Quote of the Day: John Boehner is Orange


From James Joyner, responding to complaints that photos in the Republican “Pledge To America” pamphlet are exclusively of white people:

This isn’t strictly true. First off, John Boehner is prominently featured. He’s orange.

Plus it turns out that if you look closely there’s a black woman in one of the photos. Diversity!

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.
