Let’s stop helping Trump lie

Let’s stop helping Trump lie

Betsy DeVos owes taxpayers at least $100,000. And we owe her our contempt.

The Trump Administration has no plan for the 21 million they hope to uninsure — but they do have a plan to gut Medicare

What’s keeping Trump’s base in place? Strategic Racism

The biggest mistake we can make is forgetting what Trump is good at Despite his relentless efforts to screw anyone who isn’t a billionaire and betray the nation in general, Donald Trump’s appeal to his shrinking party remains durable and inexplicable to many rational minds.

Call Trump’s attacks on Biden, and any Democratic candidate, what they are — birtherism

Call Trump’s attacks on Biden, and any Democratic candidate, what they are — birtherism

Trump knows propaganda works, which is why sticking together is our only hope Donald Trump’s attacks are all the same attack. His political career was born out of the baseless, racist assertion that Barack Obama couldn’t possibly be a citizen.

Expecting the 2020 election to save us from Trump is the worst bet in American history

Expecting the 2020 election to save us from Trump is the worst bet in American history

Underestimating Trump’s advantages and motivations got us here and could cost us everything We need to be as determined to save our democracy as Donald Trump is to save his own ass. If we lose in 2020, the authoritarianism we’re already bumbling toward will become enforced by law. Trump will complete the Republican takeover of the federal judiciary and cement […]
