The measure of someone’s character is best taken not in the times of success, but in times of adversity. Since Donald Trump's life took a pronounced turn for the worse after the November 6th...
The world is laughing at Donald Trump. That isn't to say that they aren't afraid of the global damage he can do, but in the moment his buffoonery sometimes supersedes that. A month ago,...
Well, it looks like there’s no chance in hell that Trump can discredit Bob Woodward and his new book given the accuracy of his past reporting and his famous “fly on the wall” technique… Rick Wilson, a Republican political strategist, had this to say: When I was a young aide in the DOD, Bob Woodward was […]
As Charlie Pierce asks, what does this man have to do to prove to the world he’s a Russian agent, puppet, asset, – put on a fur hat and dance the chechotka on the Truman Balconey?
