Lawrence O'Donnell Says He's Staying At MSNBC

Lawrence O’Donnell told audiences Wednesday that he will be staying at MSNBC for “the next couple of years,” ending weeks of speculation about the longtime host’s future at the network.
Last month, sources told Yashar Ali in an article for HuffPost that network executives had not been in touch with the “Last Word” host as his contract neared its expiration. The lack of negotiation with a highly rated anchor like O’Donnell was considered unusual, as competing networks could lure talent away with counter-offers.
O’Donnell put those rumors to rest, addressing his future at the network both on the air and on Twitter. 
“I will be sitting right here talking about the James Comey hearing and everything else that happens next week and everything that happens for the next couple of years,” O’Donnell said. 

BREAKING: It looks like @Lawrence has renewed his contract and will be staying on @MSNBC for the next couple of years! Congrats! — Neil Jacobs (@NeilJacobs) June 1, 20…

Hillary Clinton Serves Donald Trump's Covfefe Right Back At Him

Hillary Clinton is pouring some cold covfefe on President Donald Trump
Trump’s mysterious early-morning “covfefe” tweet was widely considered a typo, but White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer insisted later in the day that the word had a specific meaning. 
“The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant,” he said. 
So what did Trump mean? 
“I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians,” Clinton said during an appearance at the Code Conference
Later in the day, Trump took to Twitter to blast Clinton as a “terrible candidate.”
She fired back:

Police Release Video Of Tiger Woods' DUI Arrest

Police in Jupiter, Florida, have released dashcam footage showing the DUI arrest of golf great Tiger Woods.
The 41-year-old was found early Monday asleep in his Mercedes, which was stopped in the right lane of a road. The engine was running, the blinker was on and the car had two flat tires along with some other damage, CBS 12 in West Palm Beach reported. 
The newly released police video shows Woods being cooperative but having difficulty following instructions and showing signs of confusion: 

In the video, Woods tells police he had not been drinking, which was confirmed by a Breathalyzer test. However, the golfer released a statement saying he was on prescribed medication and having an “unexpected reaction.”
Woods apologized to his family, friends and fans, thanked police and vowed to “do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.” 
The golfer is widely considered one of the greatest to ever swing a club, but his career has been derailed in recent years by a series of inju…

6 Relaxation Hacks For People Who Hate Meditating

If you suffer from stress and anxiety, odds are someone in your life has mentioned meditation as a way to cope with it. Psychiatrists often recommend this therapy, and for good reason — research based on 19,000 meditation studies found mindful meditation can in fact ease psychological stress.
Despite that data, however, meditation isn’t for everyone. And it may not serve some people who experience the most severe bouts of stress.
I have chronic generalized anxiety, which means I’m always experiencing a level of tension or stress. For the most part I can manage it, but every now and then, it’ll hit hard without warning, and uproot my day completely.
In college, my therapist recommended I try meditation to curb my anxiety. At first, I was happy to oblige. I tried a variety of styles, from Zen meditation, which has you focus on breathing, to primordial sound mediation, which involves, well, making primordial sounds.
It didn’t work. I’d often find myself more anxious at the end of a 15-minute…

Why Trump's Evangelical Base Won't Much Care If We Leave The Paris Accord

President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, a move that is unlikely to ruffle his evangelical base.

Under the terms of the deal, the U.S. cannot officially withdraw until November 2019. But in signaling an exit from the deal, Trump would make good on one of his major campaign promises and win the favor of the 22 Republican senators who last week wrote him a letter urging him to do so.

I will be announcing my decision on Paris Accord, Thursday at 3:00 P.M. The White House Rose Garden. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 1, 2017

Trump has saidhe believes climate change is a hoaxinvented by the Chinese to compromise U.S. manufacturing.
The claim seems outlandish, but more than a third of white evangelicals agree that climate change probably isn’t occurring.
Among white evangelical Christians ― more than 80 percent of whom threw their support behind Trump in the election ― climate change is an issue of li…

At Pro-Trade Think Tank, Wilbur Ross Soothes Business Fears Over NAFTA Talks

WASHINGTON ― Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said that a commitment to “do no harm” would guide efforts to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and that elements of the now-defunct Trans-Pacific Partnership would serve as a “starting point” in talks with Canada and Mexico.
The remarks on Wednesday at the Bipartisan Policy Center, which supports international trade agreements, struck a marked contrast with President Donald Trump’s nationalist bromides on trade. The comments will undoubtedly allay the fears of big-business interests that support NAFTA, some of which were well-represented in the room.
But Ross’ pronouncements are also liable to vindicate the fears of liberal trade skeptics already worried that the Trump administration’s version of revising NAFTA will amount to simply expanding NAFTA’s reach to new sectors of the economy. That runs counter to their wishes for measures more likely to save the jobs of less-educated workers, whether in manufacturing plants or cal…

Trump's EPA Chief Aided Polluters For Years. Now Suddenly He Says The Mess Is A Priority

WASHINGTON — If you listen to Environmental Protection Agency AdministratorScott Pruitt, the biggest environmental problem facing the United States isn’t climate change (he doesn’t think that’s real, anyway), or lead-tainted drinking water orbrain-damaging pesticides. It’s that Barack Obama didn’t clean up themore than 1,300most contaminated and hazardous sites across the country.
AFox News headline earlier this monthdeclared that Pruitt was here to clean up the Obama administration’s “toxic mess.” The former Oklahoma attorney general would have the American people believe that what the Superfund program really needs isn’t funding, it’s the right attitude.
“It’s not a matter of money,”Pruitt told Fox News. “It’s a matter of leadership and attitude and management.”
Pruitt has been fixated on the EPA’s Superfund, which is responsible for cleaning up highlycontaminated sites, since taking over as agency chief in February. He’s called it “absolutely essential” and has repeatedly stressed tha…

How Did This Happen?

For those of us lucky to be awake Tuesday night, for the semi-frequent late-night Twitter outburst from President Donald Trump, we received the gift of “covfefe.” Yes, Trump’s attempt to type the word “coverage” went somewhat awry, giving the Twitter wags a good chuckle before winking out for a good night’s sleep. You had the funny feeling that there would be a high-level meeting the next morning to “spin” this misspelling as a masterstroke of political letters (and that is apparently what happened), but that would surely be that. Right?
Wrong! Sometime between Trump’s tweet and the next morning, a think piece was penned, positioning “covfefe” as the unified field theorem of Donald Trump. Who wrote it? You know who wrote it. The man who writes the takes that make the whole world groan: New CNN hire Chris Cillizza.

This story is really super important to him!

The White House had from 12:07 this morning until right now to come up with a good answer on "covfefe."
