remember

Lately, I feel like the whole world is Green Acres and I’m Mr. Douglas. (I grant you my references are ancient. Is there a more contemporary reference I can use? Something on the TikTok, perchance? I’d ask one of my nieces or nephews, but they’re old, too.) Anyway, it just feels like...

Former Fed Chair Janet Yellen will be nominated as Treasury Secretary. Remember that Trump though Mnuchin lifted some Russian sanctions during the Mueller investigation on one Russian oligarch in particular, affecting steel and aluminum tariffs.

The best example of that is removing as campaign manager, Brad Parscale, the real manipulator of the real and imagined 2016 data-sets in the swing-states. What is normal functioning for Trump has been disinformation, as he...

From Chris Cillizza at CNN: North Carolina Republican Sen. Thom Tillis has a theory about the 2020 election that you need to hear. “The stakes are very high this election, but you know why I know we're going to win?” Tillis said in a speech at the North Carolina Republican virtual convention...

Ooh, boy. Trump is going to lose whatever scintilla of a mind he has left. The senior Trump administration official who wrote that anonymous (and utterly scathing) New York Times column in 2018 — come on, you remember the one — is publishing a new insider’s account of the Trump administration...
