One of Hawaii's few elected Republicans just quit and joined the Democrats  

On Wednesday, the number of Republicans in Hawaii's 51-seat House of Representatives dropped from six to five, when former Minority Leader Beth Fukumoto quit the party and applied to become a Democrat. Her Republican colleagues removed her as House GOP leader in early February after Fukumoto, 33, spoke out against President Trump at the Women's March in Hawaii. Fukumoto, a self-described political moderate of Japanese and Irish descent, said she was bothered during the election when she "saw me

17,000 AT&T workers have gone on strike in California and Nevada  

After working without a contract for almost a year, an estimated 17,000 AT&T technicians in California and Nevada went on strike Wednesday. The workers are union members affiliated with the Communications Workers of America, District 9; they say AT&T is cutting their sick time and disability benefits, making them pay more for health care, and continually asking them to perform the duties of higher-paid employees, the Los Angeles Times reports; the technicians usually install and maintain the U-

Samantha Bee wants you to get to know President Trump's top terrorism 'expert,' Sebastian Gorka  

When he was campaigning, President Trump reassured some skeptical voters that he had "the smartest, the sharpest, the greatest minds," and "the best people" on his team. Samantha Bee asked, rhetorically, where all those people are now that he's in the White House. And on Wednesday's Full Frontal, she focused on one of those "best people," senior counterterrorism adviser, Fox News regular, and "Trump whisperer" Sebastian L. v. Gorka.

Middle school security guard spends his free time teaching kids about music  

During the day, Marvin Hatchett is a security guard at Wilson Middle School in Pasadena, California, but once the bell rings, he becomes a music teacher, mentor, and champion of the arts. The school does not have enough money for a music program, and since 1983, Hatchett has served as a one-man performing arts department, teaching students at Wilson everything from the drums to the violin. Many of the students can't afford to purchase their own instruments, and when he's able to secure funds, H

How a conservative schism could break American health care  

The GOP's ObamaCare replacement plan is universally hated, and rightly so. There are many reasons why the American Health Care Act is terrible, but the fundamental one is that Republicans don't agree about health care. There is a schism — and it has all the absoluteness and fervor of a religious split. There are essentially two schools of thought on health care within the conservative movement, and they are simply hard to reconcile. And since no one in the Republican Party has shown the leade...

Ultra conservatives might just save Medicaid  

House Republicans have taken direct aim at Medicaid with their American Health Care Act, which is up for a vote in the House on Thursday. They hate social insurance, and they especially hate any program that benefits the poor — not to mention the fact that programs that include the upper class, like Medicare and Social Security, are more politically risky to attack. So they're trying to slowly strangle Medicaid to death with the same "reform" plan they used on traditional welfare in 1996. But...

Trump's shockingly wise strategy on Chinese cars  

It sounds like President Trump is about to pick a trade fight with China over cars.

And to be perfectly honest, Trump's demands sound pretty reasonable. First, the background: Under World Trade Organization rules, China still qualifies as a developing country.

But the opposite has happened: Protecting the welfare state from foreign moochers has become the single biggest stimulus for nativism in the West. That's true in America, E

It's William Shatner's 86th birthday, and in lieu of presents, all he wants is for The Bachelor's Nick Viall to be the first person eliminated from Dancing With the Stars. Shatner dedicated much of Monday and Tuesday going into great detail about why Viall, best known for being unable to find love until his fourth time on a Bachelor franchise, shouldn't win the competition.

Republicans still don't have the votes to pass their health-care bill  

House Republican leaders say they plan to hold a floor vote on the American Health Care Act on Thursday, regardless of the outcome, despite conceding late Tuesday that they currently lack the votes. With all Democrats opposed, Republicans can lose 21 votes and still push the ObamaCare replacement through, but according to The Hill's tally and House Freedom Caucus leaders, there are at least 22 firm no votes, plus six more House Republicans leaning toward voting against the legislation; The New

White House staffers are reportedly so paranoid about leaks to the media and meddling by the "deep state" that they're going to great lengths so the feds and administration rivals don't listen in on them. "Now, what is a deep state?" Colbert asked. "I thought it's what you achieve after doing three bong hits and watching Pl

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has a problem. His ObamaCare replacement bill, the American Health Care Act, is up for a vote in the House on Thursday and it's an unqualified disaster. In order to give the very richest people in the country a big fat tax cut, the bill would slash the ObamaCare subsidies, especially to old people, who tend to get sick more often and thus use more care than everyone else. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office found that the AHCA would increase premiums for some
