Republicans Are Going To Pay Dearly For Trump’s Family Splitting Policy

Posted in Politics

With the midterms only five months away, Republicans around the country are in full panic mode after the Trump administration decided locking children up in cages and separating them from their parents was a good political move.

Kris Kobach Loses Voter Fraud Lawsuit, Is Ordered To Go Back To School

Posted in Politics

Last June, The New York Times described Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as one of the most fearsome Republicans in the country. His attempts to crack down on fictional voter fraud problem in Kansas, and his appointment as Chairman of Donald Trump’s Commission for Electoral Integrity made him a force to be reckoned with in national politics.

Here’s Yet Another Example Of Trump Treating His Loyalists Like Illiterate Rubes

Posted in Politics

Sometimes it’s difficult to know whether Donald Trump is stupid or if he’s exploiting the naivete of his fanboys. I suppose we have to evaluate each blurt and each tweet on its own, whether he’s being a moron or whether he’s feeding viral talking points to his Red Hat army. Today, as Trump wandered around the north lawn of the White House fielding questions from the “fake news,” there...

Outlasting Trump’s Mental Illness And The Art Of Effective Resistance

Posted in Politics

Andrew Sullivan has perfectly put into words the terrifying predicament the clearly mentally unwell president has put much of the country in: The president believes what he wants to believe, creates a reality that fits his delusions, and then insists, with extraordinary energy and stamina, that his delusions are the truth. His psychological illness, moreover, is capable of outlasting anyone else’s mental health. Regardless of how true this might...
