Finally today, let's talk about tap dance. And we're not talking about politicians trying to get out of answering hard questions. And we're not even talking about another image you might have of old guys in tuxedos from the 1940s. No, we're talking about the Syncopated Ladies, an all-female tap squad that has become an Internet sensation for their tight moves set to popular music, think Prince and Beyonce.

Yesterday, Ohio became the sixth state to pass a bill outlawing abortions at the point a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Republicans in state capitols across the country seem eager to test the limits of Roe v. Wade now that conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh is on the U.S. Supreme Court.
