Donald Trump strikes again!

It seems as though the presidential candidate didn't think he burned enough bridges after his comments about Mexican immigrants sparked tons of outrage. On Saturday, the former Apprentice host called out a revered member of the Republican Party.

The Donald was speaking in front of a bunch of religious conservatives at the annual Family Leadership Summit, when he was pressed about his recent description of Senator John McCain as "a dummy."

Moderator Frank Luntz described the 2008 presidential nominee as "a war hero." McCain's plane was shot down while serving in Vietnam, and he spent over five years as a prisoner of war. But Trump thought of it this way:

South Carolina Lawmakers Officially Ban The Confederate Flag At The Capitol!

This flag won't be flying for too much longer!

Earlier this week, it was reported that South Carolina's state senate voted to remove the Confederate flag from the state Capitol grounds.

On Thursday, the House approved the historic Senate bill in a 93-27 vote! The bill will now head to Republican Governor Nikki Haley to sign into law.

We don't know the exact timing of the flag removal, but it could come down as early as Friday!

The proposal to remove the flag was a result of last month's racially-charged shootings at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where nine black people were killed.

While supporters of the flag associate it with Southern pride, opposers say it is a symbol of support for slavery and racism.

We think it's great that South Carolina is willing to make a change in the right direction. Hopefully other states in the south follow suit and make a stand for unity!

no title

Step aside, Donald Trump! There's another tough-talking GOP candidate in town now!

On Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president!

While the Republican party already has over a dozen candidates running, the New Jersey native has promised to be aggressive in his upcoming campaign. He told voters:

"You're going to get what I think whether you like it or not, or whether it makes you cringe every once in a while or not. I am now ready to fight for the people of the United States of America."

Though the 52-year-old's resume is impressive, he has also faced backlash from former aides who created traffic jams at a bridge to get back against a Democratic mayor who chose not to endorse Christie's re-election!

While Christie denied he had anything to do with the bridge closing, this raised the awareness that that those who work with the governor will do anything to win!

During his campaign launch, the presidential hopeful called out the "bickering leaders" from both parties — though highlighted Barack Obama's "weak and feckless foreign policy" and referred to fellow candidate Hillary Clinton the president's "second mate."

In the gymnasium of his old high school, the presidential hopeful declared:

North Carolina Legislature Passes A Bill That Allows Denial Of Same-Sex Marriages Based On Religious Beliefs

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

North Carolina has passed a very disturbing bill that can affect same-sex marriage in the state.

Talk about taking taking two steps forward and 500 steps back.

North Carolina legislature has just passed a bill that allows officials to deny same-sex couples a marriage ceremony or even a marriage license if it interferes with their religious beliefs.

The bill now lands on Governor Pat McCrory's desk, where he will have 10 days to decide whether to veto it or pass it. If he does not come to a decision by then the bill will become law.

This would essentially allow court officials to opt out of performing a marriage ceremony for religious reasons.

This bill has been floating around ever since same-sex marriage was legalized in the state last October, but Governor McCrory has shot down it down in the past.

It seems that some conservatives are convinced that this is some sort of compromise and that they're REALLY protecting the officials who don't want to 'forced' to challenge their own beliefs.

It's unclear if the Governor is currently leaning in one direction or the other, but let's just say we hope he comes to his senses and shoots this thing down AGAIN!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikHillary ClintonFamilyLGBT

The Republican Governor asked for lawmakers to change the current version of the bill so that it mirrors the federal version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act — which does NOT have the provision that allows businesses to discriminate against customers of different sexual and religious orientations.

Governor Hutchinson faced criticism from a lot of sources when it was announced that he would sign the bill into law, but ultimately it was his son Seth's criticism that had the biggest impact. Hutchinson said:
