President Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway on Fox News Wednesday denied allegations that she was "sidelined" from press appearances, arguing that she shouldn't have to explain her decision to abstain from TV appearances while she's trying to balance her career and her role as a mother of four children. Conway said during an appearance on "Hannity" that she didn't go on television for a few days because she was looking at houses and schools with four children. "I don't think I have to explain myself," Conway said. "A lot of my colleagues aren't trying to figure out how to be a mother of four kids, I assure you," she added. Conway also pointed out that Trump is president and should be the one getting the spotlight. She also said that "he is his own best messenger, we don't need to be out there all the time." CNN reported that Conway was "sidelined" from media appearances after she said on television that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had the president's "full confidence.

In his press conference last week, in which President Trump ranted and raved that he wasn't ranting and raving, he answered a question about his wife, Melania. "That's what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women's issues" and "women's difficulties."

Even in death we are only limited by our imagination in how we want to go out. There are now ways to turn our corpse into a tree , or have our ashes shot into space , or pressing our ashes into diamonds –I believe Superman is involved in that last one. And now for the music lover, a company called And Vinyly will press your ashes into a playable vinyl record. You like that punny company name? There’s more: the business lets the dear departed to “Live on from beyond the groove.” Hear that groan? That’s the deceased literally spinning in their grave…on a turntable. The UK-based company has been around since 2009, when Jason Leach launched it “just for fun” at first. But a lot of people liked the idea and have kept him in business. It will cost, however.

The POTUS has other responsibilities than live-tweeting awards shows?? Who knew! As you know, Donald Trump has a long history of sending out his opinions of the Oscars via Twitter -- but this year, his Press Secretary Sean Spicer says Drumpf will be focusing on hosting the Governors' Ball instead of seeing what Meryl Streep has to say at the 89th Academy Awards. Related: Trump Roasts This Year's Best Picture Nominees When asked about Hollywood's biggest night (this Sunday on ABC at 8 p.m. EST!) during a press conference on Wednesday, Melissa McCarthy 's muse said: "I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions, and I've got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors' Ball that night. Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event. And the first lady's put a lot of time into this event, in welcoming our nation's governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that's where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night.

“We will ensure New York remains a beacon of hope and opportunity and will work to protect the rights of those seeking refuge in our state,” Cuomo belted . Standing in Times Square, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio told an energetic crowd that “an attack on anybody’s faith is an attack on all people of faith”—a few years ago, de Blasio was singing the-police commissioner Raymond Kelly’s praises when the first wave of stories revealing the extent of the department's surveillance program were published by the Associated Press. When Muslims impacted by these covert spying operations sued the city of New York, de Blasio’s administration responded by thoroughly defending the practice of spying on Muslim Americans. And still, he stood amongst New Yorkers at the ‘I Am Muslim, Toorally and said just that, that he is Muslim, too. (Image: Shepard Fairey) Among the many placards and homemade signs carried by demonstrators, there was one poster that was seemingly the most popular—the image of a woman wearing a headscarf with a US flag design.
