The emerging facts and photos about former White House staff secretary Rob Porter spell out a dark truth about the prevalence of domestic abuse. It happens no matter how “strong” women are. White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway foolishly argued in a CNN interview that White House communications director Hope Hicks, who is dating Porter, was "immune” to such abuse because she was a "strong woman.” Earth to Kellyanne: The perpetrator can be a Harvard graduate and a Rhodes Scholar, like Porter, or a high school dropout.

Dream Kardashian is proving she’s daddy’s little girl. The 15-month-old daughter of Rob Kardashian showed off her newly acquired language skills Friday by saying, “Dada!” on the TV reality star’s Snapchat. The little girl was dressed in pink with her curls undone as she stood up inside of her crib. Kardashian was off-camera but stood close enough for his daughter to spot him and call his name. Kardashian once shunned social media, however, now frequently cannot help but share videos and photos of his daughter, often admiring how fast she is growing and new adventures she finds herself in. Earlier on Friday, he shared a sweet photo of Dream, writing, “ She’s sooo happy!!! #robkardashian #dreamkardashian #kardashian.” Last week, the proud dad shared a series of photos of Dream hugging her
