Kaine’s plan: Turn Pence into Trump

Read More

FARMVILLE, Va. — Democrats are counting on Tim Kaine to help stretch Donald Trump’s bad week into a bad month on Tuesday. But there’s a major difference between Trump and his running mate: Mike Pence knows how to stick to the script. The Virginia senator’s job is to make the Indiana governor uncomfortable defending Trump, whether it’s the business mogul’s $900 million reported loss in 1995, his feud with a…

Trump’s risky early-voting strategy

Read More

Just a few weeks into early voting, it’s too soon to know which presidential campaign is winning the war for ballots cast in advance of Election Day. But one thing is obvious: For better or for worse, in the critical phase of the campaign where roughly a third of the vote was cast in 2012, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are following the same playbooks that got them this far….

Obamacare’s millennial problem

Read More

The 18- to 34-year-olds who helped elect Barack Obama could consign his signature domestic policy achievement to failure. That’s because not enough millennials have signed up for Obamacare to make it work well. Despite repeated outreach — including entreaties from all manner of celebrities, including NBA stars and Obama himself — young people make up less than 30 percent of Obamacare customers. The White House had set a goal of…

Donald Trump implies vets with PTSD aren’t ‘strong’

Read More

On Monday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was speaking to a group of veterans in Virginia when he seemed to divide them into groups that were strong enough to handle the horrors of war and those that were weak. A member of the audience asked Trump about the suicide epidemic among veterans and asked if he would push for faith-based counseling for cases of PTSD. Trump replied that he would…

The week that will decide the election

Read More

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about the 2016 electorate after dozens of polls, it’s this: The Republicans could have nominated a mile-high mound of flaming medical waste and between 38 and 43 percent of the American electorate would have voted for it over Hillary Rodham Clinton. No one is suggesting Donald Trump is quite that bad (the fire engulfing his campaign is merely dumpster-sized) but this isn’t a guy…

Trump’s campaign manager cashes in

Read More

Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway will emerge from the 2016 campaign as a winner, regardless of the result on Election Day, thanks to her unique relationships with a succession of overlapping committees and mega-donors. As Conway’s profile has soared during the 2016 campaign, her small Washington-based polling firm has collected nearly $1.9 million and counting in fees from federally registered political campaign committees — more than twice as much…

What SNL’s weekend anchors really think of 2016

Read More

Michael Che and Colin Jost — co-anchors of SNL’s Weekend Update, the grand-daddy of fake TV newscasts — think Donald Trump is a lot of things. He’s a flim-flam artist, a racial flamethrower, a selfish jerk who hasn’t done a thing for anybody but himself, a guy who shouldn’t be allowed near the Oval Office unless he’s accompanied by a certified tour guide. But there’s one insult, often hurled at…

Recently released dash cam footage has revealed that not only did two Sacramento, California, police officers fatally shoot a homeless African-American man but also they tried to run over him prior to the shooting. The Sacremento Bee reports that one officer can be heard saying “f*** this guy” moments before the fatal shooting, just before the driver says, “I’m going to hit him.” “OK. Go for it. Go for it,” says his…

Want to be a ‘foreign agent’? Serve in Congress first

Read More

Saudi Arabia’s long-standing reservoir of goodwill on Capitol Hill had already been dwindling for years when Congress voted to allow the families of 9/11 victims to sue the kingdom over its alleged involvement in the terrorist attacks. But Saudi Arabia still has lots of allies among retired members of Congress— the ones it pays, at least. And they’re more than willing to leverage their access on Capitol Hill to defend…

Hillary’s high stakes mission to Charlotte

Read More

Hillary Clinton desperately needed to come to Charlotte. She tried too soon, planning a trip last week on the advice of faith leaders, to stand with a community in crisis after another shooting of an unarmed black man by a police officer – only to be rebuffed by city officials who said Charlotte needed time to cool down. But the week-long postponement might prove a benefit to the surging Clinton…

Bombshell report on Trump taxes sends GOP nominee reeling

Read More

It took less than a day for October to produce an “October surprise.” Donald Trump reported a nearly $1 billion loss on his 1995 tax returns and could therefore have avoided paying federal income taxes for almost two decades, the New York Times reported on Saturday, putting another unexpected exclamation point on what had already been one of the worst weeks for any presidential nominee in recent memory. The Times,…
