Trump Lied About His Reasons for Deporting Dreamers. Will the Supreme Court Let Him Get Away It?

“Home is here!” chanted about 1,000 people on the steps of the Supreme Court.  

They were there, huddled in a chilly November rain, to support the roughly 700,000 ‘Dreamers’ — people brought to the United States as children who are temporarily protected from deportation by the government program known as DACA ( “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”).

Judging from the proceedings inside, however, “here” won’t be home much longer.

MSNBC’s Malcolm Nance: The Russians Compromised Trump as ‘Early as 1977’

MSNBC analyst Malcom Nance, long one of the network’s loudest voices when it comes to pushing Russiagate conspiracies, claimed Tuesday morning that President Donald Trump is a Russian asset who was compromised “as early as 1977” via his first marriage to Czech-born Ivana Trump.

Nance appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, in a segment first spotted by Mediaite, to hawk his latest Trump-centric Russia book and was immediately congratulated by host Willie Geist for being “outfront before most people” were aware of the Kremlin’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

Nance, a retired naval intelligence operator, went on to boast that he saw early in Trump’s presidential campaign that the U.S. was under attack by a “wide-ranging information warfare attack” by Russia that was designed to make Trump president, adding that he saw it “about a year before anyone would really understand that.”

What is the all-time best dive bar jukebox song? “Hands down, “Blackened” by Metallica. That song inspired me to buy an electric guitar in hopes of playing it someday. I’m still pretty incredibly awful.”

The former First Lady and presidential candidate was appearing on BBC radio in Britain to promote a new book she has written with her daughter, Chelsea, about ‘gutsy’ women.

When NYC’s Racial Tensions Exploded: Michael Benjamin Washington Excels in ‘Fires in the Mirror’

Courtesy Joan Marcus

There is one word for Michael Benjamin Washington’s stunning performance in Fires in the Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn and Other Identities (opening tonight at Signature Theatre, to December 15): virtuosic. 

He inhabits every character in Anna Deavere Smith’s Drama Desk-award winning play, originally performed in 1992—an oral history distilled from interviews with over 50 members of the Jewish and African American communities affected in various ways by the Crown Heights Riots of 1991.

The riots followed the death of Gavin Cato, 7, who was knocked down and killed by Yosef Lifsh, a Hasidic Jew; his sister Angela was seriously injured. Riots and fights broke out, and then Hasidic scholar Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed to death by a black teenager, Lemrick Nelson.

Donald Trump Junior’s Series of Unfortunate Book Tour Events

The president’s large adult son thought a book would be an easy roll out to a political career, but it turns out that even for a Trump, the road to literary greatness is fraught. 

One of the great contradictions in American life is the politician-authored book, for it is neither written by nor (often) read by that politician. It largely serves as a book tour delivery mechanism—a way for said politician to do the media circuit, the morning shows, the late-night shows and everything in between. But Junior isn’t a politician. In fact, he’s never held any elected office. But not having anything substantive to say has never prevented anyone from writing a book ever (I know this from firsthand experience). 

Junior obviously wants to be the heir to his father’s virulent fan base. A book was the next logical step down that lamentable road. He needed something to sell besides his father, his last name, and his bedbug-infested hotels, and so a book was born. After all, everyone else in Trumpworld has done a book, from dancing king Sean Spicer to presidential footnote Anthony Scaramucci to reality television villain Omarosa Manigault Newman
