Donald Trump stands largely silent, alone after second impeachment

By JONATHAN LEMIRE, JILL COLVIN and ZEKE MILLER | Associated Press WASHINGTON — His place in the history books rewritten, President Donald Trump endured his second impeachment largely alone and silent. For more than four years, Trump has dominated the national discourse like no one before him. Yet when his legacy was set in stone on Wednesday, he was stunningly left on the sidelines. Trump now stands with no equal, the only president to be charged twice with a high crime or misdemeanor, a new co...

Without Twitter, Trump remains largely invisible

By Kaitlan Collins and Kevin Liptak | CNN On the day he will be impeached for a history-making second time, President Donald Trump lacks a comprehensive legal strategy, has nothing on his public schedule and is without his preferred social media methods of responding — in part because his son-in-law put a stop to efforts establishing his presence on fringe platforms after he was banned from Twitter. It amounts to near-invisibility for the President at the most perilous moment of his presidency, ...

Its Time To Cast Your Vote For The Duke Of Dukes

Alas, Michele Bachmann’s unhinged diatribes about  terrorist Muslims infiltrating the U.S. government could not top Dinesh D’Souza’s batshit. Mark Sanford’s romantic adventures were deemed by readers to be no match for Dick Cheney shooting his buddy in the face — and then forcing said buddy to apologize for Cheney having shot him in the face. And so, the people have spoken: Dinesh and Dick advance to the Round of 16. The play-ins are over and we now have our tournament is set. The day has ar...

A Few More Hill GOPers Push Trump To Accept Reality As More Legal Battles Fall Flat

A handful of Republicans have joined a small contingent of conservative lawmakers over the weekend in accepting the reality that President Trump’s presidency is ending in January. The sitting president still refuses to concede to President-elect Joe Biden and his flailing attempts to legally challenge the election results have not picked up steam. On Saturday night, the Trump campaign was dealt another blow in its effort to delegitimize the election process when a federal judge rebuked its cha...

Election Days I Have Known

My birthday is November 3, 1979. This means that Election Day 2020 in the United States was also my 41st birthday. It was a very strange birthday. But I believe that anyone born in the first week of November who lives and/or votes in this country often finds themselves celebrating strange birthdays. Their memories and experiences of those days are different, more vivid, and more hopelessly entwine the political, civic, and personal. I was very nearly born on November 2. That was my mother’s 28t...

Tom Cotton Predicts There Will Be A Peaceful Transfer Of Power … In 2025

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Sunday appeared undisturbed by President Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the November presidential election to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, because he’s confident that Trump will win re-election. During a press conference at the White House on Wednesday, Trump offered a noncommittal reply when asked whether he can guarantee a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the November presidential election. “Well, we’re goin...

MAGA Ambush of Liz Cheney Backfires

For the first time ever, Congress’ most MAGA contingent on Tuesday decided to test the rule that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is the only high-profile Republican who can criticize President Trump and get away with it. By the end of the day, their efforts had made abundantly clear that Cheney can, in fact, still get away with it—at least for now—with her reputation largely unscathed. At a closed-door meeting of House Republicans—their first fully in-person meeting since early March—several lawmakers wh...

Why the U.S. has had more vice presidents than presidents

Initially, the vice presidency was a consolation prize for the runner-up in the Electoral College.For a total of almost 38 years – about one-sixth of U.S. history – the office of vice president has been vacant.As this map shows, Richard Nixon remains the only vice president to date born west of the Rockies.

Liz Cheney of Wyoming, said the president should drop the matter and focus on leading the co...

While President Donald Trump’s allies largely stood silent as the president continues to push baseless murder conspiracies against Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough, several Republican lawmakers have sounded off and called out the president for peddling the lies.Over the past several weeks, the president has repeatedly taken to his Twitter account to suggest that Scarborough murdered an aide in 2001 when he was a GOP congressman. Authorities found the staffer, Lori Klausutis, to have accidentally...

Trump Chatted With Taliban Leaders on Secret U.S. Kill-or-Capture List

President Donald Trump’s phone call with Taliban leaders last week was profound and unprecedented in the long timeline that makes up America’s longest war. For some in American national security and diplomatic circles, it was a climax in a frustrating, years-long peace process. For others, it was also a worrisome event—not because of what Trump said but because of who, exactly, he spoke with. Some of the Taliban leaders on the other end of the line were also on secret U.S. kill-or-capture lists....

Fragility of U.S.-Taliban Deal Underscored as Attacks Increase in Afghanistan

(WASHINGTON) — Less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump said he had a “very good talk” with a top Taliban leader and insisted the group wants to cease violence, a U.S. military drone on Wednesday targeted the militant group — retaliation for an uptick in Taliban attacks against Afghan forces. The mixed signals underscored the fragility of the U.S.-Taliban deal signed last weekend that aims at ending America’s longest war. U.S. officials said Wednesday’s airstrike was intended as a me...
