What, now Trump's to be taken seriously? How convenient

Thank you, MSNBC: First Maddow, now Scarborough, lots of LOLs

MSNBC, fresh off a red face from Rachel Maddow TV revelations that were tantamount to reporting, "hey, President Donald Trump paid his taxes," apparently tried a bounce-back of sorts with another host, Joe Scarborough, who attempted to prove his mettle by taking on a Top Trump Dog, attorney Michael Cohen, via Twitter.

Middlebury College rage may have shocked the liberal consciousness

It was an angry, hateful rage, which may have even shocked the liberal consciousness.

Please God, not another Clinton

- The Washington Times

Please, God, make it stop. Eight years of Bill Clinton. Two White House tries of Hillary Clinton. Four more years of Hillary at State. And now their child, Chelsea, seems to be positioning herself for some kind of political run, too? No, no, no, no, no.

Pelosi's Twitter feed: It's still the repeal, stupid

Be careful what you ask for, as the saying goes. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi learned the hard way not to ask unfiltered, un-vetted constituents for their stories on Obamacare -- because what she heard back was hardly what she wanted.

Sharia is not compatible in U.S. -- and here's why

Republicans gone drunk on health care power

- The Washington Times

Come on, Republicans. Have you gone commie? How else to explain this, from CNN: "While Republicans are pushing to drop the requirement of Obamacare that compels Americans to get insurance, another move in a separate bill could compel employees to participate in workplace wellness programs that collect their and their families' health and genetic data."
