Wednesday was the second and final hearing in regards to the attorney general nomination of Alabama Senator Jeff Session, and it was marked by strong opposition from his African-American colleagues on the hill. And later that night, NBC News seemed to relish in their smears of racism towards the Senator who defeated Alabama’s Ku Klux Klan. “No less drama in this fight as African-American members of congress spoke out today against the nomination,” hyped anchor Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News.

This doesn’t happen every day in Hollywood: an upcoming film is bringing its actors closer to God.

Charlie Rose, Norah O'Donnell, and Gayle King repeatedly tried to get Conway to verify something that she wasn't privy to — whether or not Trump read the classified appendix. The guest blasted BuzzFeed for "really violating basic journalistic standards" by their release. O'Donnell agreed with Conway, but still pressed the Trump aide on the issue.
