Gary Johnson: ‘racist’ Trump should be disqualified

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson said Donald Trump should be disqualified for the ‘racist’ things he says. “He has said 100 things that would disqualify anyone else from running for president but doesn’t seem to affect him,” he told CNN’s Brianna Keilar in an interview aired Sunday on “State of the Union.” “It’s racist.” Johnson was referring to a comment made by a woman at one of Trump’s rallies who objected to the “heeby jobbies” worn by some TSA employees, to which Trump responded, “And we are looking at that.” “The stuff he’s saying is just incendiary,” Johnson said. He added that Trump is a “neo-isolationist.”


Lindsay Lohan turns 30, writes book

Former “Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan turned 30 on July 2 and told Vanity Fair she is planning on writing a book. “I hope that my words will connect with those who need some guidance when [or]if they are in a tough place,” Lohan told the publication. “I am grateful that I have a voice, which I can now feel comfortable using as a platform to let people know that we all have ups and downs in life, and we can all come up from the downs if we get in touch with our inner self and spiritual side.” Lohan said she has no regrets about her past and that she is looking forward to her future. “I can’t turn back time,” she said. “But if I could, I would have listened more to my mother and gone back home to N.Y.C. earlier in life and chosen my friends more wisely.”

Obama to tell story of friendship with Clinton

At a campaign appearance Tuesday, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will take the stage to show off a new phase in their relationship: co-dependents. The story of how Obama and Clinton came to form a united front will be the focus of the Obama-Clinton show in Charlotte, North Carolina. Obama is expected to act as a character witness for Clinton, who has struggled with convincing voters of her trustworthiness. “I think that he can be very helpful, particularly with Democratic voters and some independent voters who have doubts,” said David Axelrod, the chief architect of Obama’s 2008 campaign for the Democratic nomination against Clinton. “He can do that by sharing his own experience. They were rivals, they had their differences; that gives him some additional standing.”
