    A Black woman who repeatedly nodded in agreement with President Trump during his NBC town hall meeting in Miami Thursday evening enraged the left on social media Thursday night. The woman, revealed to be immigration attorney and pro-Trump activist Mayra Joli, captured America’s attention after she was seen enthusiastically agreeing with the president while seated behind him during the town hall with moderator Savannah Guthrie, sparking the viral hashtag #NoddingWoman. Critics demanded to know Ms. Joli’s identity and accused her of being paid by the Trump campaign. “Journalists, if you don’t find out who that woman is nodding behind Trump...

    If none is so zealous as the convert, none is so hateful as the defector. Appearing on MSNBC's AM Joy today, Never Trumper Tom Nichols today epitomized that hatred of his former party, the GOP. Guest-host Jonathan Capehart had assembled a panel of Never Trumpers to discuss the future of the party. Here's how Nichols, now a member of the Trump-hating Lincoln Project, expressed this violent death wish for the GOP: We [Never Trumpers] all have a sentimental attachment to the Republican party. We all loved Old Yeller. But at some point you have to take Old Yeller behind the...
  • Donald Trump, the Most Unmanly President (never-Trumper teams up with Atlantic to deliver laugh of the week)

    So many mysteries surround Donald Trump: the contents of his tax returns, the apparent miracle of his graduation from college. Some of them are merely curiosities; others are of national importance, such as whether he understood the nuclear-weapons briefing given to every president. I prefer not to dwell on this question. But since his first day as a presidential candidate, I have been baffled by one mystery in particular: Why do working-class white men—the most reliable component of Donald Trump’s base—support someone who is, by their own standards, the least masculine man ever to hold the modern presidency? The question...

  • Video: Bill Maher ‘Really’ Wants a Recession Because ‘We Can’t Survive Another Trump Term’

    HBO talk show host Bill Maher has once again expressed his desire to see the United States fall into an economic recession in the coming year, arguing it would reduce the chances of President Donald Trump winning the 2020 presidential election. “I’m not wishing for a recession, but if the farmers want to keep touching the hot stove,” said commentator Tom Nichols on the issue of Trump’s trade policies, before Maher interjected. Well, you should be,” said Bill Maher. “Because that will definitely get him unelected.” “But Bill, you don’t really want a recession,” argued Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s former White...
  • The Conservative Case For Normalizing Relations With Cuba

    Okay, everyone. Calm down. There are a lot of reasons to be worried about the president’s decision to normalize relations with Cuba. Not least among them is that this is the least-adept foreign policy team in post-Cold War history (yes, I include the Carter and Bush 43 White Houses in that evaluation), and after six years of being taken to the cleaners by bad regimes, it feels like it’s happening again. It also looks too much like a quid pro quo for the release of an imprisoned American. And it’s being rationalized by the president himself in terms that show...
