This Just Gets Worse and Worse

This Just Gets Worse and Worse

Speaking with reporters outside the White House before jetting off to his private golf club in Bedminster, NJ, on Friday, President Donald Trump backtracked on his bogus backtracking from his weeklong racist rants against Rep. Ilhan Omar and other members of “the Squad,” calling their behavior a “disgrace” and insisting they have no right to criticize the United States.

“I don’t know, I...

Rand Paul Offers Actual Journalist a Deranged Journalism Lesson

Rand Paul Offers Actual Journalist a Deranged Journalism Lesson

Sen. Rand Paul, alleged “aqua buddha” worshiper and avowed liberty-defender , has some Very Serious Thoughts about journalism, which he helpfully shared with Jeevan Vittal—an actual professional journalist—during a painfully uncomfortable stroll through the Capitol hallway on Thursday evening.

They are, and I’m (only slightly) paraphrasing here:

Don’t ask me questions.Watch Fox News.That’s it....

Hannity Offers Most Ridiculous Defense of 'Send Her Back' Chant Yet

Hannity Offers Most Ridiculous Defense of 'Send Her Back' Chant Yet

When he’s not moonlighting as President Donald Trump’s personal policy advisor , sentient haircut Sean Hannity finds time to bravely lie with impunity—something he did with gusto on his Fox News show Thursday night, when he insisted the MAGA chuds chanting “send her back” at the mere mention of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s name weren’t, in fact, doing just that.

“I don’t think they were saying ‘send...

Elijah Cummings Explodes at DHS Secretary Over Abuse of Detained Children

While this week’s news cycle has largely focused on President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and the rest of the progressive “squad” of freshmen congresswomen, it’s important to remember that the Trump administration is still pushing its abominable efforts to punish and disenfranchise communities of color—a fact that House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah...

Omar Responds to Trump's Racist Rally Chants: 'He Is a Fascist'

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar called it like it is on Monday amid President Donald Trump’s ongoing racist attacks against her and other members of the so-called Squad of progressive Democratic freshman congresswomen.

“I believe he is a fascist,” Omar told a crowd of reporters as she walked down a DC street, less than 24 hours after a smug Trump sat back to enjoy an arena-full of supporters...

McConnell Is Fine With Trump's Unhinged Racism

McConnell Is Fine With Trump's Unhinged Racism

Less that 24 hours after President Donald Trump smirked his way through his raucous crowd chanting “send her back” amid his ongoing racist attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on Fox Business to insist that everything is good and fine and hey, Trump’s doing great!

Speaking with Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning, McConnell said “the president’s onto...

Lindsey Graham's Pathetic Attempt to Spin Trump's Racism

Lindsey Graham's Pathetic Attempt to Spin Trump's Racism

Here’s a fun attempt to spin Donald Trump’s racism from die hard presidential kiss-ass Sen. Lindsey Graham:

I really do believe that if you’re a Somali refugee who likes Trump, he’s not going to say ‘go back to Somalia.’ A racist says go back to Somalia because you’re a Somalian or you’re a Muslim or whatever, that’s just the way he is. More narcissism than anything else.

Graham’s insight,...

Trump and Epstein Look Awfully While Chummy Ogling Cheerleaders in Newly Unearthed Video

President Donald Trump’s efforts to distance himself from alleged child molester Jeffrey Epstein  hit a snag on Wednesday, as newly unearthed footage shows the two yukking it up while ogling NFL cheerleaders at a party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in 1992.

The video, which aired this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, features the now-president and Epstein clearly enjoying each other’s company,...

Alabama Republican Thinks There's Entirely Too Much Gay Sex and 'Wife Swapping' on TV

Alabama Republican Thinks There's Entirely Too Much Gay Sex and 'Wife Swapping' on TV

When disgraced former State Supreme Court justice Roy Moore announced he was tossing his oversized cowboy hat into Alabama’s upcoming Senate race, I assumed—reasonably, given his long , long history of doing insane things—that any subsequent election bullshit in the Yellowhammer state would largely be focused on him. I was wrong.

Folks, meet Republican Senate candidate and current Alabama...

GOP Leaders Choose Trump's Very Racist Hill To Die On

Trump Absolutely Isn't Letting This Go

Trump Absolutely Isn't Letting This Go

We’ve entered day three of the president doubling down on his overtly racist attacks against “the Squad” of four Democratic congresswomen of color—Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley—after demanding the group “go back” to their own countries on Sunday morning.

Let’s go, unfortunately, to the tweets from this morning:

Here’s Trump Screaming Racist Lies in Front of a Boat

On Monday, Trump used a nautical backdrop to insist that his grotesquely racist comments about Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tliab, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley were totally fine and good, actually.

“Not at all,” Trump said, when NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell asked if his Sunday tweets demanding the progressive representatives “go back” to where they came from were racist. (

As North Carolina grapples with dueling federal lawsuits regarding its controversial, and potentially unconstitutional HB2 "bathroom bill," one local community has taken matters into their own hands—by letting teens arm themselves with pepper spray every time they use the toilet.

The Rowan-Salisbury school district this week voted to amend policy language that would allow students to carry...

Trump Won't Back Down From Vile Racist Attacks on Freshman Democrats

Trump Won't Back Down From Vile Racist Attacks on Freshman Democrats

For the second day in a row, President Donald Trump attacked the quartet of freshmen Democratic congresswomen of color—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tliab, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley—continuing this weekend’s racist tirade , in which he demanded the largely American-born lawmakers “go back” to where they came from.

Trump overtly racist tweets, which have received virtually zero...
