    Kelly bans Omarosa Manigault from some WH meetings
    09/09/17 05:44 PM EDT

    President Trump’s Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly is reportedly freezing out aides to the president he deems unfit for serious meetings, including aide Omarosa Manigault.

    The New York Times reported on Friday that Kelly has created a “no-fly list” of aides who previously wandered into meetings unannounced and uninvited, who no longer have that power. Manigault, the Times reported, is chief among them.

    In charge of this list is Kirstjen Nielsen, Kelly’s longtime aide, who was recently appointed as an assistant to the president and his principal deputy. Nielsen is described in the article as “brusque” and “no-nonsense,” and in charge of wrangling aides on Trump’s outer circle.

    lol Kamala told him straight up while others went through intermediaries.

    Just as Turner was complaining about the DNC, a range of Democratic senators and their top political staffers were closely following a string of stories that quoted Sanders supporters criticizing Harris.

    In one interview, the co-founder of a group called People for Bernie said Harris was being anointed as the candidate “of extremely wealthy and out-of-touch Democratic Party donors.”

    After a handful of such stories, Harris herself spoke with Sanders on the Senate floor about the criticism, said multiple Democrats briefed on the exchange.

    Unseeded Sloane Stephens rolls to U.S. Open women’s title with 6-3, 6-0 win over No. 15 Madison Keys

    By Washington Post Staff September 9 at 5:22 PM
    Stephens, the 83rd-ranked player in the world who reached the final after dispatching Venus Williams on Thursday night, made quick work of fellow American Keys to claim her first career Grand Slam victory.

    This is a developing story. It will be updated.

  7. The saddest thing in the world for a parent is losing a child. I feel bad for him. He piled on the pain for Trayvon Martin’s parents. Eric Bolling supported George Zimmerman auctioning the gun that killed Trayvon. Why be so cruel?

    Eric Chase Bolling died hours after Fox News announced his father’s departure from the network.

    The son of Fox News Channel anchor Eric Bolling committed suicide, TMZ has learned, hours after his father was forced out of the network.

    Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … 19-year-old Eric Chase Bolling, Jr. took his life Friday afternoon in Boulder, CO, where he attended school. We’re told it was off campus.

    His dad and FNC parted company after the co-host of “The Five” allegedly sent lewd text messages to co-workers along with photos of his genitals.

    Bolling vowed to clear his name, but the timing certainly suggests it was all too much to handle for his son.

      I guess he didn’t expect he would ever be the one suffering the loss of a young son. Now he is. And I hope he reflects on what happened and uses this to become a better man.

      Mercy, Leon Ford was shot five fucking times by a cop for a traffic stop/

      Leon survived- and did Ya’ll notice THE LIGHT emanating from him.

      It’s the LIGHT that these evil Mofos are trying their hardest to snuff out, that goodness, compassion, and love.

      • yahtzeebutterfly says:

        No one can take that LIGHT away from him. He is powerful and an inspiration with his deep soul, love and insight…and his hope for a better tomorrow when he said:

        “I believe there’s going to be a time in America where nobody’s going to have to think twice about life or death when they are pulled over by a police officer.”

    These are the words I want to hear from Democrats in 2018 and 2020:

    Police Brutality.

    Until we talk about this honestly and at the national level this will never stop.

    Sure, there will be a fight. That’s too damn bad.

    This is a human rights issue and this is the 21st century.

      What a contrast with the 2012 police killing of Milton Hall who simply had a pen knife:
      “Police officers in Saginaw, MI fired more than 45 shots at Jewel Hall’s son Milton. Despite abundant evidence that officers showed a reckless disregard for Milton’s life, the U.S. Justice Department did not charge any of the officers responsible for the killing.

      “In Washington D.C., the ACLU of Michigan is playing Jewel Hall’s testimony at a hearing before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights on “Reports of Racism in the Justice System of the United States.”
