Disrespect

[from Margaret and Helen] Margaret, last week six football players knelt during the national anthem. This week it was 200. And just like Colin Kaepernick, they weren’t making a statement about the flag. I swear this president is so stupid, he couldn’t find his ass if both hands were in his back pockets. Lord help […]

The Nuclear Option

© Ruben Bolling Leave it to America. In the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, when the news came out that the shooter had used “bump-stock” devices to turn semi-automatic rifles into effectively automatic weapons (like assault weapons), how did America respond? By buying more bump-stocks. Sales of these devices has spiked, and in some […]

Mother of all Storms!

© Ruben Bolling Batten down the hatches! Run for cover! The denialists won’t be denied! Raining and flooding will just cause them to flood the airwaves. Not to mention sticking their heads in the ground, which will probably be full of water. Will they drown in their own pronouncements? Or will they weather the storm?

Bought and Paid For Journalism

Never heard of Sinclair Broadcast Group? Well you should know them, because they very well could be filling your head with far-right-wing propaganda. And if Donald Trump has his way, it will get far worse. Believe me.

Record Breaking Loser

Donald Trump has broken a presidential record. He has now achieved the lowest approval rating in his first year in office of any president, ever, and he even has five months left in his first year! The first year is supposed to be the honeymoon, so Trump can expect to go downhill from here. So […]

Total Flop

This has to be the flip-flop of the year. Is Donald Trump really going to hold the federal budget hostage just because he is a terrible negotiator?

Hidden Messages

Last week, the Presidential Committee on the Arts and the Humanities disbanded themselves in protest of Donald Trump, but they did something interesting in their letter of resignation. The first letter of each paragraph spelled out R-E-S-I-S-T. Not to be outdone, this week the State Department science envoy resigned, and the first letters of his […]

Making Fun of Nazis

The New York Times has an excellent article on how to deal with white supremacists, racists, and Nazis. They call it “humorous subversion” but it really is just making fun of them. Here’s one example: For decades, Wunsiedel, a German town near the Czech border, has struggled with a parade of unwanted visitors. It was […]

Four to go. Or should I say “Five to go”?

Sexism at Google?

The Economist just wrote a wonderful “detailed, ringing rebuttal” to the former Google employee who circulated a sexist message internally, but which leaked out and caused a big kerfuffle (and got him fired). Even if you are tired of that story, this is definitely worth a read. It is both serious, while also dripping with […]

Captains Deserting a Sinking Ship?

Donald Trump has managed to do something that no other Republican president in recent history has done. He has alienated the captains of industry. The presidential Strategic and Policy Forum decided to disband themselves. This group included CEOs from GM, JP Morgan Chase, Wal-Mart, Blackstone, PepsiCo, IBM, Ernst & Young, and GE (among others). The […]

I’ve looked at war from both sides now…

© Jack Ohman It only took one day for Donald Trump to go back to to blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville. He also did something worse in a way. About the white supremacist who drove his car into a crowd of protesters (killing one and putting other in the hospital), Trump said […]

Trump: Pants on Fire

Donald Trump makes statements that earn him a “Pants on Fire” rating from PolitiFact 52 times more often than Barack Obama did while he was president. To put this in perspective, that means that Trump tells as many obvious, egregious, ridiculous lies in one week as Obama did in a whole year of his presidency. […]

Threat Assessment

© Tom Tomorrow TT admits that he initially finished this strip a week ago, but rewrote the final panel before publishing it because of Charlottesville. He didn’t want to wait until next week’s comic to make a point about neo-nazis because, well, we will probably have forgotten all about Charlottesville by then because something even […]

No Escape

© David Horsey I try to ignore him. Try to forget about him. Then he goes and does something like threatening to unleash nuclear fire and fury. Ignoring him just seems to make him more desperate for attention. I fear this will not end well.
