Left-wing celebrity Susan Sarandon on Tuesday blasted Hillary Clinton as just a “rich” person who got where she is because of her husband.

The government reported this morning that seasonally adjusted March housing starts and building permits fell by 8.8 percent and 7.7 percent, respectively, far worse declines than analysts and economists predicted.
After the report, the business wires at least communicated the facts accurately, but continued to insist almost to the point of editorializing that there's no reason to be worried about the long-term direction of housing market or the overall economy.

Barry Goldwater was a conservative hero and pioneer. But his presidential run was an historic flop. So when Joe Scarborough described Ted Cruz on today's Morning Joe as "Barry Goldwater's ugly stepson," it was a scalding simile. Scarborough in turn scolded the Republican establishment for backing Cruz over John Kasich as the alternative to Donald Trump.
Scarborough's argument focused on electability. Scarborough predicted that in a general election against Hillary, Cruz would lose 40-41 states [actually a bit better than the 44 Goldwater lost]. The screencap shows Scarborough holding up a Boston Red Sox coffee cup while claiming the cup has a better chance of beating Hillary in swing states than Cruz. In contrast, Scarborough says Kasich would "blow her out."

On Full Frontal With Samantha Bee on Monday night, former veteran network journalist Katie Couric made a cameo on the liberal comedy show to mock her “sweetheart” image.
The show opened with host Samantha Bee being heckled by people while walking on the street. After so many comments, she started pretending she was Katie Couric and asking protesters to send their complaints to Couric on social media. At that point, the camera flips to Couric sitting in a restaurant, presumably reading tweets on her phone.
“I’m not a basic bitch! I’m America’s sweetheart!” Couric exclaimed before flipping the bird.
