Better Trump than Trump

Alec Baldwin on SNL is doing a better job of being Donald Trump than Trump himself does. If you don’t believe me, watch this video, also from SNL, that has actual clips of Trump from his declaration of the fake national emergency. I think we elected the wrong TV personality! Baldwin hit the nail on […]

Q&A

Last summer, somebody asked on Quora “Why do many British people not like Donald Trump“. They got back 43 answers. Here’s one of them: A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, […]

What’s in a name?

An 11-year-old boy named Joshua Trump was invited by Melania Trump (no relation) to the State of the Union speech Tuesday night. He was invited because he had to drop out of school in Maryland after he was bullied about his last name. I applaud Melania for inviting him, even if it was (likely) done […]

F-ing Impossible

The blog Margaret and Helen has been quiet since before Thanksgiving. But Helen Philpot finally broke the silence with an epic rant, titled: Do you have any idea how hard it is not to use the F-word when talking about Donald Trump? It’s damn near f-ing impossible. #FactsMatter #HowToTrainYourDragon Philpot gloriously lambasts Twitter, Roger Stone […]

Pardon Me!

Kate McKinnon (as Wilbur Ross) and Steve Martin (as Roger Stone!) are both absolutely hilarious in last night’s SNL cold open:

Former Presidents?

Donald Trump claimed that “all” the former presidents knew that they should have built a border wall, and that “Some of them have told me that we should have done it.” But all the living ex-presidents have denied even talking to Trump about the wall. So which presidents is Trump talking about? Here’s a good […]

Let Helen cheer you up

Are you a Democrat who still feels like you didn’t get the blue tsunami you craved? Let Helen Philpot cheer you up. Yeah, I know, there were quite a few of us who dreamed of a US Senate without Ted Cruz. But other than that, this really was a blue wave by any measure. Heck, […]

How to take a joke

Last week, SNL regular Pete Davidson made a joke at the expense of Republican Dan Crenshaw, who is a veteran of Afghanistan who lost one of his eyes in service to our country. Here’s the video, in case you didn’t see it: This weekend, Crenshaw, who is now a newly elected Congressman from Texas, showed […]

How to Vote

Cute video. If you pause it at 1:18 you can see him voting for Lily Tomlin over Lucille Ball, Bob Hope, and Carol Burnett for the important post of Minister of Comic Relief. Don’t blink or you’ll miss it. And be sure to vote.

Could our politics get any crazier?

Sure they could! © Brian McFadden There’s only a few weeks before the election. People (including me) have noted that when Donald Trump accuses someone of something, it is probably true that he himself is guilty of the same thing (or worse). Will evidence surface that Trump was actually born in Kenya? Will we find […]

The Likely End

You have scientists on both sides of it. My uncle was a great professor at MIT for many years, Dr. John Trump. And I didn’t talk to him about this particular subject, but I have a natural instinct for science, and I will say that you have scientists on both sides of the picture. — […]

Retired Bipartisanship

Bipartisanship may be dead in Congress, but it might still be clinging on to life among some retired political figures. Remember the video that surfaced from John McCain’s funeral, showing George W Bush passing something to Michelle Obama? It was a sweet video, but it is even better than that. Michelle Obama appeared on the […]
