None other than Bill Clinton is criticizing the Berniebro phenomenon, saying at an event in New Hampshire this weekend that Sanders supporters subject his wife’s supporters online to sexist and “profane” attacks. Meanwhile, Kathleen Willey, a woman who in 1998 accused Bill Clinton of groping her, has reportedly signed…
One delightful thing about this campaign season will surely be the smart, self-aware, non-obnoxious ways people who don’t like Hillary Clinton talk about her. Like the always reliable media critics at Fox & Friends, who are merely pointing out that isn’t her campaign, in a way, just “bra-burning”?
Ben Carson, a gentle salamander with a tremendously odd manner, isn’t doing so great, campaign-wise, having just cut 50 staff jobs, or about half of his campaign staff. But he does have clean suits, which seems to be quite important to him.
Donald Trump, who lost pretty badly in Iowa last night, would like to congratulate himself.
After months of poll numbers collapsing like a once proud but increasingly weary hairdo, Rand Paul was relegated to the “undercard” GOP debate planned for Thursday night, at No One Is Paying Attention O’Clock. He is not going, because this represents the media and the RNC toying with him.
Carly Fiorina’s week is, thus far, not so hot: she’s polling between 1 and 3 percent, and both she and Rand Paul learned yesterday they’re being booted down to the kid’s table “undercard” debate. We’ll miss Carly whenever she departs, but happily, we’ll always have this very fun interview in Glamour to remember her…
This endless and deeply tragic week in America has brought us precisely one good thing: a reminder that Craig Mazin exists, the one-time roommate and lifelong enemy of Ted Cruz. Fuckin’ Craig. Love that guy.
Senator and man who would be President Ted Cruz spent Monday night at a town hall in Iowa. While there, he generously shared his thoughts on birth control access, namely how easy it is to get some: “Last I checked, we don’t have a rubber shortage in America.” Oh Ted, you really shouldn’t have.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: just a boy standing in front of a state, pleading with that state to return his calls. The New York Times reports that in a bid to revive his struggling presidential candidacy, he’s launched a charm offensive on the state officials of New Hampshire, conducted mostly by text.
Jeb Bush: a man who’s going to ride this thing all the way to the top, says Jeb Bush. A man whose raw, potent, energy would be coiled up “like a caged tiger” in a Senate job, but who’s about to unleash his might and vigor all over this Republican nomination.
Decomposing pumpkin pie inhabited by vicious albino squirrels and presidential candidate Donald Trump had a protester ejected from a rally in Worcester, Massachusetts Wednesday night. As the guy was muscled out, Trump made fun of his weight.
Presidential candidate and bargain bin full of yellowing Jean-Claude Van Damme movies Donald Trump has become more and more enthusiastic about guns. That enthusiasm coincides with him trying to become president, and it’s unchecked by minor considerations like good taste. Trump declared Monday that if 25 people killed…
Thursday night in Iowa, usually reasonable burlap sack full of rancid Peeps and presidential candidate Donald Trump went off the rails. He arrived 40 minutes late and proceeded to give a speech so bizarre and inflammatory that Trump fans on Twitter accused reporters of making it up.
Man-shaped asbestos insulation board and presidential candidate Donald Trump was in Springfield, Illinois yesterday, checking his appearance in every reflective surface and talking about when he’s president. Chiefly, he promised, “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
It’s been a bad month for Ben Carson, and the month is only a few days old. First there were reports that a stabbing incident the candidate recalled in his autobiography, Gifted Hands, might be fabricated. Then there was Politico’s report that Carson lied about being offered a scholarship to West Point. And finally a …
Best-case scenario: Ben Carson tried to stab someone. Alternate scenario: Ben Carson has been lying for years about trying to stab someone when he was 14, a kind of extreme knives-to-surgical-riches story that’s now falling apart when the gentlest breeze is blown upon it.
Rick Santorum is, technically, still running for president. It’s understandable if you didn’t recall that fact. Nobody does.
Great judgment-haver Donald Trump delivered another very presidential interview Monday, telling Breitbart News that Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is “crazy” and “highly neurotic.” Hmm... neurotic. Schultz. Neurotic. Whatever could be going on here?
The GOP presidential candidates, as we know, are very mad about being asked questions during the CNBC debate, and would like to keep such a thing from ever happening again. Washington Post reporters Robert Costa and Dave Weigel got hold of the letter they sent to every network hosting a debate. It’s amazing.
Can something be both a seven-story dumpster fire and more dull than watching a football field’s worth of paint dry one centimeter at a time? With their GOP debate last night, CNBC answered that one resoundingly in the affirmative. The outraged, performative yelping from both the candidates and conservative news…
