Donald Trump promised that we would win so much we would get tired of winning. Well, I’m not tired yet, but Trump has been the indirect cause of several wins. The 2017 Pulitzer prizes were announced on Monday, and there were multiple awards for negative coverage of Trump, including cartoonist Jim Morin of the Miami Herald, whose winning entries included the two cartoons above.
Also winning was David Fahrenthold of the Washington Post for his coverage of Trump’s lies about giving to charities, the New York Times for their coverage of Russia’s efforts to project power abroad, and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan for her coverage of the presidential campaign.
Also published on Medium.
David Fahrenthold is the reason I got a Washington Post subscription.
That horrible man is still calling her “crooked Hillary” while she is doing so much good for the world, he destroying it. He now wants to cut long distance train service. Trains are nearly twice as efficient as planes and certainly twice as fun. Probably if you had a ticket, no one would drag you off a train unless you were misbehaving. Have we turned into a police state?
Ebdoug, we are becoming a cheap skate state, where the serfs serve at the kings leisure. If the middle class who voted for the great pumpkin think they are going to arrive fours later unscathed, then they are sadly delusional because the cuts proposed by the administration will have us all partying like its 1929. Bread lines here we come.
I’m tired of the press who are so easily distracted by his latest “shiny thing” that they don’t keep pounding on the important stuff. We need to investigate Russian ties, we need to see his taxes, we need a Congress who will stop wetting the bed in glee to finally be able to stick it to the country, and have them actually do something about him and real problems.
And Mitch McConnell needs to go. I’m not sure where, but someplace far far away. We need a really bigly uuuge McConnell scandal. But given the attitude of the public, I’m not sure what scandal would unseat him. If they aren’t outraged about the current White House occupant, then it will take a lot to get them outraged about anything that Mitchy boy does.
McConnell is the least liked SEnator in Congress as was one of my Great Grandfather’s the least likes Supreme Court Justice in Washington.
How McConnell keeps getting elected is beyond me. I know someone in Louisville, but I don’t know his political leaning.
What Congress has to keep concentrated on is getting Trump out of Washington. Pence at least won’t be spending 24 million in travel expenses in 2 1/2 months. Pence won’t be appointing a Federal Judge who tried to Protect Trump from the University Scandal/scam
If McConnell is there it’s the status quo. He runs the show. So nothing will get done as long as he doesn’t want it to. Pence might not spend as much as Trump but I doubt he will do anything to harm Trump even if he’s deposed.
Did I read right that Gorsuch refused meetings with the female members of Congress who requested meetings? That alone, should have disqualified him from being one of the supremes.
Wildwood, it was Pence who wouldn’t meet alone with females, because he feels that doesn’t have enough self-control to avoid adultery otherwise.
I guess that’s better than the examples set by Trump, O’Reilley, Ailes and countless other Conservatives, but that is a pretty low bar….
BTN, I went and looked it up. He refused to meet with Duckworth and Matso, both female senators and Dems.
