A racist Donald Trump tells four freshman Congresswomen of color to “go back” to the “crime infested” countries they come from. Three of the four, however, were born in the United States.

This morning, President Donald Trump posted a series of racist tweets directed at freshman Democratic Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who have collectively become known as “the squad.” In his online tirade against the progressive lawmakers, several of whom have called for […]

While we were all yelling about Trump’s fucking wall, it was established that Paul Manafort funneled internal Trump campaign polling data to the Russians, likely to assist in their anti-Clinton disinformation campaign

Discussing what the election results reveal about the changing political landscape of Michigan with former head of the Michigan Democratic Party Mark Brewer, exploring what future holds with State Reps Yousef Rabhi and Jeff Irwin, and talking about the recent rise in racial intimidation with the ACLU’s Mark Fancher… on this weekend’s episode of the Saturday Six Pack
