5 Reasons the Impeachment Hearings Were Must-See TV

5 Reasons the Impeachment Hearings Were Must-See TV

I will admit that my job requires me to watch all of the congressional hearings, all of the pundits rattling off reasons as to why the world and the economy aren’t going to collapse. I’m literally paid to watch members of Congress fumble over themselves to support one of the most corrupt presidencies America has ever seen.

Despite being paid to watch these programs, what The Root doesn’t know...

Trump Won’t Participate in This Week’s House Judiciary Impeachment Hearing Because He Did That Shit

Trump Won’t Participate in This Week’s House Judiciary Impeachment Hearing Because He Did That Shit

Look, it’s time that we stop hemming and hawing around what we know to be the truth: Trump tied Ukrainian aid to dirt on possible Democratic 2020 rival Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. That happened.

Full stop.

What’s happened since then has been a game of let’s see if the GOP can make a mockery of the truth by continuously throwing shit at it until they stink up the entire process. Basically,...

Here Is the Full Text of Donald Trump's Sharpie Lies for the Press

Here Is the Full Text of Donald Trump's Sharpie Lies for the Press

You do not know anyone as stupid as Donald Trump.

Even if you know a baboon with a head injury or have an uncle who dropped out of school in the first semester of kindergarten to pursue a career in the lucrative glue-eating sector, I can guarantee that they are not as rockheadedly dumb as America’s barren-brained embarrassment of a president.

On Wednesday, supplemental visual and written...

Gordon Sondland: Oh Yeah! I Totally Forgot to Tell Y'all About That Quid Pro Quo

Gordon Sondland: Oh Yeah! I Totally Forgot to Tell Y'all About That Quid Pro Quo

After saying there wasn’t a quid pro quo—and then maybe there was—U.S. Ambassador to Not Ukraine finally remembered that he, along with President Donald Trump, Substitute Fixer Rudy Giuliani and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, conditioned U.S. aid and support to Ukraine on their willingness to interfere in the 2020 presidential election.

“Quid pro quo?” said the highest bidder to the European...

As Week 2 of Public Impeachment Hearings Begin, President Trump Says He’ll Consider Testifying in Writing...But Nobody Believes That Lie

With round two of the public impeachment hearings set to begin this week, President Trump said in a Monday morning tweet that he would consider testifying—in writing—for the inquiry as to whether he abused his power when he witheld military aid to Ukraine unless they launched an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

The president was responding to a suggestion...

Trump Got Exposed During the First Day of Impeachment Hearings and His Tax Returns Suffered a Similar Fate

Trump Got Exposed During the First Day of Impeachment Hearings and His Tax Returns Suffered a Similar Fate

If you thought your Wednesday was rough, at least it wasn’t as bad as Donald Trump’s.

While the rest of us trudged through another humpday of ungrateful spouses and crabby co-workers, the Washington Post reports that a U.S. appeals court ruled that Congress can gain access to eight years of Trump’s tax returns:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit let stand an earlier...

The Black Person’s Guide to the Trump Impeachment Hearings

The House of Representatives began impeachment hearings for President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday. While everyone seems to have a different idea of what this actually means, we decided to prepare this handy dandy guide that breaks the process down into digestible language without relying on bullshit phraseology about “American values” and the “integrity of our democracy.”

Trump Foolishly Compares Impeachment Inquiry to a Lynching: ‘Republicans Must Remember What They Are Witnessing Here’

Trump Foolishly Compares Impeachment Inquiry to a Lynching: ‘Republicans Must Remember What They Are Witnessing Here’

Since the conclusion of the Civil War, lynching has been one of the country’s most prominent manifestations of racialized violence. These public displays of terrorism instilled fear in black communities and served as cruel reminders of our “place” in society. And so with all the emotions the mere mention of such a heinous act evokes, leave it to Donald Trump to compare his plight to that of...

Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Blows Up Trump’s Spot on Ukraine Scandal

Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Blows Up Trump’s Spot on Ukraine Scandal

Apparently, we all need to “get over it” when it comes to notions of wrongdoing with regard to Donald Trump using his political office to enrich himself or push his personal agenda.

So said Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, on Thursday when he basically blew Trump’s cover of apparently feigned innocence as to why nearly $400 million in U.S. aid to Ukraine was withheld earlier this...

After a Bad Weekend for Trump, Judge Orders President to Release Tax Returns

After a Bad Weekend for Trump, Judge Orders President to Release Tax Returns

On Monday, a federal judge rejected Donald Trump’s legal arguments that getting 57 percent of white America to vote for a grown-ass man who still uses magic markers makes him immune to criminal investigations, ordering the baboon-brained president to turn over his tax returns to New York prosecutors. The federal court ruling ended a weekend that saw Trump throwing hissy fits about Nancy...

Open Secret? This Time, Trump Publicly Seeks a Foreign Country’s Help in Digging Up Dirt on Biden

Despite being the subject of a House impeachment inquiry over reports he sought the help of a foreign power for personal gain (aiding his re-election hopes), Donald Trump on Thursday publicly asked a different foreign power—China—to do the exact same thing.

Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, Trump said China should launch an investigation into the business dealings of...

Donald Trump Warns There Will Be a Civil War If He Is Impeached

Donald Trump Warns There Will Be a Civil War If He Is Impeached

Donald Trump is shook.

You can tell the “president” is shook because every time he is, he starts flailing on Twitter, tweeting out whatever nonsense he can think of to put up a brave front—but his words usually belie that enormous front and reveal that deep down inside, he is afraid of whatever may be coming next for him.

In this particular instance, what comes next may, in fact, be...
