Donald Trump explains why it’s okay to call Donald Trump a liar

“That wouldn’t have been true, but I would have said it anyway.” Donald Trump’s greatest asset is our good intentions. It may be his only asset that he hasn’t mortgaged. Who knows?

Why Democratic politicians shy away from addressing race

Racism hurts everyone and until we start pointing that out, we can’t fix the economy Donald Trump isn’t going to give up “identity politics” — but some on the left think Democrats should about a “post-identity liberalism” in order to focus on winning over those 70,000 mostly white voters who gave Trump his narrow wins in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, […]

Hillary Clinton in Michigan August 11, 2016.

The best/worst thing about 2016? We assumed a woman would be elected president.

How least qualified man beat the most qualified woman History will probably only remember it for purposes of mockery but something amazing happened in 2016 — and no one seemed to notice how remarkable it was.
