Billboard of Trump and Cruz Kissing Went Up Outside the Republican Convention

A billboard depicting Donald Trump and Ted Cruz kissing each other has gone up in Cleveland, Ohio, where the Republican National Convention is set to take place throughout next week. The image appears alongside a caption that reads “Love Trumps Hate. End Homophobia.”

The billboard was sponsored by LGBT rights group Planting Peace, the same non-profit organization responsible for The Equality House, a rainbow-colored house sitting across the street from Westboro Baptist Church.

Portugal Stuns France to Win Euro 2016 Final

Substitute Eder scored in extra-time to give Portugal a 1-0 win over hosts France in the Euro 2016 final on Sunday as they secured their first major international title despite losing captain and talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to injury.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo was forced off injured in tears just 25 minutes into Sunday’s Euro 2016 final against France in Paris.

Portugal beat a French side who found new inspiration from Griezmann -- the tournament’s leading scorer with six goals who was willed on by a nation longing to rediscover the feel-good factor.
