Trump Bashes Media: NYT Needs To ‘Get Down On Their Knees,’ ‘Beg For Forgiveness’

In a series of unhinged tweets on Tuesday morning, President Trump took his usual spout-off against the media in an unusual direction. Trump claimed the New York Times had apologized to him after the 2016 election and that if they wanted his forgiveness again, they’d have to make a real gesture out of the apology: “Get down on their knees and beg for forgiveness.” I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election. But this one will have to...

A Sanders candidacy would make 2020 a referendum on the future, not a referendum on Trump

One thing that immediately struck me in Lauren Gambino's excellent analysis of the Democratic nomination campaigns in The Guardian: a quote from GOP never-Trump political consultant Rick Wilson, who counseled Democrats not to select Bernie Sanders and make the election about actual policies, "Democrats have two choices: make this a referendum on Donald Trump or lose. That’s it. There are no other options." I think every Democrat and Democratic voter loves it when lifelong Republican grande...

Zuck turned American classrooms into nonconsensual laboratories for his pet educational theories, and now they're rebelling

Summit Learning is a nonprofit, high-tech "customized learning" group funded by Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan's family charity; under the program, students are equipped with high-surveillance Chromebooks and work on their own "at their own pace" and call on teachers to act as "mentors" when they get stuck. It's a high-tech version of student-led education, where a high teacher-to-pupil ratio allows students to pursue self-directed education based on their own proclivities and interests...

US STOCKS-Wall Street dips ahead of earnings deluge

U.S. stocks pulled back slightly on Monday as investors awaited a barrage of major earnings reports this week, the busiest this earnings season, while a jump in energy stocks kept losses in check. Boeing Co was down 1.1% after the New York Times reported the company's factory in South Carolina, which makes the 787 Dreamliner, has been plagued by "shoddy production and weak oversight." Another report on Sunday said the planemaker rejected the allegations.

‘So-Called Notes’ From WH Aides Proved Frequent Sources For Mueller Report

President Donald Trump recognized the damage that his aides’ notes had done him in the aftermath of the redacted Mueller report’s release, warning his massive Twitter following to “watch out for people that take so-called ‘notes.’” As the New York Times reported, the frequency with which Trump White House staffers took notes is significant and starkly different than the practices of their predecessors. White House employees of yore have been cautious with note-taking, since the Presidential R...

Giuliani, Conway Spend Sunday Trying To Discredit McGahn’s Mueller Testimony

Two key surrogates for President Donald Trump on Sunday sought to discredit a Republican lawyer who served in the White House until six months ago: Don McGahn, the former White House counsel who, per a New York Times tally, was cited more than anyone else in special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted final report. Specifically, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and White House adviser Kellyanne Conway sought to muddy the waters regarding reports addressed by Mueller’s team that Trump told McGahn to h...

McGahn Hits Back At Giuliani: Events I Told Mueller About Were ‘Accurately Described’

Former White House Counsel Don McGahn on Friday pushed back against Rudy Giuliani’s dismissal of his credibility after the release of Robert Mueller’s report, which included damaging accounts from McGahn. Giuliani, one of President Donald Trump’s lawyers, told the New York Times that McGahn’s account of Trump trying to quash the Mueller probe in the report “can’t be taken at face value.” “It could be the product of an inaccurate recollection or could be the product of something else,” Giulian...

Bernie versus the Democratic Party

Hollywood is filled with remakes and reboots. Washington is about to get one of its own. The re-launched property: the 2016 campaign.You know the plot. An outsider with grassroots support leads a crusade against the party establishment and the legitimating institutions that bestow credibility upon a candidate. He's old, white, been around for a while, says some things that are outside the mainstream, and has a fickle relationship to his party. But he possesses a strange charisma, dominates t...

Which Trump Obstruction Acts Did Mueller Find To Be Most Obstruction-y?

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his obstruction inquiry into President Trump is like the TV show “Friends”: everybody’s got a favorite episode.

Though Mueller made clear from...

'Confederate' militia detains migrants at gunpoint — with Border Patrol's tacit OK, they claim

“A right-wing militia group operating in southern New Mexico has begun stopping groups of migrant families and detaining them at gunpoint before handing them over to Border Patrol agents, raising tension over the tactics of armed vigilantes along the border between the United States and Mexico,” writes Simon Romero at the New York Times. They post videos to Youtube of themselves abusing migrants. Here is one such video. We knew the armed volunteer mobs would do this. We knew Trump's in...
