Trump’s Base Is a ‘Cult’ That May Never Be Deprogrammed: Report

On Saturday, The Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill posted an analysis of President Donald Trump’s base, and what their recent behavior, which “experts say resembles a cult or totalitarianism,” says about the country’s political health. “Trump has long stoked bigoted grievances among his followers, but the Greenville rally saw him act as a more overt radicalizer than ever before,” wrote Weill. “And with a portion of Trump’s fanbase now openly clamoring for the physical removal of several prominent Democrats of color, experts are questioning whether the country can repair the damage...

A Luzerne County, Pennsylvania school district is under fire for sending letters to parents who owe money for their children’s lunches.

President Donald Trump may have tried to seem like he was distancing himself from the racist “send her back!” chants that erupted at his North Carolina re-election rally, but Friday afternoon he embraced the supporters who gave voice to his thoughts. “Those people in North Carolina, that stadium was packed, it was a record crowd, and I could have filled it ten times, as you know,” Trump falsely told reporters from the Oval Office. There were less than 8000 people in the stadium. “Those are incredible people, those are incredible...

Bragging That ‘Discrimination Is No Longer Tolerated in Texas’ Gov. Signs Bill Allowing Anti-LGBT Discrimination

Surrounded by still-wrapped Chick-fil-A sandwiches, soda cups, supporters, and a small cow with the words “eat mor chikin” on its side, Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott Thursday evening told reporters that “discrimination Is no longer tolerated in Texas.” He then signed a bill that not only allows but enables anti-LGBT discrimination. “No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners gave to a church, the Salvation Army, or to any other religious organization,” Gov.

Trump Launches Insane Rant Slamming ‘Crazed’ Media Coverage After He Lied About ‘Send Her Back!’

President Donald Trump basked in the 13 seconds of glory his days-long attacks on four progressive Democratic Congresswomen earned him: a penultimate fascistic racist screed, chants of “Send her back! Send her back!” from his supporters at a campaign re-election rally some compared to Nuremberg. After watching massive coverage and massive outrage – and even mild rebukes from a few members of his own party, Trump sat in the Oval Office, next to young Special Olympic athletes, and lied to reporters. “I was not happy with it — I disagree...
