Rick Scott’s (R) administration banned the use of the terms “climate change” and “global warming.” Earlier this month, reports said that officials in the Scott administration ordered Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administrators not to use the terms in documents or meetings because they asserted that the climate science behind global warming was not a “true fact.” More

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, who was our guest last week for a Salon Talks segment in New York, recently got some blowback from his own constituents for deciding to support President Trump’s nominee as CIA director, Mike Pompeo. Without revisiting that decision, Whitehouse made clear that he sees Trump’s Cabinet as rife with the kinds of conflicts of interest and potential corruption he documents in his new book “Captured: The Corporate Infiltration of American Democracy” (written with Melanie Wachtell Stinnett).
When Trump was first elected, Whitehouse told me, some Democrats felt optimistic “that a lot of that campaign rhetoric might actually yield a president who wanted to govern in a bipartisan way, who was genuinely interested in draining the swamp of special interests and who was willing to be a disruptive presence in a helpful and cleansing way.”
It hasn’t worked out that way, Whitehouse said: “We have seen a real swamp Cabinet if there ever was one.”
Trump mocked Hillary Clinton for giving private speeches to Goldman Sachs, and then appointed Steve Mnuchin, a longtime executive at that notorious investment bank as his Treasury secretary.

It’s an established fact: President Donald Trump is a shameless, relentless liar. He rarely makes it through a public appearance without uttering deliberate, outrageous falsehoods. Lies defined his campaign, creating a cottage industry of journalists listing and even cataloguing his lies.

On Wednesday President Donald Trump revoked federal guidelines that empowered public school students to use the bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity. This draws increased national attention to the case of Gavin Grimm, a transgender high school student in Gloucester County, Virginia who is suing his local school board for not allowing him to use the boys’ bathroom.
Grimm, who was born female but identifies as male, has had his birth certificate revised to reflect his true gender and has received hormone treatments and surgery to help his transition.
