Jeff Flake has a few weeks left in the Senate, and is seemingly determined to use his time symbolically resisting the president in any way possible, except for any ways that would actually have an effect. Maybe it’s not his fault he’s a gigantic spineless loser—maybe he was just born that way—but here we are.
The Daily Caller has an-all caps “exclusive” interview with Donald Trump out today, which went about how you’d expect that kind of thing to go, but this one quote man, this has me stumped.
Right now, there are more than 5,000 U.S. troops stationed at the border between the U.S. and Mexico, ostensibly to provide some deterrent to migrants attempting to cross the border unlawfully. What are they actually doing there? A good question, and one the troops themselves would very much like to know the answer to.
In a stunning development of the vicious (and now legal!) ideological battle over whether or not Jim Acosta should get his White House press pass back, CNN has picked up a bunch of allies, including one very unlikely one: Fox News, the place where Trump can get all of the latest news about white genocide and what a…
There’s a piece in the newest issue of New York, published online this morning, that appears to be 6,467 words of speculative fiction about what would happen if the U.S. split into two sub-republics based largely along states’ voting patterns.
Jerome Corsi, a noted conspiracy theorist and pal of former Trump confidant Roger Stone, said on a livestream Monday afternoon that he expects to be indicted soon as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sweeping investigation.
Recounts, in general, are probably a good thing for elections. It’s great to check your work! Counting up millions of votes submitted through a shitty, inefficient, and sometimes broken system is difficult, and when races are as close as the Senate and gubernatorial contests currently are in Florida, it’s literally …
Republican Rep. Jason Lewis, the former radio shock-jock host who represents Minnesota’s Second Congressional District, lost his bid for re-election last week, and today, he knows just who’s to blame: John McCain.
Here we go again: CNN is reportedly planning an Election Night coverage sequel for Tuesday, one week after we all collectively melted our brains watching cable news for 12 hours on the actual election night.
Matthew Whitaker, who’s acting attorney general now that Jeff Sessions has resigned, is a pretty good Twitter follow. Or so I’ve heard, because unfortunately I don’t follow him. And now I can’t, because Whitaker took his account private on Friday afternoon.
This afternoon, roughly 60 people outside the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office rallied and chanted “Lock her up!” because they think the Democrats are trying to steal an election in Florida.

Lucy McBath, a former flight attendant and gun control advocate whose son, Jordan Davis, was killed in a racist shooting in 2012, has won election to Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District.

Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana has won a third term, according to the AP.
The Republican Party campaigned—and in many places, won—on a platform of overt, vicious racism during the midterms. The full effects of that are just starting to sink in.
It looks like Donald Trump got about five hours of sleep last night, because as of 6:21 a.m. on Wednesday morning he was up and tweeting furiously about the midterms, which to hear him tell it, were absolutely a Big Win for him (they weren’t).
Donald Trump is a big happy boy tonight because the GOP won quite a few high-profile races across the country, and flaunting those big flashy wins sure is nice when your party lost at least 20 seats to hand control of the House to the Democrats.

Texas voted to send incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz back to Washington for a second six-year term on Tuesday, rejecting underdog Democratic U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke in an exceedingly close race. MSNBC called the race for Cruz at just past 10:14 p.m. ET, with ABC and CBS calling the race not long after.
