Quote of the Day: Grandstanding Watch


From Chris Hayes, responding to the mindless blathering of Rep. Peter King (R–Hysteristan) about Obama’s response to the underwear bomber:

It sounds like you’re saying they’ve been insufficiently grandstanding on the issue.

“I don’t know why you’d say that,” King said. And you know what? He probably really doesn’t.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
