President Obama told grassroots organizers on a conference call Thursday to “get moving” on efforts to make their support for the Iran deal known to members of Congress.
“You guys have to get more active and loud and involved and informed,” Obama said on conference call Thursday.

Donald Trump knows his base, but the one-time registered Democrat is out to build a team that's even more intimately knowledgable of the right-wing voter, so he's turned to Sarah Palin's inner circle for help. Trump has tapped a former Palin aide to serve as his campaign's political director, USA Today reports.
On "Outnumbered" Thursday afternoon, "the ladies" discussed a Glamour article that the magazine retracted after it came under fire for being outdated and misogynistic. Co-host Andrea Tantaros, to the surprise of absolutely no one who regularly watches "Outnumbered," disagreed with the magazine's decision to retract the article, saying that it included a number of genuinely good ideas.
Prosecutors often use strong language to describe people they have just indicted for murder. But it is extremely rare to hear a prosecutor to use such strong language to describe a police officer he has just indicted for murder. (Indeed, it's rare that prosecutors indict a police officer for murder at all.) When Ohio prosecutor Joe Deters indicted campus police officer Ray Tensing yesterday for shooting Cincinnati resident Samuel DuBose in the head during a routine traffic stop, he didn't pull any punches:“He should have never been a police officer,” Deters said during a press conference, referring to Ray Tensing’s actions as “the purposeful killing of another person” and saying that such an act of violence “just doesn’t happen in the United States.” Before showing the body cam video footage, Deters detailed Tensing’s “asinine, senseless” actions during the traffic stop.
