Sanders: ‘No, I do not hate Secretary Clinton’

Bernie Sanders threw down Donald Trump’s accusation that he “hates” Hillary Clinton in an interview with MSNBC Thursday night. At a rally in Maine on Wednesday, Trump had said, “I mean, he cannot stand her.” Sanders responded, “He has read my mind! What a man, what a genius! No, the answer is, of course, you know Trump is lying, as he always does. No, I do not hate Secretary Clinton.” Although Sanders has so far withheld his endorsement for Clinton, he says the two campaigns are working together. “We are working, I mean as we speak, we are working with the Clinton campaign, trying to be able to come forward and say to my supporters, ‘You know what? Here’s the progress that we have made. Here’s what Secretary Clinton is saying on this issue, on that issue, that means a whole lot to you.’ So I hope that we can reach that goal. We are not there at this moment.”

National Building Museum unveils Icebergs exhibit

Inside the National Building Museum, more than 30 polycarbonate icebergs sit and float in a 12,540-square-foot ocean made of blue net in the building’s great hall. The exhibit, ICEBERGS, was designed by landscape architect James Corner and is the newest addition to the museum’s annual Summer Block Party series. Initially, Corner was intimated by the offer to design the exhibit. “My response was, ‘It’s not a matter of competition,’” said Chase Rynd, executive director of the National Building Museum. “What we’re really interested in is a surprising experience in the great hall.” The exhibit is interactive; including an iceberg slide, educational programming and a kiosk that sells Japanese shaved ice. ICEBERGS opens Saturday, July 2 and runs through Sept. 5. Tickets are $16 for adults and $13 for youth, students and seniors.


Attorneys seek journal of late teen in case of accused mother

Attorneys for a Virginia woman accused of killing her son are looking for a journal he kept before he died. Lawyers say the teen’s writings could shed light on the mother-and-son relationship, as well as any culpability she may have had in his death. The teen, Quincy Davis, disappeared in 2004, but was never reported missing. His body was found in the trunk of a car owned by his mother, 45-year-old Tonya Slaton, after police pulled her over. Officials believe he died at the age of 14 or 15. Slaton’s attorneys argue that she loved her son. A jury trial is scheduled for late September.
