HUNTINGTON, W. Va. — While it is highly unusual for a sitting governor to change political parties while in office — as West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (D) announced he would do during a rally with President Trump on Thursday night — the process of crossing over was familiar to many in the crowd that night. Kimberly Barrington, a 46-year-old stay-at-home 65

July 28, 2017 4:21 PM Anthony Scaramucci’s Self-Help Books Are All Self and No Help

Trump’s foul-mouthed communications director wrote three books full of advice that he apparently can’t take himself. Maybe because it’s all junk.

On July 4, 1831, James Monroe died from heart failure and tuberculosis at his daughter’s house in New York City. The fifth U.S. president had attempted to write an autobiography, but was unable to complete it as his health slowly deteriorated after his wife died the year before.

July 1, 2017 3:31 PM When dad’s the president — a look inside Ivanka Trump’s complicated world

Ivanka Trump’s office: clean, white, quiet. A zone of punctual start times and promptly-offered water bottles, and a conference table at which she conducts meetings.

Serena Williams is pregnant. In case anyone hadn’t heard the news, or missed the breathless tale of how Williams won the Australian Open during the early weeks of her pregnancy, the fact is made plain on the August cover of Vanity Fair which features the tennis champion in the buff.

June 9, 2017 3:32 PM Film Screenings for the Right Sort of Viewers

After female-only showings of ‘Wonder Woman,’ how about Aussie-only viewings of Nicole Kidman movies? There was a great hue and cry recently when the Alamo Drafthouse chain scheduled a number of females-only screenings of “Wonder Woman.” But this is a film about empowering women, and who could doubt that women find it easier to feel empowered when they don’t 52
