A group of Michigan voters has sued Donald Trump and his reelection campaign, asserting the president's legal challenges to the 2020 election violated the rights of Black voters. In a lawsuit filed in D.C. federal court Friday, the group alleged the Trump campaign is attempting mass voter suppression — particularly among Black voters — by pressuring election officials into not certifying the election results in their state. "Repeating false ...

ATLANTA - Officials in Georgia are looking at a deadline for Wednesday to complete a hand tally of the presidential race in the state.

Beyond irresponsible: Republicans must put Americans and reality ahead of fealty to Trump

What if Trumps Tries to Pardon Himself?
In the aftermath of his electoral defeat, we are confronted with the possibility President Donald Trump might pardon himself. No other president, not even Richard Nixon, has dared to do so. But Trump may want to extricate himself from the web of criminal accusations surrounding him. A self-pardon would be an assault on the rule of law and the principle that no person, including the president, is above the law. The public outcry would be enormous. ...

What to do when your president has a temper tantrum
There are several reasons presidents cry. Anyone who has ever had one and been up half the night with it – or all the night with it, night after night – can tell you this. Sometimes presidents cry because they’re tired, sometimes they cry because they need their nappy changed, sometimes they cry because they don’t want you to leave them, sometimes they cry because they have a gnawing pain in their tummy, and sometimes they cry because they’re jus ...

A Child Psychiatrist's Perspective on Trump's Behavior
Why would any parent bring their kid to a child psychiatrist? Well, I’m a child psychiatrist and the most common reason parents bring their kids to see me in my clinical practice is because they are worried about certain behaviors and want help and advice in evaluating their child.

The end of American democracy as we know it - if Donald Trump Wins Election
The legal barrage by President Donald Trump’s campaign against election results in battleground states is highly unlikely to succeed.

Lawsuits filed in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona — all states that voted for Democratic candidate Joe Biden — ask judges to prevent those states from certifying their results. That has rai ...

Trump, for once, listened when aides told him to lay low
America finally got something it essentially hasn’t had since 2015 — a week without Donald Trump’s voice. No rally. No sparring with reporters. No unwieldy Fox News interviews.

And there was even one speech late Friday about the progress of a coronavirus vaccine, announced on two-hours’ notice. But even then, the president mostly read from a script befo ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Control of the Senate likely won’t be decided until a January runoff in Georgia, even after Democrat Joe Biden won the White House on Saturday. That post-election cliff-hanger will determine the balance of power in Washington, as neither party appears to have a lock on a Senate majority right now. So far, the tally for the next Senate is 48 Republicans and 48 Democrats after Tuesday’s election. Two seats in Georgia are hea ...
