was made on the pretense that Muslim immigrant terrorists are entering the United States in droves....even though statistics show that in the US, more people are killed by lightning or lawnmowers than by Islamic terrorism each year. But the recent Quebec mosque shooting proves that there is one kind of terrorism we need to fight — domestic terrorism carried out by racist, sexist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, so-called ”alt-right” neo-Nazi white supremacists. On Sunday night, a man walked into a mosque in Quebec City...
The hilarious Megan Mullally, who’s made a career of scandalizing audiences in beloved shows from Will & Grace to Parks & Rec, gets real about defying Hollywood’s expectationsBy Jenni Miller // Photo By Ramona Rosales   Megan Mullally is pop culture royalty. The actor, whose IMDB roster dates back to 1981, solidified her place in the TV canon on Will & Grace: her character Karen Walker, a rich socialite with a maniacal laugh and a ravenous appetite for booze, drugs, and sex, was unlike anything primetime audiences...
