The sharks circle Joe Biden

The sharks circle Joe Biden

George Clooney leads a growing list of people who have called on Joe Biden not to stand again in 2024.

Will this shift the White House thinking on this thorny matter? Or will it take former Democratic presidents to weigh in before anything changes.

Last night House Democrats seemed resigned to the status quo after their caucus behind closed doors.

Biden is currently meeting Keir Starmer and others to celebrate NATOs birthday. NATO a full six years younger than Joe. And how is Trump responding to the idea Biden might walk? He's about to...

Has the Supreme Court given Trump the power to be a dictator?

Has the Supreme Court given Trump the power to be a dictator?

The majority decision by America's Supreme Court to grant Trump almost complete immunity from actions taken whilst in office make him - in the words of one dissenting justice, "a king above the law".

What are the implications of this ruling on Trump's future trials?

On his behaviour if he wins a second term?

And on America's trust in the highest court in the land?

Later, the Democrats find themselves, like their presidential candidate at times, frozen, in the aftermath of that TV debate. Will anyone close to Biden dare to...

Biden's TV debate disaster - will he now be replaced?

Biden's TV debate disaster - will he now be replaced?

This was a TV debate unlike any other. Excruciating doesn’t even cover it.

Whilst Trump confidently lied his way through the facts, Biden barely reached the end of his sentences without meandering off into a far distant phrase.

It was painful to watch and it will raise serious questions now amongst senior Democrats. Can they, must they replace Joe Biden as their presidential candidate?

And if so who will be the first top figure to say it out loud?

We take you through the most painful moments of the night an...

Biden freezes, Trump rambles: Who's winning the cognitive war?

Biden freezes, Trump rambles: Who's winning the cognitive war?

Biden's appearances at the G7 photo call and the Democrat fundraiser have raised eyebrows because of video circulating that appears to show him freezing at certain moments.

The White House says don't fall for the clips- they're edited videos or 'cheap fakes'.

What's going on? Why are Dems so defensive? And why is Trump mixing up his own doctor's name when he talks about his superior cognitive abilities.

It's all shaping up to be a bizarre first TV debate 9 days from now - and we may - may see one more candidate on...

America Q & A: Hunter Biden, Deep Fakes, and best campaign moments.

America Q & A: Hunter Biden, Deep Fakes, and best campaign moments.

Your questions answered - and we have one for you. Help us spot the audio deepfake.

How is Donald Trump planning his revenge?

How is Donald Trump planning his revenge?

Donald Trump is wondering aloud what prison would be like.

He probably doesn't have to -it's extremely unlikely that the sentence eventually handed down to him in July will be custodial. But his MAGA henchmen are already talking about what happens if he wins in November, and what their revenge on the prosecutors who tried him will be.

Has belief in the rule of law amongst MAGA voters broken down? And what is this doing to America?

And whilst one trial is behind us, another has just kicked off.

Donald Trump: guilty on all counts

Donald Trump: guilty on all counts

Trump is found guilty in New York.

Just before 5pm on Thursday New York time the airwaves started cracking with news of an imminent verdict. Twenty minutes later the jury in a Manhattan court returned. And pronounced Donald Trump guilty on each one of the 34 counts.

Donald Trump can still run for president. So in one respect this may change nothing.

But let’s not let this moment of history escape - a former and possible future president who is now a convicted felon. What happens to his freedom, his vote and his te...

The Trump trial is over. Will he be found guilty?

The Trump trial is over. Will he be found guilty?

The Trump first trial, over hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels, is over. The real question is, as the jury deliberate - will he be found guilty?

All this, while the Biden campaign sweats over stuttering polling data and a president who is apparently obstinate and determined to run the campaign his way. How can they turn the tide?

Bleach blonde butch body - American politics goes full Jerry Springer

Bleach blonde butch body - American politics goes full Jerry Springer

American legislators in the House are hurling personal insults at each other - meanwhile Biden and Trump have committed to debate each other on TV and Trump is using an attack ad - a riff off of a Tom Petty song- to accuse Biden of “free falling“.

What has happened to rational discourse in America?

"He should go to jail!" Michael Cohen tells Donald Trump's trial

"He should go to jail!" Michael Cohen tells Donald Trump's trial

If the adult porn director Stormy Daniels was the star witness of the Trump trial last week, this week it got even hotter. Trump's former fixer, friend and lawyer took the stand.

Except now, Michael Cohen is no friend of Trump. What's more, he's a convicted felon, a liar and a perjurer. Will his presence as a key witness help or hinder the prosecution?And does it matter that he's told a jury he'd like to see Trump jailed?

Later, why are 21 foreign born sailors still stuck on the cargo ship that collapsed the Baltimore...
