Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke out against rape culture and sexual assault on Wednesday, specifically addressing male college students. Speaking at George Mason University, he spoke to the crowd on consent and called on the students to fight sexual assault and end victim blaming.

You can do it,” he told the crowd. “Guys. A woman who’s dead drunk cannot consent,” he said. “You are raping her. You are…

As Pres. Donald Trump was cozying up to the National Rifle Association, Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) had called on people to stop watching Trump’s speech and focus on victims of gun violence instead. Murphy, whose constituents include people from Newtown, Connecticut, where the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre took place, has long been a champion of gun control. While Trump was praising the NRA and the gun lobby, who had donated $30 million to his campaign in 2016, Murphy took to Twitter to remember victims of gun violence. The handful of names and photos of victims he posted included schoolchildren…

It’s not possible. By necessity they…

But now Trump’s new Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is working to undo some of these changes with Republicans along with Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.).…

Donald Trump showed up for a campaign-style event at the NRA’s annual convention, he was met with thunderous applause. He became the first sitting president since Ronald Reagan who gave a speech to the NRA. He said to the crowd: Only one candidate in the general election came to speak to you, and that candidate is now the president of the United States. … You came through for…

‘The Simpsons’ joined late-night hosts and comedians across the world, and gave us their take on Pres. Donald Trump’s terrible first 100 days. The short video that has just come out pulls no punches. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo3fT0xPeHs It opens in a White House that looks more like a haunted mansion, with Kellyanne Conway running away as Sean Spicer has hung himself.
