How the Many Faces of Maxine Waters’ Shade Stole the House Dems Impeachment Announcement

How the Many Faces of Maxine Waters’ Shade Stole the House Dems Impeachment Announcement

We don’t deserve Auntie Maxine.

The California Democrat is serving her 15th term in the House and she’s not done. At 81, she’s still the most vocal and has proven herself to be the biggest thorn in President Trump’s side because, make no mistake about it, Maxine Waters was the first person to speak out shortly after Russia handed Trump the election in 2016, to make clear that she had no...

Our Democracy Is at Stake in 2020 and Young People of Color Are Paying Attention

Our Democracy Is at Stake in 2020 and Young People of Color Are Paying Attention

Congress held public impeachment hearings last week on whether President Trump abused his power to enlist a foreign government in smearing his political opponent. While some may see this process as far removed from their day-to-day lives—a parade of old white men being accused of crimes, defending other old white men who may have committed crimes, or attacking those speaking out against the...

Speaker Nancy Pelosi Says Trump ‘Leaves Us No Choice But to Act’ on Impeachment

Speaker Nancy Pelosi Says Trump ‘Leaves Us No Choice But to Act’ on Impeachment

And so it begins.

On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she’s asked that articles of impeachment be drafted against President I Did That Shit. Sure impeachment without removal from office is about as damaging as a public indecency charge from 1994; it’s not going to really do anything but it’s embarrassing if it comes up in a job interview.

But it’s happening and it’s a...

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,...

President Face-Skin Doesn’t Match His Neck-Skin Calls Impeachment Hearings a ‘Big Time Hoax’

President Face-Skin Doesn’t Match His Neck-Skin Calls Impeachment Hearings a ‘Big Time Hoax’

Stop me if you’ve heard this before.

Seriously, stop me.

Why aren’t you stopping me?

The president got in front of cameras with his face all orange-y and his neck all white before leaving to go to London to argue some NATO shit that he doesn’t understand and told the cameras that the impeachment hearing is all a big hoax.

And because the president wasn’t done, he then got on Air Force...

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

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.”

Revenge of the Blerds: Howard Bests Harvard Debate Team for 2nd Year in a Row

The Howard Bison clashed with the Harvard Crimson in Hartford, Conn., last week as part of the 10th Annual State NAACP Conference “Great Debate”—an intercollegiate battle of the minds that is the largest of its kind in the country. In front of an audience of 10,000 people, the real HU’s debate team beat Harvard for the second year in a row.

Republicans Bumrush Impeachment Inquiry With MAGA Lives Matter Protest

Republican lawmakers staged an impromptu protest against the Constitution on Wednesday, intentionally obstructing justice and delaying testimony from a key witness in the impeachment inquiry investigation into crimes that Donald Trump and White House staff already publicly admitted to.

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...

‘I Will Be the Hero’: Giuliani Goes Off on the ‘Morons’ Giving Him the Side-Eye for His Role in Trump’s Impeachment Woes

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s ever-vociferous mouthpiece, is apparently feeling most unappreciated for all he did on behalf of his boss to put him in danger of being impeached dig up dirt on one of his rivals for the Oval Office, and says history will prove him right, damnit!

“Anything I did should be praised,” Giuliani ranted in an interview Thursday with The Atlantic.

Nancy Pelosi Announces Plans to Launch Impeachment Inquiry

Metia hates the grits pot.

Whenever it was time to tidy up the house, all the kids in my family had a specific job. Even when our cousins came to visit, they knew the rules. Some people mopped, others swept and we all took turns washing the dishes after a meal. My older cousin Metia was born with a superpower that enabled her to clean a kitchen in less than 2.3 minutes. She probably could have...

Trump's Impeachment Just Became One Step Closer to Reality After House Judiciary Committee Sets Guidelines

Trump's Impeachment Just Became One Step Closer to Reality After House Judiciary Committee Sets Guidelines

If only Operation Trump Gotta Go was as easy as signing a Change.org petition and changing all the locks in the White House. Sadly, impeachment proceedings are a bit more arduous than that—though it would appear that the Lord heard our cry and he pulled a few strings to expedite the process.

From CNN:

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday approved a resolution defining the rules of the...

Top Conservative Calls for Chief Justice’s Head Over High Court’s Ruling on the Census Citizenship Question

Top Conservative Calls for Chief Justice’s Head Over High Court’s Ruling on the Census Citizenship Question

Because (obvi) any Supreme Court justice handpicked for the job by GOP conservatives owes strict allegiance to the Constitution conservatives everywhere, the head of the nation’s oldest conservative advocacy group is calling for Chief Justice John Roberts’ impeachment.

Matt Schlapp, chair of the American Conservative Union, was apparently livid upon learning that Roberts had sided with...

Trump Is Obsessed With the 'I-Word'—and No, the 'I' Doesn't Stand for Idiot

Trump Is Obsessed With the 'I-Word'—and No, the 'I' Doesn't Stand for Idiot

President Trump knows that the Democrats are split on whether or not to start impeachment proceedings, and while he’s reportedly convinced he won’t be impeached because, in his words, he’s done nothing wrong, that hasn’t stopped him from becoming fixated with the idea, both good and bad, of impeachment.

He’s even come up with a name for it that he uses at all the Klan rallies and official...
