For a sickening moment during last night's debate, I thought Donald Trump was going to give Hillary Clinton a hard time, score some badly needed points.
And maybe even win the debate, after losing the two others.
For he started out looking reasonably under control, he wasn't sniffling or snuffling, and he was talking . . . → Read More: Montreal Simon: The Night Hillary Clinton Demolished Donald Trump

Guest Post by Chris Henderson Seemingly every day, someone tells me that they’re worried Donald Trump will win the election. Aside from the natural anxiety that comes with a possibility potentially catastrophic (yet still remote), I really don’t believe Trump… Continue Reading →

A Canadian woman’s #NotOkay call on women to share their sexual assault stories on Twitter has partly fueled U.S. Republican leaders’ unfolding rebellion against their party’s nominee for president.

We already knew that Donald Trump was a bloated demagogue who acts like a spoiled and cruel child, and likes to hurt and humiliate others.We knew he's a bully, a bigot, a crass misogynist, a serial liar, a rabid climate change denier, a friend of dictators, and the last person we need anywhere near . . . → Read More: Montreal Simon: Donald Trump’s Monstrous Night of Moral Depravity

As we all know Bernie Sanders was treated unfairly by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party establishment.
And he has every right to be bitter.
But with the shadow of the fascist Trump looming over America.

I knew Donald Trump was growing increasingly desperate, like Benito Mussolini himself.
Before he expired from a bad case of lead poisoning, and was hung up to dry.

But who knew that dirty old man is now so afraid of being humiliated by Hillary Clinton.

Got an interesting complaint from a frequent reader: he disagrees with our Morning Line assessment of the Republican candidate in the coming Presidential election in the United States.
