One moment from Saturday night has flown so far under the radar that we’ve decided to feature it here today: the blooper reel.
The stock market nearing new highs? Bubble! Jobless claims at a 43-year low? The numbers must be fake! More than 20 million Americans gained health insurance? Obamacare can’t possibly be helping anyone because I know a guy who knows someone’s doctor who said…
“From the start he’s gotten the appropriate amount of coverage,” Obama remarked to the reporters. “The guy wanted to give his hotel business a boost and now we’re praying Cleveland makes it through July!”
Trump accused the Obama administration of operating internationally with “No vision, no purpose, no direction, no strategy,” for example, but later said that “We must as, a nation, be more unpredictable.”
In the wake of the recent attacks on European capitals by Islamic State, the continued instability of the Middle East that resulted in a refugee crisis that has hit Europe hardest and continued economic insecurity for many, Obama acknowledged a tendency “to withdraw” that was increasingly common on both sides of the Atlantic.
Hillary Clinton’s ascendancy in the race for president has provided an opportunity for the rest of us women to step back and assess our standing in America.
New York Republicans aren’t the only ones convinced by Donald Trump’s “America first” foreign policy — they’re just the only ones who can vote on it. Chinese state media has continued to support the racist businessman’s ascent to his party’s nomination.
For Clinton to be generating press reporting that’s less positive and even more negative than Trump’s is astonishing given the type of gong show campaign he’s been running.
A tie, which is now more possible, would let stand an appeals court ruling that blocks the expanded DACA and DAPA program from taking effect.
The Supreme Court appeared deadlocked over President Barack Obama’s plan to offer work permits to as many as 4 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.
Last week in Washington, more than 50 world leaders convened to discuss nuclear terrorism, and what do you think they talked about? According to President Obama, they talked about Donald Trump.
The Border Patrol union is so impressed with Trump that it has chosen to, well, trumpet its endorsement, breaking with union history in its first-ever official support for a presidential candidate during the primaries.
“Iraq is one large hazardous waste site,” Ritter says. “If it was the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency would declare it a Superfund site and order it be cleaned.”
Can anybody doubt that Obama would defeat either leading Republican candidate—the Sideshow Barker and the Snake Charmer alike—in a landslide? Doubtless his increased popularity derives partly from the contrast.
Despite ISIS continuing to lose more territory by the day in Iraq and Syria, Republican Senator Tom Cotton got on MSNBC to tell the American public that President Barack Obama’s plan was not working. He didn’t suggest any alternative plan to defeat ISIS and instead spent the duration of his appearance whining about everything Obama was doing wrong as president.
Obama said the United States was too slow to condemn human rights atrocities during Argentina’s 1976-1983 dictatorship as he honored victims of the “Dirty War” on Thursday.
George W. Bush himself, in his book Decision Points, admits “Thousands of armed men had just been told they were not wanted. Instead of signing up for the new military, many joined the insurgency.”
An American president is being welcomed, and his words are expected to be broadcast directly to the Cuban people. Such a thing was inconceivable not so long ago. No less historic is the Cuban regime allowing huge throngs to gather and rock out.
