It’s sick. So, so sick. But that’s what Republicans are all about these days: inspecting children’s genitals. It’s pretty much all they talk about—when they’re not talking about Mr. Potato Head. And his starchy, androgynous genitalia. They’re so into it, in fact, they’ve passed bills that would allow them to scrutinize any...

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.
