One would think that honesty and integrity would be the most basic requirements for a nominee to the country’s highest court. By those standards, however, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh wouldn’t even be in the running. Yet, here we are.
The first impression of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s latest Twitter rant about the online “censorship” of “conservatives” might be that he’s the dumbest person ever elected to Congress. But it’s really about how dumb he thinks his supporters are.
The gaslighting and nonsensical arguments being put forth by Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, are so laughable that even Chuck Todd can’t keep a straight face on national television.
We are now witnessing what happens when a clan of grifters and scoundrels caught in a giant conspiratorial mess begin to turn on each other.
To the surprise of no one, Donald Trump proved once again his word is meaningless.
It’s not surprising to watch as the Trump clan tries to spin the release of hundreds of pages of Justice Department documents related to the surveillance warrant on Carter Page as something that vindicates the president and members of his former campaign.
Only with someone like Donald Trump as president would journalists have to come up with scientific indicators to measure and describe the extent of the president’s dishonesty and untrustworthiness.
Just like Donald Trump lied about seeing American Muslims “cheering” in New Jersey on 9/11, and just like he lies about everything else, on Saturday, the president made up a story about witnessing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers “liberating” towns from MS-13 gang control.
Do you notice anything peculiar about this batch of tweets recently shared by the Associated Press with its 12.8 million followers?
Given that Donald Trump once told CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl that he deliberately attacks journalists and news organizations to “discredit” and “demean” them, it’s hard to tell if he intentionally sold out one of his own staffers this week or just plain screwed up one of his lies.
It’s odd to contemplate how much Trumpism has warped our political perceptions. Arthur Brooks, the head of the staunchly pro-business American Enterprise Institute, is now the reasonable Republican in DC. He also wants to be on both sides of the most important issue.
With Rudy Giuliani stealing the limelight this week with his freakish new Trump sideshow, it’s hard to watch presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway as she listlessly tries to spin the latest lies coming out of the White House.
The election of Donald Trump did not provoke tortured bouts of self-appraisal only among Democrats. Republicans are also struggling with their own “Whither our party?” moment. Unfortunately for them, they are too utterly craven to even produce a good set of lies!
Our nation is riven with political and spiritual disagreements. But one evangelical Christian writer has taken to the time to reach out to the rest of the nation with a heartfelt message: Wowza, we evangelicals will fucking believe any damn lie!
Later this month, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, the case that will almost surely result in the decimation of public sector union membership in America. It will be an unbridled catastrophe for working people. Which makes it all the propaganda being distributed about the case all the more…
This week it was revealed that the conference committee finalizing the GOP tax plan inserted a provision that would substantially enrich one of the Republican senators threatening to vote against it. By some miracle and for reasons that surely had nothing to do with that provision, Bob Corker of Tennessee then changed…
Yesterday, Zoltar-esque Trump administration flack Sarah Huckabee Sanders opened the White House press briefing with a long, meandering story that purported to use an analogy about buying beer to explain the logic of the Republican tax cut plan. You may be flabbergasted to learn that this story, which was literally …
Harvard upset a lot of people when it decided to reward the former Trump apologist and fellow snake oil salesman with a fellowship at the John F. Kennedy School of Government’s Institute of Politics.
Like thousands of their peers across America, University of Chicago grad student workers are considering forming a union. Would a fine institution like the University of Chicago stoop to spreading embarrassingly transparent anti-union lies? But of course.
