Trump's War on Losers: The Early Years

"In the late 80s and early 90s, Spy magazine carried out a lonely—and hilarious—war against the preposterous real-estate lordling it famously identified as “short-fingered vulgarian Donald Trump.” Here are some highlights."

This Vanity Fair article includes links to Spy's features on Trump and a Jerry Seinfeld bonus.

due to single sentence about abortion.

"The paragraph calls on countries to ensure their health systems provide quality comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care services, including 'safe abortion where such services are permitted by national law'”.

Explain to me again how there's no double standard.

I just heard Pete Williams tell Chuck Todd on MTP that the media shouldn't refer to the the special counsel's "inquiries" about Trump's possible obstruction of justice as an "investigation" because that word implies that the counsel has already ascertained evidence of criminality.

Gee. MSNBC extended no such courtesies and cautions concerning "inquiries" into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server for non-classified State Department communication. As a matter of fact, any attempts by the campaign to characterize the inquiry as anything other than an investigation were met with derision by both Comey and the media.
