    The Washington Post‘s editorial board issued an endorsement of Joe Biden’s White House bid on Monday, arguing the former vice president was the right person to replace the “worst president of modern time.” “In order to expel the worst president of modern times, many voters might be willing to vote for almost anybody,” the editorial board wrote. “Fortunately, to oust President [Donald] Trump in 2020, voters do not have to lower their standards.
  • WashPost Compares Pro-Trump Teenagers to ‘Russian Trolls,’ Gets Them Banned from Social Media

    Conservative digital activists were smeared as behaving like “Russian trolls” by a recent article in the Washington Post. The writer also made sure to reach out to both Twitter and Facebook to get the teenage activists banned. The article goes to great lengths — even interviewing PhDs — to compare the teenagers to “bots,” even though the article presents no evidence that any accounts were not operated by humans, and to “Russian trolls,” even though the article acknowledges that the people in charge of the accounts were Americans. The article also casts normal behavior of political activists, like reading from...

    We wanted to know: What’s the worst thing that could happen to our country during the presidential election? President Trump has broken countless norms and ignored countless laws during his time in office, and while my colleagues and I at the Transition Integrity Project didn’t want to lie awake at night contemplating the ways the American experiment could fail, we realized that identifying the most serious risks to our democracy might be the best way to avert a November disaster. So we built a series of war games, sought out some of the most accomplished Republicans, Democrats, civil servants, media...
  • WaPo’s Rubin: Trump’s GOP Is the Party of ‘White Vigilantism of White Supremacy’

    Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin said the Republican Party under President Donald Trump’s leadership had become the party “of white vigilanteism of white supremacy,” on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Reidout.” Rubin said, “Today Joe Biden walked out there confidently, and he slammed Donald Trump for being the cause of mayhem, the cause of violence, the cause of unnecessary deaths from COVID. He did exactly what he’s supposed to do, which is to hold Trump accountable and say, you’re the president, this isn’t about a Biden America, this is Trump America right now. What’s more, he dared Trump to...

    In her latest op-ed, published Monday, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin questioned the necessity of the Republican Party. In the column -- headlined "Do we even need the Republican Party?" -- Rubin made the case that President Trump has sealed the GOP's fate after "years of racism and xenophobia" as a minority dependent on "White grievance and cultural resentment." "The unpleasant truth for those expected to say 'there are fine people' in both parties is that, aside from a few stray governors and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), there really are not fine people running the Republican Party," she wrote. "They...

    Fox News host Mark Levin blasted the Washington Post’s coverage of his interview with Attorney General William Barr as a “shocking lie” in a series of scathing tweets on Monday. Levin sat down with Barr on Sunday’s edition of “Life, Liberty & Levin” in a news-making interview in which the country's top law enforcement officer discussed the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through U.S. cities. He told Levin that the organization – which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group – is comprised of "Bolsheviks" with a focus on "some form of socialism, communism." "They...
  • Washington Post’s ‘Fact Checker,’ Not Pence, Deserves the 4 Lying ‘Pinocchios’

    CNSNews ^ | August 10, 2020 | Hans von Spakovsky
    Glenn Kessler, the so-called “fact checker” at The Washington Post , this week called out Vice President Mike Pence’s answer to an interview question about election fraud. But it’s Kessler, not Pence, who deserves four “Pinocchios” for many of the misleading claims he makes about it in his column. Pence said: “Make no mistake about it. The reality of voter fraud is undeniable. We’ve seen case after case around the country where there have been prosecutions.” Kessler concentrates on a case in Indiana that the vice president—a former governor of that state—mentioned in passing, and the dispute is over the...

    Conservative commentator Mark Levin slammed the Washington Post’s publisher for serving as the outlet’s CEO while also working on the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute's board of trustees. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute requested this weekend that the Republican National Committee and President Trump’s reelection campaign stop fundraising off of Reagan’s likeness, following an email saying Trump supporters would receive a commemorative Reagan coin if they donated at least $45 to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee.

    President Trump decided to celebrate our nation’s birthday and in doing so, set off a meltdown not seen in quite a while from the media. Who am I kidding? It was a day that ends in “y” with these clowns. If Trump said the sky was blue, they would dole out endless articles attacking him. Trump decided to kick off the Fourth of July weekend by delivering a speech and fireworks show at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. That really set off the Left. And it didn’t stop there. This whole weekend is going to be grade-A Trump derangement entertainment...

    On Friday night, a group of Black Lives Matter activists began shouting a political script in a Target store in Washington, D.C. The verbal assault was led by a male with a bullhorn, who read the script in portions which were were then shouted back by the rest of the group. They yelled, “All black people, living around this neighborhood, because you prioritize money over people, until you stop calling the police, we will continue to shut your business down.”

I read it first with bemusement at the moral panic, and then finally, with horror over what we are doing to ourselves.... Honestly, what kind of white idiot shows up in blackface these days? Granted, this was 2018, but blackface was extremely taboo then. That’s what Schafer’s joke was about: how Megyn Kelly got herself in a world of trouble by suggesting that blackface was not that big a deal....

    Every year, Tom Toles’s Halloween party draws an eclectic mix — journalists and political types from Washington’s power elite, but also artists and musicians, everyone from retirees to college kids, jammed into small rooms and sprawled across the backyard, dancing and gossiping, checking out the crowd to see who has the most inventive and outrageous costumes. At the 2018 party at the home of The Washington Post’s editorial cartoonist, in addition to several Ruth Bader Ginsburgs, someone dressed as the “Mueller Witch Hunt” and Post columnist Dana Milbank came as just-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, complete with a...

    On Friday, Joe Biden ended an interview with “The Breakfast Club” by saying “you got more questions, but I’ll tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” The Biden campaign attempted to spin the comment (with help from the media of course) before Joe ended up apologizing. Washington Post opinion writer Paul Waldman writes that Biden’s comment “made his allies cringe and gave his opponents the opportunity for fake outrage.” But fortunately, nobody is expected to have to think for themselves when it comes to this issue: Some thoughts...

    Pandemonium ensues as she walks to the far left of the stage, like a runway supermodel, stops on a dime, poses, tilts her head slightly and smiles. Camera flashes explode. She next pivots and walks slowly to the center of the stage, freezes there and repeats the pose. Again, the flashes explode. Abrams is summoning her inner actress, and she is both enjoying the moment and getting through it to get to the conversation.

    The Washington Post editorial board published an article on Wednesday calling for former Vice President Joe Biden to publicly address a sexual assault allegation made against him by Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer. Driving the news: Business Insider this week published accounts from two on-the-record sources corroborating parts of allegations by Reade, who alleges Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993. Biden's campaign has told Axios that the alleged assault "absolutely did not happen." Top Democrats like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Stacey Abrams have stood behind Biden, while others have remained silent. Biden himself has not publicly spoken about the...
