Last week, anyone who didn't think "foul play" by Putin after reading reports of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny falling into a coma is either terribly naïve or a Trumpist Republican. And sure enough, after he was rescued an flown to Berlin, he was diagnosed with having been...

There was never any doubt-- at least not among people with 3-digit IQs-- that Donald Trump would be a catastrophic president. He isn't intelligent or even vaguely competent and he is completely self-obsessed and narcissistic. The Democrats gambled that running even a horrible and...

We all know that President Donald Trump’s foreign policy has been a disaster. But is Joe Biden’s any better?

Trump promised to stop America's endless wars but has stationed some 80,000 troops in the Middle East. He pulled out of the Iran nuclear accord,...

Other than nations that have transactional relationships with Trump, the whole world generally detests him. Both friends of the U.S. like the EU countries and foes of our country, like North Korea, look at him like a buffoon. Even if you don't understand German, the video above gives you an...

Earlier today, we looked at how Trump is changing housing laws to normalize his own-- and his family's-- endemic racism. But that isn't the only law he's changing to justify his own ugly behavior patterns. Writing Sunday for HuffPo, Mary Papenfuss warned that Trump wants to change the...
