donald trump could name the worst possible candidate to replace james comey at t


mike rogers and trey gowdy are partisan hacks, but john cornyn stands out in sheer shamelessness. it’s hard to know what the next big dramatic turn in president donald trump’s reality series will be. he’s always got a surprise or two up his sleeve. the casting of the new fbi director certainly has everyone on the edge of their seats. remember that trump does indeed “audition” people for these jobs, rather than vet them, and chooses them for their looks and personality rather than their experience or qualifications. so some of the people on his supposed list are very unlikely choices. i would guess that a woman, for instance, wouldn’t have the image he seeks in an fbi director.james comey is a tough act to follow. he looked like the quintessential g-man, although his 6-foot-8 height may

'we have an obligation to speak about donald trump's mental health issues... our


"malignant reality is taking hold" in american politics, says psychiatrist bandy lee, who held a conference on trump's mental health. president donald trump is a clear and present danger to the united states and the world.he has reckless disregard for democracy and its foundational principles. trump is also an authoritarian plutocrat who appears to be using the presidency as a means to enrich himself and closest allies as well as family members. trump’s proposed 2018 federal budget is a shockingly cruel document that threatens to destroy america’s already threadbare social safety net in order to give the rich and powerful (even more) hefty tax cuts. his policies have undermined the international order and america’s place as the dominant global power. it would appear that






proof comey's testimony was a turning point in trump's presidency


nothing the fbi director said was all that explosive — but he left the white house and republicans reeling. on msnbc’s monday edition of “hardball,” washington post columnist david ignatius claimed that yesterday’s house intelligence committee hearing with fbi director james comey and nsa director michael rogers was “a turning point” in the growing “russia” scandal. at the time of the hearing i wouldn’t have thought so. not that the testimony wasn’t dramatic. it was. director comey categorically denied that there was any evidence of president trump’s inane accusation that president obama ordered trump tower wiretapped, and confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation into possible “coordination” between trump associates and russian government actors over interference in the president

trump & friends’ war on african american women


a pattern is emerging in the administration’s scandal-defense playbook: go after black women. t’s no secret that a toxic combination of misogyny and racism helped donald j. trump win the presidency. never mind dog whistles and code—trump proudly displayed his contempt for women and non-white people throughout his campaign. but another likely helper to that victory was one whose involvement trump and his allies would prefer to have kept under wraps: the government of russia, a u.s. adversary.bubbling for months, the story of russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign on trump’s behalf caught fire when, on march 20, fbi director james comey announced in his open-session appearance before the house intelligence committee that members of the trump campaign and other trump associates
