Politico published a story that looked like it had to be a clickbait ad for skincare, "Is America Ready for a Frank Discussion About Skincare?" but turned out to be a real story that sounded as vapid as any ad hyping beauty products.The Sunday skincare story by Joanna Weiss reveals how Cosmopolitan magazine hooked the Democrat presidential candidates into answering the all-important skincare question.



Even though this year’s presidential election is still nine months away and Democrats aren’t even close to nominating a candidate, some liberals are already terrified that President Trump and the members of his administration will make any transition as difficult as possible. Those changes are reminiscent of the rumor that Democrat President Bill Clinton’s staff removed all the “w” keys from the computer keyboards when they had to make way for GOP President George W. Bush in the early days of 2001.



Politico is deeply concerned about impeachment. Not that it could drag on for weeks or even months. No, their worry is that the almost inevitable acquittal of President Donald Trump will lead him to taking a "victory lap" as he's itching to plot a "flashy series finale for impeachment." 

 



Whenever liberals in the media approvingly cite conservative leaders, like Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater, it’s to somehow contrast them as suddenly reasonable and sensible. Unlike the modern Republican Party. So it’ not a shock that Politico is looking to Goldwater as a model for how the Senate GOP should respond to Donald Trump: In other words, tell him to resign.



Tuesday evening, Politico published a story revealing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) “mischaracterized,” a text message exchange sent between Rudy Giuliani and his former business associate, Lev Parnas. However, this revelation didn’t make the cut on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN or MSNBC on Tuesday all the way into Wednesday morning.



The Government Accountability Office (GAO) said Jan. 16 that President Donald Trump broke the law when he withheld aid from Ukraine. The union for that “independent, nonpartisan” agency naturally supports Democrats. Just don’t expect the media to tell you about it.



In what is not really a surprise, Politico is looking at the trade deal with China through the lens of impeachment. According to Anita Kumar on Wednesday, the trade deal, which she labeled as "modest," is merely a distraction from impeachment. In fact, that is exactly what the title of her article says, "Trump hypes modest China deal, distracting from impeachment."



Ah a Democratic Presidential debate. The only contest in which the usage of the phrase “pillow fight” generates excitement. No, really. GLAAD, the speech Stasi for all things LGBT, blasted Politico for using the phrase in reference to a less-than-brutal debate exchange between South Bend, Indiana Mayor Buttigieg (who is gay) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (who isn’t an Indian), claiming it “offended people.”



Thursday’s Democratic debate hosted by PBS and Politico was a rather dull affair, but one question regarding climate change from Politico chief political correspondent Tim Alberta stood out as particularly nutty by any reasonable standard. In back-to-back questions, he presses candidates on their plans to pick up and relocate the entire population of certain cities.



One measure of the rapidly declining fortunes of the House impeachment inquiry is the sharply contrasting tune of two Politico articles about a New Jersey Congresswoman (D-Naturally) regarding that issue. Exactly two months ago it was a very different political world as Michael Kruse went full Drama Queen describing the choice of freshman Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill to support an impeachment inquiry despite a pledge to her constituents to concentrate on the issues. 



A sure sign that the impeachment of President Trump is in trouble, as reflected by declining support for it by the public according to polls, is the sheer desperation displayed by Politico legal affairs columnist Renato Mariotti. No one at Politico has been a bigger cheerleader for impeachment than Mariotti and the recent decline in public interest in this seems to be sending poor Renato over the edge. 



Swing voters are not reacting well to the Democrat impeachment effort. A Politico article written by Gabby Orr reveals a distinct lack of support for impeachment by voters in focus groups. The survey was conducted by a pro-Trump super PAC called America First Action, but they screened out all voters who were committed to voting either for or against Trump in 2020: "participants were asked if they thought Trump should be impeached. Not a single person raised a hand..."
