It hurts when they boo–the art of hypocrisy

Great news friends, we live in a post-truth world. Honestly, I thought it would feel more freeing than this, but really I just feel like Mugatu (played expertly by Will Ferrell in Zoolander):  “I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. I INVENTED THE PIANO KEY NECKTIE!!!” Donald Trump made a name for himself in the […]

The Rise of the Alt-Reich

President-elect Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon to a senior White House position has generated significant media coverage, and increased the attention on a group that was deeply involved in propelling Trump to the presidency–the so-called “Alt Right.” Make no mistake, the alt right’s ideology is dangerous—plain and simple, full stop. And, when I refer to “their ideology,” I’m referring to their self-proclaimed positions.

#WhyWomenDontReport

Exhibit A:

A day after Jessica Leeds accused Donald Trump of sexual assault in a story reported by the New York Times, Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs used his large audience on Twitter — roughly 797K followers — to advertise the woman’s New York address and telephone number.

 Exhibit B:

“Take a look. You take a look. Look at her. Look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don’t think so. I don’t think so.” – Donald Trump

Trump Warns: Don’t Make Me Hit You

Josh Marshall (TPM) refers to Donald Trump as an abuser. The description is accurate. In The Abuser’s House: By any pre-2016 standard we know, the entirety of angry, blustering manner would be fatal for a presidential candidate. But we’ve been living with this guy for a year and a half. We all have a little […]

Paul Ryan Tells Donald Trump ‘Bye Felicia’

This is breaking news — that Speaker Ryan has gathered his House Caucus and told them that he will not be defending Trump or campaigning with Trump. He also advised the members of his caucus to do what they needed to do, but he (Ryan) would be working to preserve congressional majorities:

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan dealt a hammer blow to Donald J. Trump’s presidential candidacy Monday, telling Republican lawmakers that he would no longer defend Mr. Trump and would focus instead on defending the party’s majority in Congress.

But in an illustration of Mr. Trump’s powerful grip on much of the party, Mr. Ryan faced angry blowback from conservative lawmakers supportive of Mr. Trump.

If You Ask Me

Interacting with Trump supporters has told me that they are not going to the polls in November to make an informed decision. They’re going to make an emotional choice. They hate Hillary. They hate her because she’s a woman, because she’s white, because she’s wealthy, because she’s intelligent, because she’s stupid, because she makes mistakes, because she thinks she’s perfect, because she has secrets, because she’s done shady things in the past, because people have died under her leadership, because the Clinton Foundation gives only 10% to charity for every dollar taken in. Because her husband’s infidelities are *her* fault. The Republican Party of 2016.
