Asked about Trump’s lie that he knows nothing about Wikileaks, Vice President Mike Pence gave a shamelessly dishonest answer. He said that when Trump said he loved Wikileaks, that wasn’t an endorsement of the site. That is both laughably stupid and completely irrelevant. Trump said he didn’t know anything about the site, after citing is and lavishing praise on it more than 100 times during the 2016 campaign. (more…) Read more

After the arrest of Julian Assange on Thursday morning, Trump was asked his thoughts on it. His thought, predictably, was a lie. He said he didn’t know anything about Wikileaks.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested by London police Thursday morning, serving an extradition warrant from the United States.

Tucker Carlson, who at the very least gives tacit support to white supremacy, made a couple of absolutely inane and hypocritical arguments on his show, conflating criticism of white supremacists with criticism of white people, arguing that white supremacists are virtually non-existent and making a claim about demagoguery that is a perfect description of what he and his hero Trump do everyday.

Politico reports that Trump is going to fire Francis Cissna, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and wants to replace him with Julie Kirchner, who formerly ran a white supremacist, anti-immigrant group, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Politico points out that FAIR is listed as a hate group by the SPLC, but doesn’t explain why they get that designation. An SPLC report on FAIR founder John Tanton fills in the gaps.

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has rejected a request from the House Ways and Means Committee to see six years of Trump’s tax returns as part of multiple investigations into several types of financial fraud. This will set up a legal battle between the legislative and executive branches of government. (more…) Read more

Whenever Trump is criticized for his police of taking children away from their parents when the families reach the American border, he tries to shift the blame to Obama. He get this self-righteous going and talks about how unfair it is that he takes the blame when Obama started it and he ended it. Here’s the latest example: (more…) Read more
