Trump tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that McGraw “got carried away” and “maybe he doesn’t like seeing what’s happening to the country.”

When Trump Steaks at a Trump Event Aren’t Really ‘Trump Steaks’

Trump steaks not Trump steaksWhen Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump showed off a pile of beautifully marbled steaks atop a butcher board at a Tuesday campaign event, he called them “Trump steaks.” That’s true in the sense that they were steaks, and they were on a Trump property.

But they weren’t steaks from Trump’s fabled, now defunct, Trump Steaks business. They were from Bush Brothers Provision Co., a West Palm Beach, Florida, purveyor that counts Trump-affiliated properties among its customers, said John Bush, whose family owns the company. Photographs posted on Twitter showed plastic wrapping on the meat at the televised event where Trump celebrated primary victories in Michigan and Mississippi. The packaging matched that used by Bush Brothers, Bush said.

Donald Trump’s Trolls Unleash Hell on Veterans

Trump and fake supportersVeterans who have passed on being the GOP frontrunner’s props have found themselves targeted by his legion of trolls.

Veterans groups who stood up to Donald Trump’s pandering to their ranks are now routinely bombarded with nasty messages from the mogul’s supporters, who want to punish them for daring to challenge their leader.  

Paul Rieckhoff, the CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, learned this first-hand when he stood up to the Republican presidential frontrunner in late January, saying he would decline any donations from Trump’s charitable foundation if offered.

Obama chooses to fight over Supreme Court

Obama to nominate Scalia replacementPresident Barack Obama, suddenly given perhaps the greatest voter turnout tool ever, was facing the choice between setting off a nasty brawl with Congress by seizing the best chance in a generation to flip the ideological balance of the Supreme Court, or simply punting.  Obama chose the fight.

And he chose it just as the Supreme Court nears the end of a term that’s already shaping up as a referendum on his presidency around just about every core Democratic issue: abortion, affirmative action, union rights, immigration reform and environmental regulations.

The partisan strategy of voter suppression

Voter suppression by the GOPOver the last five years, perhaps no elected official in the country has been more aggressive in placing limits on voting and registration than Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

He authored a provision that created a two-tiered voting system under which some Kansans could cast a ballot for their president but not their governor or any other statewide official. On Jan. 15 a Kansas district court judge struck down the measure, calling it a violation of the state’s constitution and sharply rebuked Kobach, writing, “No such authority exists at all … to encumber the voting process as he has done here.”
