The Athletes’ Brief was filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges California’s Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage. The brief expresses the importance of equal rights and the role that athletes play in affecting public behavior by the way they treat others, especially their effect on young people. Some of the supporters include:
- Sean Spicer said "his intention is never to lie" as White House press secretary, after making false claims this weekend about Trump's inauguration.
- President Trump signed an executive order that bans foreign organizations that receive US funding from providing abortions.
- Democratic lawmakers say Trump's new hotel in Washington, DC, has lost over $1 million and violates its lease with the government.
- The all-day breakfast boom at McDonald's is over as sales fall for the fast food giant 🍳 📉
