Why Democrats and Republicans love to fight about immigration

Today 13:36 GMT

In the end, no progress will have been made, and perhaps that's the point: The topic of immigration serves both parties better in a fight than in a deal.

Populist uprisings among both Democrats and Republicans will only intensify as political institutions continue to produce futility and failure. Shutdowns contribute to an erosion of confidence in political institutions, which gives more power to the extremes of both parties and encourages the abandonment of the political process by those in the center.

Is a recession coming for Trump You wish.

Today 13:36 GMT

If Democrats want to win in two years, telling voters how bad the Trump economy is when it might be better than the one Obama left them sounds like losing message.

These are all things Democrats and NeverEverTrumpers everywhere should keep in mind as they envision a nasty economic downturn driving President Trump from the White House. Sure, a headline like "Stock market on pace for worst December since Great Depression" provides a wonderful opportunity for a bit of cathartic dunking on Trump.

Congressional Democrats intend in coming weeks to ask the Trump Organization for records surrounding the firm’s talks with developers in the Dominican Republic as part of a close examination of the overseas deals being negotiated by President Trump’s adult sons, Don Jr. and Eric, a senior lawmaker told ABC News.

‘SNL' is tougher on Trump than past presidents, but NBC won’t let up anytime soon, experts say

Tuesday 02:25 GMT

McCall says Trump is an easy target and mocking him fits the “political objectives of the ‘SNL’ hierarchy,” so viewers shouldn’t expect the NBC program to tone it down anytime soon since it's not illegal to lampoon the president.

The Washington Post recently examined at how past presidents have handled being parodied by “SNL,” which noted that Ford didn’t appreciate being portrayed as a klutz but “embraced the shtick” for the most part – which is the strategy of most presidents.

Why Trump's attacks on SNL are seriously dangerous

Tuesday 02:24 GMT

On Sunday, after SNL ran an It's a Wonderful Life parody about the Trump administration, the president woke up and began complaining on Twitter.

That's why Trump targets SNL now: If you're not a fan, maybe you want to shrug and wait for a more noble cause to come along. The administration went after Jim Acosta a few weeks ago not just because White House officials dislike the CNN correspondent, but because they knew Acosta's occasional grandstanding can make other journalists uncomfortable — the administration wanted to see if it could divide the press corps into journalists more and less deserving of First Amendment protections.

Varney said top Democrats expected to make a run at President Trump all have in common their wish to expand the social welfare state and hand out "free money" or entitlements to "entice" voters.

He said that if such candidates take leading roles in the Democrats' 2020 contests, President Donald Trump and the Republicans will face "23 months of political attacks on the president and 'vote for me, vote for free money' tax enticement." "[They] want to make America more like Europe," he said.

Some activists said the Texan was winning over voters and activists in key battleground states long before he became a serious threat to any likely Democratic opponents.
