    Trump's next appointments might be a gay man and a woman

    President-elect Donald Trump is still putting his future administration together, and he’s reportedly mulling a few picks that would bolster his team’s diversity.

    Trump apparently wants to replace outgoing U.N. ambassador Samantha Power with Richard Grenell, who formerly served as spokesman for several previous U.N. ambassadors.

    Grenell is an openly gay conservative speaker, and he briefly served as Mitt Romney’s foreign policy spokesman during the 2012 election cycle. Grenell resigned from that role after conservative backlash.

    The move might help reassure LGBTQ citizens who are wary of a Trump administration. Although Trump’s pledged not to roll back marriage equality rights, Vice President-elect Mike Pence has a long record of taking anti-LGBTQ positions.

    Trump also needs to find a new leader for the Republican National Committee since current chair Reince Priebus will be Trump’s chief of staff.

    For that job, he’s reportedly thinking about employing Ronna Romney McDaniel, …read more

    Wanda Sykes booed in Boston for criticizing Donald Trump: 'F— all y'all' (Video)

    Comedian Wanda Sykes is the latest to publicly criticize Donald Trump on stage, but when her comments were met with resistance, Sykes reportedly flipped off the booing crowd and told them, “f— all y’all.”

    During the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser at Boston’s TD Garden arena over the weekend, Sykes blasted the newly elected president for being a racist, sexist, and a homophobe.

    “I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president,” said Sykes, according to the Boston Herald. “He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one.”

    The crowd didn’t react well to Sykes’ comments as they booed her set, to which Sykes responded, “F– you, motherf–ers. F– all y’all. F– all y’all.” Many outlets reported that Sykes flipped off the audience, although that …read more

    Michael Moore explains why Trump won in 45-minute commercial-free 'Morning Joe' appearance


    In the wake of what turned out to be an accurate prediction that Donald Trump would win the 2016 presidential election, in part because of support in rust-belt states, Michael Moore has been talking further about what led him to realize, over the summer, that Trump was connecting with people in a way that would lead to victory.

    On Friday, the filmmaker stopped by MSNBC’s Morning Joe for what he said was planned to be a seven-minute appearance but turned into a 45-minute discussion, as part of a panel, that aired on the cable channel without commercials.

    During the wide-ranging discussion, Moore talked about why Trump connected with working people in states like Wisconsin and Michigan, why he and others will continue to oppose the president-elect and wondered aloud, as he has in the past, why the Democratic party doesn’t “run more beloved Americans,” like Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey.

    As for Trump’s appeal, Moore, who supported …read more
