Report: Trump Thinks His Attempts to Steal the Election Are Rip-Roaringly Hilarious

Report: Trump Thinks His Attempts to Steal the Election Are Rip-Roaringly Hilarious

As you’ve likely heard by now, Donald Trump has spent months trying to undermine confidence in the election, a plot that reached a crescendo this week when he to commit to a peaceful transfer of power and called for “the ballots” to be thrown out so that he can just be declared the winner. Obviously, the remarks were deeply disturbing to people who don’t want to live under an authoritarian regime reminiscent of Turkmenistan. But for Trump? Well, apparently he thought they were a real gas.The Daily Beast that, according two people familiar with the matter, Trump was glued to the cable-news...

You don’t need to wait for Trump to roll down Pennsylvania Avenue on a tank in green fatigues with a...

“You’re in a Different Universe With Donald Trump”: Can Joe Biden Steer Debate Night Back to Reality?

“You’re in a Different Universe With Donald Trump”: Can Joe Biden Steer Debate Night Back to Reality?

Chris Van Hollen tried to make Joe Biden mad. Didn’t work. Van Hollen tried to confuse Biden. No luck. Then again, this was 2012, when Biden was the incumbent vice president, and Van Hollen was playing the part of Republican veep nominee Paul Ryan in mock debates. Whatever you may think of Ryan’s politics, the congressman was at least a coherent thinker and speaker. “What I was trying to do was to throw a lot of stuff at Biden that might come his way,” Van Hollen, who is now a U.S. senator from Maryland, tells me. “So you come up with the most outrageous things that Paul Ryan might say, and...

How Gabby Giffords Survived a Shot to the Head, and Outsmarted the NRA

 “I rode the bike.”Ding.“I rode the bike.”Gabby Giffords smiles as her iPad chimes. Sentence formed. Way too easy. The smile is magnetic, if slightly crooked: Her dimples burrow a little deeper on the left side. Her left eyebrow is more expressive, while the right looks permanently arched.Gabby sits at her cozy breakfast table in an aquamarine sweatsuit and Ruth Bader Ginsburg socks that read “I DISSENT.” It’s hour two of speech therapy, and the iPad’s voice recognition helps journal her day. A summerlike day in Tucson, two weeks before Christmas, it began with the ride around her...

The Pentagon Reportedly Blew Its $1 Billion Coronavirus Budget on Body Armor and Planes

The Pentagon Reportedly Blew Its $1 Billion Coronavirus Budget on Body Armor and Planes

Hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars Congress intended for pandemic relief were instead diverted for military spending, with bailout cash used to produce products like jet engine parts, body armor, and dress uniforms. For a period of time, the Washington Post , the $1 billion fund that Congress gave the Pentagon via the Cares Act to “prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus” was on track to be used for its original purpose, with $750 million for medical resources and $250 million for defense contractors. That was what Ellen Lord, Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and...

Is the CIA Suppressing Russia Intel To Protect Trump's Precious Feelings?

Is the CIA Suppressing Russia Intel To Protect Trump's Precious Feelings?

Whether it be because his campaign in Moscow’s election interference —  — or simply because the idea that he needed anyone else’s help to win the White House , Donald Trump has long been sensitive to matters relating to Russia. He has stood in the way of efforts to secure future elections. He has cheered a retaliatory probe into the origins of the Russia inquiry, one that could also — conveniently —  in the final stretch of this year’s race. So imposing is his aversion to intelligence about Russia, it seems to have actually filtered down into the intelligence community itself.According to...

“Noise Favors Trump”: How the Biden Camp Plans to Leverage the SCOTUS Fight

“Noise Favors Trump”: How the Biden Camp Plans to Leverage the SCOTUS Fight

It was early Friday afternoon, and we were talking about possible surprises that could disrupt the 2020 presidential race. Philippe Reines, a longtime top aide to Hillary Clinton, mentioned the Durham investigation, Attorney General William Barr’s ongoing probe into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 attempt to divine whether Russia was trying to help get Donald Trump elected. “If Durham’s report turns out to be about John Brennan and Jim Clapper and Andrew McCabe—sure, fine, that’s not going to transform the race,” Reines told me. “But it’s noise.

Report: Trump’s Favorite Puppet Master Is Behind an Anti-Biden Smear Campaign

Donald Trump has repeatedly insisted that he has been on Russia than any of his predecessors. So it might seem a bit curious that its leader, Vladimir Putin, is so hellbent on getting him re-elected. The Washington Post’s Josh Rogin on Tuesday that the CIA has concluded Putin is likely personally overseeing an influence campaign meant to damage Joe Biden, a plot that has also included a Ukrainian lawmaker and Russian agent linked to Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer.“We assess that President Vladimir Putin and the senior most Russian officials are aware of and probably...

Joe Rogan Apologizes for Spreading Bogus Antifa Wildfire Conspiracy: “I F--ked Up”

Joe Rogan, the podcast king who recently moved his show, and its millions of listeners, to Spotify, treated them to a debunked right-wing conspiracy theory by asserting that “left-wing” activists are behind the wildfires currently raging across the West Coast. After insinuating that Black Lives Matter and anti-fascist protesters’ nightly clashes with police in Portland “[crowd] madness,” Rogan, without citing any evidence or official accounts, said that authorities have “arrested people for lighting forest fires up there. They’ve arrested left-wing people for lighting these forest fires.”...

“This Nomination Is a F--k-You to the Left”: Trump Campaign Is Itching for a Culture-War Fight Over SCOTUS Pick

As Donald Trump was considering who should succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court in the summer of 2018, he met for lunch with Sean Hannity and Rudy Giuliani at his private golf club in West Palm Beach. According to a source briefed on the conversation, Hannity and Giuliani argued that Trump should nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a federal appeals court judge and Notre Dame law professor, because her conservative would mobilize the president’s base. “Hannity and Rudy said, ‘You’re going to have a confirmation fight anyways, so pick Barrett,’” the source said.

Trump Warns 2020 Election Will Be “the Scam of All Time” (Unless He Wins)

Trump Warns 2020 Election Will Be “the Scam of All Time” (Unless He Wins)

As part of a recurring feature of his presidency, Donald Trump took to a podium in the White House Friday afternoon to rattle off a string of incoherent lies. Kicking things off with a COVID-19-based rant, Trump once again insisted a vaccine is just around the corner and that Joe Biden has “,” because the Democratic nominee has said he would only get the immunization , and not simply because the guy banking his reelection on it says it’s good. Then the snarled and rat-chewed synapses in his brain fired off this:“In a short time we’ll have a safe and effective vaccine and we’ll defeat the...

“One of the Most Significant Potential Conflicts of Interest in American History”: How Everyone From Foreign Governments to Federal Contractors Is Quietly Lining Trump’s Pockets

In the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District, a few blocks from the Transamerica Pyramid Center that defines the city’s skyline, sits a 52-story tower, the kind you might find in any major city. Its name, 555 California Street, is as forgettable as its appearance, all brown and black and boring. Inside, a team of security guards watches over the elevator banks in the lobby, checking IDs.To get past them and into the heart of the building, I signed up for a desk in a coworking space on the 49th floor. Once there, I rode down to a different floor, the 43rd, and walked off the elevator....

As Trump attacks democratic norms and undermines the electoral process, and Attorney General William Barr stokes fear of “a socialist path” if Trump loses, historians are hearing distressing echoes of Adolph Hitler’s rise, from the fearmongering demonization of the left to the threats of street violence and military force against enemies both real and imagined.

For months, Donald Trump and his administration’s law enforcement officials have made an aggressive, concerted effort to portray anti-fascist protesters as a highly organized group that poses a grave domestic terrorist threat. As Black Lives Matter protests erupted in late May following the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the president made the that the U.S. government “will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.” Last month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf about why the “leaders of antifa and BLM” have yet to be...

Remember, in June, when the federal government attacked peaceful protesters in a park across from the White House, firing stun grenades, setting off smoke bombs, shoving demonstrators with batons and shields, and allegedly spraying the crowd with tear gas—which the administration denies—because Donald Trump wanted to do ? At the time, the White House insisted that the use of authoritarian tactics was in response to violence and that the protesters were given ample warning to disperse, but contemporaneous accounts by people who were actually there said otherwise. The scene was so chilling...

Of all of Donald Trump’s servile employees willing to put his extremely fragile ego above the country, William Barr may very well be the most dangerous. (Well, tied with the guy who did a Facebook Live video the president’s supporters to prepare for an insurrection.) The thing about the attorney general is that he’s not just a sycophant willing to do Trump’s dirty work—he actually knows how to go about it. Apparently seeing himself as Trump’s personal lawyer in the mold of Roy Cohn, Barr has spent his time at the Justice Department the Mueller investigation; involving the DOJ in to keep the...

“We’re Not Going to Let Donald Trump Steal This Election”: Democrats Are Strategizing for All-Out 2020 Warfare

“We’re Not Going to Let Donald Trump Steal This Election”: Democrats Are Strategizing for All-Out 2020 Warfare

Donald Trump, true to form, is stoking chaos, trying to undermine faith in the accuracy of November’s election. He has floated  at the 2020 polls and maintained a steady stream of lies about “rigged” mail-in ballots. Joe Biden’s counteroffensive is shaping up to be equally in character: It relies on his trust in rational process and in projecting calm. It’s a strategy that makes a great deal of sense—and also feels quaint considering Trump’s evil genius for asymmetrical warfare.Biden has solicited the help of two former solicitors general, one former attorney general, and a small army of...

Even in a news landscape where it feels like nothing is shocking anymore, the first excerpts from the new Bob Woodward book still landed like a pair of hydrogen bombs. It wasn’t so much the revelation that President Donald Trump had privately acknowledged the danger and severity of the novel coronavirus, even as he was significantly downplaying and minimizing the threat in remarks to the American public. Of course he’d said something like that. We hear all the time about hard-to-believe things Trump said, either from people describing the president’s conversations anonymously to reporters,...
