      The debate showed just how scary a commander in chief Donald Trump would be

      America just got its first real look at Commander in Chief Donald Trump. It wasn’t a pretty sight. The signal moment came late in the debate. Hillary Clinton accused Trump of being “very dismissive” of American alliances, such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), an alliance that obligates the United States to defend all other...

      I reviewed every Republican primary debate. Here are Trump’s 7 key moves.

      The conventional wisdom about Donald Trump is that, on the debate stage and off, he’s unpredictable — so unpredictable that Martin O’Malley, who challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, told the Atlantic’s James Fallows that Trump is like “a monkey with a machine gun.” But look back to the 11 primary debates...

      Donald Trump lies. All the time.

      And stunningly few people seem to care. When Donald Trump went to Flint, Michigan, the pastor at the Baptist church where he spoke had to defend him from hecklers in the audience: “He is a guest of my church, and you will respect him.” The next day, Trump got on the phone with Fox News and lied. He said that the pastor ambushed him — while the...

      The Good Place, NBC’s new comedy about how to get into heaven, takes big risks. That’s rare, and awesome.

      The witty series unleashes a wicked Kristen Bell on Ted Danson’s heaven. “Wait, how did you sum up that show in one sentence again?” my sister asked, squinting at the TV screen. I, being a professional watcher of television and all, had The Good Place’s logline ready: “Kristen Bell accidentally ends up in heaven and...

      Trump wants to fire generals who disagree with him. That’ll mean firing a lot of generals.

      Trump wants to fire generals who disagree with him. That’ll mean firing a lot of generals.

      Donald Trump says he’ll listen to the nation’s generals about how to fight ISIS. He won’t like what they have to say. Earlier this month, Trump said that one of his first acts as president would be to give his generals “30 days to submit a plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS.” He seems to think the reason ISIS stands is...

      A conversation with Jill Stein: what the Green Party candidate believes

      We asked Stein about her positions on NATO, gun control, and “QE for student debt.” Why does Jill Stein want to be president? Usually, when reporters interview the long-shot Green Party presidential candidate, they ask about her low poll numbers, or about whether she’ll spoil the election for Hillary Clinton, and about how she plans...
