Trump thinks the country is already unified, cites his rally crowds as proof

Two cheers for Mitt Romney’s Lincolnesque moment

One day after he cast his historic vote to remove President Donald Trump office, Utah Senator and former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has continued to receive accolades for his principled and lonely stand. But Romney didn’t merely buck his Party of Lincoln in becoming the first Senator to ever vote to convict an impeached president…

A look back at the impeachment and conviction of Barack Obama

As President Trump’s legal team wrapped up its impeachment defense on Tuesday, all eyes turned to the issue of witnesses. But whether or not the mounting revelations surrounding former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book are sufficient to spur Republican defections in the Senate, there is little doubt Donald Trump will be acquitted by…

Trump makes MLK Jr. Day about him, because of course he does

Sigh. x It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY.

Biden says he'd consider naming Obama to the Supreme Court

I’d love to see this for three reasons: 1) I love Barack Obama, and his presence in public life simply makes us better, 2) it would be sweet revenge for the Merrick Garland travesty, and 3) there’s a pretty good chance that, if it happened, Donald Trump would swallow his own tongue. The Daily Mail:…

With yesterday’s big news about impeachment, I wanted to highlight another big thing that happened yesterday: Hundreds of veterans of Barack Obama’s campaigns and administration have signed on to endorse Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president, as multiple Democratic presidential candidates compete to claim the popular former president’s political coalition and legacy. With the Iowa caucuses less than two months…

Do We Really Need Obama 2.0?

Yes, we cannot criticize Barack Obama.  Democratic voters simply will not tolerate any dissing of Obama.  I’m in the distinct minority that thinks Obama wasn’t all peaches and cream, but it will be up to history to judge Obama, not some cranky old progressive from Kentucky.  But do Democratic voters want to go back to…

Impeachment hearings confirm Republican Party is detached from reality. What does the press do now?

Republicans proudly advertised their radical ways during Wednesday's impeachment hearings into Donald Trump, wallowing in conspiracies and embracing debunked claims. The question now: How does the Beltway media cover a party that has aggressively removed itself from reality? How does the news business describe and treat a political party that routinely echoes the most unbelievable claims…
