Trump staff might not have been caught in surveillance after all

GOP House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes admitted today that it’s possible no one working for Donald Trump got caught in the NSA’s surveillance net, contradicting what Nunes told Trump and the American people yesterday. Yesterday, Nunes was beside himself, in multiple press conferences, and in a meeting with Donald Trump himself, claiming that Trump […]

Trump’s disastrous TIME interview

Donald Trump gave an interview yesterday to TIME magazine’s Michael Scherer. And it was quite a doozy. The interview reinforces every concern about Trump, from the narcissism and insecurity to deceitfulness. It’s worth a read — TIME, thankfully, printed it verbatim, to let it speak for itself. Among the highlights, Trump defends his false claims about […]

Trump Jr. attacks mayor of London after terror attack

Showing remarkably bad timing, Donald Trump Jr. today attacked the mayor of London following a terror attack in that city today. Trump Jr. chose the occasion of the deadly attack to chastise the mayor of London, who is Muslim, for the mayor’s views on terror — which Trump Jr. misinterpreted from a six-month old news […]

GOP House chair creates outrageous farce to save Trump, attack Obama

House Intelligence Committee chair Devon Nunes, who is a huge Trump ally who helped Trump on his transition, has just gone public with what appears to be blockbuster news: US intelligence picked up communications involving the Trump transition. While initially wow-worthy, it appears that once again Nunes is providing a distraction for Trump’s disastrous week, […]

WSJ op-ed blasts Trump while Manafort/Russia scandal worsens

A blistering anti-Trump editorial in today’s Wall Street Journal proves the Resistance is alive and well, and working. I’d argued early on that the best way to undermine Trump’s presidency was to undermine Trump personally, by targeting his fragile psyche. The more the left can get under Trump’s notoriously thin-skin, the more erratic Trump (who already […]

Spicer: You may not be able to keep your doctor under TrumpCare

White House spokesman Sean Spicer just said that under TrumpCare you won’t necessarily be able to keep your doctor, and he won’t promise it. Spicer appeared to contradict Donald Trump’s comments earlier today, that one of the problems with ObamaCare was not being able to keep your doctor. Here’s Trump today: “Keep your doctor, keep your […]

The terrifying, tolerance-promoting “Beauty and the Beast” (fun video)

Randy has taken on the controversy over Disney's new "Beauty and the Beast" having a kinda sorta gay character.

No Supreme Court nominations until the Russia investigation is complete

Trump ally Devin Nunes says Donald Trump’s administration is now under a “big gray cloud” because of yesterday’s news that the FBI is investigating Trump for possible collusion with the Russians. Sign the petition at the bottom of this page, add your name — demand no action on Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination until the investigations […]

FBI confirms investigation of Trump over Russia

Big news today. FBI Director James Comey revealed at a hearing on Capitol Hill today that the FBI is investigating Donald Trump and his associates for possible collusion with Russia. It doesn’t get any bigger, or more clear, than that. This October tweet from Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway has been making the rounds again […]

Boorish Trump alienates Brits and Germans in one day

Donald Trump managed to damage relations today with two of America’s closest and most important allies, the United Kingdom and Germany. First, came the White House doubling down on its bizarre and unfounded claim yesterday that British intelligence illegally spied on Trump during the campaign, at the request of President Obama. The British version of […]

Trump budget director: It’s “compassionate” to cut Meals on Wheels for elderly, vets

Donald Trump’s budget director Mick Mulvaney defended Trump’s proposed cuts to Meals on Wheels by arguing that such cuts were actually “compassionate” because it saves money for people who pay for Meals on Wheels out of their taxes. Of course, the cuts also take food away from the elderly and military veterans. In 2016, Meals […]

Trump: The Brits spied on me for Obama

Just when you thought things could get any worse, the Trump White House today accused the British government of spying on Donald Trump for Barack Obama during the campaign. This new unfounded allegation from Trump spokesman Sean Spicer quoted Fox News claiming that British intelligence spied on Donald Trump for Obama. So, of course, just […]

Donald Trump, apologize to Pres. Obama — Add your name

Contrary to Donald Trump’s over-the-top claims, the Senate Intelligence Committee has just concluded that Trump was not wiretapped by President Obama. As a reporter just said on CNN, “it’s just not okay.” It’s time for Donald Trump to apologize to President Obama, and to the American people, for his outrageous, unpresidential, and un-American behavior.   […]

Fox News Poll: Planned Parenthood & Bernie more popular than Trump

A new Fox News poll shows Bernie Sanders and Planned Parenthood are far more popular than Donald Trump. Sanders has a 61% favorability rating in the Fox poll, Planned Parenthood has 57% favorables, while Trump has only 44%. GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell is the real loser in the poll, with only 20% favorability. With […]

Paul Ryan asked if he believes Obama tapped Trump: “No”

GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan was asked at a press conference this morning if he believed Donald Trump’s explosive accusation, provided without evidence, that President Obama “tapped his wires.” Ryan’s answer was quick and definitive: No, we’ve cleared that up, we’ve seen no evidence of that. We’ve cleared that up? Someone should have a chat […]

GOP Intel Chair Nunes: Obama didn’t wiretap Trump

Republican chair of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes just told reporters that if Donald Trump suggested that President Obama wiretapped him, then Trump is “wrong.” Nunes went on to say that we shouldn’t take Trump literally. Show More Summary

Sessions: I gave Trump no reason to believe he was wiretapped

Trump’s attorney general Jeff Sessions just said that he never gave Donald Trump any reason to believe that Trump was wiretapped by President Obama. To be precise, Sessions uncomfortably said:”Um, look, um, answer’s no.” AG Sessions was just asked if he ever gave Trump a reason to believe he was wiretapped. “Um, look, um, answer’s no.” […]

America’s favorite racist GOP uncle does it again

Republican member of Congress Steve King, who fretted a few days ago that immigrants would destroy our “civilization” with their babies, has now ignited a new controversy. During a radio interview yesterday, King appeared to predict that a race war between blacks and Latinos would help ensure that minorities never become a majority in America. King was […]

Fox News thinks democracy and truth are anti-Trump. And I suppose they are.

Fox News is apoplectic this morning over the fact that American newspapers have adopted words like “democracy” and “truth” as part of their new slogans. You see, in Fox-land, democracy is a liberal plot to unseat Donald Trump. And sadly, Fox isn’t entirely wrong. Donald Trump does seem increasingly antagonized by democracy, and we know the man has rarely met […]

According to the White House analysis, 26 million people will lose coverage under TrumpCare. That compares to the 24 million estimate from the Congressional Budget Office.
