  Why Black Voters Backed Doug Jones: ‘It’s a Matter of Character for Us’ Turned off by Roy S. Moore, Stephen K. Bannon and President Trump, African-Americans turned out at levels that ensured victory for the Democratic Senate candidate.Mr. Crawford, who is earning a master’s degree in divinity, was standing near the stage at the victory party for Mr. Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, arguing that Mr. Moore’s Christianity did not square with the vision of faith shared by so many black civil rights leaders whose blood was shed on Alabama soil.

Charles Barkley may not be a Donald Trump supporter, but the NBA legend sure does seem to appreciate the tax reform that the new president has brought to the table.

With a new tax bill having passed through Congress this week, Barkley couldn’t resist the opportunity to share some political insight during Thursday night’s NBA coverage on TNT.

“They say it’s gonna trickle down. I’m gonna get my fat a– down to the jewelry store and get me a new Rolex,” Barkley joked. “Thank you, Republicans. I know I can always count on y’all to take care of us rich people, the 1-percenters. Sorry, poor people. I’m hoping for y’all, but y’all ain’t got no chance.”

Judging by what Barkley said about Trump’s loyal following a while back, it’s probably safe to assume he didn’t vote for Trump — at least in the primary election. Still, Chuck has never been afraid fo brag about having a few extra bucks in his pocket. The new tax bill has made him a happy man.

Rubio: GOP Tax Bill ‘Probably Went Too Far’ On Helping Corporations .

Marco Rubio (R-FL) said Friday that he believes the recently passed GOP tax bill did too much to help the bottom line of America’s largest corporations.“I thought we probably went too far on [helping] corporations,” the Florida Republican told the Fort Myers-based News-Press.“By and large, you’re going to see a lot of these multinationals buy back shares to drive up the price,” Rubio continued. “Some of them will be forced, because they’re sitting on historic levels of cash, to pay out dividends to shareholders. That isn’t going to create dramatic economic growth.
