Yes, FBI director James Comey was unceremoniously fired by Donald Trump after beginning an investigation into his associations with Russia, but let’s not forget that he’s part of the reason why Trump was elected in the first place. Now it looks like his persistent investigation into Hillary Clinton was even more bogus…
In light of Lawfare editor Benjamin Wittes’s recollection that former FBI director James Comey—after trying to blend into the curtains—had been “disgusted” by Trump’s attempt to hug him at a White House event in January, former Clinton staffer Philippe Reines released a video of Hillary Clinton practicing dodging his…
MANHATTAN—On Tuesday night, more than 1,000 people attended a star-studded gala celebrating Planned Parenthood’s Centennial Anniversary, which honored Hillary Clinton and producer Shonda Rhimes for their work advancing the rights and representation of women’s reproductive freedom.
Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign opens with the Democratic candidate’s staff preparing for the Roosevelt Island speech in which she would officially kick off her 2016 presidential bid. New York City is sweltering, her staff is exhausted, and, despite years of ostensible planning, the draft is still…
On Thursday Hillary Clinton sat down with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for her first public interview since the election at the Women in the World Summit and revealed that in her forthcoming book, she will tackle the role misogyny played in the election.
Hillary Clinton is not the president, despite really wanting to be. Her daughter Chelsea Clinton does not even want to be a councilwoman.
Hillary Clinton gave a notably political speech on Tuesday at the Professional Businesswomen of California’s annual conference in San Francisco. In addition to mentioning all our Chappaqua Woods memes, she stated, “There is no place I’d rather be than here with you, other than the White House.”
Despite my constant screaming into the abyss about how the culture does not need fictionalized television representations of the 2016 election, it looks like we’re getting another one.
Would you have voted for Hillary Clinton if she were a man? The leading counterfactual argument about gender and the presidential election was that Clinton, as a candidate, was a prisoner of a double standard—in the simplest shorthand, that a woman acting like Donald Trump could never have won the election.
Your fourth-or-fifth-favorite late night talk show host is hosting the Oscars this Sunday, and to fete this semi-momentous occasion Variety has featured him on the cover of their latest issue.
It’s starting to feel like this has turned into one giant Donald Trump shade column and I hate hate hate it. I understand that, to some extent, this cannot be avoided. He is an extremely disliked man and instead of blood, he survives off of the pumping of media attention through his veins.
It’s been awhile since we’ve watched video of Hillary Clinton talking into the camera with her trademark calm, robotic cheer, and I didn’t realize how much I missed it until now.
Katy Perry has been busy lately, but her work has predominately taken place off-stage. After campaigning vehemently for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, she has donated to Planned Parenthood, produced and bankrolled a pro-Muslim PSA, and participated in the Women’s March on Washington. But on…
Jason Chaffetz, who is singularly responsible for perpetuating the Benghazi psychosis, shook hands with Hillary Clinton on Friday afternoon. “So pleased she is not the President,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “I thanked her for her service and wished her luck. The investigation continues.” What a rat bastard.
Donald Trump is an orange-zested trash collection site known primarily for gilding everything and bullying everyone. There are enough anecdotes attesting to this latter attribute to fill many, many books (and they will), but a sampling might include: making fun of a physically disabled reporter, spreading lies about…
Black-ish transformed last night’s iconic Trump episode, “Lemons,” into a play-by-play rundown of the country’s emotions and passions on and after election night, and as usual the points made were comedically poignant and often brilliant. But I’m still grappling with how the episode ended.
On Wednesday, a story floating the possibility of a Hillary Clinton run for mayor of New York bubbled up out of the paranoid right-wing stew that is Newsmax.com, citing anonymous sources speculating that “She’s talking about it.” She is almost certainly not, but that hasn’t stopped the New York Times from running not…
