Taking reporters’ questions after an appearance at Trump National Doral, in Doral, Florida, Donald Trump delivered some of his most unhinged proclamations of an already unhinged campaign.
A lot of American cities have fucked up in a very important way: they haven’t been building enough housing. And just turning the shed in the back yard into a rental ain’t gonna cut it.
On Sunday, former Harrisburg city councilman Brad Koplinski was arrested at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia after being caught on security cameras stealing parking passes and food vouchers from a media logistics operation for the Democratic National Convention.
On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton became the first woman nominated as a major party presidential candidate. It was a historical moment in the United States, and despite the controversies around this election, it cannot be underplayed. Unless you’re designing the front cover of a major newspaper on Wednesday.
One of the two attackers who were shot dead after taking hostages and killing a priest at a Catholic church in Normandy, France, on Tuesday had twice been released from prison after attempting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State. One of the hostages said the attackers made her husband film as they slit the…
The Kremlin unequivocally denied on Tuesday reports that it was involved in hacking the Democratic National Committee’s emails, even as American intelligence agencies become increasingly convinced that their Russian counterparts did in fact have something to do with it.

The first speaker of the Democratic Convention on Tuesday night was Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who was once described by the Washington Post as “close as family” to the Clintons. His buddies did him a nice favor getting him a slot on the main stage tonight, though I can’t imagine this is how they imagine…
On Tuesday, conservative commentators sprang into actually to “fact check” Michelle Obama’s remark about the White House being built with slave labor, successfully missing the point of her story to note that, hey, lots of non-slaves worked on it too. Bill O’Reilly went one further, however, weirdly stating that the…
On Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention, Howard Dean brought us to the brink before cruelly denying us the greatest pleasure of all: His beautiful scream.
As I sat down in the media tent across from the Wells Fargo Center to write this post, there were 40 or so Bernie Sanders delegates and other supporters in here with me, milling around and talking to the press, and a couple hundred more just outside. They had just staged a walkout from the Democratic National…
Bill Clinton is scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night, although “scheduled” might be a bit misleading, given that the former President has never met a time limit he couldn’t double.
PHILADELPHIA — As the prophets foretold, a generation born under the first Clinton presidency would grow to know many misfortunes: A recession, lots of Dick Cheney airtime during its formative years, and “Gilmore Girls.” This generation, the fates dictated, would rise up in pained chorus against that misfortune to be…
