Stephen Colbert was intrigued by one particular leak from James Comey's new Trump book  

Right before Stephen Colbert tape his Late Show monologue on Thursday, the first excerpts from former FBI Director James Comey's new book started leaking, and one passage caught Colbert's eye — Comey's claim that President Trump was obsessed with the salacious parts of the Russia dossier, worried that there was "even a 1 percent chance" Melania Trump might believe the rumors. "Yes, it would bother him, because she'd be off by about 99 percent," Colbert joked. "Oh, come on! Sanctimonious m

Trump's firing of Rosenstein and Sessions is reportedly imminent  

President Trump was reportedly so enraged by an FBI raid of his personal attorney's office and hotel that he is now on the brink of firing Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general he appointed, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "It's a matter of when, not if," an anonymous person who has been in talks with Trump this week told The Wall Street Journal. Investigators seized files from Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime attorney, on Monday. The raid was conducted by Manhattan law enforcem

The daily business briefing: April 13, 2018   

1. President Trump said in a meeting with farm state lawmakers and governors on Thursday that he had told his aides to "take another look" at getting the U.S. back into the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade pact he dumped last year shortly after taking office. Getting back into the 11-nation free trade deal would mark a sharp reversal of his previous position. Trump has slammed the deal, negotiated by the Obama administration, as a terrible arrangement for the U.S. Lawmakers from both parties h

The Opposition accuses Alex Jones of being a 'crisis actor,' pointedly tries to apologize  

Misunderstood conspiracy-monger Alex Jones was in Washington, D.C., this week to talk about the defamation lawsuits piling up against him and his organization, InfoWars, and The Opposition sent Kobi Libii down to cover the event. Libii was not allowed into Jones' press conference, and that didn't strike him as the kind of thing the real Alex Jones would do to a fellow "citizen journalist." "And that's when I realized what the actual Alex Jones would think," Libii said. "Watching the livestream

The tween mistakes of Rampage and Truth or Dare  

Basing a movie on a game makes a certain amount of sense. Be it board, video, or party, and old game doesn't involve a beloved story to be painstakingly adapted; in some cases, a game provides little more than a premise. Really, they're marketing hooks sharpened by a vaguely comforting sense of nostalgia, which is all that some studios want out of "intellectual property" anyway. This weekend brings a pair of additions to Game Cinema: Rampage, adapted from the old arcade game about monsters bust

Paul Ryan has endorsed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to take over his role as speaker of the House. "I fully anticipate handing the gavel over to the next speaker of the House after this term, and I think Kevin is the right guy to step up," Ryan said on a Meet the Press exclusive Friday morning. Ryan said members of Republican leadership, including Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) — largely considered to be McCarthy's top competition for the job — agree with his decision. Rep...

Scott Pruitt 'thinks he's the president of the United States,' EPA staffer says, but he was a terrible tenant  

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt's profligate spending of taxpayer money isn't new — he reportedly jacked up spending when he was Oklahoma attorney general, too — but EPA officials have justified most of it by citing apparently very overblown concerns about Pruitt's safety. And Pruitt's main enabler, Politico says, is the head of his 19-person 24/7 security detail, Pasquale "Nino" Perrotta. Perrotta, a former Secret Service agent, encouraged or insisted that Pruitt (and himself) fly first cla...

Fox & Friends' Ainsley Earhardt ponders aloud if bombing Syria would possibly bury the Comey news cycle  

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but missiles can conveniently distract from a story you don't want out there. That, at least, is the apparent thinking of Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt, who just happened to wonder aloud Friday if bombing Syria "would be a bigger story than [James] Comey's book that is released on Tuesday." The Republican National Committee has been fighting to discredit "Lyin' Comey" ahead of the release of A Higher Loyalty, the former FBI director's account of his

America should just stop all bombing  

Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad apparently launched another chemical attack recently, and President Trump threatened to launch missiles at something (he wasn't clear what) in response. Russia retaliated by threatening to shoot down any missiles that were launched, and now we're in another good old-fashioned standoff with a nuclear superpower, with bloodthirsty maniac John Bolton at the president's side. Here's an idea. Let's just stop all bombing, just to see how it works out. Perhaps we might

Beyond the pee tape  

The fabled "pee tape" is back. Reviews of former FBI Director James Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty, are already making the rounds and it's hard not to focus on his blow-by-blow account of the time he told then-President-elect Donald Trump about the possible existence of a Russian blackmail video that supposedly featured Trump hiring prostitutes to urinate on a bed that President Obama once slept on. According to Comey, Trump became obsessed with the rumor. Yet as salacious as these details are,

Usually, 14-year-old Brennan Walker takes the bus to his high school in Rochester Hills, Michigan. But he missed the bus Thursday morning, so he decided to walk. But Walker got lost on the way. So the black teenager knocked on a door for directions — and got shot at. The woman who answered the door told 911 operators that a black male was trying to break into her home, BuzzFeed News reported.

"Trump might have a secret kid?" Trevor Noah asked on Thursday's Daily Show. "I bet everyone who doesn't know their father right now is panicking.

A centrist manifesto for a populist moment  

We can all sense it: the hollowing out of the center, the ever-increasing polarization of our public life.

Those of us who favor a politics of consensus, conciliation, and the common good are distressed by the trend. But too

By a 48 percent to 32 percent margin, Americans say Comey is more believable than Trump, and by a similar 47-33 percent margin, they disapprove of Trump's decision to fire Comey — even though Americans don't view C...

More details about McCabe's alleged transgressions were revealed in the report, The New York Times explains. The
