Woman confronts GOP Sen. Capito over daughter’s cancer (video)

A woman from West Virginia visited her Republican US Senator, Shelley Moore Capito, to talk about the Republican party’s efforts to repeal Obamacare, which would take insurance away from 24 million people, increase premiums on people age 50+ by 66%, reinstitute annual and lifetime caps, decimate coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, and even hurt people who […]

66% premium increase for age 50+ under Senate GOP health care bill

The Senate Republican health care bill, announced today, contains the language letting insurers raise premiums by 66% on people age 50 to 64. (At age 65 you can go on Medicare.) I have action steps you can take at the bottom of this story. This is the same language contained in the House Republican health care […]

This gorilla playing in his bath will restore your faith in, well, gorillas at least

I give you a gorilla in a bath. You can thank me now. I cannot stress enough how important it is you watch this gorilla bathe-dancing to maniac.

Dear Media: If White House screws with you, screw back

Donald Trump lives and dies by the mainstream media. Fox News may be Trump’s mistress, but CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times are his one true love. Trump is desperate for good coverage from the mainstream media. The media should use that leverage to its advantage. Trump is once again screwing with the media. From […]

Trump calls Russia’s interference in our election “a hoax”

Donald Trump today, yet again this morning, questioned whether Russia interfered in the 2016 US election. While it’s been an established fact for a while now, Trump has vacillated on the issue for months. Here’s what Trump said this morning on Twitter: When asked this week whether Trump believes Russia interfered, White House spokesman Sean […]

Omarosa is now demanding people call her “Honorable”

Former Trump reality star, and current Trump White House adviser, Omarosa Manigault, has taken to Twitter to demand that people refer to her with a title. Specifically, Omarosa wants to be referred to as “The Honorable Omarosa Manigault,” a title normally reserved for members of Congress, heads of federal agencies, and judges. It all started […]

Next week, the Republicans will gut your work health insurance

There’s a lot of confusion about the new Republican health care plan, simply because they’re refusing to release it. In the US House, they kept it secret until literally the last-minute — they didn’t even give the Congressional Budget Office a chance to look at the cost or effect of the bill before voting on it. […]

Trump to break lower-drug-price promise

The man who never met a promise he wasn’t willing to break is about to do it again. Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise to lower drug prices by allowing cheaper foreign drugs to be re-imported into the United States, and just as importantly, to permit Medicare to negotiate for better drug prices, has […]

Georgia GOP says mass shooting of congressmen is actually a good thing

Always like a Republican to see the mass-shooting glass half-full. A local GOP party chairman in Georgia, Brad Carver, says the recent attempt by a crazed gunman to kill several Republican members of Congress who were playing softball will be a boon for GOP candidates, especially Karen Handel in Georgia, who is running against Jon Ossoff. […]

What if all of Shakespeare’s plays were written about Trump? What would they be called?

I had an interesting idea this weekend for a tweet: What if all of Shakespeare’s plays were actually written about Donald Trump? What would their titles be? For example: “King Lear” would be “King Leer.” I also added the hashtag: #ShakespeareInTheTrump Things went viral pretty fast, and I got a TON of great responses. I’ll share […]

Denny’s Father’s Day tweet is pretty hilarious

Denny’s Father’s Day tweet is hilarious. Or rather, the responses to it. For some reason, Denny’s tweeted yesterday that people were wishing the diner-ish restaurant chain a happy Father’s Day. Denny responded by tweeting that it was a restaurant, not a dad. Then people started responding back. And it was good twitter, rather than bad twitter, […]

It’s time for a somber national discussion about [insert latest mass shooting here]

Another mass-murder in America by gunfire. It's time for candlelight vigils & other meaningless gestures.

Trump is considering firing special counsel Mueller

One of Donald Trump’s closest friends, Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, told the NewsHour tonight that Trump is considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. As you know, Mueller is investigating any connections between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election, and according to former FBI Director James Comey, is also now investigating Trump for obstruction […]

Trump tweets about the Pulse Nightclub mass-shooting anniversary

Donald Trump commemorated the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub massacre on Twitter today. 49 people were killed and 58-wounded in a mass shooting on June 12, 2016 at the LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The attack officially designated a terrorist attack and a hate crime. Here is Trump’s tweet: It should be noted that Trump infamously […]

AP brutally fact-checks Trump

The Associated Press wrote a beautifully wicked fact-check of Donald Trump this morning. It’s so good, it’s downright sassy. AP walks through a variety of issues, including Trump claiming: that former FBI Director James Comey is a “coward”; that Comey broke the law by releasing his notes of the meeting in which Trump tried to kill […]

Yes Virginia, corporate America played an important role in the LGBT rights revolution

Let’s have a frank talk about the role corporate America has played in the LGBT rights movement. Because it’s likely more than you realized. I started working on national LGBT rights in the early 1990s. I did the usual stuffing of envelopes for the big-name groups in 1992, but the real work began when I […]

CNN’s Toobin: “There may well be obstruction of justice, absolutely”

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked the network’s legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin if there was any crime committed when Donald Trump told then- FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Toobin’s...Show More Summary

NSA chief Rogers & DNI Coats stonewall Senate Intel hearing on Trump

National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats are testifying before the US Senate Intelligence Committee today about Donald Trump’s efforts to influence the FBI’s Russia probe. In their testimony, Rogers and Coats are doing an awfully good job of not answering the Senators’ questions — even the GOP members who […]

That face when… you’re listening to Sean Spicer peddle BS from the White House podium

Trump lied about $110bn Saudi arms deal — it doesn’t exist

We learn this morning that Donald Trump lied about the alleged $110 billion arms deal he claims to have inked during his visit to Saudi Arabia. The deal doesn’t exist. Or, as Brookings’ Bruce Riedel, who uncovered the ruse, put it: “The $100 billion arms deal to Saudi Arabia is fake news.” Not only did […]
