Clinton’s response follows days of aggressively snide comments from the right, who have rallied behind Donald Trump, Jr. — suddenly a proponent of the “liberal,” “fake news” Times now that it’s published a report that can be used against Democrats — to call out the “hypocrisy” of any and every left-leaning celebrity who’s ever made a comment on politics if they have yet to formally challenge Weinstein to a duel.Read More

Aww, Look at This Poor Breitbart Editor Being Personally Attacked by Vogue, Jennifer Lawrence & the Statue of Liberty
Predictably, Carney's response to everyone laughing at him for losing it over a picture of the Statue of Liberty was to say that we were all "triggered." Yes, that's right. Us. Not the man who can't look at a magazine cover.Read More
You can take the Republican out of the Party, but you can't take the misinformed, backwards ideology out of the Republican.Read More
Twitter is not feeling the need to be kind.
John McCain took a break from recovering from brain surgery to fly across the country and participate in today's senate vote. The internet is not holding its tongue in telling him why that's terrible.Read More

Mike Pence, our theocrat-in-waiting Vice President and a man I now call "the Spanish Inquisition," went on Fox & Friends in the face of international outcry about Trump's Paris Accords decision.

This Cannot Be the New Normal: GOP Candidate “Body Slammed” & Punched a Reporter for Asking Question on Health Care
We saw on Trump's campaign tour how he turned crowds against the press, promoting violence against journalists at rallies. So after that guy won, why would colleagues and supporters feel at all deterred from letting loose their own rage?

Republican Lawmaker Who Created Reddit’s Red Pill Forum Dragged by Women at an Investigative Hearing
Don't worry, though. He swears he's "never hated women."
"I can tell you with certainty, rape is no joke. When you use it to fumble around with other rape apologists in chatrooms designed to discuss sexual strategies with other misogynists, you are not just participating in rape culture.

It's hard to traverse the Internet lately without tripping over articles on how Hulu's Handmaid's Tale adaptation seems eerily relevant these days, but pointing that out is only one way to put things into frightening perspective. Another, as demonstrated in this Refinery29 video from Samantha Bee's Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner is to have people try to tell the difference between our actual reality and dystopian fiction.Read More
