Trump blasts Mueller over 'bothersome' friendship with Comey  

On Friday, Fox & Friends aired the first televised, in-person interview President Trump has given in six weeks. In it, Trump praised progress on health care, claiming that "I've done in five months what other people haven't done in years," and blamed the Obama administration's "unmasking and surveillance" for his threat to former FBI Director James Comey about tapes of their conversations. "My story didn't change," said Trump, who confessed Thursday he had no tapes. "My story was always a strai

There's Actually Good News Buried in Dems' 4 Losses  

Norm Ornstein, NY Daily NewsRonald Reagan’s favorite joke was about two young twin boys, one a congenital pessimist, the other a congenital optimist. Trying to cure them both, the father first took the pessimist into a room filled with every imaginable toy and game. The boy burst into tears: “I know you will take them all away from me, or they will break!” He then took the optimist to a room filled with horse manure and a shovel.

Can Heitkamp Win Again in Red North Dakota?  

David Byler, RealClearPoliticsIf you were to ask nearly any political analyst or forecaster which Democratic senators are most vulnerable in 2018, Heidi Heitkamp would almost certainly be on their lists. The North Dakota lawmaker, elected by a narrow margin in 2012, has been performing a delicate balancing act: trying to work well with her co-partisans while keeping the electorate of her heavily Republican home state happy. So it’s worth asking -- when we talk about vulnerable Senate incu

Add higher deductibles to the ways Trumpcare will hurt you  

The Senate Trumpcare bill, like the House bill before it, is death (literally, in many cases) by a thousand cuts.

Trump pretended to kill his VA secretary in the middle of an East Room ceremony  

President Trump was feeling especially jovial as the weekend approached on Friday afternoon, even going so far as to "[pantomime] killing off his veterans affairs secretary should he fail to successfully implement new reforms" during a ceremony in the East Room, The Washington Post writes. President Trump said he had "no doubt" VA Secretary David Shulkin would "properly" implement the Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which Trump signed on Friday. But just to be sure he asked, "R

Centrist Democrats are now the great defenders of social justice? Please.  

The left half of the American political spectrum is in the middle of a big fight between the left and the center-left, which will surely get more intense as the midterms approach. Much of the battle, writes Franklin Foer in a very long piece at The Atlantic, will be between economic issues and social justice ones: "Two of the party's largest concerns — race and class — reside in an increasing state of tension, a tension that will grow as the party turns toward the next presidential electi...

1. Senate Republicans on Thursday released their long-awaited proposal to replace ObamaCare. The 142-page bill includes deep cuts to Medicaid and the elimination of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate to acquire health insurance. The Republicans' "Better Care Reconciliation Act" also calls for creating a new menu of tax credits to subsidize premiums, and gives states options to drop some of the benefits required under former President Barack Obama's signature health-care reform bill, su

Trump Hatred Doesn't Deliver Democrats Any Victories  

Fred Barnes, Weekly StandardIn April, Democrat Jon Ossoff got 48 percent of the vote in the special election to pick the new House member from Georgia's Sixth Congressional District outside Atlanta. He came in first but was forced into a runoff with Republican Karen Handel, who got 20 percent to finish second. In the runoff, Ossoff got 48 percent again and lost.How this happened is pretty simple. Ossoff needed to attract Republican voters to win. And there was a theory behind where he'd find th

It was a shocking scene as Capitol police dragged them away and arrested them. But when you find out what was at stake, it's clear why people would risk harm and arrest to protest this.

When former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the program just days before President Trump's inauguration in January, he explained that 31 anti-extremism groups would be getting funding and "among the awardees are organizations devoted specifically to countering

Too often, we think of politics as a game, losing ourselves in the personalities and the strategies and the winning and losing. But the reason it matters in the first place is that all of our lives are affected by politics, by who holds power and what decisions they make. And in those decisions, lawmakers reveal themselves. They show us what — and who — is important to them. Republicans and Democrats aren't just opposing teams, like the Yankees and Red Sox. They represent two alternate visi...

It's being carefully presented as just a discussion bill to give Republican senators the opportunity to publicly declare that that bill "as written" is unacceptable to them, from both the extreme right and the mainstream far right t

"I don't want to just hope the wind blows to light up your house and your factory as the birds fall to the ground," Trump told the crowd. His comment "didn't go over well across Iowa, where the rapid growth of the state's wind energy industry has been a bipartisan success story," The Associated Press writes. It's Friday.

On Thursday's Late Night, Meyers took a closer look at the bill, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wants to have a vote on as early as next week, despite the fact that it was crafted during secretive meetings that were only open to a select group of Republican
