    Former Bush strategist and failed Texas Democrat lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Matthew Dowd said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that if Jesus Christ were alive today, he would be called a groomer, woke and socialist by Republicans. The discussion was about first-term Michigan State Sen. Mallory McMorrow’s (D) speech on the floor of the state Senate after being accused of being a “groomer” for supporting LGBTQ rights.

    Former Bush strategist Matthew Dowd said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump was facilitating ongoing “domestic terrorism.” Dowd said, “I mean, obviously, January 6 is a seminal moment in our country’s history, but it’s really a moment combined with a lot of other moments. This, in fact, is domestic terrorism, which has completely surfaced in our country, and it has all of the elements of domestic terrorism with the added element, it has cells around the country, it has actions, it has intent, it has weapons, it has radicalization. It has communication channels that do it, which...

    Matthew Dowd, the chief strategist of former President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign, dropped his bid for Texas lieutenant governor on Tuesday, pointing to an emerging field of diverse candidates vying for the number two position in the Lone Star State. In a statement announcing his decision to end his candidacy, Dowd, who was running as a Democrat, cited an opinion piece he wrote for ABC News in 2018 titled “Us white male Christians need to step back and give others room to lead.” In the article, Dowd called for more diversity in electoral politics, writing “white male Christians...

    Matthew Dowd, the former chief strategist of President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection bid, is running as a Democrat for Texas lieutenant governor, kicking off a difficult fight to oust incumbent Dan Patrick. In a video announcing his campaign, Dowd railed against Patrick as a representative of only a small minority of Texans. He blamed Patrick for hampering local governments’ ability to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and failing to take charge after the state’s electric grid crashed earlier this year. “The GOP politicians have failed us, especially the cruel and craven lieutenant governor,” Dowd said.

    Former George W. Bush campaign strategist Matthew Dowd said Tuesday on CNN’s “OutFront” that President Joe Biden has “done an extremely good job” on Afghanistan. Dowd said, “Joe Biden’s drift down of his approval ratings didn’t start with Afghanistan. It started with the COVID and the spread of the virus. I think Americans, not disapproval of him but disapproval of the situation, and I think that has to get fixed for his approval numbers to fundamentally go back up to where they were. It’s not a large drift. It’s a small drift of approval numbers.”

    The perceived Biden administration’s lackluster handling of the collapse of the U.S.-aligned Afghanistan regime is expected by many to have political implications for President Joe Biden and Democrats. However, don’t expect any of them to be long-lasting implications, according to former George W. Bush campaign strategist Matthew Dowd. During an appearance on CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight,” Dowd predicted little impact politically for Democrats.

    Jay Gatsby gave big, lavish, new-money parties at his sprawling mansion on the water because he wanted to seem cool. He wanted Daisy to notice him. Barack Obama gave a big, lavish, new-money party at his sprawling mansion on the water because he wanted to seem cool. Being cool is important to him. One difference is that Gatsby opened his house to the uninvited. Obama closed his house to many of the invited after getting flak for hosting “a celebrity mosh pit,” as Stephen Colbert called it, while officials were telling people to mask back up. It’s hard to stop...

    WASHINGTON — After I interviewed Nancy Pelosi a few weeks ago, The HuffPost huffed that we were Dreaded Elites because we were eating chocolates and — horror of horrors — the speaker had on some good pumps. Then this week, lefty Twitter erected a digital guillotine because I had a book party for my friend Carl Hulse, The Times’s authority on Capitol Hill for decades, attended by family, journalists, Hill denizens and a smattering of lawmakers, including Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Susan Collins. I, the daughter of a D.C. cop, and Carl, the son of an Illinois plumber, were hilariously...

Rahm Emanuel told me Chakrabarti is “a snot-nosed punk” who has no idea about the battle scars Pelosi bears from the liberal fights she has led. “What votes did you get?” Emanuel said, rhetorically challenging A.O.C.’s chief of staff. “You should only be so lucky to learn from somebody like Nancy who has shown incredible courage and who has twice...

    The transcript of a voicemail recording President Trump's legal representation left for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn's lawyer on Nov. 22, 2017 was released on Friday. It shows former Trump lawyer John Dowd asking for a "heads up" if Flynn knew information that "implicates" Trump after Flynn dropped from a joint defense agreement with the president and began cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. "Hey, Rob, uhm, this is John again. Uh, maybe, I-I-I-'m-I'm sympathetic; I understand your situation, but let me see if I can't...state it in...starker terms," the message said....

    Shortened title. Full title: Dowd Nails It – Former Trump Attorney Outlines Insufferable Behavior of Mueller and Rosenstein in Perpetrating Political Russia Hoax ABC conducted an extremely interesting interview with former Trump Attorney John Dowd that the media outlet will likely keep far away from their mainstream broadcast and print reporting. The interview is exceptionally interesting because Dowd outlines how incredibly false all prior reporting has been surrounding the Mueller investigation and the background of the contacts and discussions between Trump’s legal team, Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein. Additionally, within the interview itself, when you stand back and absorb the...

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd said George H.W. Bush called Donald Trump a curse word and threw his shoe at the television when Trump was on. Dowd said, “I think, you know, that Donald Trump would be incomprehensible to him literally. And even that was 2011, so in our wildest imagination we couldn’t imagine that Trump would be the nominee and that he would, you know, eviscerate H.W.’s dream of Jeb in the White House with two words, ‘low energy.’ All of that was unimaginable.”
