Four Republicans Cut Profiles in Courage and Condemn Trump's Hateful Words
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyPraise is due to the four Republicans who joined Democrats in voting for Monday's House resolution which "strongly condemns President Donald Trump's racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color." 

The impetus for this resolution, of course, was Trump's call for four progressive women of color—the so-called "Squad"—to "go back" to where they "originally came from." 

Conservatives might not agree with The Squad's politics, but everyone should agree that Trump's words crossed a line.

How Justice John Paul Stevens Became a Liberal Hero
Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call/GettyTwo months after publishing his 531-page memoir, retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens passed away Tuesday at the age of 99.

Justice Stevens' life spans nearly half of American history. He was at the Democratic National Convention in 1932 when FDR proposed the New Deal, and he wrote the Supreme Court opinion in 1997 that denied President Bill Clinton immunity in a sexual harassment suit brought by Paula Jones. 

And he was extraordinarily active right up until the end of his life, weighing in on Justice Brett Kavanaugh (disqualified due to his behavior at his confirmation hearings), gun control (D.C. v. Heller was "the most clearly incorrect decision that the Supreme Court announced during my tenure on the bench"), and six amendments he'd like to see added to the Constitution.

Kris Kobach: I Might Still Support Trump if He Came Out and Said ‘I'm a Racist'
Republican Senate candidate Kris Kobach left CNN anchor Chris Cuomo gobsmacked Tuesday night when he had to seriously think about whether he'd continue to support Donald Trump for president if he openly admitted to being a racist, saying he'd have to weigh who Trump was running against.

Appearing on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time to discuss the House of Representatives vote to condemn Trump for the racist comments he made about four Democratic congresswomen of color, Kobach refused to agree with Cuomo that Trump purposely picked a "race battle" with the so-called "Squad."

"He didn't pick a race battle," the former Kansas secretary of state said. "He picked a battle and the left and you choose to characterize it as a race battle."

Democrats Can't Even Condemn Trump Racism Without Infighting
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Getty/Brendan SmialowskiHitting back at Donald Trump's latest tirade was supposed to be easy for House Democrats: a show of unity in criticizing the president's racists tweets leading to a formal condemnation of his targeting of four Democratic freshman lawmakers.

But as with most attempts to show disapproval with the president, Tuesday's efforts proved to be ham-fisted. House Democrats formally condemned Trump for his social media missive. But the path getting there was complicated by internal disarray, and overshadowed by the absence of an agreed-upon strategy that culminated in a massive blow-up on the House floor, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused of violating House rules in her attempts to peg the president as a racist. 

It was, in the grand scheme of things, a bureaucratic misstep. But for many Democrats it symbolized something far more: yet another illustration of the party's ineptitude and, ultimately, timidity in confronting Trump.

Stephen Colbert Mocks Trump's Lame Clapback at The Squad: ‘Racism Is Your Brand'
For the second consecutive night, Donald Trump's racist attacks against the four congresswomen known as the "Squad" dominated Stephen Colbert's Late Show monologue. This time, he took aim at the president's assertion Tuesday morning that he doesn't "have a Racist bone" in his body. 

"OK, I'm going to stop you right there," Colbert replied. "We've seen your body. I'm not sure there are any bones." (Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah both happened to make near-identical jokes on their shows Tuesday night.) 

"And second, you have said a lot of racist things," Colbert continued, getting more to the point. "You demanded the execution of the Central Park Five, who were innocent, you said Barack Obama was from Kenya, you wanted to ban all Muslims, you said Mexicans were murderers. Racism is your brand!"

House Votes to Condemn Trump's Racist Comments
Alex Wong/GettyThe House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a resolution formally condemning President Donald Trump for his racist attacks on four Democratic members of Congress — a vote that largely came down on party lines after a raucous afternoon of parliamentary squabbling between Democrats and Republicans.

Just four Republicans and one independent, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, joined with all House Democrats in the 240-187 vote to condemn Trump's remarks.

Sponsored by Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), who was born in Poland, the resolution largely reads as a tribute to America's history of immigration and the politicians who celebrated that history. On the final page it "strongly condemns President Donald Trump's racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color."

CNN Invites White Supremacist Richard Spencer to Talk About Trump's Racist Tweets
CNN interviewed white supremacist Richard Spencer during a Tuesday segment on President Donald Trump's racist tweets, in another example of a news outlet inadvertently giving a large platform to white supremacists. 

The segment on Jake Tapper's The Lead covered neo-Nazis' support for Trump's racist attacks on four progressive congresswomen of color. The spot included an interview with Spencer who said Trump is playing a "con game" and that his attacks were not racist enough.

"He gives us nothing outside of racist tweets," he said. "And by racist tweets, I mean tweets that are meaningless and cheap and express the kind of sentiments you might hear from your drunk uncle while he's watching [Sean] Hannity."

After a Far-Out Debate, Marianne Williamson Returns to Her ‘Soul Base'
Scott Olson/Getty ImagesOn Tuesday evening, a crowd of several hundred people milled around the art-deco lobby of the Saban Theatre, an "entertainment industry temple" in Beverly Hills, surrounded by blue light and a floor full of pink balloons. At least three attendees wore flower crowns. A fourth sported Mickey Mouse ears decked out as giant purple orbs. They had come to see Marianne Williamson, activist, author, friend of Oprah, metaphysical guru, longtime lecturer on a "spiritual psychotherapy" guidebook allegedly dictated by Jesus, and meme-ified 2020 presidential candidate. 

In the aftermath of a Cher Horowitz-ish debate performance, Williamson emerged as a half-loved, half-reviled, and mostly-ignored political contender. But she is at home in Los Angeles. The Politics of Love author grew up in Houston, but moved to southern California as a teenager for a two-year stint at Pomona. Later, Williamson lived for decades in Los Angeles. She taught at the Philosophical Research Society, a non-profit archive dedicated to the study of "wisdom literature;" opened a hospice-like support center called the Los Angeles Center for the Living; founded Project Angel Food, an L.A. non-profit aimed at AIDS patients that delivered free meals; and wrote her first book, A Return to Love, which spent 39 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list under "Advice, How To, and Miscellaneous." After a few years out of town, Williamson moved back in 2009, and ran as an independent for California's 33rd Congressional district in 2014. Out of 16 contenders, she came in fourth. 

That's all in the past, though--a relic of 20th century rationalism and externally or

1,000 Protesters With Jewish Group Block Entrance to ICE Headquarters for Hours
Credit: Never Again ActionAt least 1,000 Jews, immigrants, and activists protested outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Washington, D.C., headquarters on Tuesday afternoon, shutting down all points of entry for several hours. 

"Never again means close the camps," the protesters chanted in sweltering, 95-degree heat, as they stood together with linked arms outside the doors of the building. They hung an enormous banner over the entry ramp to ICE headquarters that read, "Pelosi, Never Again Is Now." 

The demonstrators, several of whom were arrested Tuesday afternoon, were part of an event organized by Never Again Action, a Jewish activist group that's been protesting outside ICE facilities around America, and Movimiento Cosecha, an organization fighting for undocumented immigrants. Their goal was to disrupt ICE's daily work, and they surrounded the headquarters at 1 p.m., hoping to grab people getting back from lunch.

MS-13 Members in Los Angeles Hacked Victims to Death With Machetes: Prosecutors
OSCAR RIVERAMembers of the notorious MS-13 gang in Los Angeles have been charged in connection with the murders of seven people over the last two years—including the dismemberment of a rival gang member whose heart was cut out, federal authorities allege in a 12-count indictment unsealed Tuesday.

A total of 22 people linked to the Fulton clique, a faction of the gang based in the San Fernando Valley, have been indicted by a grand jury on several charges, including racketeering and murder, for allegedly committing 200 criminal acts in several states over nine years. Of the over two dozen accused gang members, 20 of them have been charged with murder. 

While the MS-13 members and associates engaged in common gang behavior—such as narcotics sales, robberies, and extortion schemes—they also used "horrific violence" to control members and intimidate their rivals in Los Angeles, the indictment alleges.

Fleabag! Schitt's Creek! Are the Emmy Nominations Actually Good This Year?!
Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastOur annual primal scream at the announcement of the Emmy nominations has somehow, against all expectations, transformed into a cry of joy. Could it be? The Emmy nominations were actually good? 

The comedy side especially, with a surprise trifecta of major noms for Schitt's Creek and its stars Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy, is a welcome surprise, as was the run of the board from favorites Fleabag and Russian Doll. Sure, it's a little frustrating just how much Game of Thrones dominated the drama side. It was inevitable, but still. 

And the inevitability is the point: There are over 500 TV series vying for between five and eight slots in each category, and a voting body of 25,000 boneheads with historically patterned preferences and reliably peculiar whims. At this point, a deserved candidate scoring a nod is more of a miracle than a justified achievement.

Elizabeth Warren Grills Trump Pentagon Pick Over His Defense Lobbyist Past
Congressional Quarterly/GettyPresident Donald Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Defense told a Senate committee on Tuesday that he would not agree to recuse himself, if confirmed, from decisions affecting the defense contracting giant for which he previously served as a top Washington lobbyist.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a Democratic candidate for the 2020 presidential nomination, acting Pentagon chief Mark Esper said he would not commit to steering clear of matters involving Raytheon, his former employer and the nation's third largest military contractor.

"On the advice of my ethics folks at the Pentagon, the career professionals, no, their recommendation is not to,"  Esper told Warren at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday. "The belief is the screening process I have in place, all the rules and regulations and laws, are sufficient."

Neo-Nazis' Air-to-Air Missile: An Explosive New Clue to Salvini's Intrigues With the Russians
Tino Romano/APROME—Italian police say they knew they were onto something big when they caught two Neo-Nazi sympathizers discussing the latest weapon in their arsenal on a tapped WhatsApp thread. And when the cops started seeing chatter the group was moving the weapon close to an airport near the northern city of Turin, they pounced. 

They found a massive French-made Matra Super 530 F air-to-air missile originally purchased by the military of Qatar, a rich little emirate on the Arabian Peninsula. "During the operation, an air-to-air missile in perfect working order and used by the Qatari army was seized," Italian police said in a statement. They also confirmed that they stumbled upon the find when they were investigating far-right Italians "who have fought in Ukraine's Donbass region against the [pro-Russian] separatists."

But the situation is murky, to say the least, and it now seems possible those fighting alongside the pro-Russian forces in the Ukraine  were the ones who actually hoped to get their hands on the missile. Under the same investigation in the same area of Italy on July 3, two Italians and a Moldovan who had been picked up earlier this summer were convicted on terrorism charges. The three had recently returned from fighting on the pro-Russian side in Ukraine. It seems unlikely this was pure coincidence.

Facebook Clashes With Congress Over Its ‘Dangerous' Cryptocurrency Plans
Alex WongTwo days of hearings investigating Facebook's intention to create a digital currency began on a testy note Tuesday morning.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) fired an opening salvo at the social network in opposition to the establishment of the Libra digital token: 

"Facebook is dangerous. Now, Facebook might not intend to be dangerous — but they certainly don't respect the power of the technologies they are playing with," he said.

Kellyanne Conway Snaps Back at Reporter: ‘What's Your Ethnicity?'
When White House reporter Andrew Feinberg posed a question to Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday about the president's racist tweets against the four congresswomen known as the "Squad," he found himself taken aback by her response. 

Feinberg, a reporter for the website BeltwayBreakfast.com, asked the White House counselor which countries President Donald Trump was referring to when he suggested Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar—all U.S. citizens—should "go back" to where they came from. 

Instead of answering that question, Conway asked him, "What's your ethnicity?"

New York Times Reporter Leaves Following Implosion of Trump Taxes Team
Jennifer Graylock/GettyOne of the reporters on the New York Times' Pulitzer-winning exposé of President Donald Trump's finances is leaving the publication following a falling out with the paper's investigative team. 

David Barstow, one of three authors of last year's blockbuster investigation, is leaving the paper at the end of the month to lead the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism's investigative reporting program. 

"We are sorry to see him go but we hope that we get to work together on future projects," Executive Editor Dean Baquet said in a memo to staff. "And we think he will be a great teacher for a new generation of investigative journalists."

Kellyanne Conway: AOC and ‘The Squad' Represent ‘Dark Underbelly' of America
Defending President Trump's repeated racist attacks against a group of Democratic congresswomen of color, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway claimed on Tuesday that the so-called "Squad" represents a "dark underbelly in this country" and that some of the lawmakers are "palling around with terrorists."

Moments after Republican House leaders held a news conference in which they supported the president and announced they wouldn't back a Democratic motion to censure Trump for his racist tweets, Conway appeared on Fox News' America's Newsroom to discuss the latest developments in this multi-day saga.

"The Democratic response is very predictable," she said. "You hardly need to cover it. Racism, xenophobia and it is getting tired. These four that cause trouble in their own caucus were under fire a couple days ago by senior Democrats, elected officials."

Johannes Eisele/GettyAn attorney representing Jeffrey Epstein accusers said Tuesday that at least one woman has come forward to say she was abused while the financier was on work release as part of his lenient 2007 plea deal.

Lawyer Brad Edwards said Epstein was allowed to have visitors while he was supposed to be working during the 13-month sentence.

"It was not for some business arrangement and it was for... improper sexual contact," Edwards said, adding that the new accusers said they were under 21, though they may not have been minors.

Justice Department Won't Charge Cop Who Killed Eric Garner, Saying It Can't Prove He Meant Harm
Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/APAlmost five years to the day after a New York City police officer strangled to death Eric Garner, whose last words "I can't breathe" became a national rallying cry, the Justice Department said it will not prosecute his killer.

The department declined to charge NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo with violating Garner's civil rights, announcing the decision one day before the statute of limitations runs out. Officials said Tuesday that Attorney General William Barr sided with federal prosecutors in New York to not prosecute Pantaleo, against the recommendation of the department's Civil Rights Division that wanted to "move forward with prosecution."

"After an exhaustive investigation the department of justice has reached the conclusion that insufficient evidence exists to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the police officers who arrested Eric Garner in Staten Island...acted in violation of the Federal Criminal Civil Rights Act. Consequently the investigation into this incident has been closed," said U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue, the federal prosecutor overseeing the case in New York.

Prosecutors said they could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pantaleo acted with a "guilty mind" during the chokehold that killed Garner, the standard necessary to obtain a conviction, a senior department official told reporters Tuesday.

Greek Son of Priest Held in Murder of American Scientist
Makis Kartsonakis/ReutersA 27-year-old married farmer who is the son of an Orthodox priest has allegedly confessed to the heinous murder of 59-year-old American scientist Suzanne Eaton on the island of Crete. 

Eaton's tortured body was found in a Nazi-era bunker on the picturesque island this month, and it appears she did not know her alleged killer.

The man, a father of two, confessed to first hitting Eaton with his car to immobilize her and then stuffing her in the trunk of his car before dragging her into the bunker where he raped and killed her-or perhaps killed her and then raped her—according to General Regional Police Director of Crete Constantine Lagoudakis at a press conference Tuesday.

Discovering Café Tournon-the Hidden Gem of African American Paris

Just like every other café in the city, you can order a comforting espresso or a glass of cheap Beaujolais wine, but it's not the drinks that make the establishment special but rather its rich history. For decades, it was a hangout and refuge of African American artists and musicians.

If you engage in a little small talk with one of the waiters, before you know it, you'll have in your hands framed photos of the Harlem Renaissance painter Beauford Delaney and the legendary jazz bandleader Duke Ellington.

How Can You Tell Which Condom Works Better?
Every male latex condom you buy at the store has been rigorously tested for even the tiniest holes—pulled over a phallic piece of metal called a "mandril" and subjected to an intense electric field. Since rubber doesn't conduct electricity, and latex condoms are made with natural rubber, if any electricity at all passes through the condom to the mandril, the condom will be scrapped.

Beyond this, random samplings of every type of latex condom are tested in myriad ways to meet international standards. They'll be stretched to the breaking point with an air pump, or a cross section of a condom will be pulled apart on a machine to see how far it can stretch. Others will be filled with water and tested for leaks. Condoms that fail to pass any of these tests won't make it to market. Testing requirements for condoms in the United States are more strenuous than many other products—medical gloves, for example. 

These standards are determined by an international group of experts, according to Milla Impola, marketing communications manager for the Boston-based condom manufacturing and testing company Global Protection Corp. "Such guidelines include, for instance, how much air and water a condom must be able to hold without bursting or leaking," said Impola.

Why Are We Here? This Nano Spacecraft Plan Might Find Answers One Solar System Over
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Breakthrough StarshotWhen Philip Lubin was a little boy, he would stare at the night sky and wonder where it all came from.

Decades later, Lubin, now a physicist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has a plan to get some answers. And he doesn't mind that it might take several more decades before it delivers its first data.

In fact, Lubin is counting on it taking that long. That's the only way humanity could afford it.

Trump Is Now Down to Fine People on One Side--His
Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/GettyThe dark heart of Donald Trump is efficient. With a few tweets before golf, he threw gasoline on the internal fight between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her freshman renegades known as the Squad. At the same time, he excited his base with the stark "go back where you came from"—the broken and crime-infested s-hole countries he presumed were their homes—rather than the American cities where three were born, with the fourth raised as a naturalized citizen in Minnesota.   

He fit in a full 18, and when there was no criticism from Republicans in the interim, he did what any red-blooded racist would: He tweeted again to make it perfectly clear that not one of those new members of Congress was his type.  

It's all in a day's work, or of sport and TV watching. No one thought he was just fun-tweeting on Sunday, but just to be sure, on Monday Trump took questions at an event to highlight American manufacturers on the hallowed ground of the South Lawn of the White House. He shunned a dog whistle for a bullhorn to go further than his racist assessment of who was to blame for Charlottesville. Back then he said there were fine people on both sides.

The Southern Strategy Is Back, With a Vengeance. Here's How Democrats Beat It.
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyRemember in The Untouchables, the Brian De Palma film, how whenever the good guys discovered some new nefarious thing Al Capone had done, Malone (Sean Connery) would stare at Kevin Costner's Eliot Ness and ask: "And what are you prepared to do about it?"

That's the question now for the Democrats, about Donald Trump's racism. What are they prepared to do about it?

The Democratic Party I've watched over the last 25 or so years would conclude: Do nothing. Let Trump damage himself. And let's not touch race. It's a third rail.

Does Melania ‘Really Care'? In Her Birthplace Women Blast Her ‘Shameful' Complicity With Trump Agenda.
Phtoo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos Getty/ReutersLJUBLJANA, Slovenia—What were first faint rumors turned into palpable buzz: Melania Trump, the most famous daughter of Slovenia, might finally visit her homeland. Her father, Viktor Knavs, was seen here driving a white Maybach with Florida plates between the capital and Melania's hometown of Sevnica preparing the way, it was said, for a spectacular homecoming. 

But as the rumors multiplied, so did a widespread sense of disappointment that America's first lady has not been back to her motherland for 15 years. 

Several of Slovenia's leading women decided the time might be ripe to invite Melania Knavs Trump back here for a bit of dialogue about some major global issues. Members of Femmes Sans Frontières (Women Without Borders) brainstormed at the elegant villa of Jerca Legan, the organization's president, in the old town of Ljubljana. They were environmentalists, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, bureaucrats, lawyers and business developers, who decided to issue a formal invitation.

Trump Takes a Dump on the American Dream
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyDonald Trump's performance these last few days show how powerful a man devoted to political and racial arson can be when he is beyond shame, reason, and dignity and possessed with the power and platform of the presidency. 

In the scope of a half-dozen tweets, President Grievance managed to ignite a racial brouhaha designed to frame 2020, push his white-nat-adjacent audience into paroxysms of joy, and take a massive dump on the American dream. Trump was due for one of his periodic dog-whistles to the alt-reich segment of his base, and he delivered in spades.

The outburst came after a series of humiliating political losses in recent weeks. A failed G20 summit that resulted in a sloppy photo-op handjob for Kim Jong Un and zero progress toward disarmament was followed by an episode of John Bolton's Guns of August in the Persian Gulf.

Ilhan Omar to Maddow: Trump Is ‘Corrupt,' ‘Inept,' and the ‘Worst President We've Had'
MSNBCHours after Rep. Ilhan Omar and the rest of the so-called Squad hit back after being subjected to two days of President Trump's racist attacks, the Minnesota Democrat appeared on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show to follow up on their fiery Monday press conference.

Following a series of racist tweets on Sunday in which the president called for Democratic congresswomen of color to "go back" to where "they came" from, the president doubled down on Monday. Singling out Omar, Trump falsely claimed that the Muslim congresswoman supported al Qaeda while further accusing her of "hating Jews." He also brought up remarks she made earlier this year about the 9/11 terror attacks that sparked intense conservative outrage, prompting an increase in death threats against Omar.

After noting during Monday's presser that "every single person who's brown or black in this country has heard" Trump's call to leave the country, Omar was asked by Rachel Maddow how she was able to absorb the president's racist attacks.

Beto Going Bust: The Once Great Dem Hope Is Among the Many 2020ers Struggling for Cash
Josh Brasted/FilmMagic/GettyAs a general rule in election politics, the better a candidate's fundraising number, the earlier he or she will release them. Which is why former Rep. Beto O'Rourke's (D-TX) campaign released his second round of fundraising totals at 9 p.m. the night of the latest filing deadline. 

O'Rourke reported raising $3.6 million in the second quarter, a dramatic drop from his first-quarter showing, when he brought in more than $9.3 million in just 18 days. It was a remarkable blow for a candidate whose historic fundraising effort during his 2018 challenge to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) made him one of the more anticipated candidates of the field. And all his campaign could do in the aftermath was to try its best to insist that he wasn't sliding closer to also-ran status. 

"We always need more, but we have enough to execute our strategy—for now," wrote campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon.

Seth Meyers Goes Off on Anyone Who Won't Call Trump ‘Racist'
NBCSeth Meyers pulled no punches during his inevitable "Closer Look" at President Donald Trump's racist tweets against Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley on Monday night. 

"It's been obvious from the very first moment he stepped onto the political stage that Donald Trump is a racist," the Late Night host began. "And that racism is at the core of his political ideology. It's not a side dish, it's the main course." 

After listing off some of Trump's most racist moments, from birtherism to saying a federal judge couldn't be fair to him because he was of Mexican descent, Meyers moved on to Trump's "stunningly racist attack on four progressive women of color in Congress."

‘The Rolling Stone' Means Well, but Ignores Uganda's Recent LGBT History
Courtesy Jeremy DanielChris Urch's play, The Rolling Stone, written in 2013, is set in Kampala, Uganda, in 2010. You don't know that immediately (unless you have read the program). You might extrapolate that you are in an African country which is very anti-gay because we meet a pastor, Joe (James Udom) and a power-focused member of his church, Mama (Myra Lucretia Taylor) all too willing to stoke homophobia to keep the congregation numbers steady.

That homophobia is being fanned by the publications of the names and pictures of allegedly gay people by the newspaper Rolling Stone, as really happened at the time.

The complication is Joe's brother Dembe (Ato Blankson-Wood) is gay, and in a secret relationship with a Ugandan-Irish doctor Sam (Robert Gilbert). Dembe's twin sister Wummie (Latoya Edwards) doesn't officially know the truth. Naome (Adenike Thomas), Mama's daughter, knows a lot more than she is saying; indeed, a traumatic incident has meant she cannot say anything.

Tucker Carlson Claims CNN Is Funding Antifa: ‘They Are Literally Promoting Violence'
Fox NewsFox News host Tucker Carlson took his long-running war against rival network CNN to another level on Monday night by accusing the cable news channel of funding far-left organization antifa and holding them responsible for a recent domestic terrorism attack on a Washington ICE facility.

Over the weekend, 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen was fatally shot by Tacoma police after he threw "lit objects" at vehicles and buildings at an immigration detention center, causing one car to burst in flames. According to authorities, Van Spronsen was attempting to set a large propane tank on fire when he was shot.

During Carlson's Monday night primetime broadcast, the conservative commentator first took issue with CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon mildly defending antifa in the past, calling it "pure 200-proof propaganda." He then noted that the group Van Spronsen was a member of, The Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club, had been featured earlier this year on W. Kamau Bell's travel show United Shades of America.

Team Trump Shrugs Off Backlash to Latest Racist Tirade: Just ‘Another Day at Work'
Photo Illustration by Kelly Caminero/The Daily Beast/GettyAt the dawn of the Trump era, any given nutty, off-color presidential tweet had the high potential to set the White House on fire and upturn numerous senior aides' schedules. On Monday morning, however, all was calm, amid one of the more overtly racist attacks of Donald Trump's presidency: a declaration that four minority congresswomen—three for them born in the U.S.—return to the countries from which they came. 

According to two people familiar with the situation, the president's reelection campaign wasn't busying itself gaming out a comms or damage-control strategy, beyond a few tweets that focused on lashing out at Democrats and media outlets. Neither was the Republican National Committee. Inside the White House, senior officials—who in the past two years have developed thick calluses to Trump's social media outbursts—mostly shrugged off the latest firestorm. According to one top aide, it was merely "another day at work."

"I'd say we are taking defending the president seriously, but I don't think anyone is freaking out," another senior White House official noted.

Trevor Noah Compares Trump to Hitler After Racist Tweets Against Congresswomen
Trevor Noah returned to The Daily Show on Monday after a two-week break and jumped directly into the only political news story right now: President Donald Trump's racist tweets suggesting four congresswomen of color should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

"I don't know what's worse," Noah told viewers, "the fact that the president thought it's acceptable to say ‘go back' to where you came from or the fact that he said it to people who are already where they came from." 

"You know, it's almost like in Trump's head, you can't be a person of color and an American," the host continued, before pivoting to a joke. "Which is strange, because he of all people should know that you can be two things at the same time. I mean, he's bald and has a full head of hair. It doesn't make sense, but we accept it."

Michael Flynn's Ex-Business Partner Points the Finger at Him in Court
Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/GettyIf there is a question of who worked on behalf of the Turkish government to influence the 2016 Donald Trump campaign, then the court should look no further than former national security adviser Michael Flynn, lawyers for Bijan Kian, the Iranian-American businessman and former Flynn partner, told jurors in the Eastern District of Virginia Monday. 

Kian is charged with two felonies—illegally lobbying on behalf of the Turkish government and conspiring covertly to influence U.S. politics about Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric who is now living in Pennsylvania. He faces a maximum of 15 years in prison if convicted. 

But Kian's team of attorneys said in their opening statements Monday that their client "did not conspire with anyone" to work on behalf of the Turkish government in the U.S. When questioning the Turkish government's influence operations in the U.S., the jury should look at the newly announced cache of evidence the government has on Flynn, said attorney Bob Trout. Kian isn't referenced in any of it, Trout said.

The bare-bones accounting estimates his homes in the U.S. Virgin Islands, one of them on his private island, are worth $85 million.

The financier also listed an $8.6 million Paris apartment, a $12 million Palm Beach estate, a $17 million New Mexico ranch, and his Manhattan mansion—which he says is worth $55 million but prosecutors say is worth $77 million.

‘The Bachelorette' Is No Longer Hiding Its Christianity. Why Hannah Brown's Jesus Moment Marks a Major Shift.
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos Getty/ABCOn a recent episode of The Bachelorette, lead Hannah Brown tells suitor and contestant Luke Parker, "I have had sex, and, honestly, Jesus still loves me." (Jesus was not available for comment.)

Each season has a major turning point. Colton Underwood jumping the fence. Arie Luyendyk Jr. dumping his winner for his runner-up. Ben Higgins telling two women he loves them. And Brown's signature moment—the thing fans will likely repeat back to her for years to come—seems to be her sex and Jesus declaration.

What she said is unlike anything we've ever seen from The Bachelor franchise. In years past, the show has danced around the topic of religion—or lack thereof—which is odd, considering that when picking a spouse in a matter of a few weeks, it's sure to come up.

Big Tech Will Face Congress to Argue It Doesn't Have Too Much Power
Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/GettySilicon Valley's best and brightest will be busy this week in a trio of tech-centric hearings on Capitol Hill. The goal for these reps personifying the biggest of Big Tech: Act as tiny as possible. 

Tech's best possible outcome is one in which its representatives in Congress trot off the Hill looking lightly chastened and deferential, Congressional egos adequately inflated. In front of lawmakers, the game plan for these companies is to act small—even as they pursue their respective manifest destinies, reshaping the world at any cost.

The main events will be a pair of hearings examining the Facebook's new digital currency, Libra. The company's cryptocurrency lead David Marcus will argue that its new cryptocurrency Libra—a "giant leap forward"—poses not only no threat to existing financial institutions (why launch it then?) but that the project is barely Facebook's at all. Instead, the company has cobbled together something it calls the Libra Association, a group of blockchain and financial entities forming a "wholly independent organization."
