Despite President Trump’s endless fear mongering about the dangers of undocumented immigrants, his company often failed to check the immigration status of its own employees. Earlier this month, the Trump Organization fired a dozen undocumented workers from the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, NY. Many of the employees had spent years on the Trump Organization’s pay roll before...

It’s no surprise that the guy who refers to himself as the “Trump before Trump ” knows how to grease the Trump family’s palms.

After several months of requesting travel expenses from the now former governor of Maine, Paul LePage, a Republican opponent of social services and a bigot, the Portland Press Herald finally got its hands on receipts, thanks to Freedom of Access Act requests.

Allen Weisselberg, the guy who has long managed Trump’s business affairs, is probably more likely to anyone to know where the Trump Organization’s metaphorical (we hope) bodies are buried. If we’re lucky, he’ll soon be testifying to the House Intelligence Committee, according to Politico.

Weisselberg has worked for the Trump family for 40 years, making him an expert on their finances and...

It feels like it took me a lifetime to work my way through this bizarrely friendly piece up on Politico today about the guy who taught Donald Trump how to tweet, so now I must foist it on you.

The story opens in medias res in February 2013, with our apparent hero, the young (now former) Trump Organization social media manager Justin McConney, realizing that his monster has become...

With Donald Trump occupying to Oval Office, it’s easy to fall down an endless hole of scrutinizing his every move for some deeper, more profound motivation. Is he appeasing the urgings of his white nationalist base? Enacting some 13-dimensional political master stroke that only a select few YouTube channels and Reddit boards understand? Is he kompromat???

But more often than not, the...

The current season of Donald Trump’s White House has seen the return of Trump collaborator and showboat Rudy Giuliani, who in less than a week has managed to create even more legal jeopardy for the president.

It remains to be seen what the endgame is for the former mayor of New York, but one gets the sense that the controversy he is creating—in which he legally exposed Trump to campaign...

Working in the Trump White House sounds awful. Imagine the most erratic and abusive boss you’ve ever had, but if you don’t watch him closely enough, he might end human civilization as we know it. No wonder Trump staffers are constantly leaking to the press and moaning about their lack of dating prospects.

But there are some perks to working for the worst president of all time. According to...
