There is more that unites us than divid...wait, I’ll come in again.

There must be internal polling numbers that look like plague.

@RadioFreeTom  Say white men. It’s easier. Again, I ask for examples of this “radiating disgust” beyond your own head. Of course, she didn’t slap that trans kid over the head so...

@JamesFallows  @jayrosen_nyuT  @Sulliviewhe  front page on the left is utterly indefensible, and inexplicable except in the context of the paper’s 20-year jihad against the Clintons that began with Jeff Gerth’s botched first Whitewater story.

Can’t be shocked. It’s the obvious tactic. This is the business they all have chosen.

@RadioFreeTom  @joanwalshShe  was polling at 1 percent before. This will push her all the way up to 2 percent. A couple dozen people at an Iowa house party?

Explain “perked up,” then. Show your work.

When do they announce that the G7 is going to Turnberry?


Dear Headline Writers: Mnuchin is not “declining a request.” He’s breaking the law.

Let us be clear. The hiring of Steve Bannon as a WH policy adviser is exactly the same as hiring David Duke. Please don't normalize this.

A reminder that, when JFK made the commitment to go to the moon, the top tax rate was 91 percent. When Apollo 11 landed, it was 77 percent. Now we “can’t afford” to pay for anything.

Jon Stewart has gotten conspicuously angry in public twice. The first time, he got Crossfire cancelled. The second time, he got this bill passed. He's already contributed more to American politics than Newt Gingrich has in 30 years.

I am not kidding. We need UN election observers in Georgia...the state, not the country.

Is Rep. Matt Gaetz the biggest schmuck currently gracing the halls of Congress?

If you thought you wouldn't live long enough to hear a president mock a guy going thru chemo for brain cancer, congratulations. You made it.

If you’re using more airtime on Jussie Smollett than on Christopher Hasson, you’re doing TV very wrong.

Let me see if I have this straight. 1) Secret Service busts guy near WH. 2) SS takes guns away and gives them to guy's Dad. 3) Dad gives guns back to kid. 4) Kid shoots up Waffle House. Gun culture is weird, man.
