Browder is CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, an investment fund and asset management company that specializes in… Continue Reading →
White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is definitely communicating. He called up the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza to vent. In the process, he told Lizza that “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” going on to say that he would be “fired very shortly.” Going off the rails completely, he continued: “The swamp will not… Continue Reading →

Three Republicans kept us from plunging into the medical abyss.
The rest of them voted for a bill they despised.

Singer Rod Stewart stepped in to pay five-figure travel costs for a group of children with disabilities who traveled to Washington to protest the GOP healthcare bill that would cut Medicaid, CNN reported Wednesday.
Stewart said he acted after seeing news coverage about the children, who didn’t have the $30,000 it would take for them to travel from Baton Rouge, La., to Washington.
