President Donald Trump's Oval Office style dominated U.S. headlines in 2017, but readers were particularly perplexed by his use of the word "covfefe," in what turned out to be one of the oddest news stories of the year. Trump left it up to the reader to divine his meaning, with a follow-up... [Read More]

Finally, Democrats are getting their act together on sexual harassment and assault. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has resigned, and Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) has said that he is also going to step down shortly. This goes a considerable distance toward the party reclaiming the moral high ground on sexual assault and harassment. But they shouldn't stop there. Democrats should follow this basic plan when it comes to other serious problems like the plutocracy that is feasting on the American innards: First clean house, then pin the problems on Republicans, then win and fix the problems. Franken's... [Read More]

As if we needed yet another reminder of what it's like to be in the AFC East and not be the New England Patriots, consider what took place yesterday afternoon in snowy, can't-see-your-hand-in-front-of-your-face Orchard Park, N.Y. The poor Buffalo Bills, who haven't appeared in the NFL playoffs since Bill Clinton was in the Oval Office, were doing some hosting and hoping — welcoming the Indianapolis Colts, hoping to keep pace with the first-place Pats in the AFC East.

President Donald Trump approved the Keystone Pipeline despite strong objections of Native Americans. He repeatedly calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas," in a way that's not meant to be nice. When he honored Navajo Code Talkers in the Oval Office, the president stood in front of a portrait of a predecessor whom he has often praised: Andrew Jackson, who was once referred to as the "exterminator of Indians." And now Trump has slashed southern Utah's Bears Ears National Monument - essentially the first Native American-pushed monument - by more than a million acres to a fraction of its original self....

Female Democratic Senators Lead Call For Al Franken To Resign In his speech on the Senate floor where he announced his plans to resign, Franken pointed out what, to his supporters, is a bitter irony: "I am leaving, while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate, with the full...

There are few politicians better at the game of lowered expectations than Donald Trump, a man who could take a shit on the floor of the Oval Office, then nudge some poor intern in the ribs and give a halfway-convincing "Pretty good, huh?" But even Trump may have pushed his penchant for calling a D- "good enough" too far this week, when his campaign proudly tweeted out an image suggesting his deep personal joy at the fact that only a little more than half of America thinks he's doing terribly at his job.

Long before his name was bandied about as a presidential possible, Al Franken wrote his own parodical path into, and then out of, the Oval Office. It's weirdly resonant now. [Read More]

1. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced that he is resigning within weeks after multiple women accused him of touching them inappropriately. A day earlier, more than 20 fellow Democrats called on him to step down. Franken said the ongoing public reckoning over sexual harassment and assault was "long overdue," but he defended his actions, saying some of the allegations were "simply not true," while he remembered others "quite differently" than his accusers. Franken also took a swipe at Republicans, saying it was ironic "that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history... [Read More]

As special counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI circle ever closer to the Oval Office, Washington is convulsed by speculation that the president may take drastic action to cut short the investigation. Donald Trump has escalated his Twitter attacks on the FBI and the Justice Department, and there is a growing effort among Trump supporters to paint the investigation as hopelessly compromised. The December 1 guilty plea of former national security adviser Michael Flynn will have only intensified Trump's fears that the special counsel is focused on his family. Trump's lawyers continue to claim that the president has nothing... [Read More]
