Image
The president's prior fixer refers to him as a mob boss figure who left racist insults, was driven by hatred for President Barack Obama and engaged in underhanded tactics against opponents. President Trump regularly referred to Black leaders of foreign nations with racist insults. He had an abiding admiration for President Vladimir V. Putin's willingness to deal with Russia like a private business. And he was consumed with hatred for President Barack Obama. "As a guideline, Trump expressed low opinions of Black folks, from audio to culture and politics," Mr. Cohen writes in the book, to be published Tuesday. "Tell me one nation run by a Black person that is not a shithole," Mr. Cohen quotes Mr. Trump as stating.

The assistant principal of an upstate high school has sparked outrage with a Facebook Live video he recorded during the Rochester protests -- where he cried,"F--k the police!" Steven Lysenko, a ninth-grade AP teacher at Spencerport High School in suburban Rochester, complained about officers targeting protesters although"we didn't do anything but sing and interrogate," based on copies of the movie which have gone viral online. "Our peacekeepers ended up shooting pepper spray us for laughing and singing and telling them what a s--ty-assed job they were doing," he whined at the clip, that was saved and shared on social media. "They can f--k off, America!" He shouted. F--k Rochester Police Department!" Assessing the college official while sporting a Black Lives Issue shirt. After his expletive-laden tirade, Lysenko calmed himself enough to sign off with a polite"thank you," in accordance with this clip which started making rounds

3 Signs You Should Not Claim Social Security Early

Image
You may be tempted to sign up for Social Security before full retirement age (FRA) to get your money sooner. You are permitted to claim benefits as early as age 62, whereas FRA does not kick in till 66, 67, or someplace in between, depending upon your year of birth. Of course, the problem with taking benefits before FRA is you'll reduce them permanently from the procedure. Some seniors are willing to forgo a higher advantage in exchange for that premature access, but when the following situations apply to you, you are probably better off waiting to file. You don't have a lot of retirement savings You shouldn't expect Social Security to pay all of your bills. In reality, those advantages will normally replace about 40 percent of your pre-retirement wages, assuming you are an average earner. Many seniors end up needing a lot more income than that to live easily, and often, the difference comes from retirement savings. But if you don't possess a particularly robust nest e

Now: Tenet Box Office: Christopher Nolan’s Thriller Debuts Modestly As Theaters Start To Reopen

Image
Hollywood has been anticipating this weekend for a while now. It was declared by Warner Bros. in late July that Christopher Nolan's Tenet would be released domestically on September 3, and instantly everybody ready to look at the launching for a litmus test to find out the prospect of theatrical releases in what remains of 2020. Now the numbers are in by the thriller's first 3 days on the big screen in America -- and the results can be described as fair given the existing circumstances. Per Box Office Mojo, Tenet played 2,810 theaters last weekend (presumably all them taking proper precautions and following security protocols), and the last figures show that the film made $20.2 million. Obviously there is an asterisk to be implemented given the bigger circumstances of the moment, but the numbers make the film Christopher Nolan's third weakest national introduction -- with a silver liner being that it created more than 2006's The Prestige (that made $15 million) and 200
