An interview suggests Trump doesn’t know what’s in his health bill

Either the president doesn’t understand the proposal — or isn’t telling the truth about it. President Trump gave a lengthy interview Sunday morning to CBS’ John Dickerson about the Republicans’ health care plan.

What Trump didn’t tell his supporters about his first 100 days

President Trump’s rally in Pennsylvania Saturday night was a classic Trump campaign stop. He attacked the media, snarled about the Washington swamp, stoked fears about illegal immigrants, and promised a future in which “dying factories will come roaring back to life.” It also featured a special twist to mark Trump’s first 100 days in office: an alternative telling of his presidency so far, in which all of his policy plans are well on track. “What…

American Gods is one of the most beautiful, confusing shows on TV

Starz’s new adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel dives into a gorgeous world with no mercy for newcomers. Starz’s American Gods erupts onscreen in gushes of blood and sex and storms that crack the sky wide open. It spans centuries, with the camera panning across deserts and rooftops, gaudy casino floors and sprawling constellations.

What Trump and Clinton voters really think about Trump

Their views were more nuanced than our poll showed. At first glance, Trump voters and Clinton voters appear sharply divided on how they view Trump’s handling of the presidency so far. Ninety-five percent of the people who voted for Donald Trump approve of his performance, according to a Vox-SurveyMonkey poll of more than 1,000 Americans conducted in early April. Among Clinton voters, it couldn’t be more different — 93 percent disapprove of his performance. But…
