Modeling Christian compassion on Easter, Trump tells 800,000 young American immigrants that he will not seek a solution to protect them from deportment

Happy #MAGA Easter, everyone. Here, in celebration of how far we’ve come, is an ugly reminder of how things were before we had a born-again (porn star fucking) evangelical (pussy grabber) in the White House (colluding with a dictator to bring down our democracy).

The lesson of today’s Hobby Lobby decision: A corporation’s right to religious freedom trumps your right to reproductive health care

“The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield,” Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote today in her vociferous dissent following the high court’s 5-4 decision to allow certain employers the right not to provide coverage for medical procedures and medications that run contrary to their stated religious beliefs.
