If you were wondering how Stephen King's feeling about the current state of politics, look no further than his most recent tweet. On Tuesday, the horror author took to Twitter to blast Trump with what is perhaps one is his most no-holds-barred posts of the year so far (admittedly there are quite a few of these to choose from, but it's got to be up there). SEE ALSO: 38 times Stephen King absolutely slammed Donald Trump on Twitter Here's the tweet, which at the time of writing has been shared around 12,000 times: Trump condones murder, then explains it's okay for his daughter to do what he wanted Hillary Clinton locked up for. Oh, and his AG is a fucking crook. Impeach. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) November 21, 2018 Read more... More about Donald Trump, Stephen King, Ivanka Trump, Culture, and Politics

Stephen Colbert has slammed Trump's "pardons," and they're not all the Thanksgiving kind. After lightly roasting the president's antics during the annual turkey pardon, The Late Show host turned his attention to the bigger "pardon" on everyone's minds. Colbert pointed out that the CIA is preparing a report that is expected to connect the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.  But the president jumped in first on Tuesday, issuing a White House statement "standing with Saudi Arabia." "Apparently you can kill a Washington Post journalist and the president don't give a damn," said Colbert on Tuesday night.

Trump's relationship with the truth is different. Most politicians lie. Or do they? Even if we could find some isolated example of a politician who was scrupulously honest – former President Jimmy Carter, perhaps – the question is how to think about the rest of them. And if most politicians lie, then why are some Americans so hard on President Donald Trump? According to The Washington Post, Trump has told 6,420 lies so far in his presidency. In the seven weeks leading up to the midterms, his rate increased to 30 per day. That’s a lot, but isn’t this a difference in degree and not a difference in kind with other politicians? From my perspective as a philosopher who studies truth and belief, it doesn’t seem so. And even if most politicians lie, that doesn’t make all lying equal. Yet the difference in Trump’s prevarication seems to be found not in the quantity or enormity of his lies, but in the way that Trump uses his lies in service to a proto-autho...

US President Donald Trump is a genius at making decisions - but only after the fact. He's the real-life Rambo who would have run into a school to confront a heavily armed shooter. ("I really believe I'd run in there even if I didn't have a weapon," he said after the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.) He's the omniscient terrorism analyst who would have gotten "Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than" the Navy Seals did, and even claims that "I pointed him out in my book just BEFORE the attack on the World Trade Centre". He's the modern-day John Muir who would have raked the forests of California to prevent forest fires.

John Dean was horrified at the latest Trump revelations. The new report that President Donald Trump considered prosecuting Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey, only to be warned by White House counsel Don McGahn that he could face impeachment, has once again stunned political commentators.One observer who was particularly aghast was John Dean, the former White House counsel to Richard Nixon, who told CNN on no uncertain terms that this would be a red line too extreme even for Tricky Dick to cross."If I had to channel a little of Richard Nixon, I think he'd tell this President he's going too far," said Dean. "This is the sort of stuff of a banana republic. This is what an autocrat does. Political scientists have developed standards by looking at what they do all over the world, and Trump is checking all those boxes. And it's rather frightening and kind of startling because he was told about this during the campaign when he started mentioning these sort of things, b...

Trump has made it clear he doesn't care who murdered Jamal Khashoggi. Ben Rhodes, a former foreign policy adviser to President Barack Obama, made a disturbing point Tuesday on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" with host Nicolle Wallace about President Donald Trump's statement brushing off the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's apparent assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.In the statement, Trump said that the facts of the matter are essentially unknowable and urged everyone to move on. He added, too, that the Saudi regime has said that Khashoggi was the "enemy of the people.""What's truly chilling about that is that it's the same language Donald Trump uses to describe American journalists," Rhodes explained. "So he just described a journalist who was literally chopped into pieces in a third country in the same way as he describes people who sit in the briefing room and ask him questions."He continued: "I think the second point, Nicolle, is what's really chilling...
