One of the darkest refrains of the Trump presidency have been the crowds at his rallies chanting "Lock her up" at the mention of Hillary Clinton's name.

The idea that an American president would threaten to imprison a political rival smacks of authoritarian tactics that have no place in a democracy.

These days, the chants seem rather ironic being that Donald Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives for trying to extort the president of Ukraine. If Trump is removed from office, he may face legal consequences for his actions which could mean jail time.

2016 Presidential Hopefuls Get A Black Metal Makeover

A satanic rebranding of America’s next potential president.

Lincoln Chafee has never looked cooler.


Sure, Shephard Fairey’s 2008 Obama “Hope” logo was iconic—but was it metal? Recently Fast Co.Design decided that the 2016 race, already somewhat of a snoozer, lacked any real aesthetic oomph. In a stroke of brilliance, they commissioned venerated graphics designer Christophe Szpajdel to rebrand 11 presidential candidate’s logos, ranging from Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders, with black metal makeovers. According to Fast Co, “Szpadjel has spent the past 40 years distilling the complex socio-political platforms of over 7,000 black metal bands like Fistula, Arcturus, Old Man's Child, and Moonspell down to single, indelible wordmarks—albeit ones that usually contain a bloody Pentagram or an upside down cross somewhere in the design.” The results are hilarious (can you imagine Marco Rubio getting down to some Emperor?) and a fun spin on a race that already feels like it’s been going on for ages.

Hillary Clinton Action Figure Inflames Internet Nutjob Brigade

It seems the toy is just as polarizing as Hillary herself.

Jason Feinberg had nothing but the best of intentions when he created the Hillary Clinton doll that took the internet by storm this week. Feinberg owns a toy and novelty manufacturing company, FCTRY in Brooklyn, that in the past created a popular Barack Obama action figure as well as The Mustachifier: a pacifier that makes babies look like little hipster gentlemen. The former high school teacher-cum-entrepreneur wanted to produce something that captured the spirit of the times. As Feinberg mentioned to GOOD, he saw that there was, “the chance to create something that becomes a symbol for a historic movement. It sounds like a stretch but we were really inspired by what Shepard Fairey did with the HOPE poster in 2008, and our dream would be to have the Hillary Action Figure become a popular symbol for her.” What Feinberg didn’t expect was to become the target of the internet’s ire, especially its frothing sexist, right wing, anti-Semitic fringe element.

Anthony Weiner's Wife Should Run for His Seat

Huma Abedin has the expertise, the connections, and the moral high ground to succeed.

When I saw the news today that Anthony Weiner plans to resign, I immediately thought of the photo above. It was posted yesterday to my favorite new Tumblr blog, What Hillary Whispered, with the caption, "Have you thought about running for his seat?"

Is Hillary Clinton Serving Illegally?

Just as we have (maybe) gotten over the idea that Obama was born in another country, there is a new attempt to oust a member of the administration...
