Much has been written about whether and how Trump’s Ukraine scandal/potential impeachment will affect the campaign of Joe Biden (and other Democratic candidates for that matter). But I think this scandal will present a separate, undiscussed challenge to Mr. Biden’s candidacy (maybe for good or for bad). Oddly
When Fox & Friends wants to ratchet up the rank stupidity a notch or two, they recall Geraldo Rivera from the Smithsonian’s Hall of Old-Timey Mustaches and put him on the air for a few minutes of fatuous, barking-mad pseudo-tough talk. And he doesn’t disappoint.
Oh, my. This could kill him. He might swallow his tongue. And it’s not even a Chicken McNugget. The Washington Post: The former secretary of state, who lost the presidency to Trump, offered a scathing assessment of the president, his 2016 win and the latest
From CNBC: Democratic donors on Wall Street and in big business are preparing to sit out the presidential campaign fundraising cycle — or even back President Donald Trump — if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the party’s nomination. In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar
After some initial hesitation on how to defend Donald Trump from allegations of trying to collude with the Ukraine government to influence the 2020 campaign, when Trump himself had admitted to doing exactly that, Fox News and most of the right-wing echo chamber have rallied
Trump wants Urkaine to manufacture dirt on Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. It’s a smear campaign by Trump that is a replay of “But Hillary’s Emails!” Trump’s latest criminality has finally forced the House Democrats to confront the continue lawlessness of Trump. And even
My first thoughts are a direct result of a joke by comedian Paula Poundstone. Recently I heard her say that the little sticker you receive after you vote should be followed by a question mark; at first, I laughed then I frowned. With the startling,
Maybe this is more personal with Giuliani than we’ve realized. It was Joe Biden, after all, who came up with that infamous Mr. Noun-Verb-9/11 line that, as much as anything, helped sink Giuliani’s own White Hose bid. A desire for vengeance might be what has
Fox News has never cared about having a coherent and consistent message. As a propaganda and disinformation network, it's not Fox News' job to make sense: It's Fox News' job, these days, to cover for Donald Trump. Yet in the wake of the unfolding Ukraine collusion
The first oversight hearings of the Benghazi affair were held two days after the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others at the Iraqi Consulate in September of 2012. The calculated misstatement of fact and intent of the Republican Party was to first disrupt
Tapped to handle damage control on the stunning revelation that Donald Trump aggressively tried to pressure a foreign country to dig up dirt on his possible 2020 Democratic opponent, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo engaged in reckless bouts of misinformation during appearances on Sunday morning
Steve Mental Munchkin was on State of the Union with Jake Tapper this morning when, out of nowhere, the feculent fumes of rank hypocrisy suddenly filled the studio. Attempting to defend Trump’s clearly impeachable attempt to strong-arm Ukraine’s president into investigating Joe Biden, Mnuchin swallowed hard and proceeded
Last month the Kyiv Post, Ukraine’s oldest English Language newspaper, made use of an old American colloquialism when it told Hizdizzhoner Rudy Giuliani in no uncertain terms to Get Lost! “On Aug. 21, The New York Times reported that Giuliani had met with Andriy Yermak, a
So Trump is trying to turn the Ukraine story on Joe Biden. I am sorry but this should have been obvious to anybody with half a brain. I was actually thinking about writing a diary yesterday saying this is what we should expect. I guess
Oh, look! A Biden scandal, once removed, that kind of looks like something resembling a scandal — even though it’s already been thoroughly debunked by numerous fact-checkers! Let’s spend the next six months navel-gazing about it. Hey, it worked with Hillary! She’s not president, is she?
Wow. This story is like a Minnesota 12-layer salad. Stomach-churning, yes. But oddly appealing. And so much unadulterated awfulness to gawk at. The Wall Street Journal is piling on now, reporting that Trump repeatedly pressured Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky in July to investigate Joe Biden’s son,
I have to preface this diary as “nine percent” guy (Warren supporter who has made up his mind already), but I wanted to share this view from The Hill about Elizabeth Warren: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appears to be growing her share of support from black
This is breaking. Needless to say, if this story is nailed down, Trump will look more crooked than ever. Washington Post: A whistleblower complaint about President Trump made by an intelligence official centers on Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter, which has
Until all the facts are revealed (assuming they ever are; Trump’s consigliere, Bill Barr, is on this), we’re left with mere speculation about the whistleblower complaint involving Donald Trump and a foreign leader. Here’s one plausible scenario, from Susan Simpson, a Washington attorney and blogger.
