Hank Kunneman, a crackpot preacher from Nebraska, says that God’s compassion is going to pour out upon us in the wake of the massacre at the Tree of Life temple in Pittsburgh and he’s going to release cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease that have been withheld from us due to some mysterious “bureaucracy.” (more…) Read more

One of the things about Trump is that sometimes he’s pretending to believe something for political purposes and sometimes he really believes it. Aaron Blake looks at Trump’s pre-election predictions about a “red wave” and his furious reaction when it didn’t happen and asks which is the case here. I’ll offer my own analysis of that question.

Oh boy, looks like Kellyanne Conway’s husband is taking his disgust at the actions of her boss to the next level. He has now formed a group with other conservative lawyers, called Checks and Balances, to call attention to the incredible number of ways Trump has undermined the rule of law and our constitutional norms.
