  • Clinton Calls Out Trump As 'A Canny Manipulator'
    by Susie Madrak on September 26, 2017 at 4:00 pm

    Chris Hayes interviewed Hillary Clinton last night, and they talked about Donald Trump's knowing manipulation of public debate. "This is really interesting to me, because thing is a central analytical question about how this individual operates. because there is these kind of two theories of him," Hayes said. "One is there is this kind of -- he is this kind of accidental maelstrom that the sort of variety of factors in broader American life have put him in this position. And the other is that he is quite a canny manipulator." "I'm with the second," Clinton said. "Sometimes his canny manipulation gets out of control. Even he goes too far. But he was a canny manipulator when he became a birther. That was not accidental. "That was deliberate. He was a canny manipulator when he started his campaign, basically insulting immigrants and calling Mexicans rapists and criminals. And you can go on and on. it was designed to really attach himself to enough of a core of Republican voters and then […]

  • Roy Moore Pulls Out Handgun During Campaign Rally
    by Scarce on September 26, 2017 at 3:46 pm

    The GOP's enfant terrible in Alabama donned full cowboy regalia and whipped out his snub nose .38 revolver during a campaign rally last night. Just because. Source: USA Today The night before Alabama's Senate runoff, Republican candidate Roy Moore pulled a gun out of his pocket at a campaign rally. Per a video of the Monday rally, the former Alabama chief justice said false ads had said he didn't believe in the Second Amendment. "Nearly three months of negative ads that we couldn't answer with money because we didn't have it," he said. "Ads that were completely false, that I don't believe in the Second Amendment." He then paused before pulling the gun out. "I believe in the Second Amendment," he said, leading to cheers from the crowd. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1386288741770-3'); }) […]

  • When Cops Kill Unarmed Black People, Rush Limbaugh Is The Real Victim
    by Steve M. on September 26, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    Ladies and gentlemen, if you have tears, prepare to shed them now, because Rush Limbaugh told us on his radio show today that he's very sad: I want to share with you first the way all of this affected me, because in many ways I think that I am fairly typical. I am smack-dab in the middle of the targeted marketing the NFL does to acquire and hold an audience, right smack-dab in the middle of it. And I have to tell you, I was so sad Sunday morning when all of this started falling out. ... I was personally saddened. I did not watch the National Football League yesterday, and it was the first time in 45 years that I made an active decision not to watch, including my team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was not a decision made in anger. It was genuine sadness. In case you didn't catch that, Rush Limbaugh was sad. He was sad because -- at the age of 66 -- he has lost the ability to worship big, strong jocks as if he were an 8-year-old boy: I realized that I can no longer look at this […]

  • Jimmy Kimmel Talks About His Emotional Weekend Over Health Care Fight
    by Susie Madrak on September 26, 2017 at 1:59 pm

    Jimmy Kimmel gives a recap of the likely death of Graham-Cassidy and said he was happy to go back to talking about the Kardashians. He also thanked Senator Susan Collins from Maine (noting her state is full of killer clowns in the sewers) for announcing her decision to vote against the bill, which means it’s “almost certainly dead.” “Or at the very least it’s on life support, which isn’t covered." Kimmel came clean: It was all part of a nefarious plan. "Here’s what happened: My wife and I were worried about health care. We didn’t like what the Republicans were doing, so we decided to have a baby with congenital heart defects. And then once we had that going for us, I went on TV, I spoke out and we may have stopped Cassidy-Graham. I still can’t believe we pulled it off, but we did. It’s amazing, isn’t it?” he said. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1386288741770-3'); }) […]

  • Newt Gingrich Thinks 'Arrogant Millionaires' Talking About Politics Should Be Left To Him
    by Nicole Belle on September 26, 2017 at 1:00 pm

    It took me so damn long to get through this video. My tolerance for pseudo-academic bullpucky is fairly low, so it was easier to stop the video rather than risk throwing my laptop in frustration. The Fox and Friends crotch couch needed to ask someone their opinion on Donald Trump's desperate attempt to distract from his juvenile and dangerous taunting of Kim Jong-Un, the news that Paul Manafort will be indicted imminently, and that Mueller is now seeking phone records from Air Force One. Of course, they didn't put it that way, but we've seen what happens when rats get cornered: they lash out wildly to try to escape. And who better to understand the behavior of rats than the disgraced ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich, himself of questionable moral rectitude and obligatory Fox News contributor status? Gingrich is currently trying to capitalize on the gullibility of MAGA hat wearers by offering the definitive book on "Understanding Trump" (Surprisingly, it doesn't include a single quote from […]

  • Trump's Fight With NFL Is Distracting From Tax Cuts For Billionaires
    by Frances Langum on September 26, 2017 at 3:00 am

    Apparently, this week was supposed to be about tax cuts for billionaires reform. Whoops. Not when the Congress is trying desperately to unlock Koch money by killing us. And the so-called President has no interest in actual policy. (The White House isn't actually coming up with a tax plan after promising they would for months,) But the conversation above with Bloomberg's Marty Schenker makes a really important point: Steve Mnuchin was supposed to go on the Sunday Shows this weekend to lie about how tax cuts would yield 4% growth in the GDP. The same lie Republican supply-siders have told since the days of George W. Bush. It's a lie, Bloomberg knows it's a lie, the Wall Street Journal knows it's a lie, everybody knows. But it's a lie that lets rich people get their goddamn tax cuts so they keep saying it and then ignoring its blatant falseness. And the lying script of Steve Mnuchin was interrupted by Donald Trump's feud with the NFL... ...which is about race and police […]

  • Trump Fell For Fake News About Iran Launching A Ballistic Missile
    by Red Painter on September 26, 2017 at 2:04 am

    Donald Trump, the moron currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, fell for....ready? FAKE NEWS. Yes, this dolt fell for news that Iran had tested a missile this past Saturday. In response, Trump fired off this tweet (without getting all the facts): Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel.They are also working with North Korea.Not much of an agreement we have! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 Well, U.S. officials report that the video was actually of a launch that took place in January. Oh, and the missile exploded shortly after launch. Interesting timing, as Trump has been doing a whole bunch of "reality show tv" drama by hinting that he may tear up the Iran Nuclear Deal that Obama hammered out in 2015. […]

  • Trump Callously Uses Pat Tillman's Death To Further His Attack On Patriotism Of NFL Players
    by David on September 25, 2017 at 11:00 pm

    President Donald Trump on Monday suggested that NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem were disrespecting a soldier who was killed by friendly fire. After spending the weekend attacking NFL players' right to protest the racist history of the national anthem, Trump appeared to still be upset about the subject on Monday. But one retweet about Pat Tillman was exceptionally thoughtless. NFLplayer PatTillman joined U.S. Army in 2002. He was killed in action 2004. He fought 4our country/freedom. #StandForOurAnthem #BoycottNFL pic.twitter.com/k1FXHRoozY — Ⓙay (@jayMAGA45) September 24, 2017 In fact, football player-turned-soldier Pat Tillman was killed in action, but President George W. Bush's administration initially lied about the incident, blaming the Taliban. An investigation later found that U.S. soldiers had mistaken Tillman for the enemy. […]

    by John Amato on September 25, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    NBA star Lebron James held a presser to explain why he was so critical of Trump's attacks on the Stephen Curry and NFL players over the weekend. Stephen Curry said he was not in favor of going to the White House to celebrate the Warriors championship because of Trump's rhetoric, but a team decision had not been made, Trump then responded with another inflammatory tweet: Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 LeBron James jumped in with a response of his own. U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017read mor […]
