secret-plotThe GOP complained endlessly about the democrats and how there wasn't enough transparency back in 2009 when Obamacare was passed. Frankly, that is a myth.

caesarTrump supporters protested a rendition of Julius Caesar in Central Park. They were upset that the lead role was a Trump-like character. The Right is jumping on this as an example of left-wing Trump-hating. To be fair, in 2012 the company also produced a version with Obama as Caesar.  Read More and Comment

dear-leaderTrump's cabinet meeting love-fest was a sight to behold. Seemingly sane human beings sitting around a table falling all over themselves to kiss Trump's ring. Even North Korea's Kim Jong Un would have felt dirty after all that fawning.  Read More and Comment
