Our president is on Twitter again today, this time telling progressive Democratic congresswomen “who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” He then tried to bury it by retweeting a flurry of old stuff in hopes it would scroll off the bottom of the page, but it was way too late for that.

Honestly, though, I barely even care about this kind of crap from Trump anymore. His repulsive bigotry has been obvious for a long time, and it’s not as if anyone can pretend not to see it. What I do continue to care about is whether anyone from the Republican Party will say anything about this. Anything at all. Even a mild little rap on the knuckles.

Anyone?

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
