Bill O’Reilly Apologizes After Making Racially Charged Joke About Congresswoman:
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly apologized Tuesday after coming under fire for mocking a black congresswoman’s hair.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” O’Reilly reacted to a clip of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) delivering a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives.
“I didn’t hear a word she said,” O’Reilly said of Waters. “I was looking at the James Brown wig.”
“If we have a picture of James Brown — it’s the same wig,” he added.
The remarks were widely denounced as both racist and sexist on Twitter, where O’Reilly’s name was trending Tuesday morning and afternoon.
Liberal Voters Push Democrats To A New Nuclear Age:
Spurned on health care by hard-line Republicans, President Donald Trump’s White House is now looking for Democratic assistance to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, advance a massive new infrastructure investment and fund the government.
The Democratic base doesn’t want any part of it.
Buoyed by its initial victory on health care, Democrats are interested in using the improved bargaining position that the party’s House and Senate members suddenly find themselves in.
Instead, progressives are continuing to demand total opposition to Trump.
Hillary Clinton Makes Most Political Remarks Since Losing Election:
Hillary Clinton took the stage at a diversity conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, making her most political comments since losing the 2016 presidential election.
“There is no place I’d rather be than here with you,” Clinton said, before adding: “Other than the White House.”
During her keynote address at the annual conference hosted by the Professional BusinessWomen of California, Clinton spoke largely about women’s equality and peppered in criticism of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
“Obviously the outcome of the election wasn’t the one I hoped for, worked for, but I will never stop speaking out for common sense benefits that will allow moms and dads to stay on the job,” Clinton said.

Emily Deschanel And ‘Bones’ Boss Break Down The Final Episode:
It was around 5 a.m. on a day back in December when Emily Deschanel closed the door on a 12-year chapter in her life and finally hung up her lab coat as Dr. Temperance Brennan on Fox’s “Bones.”
The previous night was a lot more than a typical day in the lab, however.
The cast and crew of “Bones” were on location filming the climax of their series finale episode — an intense scene where Brennan and Booth (David Boreanaz) take on vengeful killer Mark Kovac (Gerard Celasco).
Boreanaz was at the helm, serving as director on the action-filled night, full of shoot outs, running, falling, and, eventually, a lot of tears.
