There is no joy in Naziville Trump world Thursday, because Facebook struck out Team Trump -- at least insofar as it made them take down the Nazi symbolism referring to Antifa on their reelection campaign pages, because the symbols violated...
The Lincoln Project has a $4 Million ad buy in three states and "Trump Stooge" is the one running in Maine. It is a short but stunning indictment of Susan Collins and it compares her most unfavorably to other...
Donald Trump is not of this world. He may physically be in it, but on all other levels, he is a being unlike the rest of us. The man honestly cannot distinguish reality from fantasy and because he's been...
