    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace asked on Tuesday’s broadcast of her network’s coverage of the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump how long it would be before Republicans ask, “How bad would a Pence president be?” Wallace said, “How long until some sort of outlier on talk radio pop up with ‘you know look folks how bad would a Pence president be?’ How long until some right-wing radio host says ‘you know what?'”

    Actor Michael Douglas gave an over the top endorsement of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) for president on Tuesday, calling him “one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections.” “I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” the Ant-Man actor told PEOPLE, noting that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a candidate since John F. Kennedy.

    Pop superstar turned left-wing activist Taylor Swift has revealed that her upcoming song “Only the Young” was written in response to her disappointment in the 2018 midterm elections that saw Republicans take key seats in her home state of Tennessee and released to encourage young voters to get engaged in left-wing causes. “Only the Young” is set to be released in conjunction with the Netflix documentary Miss Americana, on Jan. 31. The documentary provides a look into Swift’s music career, trailing the singer over the course of a few years.

    Here’s a musical take on McConnell’s great response last week to Nancy’s lame attempt at stagecraft.

    Ultimate Fighting Championship legend Conor McGregor on Monday saluted another battler who has overcome the odds. “Phenomenal President,” McGregor tweeted in praise of President Donald Trump. His tweet then inserted the image of a goat, shorthand for “Greatest of All Time.” “Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him. No easy [feat]. Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America,” McGregor said.
  • Acosta Intercepts Ivanka, Watch Him Get Blown Off and Left in the Dust

    Well-known CNN personality Jim Acosta tried to intercept Ivanka Trump this week, but was expertly boxed out as her security detail left the reporter in the dust. The network’s chief White House correspondent confronted the first daughter Tuesday in Davos, Switzerland. Ivanka Trump and her father, President Donald Trump, were in the European nation for the World Economic Forum. But instead of asking about the state of the world’s finances, it seems Acosta had a different agenda. The CNN reporter hounded the first daughter and senior White House adviser as she descended a set of stairs, asking her about her...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden ramped up attacks on each other Tuesday night as part of an escalating battle over their records on Social Security. Sanders has hammered his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, arguing that he backed proposed cuts to Social Security during his years as a senator. Biden said he was committed to not only maintaining but also strengthening the program and released an attack ad Tuesday dinging the Vermont Independent as “flat-out wrong.” “Democrats, we can’t launch dishonest attacks against fellow Democrats. We have to beat Donald Trump,” says a narrator...

    Border guards in Russia’s north west last week arrested a man who had set up a bogus border outpost with Finland and taken thousands of euros from migrants for what they thought was a journey through the woods to the European Union. The man, who was only identified as a citizen of one of the former Soviet Union republics, put up border posts in the forest outside St Petersburg and charged four men from South Asia more than 10,000 euros (£8,400) for his services for smuggling them into neighbouring Finland, Russia’s Border Guard Service said on Wednesday.
  • Students Assigned to Pack Bags and Pretend They Are Refugees in Trump’s America

    A middle school teacher in Pennsylvania provoked outrage and charges of indoctrination after she assigned her students to time themselves for ten minutes as they packed a bag in imitation of refugees forced to leave America by President Donald Trump. “President Trump is trying to take control of the United States!” read the deliberately inflammatory assignment, portraying America’s legitimate president as a dictator enacting a coup. “There are fights in the streets! You have to pretend that you are a refugee being forced to leave your home, never to return.” The assignment then instructs students to spend only ten minutes...

    [SATIRE] U.S.—Somber members of the press offered their thoughts and prayers that someone would start some violence at the gun rights rally in Virginia today. Reporters expressed their grief and condolences as the violence they hyped has so far failed to materialize. "Nobody has so much as fired a shot. This is an unbelievable tragedy," said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter, clearly caught up in the anguish of the moment. "It's tragic that we live in a country where reporters who are just minding their own business trying to push a narrative can have everything ripped away from them in an...
  • It's going to be painful for the Trump-deranged when Trump is re-elected

    On the same day the senators were sworn in for the impeachment trial, I was in my favorite coffee shop in the progressive Chicago neighborhood where I live (the fifth most liberal ZIP code in the country). Many suffer from especially bad cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome here, as I've recounted in these pages over the past few years. At the table next to me, a young couple was talking loudly about impeachment. The man expressed excitement that the trial was finally underway, because "he will soon be gone." The woman was trying to explain to him that, contrary to...
  • 'People will sit at home': Sanders supporters threaten to boycott election if Democrats pick Biden

    Bernie Sanders supporters are warning that a lack of enthusiasm for Joe Biden could bring about the same result that nominating another establishment Democrat did four years ago: electing Donald Trump. Sanders backers fret the socialist Vermont senator, 78, is being consistently ignored and underestimated by Beltway insiders and a Washington-based press corps — the same bunch, in their view, who failed to predict Trump's 2016 White House win and were sure Hillary Clinton, who beat Sanders for the Democratic nomination, would easily prevail. They're particularly steamed Sanders, a socialist who has been in Congress since 1991, isn't getting his...

    President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team will include Ken Starr, whose investigation led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, whose clients have included notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and O.J. Simpson. The Trump team choices came to light as the president’s impeachment trial is set to begin in earnest next Tuesday in the Senate, where he is accused of abusing power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden last summer while withholding military aid to that nation. In addition to Starr and Dershowitz, the lawyer Robert Ray is expected to be...

    Several thousand gun owners turned out at the temporary General Assembly Building on Monday, January 13! The hearing room was divided into two areas - the larger area for gun-rights supporters and the other was a smaller area for gun-control supporters. Gun owners filled up their side of the room quickly, while the gun controllers side was still pretty empty. To make it looked like they had more people and not look so pitiful, a search for gun-controllers in the waiting line outside the meeting room doors was conducted. Countless gun owners in the line were skipped over in the...

    Harry and Meghan may settle in the US eventually — but not while President Donald Trump is in charge. Friends have told the Daily Mail that while the couple plan to live in Canada at first — although probably not on Vancouver Island — their ultimate aim is to have a home and business in Los Angeles. Meghan grew up in the city and her mother, Doria Ragland, still lives there. Miss Ragland, 63, was seen walking her two dogs near her home last week after the royal couple's bombshell news. However, staunch Democrat Meghan, who has openly been critical...

  • Dem senators in 2020 race face lengthy down time for impeachment

    01/12/2020 10:07:19 AM PST · by rktman · 30 replies ^ | 1/11/2020 | staff
    Senate Democrats running for their party's nomination for president are facing a lengthy down time from their campaigns. Others, including Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, will be on the trail shaking hands every day. It's because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, after three weeks of trying to extract favorable terms, said she will take steps next week to send impeachment articles to the Senate. The trial is expected to result in an acquittal for the president since the GOP holds the majority and impeachment requires a supermajority vote of two-thirds.
