Steve King Is Having an All-Out Meltdown After Basically Condoning Rape and Incest

Steve King Is Having an All-Out Meltdown After Basically Condoning Rape and Incest

If there’s anything resembling a silver lining to Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King’s deeply racist , intensely misogynist rantings, it’s that there’s very little subtext involved—no hidden meanings to parse, or deeper truths to uncover.

Still, just because King proudly wears his far-right-wing ideology on his sleeve, that doesn’t mean his bouts of hateful bombast are always coherent. Take,...

Trump Fat-Shamed His Own Supporter at Unhinged Rally in New Hampshire

Trump Fat-Shamed His Own Supporter at Unhinged Rally in New Hampshire

Look, I don’t know how else to say this: President Donald Trump made a dumb fat joke—accidentally aimed at one of his own supporters—after a small group of protesters interrupted his New Hampshire rally on Thursday night.

“That guy has a serious weight problem,” Trump said.

“Go home, start exercising,” he continued, as security officials began escorting the protesters out of the arena. “Got a...

Trump Can't Help but Try to Reignite an Ancient Feud With the Mayor of El Paso

Trump Can't Help but Try to Reignite an Ancient Feud With the Mayor of El Paso

When president Donald Trump visited El Paso last week, he did more than simply force himself into ghoulish photo ops with a community still reeling from the August 3 mass shooting  that left 22 people dead, he also made time to be an asshole to the city’s Republican mayor.

In an interview with PBS Frontline published on Wednesday, Mayor Dee Margo said Trump went out of his way to insult him...

Trump Aides Reportedly Worried Global Recession Could Tank His Re-Election

If you haven’t already heard, we might all be standing at the precipice of a global economic recession—a chilling prospect that’s deeply concerning to anyone mildly interested in not going totally broke.

But, if you’re in the close orbit of Donald Trump, there’s an even more pressing worry beyond the risk of total financial ruin: the fact that a world-wide economic shitstorm could be pretty...

I’ll admit I’m no financial expert but I’d guess that when the stock market tanks 800 points in a single day, it’s bad! Are we on the verge of a global recession? Maybe ! Should we worry when the president’s response is to rant about a “CRAZY INVERTED YIELD CURVE”? Absolutely.

Eric Trump: Media Down With the Sickness

Eric Trump: Media Down With the Sickness

Eric Trump, the larger and blonder of the president’s two adult sons, appeared on Fox News’ Fox & Friends Wednesday morning to absolutely destroy the lamestream media for the sin of ignoring the fact that people at the Iowa State Fair this weekend put handfuls of corn kernels in a bowl representing his dear, sweet papa.

“It’s called the ‘corn kernel poll,’ right? Everybody puts a kernel of...

Trump Can't Stop Won't Stop Speculating About Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein

Trump Can't Stop Won't Stop Speculating About Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein

President Donald Trump half-heartedly walked back his tacit endorsement of the baseless conspiracy theory that Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved in accused child rapist Jeffrey Epstein’s jailhouse death before fanning the flames on the conspiracy theory once more.

He told reporters on Tuesday that “that was a retweet, that wasn’t from me” as if somehow blasting out unfounded crackpottery...

The Second Democratic Debate Is Already on Its Petty Bullshit

The Second Democratic Debate Is Already on Its Petty Bullshit

The second night of the second round of Democratic primary debates kicked off on Wednesday, and right out of the gate, things got real petty, real fast.

As the candidates were introduced to the stage, former Vice President Joe Biden leaned in to greet Sen. Kamala Harris and—either unaware that he was speaking into a microphone or still totally oblivious to the fact that he’s got, shall we...

Racist Kris Kobach Puts Out Deranged Video About How He's Not a Racist

Former Kansas Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach—a racist grifter who can’t even spell his own name right —released a new video on Wednesday, attempting to head off any criticism of his deeply bigoted past ahead of his 2020 Senate campaign.

Radiating an overpowering “dad who isn’t angry, just disappointed” vibe, a casually dressed Kobach calmly insists in the video that the...

Trump: Everyone's Called 'Racist' Now, So I'm Definitely Not

“I think the word has really gone down a long way...
