NY Times Magazine Asks Jimmy Carter: ‘Do You Think America Is Committing War Crimes?’
Former president and quite liberal Jimmy Carter actually managed to come off more moderate and less anti-Trump than the journalist interviewing him for the New York Times Sunday magazine.

Meet The New California Counterculture: College Republicans
The mechanics of campus politics are rarely interesting. The stakes are low, the rules are complicated and tedious, and the impact of their elections is rarely explicitly seen or felt. But here the mood is more like a three-day prom, where it’s abundantly clear who’s popular, who’s not, and who’s going to be prom king or queen. And Yiannopoulos might have just nabbed that ultimate honor without even running for it. Buzz Feed
