OPINION: Give Trump a chance

Arnav Damodhar | Associate Editor Number 45 was not my pick for the White House. I was not enthusiastic about Rex Tillerson, Betsy Devos, and Tom Price either. Every four years, thousands of people gather on the steps of the Capitol to witness power pass from one hand to another. This was the case with President George W. Bush and President […]

Drain the swamp

Jonathan McCollough | Staff Writer Rain drop, drop top, GOP flip-flop. The new Republican-led U.S. Congress had a controversial start in its first session when massive public outcry, as well as criticism from President Trump, forced House Republicans to backtrack on a proposal to gut an independent ethics committee.

OPINION: United-ish

India Kirssin | Managing Editor I have been a fan of the ABC show “Blackish” since it began two years ago, watching it for its humor, its all-star cast, and its ability to discuss national issues in its own wonderful way.

OPINION: Trump purposely misdirects nation from valid concerns with absurd actions

OPINION: Will you read this if it’s not written in emoji?

Jessica Sommerville | Editor-in-Chief Emoji may seem like the “it” form of communication, but millennials and Generation Z did not invent the pictograph.

OPINION: The GOP deserves Trump

Jonathan McCollough | Staff Writer After the leak of Donald Trump’s horrific comments about grouping women, many Republican leaders were quick to jump ship. 51 current and former members of Congress, governors and high-level officials from Republican administrations have reached their breaking points and said they would not support Donald Trump since his vulgar remarks; these individuals include Senator John […]

OPINION: One cannot judge a group based on the acts of a few

Asia Porter | Online Editor An individual does not define an entire group. Racial and religious tensions have grown to be more prevalent throughout the year. Police brutalities against black men and women have the black community calling for justice. Additionally, attacks on Americans by Islamic extremists have created a sense of Islamophobia in the nation. These select cases, however, […]

Yesterday’s pop hits not up for grabs

Jessica Sommerville | Editor in Chief Our favorite pop song is bubbly, infectious, and – possibly – illegal. Billboard’s latest number one, “Closer” by The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey, is a dance-hall grind peddling nostalgia, that “we ain’t ever gettin’ older,” but its melody has garnered attention not only for its breeziness but its similarity to The Fray’s 2005 hit “Over […]
