2 Ways To Look At Trump’s Stupid Or Lying Comments About Putin & Russian Hacks

So, Donald Trump yet again said something mind-blowingly insane this week. He said he believed that Putin believed that he and his cronies didn’t try to influence the US election.

Journalism for Tomorrow — NOT Fake News

More seriously, I’ll admit that I’m strongly drawn to politics, follow policy & politics closely (some might say obsessively), and have sometimes struggled with how much time and emotion I invest into all of that. If I step back a […]

Immediately after the last US general election, despite the fact that the Republican Party “won,” I wrote about Republican Party “civil war” and asked in the title of an article, “Can The GOP Survive?“ It may have seemed odd to write about political civil war in a party that just won a presidential election, but […]
