The Democratic party might be know for promoting income equality, but according to a new study, its rich elites don't care about it any more than Republicans. Professors from U.C. Berkeley, Boston University, Yale Law School, and University of Maryland-College Park recently set up an experiment to test how groups with varying levels of "elite" status in society would distribute wealth. There were three different groups involved in the study -- one representing average Americans (roughly 50/50 Republicans and Democrats), a group of "intermediate elite" University of California-Berkeley undergrads, and a group of Yale Law students, assumed to be in particularly high positions of wealth and influence in the future. The results of the study were summed up by two of its authors in a Slate post, when they wrote:
In fact, many see Senator Graham as a different man now than even during 2016, when he railed against the nomination of Donald Trump as the Republican candidate for President. Some even believe that Trump himself, perhaps during some of the many rounds of golf he has played with Graham since the election, has privately told the 22-year member of Congress about something that could be devastating to his career if it were made public, and warned him against opposing his agenda.

Outgoing Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) told reporters he doesn't really care about President Trumps possible new legal troubles. There's been a new round questions about Trump's legal exposure in the last few days, thanks to Robert Muellers memos and the the Federal investigators who implicated the president in connection with Michael Cohens campaign finance lawbreaking. But Hatch, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, reportedly told CNN's Manu Raju that he doesn't care about Trump's alleged crimes -- and doesn't think the president was actually involved in Cohen's hush money payments on his behalf.
Yessssssssssssss Army beat the Swab Jockeys.
It sounds like a sermon that would be delivered in Uganda, but it's actually from the mouth of an American pastor in Arizona. Conservative Christian Pastor Steven Anderson openly called for executing every gay person in America during a Sunday sermon at his church in Tempe, Arizona. He claimed from the pulpit that gays need to be put to death in the name of God by Christmas Day in an effort to wipe out AIDS, even though AIDS is not a virus exclusive to the LGBT community.
