For the next issue of @NYMag, I profiled Andrew Giuliani, who is trying to run for governor of New York.
Nobody knows why he’s doing that.

Very good detailed breakdown by @MarshallCohen of the nonsense-filled The FBI Did It conspiracy theory about the Capitol riot, which went from a bad right-wing website to Tucker Carlson to Republican members of Congress. cnn.com/2021/06/17/pol…

Nearly a dozen Fox News guests presented as concerned parents or educators who oppose the teaching of so-called “critical race theory” in schools also have day jobs as Republican strategists, conservative think-tankers, or right-wing media personalities mediamatters.org/fox-news/foxs-…


At the top, this is a story about Dem hypocrisy—advocating for a $15 minimum wage while paying their interns less.

Proud to announce I'm officially joining the roster of regular @washingtonpost opinions columnists, a dream I have had for a long time.
I'll be writing on international affairs, culture, and human rights-- and Texas-- for @PostOpinions.

I regret to inform you that Trump’s big election lie is living strong in Pennsylvania’s GOP primaries. From me. thebulwark.com/pennsylvanias-…



Republicans keep claiming their bans on critical race theory are in keeping with Martin Luther King Jr’s vision. They couldn’t be more wrong.

Putin has a crucial weapon as he takes on Biden: The Republican Party.
This article examines years of polling. It shows how Trump turned the GOP against NATO and made it friendlier to Russia.
