Body Slam Politics

Today there is an election in Montana to fill the congressional seat vacated by Ryan Zinke when he became Donald Trump’s Secretary of the Interior. Montana only has one congressperson, and the state (and thus that district) went for Trump by 20 percentage points. So the Republican candidate, Greg Gianforte, has been expected to win. […]

Today in Trump

Donald Trump’s international trip got pushed out of the news today by yet another list of bad news for his administration. Why settle for a scandal a day when you can have many? Russian agents bought ads on Facebook and other social media during the election to spread damaging stories about Hillary Clinton and influence […]

Saturday Night Humor

This weekend was the final episode of Saturday Night Live of the current TV season, and the Weekend Update was pretty hilarious!

Leaker in Chief

© Adam Zyglis When I saw this comic, I mistakenly read the third word as “Orifice” instead of “Office”. Donald Trump is still complaining bitterly about all the leaks in his administration, and yet he seems to be as guilty as anyone.

Impeachable Offenses?

© Jen Sorensen At this point, Donald Trump has screwed up so badly that it will make it next to impossible for the Republicans to pass any of their more radical agenda like repealing the ACA, privatizing Medicare, further widening the gap between wealthy and poor by rewriting the tax code, or destroying the environment.

Projections

Washington DC artist Robin Bell projected animated anti-Trump messages on the Trump International Hotel in DC, including “emoluments welcome here” and “pay Trump bribes here”. The messages protest the fact that Trump gains financially from the hotel, which makes money from foreign governments. The emoluments clause of the constitution prohibits government officials from making money […]

Purge

© Kevin Siers Now that Donald Trump fired the FBI director he (until recently) effusively praised, he has to hire someone new. How will he restore trust? The problem is that it is vitally important that people know that the FBI will uphold the rule of law, and has not become just another partisan hack […]

Fork It

© Marshall Ramsey It seems like Republican politicians care more about the Republican Party than about the Republic.

Getting Attention

© Joel Pett As Donald Trump lurches from one fiasco to another, one has to wonder if his staunchest supporters will ever wake up. And that includes congressional Republicans, most of whom keep either defending Trump or at the very least are keeping their mouths shut.

Dumb and Dumber

Some Republicans are vainly trying to defend Donald Trump’s firing of James Comey, but none of their explanations even pass the smell test. Here are the most common arguments: Trump has the power to fire the FBI director. Not if he did it to obstruct justice. Especially not if he lied, and had other people […]

Give Me Death!

© Jen Sorensen I love the phrase “Trickle Down Healthcare”. Can we make this a meme? Cartoonist Jen Sorensen comments on her own comic: The AHCA is so monstrously cruel any honest description sounds hyperbolic. Not only will it literally kill people, but it’ll kill entrepreneurship too, as workers stay locked in their jobs for […]

Sociopaths

© Tom Tomorrow After all, Trump did claim that he could “shoot someone on a crowded street and not lose any voters“. And it isn’t like Trump or his relatives care what they do or say. The latest example of their corruption and nepotism is Nicole Kushner Meyer, who is Jared Kushner’s sister. Meyer was […]

Weekend Update on the AHCA

The AHCA is yet another triumph of politics over policy, but maybe we can laugh about it: To show how out of touch with reality some Republicans are, Congressman Raul Labrador (R-ID) defended his vote on the GOP health care bill by declaring “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.” Watch it:

Conservative Response to Jimmy Kimmel

This blog recently posted about Jimmy Kimmel and the near-death of his newborn son. Kimmel made the point that nobody should be put in the position of having to decide if they can afford to save their child, and scolds Trump and the Republicans for being heartless. Well, conservative Jonah Goldberg decided to respond to […]

Birds of a Feather?

© Ruben Bolling Donald Trump seems to be having a love affair with brutal, autocratic dictators. It isn’t just his lavish praise of Turkey’s Recep Erdogan, who rigged an election to dismantle democracy in his country, or The Philippines’ Rodrigo Duterte, who used death squads to execute thousands of his own citizens without trial (and […]
