Next month, Donald Trump will host a meeting with some of the country’s most radical anti-LGBT and anti-choice leaders in New York City. Trump, who has already recruited a variety of far-right activists and conspiracy theorists to his campaign, is set to take part in a convening organized by Ben Carson, a former rival turned campaign surrogate, aimed at bringing reluctant Religious Right leaders to his side. According to a copy of the invitation to the event obtained by the National Review, Trump will be joined by Religious Right activists including Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Penny... MORE >

Donald Trump once admitted to posing as his own spokesman, “John Miller,” but is now denying it. We hope Ben Carson is right and that Trump is seriously considering Sarah Palin to be his running mate. Roger Stone hopes President Trump will “turn off” CNN’s “FCC license.” Arizona taxpayers “have already fronted more than $41 million in [a] class-action suit against” Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was recently held in civil contempt, and may need to contribute “$13 million more toward the legal costs in the...

With Ted Cruz announcing yesterday that Carly Fiorina will be his running mate in his increasingly difficult path to the GOP presidential nomination, we thought it might be time for Donald Trump to start thinking about who he wants as his vice president. Here are just a few options: 1) Chris Christie Following his victory in five states on Tuesday, Trump suggested that he would consider naming New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was standing by his side and trying his best not to look like a hostage, as his running mate. Trump would have to overlook the Fort Lee highway lane closure scandal... MORE >

Ben Carson, taking a break from acting as Donald Trump’s worst surrogate, has hit the media circuit this week to denounce the Treasury Department’s decision to put Harriet Tubman on the front of the $20 bill while keeping President Andrew Jackson on the back. Carson, however, didn’t appear to be upset that the Treasury Department didn’t pick his mother to appear on the currency, an idea he floated at a Republican presidential debate. (Carson wasn’t the only candidate who couldn’t name a woman outside of his immediate family to appear on a bill.)... MORE >

Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson appeared on the “Gun Owners News Hour” with Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt last weekend, where he repeated the thesis of his most recent book , which is that racism in America does not exist, but rather is a myth perpetuated by people like President Obama who was raised to hate white people and is incapable of feeling love. Peterson told Pratt that once Americans “dispel that notion that racism exists,” liberals will lose power because “their father the Devil” feeds on such lies. The two then, for some... MORE >

Throughout Ben Carson’s doomed presidential campaign, it became increasingly clear that a number of the candidate’s advisers were using the campaign’s fundraising in order to substantially enrich themselves, leading TPM’s Josh Marshall to describe the whole campaign as one big “direct mail scam.” In an interview with Detroit talk radio host Frank Beckmann yesterday, Carson admitted that there were “a number of problems” with the management of his campaign and that some of his advisers “began to take advantage” of the money his...
