While scores of players have registered their disgust with Donald Trump, professional coaches across three of the four major sports leagues have remained largely silent. The NBA has proven a welcome exception.
During the 2016 election, the conservative Wall Street Journal declined to endorse Donald Trump, recognizing the Republican candidate’s manifest personal deficiencies posed a clear and present danger to American democracy. While the newspaper has grown more Trump-curious since he was sworn into office…
“Robert E. Lee was an honorable man who gave up his country to fight for his state,” the White House chief of staff told “The Ingraham Angle’s” Laura Ingraham. “Men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.”
A prolific online troll and former intern of Milo Yiannopoulos has been charged with first-degree murder after allegedly stabbing his father to death in his Washington home. According to audio of the incident obtained by the Daily Beast, 33-year-old Lane Davis set upon his father after the latter called him a Nazi.
Fox News has yet to air a single episode of “The Ingraham Angle,” and its host, Laura Ingraham, may have already worn out her welcome, if she ever had one at all. According to the Daily Beast, the conservative radio star is a “known tyrant” off the air, and staffers are “dreading the possibility of working with her.”
Long after his presidency is over and Trump has finally shuffled off this mortal coil, Neil Gorsuch will likely still be sitting on the Supreme Court, much to the delight of American conservatives. Gorsuch’s fellow Supreme Court justices do not appear to share their glee.
What has he tweeted now? Odds are you’ve asked yourself this question in the wee hours of the morning with a knot in your stomach or a tightness in your chest. And while there’s no way to anticipate what horrors await—threat of nuclear war? Personal attack on a private citizen? The possibilities are endless!
From the moment he was elected, liberals have clung to the possibility, however remote, that Donald Trump will be removed from office. They’ve fallen for the conspiracy theories of #Resistance hucksters like Louise Mensch, Claude Taylor and Eric Garland, and continue to hold out hope the Mueller investigation will bring his corrupt presidency crashing down.
Shortly after Donald Trump disinvited the Golden State Warriors to the White House last month, LeBron James called the president a “bum,” adding that these trips were “a great honor until you showed up!”
Donald Trump attacks the media almost as regularly as he moves his bowels. He infamously kept reporters in press pens during the presidential election and has, at various junctures, referred to journalists as “enemies of the people.”
The Las Vegas massacre has already surpassed the carnage at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fl. as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. At least 58 people have been killed and more than 500 treated for injuries, their blood still drying on the Vegas strip outside the Mandalay Bay Casino.
Meet Roy Moore. When he’s not waving a six-shooter like Yosemite Sam, he can often be founding railing against the evils of homosexuality and the impending institution of Sharia law. After defeating Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary, despite the campaign efforts of President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Moore is on the verge of assuming the seat Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated in the United States Senate, with Democratic opponent Doug Jones unlikely to receive much in the way of funding from the DNC.
He crept out furtively like a swollen possum into the daylight, blinking in anticipation of a round of boos that never came. Less than two months after resigning as Donald Trump’s White House communications director, and four days after making his late-night debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, Sean Spicer assumed his new place in the public consciousness—as Stephen Colbert’s special guest at the 2017 Emmy Awards.
For Texas and large swaths of the Caribbean, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have proven historic human catastrophes. At least 70 people were killed in the former, while the latter is presently on a collision course with Florida’s Gulf Coast after leveling Anguilla, Cuba and the Bahamas, among other island nations and commonwealths. Barbuda, which bore the brunt of the Category 5 storm Irma, has been reduced to rubble.
Since he took office in January, Donald Trump has predicted the imminent demise of Obamacare. Six months later, the Affordable Care Act remains the law of the land, and the GOP is no closer to repeal and replacement. In fact, the states where the legislation is failing to meet its stated goals are almost exclusively those controlled by the Republican Party.
On Thursday, the New York Times columnist called Republicans’ efforts to roll back some of the savage Medicaid cuts a “scam.” That’s because McConnell’s health care legislation dictates tax-favored health savings accounts pay insurance premiums. This would not only enable the rich to set up huge tax shelters, but subject them to marginal tax rates, providing obscene savings.
Wesley Easterling took him at his word. Like so many of his neighbors, Easterling relies on Medicaid and food stamps to provide for his wife and daughter. His Kentucky county is among the poorest in the country.
The Republican Party controls all three branches of government, as well as 32 state legislatures and 33 governorships. Even if Donald Trump were to be impeached for obstruction of justice—a dubious proposition as long as he has the support of the far right and the GOP holds a majority in the House…
For the first few months of Trump’s presidency, this unholy confederacy has largely kept in formation. But in the wake of Trump’s recent Tomahawk strike on a Syrian air field, it has begun to splinter, with the president drawing the ire of some of his most loyal troops: the Pepe brigade known as the “alt-right.” Now that he has all but banished former Breitbart chair Steve Bannon from the West Wing, Trump could soon be facing a full-fledged mutiny.
Mercedes Benz pulled its advertising from “The O’Reilly Factor” shortly thereafter. “The allegations are disturbing,” said spokeswoman Donna Boland. “Given the importance of women in every aspect of our business, we don’t feel this is a good environment in which to advertise our products right now.”
Despite being the most watched cable news network in the country for the past 15 years, viewers still don’t consider Fox News to be part of the mainstream media — a testament to the evil genius of Roger Ailes and the Fox News marketing team.
At this time last week, Milo Yiannopoulos’ highlights were glowing especially bright. Then came the fall, thanks in no small part to a “socially liberal, fiscally conservative” 16-year-old from Canada identified only as “Julia.”
From the preening “mavericks” to the proud white supremacists, the GOP is entirely complicit in the horrors of the Trump administration. Every unconstitutional executive order, every denigration of the country’s citizenry and press comes with the party’s seal of approval. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may not like what the president is saying, but he likes what he’s doing.
“It’s the single biggest simultaneous departure of institutional memory that anyone can remember, and that’s incredibly difficult to replicate,” said David Wade, the State Department chief of staff under John Kerry. “Department expertise in security, management, administrative, and consular positions in particular are very difficult to replicate and particularly difficult to find in the private sector.”
Mothers brought their sons, fathers brought their daughters, and countless attendees brought their most refined placard game. Here are just a few of the more inspired and inspiring offerings from New York, Los Angeles and beyond:
