SALT LAKE CITY – Dozens of homeowners in suburban Salt Lake City were stunned to answer their ringing doorbells on Tuesday night. Mitt Romney was on the front step. “Hi, Mitt Romney!” one resident exclaimed before the Senate candidate even had a chance to introduce himself. “Is that pumpkin?” Romney asked another local, who opted for a fist-bump instead of a handshake – as he was carving jack-o’-lanterns inside. “You caught me in the middle of laundry!” another surprised resident said. Speaking with Fox News, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee now running for Senate in Utah said he’s mostly getting a warm welcome as he goes door to door. “I do get, ‘What are you doing here?’” Romney said. “It’s … [Read more...] about Romney using star power to boost GOP candidates in Utah – and he has some advice for Hillary Clinton

close Video Kurtz: Hillary, the media and the sore loser narrative 'MediaBuzz' host Howard Kurtz weighs in on Hillary Clinton's continuing to pile on the blame for her election loss. A year and a half after the election, Hillary Clinton still finds herself a political piñata. President Trump keeps pounding "Crooked H" on Twitter, suggesting that she should still be under investigation. The media keep portraying her as whining about her election loss—a problem she has certainly contributed to in the past. The New York Times said yesterday that she "faces distrust on the left, where she is seen as an avatar of the Democratic establishment, and raw enmity on the right." And she's getting liberal flak for preparing to endorse Andrew Cuomo for reelection–because "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon happens to be running against him. Clearly, there is no shortage of piling on here. First, it's ridiculous that the former secretary of State is being criticized … [Read more...] about New flak for Hillary Clinton as she cautiously wades into the midterms
www.washingtonpost.com By Jessica Contrera Photos by Bonnie Jo Mount northfork, w.va. —Another morning, another list of patients and problems in the hands of 35-year-old Keisha Saunders. Diabetes, depression, heart disease. Robert needs lower blood pressure. Buffy needs prescriptions filled. Mary needs to lose 50 pounds, so she can get what she really needs, a new hip. Again, the list extends to the bottom of Keisha’s notepad, as it has so many days since the Affordable Care Act mandated that everyone have health insurance. Unlike in Washington, where health care is a contentious policy debate, health care where Keisha is a nurse practitioner is a daily need to be filled. The high rates of chronic diseases in McDowell County have made it the county with the shortest life expectancy in the nation. It’s also a place that voted overwhelmingly for President Trump, whose promise to repeal the ACA will soon affect nearly every patient Keisha treats at the Tug River health … [Read more...] about They are poor, sick and voted for Trump.

Culture Roseanne The reboot of Roseanne premiered this week, with a shock for viewers: Roseanne Conner voted for Trump. Yes, despite the titular character's former liberal views on issues like workers' unions, tax cuts for businesses and abortion rights, Roseanne defended her choice to vote for Trump to an exasperated Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) in Tuesday night's episode. (Many suspect this sudden change has to do with star Roseanne Barr's real-life politics.) But that twist got TV fans thinking: Which other beloved sitcoms characters might turn out to be Trump voters, should their series get a topical, politically-charged reboot in 2018? Friends (1994-2004, NBC) Thanks to a poll created by BuzzFeed, we already have an idea of which Friends character people think would be a Trump supporter—none of them! Ross cares too much about academia funding to vote Trump. Monica is a Hillary supporter through and through, and she makes sure Chandler is too. Joey most … [Read more...] about 7 Sitcom Characters—Besides Roseanne—Who Would Have Voted for Trump
