Legendary journalist and winner of multiple Pulitzer-prize awards, Bob Woodward, is publishing a new book providing an unflattering inside-look on the Trump White House. Predictably, Trump and his staffers are pushing back, saying the reports in the book are untrue and exaggerated. So who do you believe... the journalist with recorded interviews and documents with nothing to gain by making shit up, or the Trump White House?
A recent poll has the Senate's most hated man Ted Cruz in a virtual tie with Beto O'rourke come November, fueling the idea that Texas may elect a Democratic Senator for the first time in a generation. And while Cruz made be widely unpopular around the country, it's still silly to count him down and out.
While it may seem crummy to bring up politics during a memorial, that's exactly what McCain asked for when he requested George W. Bush and Barack Obama offer eulogies while Donald Trump, the man who said McCain wasn't a war hero (and STILL won't call him a war hero) stay home.
In a little over an hour, Donald Trump's former campaign manager AND his long-time personal lawyer both officially became felons... one by a jury of his peers, and another confessing as part of a plea deal. It seems the man who claimed he'd 'drain the swamp' surrounds himself with the swampiest of individuals.
We're not even two years into the Trump Administration, an era filled with corruption, greed, ridiculous characters put in positions of power from Ivanka to Omarosa to Scaramucci to Spicer. Not to mention, a failure to appeal ObamaCare, an immigration policy that separates children from their parents, and thousands of Americans dead in Puerto Rico. Who's tired of this shit yet?
Donald Trump and Mike Pence keep talking about "Space Force," a new branch of the U.S. armed services that would be prepared to fight in space. Except despite what you've seen in Avengers, there actually isn't anyone to fight in space. And yet ideas like Medicare for all, free pre-K and less expensive public college are all deemed "too expensive." How can the wealthiest nation in the world waste money on SPACE FORCE but not on getting everyone health insurance?
While vacationing at his private golf club in New Jersey, Trump took to Twitter to say he may not have enough time during the midterm elections to campaign for Republican candidates. He's vacationing there this entire week.
The GOP nearly lost another special election last night in a district that has been safely-Republican for a generation. Will this be enough to get the Republican lawmakers to finally abandon Trump, or will they stay on a ship that appears to be sinking?
During his Twitter attacks on the New York Times this weekend, Trump defended White House counsel Donald McGahn, suggesting he wasn't a "rat" like John Dean, who testified against Richard Nixon during Watergate.
This is your friendly reminder that ratting on Nixon was a good thing, that Nixon was a criminal, and that throwing shade at the guys that turned on him is throwing shade on the good guys.
Trump stripped the former CIA Director of his security clearance last week because he didn't like what the guy was saying about him. By removing an experienced operative from the situation, Trump has made all of America a little bit less safe.
This isn't suggesting that the use of the N-word by a 71-year-old white millionaire isn't offensive. The question being posed here is; would anyone who Trump hasn't previously offended SUDDENLY be offended if they now found out he used the N-word on the reg?
It's clear to anyone watching the Paul Manafort trial that the former Trump campaign manager is guilty as sin of a litany of financial crimes. He's the epitome of the Swamp Trump wore to drain. But here's my prediction, and it doesn't take much stretch of the imagination; Manafort won't go to prison, because Trump is going to pardon him.
Maybe it's just me, but if I was being investigated for a crime I know I didn't commit, I would welcome a full investigation. If my name was being run through the mud on a phony "witch hunt," I'd want to be interviewed by investigators and get my name cleared. That's how an innocent person would act.
How rich is Donald Trump? So rich that he apparently has never gone to a grocery store. The President of the United States, who appointed the richest cabinet in the history of the country and signed off on a new tax cut for the richest 1%, made a comment this week about requiring an ID to buy groceries. As anyone who has bought groceries knows, you don't need an ID to buy groceries.
Trump, the self-proclaimed champion of the every-man, has never bought his own groceries.
Democrat Stacey Abrams is taking on Republican Brian Kemp for the Georgia governor position, and it has been described as a battle for the soul of Georgia. Abrams, who supports medicaid for all, would be the first female African-American governor, while Kemp, who is white and received an endorsement from Donald Trump, has said he would drive illegal immigrants to the border himself in his pick-up truck.
