A Canadian news publication has taken on the onus of keeping track of all of the mistruths spewed by President Trump throughout his time in office, and they've thus far caught him making a whopping 294 false statements. The Star has taken on the task of fact checking each claim the President makes and recording when he's off of the mark, as was the case when he said his administration has added nearly 1 million jobs [the number actually rounds out to about 581,000]; or when a claim he makes is completely fabricated, as was his assertion that scores of illegal voters tried to hijack the election [which remains unsubstantiated] and "all voted for ...

Jada Pinkett: The Reimagining of My Relationship to Pac in Movie was Hurtful

The 2Pac biopic All Eyez on Me dropped last night, and as reactions begin to trickle in, one in particular stands out. Jada Pinkett Smith took to social media to post the following: "Forgive me...my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth. Pac never read me that poem. I didn't know that poem existed until it was printed in his book. Pac never said goodbye to me before leaving for LA. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career. I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request. We never had an argument backstage. The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply ...

Kalief Browder’s Brother to Run for New York City Mayor

Akeem Browder's life has drastically changed over the past several years, as he watched his brother Kalief take his own life after being neglected and brutalized by New York City's criminal justice system, before burying his mother, who some have said died of a broken heart over what happened to Kalief.
