New York City officials have removed a tombstone bearing Donald Trump’s name from Central Park. The mysterious artifact was discovered in the park’s Sheeps Meadow area on Sunday and was subsequently removed overnight, according to multiple reports.The tombstone featured the GOP presidential front-runner’s name inscribed in stone beneath a cross. The faux-memorial also listed Trump’s birth year of 1946, but it did not specify a year of death for the outspoken billionaire. “Make America Hate Again,” the monument’s epitaph read, a twist on Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan.

(CNN)Ted Cruz is condemning the deadly shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic, but is refusing to blame the attack on the anti-abortion rhetoric that has consumed stretches of the Republican primary campaign.

Speaking about the alleged gunman, Robert Lewis Dear, at a campaign event in Iowa on Sunday, Cruz accused the media of wanting "to blame him on the pro-life movement when at this point there's very little evidence to indicate that." Audio of the comments was posted online by The Texas Tribune.

Fans of the Democratic presidential hopeful can now purchase underwear with his face silk-screened on the rear, along with the popular slogan "Feel the Bern." Thank to comedians Larry David and Ellen DeGeneres for inspiring the latest political fashion statement, which is not sanctioned by the campaign. After Sanders told DeGeneres last month that he preferred briefs over boxers, David picked up the thread during his ace impersonation of the Vermont democratic socialist on "Saturday Night Live."

"I own one pair of underwear, that's it," David/Sanders said during an SNL send-up of the Democratic primary debate. "Some of these billionaires, they've got three, four pairs!" That viral scene inspired a team of three Vermont-based Sanders supporters to launch the Bernie-branded briefs, which go for $15, with 10% of the profit donated to the Yellow Ribbon Fund to benefit veterans.

"Bernie is known as a champion of veterans so we wanted to give (some of the proceeds) to an organization that he would appreciate the money going towards," said Todd Bailey, one of the creators of the undergarment line and a partner at KSE Partners, a government affairs and communications firm in Montpelier.
