One of the hallmarks of the Christian right’s overwhelming support of Donald Trump (with obvious and laudable exceptions) is the shamelessness with which they have abandoned the notion that moral character matters politically. Christian historian John Fea hammers Robert Jeffress over his hypocrisy in this regard: (more…) Read more

A Trump appointee taking part in the annual meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women has been pushing for changes in the language of the final document to come out of that meeting that support abstinence-only sex education and undermines support for women’s right to access contraception and abortion.

Kellyanne Conway, the person Trump inexplicably put in charge of fixing the problem of opioid addiction in America, showed how totally unqualified she was for that job by telling young people that they should just eat ice cream instead of buying illegal opioids on the street. (more…) Read more

As expected, Trump has fired HR McMaster and replaced him with John Bolton, the absolute worst possible person to be the National Security Adviser. Didn’t think Trump could make things worse? Oh foolish, foolish person. We are now all officially screwed. (more…) Read more

Trump’s new chief economic advisor, who isn’t an economist but plays one on TV (Trump’s only reality), also appears to be constitutionally clueless. He thinks Trump can, and should, cut taxes on the wealthy even more than he already has, and should do it by executive fiat. (more…) Read more

But under Trump, that relationship has become downright incestuous. Here’s why he’s done that. (more…) Read more

The Hill reports that most Republican leaders are terrified of Trump firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, knowing that it would be a political disaster for them.
