"Come on, Franken!" Colbert said during his Late Show monologue. "I guess there are no good people left, so let's just get it over with. Just tell us whatever you did, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, Tom... [Read More]

Love him or hate him for it, Scott Pruitt has done as much as anyone else in the executive branch to advance President Donald Trump's goal of what Steve Bannon called "the deconstruction of the administrative state." The head of the Environmental Protection Agency has worked overtime to roll back many of Barack Obama's proudest achievements. Even with a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, the former president couldn't pass cap-and-trade legislation. Because Republicans controlled the House for six of his eight years, Obama leaned heavily on executive action to push his environmental agenda. That made his victories much more... [Read More]

Like presidents before him, Donald Trump sees his appointments to the federal courts as an important part of his legacy. But he is moving with unseemly haste to fill the 145 current vacancies — some of which exist only because the Republican-controlled Senate blocked former President Barack Obama's nominees — and appears to be exalting ideology and partisanship over professional credentials.So far four of those nominees have been rated "not qualified" by the...

On a day where yet more disturbing, dismaying, and downright disgusting details emerged of powerful men acting like assholes toward women, Stephen Colbert took time out of his Thursday Late Show monologue to muse, "I guess there are no good people left." Seemingly resigned to the fact that, any goddamned day now, we'll see another formerly admirable figure knocked off his pedestal by a stomach-churning push notification, Colbert urged possible future fallen idols like Tom Hanks, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, and Malala Yousafzai to spare him the suspense and just get it over with. (Note: As off press time... [Read More]
