The GOP Tax Plan’s Mega Gift To Some of Trump’s Richest Appointees

Reprinted with permission from ProPublica. There are times that you run across something that’s so preposterous that it’s hard to believe it’s true. But in this case, it is. I’m talking about the multiple — and permanent — set of tax breaks that some of the Trump administration’s mega-wealthy appointees and their heirs stand to […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Trolls Trump Over Vietnam Visit

We always knew Kellyanne Conway loves to party — and she was celebrating the anniversary of Trump’s election when Jimmy Kimmel caught up to her. With the president in Vietnam for an international conference, Conway couldn’t resist tweaking liberals like Kimmel who recall Trump’s history of draft-dodging. “Suck it, John McCain!” she exclaimed. “Our president […]

Obsessed With Violence And Awaiting ‘Revolution,’ Far Right Got Another Church Massacre

Reprinted with permission from Alternet. We are living in very sick times. But make no mistake—the group that is most obsessed with violence, that worships firearms, defends gun rights to no end and fantasizes about civil strife, is the far right. By late Sunday, everyone across America who had a TV or internet connection had […]

#EndorseThis: “From Russia With Love” To Trump’s Perp Walk

Some very naughty person posted this mean, unfair, over-the-top video — featuring a cast of familiar faces, from Michael Flynn to Ivanka Trump — in celebration of the Halloween indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller. In its gloating excess, the “From Russia With Love” fantasy is extremely nasty to the Trump gang and asks viewers […]

Russia Probe: Manafort And Aide Surrender After Special Counsel Indictment

‘Smart’ Trump Speaks With Vocabulary Of Fifth-Grader (At Best)

Many Americans complain that Donald Trump has a tiny vocabulary. But he disproved his critics Wednesday during an impromptu press conference on the South Lawn of the White House. In the past, Trump has repeatedly reminded people about his keen intellect by insisting “I’m smart.” Wednesday, he dug deep into his massive personal word bank […]

#EndorseThis: Are Corker And Flake Heroes? Seth Meyers Thinks Not

Lionized for denouncing the authoritarian, plainly deranged president, Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake are a pair of unlikely heroes. After all, as Seth Meyers recalls, they were all too happy to support Donald Trump for president last year — long after the casino developer’s personality and political defects were obvious. Now Corker complains that […]

#EndorseThis: Colbert Spoofs Trump Feuds With Flake And Corker

Like almost everyone else in America, Stephen Colbert is enjoying Tennessee Senator Bob Corker’s erupting feud with Trump. Brawling broke out again on Twitter Tuesday, after Corker denounced the president on TV morning shows and Trump fired backs several angry tweets. “Some of what Trump said about Corker was not true,” notes an earnest Colbert.

Kelly: When A (Retired) General Goes Off Half-Cocked

Silly me, here I’d been fantasizing about a soft military coup preventing the Braggart-in-Chief from starting World War III. Surely the Pentagon has procedures for removing emotionally-incapacitated commanders, and Trump’s generals, as he calls them, must have made contingency plans. Or maybe not. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says that arguing with a […]

Now We Know John Kelly

After all the sound and fury and infantile tweeting, what have we learned from the controversy over the president’s call to Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow? We still don’t know much about why he and his three fellow Green Berets died or what the U.S. mission may be in Niger. But we again discovered something […]

#EndorseThis: Hillary Tells It Like It Was About Trump’s Inauguration (Uncensored)

The new, let-it-all-hang-out Hillary Clinton was over in London last week, promoting her book What Happened – and surprisingly showed up on the fabled “marmalade couch” of BBC’s Graham Norton Show, where she ruefully recounted the tale of her appearance at Trump’s inauguration. You may have heard this story before, but not the way she […]
