Trump just attacked Comey and his deputy in an unhinged Twitter rant

After claiming the FBI was in “tatters”, President Trump took to Twitter today to shred the agency’s reputation even further, attacking the one institution that had the temerity to investigate his ties to Russia and leaving the majority of Americans wondering exactly what he must be trying to hide. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/944665687292817415 You have to admire Trump’s ability to pack so many lies and insults into a single tweet. His accusations that the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal was somehow tainted insults the dedicated FBI agents who tired ceaselessly on the case by questioning their impartiality. Never mind that Republicans in Congress with no hint of impartiality couldn’t find anything…

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter was just forced to step down as CEO

This afternoon, Papa John’s announced the pizza company’s founder, largest shareholder, and chairman of the board, John Schnatter, will be stepping down from his position as CEO, after a backlash to his remarks criticizing NFL players for kneeling during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice. https://twitter.com/APBusiness/status/943961299536539648 Company stocks have plummeted 13% since Schnatter said, “The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country.” He said the protests were hurting pizza sales, but his remarks invited praise from white supremacists, creating a PR nightmare for the NFL sponsor. Schnatter, a well-known Republican donor, blamed racial polarization on the men standing up against the unpunished police murders of unarmed black people. In so doing, he sounded like…

BREAKING: Republicans Use Dirty Trick To Overturn Historic Democratic Win In Virginia

It’s an election result that is like “nothing in history,” yet it is reminding some of the “hanging chad” controversy in Florida during the 2000 Bush-Gore election recount. After losing control of Virginia’s state legislature by exactly one vote, Republicans have somehow convinced a Circuit Court to count a weird, heavily-marked ballot in their favor, making the crucial race a tie. In the race to win the state’s 94th District, Democrat Shelly Simonds beat Republican David Yancey 11,608 votes to 11,607, according to a tally from the nonpartisan Virginia Public Access Project. With the win, Democrats usurped a decades-long GOP control of Virginia’s legislature. But the final tally now stands…

John Legend Just Gave The Best Response To The Jimmy Kimmel-Trumpcare Controversy

Last night on his show, late night host Jimmy Kimmel thrust himself into the center of the healthcare debate, roasting Republicans after Trumpcare author Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) lied to his face about supporting a bill that would remove protections for children like his who are born with preexisting conditions. Kimmel has been such an effective messenger for Obamacare defenders that Republicans have begun trashing him in him in the media, arguingthat the comedian has no business discussing healthcare. Music icon John Legend knows better (tweets below). Legend saw this tweet from from Slate Chief Political Correspondent Jamelle Bouie, reminding the twitterverse how absurd it is for supporters of a reality personality president to…

White House Leaks Just Revealed The Disturbing Truth About The Senate’s Trumpcare Bill

Even as President Trump publicly taunts those who stand in opposition to the latest attempt to repeal Obamacare and its live-saving protections, within the confines of the Oval Office, White House insiders confirm that the president and his aides are unsure about the bill itself. Just this morning, Trump called out Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and “whoever votes against Hcare Bill,” on Twitter in an ill-conceived attempt to pressure the Republicans to support the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal, which the Senate will take up next week. The move backfired immediately as Paul immediately fired off a series of tweets doubling down on his opposition. While Paul’s reaction is an embarrassment for Trump, he apparently is not…
