'We Are Living in a National Emergency': MSNBC's Presidential Historian Reveals Why Trump Has No Historical Precedent

He called on Republican leadership to "step up." MSNBC's presidential historian Michael Beschloss spoke to Rachel Maddow Monday and offered an ominous diagnosis of the state of the country after President Donald Trump sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over American intelligence agencies at a press conference earlier in the day. "We are living in a national emergency," Beschloss said. "We may not have known it 24 hours ago. We do now. I have been studying and writing about presidents since I was 20 years old. I never thought I would live to say this: This is a president who demonstrated he deserves suspicion as acting on behalf of another country other than his own."

'The Steele Dossier Absolutely Rings True to Me': Retired Lt. Colonel Explains Why Putin Is Lying About Russian Spying

"What is it going to take for Trump supporters to accept the fact, the apparent fact that Trump is indebted to Vladimir Putin?" The Steele Dossier is once again making headlines after President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The reason is simple: Trump's fondness for and defense of Putin, despite the reams of evidence that he is an adversary of the United States and that he interfered in the 2016 election, was on display, raising the question of why. The so-called "Steel Dossier." compiled by former British intelligent agent Christopher Steele, provides an explanation: Trump and his associates had an extensive relationship with Russia for years prior to the election, during which time the president was cultivated as a political asset, and Russian officials obtained compromising material on him.

Fervent Trump Supporter Cancels CNN Appearance Because 'He's Not Going to Defend' Putin Summit

Michael Anton became well-known as a Trump supporter during the campaign for penning an essay in defense of electing Trump called "The Flight 93 Election." He became a national security spokesman at the White House under Trump before leaving earlier this year.

Fox News' Tucker Carlson Deflects from Trump's Pandering to Putin with a Racist Attack on Mexican-Americans

The host has frequently made disparaging comments about immigration. In a rhetorical move demonstrating the pernicious forces that led to President Donald Trump's election, Fox News' Tucker Carlson spouted an out-of-blue racist broadside against Mexican-Americans on Monday while downplaying Russia's election interference. Carlson was responding to Trump's support for Russian leader Vladimir Putin at a summit earlier in the day, where the American president discounted the intelligence community's assessment that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 campaign.

Hillary Clinton Blasts Trump's Treacherous Meeting with Putin in a 4-Word Tweet

The former presidential candidate has used Twitter to troll Trump's presidency. With just a four-word tweet, Hillary Clinton made clear Monday what she thought of President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?"

Here's How Working Americans Get Scammed As Politicians Try to Run the World

It's time to rethink the American national security state. So effectively has the Beltway establishment captured the concept of national security that, for most of us, it automatically conjures up images of terrorist groups, cyber warriors, or "rogue states." To ward off such foes, the United States maintains a historically unprecedented constellation of military bases abroad and, since 9/11, has waged wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and elsewhere that have gobbled up nearly $4.8 trillion. The 2018 Pentagon budget already totals $647 billion -- four times what China, second in global military spending, shells out and more than the next 12 countries combined, seven of them American allies. For good measure, Donald Trump has added an additional $200 billion to projected defense expenditures through 2019.

American Exceptionalism Is a Dangerous Myth

Instead of disrespecting the achievements of other countries, the U.S. needs to learn from them. Yesterday in Moscow, France's national soccer team won the 2018 World Cup Final, defeating Croatia 4-2 and inspiring huge celebrations in the streets of Paris and other French cities. Soccer fans all over the world are singing "La Marseillaise," eating croissants and saying, "Oui, vive la France!" Yet in the U.S., hating soccer is a tradition among far-right Republicans like Glenn Beck and Ann Coulter (who, during the 2014 World Cup, equated growing interest in soccer in the U.S. with "the nation's moral decay").

'Constitutionally Incapable': Trump Officials Reportedly Say 'His Brain Can't Process' the Facts of Russian Election Int

Even the White House's attempt to spin the summit in a positive way makes the president look terrible. President Donald Trump is facing denunciations across the board after his supplicatory meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and even the spin coming from White House officials puts Trump in a terrible light. Officials speaking off the record with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan tried to cast Trump's refusal to condemn Russian aggression or stand up to Putin's interference in the 2016 election as incompetence, rather than malicious and treacherous alignment with the foreign authoritarian.

Susan Collins and Trump Are Telling the Exact Same Lie About Roe v. Wade

Americans support abortion rights -- it's just a fact. Popular vote loser Donald Trump is very bad at not letting all the cats out of the bag. Take his bizarre and generally useless interviewwith Piers Morgan this weekend. In this midst of his reflections on the FANTASTIC Queen Elizabeth and discovery that "United Kingdom," "Great Britain," and "England" are not all the same thing, Trump once again said the quiet part out loud and confirmed that his pick of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court is all about abortion. Even though he knows he's not supposed to say it.

C-SPAN Caller Admits Russia Elected Trump -- And Thanks Them for Helping to 'Stop Hillary Clinton'

"I'll try not to sound too awful, but, I want to thank the Russians for interfering with our election to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president," the woman identified as "Mary Lou" said.
