Megyn Kelly Tells Former Skinhead: Racist 'Dog Whistles' Weren't Really Racist When We Used Them At Fox News - NBC host Megyn Kelly on Tuesday insisted that Fox News was not being racist when it used the same racially-coded phrases that white supremacists have praised President Donald Trump for using. During an interview with former white supremacist Christian Picciolini, Kelly asked if Trump had sent any "dog whistles" to the white supremacist community. "I do believe that there were dog w...

Pick A War, Lindsey Graham! Iran Or North Korea? - If it's Sunday, it's Lindsey Graham distracting from Trump/Russia by warmongering with both Iran and North Korea. This is responsible Republican leadership? MAJOR GARRETT, HOST, FACE THE NATION: We begin this morning with Republican Senator Lindsey Graham. He joins us from Clemson, South Carolina, where I suspect one or two residents have a rooting interest in tomorrow night's Sugar Bowl. Senator, great to have you with us. Let's get straig...

Bloody Bill Kristol Really Doesn't Like Being Reminded He's A Neocon War Monger - He's a never-Trumper, but that doesn't change the fact that that Bloody Bill Kristol still really loves the idea of dropping bombs on brown people's heads. This Tuesday, during a segment on MSNBC's Velshi & Ruhle, the Weekly Standard editor was none too happy when one of his fellow panel members reminded him of that fact during a discussion about the protests in Iran this week: With the Iranian anti-government...

Senator Orrin Hatch To Retire - Senator Orrin Hatch just announced his retirement, but only after bragging about all the ways he screwed Americans. "As your Senator, I've always sought to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves," he claimed. "And I believe those results speak for themselves." Blah, blah, blah. Here's a fact: The handwriting is on the wall. One of Orrin Hatch's final acts was to celebrate Trump's destruction of the Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears monuments d...

Nikki Haley Confronted: 'What Makes You Think You're On The Right Side Of History?' - You may have noticed that the Trump administration has been agitating against the Iranian government this past weekend. There are some anti-government protests taking place, though not nearly as intense as the ones in 2009, and the right-wing has ached for the day that the theocratic government in Iran is overthrown. Because oil, almost surely. Trump can use some unrest in Iran to warmonger while agitating...

Sen. Lindsey Graham Goes There On Winter Olympics - Did Sen. Lindsey Graham swill down his cough medicine and alcohol laced mouthwash before telling the world that if North Korea goes to the Winter Olympics, the U.S. should boycott them? Allowing Kim Jong Un’s North Korea to participate in #WinterOlympics would give legitimacy to the most illegitimate regime on the planet. I’m confident South Korea will reject this absurd overture and fully believe that if North Korea goes to the Winter Oly...

Are Trump's Tweets Actually Getting Worse? Airline Safety And Jailing Huma Say Yes - It really is time to re-enable that "Make Trump Tweets Eight Again" Chrome extension: He's taking credit for no US airline fatalities...since 2009? I guess your search for the birth certificate kept planes from crashing, eh Donald? No U.S. airline deaths since February 2009. So @realDonaldTrump wants to take credit for the results of the regulations @BarackObama put into place, while also trying to undo the...

Take Back The House In 2018, But Don't Forget The Senate! - As progressives gear up to contest the 2018 midterm Congressional elections, we will hear strategic, tactical, and political arguments for focusing on taking back the House or the Senate as the highest and best use of limited resources: money, volunteers, advertising, etc.. Progressives and other Democrats will want to recapture both chambers, especially after encouraging election wins in Alabama and elsewhere (mostly in state legi...

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) Blames Democrats For Not Funding CHIP - Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) tells Alisyn Camerota that Republicans are ready, willing and able to re-fund the Children's Health Insurance Program -- but the mean old Democrats won't help them. It has nothing to with Republicans holding it hostage to make similarly awful cuts. "Let's talk about CHIP. If you can't protect the most vulnerable children, and the sticking point for Democrats seems to be the coming from this preventative care f...
