“I’m not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I’m not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid,” Donald Trump told the Daily Signal in 2015. Trump has repeated this pledge to protect Medicaid multiple times via Twitter. He’s also broken it multiple times.
How fast did the U.S. take action against Syria? CNN’s Jeff Zelaney was giving Anderson Cooper the latest update on discussions between Defense Secretary Mattis and President Trump, when Cooper cut him off to announce we had launched a series of Tomahawk missiles into the country.
This is a tough one to write. In the wee hours of November 9th, it was announced Donald Trump would be our nation’s 45th President of the United States. Typing that sentence, I feel as if I’m living in the world of Demolition Man… and we all got served a rat burger.
On Wednesday, a New York Grand Jury made the decision to not indict white police officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner. Pantaleo’s use of an NYPD prohibited choke-hold resulted in the death of the unarmed African-American Garner in July.

Night two of the Democratic National Convention wrapped yesterday with an incredible speech by former President Bill Clinton that will likely have people talking for some time to come. Think of it as the Democratic equivalent to the Eastwood speech… but informative, intelligent and really fucking great. But first, let’s take a look back at night one!
I can’t think of a single more embarrassing, ridiculous and infuriatingly stupid political conspiracy theory than that championed by the birthers.
