Thanks for the reminder that Trump could kill millions with a single order, in between tweets.

Rush Limbaugh just said he and other Republicans are not racist because they’d be perfectly fine with a country run by Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele and Clarence Thomas. Rush is one of those white people who thinks if you can list the “good ones,” you’re not racist.

Only an utterly corrupt government would consider hosting an international meeting at a Trump resort, putting money in the president's pocket.

If you cared about children at the border, you wouldn't be a Republican. Obviously, Doug, you only care about power, no matter the cost.

"Antifa attacks terrorize the country!" --Promo this morning for Laura Ingraham's show on Fox. The real danger to this country is Fox/Trumpism. They are selling fear to manipulate Americans. They have no conscience, no shame.

Giuliani is sharing an InfoWars story. That’s right — InfoWars, the outfit that said Sandy Hook was a hoax. The Trumpublicans keep lying more and more, piling on the propaganda. They are assaulting both truth and our democracy.

The strongest economy in decades and Congress still can’t balance a budget. The one time when Republicans and Democrats can agree is when they’re sticking huge debt on future generations.

Illinois Republicans thought it would be clever to post this art online. They might get someone killed with crap like this. As outrage grew, they took it down. The Chicago Tribune's Rick Pearson has the story:

“Upholding western civilization” was the phrase most often used by white supremacists to defend their actions during the civil rights era. There is exactly zero chance that Stephen Miller is unaware of that.

This story was a tough reporting assignment. These nationalists (who insist they’re not white nationalists) demand maintenance of a white-dominated culture while claiming they’re not racist. So you either mock them as ridiculous or legitimize them by taking that notion seriously.

Why does the New York Times write headlines suggesting there’s a nice way to hate black and brown people?

Since you’re a New Yorker, why don’t you ask the Central Park Five whether Trump is a racist. And that “garbage” accusation is a Trump lie. You know that Trump lies as often as he breathes — that’s why you wouldn’t let him sit down with Mueller.

Decades from now, Ronna, people will remember that you stood for racism and the erosion of American values at this crucial juncture for our country.

It's not anti-semitic to oppose Bibi Netanyahu's corrupt apartheid regime. Nor is it anti-water to oppose hurricanes, or anti-purple to hate eggplant.
