Trending: College Tries to Ban Students from Saying ‘Long Time No See’ Because… It’s ‘Racist’

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday, May 4, 2015.

Secretary of State John Kerry just doesn’t care how much Israel objects to the Obama administration’s planned deal with Iran.

“That is not a 10-year deal, that’s forever,” he said. “There have to be inspections. There’s a lot of hysteria about this deal. People really need to look at the facts, look at the science of what is behind those facts… We ask people to measure carefully what the agreement is, and wait until we have an agreement to make all these judgements.”

The Old Clinton scandals don’t seem to be holding Americans’ interests anymore, but the newer Clinton foibles like Benghazi and the Email Scandal are capturing America’s attention. (Oh, and Monica Lewisnky still interests us…)

Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) may not be personally to blame for the “Bridge Scandal,” but the New York Times is reminding everyone that his people are. Which they say begs the question – if Christie can’t pick the right people to help him run New Jersey… how can he pick the right people to help him run America?

Great Britain’s Conservative Party should serve as a cautionary tale for the Republican Party.

All successful parties change to adapt to changing times, no matter their ideology, and defeat is a powerful motivator. But those who think the process of renewal is a matter of drawing up fresh talking points and clever photo ops should look at what has happened here for a reality check.

What a world. While many people were out and about protesting against the police in Baltimore, one many holding a “Support the Police” sign was accused of being an agitator! Apparently, it’s only okay to protest when the people around you like what you are protesting.

The Supreme Leader of Iran sure does Tweet some crazy stuff.
