Did McCain just save Obamacare?

John McCain shocked everyone yesterday (Friday, September 22) by saying he won’t be voting for the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare next week. Specifically, McCain reiterated his earlier concerns that the Senate shouldn’t pass...Show More Summary

Obamacare repeal update — all about pre-existing conditions and more

As you know, the Republicans may be within one vote of repealing the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. And while Donald Trump claims that the GOP bill protects people with pre-existing conditions, the consensus among health care experts is that Trump is lying. The bill guts protections for people with pre-existing conditions. It’s all rather […]

What religious right leader had an affinity for gay sex art?

How’s that headline for a teaser? In today’s podcast, Cliff Schecter I delve into a number of topics — primarily Obamacare repeal and Paul Manafort’s latest legal problems with the FBI — but we also touch on a number of other issues in the news, including the strange tale of a new bundt pan I […]

Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal to get 2 minutes of debate

One of the many things the Republicans aren’t telling you about their latest effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which will cut life-saving health care for millions of Americans, is that the entire debate over the Graham-Cassidy amendment, as it’s called, will be a whopping two minutes. Yes, you read that right, 2 minutes. […]

Trump tweets video physically attacking Hillary Clinton

Trump sold the Republican party out this week, twice. He needs to win back the Deplorables. Cliff Schecter predicted in our latest podcast that Trump would win back his base by promising to waterboard ten Mexicans. Cliff was close. Trump chose physical violence towards Hillary Clinton. Trump tweets video physically attacking Hillary Clinton – […]

Fox Sports analyst tells female anchor about his love of “boobs”

Unbelievable. Fox Sports analyst Clay Travis just told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that he loves “boobs,” in a conversation about ESPN host Jemele Hill calling Donald Trump a white supremacist. Baldwin was taken aback at first, and once she confirmed what Travis had said — he continued to talk about his love of boobs, repeatedly — […]

“Ted Cruz & masturbation are not things you can take lightly”

Family-values conservative Ted Cruz is embroiled in a Twitter sex scandal, while the nation reels from the after-effects of the second major hurricane to hit the US in the past month. In today’s podcast, Cliff Schecter and John Aravosis discuss the Cruz scandal (2:30), Seb Gorka’s oddly-timed visit to Israel (8:19), Breitbart’s fury over Trump […]

Four feel-good stories about Hurricane Irma

With all the harrowing stories from Hurricane Irma, I was noticing the occasional feel-good story as well. A reporter rescuing some dolphins; some people on a beach rescuing manatees; a little kid in Georgia buying lunch for someone with Florida license plates; and flamingos! So, I’ve compiled them in place. Enjoy. 1. An NBC News […]

No, Hillary shouldn’t just shut up

Hillary Clinton’s new book criticizes Bernie Sanders, and has reignited a controversy over progressive unity, women’s rights, and whether the two are mutually exclusive. I expressed the concern that, regardless of whether Hillary’s criticism of Bernie in the book was right, taking shots at Bernie now risked reigniting a Democrat civil war. And, I argued, […]

Trump kills the DACA Dream

Donald Trump yesterday rescinded President Obama’s DACA policy that let undocumented kids who arrived in the US before the age of 16 to apply for two-year renewable amnesty. Trump is now pulling the plug on DACA, leaving the kids in limbo, while punting the entire issue to Congress. Cliff Schecter and I just published an […]

Rush Limbaugh, hurricane truther

Rush Limbaugh is a hurricane truther. He thinks all the hysteria over Hurricane Irma is a conspiracy cooked up by “Big Water” and, for lack of a better phrase, Big Climate. Limbaugh spent most of today’s screed going after Big Climate. You see, according to Limbaugh, a lot of meteorologists believe in climate change, so […]

Chapo’s Strap-on House

Absolutism on the left is no path to victory. In our latest podcast, Cliff Schecter and I talk about the importance of holding Democrats accountable while still understanding that our greater fight is with Donald Trump. We also discuss the latest on Trump-Russia and how the Mueller investigation, with the help of the IRS and […]

The GOP finds FEMA Jesus

On the heels of Hurricane Harvey’s disaster in Texas, heartless Republicans in Congress are preparing to cut nearly $1 billion from America’s disaster assistance programs in order to pay for Trump’s racist wall. At the same time, Texas Republicans have made it harder for Texans to force insurance companies to make good on disaster claims; […]

“Remember Senator, today you’re pro-choice”

A new episode of our UnPresidented podcast is out. On today’s show, Hurricane Harvey ravages Texas, so Donald Trump’s first impulse was to pardon a racist “for the ratings.” Then Trump flies to Texas, interfering with disaster relief, but getting a great photo opp of Melania mingling with the little people in stiletto heels (seriously). […]

Trump to obstruct disaster relief in Texas tomorrow

Donald Trump, himself an ever-growing disaster, is preparing to parachute into Texas tomorrow to interfere with relief efforts during the ongoing natural disaster unfolding in that state (it’s not over yet, the storm is now heading back to the gulf, and may regroup into a hurricane then head north!). The scenes on TV are horrific […]

Welcome to our new Resistance podcast

I have joined with my longtime friend and progressive colleague Cliff Schecter in launching a new podcast dedicated to empowering the Resistance, called “UnPresidented.” We do a minimum of two episodes per week. Half are open to everyone, and half are subscriber-only. We’re asking for a minimum subscription of $5/month, which is standard for most […]

As nation braces for devastating hurricane, Trump helps racists

Donald Trump just had his Hurricane Katrina moment. Trump, who just last week embraced actual Nazis, used his first presidential pardon moments ago on Sherrif Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of refusing to comply with a court order to stop violating the Civil Rights Act by racially profiling Latinos. Arpaio was also a lead birther, […]

Trump nominee says being gay is a “choice,” and gay marriage will lead to pedophilia

Donald Trump’s nominee to be the chief scientist at the Department of Agriculture thinks being gay is a choice, and that legalizing same-sex marriage will lead to legalize pedophilia. His name is Sam Clovis, and these revelations come from CNN’s KFile, who uncovered that Clovis made these comments between 2012 and 2014, so they’re hardly […]

Trump’s non-stop vacations have bankrupted the Secret Service

Donald Trump’s non-stop vacations to his various golf courses have bankrupted the Secret Service, USA Today reports. The problem is the size of Trump’s extended family, plus the necessity of keeping agents full-time at Trump’s various golf courses up and down the east coast. As a result, the Secret Service has already spent its entire […]
