Is Trump’s campaign over?

Read More

It’s fitting that the election of Hillary Clinton as the first female president might have been sealed by Donald Trump’s treatment of women as subordinate, interchangeable, pliable playthings. Trump — a compulsively public politician who has mouthed some of the most hilarious (intentionally or otherwise), offensive, fact-allergic and misogynistic statements by anyone competing in the public arena — might be ultimately undone by a private admission about a woman he…

Democrats condemn GOP for sticking by Trump

Read More

The problem for Donald Trump’s supporters as they rush for the exit over that 2005 tape of him bragging about sexual harassment and assault: answering why this was what pushed them over the edge on him, or if it even did. Anyone who bails or rushes to condemn him now implicitly accepted everything that’s come before—his saying Mexicans are rapists, that Megyn Kelly must have been menstruating when she aggressively…

There is no doubt that Haiti needs help, just as the nation has been in need after other natural disasters, other storms, and the 2010 earthquake, which measured at magnitude 7.0 and left more than 160,000 people dead and 1.5 million people displaced. In the aftermath of the earthquake and other…

Donald Trump still believes Central Park Five are guilty

Donald Trump still believes that the Central Park Five were guilty. The group of five teenage boys were arrested in 1989 after a jogger was found tied up, stripped and suffering from both hypothermia and brain damage after having been raped and beaten with a rock. The five teens were in the park at the time and were questioned for over two days before police said that they confessed to…
