Trump Spokesperson Has An Epic Meltdown On CNN

It’s impossible to defend the guy.

Being a spokesperson for the Trump campaign is not an easy job. Night after night you have to pop up on cable news shows and defend Trump’s antics whether he just mocked a Gold Star military family, claimed that Barack Obama created ISIS, or believes the election is rigged. It gets even harder when you have deny the polling numbers that show Trump is losing by a wide margin nationally, and in most swing states. All of this spin must have caught up with top Trump advisor Michael Cohen today when he had a complete meltdown while speaking with CNN’s Brianna Keilar.

In the clip above, Cohen is asked by Keilar about the recent staff changes the Trump campaign has made to address its major slide in the polls. “You say it’s not a shakeup, but you guys are down,” Keilar says. “Says who?” Cohen responded with righteous indignation. “Most of them. All of them,” Keilar replied without an ounce of hyperbole. Then Cohen must have suffered through the longest four seconds in his life while he waited for the right words to pop up in his brain. But all he could do was repeat his last question: “Says who?” Keilar looked shocked and responded by repeating herself: “Polls,” she said. “I just told you. I answered your question.”

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
