president trump sat for an interview with "face the nation" host john dickerson that aired sunday morning, where they spoke about north korea ("if he does a nuclear test, i will not be happy"), his new health-care plan ("pre-existing conditions are in the bill") and entitlements ("the concept of medicare, i'm not touching").then, in a portion of the interview that aired monday, trump answered several questions about the oval office that revealed a lot about his leadership style. he likes to have people sit across the resolute desk from him, he said, rather than on the sofas in the room. he likes to conduct most of his business in the oval office, which he thinks "gives you great additional power, if you want to know the truth."but when asked by dickerson how people's awe of the ...

hours before “nerd prom” kicked off at the white house correspondents dinner in d.c. — minus the president — samantha bee and her “full frontal” cohorts took the stage at dar constitution hall for tbs’ “not the white house correspondents’ dinner.” the alt-tv special was more than twice the length of a regular “full frontal” episode, letting bee’s typical ruthless comedy and satire loose with both barrels.if viewers tuned in hoping for an hour of bashing president trump, they were in for some disappointment. not that there weren’t some excellent barbs made at potus’ expense, but the night was more about celebrating the often-maligned journalists who continue to try to do their jobs in the face of adversity.“you (journalists) basically get paid to stand in a c...

an edited transcript of an interview with former warrior stephen jackson:q: why do the warriors mean so much to you?a: we’ve all played for a lot of teams, but not every team makes you feel like you’re a family. not all organizations make you feel appreciated for what you’ve done for the organization. things ended kinda rocky for me, but most people respected it because i wanted to win, and anytime someone wants to win, that’s respected. i think when we came there, we all were journeymen, we all wanted to feel appreciated and we all appreciated each other, and it turned into something great. to have a coach like don nelson who believed in all of us and gave us all the confidence made it all work in the end.q: (vice president of communications) raymond ridder has invited you, baron ...
