Where We Are

We woke up this morning to the news that President Trump is calling his purge of supposed disloyalists within the government good for America AND demanding that Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse from any cases involving Trump. It recalls the brilliant long-running episodic Slate series: “If It Happened There” The conceit is simple: “American events are described using the tropes and tone normally employed by the American media to describe events in other co...

Trump Claims Purging Officials Who Are ‘Disloyal’ To Him Is Good For America

President Donald Trump wants America to know that his plans to remove government officials deemed insufficiently loyal to him is actually for the country’s own good. When a reporter asked Trump about the purge during a press conference in New Delhi, India, on Tuesday, the President initially downplayed the number of people he felt deserved to be kicked out. “I don’t think it’s a big problem,” Trump said. “I don’t think it’s very many people.” He brought up the “very sad situation” with the “f...

Billionaires Are An Existential Threat to Democracy

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  Dismay over inequality comes in a variety of flavors. For many, it’s simply about fairness — nobody “deserves” a billion dollars, that level of wealth is nothing more than a byproduct of an unfair economic system. But extreme inequality is not just about fairness. It’s about the sustainability of democracy. Concentrated wealth is concentrated power. We are seeing this on display with former New York City mayor Michael...

Congressman: Why I'm endorsing Bloomberg

In 2016, I was elected to Congress in a ruby red seat that no Democrat had won since 1933. As exciting as that night was, President Trump also won -- not only in my district, but in states all across America that traditionally went Democratic. Over the next two years, the Republicans controlled the House, the Senate and White House with an extremely partisan hand -- and they aggressively gutted everything from health care coverage to environmental protections.

Feminism Claims to Represent All Women. So Why Does It Ignore So Many of Them?

My first marriage ended in divorce, and afterward, I was on food stamps, I had a state-funded medical card that gave me and my son access to medical care, and I was living in public housing. Today, I have an advanced education, a wonderful family and a career I enjoy.

Hidden Figures Hero Katherine Johnson Reminded Us That Space Was Never Safe From America’s Worst Impulses

Katherine Johnson performed what might have been the most important job of her life backwards—because backwards was exactly the right way to do it. The job was figuring out how to ensure that John Glenn, the first American to orbit the Earth, would splash down in the Atlantic as close as possible to the recovery team that would be awaiting him. So Johnson—the legendary NASA “computer,” or mathematician, who was made famous by the book and movie Hidden Figures and who died at 101 on Monday—s...

Sanders Takes Some Florida Heat On Castro Comments

Fresh off of an overwhelming victory in Nevada, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) offered up fodder for critics — many in Florida — Sunday as he maintained that some good came from Fidel Castro’s leadership during the Cuban Revolution. “We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba, but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad,” Sanders said in a “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper. “You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive li...

Americans Show Fresh Signs of Panic as Coronavirus Cases Jump Again

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Monday that the number of 2019 novel Coronavirus cases in the United States rose from 34 on Friday to 53 as more passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship tested positive for the sickness. The virus quickly spread among 695 passengers aboard the Carnival cruise ship docked in Yokohama, Japan, and has since killed at least two and forced many of the rest into quarantine and isolation. The U.S. State Department eventually repatriated...

No. Obama’s Failure Didn’t Create Trump

I want to respond to a point TPM Reader MR made below. He makes a few points. But there’s one in particular I want to drill in on because it’s deeply embedded in his argument and is widespread enough to constitute something like a conventional wisdom or even a truism for many. I’d summarize the argument as this: it’s not enough to turn the clock back to 2016 or go back to some pre-Trump ‘good old days’ because ‘that’s what got us Trump’. There are different permutations of this argument. At ...
