In an article in Vanity Fair, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, proclaimed, “I’m the guy who would take a bullet for the president.”
Anyone who has ever read anything I’ve ever written knows how much I don’t care for Donald Trump or anything Trump-related, including his golf courses, his clothing, his children, his immigration policy, his wife, his real estate and his white-man lace front. I don’t even like ketchup on the table if I’m eating a…

The Volkswagen-driving nerds who promised to remove the virus from your computer and have it back by Friday are also skilled in the art of unmoisturized tattling: Newly uncovered documents show how Best Buy’s Geek Squad has been working undercover in the FBI’s Department of Dry Snitching for a decade at the very least.

“Memo-gate” might be one of dumbest scandals coming out of this administration, which, let’s face it, has never read on grade level.

Let me pose a hypothetical scenario: You’re burying your loved one—a process that’s known to be stressful and overwhelming—and you find out that, on the very same premises, the owners are cashing in on human body parts.
Kwanzaa, like black America, was birthed in struggle and chaos, then bathed in blood. It was born in the freedom movement, against the backdrop of the Watts rebellion, the rise of the Black Panther Party, the FBI’s COINTELPRO and the assassination of Malcolm X (el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz).
You would have missed it if you weren’t listening carefully. On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, the second segment of the night was a profile of Christian Picciolini, a “reformed” skinhead-slash-racist-slash-dude-who-used-to-beat-black-people-up-on-the-reg; a man Dylann Roof recently called a “race traitor.”
President Donald TrumPutin’s approval rating is hovering around the same temperature at which water freezes; meanwhile, the investigation by MTV’s Nev and Max into Russia’s catfishing of America’s voting process is heating up (meaning that Nev and Max are doing some serious Googling), and this president of…

Buried in the government documents surrounding the death of President John F.
