Trump’s refusal to recognize the results of the election is based not on “baseless claims” - but lies. Just because some supporters believe the lies does not change the fact that they are lies.

Re-upping: Even if "massive [ballot] dumps" (I can't believe I just typed that) were true, the subsequent canvass, audit, and/or recount processes would have identified inconsistencies. And yet the outcomes were consistent in GA, WI, PA., etc. The proof is in the paper ballots.

Today is a sad day in The Hartford Courant’s history. We were just told will close our Broad Street office, with no plan to find us a new one. We are indefinitely without an office.

"Populism" means the president and his friends and family get to do crimes and get away with it. No one who knows anything about populism could disagree that it's fundamentally about elites escaping consequences for their behavior.

Typical Trump attempt to buy the appearance of success with other people’s money. And also particularly irritating for authors who actually write their books and don’t manipulate sales with bulk purchases.

The House is debating federal decriminalization of marijuana right now. Listen to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) on the glaring racial disparity of possession vs. arrest/prosecution rates. "It's a stain on our democracy."

Trump raised more than $170 million since Election Day by urging supporters to donate to an “Election Defense Fund.” In reality, a large share of the funds have paid off the Trump campaign’s debt and fund his future political operation.

Flashback: despite backing Donald Trump at almost every turn, Barr still isn’t safe from Trump’s demand for total fealty. You cannot appease this president and still keep faith with facts or decency or democracy.

In which I connect Trump’s threat to veto the National Defense Authorization Act to an explanation of Section 230 (why Ds and Rs want repeal for diff reasons) with the renaming of Confederate-inspired bases (Trump opposes) to the legacy of the Lost Cause, and how it echoes today.

Most coverage of the pandemic focuses on public policies like masking and social distancing. But equally important is your personal policy: the building of diet and fitness habits that will keep you healthy and less likely to be wrecked by the virus.

Aww - thanks Dana. But if anyone’s looking info on Trump’s threat to veto The National Defense Authorization Act if it doesn’t kill Section 320 - and how Trump’s opposition to the bill’s proposed change to Confederate named bases echoes the Lost Cause - we’ve got you covered.
