A hilarious moment ensued during impeachment proceedings on Tuesday when Trump’s personal lawyer (and Pat Robertson lapdog) Jay Sekulow went on an angry, indignant rant in response to something said by Rep. Val Demings, a House impeachment manager. He heard her say “lawyer lawsuits” and for some reason that really set him off. (more…) Read more

Remember that famous memo that William Barr wrote for the DOJ when he was still a private lawyer giving them advice on how to handle the Mueller investigation?

Baghdad Kellyanne Conway took part in a press gathering at the White House on Martin Luther King day and declared that he would be opposed to Trump being impeached because he wanted national unity, not division.

In the least surprising news of the day, Trump’s newly announced “phase one” China trade deal, which he has pitched as a victory for American workers, actually sells them out and benefits primarily big business. This was made obvious by those who attended the public signing ceremony. Labor groups? Nope. Wall Street tycoons. (more…) Read more

As First Lady, Michelle Obama made promoting good nutrition for children her primary priority. To that end she pushed and got passed new rules requiring more fruits and vegetables and less junk food in school lunches.
