Beto O’Rourke Isn’t Afraid to Call Trump Racist

All elected officials need to speak out about Trump’s racist and white supremacist beliefs.

And we wish Beto had run again for senate instead of president. He’s badly needed there.

Trump Declared Himself a Proud Nationalist Months Ago

As Trump explained in this October 2018 rally for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), we should take the term “nationalist” literally and use it — a lot. “Use it. Use it,” he told his cheering crowd. The Republican reaction? They hummed loudly, looked into the middle distance and changed the subject.

But now Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a long-regarded racist, is saying almost the same thing Trump said, but leaving in the word, “white” before “nationalist.” Even as he follows the Trump, “Take this literally” line (after all, like Trump, King is white and he is a nationalist), Republicans are reacting like they touched a hot stove.

Well kinda. Cruz said King’s statement was “stupid,” but he didn’t say King is, or that he is racist. Still, why didn’t Ted and all the others call it out when Trump said nearly the same thing? Clearly, it’s those bright yellow stripes down their backs when it comes to criticizing Trump.

The Tax Cut Sugar High Has Officially Worn Off

Did we really think the man who couldn’t sell steaks, vodka, or real estate, the man whose business school and nonprofit organization were court-ordered to shut down, the man who bankrupted casinos and apartment houses…did we really think that guy could make decisions that would benefit the world’s largest economy? If we did, we were wrong.

It’s Time for Us to Make America Great Again

If you’ve ever wondered what living in pre-war Germany was like, and how people could turn a blind eye on injustices they must have known their government was committing, wonder no longer.

The sadness and frustration you’ll feel from reading the Detroit Free Press report of the pending deportation (and in pragmatic terms, death sentence) of a deaf and mentally disabled man for no good reason whatsoever will make you ashamed of what Trump has turned us into. Our country has lost its way.

America wasn’t perfect before Trump came along but it was…pretty great. It’s time make America great again.

Resist, resist, resist. And vote for every Democrat on the ballot this November.

Trump is a Petty, Vindictive Asshole and the White House Flag Proves It

In this shot, the flag flies at the top of the pole at the White House, while all the flags at the Washington Monument are at half staff for Sen. John McCain. No opportunity to do the right thing is too big for Trump to waste it.

GOP Getting Progressively Weirder

“If I were coming of age today and my example for conservatism was based on Donald Trump, Laura Ingraham, and Sean Hannity, would I sign up? I can’t imagine that I would join that cause. Should this trend continue, it’s going to be increasingly hard for Republicans to attract thoughtful, compassionate, and even sane supporters. If that happens, not only will the GOP become progressively whiter, older, more rural, and more male, it will also become…weirder.”

If You Know Your Own Family’s Immigration Story, You Should Watch This

If you find yourself growing immune to the trauma we are inflicting on our southern border, watch this video for a little reminder of how shameful our current president’s policies are.

Parents of Korean War Veterans Have Notably Longer Life Spans

101 to 110

Average age of the parents of Korean War veterans, who Trump claimed repeatedly came up to him on the 2016 campaign trail, begging him to bring home their sons’ remains. According to Esquire’s Jack Holmes, “…this is a quintessential Trumpian lie: totally shameless, easily verifiable as false, and rooted in the notion that “many people”—who are never defined further, and who you’ll never be able to find—are telling the president something that he just happens to agree with himself. How many times in this troubled period in our nation’s history have we heard how ‘many people are saying’ something about Donald Trump?”
