On the other hand, according to Peter York, author of Dictator Style: Lifestyles of the World’s Most Colorful Despots, “Trump’s design aesthetic is fascinatingly out of line with America’s past and present.” York’s 10 rules of dictator style include tips like “Go big [i.e.,] ludicrously overscale” and “repro” (brand new), “draw from hotels” and use glass, second to only gold.
Fans have now “taken their concerns to Facebook [though] Fox News’ Facebook hasn’t actually addressed the issue yet,” Cranston noted, before reading some of her favorites. “Sorry, but as a [woman], I know far [too] well what the thought of dollars does to some and face it, men with cash and position will get hit, so get the facts, admit [you’re] wrong, take him back, or sink into the sh*thole CNN is in. Y’all deserve each other,” one respondent advised.
After a roaring start in Portland, Maine, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) continued his multi-state unity tour with Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez in Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday. Sanders expanded on his familiar message of wealth inequality and corporate greed by offering a plan to “make sure that coal miners who are retired get the health care and the pensions that they were promised.”
Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office have been among the more disastrous in American presidential history. Not only has he seen his healthcare bill go down in flames and his discriminatory executive orders overruled in federal court, he has failed the very people who voted him into office. Politifact has been tracking over 100 such promises, and while Trump has followed through on some, like slashing regulations, he has broken countless others. Here are ten ways he has bamboozeled his base.
“White nationalists, just like any other extremist group, promise paradise,” Picciolini told Vox. “They promise that the problems of crime and the problems of ‘white genocide’ are going to go away.” “The problem,” he explained “is that nobody is trying to take [anything] away from you.”
“I think what you’re going to see are people who voted for Trump because he said he was going to stand up for working families, but now he supports disastrous healthcare proposals which will throw 24 million people off of heath care, $300 billion in tax breaks for the very rich,” Sanders said.

Before President Trump even approved the Keystone Pipeline, GOP mega-donors Robert Mercer and Rebekah Mercer were already celebrating with a two-day anti-climate conference sponsored by the conservative Heartland Institute.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) began the confirmation hearing of Judge Neil Gorsuch by emphasizing her disappointment that President Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, was denied a hearing.

In the age of fake news and alt facts, Democracy Now! co-founder Amy Goodman and animator Pierangelo Pirak have teamed up to give new life to Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman book “Manufacturing Consent.”
Pins, pussyhats, rallies, and town halls are all nationwide signs of the resistance. Where Trump support is high, the opposition will fight. If you live in a state Trump won and have a photograph of a protest, meeting, or other expression of activism, hashtag your photos #RedStateResistance.
For Joe Scarborough, the only thing more bizarre than Jeff Sessions’ press conference Thursday recusing himself from an ongoing White House investigation was its timing.
Former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear issued a formal Democratic response to Trump’s address to Congress on Tuesday. But the most blistering reply may have belonged to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT), who took to Facebook shortly thereafter.
