Mila Kunis set up a monthly donation in Mike Pence’s name to Planned Parenthood

Actress Mila Kunis has her own sly way of protesting the vehemently anti-choice Vice President Mike Pence: setting up an anonymous monthly donation to the major reproductive healthcare provider Planned Parenthood in his name. During an interview on TBS’s CONAN with host Conan O’Brian, she shared a juicy tidbit about a small form of resistance she practices every week. She explained, in part:

I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do.

And so, as a reminder that there are women in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of reoccurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.

Love it.

Donald Trump is not ‘untrustworthy’ or ‘inconsistent.’ Donald Trump is a liar, and incompetent

The efforts to tiptoe around the plain evidence that Donald Trump is a racist, lying, possibly dementia-riddled sack of shit continue.

President Trump campaigned as one of the world’s greatest dealmakers, but after nine months of struggling to broker agreements, lawmakers in both parties increasingly consider him an untrustworthy, chronically inconsistent and easily distracted negotiator.

Because he is. He just is—there is no consider involved here. He is transparently unaware of the details of even his own would-be priorities. He lies extensively and about everything. He contradicts his own prior statements with such regularity that he genuinely appears to have no ability to distinguish between reality and fiction. There was a point at which we could charitably have considered him a mere incompetent; that point has long past.

The president’s propensity to create diversions and follow tangents has kept him from focusing on his legislative agenda and forced lawmakers who might

Polls: Media offer fake news, but news from Trump seen as phoniest of all

With conclusions that should surprise no one, a new poll reports that most people in the country admit to being duped at one time or another by a false report or conspiracy theory masquerading as news. But the majority of Americans in this poll said the biggest source of fake news is none other than the administration of Donald J. Trump.

A survey of more than 1,000 Americans by the education company StudySoup asked respondents to judge news outlets on whether they were considered trustworthy. The study also asked respondents to evaluate whether they had been taken in by false news stories and whether they believed a list of claims that included several false stories. There was an expected partisan divide on what was judged believable and what was not trusted.

In this project, we set out to reveal which news outlets Americans trust most, and which they consign to the

Trump aide bashes immigrants and the Statue of Liberty. Hot take: rude reporters are to blame

White House adviser Stephen Miller briefed the media on Wednesday about Donald Trump’s plans to limit legal immigration. In answering questions, Miller deployed a white supremacist talking point against the poem on the Statue of Liberty and referred to one reporter in a way that sounded suspiciously close to an anti-Semitic epithet. In response to this, Washington Post media reporter Paul Farhi asks the important questions:

Reporters are supposed to push their sources for answers. But how far can they push before “aggressive reporting” starts to look like badgering, grandstanding or just plain rude?

At issue: Glenn Thrush and Jim Acosta’s aggressive questioning of White House adviser Stephen Miller:

Thrush first challenged Miller about a White House-backed legislative proposal that would slash the number of legal immigrants. He repeatedly asked Miller for statistics to support Miller’s contention that low-skilled immigrant workers displace American workers and depress wages.
