SNL: Hillary swiped 'Goldman Sachs Amex'
Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” took a rare shot at Hillary Clinton this week. Her subway riding experience took up plenty of the segment.

Trump foreign policy appeals to older millennials
Donald Trump delivered his foreign policy doctrine during a speech Wednesday that had a moderate tone appealing to older millennials who critique the Bush Administration’s hawkishness, but are disappointed with the Obama Administration’s failures to defeat Islamic terrorism.

Author: “I get tired of defending" Gen-Y
