Trump’s supposed advantage with Latinos isn’t all that it seems

Trump’s supposed advantage with Latinos isn’t all that it seems

The Pew Research Center released polling this week that casts serious doubt on recent surveys showing Donald Trump making significant gains among Black and Latino voters. The Pew survey suggested majorities of Latino, Black, and Asian voters continue to largely favor the Democratic Party. The results show very little change among Black and Latino Americans since the early 1990s, while white voters remain almost exactly as aligned with the Republican Party as they were in the early ‘90s. “Not much…

Donald Trump’s desperation is showing—more than usual

Donald Trump’s desperation is showing—more than usual

As the ides of April approach, Donald Trump faces a heap of trouble—of his own making, naturally—that has him flopping about like a stunned carp on the bottom of a rowboat. And, frankly, he’s looking pretty desperate. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty desperate. There’s more video of Trump bragging about overturning Roe v. Wade than of Melania slapping his wee, scurvy hand away, so he can’t really run away from the issue. But he sure is trying. And as dense…

With Donald Trump’s hush-money criminal case set to begin Monday, comedian Jimmy Kimmel used his late night show on Thursday to talk about how “things are not looking good for yabba dabba doofus Donald Trump.” First, Kimmel brought up Trump’s three failed attempts this week to get his trial delayed, pointing out that this is how Trump stalls.  “All his trials are behind schedule, and most now won’t likely happen until after the election, if at all.” Kimmel joked. “I…

Murder charges, tax-dodging, and more: The GOP’s got a vetting problem

Murder charges, tax-dodging, and more: The GOP’s got a vetting problem

During Donald Trump’s first campaign to ruin everyone’s mental health for nearly a full decade, the multi-indicted meme stock pusher who’s been found liable for sexual abuse famously—or perhaps infamously—claimed he hires “only the best” people. What he perhaps meant to say is that he hires only the best people and then fires them almost immediately—or keeps them around long enough for them to realize he’s a dangerous affront to democracy. Then again, by Trump’s own admission, a large percentage of his hires…

Caribbean Matters: Puerto Ricans are losing Puerto Rico to a tax scam

Mainland U.S. residents who are not Puerto Rican rarely pay attention to the politics of the island. If there is a hurricane, or some other natural disaster there, media will cover it, but soon enough, the coverage fades. So it’s up to us “not-Boricuas” to pay attention and speak out against policies and laws that are negatively impacting Puerto Ricans. We must join their voices and amplify their cries for justice. One key law enacted in Puerto Rico that is having a disastrous impact…

Watch Seth Meyers drag Trump’s desperate lies about his abortion policies

On Wednesday night’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the comedian focused his always worthwhile Closer Look segment on Donald Trump’s damage control video on abortion.  “Donald Trump is desperately trying to convince people that he’s not an extremist on abortion, after proudly taking credit for overturning Roe v. Wade,” he said, “which has now led to a horrendous ruling in Arizona outlawing almost all abortions in the state based on a Civil War-era law.” Meyers began the segment showing clips…
