Donald Trump got really weird on Twitter yesterday, “supporting” Huma Abadin for leaving Anthony Weiner, but at the same time making it all about Hillary Clinton by association. Because reasons and deflection. Since Huma has access to classified information, Trump opined on the Dori Monson show that her sexting husband, Weiner must know “much of this… Continue Reading →
David Plouffe, Obama’s campaign manager, called Trump a psychopath. Chuck Todd scolds David Plouffe for calling Trump a psychopath? Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, appeared on Meet the Press and said Donald Trump met the clinical definition of a psychopath. Chuck Todd ran to Trump’s defense. He immediately balked at Plouffe. Just before Plouffe’s analysis about… Continue Reading →
Joy Ann-Reid is my hero of the week — again. This time, she shut down right-wing Trump apologist Alfonso Aguilar, who spent the entire 7-minute segment pretending that Donald Trump doesn’t mean to be racist; it just comes out that way. And then Aguilar showed his own true colors, when he barked about Margaret Sanger at… Continue Reading →

Chris Matthews invited Joan Walsh, Andrew Weinstein, former press secretary to Newt Gingrich, and Michael Steele, former director of the RNC onto Hardball to discuss today’s heated back-and-forth between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump over Trump’s connections to white supremacists and fringe conspiracy theorists. He began with Michael Steele, but to me, the moment he badgered… Continue Reading →
Paul Begala has had it with those who say Hillary Clinton somehow engaged in “Pay to Play” with the Clinton Foundation. The AP story is so full of holes, and the attacks so partisan, that the whole argument reeks of desperation both of a media that insists on a “both sides” narrative to the campaign, and… Continue Reading →
Charlie Sykes, a prominent conservative radio host in Wisconsin who’s vehemently anti-Trump, is doing some soul-searching, according to Politico: Charlie Sykes’ conscience is nagging him. Since last year, the most influential political talk show host in Wisconsin has found out just how hard it is to be a #NeverTrump conservative on right-wing radio…. Sykes’ many arguments… Continue Reading →
If you assumed that if Hillary Clinton did something horrible, I would write about it. Doing debunking pieces feels pointless, because the people who want to see nefarious motives always will, no matter what. Yet I soldier on!
Re: Clinton Foundation and arms sales “scandal” — 4-turd bullshit award.

You can read here, or you can refresh your memory with the fact that the State Department does not have the right or ability to unilaterally award arms deals.
By the way, we already went through this with the so-called uranium deal, yet another fake scandal.
All arms deals are governed by the Foreign Military Sales Act and the Arms Exports Control Act, implemented by Executive Order 11958. It delegates authority to the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense, and requires consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the U.S. International Development Cooperation Agency, Director of Arms Control, Disarmament Agency — and requires congressional review.
Do you really believe the House GOP was helping HRC sell influence?
Did Colin Powell suggest that Hillary Clinton should use her private email account as secretary of state—as he had admittedly done in that same job several years earlier? Last week, The New York Times confirmed that Powell did offer her precisely that advice, based on an account in my forthcoming book on Bill Clinton’s post-presidency. Yet… Continue Reading →
It might have been a hit if it had been on earlier. It was too intelligent and low key for late night — smart people need their sleep.
I’d say I was going to miss him, but the sad fact is, I was usually asleep by the time he came on.
But when I did see it, I really enjoyed it. Thoughtful, intelligent and not white, which was a refreshing change.
Why does Trevor Noah still have a show?
