New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday morning that he had ended his worthless pres

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday morning that he had ended his worthless presidential bid, telling MSNBC’s Morning Joe, “it’s clearly not my time.” Perhaps now he can get back to doing what he loves: Killing rats .

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.

GOP Reportedly Panicking That Voters Are Buying Trump's 'Red Wave' Bullshit

<a href="https://splinternews.com/gop-reportedly-panicking-that-voters-are-buying-trumps-1829134327" data-id="" onClick="window.ga('send', 'event', 'Permalink page click', 'Permalink page click - post header', 'standard');"><em></em>GOP Reportedly Panicking That Voters Are Buying Trump&#39;s &#39;Red Wave&#39; Bullshit</a>

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...

Neera Tanden Is Simply Too Online

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,...

Brett Kavanaugh Appears to Have Lied Repeatedly Under Oath and the GOP Doesn’t Care

Repeatedly Under Oath and the GOP Doesn’t Care<em></em> </a>

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.

Honesty, it seems, isn’t something Republican lawmakers are even remotely interested in when selecting the person to fill a lifetime appointment to the...

House Dems on Tuesday subpoenaed longtime Trump confidant and former White House staffer Hope Hicks, who’s ordered to testify before the House Judiciary Committee June 19. Although the administration has stonewalled all previous House subpoenas by Democrats, Hope, it seems, springs eternal.

On the same night that the Alabama Senate effectively voted to ban abortion, a Senate committee in R

On the same night that the Alabama Senate effectively voted to ban abortion , a Senate committee in Rhode Island—a chamber in which Democrats have a 33-5 majority over Republicans—declined to move a bill forward that would enshrine abortion rights into state law. Great job, idiots.

Recent hacks should make Democrats favor encryption

Last week, the Democratic National Convention was thrown into a tizzy when Wikileaks released a searchable database of thousands of emails from Democratic National Committee staffers. The most ironic of the emails was one from the DNC's head of communications declaring a Buzzfeed article about the organization being terrible at cybersecurity the "dumbest thing I've ever read."

Martin O'Malley says the Democrats are still the party of diversity (despite having 3 white candidates)

The Democratic Party likes to call itself the party of inclusion that embraces an America that is becoming less white every year. But eight years after nominating the country's first black president, the party's field of candidates for the nation's highest office is once again all-white.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is one of those white guys seeking the Democratic nomination, but he...

Very cool to liken your flirting with a presidential run to the conquering of the Aztec Empire by Spanish colonists, which involved slaughtering the Native population by the hundreds and millions dying of smallpox! Right on, my guy!!

Last month, America's top spy chief warned that hackers were targeting the presidential campaigns. That announcement was apparently a movie trailer for this week's release of documents that a hacker says he got from the Democratic National Committee servers, including the party's alleged opposition research on Donald Trump and a purported list of Democratic donors that shows million dollar...

3 White Men Top Iowa Poll of Preferred 2020 Democratic Contenders

153. That’s the combined age of the two white men atop a new Iowa poll of presidential candidates preferred by likely 2020 Democratic caucusgoers. No women and no people of color reached double-digit support. And that’s what we’re facing in our first glimpse of the most critical presidential race of our lifetimes, at least in Iowa.

Turns Out a Federal Jobs Guarantee Is Very Popular and Democrats Should Probably All Run on It

Although big policy ideas are often derided as impractical or impossible by the professional political class, they can actually be quite popular among voters. One such idea that’s gained traction over the last few years is for the federal government to guarantee a job for anyone who wants to work.

New polling data out today by Civis Analytics and Data for Progress found that a federal job...

Frequent readers of this blog already know: We are not fans of Chuck Schumer, or really any leader of the Democratic Party, particularly at the national level.

So it’s with great displeasure that I tell you the senator from New York was re-elected as Minority Leader today. And why not, he’s pretty good at losing!

Do not call the Democrats lame ducks

Do not call the Democrats lame ducks. They are actually good—perhaps even great!—ducks. Treat them as you would the sexy Central Park duck: Feed them bread, or popcorn, and let them fly high as they head South for the winter.

President Donald Trump kicked off his Thursday with an unhinged attack on four separate Central American countries acting, he insisted, at the behest of...congressional Democrats. Oh, and he also threatened to declare martial law in order to entirely shut down the United State’s southern border with Mexico. All before 8 a.m.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has made what The Boston Globe called the “most definitive indication to date” that she plans to run for president in 2020.

Speaking at a town hall in Holyoke on Saturday, Warren said she’d take a “hard look at running for president” after the upcoming midterm elections in November. She cited both the damage that President Donald Trump is doing to the...
