Thom Hartmann, Greg Palast and Rob Kall have been sounding the alarm about a dangerous president and his craven, amoral political party.

A South Florida college will host a Trump supporter at an online forum on voting-by-mail. But the school, in progressive Broward County, did not include a Democratic Party representative on the panel. This makes no sense as the issue is controversial because President Trump makes baseless charges against mail-in voting, which has worked well for years. The new Florida resident has no shame.
