WATCH: Donald Trump’s Top GOP Chump Insults

For its latest video, American Bridge sought inspiration from Donald Trump’s love of verbally thrashing his fellow GOP candidates. They’re “weak” and they’re “losers,” he says. They’re “lightweights,” “a bunch of clowns” — they definitely “don’t have it.”

Frontrunner Donald Trump just doesn’t even see them as rivals at this point. He’s been driving the GOP primary dialogue and forcing the Party into some uncomfortable self reflection — particularly with respect to his anti-immigrant rhetoric that’s resonating so well with the Republican base.

Second-place Ben Carson and whomever else is further down there (Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and others) — they’re all running hard to the right, trying to keep up with Trump. Rick Perry and Lindsey Graham have tried to take down Trump, but they’ve fallen by the wayside — the Donald took each of them out with a flick of the wrist. Now, Jeb Bush is having a go — punching […]

Trump Trouble On Immigration For GOP Senate Candidates

Shock: Donald Trump’s alienating and offensive rhetoric is alienating and offending…and tarring an entire political party in the process. Trump’s anti-immigrant demagoguery is quickly cooling the Latino community to the GOP — and it’s putting their efforts in key Senate seats at risk.

In Nevada, Colorado, and Florida, and others, Talking Points Memo’s Tierney Sneed reports, “some of the [GOP] candidates in those races have been expected to weigh in on Trump’s antics, which involve labeling Mexicans ‘rapists’ and calling for the end of birth citizenship.”

And they haven’t been great about handling the pressure. In Nevada, for example, Joe Heck said, “I think [changing birthright citizenship] needs to be part of the discussion,” when asked about Trump and others’ proposals to end 14th Amendment-guaranteed citizenship.

Other GOP candidates are in the early stages of Trump Trouble, too. Wisconsin’s Ron “Ron Don” Johnson and North Carolina’s Richard Burr are both […]

Scott Walker’s Jobs Agency STILL Giving Tax Credits To Outsourcing Company

In a shock to no one, today brought yet another controversy for Scott Walker’s hugely ineffective, taxpayer dollar-draining jobs agency, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).

Just a month ago, the WEDC was in the news for being mired in criminal scrutiny surrounding shady loans. Within that same week emerged a troubling report of yet another bad WEDC loan to an individual whom a federal judge had identified as having “all the earmarks of fraud,” according to the Associated Press.

And now, this: Eaton Corporation, a company that shipped 163 jobs to Mexico in 2013 and 93 jobs there in 2015 is still receiving WEDC tax credits — and now Eaton’s outsourcing 83 more jobs from its Pewaukee plant.

WATCH: Jeb! Leads The GOP Rebrand

Thirsty for controversy, Jeb Bush just can’t get enough.

Taking it upon himself to lead the GOP rebrand, Jeb’s insatiable thirst for controversy and proclivity for accidental revelations of his right-wing values continue to mount up — and it’s resetting decades of GOP outreach, not to mention dooming any shot the party has in 2016.

The RNC establishment can’t be too happy with Jeb right now — but the GOP base just can’t get enough of the extreme rhetoric.

Jeb Continues His War On Women, Doesn’t Think Planned Parenthood Does “Women’s Health Issues”

Excitedly enlisting in the GOP’s second war against women, Jeb Bush has abandoned his stance of “not sure we need half a billion dollars for women’s health issues,” to take on an even more extreme and hurtful one. Today, Jeb Bush told a townhall that he doesn’t think “Planned Parenthood ought to get a penny… because they’re not actually doing women’s health issues.”

Here’s a helpful reminder that in fact, Planned Parenthood is the leader in “doing women’s health issues.”

According to Planned Parenthood’s 2013-2014 annual report:

Health centers provided 487,029 breast exams
87,988 women whose cancer was detected early or whose abnormalities were identified
Over 1.4 million emergency contraception kits provided
516,000 unintended pregnancies averted by Planned Planned parenthood contraceptive services
Over 704,000 HIV tests conducted
Over 169,000 STIs diagnosed

WATCH: Senator Burr And The Donald: The Burr-st Of Friends

Donald Trump has a not-so-secret admirer: Richard Burr. A resounding endorsement of Donald Trump came from the vulnerable Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina — who apparently thinks that publicly endorsing Donald Trump’s xenophobic demagoguery is his best bet at re-election. That’s right, he’s gone all in for his Burr-st friend and publicly confirmed that he’ll support Trump.

“Donald Trump has done a tremendous job,” Burr said. “I think Donald Trump has brought a level of passion to running for office that I’m delighted to see.”
“A level of passion” — well, that’s one way of putting it, Senator…
