Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy said Sunday he is dumping Trump on Twitter. “I’m unfollowing the President of the United States today on Twitter, because his feed is the most hate-filled , racist , and demeaning of the 200+ I follow, and it regularly ruins my day to read it,” he wrote.

The Intercept reports that a super PAC affiliated with a bipartisan caucus in Congress, which has several moderate Democratic members, is backing a Republican primary challenger to the center-left Democratic Rep. Katie Hill. I eagerly await the tweet from @HouseDemocrats about this!

Every year, various polling organizations put together a list of the most and least-trusted institutions in the United States, teasing out the results based on respondents’ political affiliations and other demographics.

Last year, for example, a Gallup poll found Americans trusted the military more than any other government institution. This year, the Baker Center for Leadership and Governance...

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison has won his bid to be his state’s next attorney general following a bitter, months-long campaign during which Ellison was accused of domestic abuse by a former girlfriend.

Ellison, who also serves as the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee and was seen as an icon of progressive politics before the allegations, had been considered by many to be a...

The GOP Learned Nothing After Getting Its Ass Kicked in the Midterms

It’s been nearly a month since the 2018 midterm elections, and in that time the Democrats have only extended their massive margin of victory in the House, gaining at least 39 seats to handily wrest the majority away from congressional Republicans.

Given this historic ass-whupping, you might think the GOP would be, I dunno, a little curious as to why they were so thoroughly routed. That,...

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill got voted out of the Senate this month, and she is not going quietly. Instead, she wants to play the blame game, and her target is her own party’s left wing.

As NPR reported today:

In an interview with Morning Edition host Rachel Martin, McCaskill characterized her loss as a “failure” of the Democratic Party “to gain enough trust with rural Americans,” and she...

Democrats have a very good shot at winning the House and are competitive in Senate races in Texas and Tennessee, and yet, HuffPost reports, they’re playing defense in New Jersey—one of the bluest states in the country—because they stuck with the hilariously corrupt guy.

According to the Texas Tribune, Texas Democrats already allocating millions of dollars toward a “war room” aimed at taking down Texas Sen. John Cornyn in 2020. Cornyn, meanwhile, already appears scared shitless at the onslaught of Blue Wavery coming for him over a year and a half out from the general election—especially because more than half of Texas supposedly don’t like him, or haven’t the...

Let’s be clear: Republicans are to blame for the fact that Brett Kavanaugh is about to become the next justice of the Supreme Court. But that doesn’t mean that Democrats don’t have anything to apologize for.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault by a string of women. The evidence of his excessive drinking, his temper, his elitism and snobbery, and his sheer personal repulsiveness grows...

To hear President Donald Trump tell it, Republicans are in great shape ahead of November’s midterms, despite poll after poll after poll favoring the Democrats. In fact, he’s predicting a “red wave” that will keep the GOP in power. And now, much to the Republican National Committee’s dismay, the president’s most diehard supporters are starting to believe him.

While most voters expect Democrats...

House Democrats assume their first majority in eight years tomorrow, but already, they’re hard at work to limit the usefulness of anything they might pass over the next two years.

The Intercept’s David Dayen reported on Tuesday that the House rules package for the next Congress, which will be voted on tomorrow, includes a pay-go (short for “pay-as-you-go”) provision which requires all new...

President Donald Trump kicked off his Tuesday by continuing his quixotic attempt to drive a wedge between Jewish voters and the Democratic Party—this time by quoting Elizabeth Pipko, a former model, Trump staffer and public face of the newly created astroturf organization “Jexodus,” who appeared on Fox & Friends earlier that morning.

Get it? Jexodus. Like exodus, but for Jews—which most...

President Donald Trump surprised White House reporters on Wednesday with an impromptu rant in the Rose Garden, where he yelled about Democrats and Robert Mueller and insisted that “I don’t do cover-ups.”

Reeling off a litany of complaints, Trump—standing at a lectern adorned with a “no collusion, no obstruction” poster—offered his “bottom line” saying, “the crime was committed on the other...

Here’s a word of advice for any men in the House of Representatives who would like to weigh in on the gender dynamics of the Democrats’ ongoing battle over who will be the Speaker of the House: shut the hell up.

Specifically, I’m looking at Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan. As the New York Times reported on Thursday, Ryan—who is trying to undermine Nancy Pelosi’s “she’s got it in the bag, but actually maybe...

Both Democrats and Republicans are claiming huge fundraising spikes after the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation battle. According to a Tuesday report by Axios, the DCCC says it raised $4.38 million “from the end of September to Oct. 5 — the day it was clear Kavanaugh would be confirmed,” while the NRCC says it “saw a 418% increase in online donations in the first week of October compared to the...

A two-year effort to unite the Democratic Party after the divisive 2016 presidential election has resulted in a key vote Saturday to significantly reduce the influence of superdelegates.

At the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting in Chicago, most of the approximately 400 members decided to prevent superdelegates from voting on the first ballot at a presidential nominating convention...

On Tuesday, the New York Times published a truly bonkers story about the head of the Center for American Progress, Neera Tanden, and her many ongoing feuds online with anyone who has ever been mildly critical of Hillary Clinton.

Less logged-on folks might remember Tanden for her suggestion that Libya ought to use its oil reserves to pay the U.S. back for the cost of bombing it. Here, however,...

Now that Attorney General William Barr has both testified and not testified to the Senate and House, respectively, the time for political spin is upon us.

In one corner, we have congressional Democrats, eager to skewer Barr for seemingly lying during his April testimony before the House; admitting he hadn’t actually read the underlying evidence submitted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as...
