YouTubeFormer Fox News gasbag Erick Erickson has had yet another online meltdown over Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg. Erickson, now spouting his claptrap on right-wing radio, took to his blog to skewer Buttigieg, claiming Donald Trump “has more humility” than the South Bend, IN Mayor and veteran. “President Trump has said more than once he has never felt the need to repent for anything,” Erickson writes. “Pete Buttigieg is a practicing homosexual who willfully refuses to recognize Holy Scripture identifies that...

At last night’s rally in Cincinnati, President Trump claimed that if he is reelected, he will cure AIDS and childhood cancer “very shortly.” His gullible supporters cheered after Trump told them, “The things we’re doing in our country today, there’s never been anything like it. We will be ending the AIDS epidemic shortly in America, and curing childhood cancer very shortly.” In reality, Trump has slashed funding for HIV and AIDS research and, in some cases, stopped ongoing research on a...

The federal government will resume executing prisoners, Attorney General William Barr announced today. It has been over two decades since a federal prisoner was killed in America. President Donald Trump, a longtime supporter of the death penalty, infamously called for a group of NYC teenagers to be executed for a crime they did not commit. With the Trump administration’s atrocious record on civil rights for immigrants, people of color, and LGBTQ people, the message is a chilling one. The State Department...

  “I’m in Boston and it was a benefit for the Cam Neely Foundation, and my friend Denis Leary asked me to do it … but this was right after the election. So Denis goes up and he does some Trump jokes and people laugh. And then another comic goes up and he does a couple jokes, whatever, some Trump stuff, and people laugh — another white guy. And so then I go up, and the first joke I get some...

In his continuing and seemingly endless reality show series, “I Know You Are But What Am I?,” our Fifth-Grader-In-Chief has now referred to two prominent black men as racists, men who have spent their entire adult lives in the cause of working to end division and racial strife. Congressman Elijah Cummings, chair of the powerful Oversight and Reform Committee, had a heated exchange with Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAlleenan demanding “improvement” at southern border facilities where deplorable and unsanitary conditions...

Pageant queen Kathy Zhu is sure making lemonade out of lemons. Last week, Zhu was stripped of her Miss Michigan title after a series of vile tweets she wrote in 2017 and 2018 resurfaced. In response, Zhu hit the media circuit, where she claimed “coming out as conservative is harder than coming out as gay.” Some of Zhu’s tweets included calling Adolf Hitler “very smart and a good public speaker,” attacking women who wear hijabs, and sharing bogus statistics suggesting Black...

Yesterday, Trump attacked both Baltimore and Democratic U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings, a leading black Congressional member who has criticized Trump and represents a large part of Baltimore as the rep for Maryland’s 7th congressional district. In response, Baltimore-born director John Waters, The Baltimore Sun, Cummings himself and others have denounced Trump in the strongest terms. After Cummings criticized the treatment of immigrant children by U.S. Border Patrol at the southern border,  Trump wrote the following tweets to deflect, distract and...

The governor of Texas celebrated the passage of an anti-LGBTQ bill by eating Chick-fil-A. Last month, Governor Greg Abbott (R) signed what was dubbed the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law. The bill banned government entities, including local governments, from taking “adverse actions” against businesses because of their “religious beliefs” or “moral convictions.” The bill was inspired by the city of San Antonio refusing to give Chick-fil-A a lucrative contract to operate at their local airport after the fast food chain donated...

A gay-owned private club in Colorado will be hosting a pricey-fundraiser for Mike Pence and the Republican Party. The Caribou Club in Aspen, Colorado, is owned by Billy Stolz and Richard Edwards, and it’s set to host a VIP-only reception with Pence this evening. The reception will cost $35,000 per couple to attend. The Donald Trump campaign will receive $2700 from that money, and the rest will go to the Republican National Committee. Bob Jenkins, the vice chair of Pitkin County Republicans,...

A prominent anti-LGBTQ activist said that Donald Trump’s new Commission on Unalienable Rights will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to roll back LGBTQ equality. Last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced a new Commission on Unalienable Rights that will conduct “one of the most profound reexaminations of the unalienable rights in the world” to determine which human rights are worth protecting and which are more… optional. “Words like ‘rights,'” Pompeo said, can be used for “evil.” Human rights advocates immediately criticized the...

I watched the entire Trump rally in Greenville, North Carolina with alarm for the future of the United States of America. We have a certified demagogue in the Oval Office with a Republican base that increasingly seems to support democracy only if their side wins. This crass army of angry malcontents raucously invokes America, while sledge hammering our norms and institutions that have kept us safe and prosperous. They nurse grievances, spread conspiracy theories, create lists of enemies, troll online, express...

A Trump administration lawyer who is in charge of a civil rights division had multiple run-ins with the law for his aggressive protests for Christian conservative causes and harassment of women. Matt Bowman is a Christian conservative extremist, and he also happens to be one of the top lawyers in Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights. Mother Jones reports that he was arrested multiple times from 1996 to 2002 for harassing women while protesting hospitals where he...
