Here are 4 ugly personality traits Trump supporters share with their beloved president

Surprise, surprise: members of the #MAGA set are a lot like Trump himself. We already know that many of Trump's supporters are prejudiced, authoritarian, and selfish. Now, a new study shows that Trump voters have even more in common with the president than already thought.

This could be the most pathetic proposal to prevent school shootings to date

Florida’s Broward school district, which oversees the Parkland school where a former student murdered 17 people in February, has announced it has a new plan to keep its schools safe. When students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High return from spring break next week, they’ll be required to ditch their regular Jansports and carry their books and supplies in school-issued, transparent backpacks, the Miami Herald reports.

One of Trump's most devious tactics is how he tries to silence his critics

Every week seems to bring a new target for Trump’s wrath. He simply can’t let anything go. But when his grievances against his enemies are too severe simply to attack them in a series of hateful tweets, you can count on Trump to take it to the next level: the courtroom.

Republicans have devised a new sinister way to cut Social Security

They’re a cunning lot, these elected Republican officials. In their latest plot to revoke the fundamental benefits that have saved millions of seniors from falling into poverty, Republicans are now looking for ways to bribe Americans into forgoing their government-guaranteed retirement security.

The Philadelphia Super Bowl riots expose a racist double standard

Everyone was bracing for pandemonium in Philadelphia on Sunday night after the Eagles won their first ever Super Bowl. The fans are notoriously passionate, after all, and some preventative measures were taken to limit the chaos (police officers even covered lamp posts with Crisco to fan-proof the Philly faithful). But just because the riots, which resulted in three arrests, several injuries, and episodes of vandalism and looting, were expected, nothing excuses the clear racial bias in the response of city officials.

Here are 7 German words that perfectly capture the horror of living in Trump's America

When I set out to research the German words that capture what it feels like to be an American living during the era of the Trump administration, I didn’t expect there to be so damn many.

Who is the 'Washington Post' kidding with this Donald Trump headline?

At this point you’ve got to be pretty naive to think there’s a chance that Donald Trump can redeem himself as president. Most progressives have lowered the bar of expectation for him to such a historic low that liberal pundits like Fareed Zakaria consider Trump's bombing of Syrian military bases, which resulted in 16 civilian deaths, a presidential high point.

Mass shooters aren't self-loathing -- they're humiliated narcissists

Mass shootings are getting more frequent — the Kentucky school shooting this week is the 17th shooting in 2018, an outrageous number considering we’re only one month into the year.

Trump's daily White House schedule will confirm your worst suspicions

A new Axios report confirms something many of us suspected about Donald Trump’s White House: the president spends an inordinate number of work hours watching television and tweeting. In fact, the report implies that Trump spends a limited amount of time actually working, starting work later and holding fewer meetings than when he first took office.

New documentary reveals major coverup and corruption in Las Vegas police department -- before and after the mass shooting

Unanswered questions still surround the mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1 this year. Days after shooter Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and injured over 500, confusing details emerged. Journalists sparred with police at press conferences, grappling for missing details. The security guard who discovered Paddock in his hotel room with 24 guns and was shot by Paddock later disappeared, only to reemerge as a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. To shed light on this confusion, a new film, “What Happened in Vegas,” explores the role of the Las Vegas Police Department after the mass shooting. In short, there’s plenty of evidence to suggest coverups and corruption, as well as repeated police brutality within the force.

Who said it: A Republican congressman or a Christmas villain?

There’s something familiar about the way the GOP talks about the poor. If you've been paying close attention to Republicans in the House and Senate, they may strike you as being eerily reminiscent of other curmudgeons we normally hear from this time of year—infamous villains like Ebenezer Scrooge from Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." Between defenses of their ruthless attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and their ludicrous justifications for passing a bill that slashes taxes for the rich while hiking costs for the poor and middle classes, Republican politicians are sounding more and more like the grumpy, selfish antagonists from our favorite stories of the season.

Michigan police refuse to answer why they arrested an 11-year-old girl at gunpoint

It’s hard to imagine what threat an 11-year-old girl could possibly pose to a dozen armed police officers. One would have to ask the officers in Grand Rapids, Michigan, who last week handcuffed an elementary schooler at gunpoint, placed her under arrest and took her from her mother and home for seemingly no reason.

If you’ve said this recently to your daughter, you may be perpetuating a cycle of violence against women

Sexual assault has arguably become the hot-button issue of the fall. Harvey Weinstein's fall and the #MeToo social media movement have awakened many Americans to the reality that almost every woman has encountered sexual harassment or assault at some point in her lifetime. Now many parents are asking how they can protect their daughters from becoming victims and their sons from being perpetrators. Sexual harassment and assault are highly pervasive among children. According to a 2011 study, 56 percent of girls reported having experienced sexual assault while in school. One piece of advice some parenting experts are giving is: stop telling adolescent girls that boys are mean to them “because they like you.” It’s an outdated response that normalizes male aggression against women at a dangerously young age.

That time Roy Moore refused to convict a child molester who abused a 4-year-old

Roy Moore has had a month or so to forget. Last week, the Washington Post broke the news that he sexually pursued a 14-year-old girl back when he was in his 30s. Since then, a total of five women have accused the Alabama senatorial candidate of harassment and abuse.
