After all of the uncertainty around why Vice President Mike Pence abruptly canceled a trip to New Hampshire earlier this month, we finally have an explanation from Politico: He was slated to shake hands with an ex-NFL player who allegedly moved more than $100,000 of fentanyl across state lines.

Wedding Crasher President Drops In on Deranged Trump-Themed Nuptials

Very busy businessman President Trump stopped by not one but two events for a MAGA-themed wedding (a cursed phrase if there ever was one) that started at his New Jersey golf club over the weekend.

Trump dropped in on wedding events for PJ Mongelli and Nicole Marie Mongelli on Saturday night, where attendees took selfies with the president and he hugged the bride. As Fox News reported Sunday...

Things are testy between the Catholic Church and ex-Trump staffer Steve Bannon at the moment. Reporting today from ThinkProgress, on how Bannon and the group CatholicVote used phone data location to target voters who’d been to Catholic Iowa churches with ads, likely won’t help matters.

Trump Stops Pretending He Opposed Racist Chant and Starts Smearing Ilhan Omar Again

Trump Stops Pretending He Opposed Racist Chant and Starts Smearing Ilhan Omar Again

Because this is a story that won’t die, President Trump opened up a predictable new front in his war against Ilhan Omar and the progressive Squad on Friday by attacking the “crazed” media for covering his supporters’ racist rally chants at all.

Trump tweeted:

Trump was referring to his supporters chanting “send her back” at his mention of Omar at a rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night,...

LOL: Anthony Scaramucci, perhaps the shortest-lived member of this administration, was uninvited from a Palm Beach County GOP fundraiser for criticizing Trump’s remarks about Ilhan Omar . “We believe the tweets were not racist, the president is not racist,” the chair said. Cursed country.

Trump Tries to Blatantly Lie His Way Out of Responsibility for Omar Chant

Trump Tries to Blatantly Lie His Way Out of Responsibility for Omar Chant

After days spent hurling racist attacks at Rep. Ilhan Omar spilled into his supporters chanting “send her back” at a rally last night, President Trump on Thursday distanced himself the vitriol he helped stir up by ridiculously trying to pretend he disapproved of it and tried to stop it.

According to the White House pool , Trump said of the chant, which was a clear take on his earlier remark ...

Ilhan Omar Is a Class Act in the Face of Trump's Racist Hatred

As the braying masses chanting “send her back ” in response to to Donald Trump’s criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar have willfully forgotten, there’s a real person on the receiving end of those attacks. And the Minnesota congresswoman is responding to this unprecedented new round of racism like a class act.

During Trump’s rally in Greenville, NC, during which he went on an extended anti-Omar...

Fox News Runs Into a Good Argument for the Green New Deal Like a Racecar Hitting a Wall

There are many, many good arguments in favor of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey’s Green New Deal . But the briefest explanation of what it is—a set of proposals intended to stave off a climate change-driven hellworld—also provides the best rationale for why it’s worthy of serious consideration.

This is self-evident to people who’d like to be alive and living above water in 40 years. So...

As is usually the case, President Donald Trump made a big dumb fool of himself while meeting with a foreign leader. But on Wednesday afternoon in particular, he spent at least part of his time at the White House with the Emir of Kuwait spewing his complaints about veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s explosive new book about the administration.

According to reporters who were in the Oval Office...

FOLKS: We’ve got a real primetime matchup for you today in the boy wonder division. Two fairly insufferable—although in totally different ways—journalists are DUKING IT OUT over who fucked up the Rod Rosenstein story today more.

As Hurricane Florence barrels toward the Carolinas today, Politico reports that the Trump administration’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) chief, Brock Long—you know, the guy tasked with brilliantly coordinating our response to natural disasters as well as we did in Puerto Rico—is under investigation into whether he misused official cars.

The militant white supremacists behind some of the most racist corners of the internet are planning efforts to intimidate black voters across the country, Politico reported on Wednesday.

Organizers told the site that they plan to hand out alcohol and drugs in the “ghettos” in Philadelphia—a scheme that a racist would presumably think could lure black people away from voting—and boasted that...

Here's a Bunch of Republicans Desperately Trying to Escape Talking to Sexual Violence Survivors

Now that the FBI investigation into the Brett Kavanaugh allegations is underway, we’ve reached a bit of a lull in the process after last week’s emotional testimony. But activists were on Capitol Hill on Monday to righteously badger Republicans about why they’re still backing Kavanaugh—actions which yielded a number of videos of elected officials literally running away from sexual violence...

A Wall Street Journal op-ed published Tuesday made the push-pull defense we’ve seen among Brett Kavanaugh’s defenders disgustingly explicit, arguing both that this could all be a vast liberal conspiracy designed to tank Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, and that even if Kavanaugh did what he’s accused of doing more than three decades ago, it still doesn’t matter.
