The Religious Right’s idol worship of Trump is dead wrong

Given Donald Trump is a serially accused sexual predator, known racist and misogynist, proven liar, scammer, longtime cheapskate, and creep, some had wondered if the White evangelical Protestants who supported his presidential bid in 2016 would eventually remember who Jesus Christ was and how Christianity and Trumpism aren’t much of…

Striketober is the latest chapter in a long-overdue fight for better wages and fair treatment for workers

Enthusiasm behind a Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson run at the White House is growing. Here we go again.

I’m not surprised that in spite of the ongoing nightmare that’s been Donald Trump’s era as a politician, Americans maintain an appetite for celebrity political candidates.
