Lara Trump: Most Americans have never even heard of the Kurds, so whatevs

The moral depth of these people is breathtaking. On Monday, Lara Trump — who’s married to Donald Trump’s fourth-favorite tragic mistake — appeared on Fox News at Night. The show’s host, Shannon Bream, asked her what she thought of a New York Times story (“Trump Followed His Gut on Syria, Calamity Came Fast”) that excoriated the…

CNN Debate: You're a Frontrunner When Everyone Takes a Swing at You.

Actions speak volumes over words, and the punches thrown by the Democratic presidential candidates at Elizabeth Warren tonight scream, “She’s the frontrunner!”  I don’t give a shit how often they say, “Polls don’t matter!  I meet all kinds of people out on the campaign trail…blah, blah, blah.”  The rest of the crowd on that stage tonight…

Fortune Cookie economics: Peter Navarro's alter ego is no hand grenade

Like David Brooks and Thomas Friedman, conservatives use (non-) fictional everymen in their writing. WH adviser Peter Navarro is no different: his is the thinly disguised Ron Vara, no different than David Dennison or John Barron. Today the Comical of Higher Education takes Peter Navarro to task for his sinophobia which only got attention from the WH…

Sen. Murphy: Fiona Hill testified that there was a quid pro quo

Yeah, this seems significant: 🚨Fiona Hill describes this scene: In a White House meeting, Sondland tells Ukrainians they will get a Trump meeting if they open the investigations Trump wants. Then, Sondland follows the Ukrainians out of the meeting to privately make clear he's talking about Hunter Biden. — Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) October 15, 2019…

Some Predictions About Tonight's Democratic Presidential Debate.

Safe Bets For Tonight: It’s hosted by CNN and NYT, so the questions to the candidates are going to suck. The moderators want this to become a professional wrestling match, so look for lots of questions crafted to spark fights among the candidates. I predict Erin Burnett will ask Warren and Sanders about how they…

Trump angrily tweets, 'Impeach the Pres.' Sure, if you say so

This dunce. Just out: MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME IS AT THE HIGHEST POINT EVER, EVER, EVER! How about saying it this way, IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY! Also, MORE PEOPLE WORKING TODAY IN THE USA THAN AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY! Tough numbers for the Radical Left Democrats to beat! Impeach the Pres. — Donald…

LOL. Fiona Hill Didn’t Just Drop a Dime on drumpf, She Opened the Le Petomane Thruway.

>@RepDennyHeck on Fiona Hill's 10 hour testimony today: "If the woman doesn't have an eidetic memory––total recall–– she's very close to it." That's very bad news for Trump and Rudy Colludiani. Very, very bad. 😏cc @Delavegalaw @GottaLaff @Kris_Sacrebleuhttps://t.co/mfzCGlUtUs — Polly Sigh (@dcpoll) October 15, 2019 Fiona Hill’s attorney’s letter to the White House informing them…

close general elections favor Republicans, unless the Electoral College is dissolved

Newsweek reports that a new study finds that inversion elections where a popular vote winner loses, favor the GOP. 2020’s hope for Individual-1 lies in a repeat of marginally close outcomes in swing/battleground states. GOP candidates for president can expect to be victorious in 65 percent of future presidential elections and University of Texas at Austin researchers…

I wrote a lesbian sports fiction eBook!

I haven’t written a full story here on DailyKos in a while, and that’s because I’ve been busy writing an eBook under my full legal name, Aaron Apollo Camp. I can now say that my eBook has been published, and it’s an amazing accomplishment to write a book and have it published! My first eBook…

Liz Cheney blames slaughter of Kurds on … Democrats

Well, she didn’t specifically call out Obama or Hillary Clinton, but give it a few days. On Fox News this morning, Liz Cheney, a Republican congresswoman from Wyoming and the daughter of the massing heap of discarded organs and tissue that used to be Dick Cheney, blamed Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria on — you guessed…

Trump talks Turkey: sternly-worded threats, tweeted loudly

Trump has now made threats against Turkey, having tried to bluff Erdogan and failed, again, as Axios reports. Unfortunately, Trump cannot erase a crisis of his own making with initiatives that will take weeks to implement while people die. This raises more questions about conversations between Trump and Erdogan especially since Russia completed a new…
