Donald Trump Jr. joins Infowars & Alt Right in defending virulent anti-Semite embraced by Trump

Donald Trump’s angry son, Don Jr., is at it again. Don Jr. regularly weighs in on Twitter to support his dad, and today’s tweets, defending a virulent anti-Semite his father embraced, are par for the course. You’ll recall last week that Trump tweeted a video of him beating up a fictitious CNN reporter. What wasn’t […]

The renewed attacks on CNN and the mainstream effort to normalize anti-Semitism

2016 was the year that virulent anti-Semitism came roaring back, enabled by social media, especially Twitter. And in 2017, we witnessed the subtle normalization of Jew-hating. I’ve written before about the neo-Nazi “Alt Right” using Twitter to systemically attack Jews, women, people of color, and LGBT people in an effort to ethnically cleanse the Internet. […]

Trump encourages violence against CNN reporters

Donald Trump today posted a tweet encouraging and promoting violence against CNN reporters. This comes on the heels of Trump spokesperson Sarah Huckabee claiming falsely that Trump has never called for violence. In fact, Trump repeatedly called for violence during the presidential campaign, and was routinely criticized for it. It also comes on the heels […]

Mika & Joe: Trump White House tried to blackmail them

There’s more fallout today over Donald Trump’s unhinged misogynist attack on “Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski yesterday. And yes, obviously we shouldn’t take our eye off the ball of health care reform. But Donald Trump’s increasingly erratic mental state is a story. And incredibly dangerous story. It needs to be discussed. You’ll recall that Trump […]

America, you elected a pig

Donald Trump is a pig. This morning, true to form, like a dementia patient with a perpetual case of reverse Sundowner’s, Trump launched a vicious and misogynist Twitter attack on “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski. Trump called Mika “low IQ” and “crazy,” and then graced us with an updated version of his disgusting “blood” attack […]

Trump to “bribe” moderate Senators to support health bill, then move bill right

The Trump White House is planning to “bribe” moderate Republican Senators with money to fight the opium crisis, to get them to support the draconian Senate Obamacare repeal bill, according to a Trump administration source who spoke with Axios’ Jonathan Swan. What’s worse, the same source says the Republicans will them move the bill even […]

Meet the courageous reporter who stood up to White House’s Sarah Huckabee yesterday

Yesterday at the White House, Atlas shrugged. More specifically, Playboy correspondent Brian Karem told White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee where she could put her neo-fascist talking points about the free press being nothing more than “fake news.” It was pretty glorious. Sadly, no one else stuck up for Karem. But it was a […]

GOP Sen. McConnell’s childhood Polio therapy paid for by charity

Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had polio as a child, and benefited in his recovery from the charity of the others. This is an interesting fact, as Vice President Pence recently claimed that people ought to take “personal responsibility” for their own illnesses. In a 1990 political ad, McConnell mentioned his polio, and that […]

34% premium increase for older Americans under Senate GOP health care bill, with fewer benefits – per CBO

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that Americans in their 60s could see a 34% increase in health insurance premiums under the Senate Republican health care bill. What’s more, CBO says the Senate bill will cut benefits. Which means, older Americans will be paying more for less. And in fact, the bill will raise premiums for […]

It’s time for the media to give Trump a time-out

Donald Trump has again banned live coverage of today’s White House briefing. Every reporter should pick up their phone, turn on the video, and let Sean Spicer or Sarah Huckabee have them dragged out by the Secret Service. As part of his ongoing crackdown on dissent and truth, Trump has been cutting back on the […]

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. By @bobhagh — Kristina Lucare????i (@KristinaLuca) June 22, 2017 With the election of Donald Trump, AMERICAblog’s independent journalism and activism is more needed than ever. Please […]

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.
