Mom, Apple Pie and...Wealth Redistribution? Mitt Romney spends another week on the defensive after a video surfaces, with him saying unflattering things about voters whose low incomes exempt them from income taxes.

And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city.
