Say what you will about out presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (and everyone has!), but one Twitter user has boiled down one major inconsistency between Mayor Pete’s gay supporters and the straight ones. While Buttigieg may have come out relatively late, some of us have been around a wee bit longer and know how youth-obsessed we can be. And how frequently younger guys have a thing for older men – “daddies.” (Older being relative sometimes, since actual age is frequently unimportant.) Compared...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Detroit-based General Motors Co emerged from two days of Democratic debates in its hometown largely unscathed as 2020 White House hopefuls largely passed up an opportunity to criticize it for significant job cuts in recent months. The largest U.S. automaker has come under fierce criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike for months after its November announcement that it would end production at five North American assembly plants and eliminate about 14,700 jobs. It had been bracing...

DETROIT (Reuters) - Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden and rival Kamala Harris will stage a rematch of last month’s explosive debate confrontation during Round 2 on Wednesday, with a re-energized Biden promising a more aggressive approach.

Boris Johnson has been crowned the new leader of Britain’s Conservative Party, and will become Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at its most critical moment of modern times. The 55-year-old beat Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt in the runoff to replace Theresa May. “My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive,” he once said — one of many statements in which he may never have...

The British Conservative party is set to announce a new prime minister that will replace Theresa May as leader of the party and the country on Tuesday. London’s former mayor Boris Johnson is the favourite to win the contest against rival UK foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt. Johnson is so far ahead with bookmakers and pollsters that if he doesn’t win it will be a huge shock. Johnson campaigned to revive the country’s “mojo” and promised Britain would leave the EU on...

McALLEN, Texas (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic lawmakers on Friday called President Donald Trump’s latest anti-immigration initiatives “unacceptable” and warned his administration against misappropriating funding authorized only for humanitarian use. The criticism came as two congressional delegations toured the U.S.-Mexico border area near McAllen, Texas, as part of efforts to oversee policies banning nearly all asylum-seekers from entry, warehousing detainees in crowded quarters and holding children separately from the adults they traveled with. “The administration has continued to push anti-immigrant...

Wally Scott, mayor of Reading, Pennsylvania, cancelled the flying of the Pride flag outside City Hall just minutes before it was set to go ahead on Monday 15 July, according to CNN. It was meant to kick off a week of Pride celebrations in the city. He defended the controversial decision by saying that although he doesn’t have anything against the LGBTQ community, he believes raising the Pride flag would be a “political movement” – something he doesn’t think City...

The owner and editor-in-chief of The New Republic apologized for a vulgar and homophobic op-ed published Friday that attacked presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and made broad assumptions about the mayor’s personal life. Dale Peck’s post titled “My Mayor Pete Problem” described Buttigieg as “the gay equivalent of Uncle Tom,” and repeatedly referred to the presidential candidate as “Mary Pete” throughout the column. Peck argued that because the mayor waited until his early 30s to come out...
