Trump is reportedly dealing with self-doubt over his support of the GOP health-care bill  

In public, President Trump is having a great time pretending to drive big rigs and wearing pins that read "I Heart Trucks," but behind the scenes, he is seriously regretting throwing his support behind House Speaker Paul Ryan's health-care plan, The New York Times reports. Four people close to the president told The Times he now wishes he had pushed through tax cuts first, which would have pleased Republicans, rather than focus on the deeply unpopular health-care overhaul. Stephen Bannon, Trum

Seth Meyers Warns Donald Trump: Stop Plagiarizing 'Saturday Night Live' Bits  

For Seth Meyers, President Donald Trump has finally gone too far. On Thursday’s “Late Night,” the host joked that he didn’t actually mind when Trump “talked dirty with Billy Bush” or told Russia to “hack” his 2016 Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton’s emails. What he did take serious issue with, however, was Trump “stealing bits” from the “Weekend Update” segment on “Saturday Night Live.” Dear Pr

Obsessed with abortion, Texas Senate okays doctors lying to parents about babies with disabilities  

Everything's bigger, better and slightly more bizarre in Texas—including their pro-life attempts. Last year, Texas lawmakers tried to force women who have miscarriages and abortions to bury their fetal tissue. And now the Texas Senate has passed a bill that prevents parents from suing medical providers in the event that their babies are born with disabilities, even when the provider knew about the condition in advance but failed to disclose this information to the parents.

Patton Oswalt performs Mike Huckabee's Twitter jokes for Jimmy Kimmel  

Somebody, at some point, must have told former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee that he was funny. Maybe they were right, Jimmy Kimmel said on Thursday's Kimmel Live. Huckabee writes daily topical jokes on Twitter, "but like a lot of great comedy voices, not everyone 'gets it,'" Kimmel said. "Some people have been posting tweets criticizing his joke-writing," drawing this retort from Huckabee: I Tweet for my amusement and your amazement.

Trevor Noah To GOP: 'Premature Legislation Doesn't Make Anyone Happy'  

House Speaker Paul Ryan, President Donald Trump and the rest of the GOP want to repeal and replace Obamacare. But on “The Daily Show” Thursday night, Trevor Noah urged them to take their time. He even offered some friendly advice. “Hey Republicans, I know you’re excited that you’re finally in power, but slow down,” Noah said. “Health care is a long-term commitment, not a one-night stand.

Brookings: Changes in Trumpcare won't save the 24 million losing insurance in the next decade  

The current version of Trumpcare—the one negotiated last week by popular vote loser Donald Trump with conservatives to woo votes for passage—hasn't yet been scored by the Congressional Budget Office, even though it's slated for a vote Thursday. The thing is, though, nothing in those changes is likely to make the bottom line any better for people who are going to lost health insurance under Trumpcare. Any changes made to try to make tax credits better will be offset by the sped-up cuts to Med...

Why I'll take economic growth over 'happiness' any day  

President Trump has promised he'll boost economic growth. "Tremendous" growth, to be specific. In that way — and maybe no other — he's like every other politician. Here's what politicians don't do: They don't say Americans are plenty rich. They don't say faster economic growth is unimportant. They don't say, let's just focus on redirecting the wealth we already have to the 99 percent, or the 90 percent, or the bottom half. Even inequality-obsessed Bernie Sanders touted a plan to accelerate ...

Abbreviated pundit round-up: 'A smell of treason in the air'; regretful Trump voters? Not so many  

E.J. Dionne Jr. at The Washington Post writes—Gorsuch's big fat lie: With a shrewdly calculated innocence, Judge Neil Gorsuch told a big fat lie at his confirmation hearing on Tuesday. Because it was a lie everyone expected, nobody called it that. "There's no such thing as a Republican judge or a Democratic judge," Gorsuch said. Gorsuch, the amiable veteran of many Republican campaigns, is well-placed to know how serious a fib that was. As Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) noted, P...

Obama: 'America is stronger because of the Affordable Care Act'  

March 23 is the seventh anniversary of Obamacare and it's the day House Republicans are trying to vote to repeal Obamacare and throw tens of millions of people off of health insurance. Former President Barack Obama marked that seventh anniversary of the Affordable Care Act with a statement that doesn't directly take aim at the vicious Republican plan, but celebrates many of the ways Obamacare is so very different from what Republicans seek to pass—and subtly calls for a continuing fight ...

President Trump defended a number of his baseless claims in a head-turning interview with Time magazine published Thursday morning. When pushed by reporter Michael Scherer about sharing conspiracies that he couldn't verify as true, Trump became defensive: "I know you are going to write a bad article because you always do," he said. After touting his ability to have predicted Brexit and reiterating his false claim that three million people voted illegally in the election, Trump explained, "I inh

Grace and Frankie's third season, which drops March 24 on Netflix, starts slow. The lacerating crisis which structured its first two years — the discovery that four decades of marriage were a lie — is gone. While that doesn't make the series any less fun to watch, it does mean that the show's biggest challenge mirrors its protagonists': Its crisis is over, and it needs a new place to go to avoid stagnation. Season three opens with Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) having mostly r...

American voters disapprove 56 - 17 percent, with 26 percent undecided, of the Republican health care plan to replace Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Support among Republicans is a lackluster 41 - 24 percent. If their U.S. Senator or member of Con

Apparently, even selling it on that point isn't enough to keep him from failing. Following the big meeting between popular vote loser Donald Trump and the maniacs in the Freedom Caucus, it looks like the vote won't happen today, although that's not yet confirmed.

The GOP health-care bill might incentivize insurers to cover 'aromatherapy but not chemotherapy'  

The Affordable Care Act requires insurers to cover a number of baseline "essential benefits," including hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, and mental health treatments. But on the brink of the health-care vote in the House, a group of Republicans are aiming to repeal ObamaCare's minimum requirements. As the argument goes, Americans shouldn't have to pay for benefits they aren't using; a 60-year-old-man, for example, shouldn't have to pay for maternity care. But as The New York Times r

The first storyline goes something like this: Conservatives share the same goals as everyone else — they want a beautifully flourishing society — but they just see it differently...
