Black Reporter Sean Spicer Insulted Just Got Sweet Revenge

CNN just played the ultimate “April” fools prank on the White House – and the joke is, it’s not a joke. The “most trusted name in news” just hired what might be the most feared reporter in Washington – at least from the Trump administration’s perspective. April Ryan has been a fixture in the West Wing since 1997 when she was appointed White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks.  Now covering her 4th president, she’s been on the front lines of President Trump’s war on the press. Spicer’s treatment of Ryan was widely derided, with many criticizing the sexist and racist undertones of his line of attack,…

Bernie Sanders Riles Progressives, Calls Democratic Party ‘Weak’

Sen. Bernie Sanders waves as he takes the stage at the Our Revolution Massachusetts Rally at the Orpheum Theatre on March 31, 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts. Scott Eisen/Getty Images Since the Democratic Party lost the 2016 presidential election, the party’s establishment has suppressed all calls for reform from progressives. Though the party appointed Sen. Bernie Sanders as its head of outreach, most Democrats continue to treat him and his supporters as unwelcome outsiders. In a recent speech, Sanders provided progressives with insight as to how to advance their values against an inept and increasingly out of touch Democratic Party. “When you have everybody in the establishment against you, how do…

(Sarah Parnass/The Washington Post) The Washington Post’s national security team just registered another big scoop: Shortly before President Trump’s inauguration, Blackwater founder Erik Prince conducted a secret meeting with a Russian close to Vladimir Putin for the purposes of setting up a back-channel line of communication between the Russian leader and Trump, according to U.S., Arab and European officials. The White House is already (sort of) denying that it has anything to do with this. “We are not aware of…

The Gorsuch Filibuster Shows Liberals’ Clout

At least 41 Democratic senators have openly dedicated to filibuster President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, resulting in a possible showdown with Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The filibuster may look like repayment for Democrats after Republicans chose not to consider the nomination of then-President Obama’s Supreme Court candidate, Merrick Garland, for plurality of citizens think the Senate ought to confirm Gorsuch, although a fair number of citizens don’t have an opinion in any case. For that reason, Democrats’ political endgame is uncertain. Gorsuch is rather unpopular with liberal voters, however: by a 61-15 margin, they oppose…

‘Impeach Trump’ banner unfurled at Washington Nationals Opening Day

WASHINGTON– Nationals Park on Monday was filled with baseball fans, but it appears at least a select few of them were extremely not fans of Pres. Donald Trump. A group of fans in participation at the Nationals Opening Day versus the Marlins unfurled a large banner reading “IMPEACH TRUMP” with a hashtag “#RESIST.” It should not come as a surprise, considered that Trump received just 4.1 percent of the vote in Washington D.C in November’s presidential election, according to the New York Times. The banner was shown at the end of the video game, and supposedly did not appear…
