Today, 12 Marines were killed by an ISIS suicide bomber in Afghanistan. Republicans almost immediately went on the attack against the Biden administration. Spineless Missouri lawmaker Josh Hawley even called on the president to resign.
It is not a monolith, but generally police officers support the Republican party. So what happens when supporters of the party savagely attack cops? The answer, so far, has been a whole lot of nothing.
As horrible as the events of 1/6 were, the vast majority of Republican lawmakers would like people to forget about it. A select few GOP congresspeople were willing to investigate the matter.
Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney both accepted Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to participate in the 1/6 panel. And for their service to their country, they were branded “Pelosi Republicans.”
COVID never had to become a political issue. Unfortunately, then the virus hit American shores, the worst possible person was in charge. And Donald Trump had no problem downplaying the seriousness of the virus if it helped his chances at reelection.
There are many people in Donald Trump‘s orbit that are now facing legal trouble. The CFO of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, was recently arrested. And Rudy Giuliani, the former president’s friend and sometimes lawyer has his New York City apartment searched.
For months now, New York prosecutors have treated their investigation into the Trump Organization like an investigation into organized crime. And like high profile mob case, investigators are trying to get lower level soldiers to flip on the boss.
As more and more Americans get inoculated against COVID-19, the anti-vaccination people seem to be getting increasingly desperate.
During a Tuesday night hearing in Ohio, a doctor named Sherri Tenpenny made some wild claims about vaccinations. She told lawmakers, “They (people who have gotten their shots) can put a key on their forehead. It sticks. They can put spoons and forks all over them and they can stick because now we think that there’s a metal piece to that.”
Donald Trump‘s presidency was impactful in many ways. His most long lasting actions, though, might be in the courts. Not only did he place 3 Conservative justices on the Supreme Court, he appointed Republican judges all over the United States.
Preet Bharara has a pretty good idea of how Donald Trump operates. When Trump took office, Bharara was working as the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The 45th president fired the renowned judge shortly after taking office.
For the last 5 years, Donald Trump and his enablers have done everything to shield Trump from any consequence for his actions. But now that Democrats are in charge of the White House, House and Senate, their ability to do so is slowly fading.

Fast forward 20 years and the Trump lawyer was holding a news conference next to a sex shop. There was also the humiliating appearance in the latest Borat film.
“Why should I put any of them on TV?”
That’s the question CNN‘s Jake Tapper asked viewers during an appearance on “New Day,” noting that he hasn’t booked any Republicans on his “State of the Union” show since January, the month when a group of former President Donald Trump‘s supporters stormed the United States Capitol and congressional Republicans entrenched themselves further in baseless conspiracies about the 2020 general election.
After playing a clip of the comments, CNN's Jake Tapper remarked, "I don’t even know what to say to that, it’s so stupid."
January 6th was a dark day in American history. Scores of Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol intending to do harm to Republicans and Democrats alike.
Since that event, more than 310 of those insurrections have been arrested. But many more are not done yet.
CNN journalist Jake Tapper criticized former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she published a tweet that appeared to be a signal to stir up subscribers to the QAnon conspiracy theory. Those who follow QAnon believe that Democrats are part of a global pedophile ring that engages in sex-trafficking and conspired against former President Donald Trump during his time in office.
George Conway had been a Republican his entire life when Donald Trump came around. His wife Kellyanne, of course, became a key member of Team Trump.
Trump, however, was too much for Conway to stomach and he’s done everything he can to get him out of office. This includes becoming a founding member of the Lincoln Project.
Exit polls are going to be a bit different this year. Most years, the exit polls matter much more. But this year, the vast majority of Americans have already voted. So the exit polls have to be taken with a grain of salt.

Donald Trump is polling horribly in nearly every swing state. And the president is even doing poorly in states that he is expected to win. A new Quinnipiac poll released on Tuesday showed Trump trailing Biden by 3% points in Georgia.
