We now return you to the continuing Big Lie and the punchable face of the GQP. “By deposing @Liz_Cheney they’ve only given her a bigger platform.” And they were so cowardly as to remove her by a voice vote. Republicans in the US House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to remove...

It’s common courtesy, not to mention common sense, to ask someone’s permission before using them in an advertisement. The Trump campaign has no interest in courtesy, sense, or for that matter the law. They put out an ad which took Dr. Fauci totally out of context to make it appear...

Chris Wallace found the Trump speech “flat”.  But didn’t you know that Trump was a “saintly feminist”?

On Wisconsin. Considering all that we already know about Trumpism, his attempts to warp the election will occur until the last vote is counted.
