Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump isn’t winning over the female vote. To win the White House, the GOP front-runner would have to do something about his 70 percent negative favorability rating with female voters and given his acidic remarks about women, it would take a miracle. On Monday Trump defended his past controversial remarks on women, saying that they date from his time as a celebrity entertainer. Megyn Kelly would disagree. So would others.  The Hill reports: Radio host Charlie Sykes challenged the Republican presidential candidate during an interview on WTMJ in Milwaukee, asking whether the rules are different for celebrities…

Many of us were led to believe that Mitt Romney was just the sad and pathetic rich kid who only had friends due to his money. Conversely, Trump appears to be more like the alt 1985 universe Biff Tannen from “Back to the Future”; that is, he scares people into wanting to be his friend due to his money and influence. But it turns out that Trump is actually just begging for friends. Despite the fact that we’re always hearing Trump name drop some celeb or business leader with whom he claims to be great friends, the reality is quite the…

It is pretty obvious that Donald Trump is a dream come true to white supremacists in the United States, they have had no problem shouting this fact from the rooftops after all. New research now shows that yes, racists love Trump and in fact, a person’s level of prejudice determines how likely they are to support the bigoted billionaire. A recent American National Election Studies 2016 pilot survey helps provide a way to actually examine the level of racism among voters. The internet survey, conducted by YouGov, looked at 1,200 respondents between January 22 and 28 of 2016, and it included…

Colorado may be the first state in the United States to implement a universal healthcare system. Sadly, efforts to bring socialized medicine to The Centennial State are being fought by the biggest nemeses of American progress – the Koch Brothers. KOCH BROTHERS VOW TO BAR ACCESS TO MEDICAL CARE Amendment 69 would benefit Coloradans in ways the ACA never could. Citizens in the state would actually be able to enjoy the same access to medical care as the rest of the developed world. Of course, any attempt to improve the lives of working class people is inevitably met with staunch opposition from right-wing extremists. Truthout reports that a…

Whatever Ben Carson has managed to extract in the way of a future job or position with Donald Trump beyond this election cycle, it must indeed be something of great value because he’s turning into one of Trump’s biggest cheerleaders. Appearing on the Fox News show “Fox and Friends” this morning, Carson predicted that should Trump not win the nomination or if the GOP denies him at a brokered convention, the Republican Party will face “absolute destruction.” Hey, sounds good to me! Next issue, please! Carson added: “I can tell you this. If there are shenanigans, if it’s not straightforward, all…

The former director of a pro-Donald Trump Super PAC officially defected from Team Trump on Monday with an essay on xoJane about how she lost faith in her candidate of choice. Stephanie Cegielski, a strategist and communications specialist, says she was brought in to run the Make America Great Again Super PAC last summer, but ultimately came to realize what everyone who hasn’t fallen under the Trump spell could sniff from the very beginning: Trump is wholly unprepared to be president and is only out for himself. Cegielski paints a picture of a campaign and candidate that began with modest…

Third parties have rarely posed much of a threat to the dominant two parties in America. So how did the People’s Party win the U.S. presidency and a majority of both houses of Congress in 2020?  It started four years before, with the election of 2016. As you remember, Donald Trump didn’t have enough delegates to become the Republican candidate, so the GOP convention that summer was “brokered” – which meant the Party establishment took control, and nominated the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. Trump tried to incite riots but his “I deserve to be president because I’m the…

https://youtu.be/g4nU8zHpLko Sunday on Meet the Press, Donald Trump ran afoul of fact when NBC’s Andrea Mitchell laid bare the truth about the Republican presidential frontrunner, saying Trump is “completely uneducated about any part of the world,” and that “When he doesn’t know something, he just changes the subject, makes it all about himself.” This is not exactly what you want to see in a presidential candidate. This has been fairly obvious for some time, but, for example, if you read the transcript of The New York Times‘ telephone interviews with Trump about foreign policy, it becomes blindingly…

We all know by now that Donald Trump is a Twitter aficionado. Throughout his presidential campaign, he has taken to Twitter again and again, most recently to duke it out with fellow Republican candidate Ted Cruz. Throughout the Trump/Cruz Twitter war, both candidate’s wives have stayed out of the spotlight, although Cruz’s wife, Heidi, has fired back at Trump. Trump’s wife, Melania, is still keeping quiet about the fight between her husband and Cruz, but she did break her Twitter silence today, tweeting for the first time since July 4. Don’t get too excited, though. Melania Trump’s tweet was nothing…
