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.
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 about politics. Neil Gorsuch, after all, was nominated and confirmed. The reality is there must be other conservative judges Trump and McConnell can nominate who don't have the baggage and lies and skeletons the way Kavanaugh does.
To be a Supreme Court Justice, you should be squeaky fucking clean. Kavanaugh is not squeaky fucking clean, by any stretch of the imagination.
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?
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.
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.
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.
