An awful lot of Trump’s defenders in conservative media appear to be shocked by what is happening right now in America. But I’m kind of curious. What did they think was going to happen? The president has a real job. His words have real consequences....
Tim MillerExcellent @SarahLongwell25 on "the most predictable catastrophe in history." Trump defenders made a race hustler President and then enabled him at every turn.
"What Did They Think Would Happen?"
Back in the halcyon beforetimes of Summer 2014, there was an annoying online trend that began materializing in all of our social media feeds, something cultural commentators and jaded social media users alike knew needed to be snuffed out if we were...
Tim MillerI wrote an essay on Mask Wars and the virus and MAGA trolls and police violence and the ice bucket challenge.
Actually, Virtue Signaling Is Good.
Jonathan V. Last makes a compelling case that Twitter should ban Donald Trump. I’m going to make a counterpoint, but he reminds us of several crucial facts here: Twitter is a private company and “private companies are legally allowed to make...
Tim MillerExcellent @SykesCharlie on the misplaced focus on @jack. Don’t blame the pus for the infection. Banning trump from twitter would just send his screeds elsewhere and add to the victim complex.
The brother of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich wrote a letter on Tuesday to the executive producer of Sean Hannity's Fox News show pleading with him to find "decency and kindness" in his heart and stop spreading an unproven...
Tim MillerThis is the second time the family of an American citizen who had died tragically young has had to beg the president and his propagandists to stop invoking the deceased’s name to advance a politically motivated conspiracy theory.
Well, I guess we can close the file on that one. Yesterday the Keystone Spooks leading the Trump intelligence regime fully declassified the “mysterious” Susan Rice email that was at the heart of their absurd conspiracy to charge former president...
Tim MillerI wrote about the morbidly thin fake controversy surrounding the Susan Rice email, @tedcruz’s willingness to lie for his bully, and the real scandal the media is ignoring: Trump using the DNI to fabricate a crime against his political foes.
Tim MillerSince email protocols were so important to the Trump campaign I do hope Grenell saved all communications with Parscale, Trump Jr., etc about #Obamagate and that @HouseIntel will review.
Tim MillerTo all those wondering why #Obamagate randomly became a thing in the middle of a pandemic 5 months from an election - this is the answer. The President's new senior campaign aide needed to authorize the politically targeted leaks in the last week he could.
The Washington Post published a picture of Stacey Abrams wearing a cape this weekend. You may have seen it, since in certain corners of the conservative news media, this fawning coverage of the becaped former state senator and vice-presidential...
Tim MillerI wrote about where Abrams #Capegate ranks on the weekend of outrage and why the media is missing the biggest ongoing scandal: Trump DOJ/DNI fabricating espionage claims against Biden to help the presidents reelection.
ALLENTOWN, Pennsylvania — President Trump, speaking to the Washington Examiner ahead of an event at a medical supply facility in this key swing state, took aim at Joe Biden’s mental faculties, at one point claiming his Democratic challenger “has...
I know that I should really be writing about the clash between Anthony Fauci and Rand Paul, the arguments in the Supreme Court about presidential immunity, the cultural war over masks, and the new polls out of Wisconsin. But I’m stuck on this story...
Tim MillerRead @SykesCharlie on his personal experience with the cruelty of conspiracy. When the president uses tragedy for his own political purposes there are real human consequences.
Tim Miller“Trump’s allies in the conservative media and the Justice Department are taking #Obamagate very seriously. This conspiracy is informing our foreign policy and millions in tax dollars are being spent in a “full throttle” effort to prove that it is correct.”
This week America tallied the 75,000th official death from COVID-19—the real number won’t be known until after the crisis has passed and will be much higher. Last week the 30 millionth unemployment claim was submitted. Amidst this death and...
Tim MillerI wrote about the idiotic, damning, and self-confessing “Orange Man Bad” meme and those who employ it. 🍊🍊🍊
