AOC Fires Back After Laura Ingraham Makes Fun Of Her "Latina Thing"

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a horsewoman of the apocalypse and she is now focusing on the story that really matters: how the New York congresswoman pronounces her own name.Ingraham, who once said she was learning Spanish for her Guatemalan daughter, asked conservative lawyer Joe diGenova during a segment on her show, Ingraham Angle, whether he had noticed that Ocasio-Cortez "put on" an accent when introducing herself."She does the Latina thing where sh...

My Partner & I Make $165,000 A Year — & We Saved $65,000 To Buy A House

Nearly 10 years ago (!), I found myself in pretty much the same situation as the woman featured on this week's episode of Money Diaries: The Podcast: My fiancé, now husband, Ken, and I were trying to simultaneously plan a wedding and buy our first apartment in Brooklyn. It was stressful to say the least. And two years into being a mother who also holds down a full-time job, I still have to say that first-time home-buying mixed with wedding planning is more insane than raising an infant.I also d...

What Ivanka & Her Dad Have In Common: Stealing Other People's Ideas

The first daughter and White House advisor's schedule isn't public, but we'll keep you posted on her goings-on every week.One of the reasons we regularly write about Ivanka Trump is because her position actually comes with a lot of power. As a presidential advisor to her father in the most chaotic White House ever, she reportedly has a great deal of freedom to set her own agenda.

A Wave Of New Bills Would Ban Abortion Before Most Women Even Know They're Pregnant

While President Donald Trump is banking on the power of inflammatory anti-abortion rhethoric to help him win the White House again, conservative lawmakers in state legislatures across the country are laserfocused on taking the fight to the courts. The road to making abortion illegal in the U.S. again is paved with extreme regulations like so-called “hearbeat bills.”Since January, nearly a dozen states have introduced this type of legislation, which bans abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat is ...

Beto O'Rourke Is Already Getting The Rockstar Treatment

Although Beto O'Rourke officially kicked off his presidential campaign on Thursday morning with a video, what everyone will truly remember from his announcement is the dreamy, Americana-infused, Annie Leibovitz-shot Vanity Fair cover story published the day before, in which O'Rourke, who spent his youth as a freewheeling musician, talks in poetry: "Man, I’m just born to be in it."O'Rourke's rise to national superstardom happened when he came closer than anyone expected to beating the loathed Te...

Neon Invasion: Pieces You Can Actually Wear

Neon Invasion: Pieces You Can Actually Wear Neon is one of spring’s brightest and most adventurous trends. Thankfully, today’s neon is more sophisticated and less in-your-face than it used to be.

The spring/summer 2019 runways were rife with examples of neon at its powerful best: there was the potent orange shorts suit at House of Holland, the sporty-chic yellow snakeskin at Off-White, the amazing lemon lace s...

Tammy Baldwin On The Next Battle For LGBTQ+ Rights

It’s 2019 and, in more than half of the states in the United States, it remains legal to discriminate against members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, in housing, in public spaces, and many other areas.

Voice Of Reason Nancy Pelosi Calls BS On Trump's "National Emergency"
