Trump sidesteps court order—really doesn’t want you to see who’s visiting his Mar-a-Lago swamp

When Donald Trump first took office, nearly every weekend he was jetting down to his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, which he (and he alone) dubbed his “winter White House.” He hosted the prime minister of Japan, the president of China and a wave of...

One of the great tricks the Republican Party has been able to play on the United States is their pretension that they care the most about our armed services members. It’s a great trick considering that at every turn, the conservative movement in our...

William Barr proving to be the GOP’s attorney general, not the People’s attorney general

After issuing a wholly insufficient four-page summary of the Russia probe in which he unilaterally (and falsely) declared Donald Trump exonerated, Attorney General William Barr is now cutting Senate Democrats entirely out of his process. Since issuing his summary, Barr has spoken...

Team Trump unraveling: With three major changes in 24 hours, what’s next?

White House press secretary Sean Spicer is out—because apparently working for Anthony Scaramucci is worse than working for Donald Trump. Spicer may be the most high-profile domino to fall in the last 24 hours, but he's the third person in that time...

By a very strange coincidence, Mike Pence just created his very own PAC.  Vice President Mike Pence is launching his own PAC — the "Great America Committee" — to aid his own future political interests, including helping Republican candidates ahead...

What’s In A Name? Lindsey Graham Rechristens Trump’s Wall ‘Metaphor’

With apologies to T.S. Eliot: “The naming of walls is a difficult matter, It’s isn’t just one of your political games, You will think me mad as Trump on the crapper, When I tell you a wall needs at least three different names. First of all, there’s the name that Trump dreamt up at first, “Big Beautiful Wall” from the Mexicans’ purse, Then “artistically designed slats” was his next elocution, But “beaded curtain” was Ms. Nancy’s fine solution. A delusion like Trump’s needs a name that’s much more, A word that is up from a ledge or a door, A word that describes this fantastical chore, So came St. Lindsey Graham to dub it — “Metaphor.” Yes, friends, Metaphor is Lindsey Graham’s newest footnote in political history.  He seems to be on one of his pro-Trump, perhaps Prozac mood swings, because it has been duly noted for some time that Senator Graham demonstrates a peculiar bi-polarity when it comes to Donald Trump. Graham loudly declaimed that “there’d be hell to pay” if Trump bopped Sessions. Then they went golfing and Graham sweetly mewed that Trump deserved an attorney general that he could get along with. Then Graham disapproved of the withdrawal of troops from Syria, which he called “a disaster in the making” but now, the pendulum is back and it’s pro-Trump, and Trump’s Metaphor. I can hear the chants now. Build that Metaphor! Build that Metaphor! And whooooos gonna pay for the Metaphor? Mexico!!! Corrupt government and following Trump off a cliff — sounds like Lindsey Graham is the new Devin Nunes, Lapdog in Chief.
