By Eddie Pells Published 4:52 pm PST, Saturday, February 2, 2019 ATLANTA — For towering tight end Tony Gonzalez, this was a slam dunk. The 6-foot-5 Gonzalez, who turned the celebratory post-TD dunk over the crossbar into an art form, was voted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday. Joining the former Cal football and basketball player will be two more first-time nominees, cornerback Champ Bailey and safety Ed Reed, along with another defensive back, Ty Law, and center Kevin Mawae; Law and Mawae were both in their third year as finalists. The contributor nominees, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and Cowboys and NFL executive Gil Brandt, each made it, as did senior Johnny Robinson, the defensive back who helped the Chiefs win Super Bowl IV. Among the finalists who didn’t earn enshrinement were former Raiders coach Tom Flores; wide receiver Isaac Bruce, whose final two seasons were with the 49ers; defensive lineman Richard Seymour whose final four seasons were with the … [Read more...] about Slam dunk: Gonzalez makes Hall, along with Bailey, Reed, Law

Last Updated Oct 8, 2018 10:56 AM EDT President Trump said he has a "very good relationship" with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and will talk with the DOJ's second-in-charge on the way to Orlando.

Weeks after the New York Times reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had suggested wiretapping the president and invoking the 25th Amendment -- which Rosenstein denied -- he is traveling with the president to Florida for the law enforcement address. … [Read more...] about Trump says he has “very good relationship” with Rosenstein, on way to speak at police convention — live stream
President Donald Trump has historically low favorability among women, with the Pew Research Center now reporting that 63 percent of women disapprove of how he is doing his job—compared with 30 percent who approve. That might not be surprising, given the range of things that Trump has said and done that might be seen as offensive to women. There’s the famous “Access Hollywood” tape that gave rise to thousands of pussy hats, the 22 women who have publicly accused him of sexual harassment and assault, and the hush money his personal lawyer has admitted to paying to cover up marital indiscretions. There is Trump’s tendency to insult women, from Carly Fiorina to Megyn Kelly to Mika Brzezinski. Most recently, there was his rally in Mississippi, during which the president mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that Brett Kavanaugh, who has since been confirmed to the Supreme Court, had sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. Trump’s … [Read more...] about Is Trump Driving Women Away From the GOP for Good?
