The Attacks on Bernie Are Further Proof That ‘Victim' Hillary Is Not Good at This
A Hillary Clinton hot take is in the headlines again: According to her, "nobody likes" presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders.Earlier this week, The Hollywood Reporter published an interview with Clinton, a promotional piece for the upcoming Hulu documentary about her political career, in which the former secretary of state was asked about a statement she'd made during the documentary.The interviewer, Lacey Rose, asked: In the doc, you're brutally honest on Sanders: "He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It's all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it." That assessment still hold?Hillary replied, simply: "Yes, it does."Next, Rose asked Clinton whether or not she would support Sanders if he were to become the Democratic nominee. Clinton said: "I'm not going to go there yet" — and then proceeded to attack Sanders's supporters for what she calls their "relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women," accusing Bernie himself of having "not only permitted" "this culture," but also seeming "to really be very much supporting it."Later, continuing the discussion about what Clinton sees as Bernie's "pattern" of sexism, Clinton offered as evidence the fact that Sanders had told her that she was "unqualified" when they were both running for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

Lindsey Graham is offering unsolicited legal advice to Trump's team
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a juror in President Trump's impeachment trial, is offering free legal advice to his counsel, if they want to accept it.So far, the House impeachment managers have "done a good job" of "painting ... a tapestry, taking a series of events and telling a story," Graham told reporters on Thursday. When Trump's legal team starts delivering his defense on Saturday, they will "start pulling on the threads."Graham also thinks Trump's attorneys will need to shift the focus to former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, and is in the center of a debunked conspiracy theory being peddled by Trump allies, including Rudy Giuliani. Graham said Trump's team needs to "really go hard at the idea that when they tell you there's not a scintilla of evidence, groundless, baseless, phony accusations regarding the Bidens, I would challenge that very hard."More stories from theweek.com Democrats walked right into Mitch McConnell's trap Texas legalized hemp, and Austin just responded to the resulting chaos by effectively decriminalizing weed The Oprah's Book Club controversy, explained

One day after a vigilante group revealed that it was using children as young as 8 as "recruits" for armed defense patrols, Mexico's president said Thursday that drug cartels too are recruiting ever-younger kids. The whole issue has sparked a debate in Mexico over the use of children in armed confrontations, with rights groups saying the practice threatens not only kids' safety, but their mental health. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that because social programs are giving more youths opportunities to study or work, drug cartels are having trouble finding gunmen, leading them to recruit children.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly star in Holmes & Watson as the legendary detectives in a funny and surprising take on the team's pairing. Really, though, it's more about the chemistry between the actors, who previously starred together in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers, as it is about any sort of mystery. (By the way, Reilly also appeared in a cameo role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which featured Ferrell in the starring role.) Two upcoming comedies offer new different, surprising takes on material that has been previously told. The third is a sequel that may be the final installment in a long-running series and may offer a big surprise in its resolution. Here's what we know about three movies that we hope will amuse us...
