C-SPAN

More gaslight: Trump’s speech Saturday in North Carolina was one being delivered by the person who incited an act of terrorism designed to overturn the 2020 election. Lapsing into irrelevance, Trump says the same lies: “The 2020 election was definitely the most corrupt election in our history,” Trump claims after...

As each day passes, Trump adds to an already impressive body of evidence arguing that he should be considered the worst president in U.S. history.  But, taking a dispassionate, long view, there are a small number of surprisingly strong contenders for this title.  This history call is depressingly closer than it...
