What Madison Cawthorn Saw at the Insurrection

What Madison Cawthorn Saw at the Insurrection

Madison Cawthorn has a vision of a January 6 that did not happen. One in which he does the noble thing for career and country. He uses his MAGA celebrity for good. He transforms from shitposter to statesman. And he emerges from the U.S. Capitol as America’s savior.Ten days into the 25-year-old’s first term as the youngest member of the House of Representatives, and three hours after voting against the second impeachment of Donald Trump, the North Carolina Republican was in his quarters at the Cannon House Office Building talking about what-ifs and reliving an already historic sequence of...

Ted Cruz’s Former Staffers Are ‘Disgusted’ by His New Low for Trump

Even so, his staffers have tended to hold him in high regard as a kind and geeky man who treated his underlings well even while his fellow senators . Now though “most of Cruzworld is pretty disgusted” with the senator for choosing to back Donald Trump’s absurd claims of widespread election fraud, in the words of one former aide.

The Silence of the Damned

The Silence of the Damned

The first time I walked through the West Wing after Donald Trump’s inauguration, I was confronted with a large photo of the new president mounted on the wall in a stairwell. The image captures him peering out the window of a plane. His lips are pursed and parted, revealing his teeth. He seems to be mid-conversation, maybe mid-word. With his right hand, he holds an Android phone to his ear. The device looks enormous.I remember stopping in my tracks and laughing out loud. When I was in the first grade, my art teacher, Mrs. Smith, asked the class to draw the Mona Lisa and to include in her...

Senior Trump Official: We Were Wrong, He’s a ‘Fascist’

Senior Trump Official: We Were Wrong, He’s a ‘Fascist’

On Friday afternoon, 48 hours after encouraged by Donald Trump in an attempt to overthrow the government in protest of his election loss, a senior member of his administration spoke to me while he was driving to work.“This is confirmation of so much that — things that a lot of us thought were hyperbolic. We’d say, ‘Trump’s not a fascist,’ or ‘He’s not a wannabe dictator.’ Now, it’s like, ‘Well, what do you even say in response to that now?’”For four years, people like this official — lifelong Republican operatives — have convinced themselves that Trump’s obvious faults were worth tolerating...

The Full(est Possible) Story of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Press Event

The Full(est Possible) Story of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Press Event

On the afternoon of November 13, Mike Siravo was standing outside his family’s landscaping business in Northeast Philadelphia, dressed in khakis and a company polo shirt, watching as strangers pulled up in nice cars, parked without care on the busy street, and approached the barbed-wire-topped fence with iPhones gripped in outstretched hands. They all came for the same reason: to see for themselves the words FOUR SEASONS TOTAL LANDSCAPING. SINCE 1992. PARKING ONLY. ALL OTHERS WILL BE TOWED AT OWNERS’ EXPENSE. In packs, they laughed openly. Alone, they wore bemused expressions, eyes focused...

The Final Gasp of Donald Trump’s Presidency

Donald Trump going out with a limp seems like an oxymoron,” a senior adviser to the president told me. In width and in word, in soaring skyscrapers and Brioni suits and arena rallies and various euphemisms for great (yuge, bigly), the man has been defined by and obsessed with largeness. His presidency is ending small.Trump is guided by instinct on most days, but the final year of his presidency was marked by something unusual: He wasn’t sure what to believe or what to do anymore. At first he feared Joe Biden, then he thought he was a joke, and then the joke was on him. By the summer, Trump...

Arizona Is Ready to Toss Trump — and the Rest of the GOP

Arizona Is Ready to Toss Trump — and the Rest of the GOP

is now a part of New York Magazine.As far as demonstrations go, it wasn’t much, just three white women on the side of the road in Scottsdale, Arizona. One waved an American flag. One held nothing at all. But had asked God for a sign of encouragement, he couldn’t have done better than the third woman, who raised above her head a halo of red poster board on which she’d scrawled three words that, for the president and his supporters, amount to the most hopeful message of the campaign: “HUNTER’S LAPTOP MATTERS.”If Trump is to win reelection, the three women of Scottsdale Road would have to...

It was Saturday, October 3, and while his doctor had told the outside world that the president’s symptoms were nothing to worry about, Trump, cocooned in his suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, was telling those close to him something very different.“I could be one of the diers,” he said.The person on the other end of the line couldn’t forget that unusual word the president used: dier.

The Chaotic, Desperate, Last-Minute Trump 2020 Reboot

The Chaotic, Desperate, Last-Minute Trump 2020 Reboot

For the two and a half years that he was in charge, a Brad Parscale sighting was always news at Trump campaign headquarters in Rosslyn, Virginia. Parscale is six-foot-eight with a dagger of a beard and thorns for ears that give his head the shape of a spiked club, like a medieval morning star. So you can’t really miss him. But “there were times Brad might not be there for two to three weeks,” one campaign official told me. “If he wasn’t meeting with the president or going on the road, you weren’t seeing him. He was only around for the high-profile, celebrity things.” “He was never there,”...

The barricade sliced Lafayette Square in two: a line of police officers, dressed in riot gear, on the side closest to the White House, and the demonstrators, dressed in face masks, spilling out onto H St., stationing themselves in the grass or in trees, or on the steps of St. John’s church.As the crowd grew, so did the chaos.

What It’s Like to Be a Melania Trump Expert

What It’s Like to Be a Melania Trump Expert

I’d never been on Executive Foxtrot One, the presidential aircraft used to transport members of the First Family, when I ascended its red-carpeted stairs and boarded the cabin last spring to travel to a Nashville children’s hospital with Melania Trump. But thankfully, I was seated near Kate Bennett, a frequent Foxtrot flier and correspondent for CNN. Bennett is maternal and glamorous and cool, and I relied on her, asking her how things worked here and why they work this way and collecting from her the kind of precious details you can only get when you are physically there all the time,...

A Conversation With Rudy Giuliani Over Bloody Marys at the Mark Hotel

A Conversation With Rudy Giuliani Over Bloody Marys at the Mark Hotel

As the black SUV came to a stop on 33rd Street in Manhattan, its lights flashing, a pale hand stretched through the open window of the passenger door and gave a little wave. It was attached to Rudy Giuliani, who smiled from behind his tortoiseshell sunglasses. He apologized for being late. “Couldn’t go on sidewalks like I used to,” he said, mourning a perk of his past life as mayor. It was early in the afternoon on Sunday, December 8, and Giuliani had just returned from Ukraine, where he said he was looking for information to undermine the case to impeach his client, President Donald...

Mayor Pete Is the Democrats’ Folksiest Heartland Hope. Really!

Mayor Pete Is the Democrats’ Folksiest Heartland Hope. Really!

By the time Pete Buttigieg arrived at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, on the night of April 5, the space was at capacity and the crowd had swelled to fill half the parking lot. It was drizzling, but word quickly spread that Buttigieg would speak before heading inside, so those denied admission stayed put, preparing to lift up their phones to document this moment in the twilight, when the suddenly famous mayor of a small city in a state they’d probably only ever visit by accident or under force would make the case for his campaign to be the savior who delivers America...
