(CNN) -- President Donald Trump is "in excellent health," White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, said following his physical Friday. But it's not clear whether any mental health tests were conducted, despite urging from mental health professionals... Jackson received an urgent letter from dozens of doctors and health professionals Thursday urging him to perform basic mental health tests on the President... While a true mental health evaluation can only happen in person, these experts have noted there is some "increasing concern" that the President may be struggling with some mental health challenges and they recommend the President's doctor screen Trump for dementia. read more

The porn star, Stormy Daniels, has stayed silent on the salacious claims, except for a statement of denial supposedly signed by her and circulated by [Donald] Trump's personal attorney ... But on Friday night, another porn star, Alana Evans, shed some light on the matter, telling the Daily Beast that Daniels told her one day after the alleged tryst that Trump had chased her around a hotel room "in his tighty-whities." ... "All I'm going to say is: I ended up with Donald in his hotel room. Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities," Evans said her fellow porn star told her the morning after she supposedly had sex with Trump in July 2006 ... That evening, Evans said Daniels called her repeatedly, asking her to come over ... "Stormy calls me four or five times, by the last two phone calls she's with Donald and I can hear him, and he's talking through the phone to me saying, 'Oh come on Alana, let's have some fun! Let's have some fun!'" Evans said.

Few journalists have tossed more hand grenades or built more of a reputation for themselves than Matt Taibbi, who covers politics and culture for Rolling Stone when not writing bestselling books -- most recently I Can't Breathe: A Killing on Bay Street... In 2008, Taibbi won a National Magazine Award for his columns and commentary at Rolling Stone. With fame comes controversy... Taibbi has come under attack for work that critics say is flat out misogynistic and sexist... Taibbi has published at least two apologies, but the firestorm has barely abated. He says that his support for Bernie Sanders throughout the 2016 campaign is part of what's motivating the attacks on him... Reason's Nick Gillespie spoke with Taibbi about his new book, free speech and the left, the recent negative attention that his work has received, and issues on which progressives and libertarians overlap in powerful, if always uneasy, ways. read more

President Donald Trump delivered a speech honoring the civil-rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. on Friday, one day after Trump was said to have described Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration. As Trump shook hands with several people at the event on Friday, reporters called out questions about his Thursday comments. "Mr. President, are you a racist?" one reporter repeatedly asked. Others asked whether the president had, in fact, used the word "shithole" to refer to the countries. read more

Hedrick Smith: Three years ago, in his monumental work, "Capital in the Twenty-First Century," the French economist Thomas Piketty warned that "when the rate of return on capital exceeds the rate of growth of output and income, capitalism automatically generates arbitrary and unsustainable inequalities that undermine the meritocratic values on which democratic societies are based." ... As evidence, Piketty pointed to the tumor of concentrated wealth accumulated by America's super-rich 1 percent since the late 1970s while middle class incomes stagnated, even over a long period of growth. read more

"They don't even know how to have sonorous political language," Nader said.

"They're stealing from you -- my fellow Americans. A handful of corporate, greedy bosses controlling your government on this national stage and local level, gouging out whole communities, sending industries to fascist communist regimes abroad. They have no loyalties to this country.

They have no allegiance to communities other than to exploit them, abandon them.

They rose to power on the backs of you, the workers. They were subsidized by Washington and state capitals, by you the taxpayer.

The Marines bailed them out when they got into hot water, palling around with dictators and monarchs. Why do you allow them to rule you?"

Nader said the ruling elites have "lost the fear of the people." This has given rise to "a multifaceted dictatorial government indentured to the plutocratic class symbolized by Wall Street."

Corporations, enjoying a new tax code that reduces corporate income taxes to 21 percent while individuals pay up to 37 percent, have been awarded the constitutional rights of individuals while individuals have been stripped of their rights.

What I bolded should piss off ALL Americans -- trillions of dollars were once again stolen from American taxpayers in the form of another massive GOP tax cut, right in front of all our eyes, yet people don't care.

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has graded our nation's infrastructure a D + ... www.infrastructurereportcard.org

The ASCE also say that it's take $2 trillion to fix our roads and bridges, but we just stupidly gave corporations that are already making record profits money that same mount of money that could've been used for infrastructure.

That's hilarious. On 1 hand he glamorized and relished sexual harassment!!!
Then we the article resurfaced (in a different 'era') he denies all association!! YOU just can't make this stuff up.
Can you say HYPOCRITE?????



There were two women who went by Masha at The eXile at the time. Both told Paste that the passages were fictional, but requested their last names not be included. One wished not to be quoted directly.

"I was never harassed by Matt Taibbi, nor did I see him sexually harass anyone at work or outside work either," the other Masha told Paste in a phone interview. "It was a ridiculous passage written by Mark."

"These claims that Matt would do this stuff are ridiculous," she said. "I left The eXile because we started dating, and Matt was worried about impropriety. He didn't even ask me out at work! Matt is a fundamentally decent and kind person."

The woman referred to as Sveta (whose last name has also been omitted for professional reasons) also told Paste that the encounter described in Ames' passage never happened, and that neither Taibbi nor Ames ever acted inappropriately towards her or any other woman in the office.

"It never happened," she wrote over email.

When asked if the two editors ever ignored impropriety by other male staffers, she told us there was nothing to ignore. In other words, The eXile's work environment was not hostile for women.

The woman who was there said there was no harassment.
