There is no creature in American politics more puzzled over by Democrats than the angry, forgotten Trump voter. How can we reach them? How should we speak to them? Here’s a wild idea: fix their problems.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions believes it was wrong for federal judges to block both of President Trump’s executive orders banning travel from several Muslim-majority countries and temporarily blocking the admission of refugees from Syria.
Say hello to our Elderly Lego Man Vice President, wearing his varsity Vice Presidenting jacket and standing, with an intensity reserved almost exclusively for constipation sufferers, near the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea. Supposedly, Pence wasn’t meant to go outside during his visit to the DMZ,…
The Time 100 is the magazine’s annual list of 100 “titans,” “pioneers,” and influential “artists.” What it really gives us, though, is the kind of sinister power pairings that only Time (or, you know, the current world order) could bring together. Think of it as the evil saluting the evil.
The Latino judge who Donald Trump criticized on the campaign trail because of his ethnicity will preside over a high-profile immigration case this week.
It is the 20th day of the fourth month, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions will never 420 blaze it because he believes, contrary to growing medical and scientific consensus, that marijuana is extraordinarily dangerous.
Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox spent millions of dollars and more than a decade protecting Bill O’Reilly from allegations that he abused and harassed women, but all at once this week it became enough.
Earlier today, House Oversight Committee Chairman and Benghazi enthusiast Jason Chaffetz announced that he would not seek reelection to public office in 2018. While this is surely a blow to fans of incompetent investigations and ineffectual letter writing, the Chaffetz-heads out there need not worry quite yet. Because…
Dear Senator Feinstein, I come with a simple message: please retire, ma’am.
Fun fact: Bret Stephens’ book America in Retreat was blurbed by Bill O’Reilly, who called it “An important book for your well-being.”
Donald Trump won’t release his tax returns. Why? Hard to say for sure in this vast and mysterious world of ours, but it could be because they might expose the extent of his business entanglements, the existence or (more likely) nonexistence of his charitable donations, how little he pays in taxes, or his actual net…
El gobernador del estado de California, Jerry Brown, concedió indultos este fin de semana para tres veteranos de guerra que fueron deportados tras ser condenados y pasar tiempo encarcelados por delitos que cometieron en el estado.
Two months ago, Jeanette Vizguerra moved into the basement of the First Unitarian Society Church in Denver in a desperate effort to shield herself from deportation. She hasn’t gone outside since, afraid that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are waiting to arrest her and tear her away from her three young,…
Donald Trump seems to be having difficulty keeping his thought processes aligned. Previously, it seemed that for most of his statements the default mode was simply to lie, regardless of the outcome. I used to believe that this was intentional, a strategy used to gaslight the American public. So many in his White House…
Violence has broken out yet again at a pro-Trump “Patriots Day” rally Saturday in Berkeley, CA. At least nine people have been arrested so far, The Mercury News reported, as hundreds of Trump supporters and anti-Trump demonstrators openly brawled in the city’s Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park.
President Donald Trump may have fled once again to his plutocratic personal safe zone that is the Mar-a-Lago, or as he calls it, the “Southern White House.” But he has to be watching the news. And he must be thinking, but the generals told me if I just started bombing things everything would be all right.
The weekend is just getting underway in the U.S., but already I have to say it was a good day.
This, I guess, is the next issue of The Atlantic, a fancy magazine for men who aspire to be on panels.
