BREAKING: How did the latest discussion start?

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2018

We may disagree with Drum:
How did the latest discussion start—the discussion about Donald J. Trump's war on birthright citizenship?

For Kevin Drum's take, click here. Frustrated assessment by Drum: "It started with a reporter who thought he was being clever."

"It started with a reporter who asked a question Trump staffers had told him to ask."

Jonathan Swan is very bright. To us, his aspect seemed a bit unusual when he popped that question.

  2. Oh god. This Drum guy is such a disgusting hack. And the magazine that used to be one of the best, is a shithole now. Yeah, you're right, Bob: bad times, very bad. Here: http://exiledonline.com/russia-blog-7-when-mother-jones-was-investigated-for-spreading-kremlin-disinformation/

  3. There's one thing the entire Daily Howler community wants to know. What does it sound like when the Miles Davis Quintet performs Rodgers and Hart's "It Never Entered My Mind"?
