Trump sycophant Lindsay Graham just said on national television that if Trump doesn't get what he wants, we must declare war against North Korea and destroy them. We are talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of human casualties here. We should be terrified.

The author of this “opinion” piece works for Sinclair. That’s all you need to know.

"Trump is essentially boiling the frog," @Indira_L says. "You know, that old parable about how you turn up the heat slowly on the frog until he doesn't realize it... We need to sort of wake up before we're cooked."

One of the stranger pieces I’ve read: WH aides were unable to stop Trump from ripping up important papers and throwing them in the trash or on the floor. Armed with rolls of clear Scotch tape, staffers would put the pieces back together

This is a 'wow' tweet from the ex-Prime Minister of Belgium.

Did @FoxNews just say “a meeting between two dictators”?

Fire at the warehouse where uncounted votes from Iraq’s last election are stored. Coincidental timing! (Hi Vlad. You’re terrible at this!

Didn’t Nazis do something like this?

What I heard from the women being held at the federal detention facility today was saddening and disturbing. They cried so much. Every asylum-seeker should be immediately released, reunited with their children and connected to legal services. Anything less is cruel and barbaric.

In March 2014, our favorite beauty pageant impresario boasts of how well Putin treats him. And explains how the invasion of Crimea reveals Putin’s smarts and Obama’s weakness.

"The people of Crimea, from what I've heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were."

The President’s irrelevant and baseless arguments against the #ACA won’t stand in court. We’re intervening to protect the health care of millions of Americans.

Fellow Republicans, this is not who we are. This cannot be our party.

Felt the need to get back over to the FDR Presidential Library today. They are displaying these US Government posters from 1943.

‘A miserable place to work’: Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly looking to leave White House

"Very nearly every elected member of the Republican Congress has chosen Trump and party over our country. It is shameful."

When the US sends its people to Singapore, they're not sending their best people. They're not sending experts. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing conmen. They’re bringing Nazis. They’re bringing warmongers. And some, I assume, are morons.

EPA’s climate change website went down a year ago for ‘updating.’ It’s still not back.

BREAKING: It is not the Canadian Prime Minister's job to make POTUS "look strong" before the world.

In @GlobeIdeas: Tariffs have a variety of downstream consequences. Some of those are now buffeting the newspaper industry.

Your wrong-headed protectionist policies & antics are damaging our global standing as well as our national interests. Your worldview does not represent American ideals. To allies & friends: Be patient, Mr. Trump is a temporary aberration. The America you once knew will return

Donald Trump Looks And Acts Mentally Ill, Says CNBC Correspondent John Harwood

The Massachusetts Senate has passed a "red flag" gun control bill that would allow family members, roommates, current and former romantic partners, and police to ask a judge to take away a dangerous person's guns for up to a year.

Fox & Friends host slips: Trump's North Korea summit is a 'historic meeting between two dictators'.

Florida didn't conduct national gun background checks for more than 200,000 concealed-carry purchases, over more than a year, because an employee couldn't log in to the system, and nobody followed up


The world is laughing at US

Boycott the Republican Party


Russia's economy isn't even in the top 10. (California's economy is bigger than Russia). Why Russia?

Remember: Mercers and Bannon produced a dossier filled with Trump’s mafia ties. Still hasn’t seen the light of day

Our national security relationship with Canada is vital and saves American lives. It was built over generations and is bigger than any person or dispute. This too shall pass.


European leaders are outraged by Trump over his refusal to sign the G-7 statement. But they’re not surprised.

This is pretty wild. Trump is saying that his steel and aluminum tariffs, which are officially being imposed on "national security" grounds, are actually a response to Canada's milk protectionism.

House Speaker Paul Ryan at Orrin Hatch gala in SLC: "There’s a lot of talk about impeachment from this resist crowd. I wonder if anybody’s told this resist crowd that next in line is Mike Pence, then me, then Sen. Hatch."

My latest - The Madness of King Trump on Full Display at the G7

JUST IN: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will impose retaliatory measures to answer President Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum: "Canadians: we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around."

Dick Thornburgh, ex-Att’y General and lifelong Republican: "We must all speak out and work to protect the special counsel’s investigation from interference. As Republicans, we owe that much to our party. As citizens, we all owe even more to our country."

PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!
