Embattled Trump returns to strong suit: campaigning

Embattled Trump returns to strong suit: campaigningWith his presidency in turmoil and political adversaries baying for blood, Donald Trump is trading the Washington mud pit for more soothing surroundings: a campaign stage and crowds of thousands chanting his name. Trump hits the campaign stump for a rally in Melbourne, a city on Florida’s famed Space Coast, at 5:00 pm (2200 GMT), not as candidate but the nation’s commander-in-chief seeking to reconnect with his tribe of largely white, male middle-class voters. The rally locale had all the flair and anticipation of a campaign event from 2016: Thousands of supporters in line, women wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats, men in “Bikers for Trump” shirts, toddlers asleep on parents’ shoulders, and plenty of Trump merchandise for sale.

Magic Johnson shrugs off criticism from embattled Clippers owner

Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Earvin Magic Johnson acknowledges the crowd before MLB Cactus League spring training baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds in GlendaleBy Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Basketball great Earvin \"Magic\" Johnson shrugged off the latest character assault leveled at him by Donald Sterling, calling the Los Angeles Clippers owner \"delusional\" and suggesting Sterling acted out of desperation to keep the NBA from seizing his team. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver issued a statement apologizing to Johnson for being \"degraded by such a malicious and personal attack.\" Sterling's CNN interview on Monday marked his first public comment since coming under fire nearly three weeks ago, when TMZ.com posted an audio recording of him berating a female friend for publicly associating with black people, including Magic Johnson. The resulting furor led Silver days later to declare Sterling banned for life from the National Basketball Association, and to call on the 29 other team owners who make up the NBA Board of Governors to strip Sterling of team ownership. He also further stoked outrage by lashing out at Johnson, the charismatic former Los Angeles Lakers point guard who stunned the sports world in 1991 when he announced he had contracted HIV and was retiring at the peak of his NBA career.
