What Really Matters

Are we Making America Great Again? Yesterday was a day for noisy but ultimately meaningless gestures from Republicans. The GOP controlled House passed their bill to destroy Obamacare, but that bill won’t even get a vote in the Senate. In the end, the only actual result from the House vote might be making it easier […]

Late Night British Political Humor

Ever wonder what the rest of the world thinks about us electing Donald Trump as our president? John Cleese spills the beans, hilariously.

Pre-existing Conditions

Jimmy Kimmel emotionally gives a personal example of why it is so important that health insurance companies not be allowed to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions. Kimmel recently had a baby son, who was born with a heart defect. As Kimmel points out, before the ACA went into effect, his son would likely have been […]

Teapot Dome?

© Tom Tomorrow This comic may seem a little far fetched, but is it really any crazier than what Trump is proposing with the wall? After all, the communists built a wall around West Berlin, which only had to be 96 miles long, and it included frequent guard towers, anti-vehicle trenches, and a second wall […]

Signs of the Times

Here are a few photos from the March for Science protests over the weekend. Good signs!

The Noise Machine

© Ruben Bolling I don’t know if it is intentional or just a byproduct of his need for constant attention, but Donald Trump has been extremely successful at manipulating the 24 hour news cycle. Not only dominating the day’s conversation, but making us forget about everything from yesterday and before. Most frighteningly, hiding (with the […]

How to Replace Obamacare

© Ed Stein I still think Donald Trump could have a big win by replacing Obamacare with single-payer health insurance, but I’d be happy if the GOP would just make a bunch of improvements to the ACA and call it Trumpcare.

Wrong-Way Trump

© Jack Ohman Last week, Donald Trump claimed that he ordered an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan to act as a deterrent to North Korea. In fact, he told Fox News “We’re sending an armada”. Naturally, that was a lie. The aircraft carrier in question was actually sailing in the opposite direction. […]

The Other Shoo Drops

Last year, CEO Roger Ailes was dismissed from Fox News because of sexual harassment, and the Murdoch family pledged to clean up the network’s culture. Yesterday, they finally got rid of Bill O’Reilly. My only question is, what took them so long (obvious answer, money)? If you have any doubts about O’Reilly deserving to be […]

Sinking Feelings

Two new polls from Gallup and Pew Research are bad news not just for Donald Trump, but for Republicans in general. The number of Americans who say that Trump keeps his promises has plummeted from 62% in February to 45% (a drop of 17 points). “Can bring about changes this country needs” went from 53% […]

Wag the Dog?

People are noticing that every time a new connection between Donald Trump and Russia is exposed (which seems to happen almost every day) a country in Asia gets bombed. The latest revelations are that Paul Manafort (Trump’s former campaign manager) has retroactively registered as a foreign agent, Trump advisor Carter Page was talking to Russia […]

Make Impeachment Great Again

Professor Allan Lichtman, who gained notoriety by predicting that Donald Trump would win the presidential election, is now predicting that Trump will be impeached. Often, political predictions are not worth much, but Lichtman did manage to correctly predict the last eight presidential elections. Lichtman even says that Trump could even be impeached by a Republican […]

Winners!

© Jim Morin Donald Trump promised that we would win so much we would get tired of winning. Well, I’m not tired yet, but Trump has been the indirect cause of several wins. The 2017 Pulitzer prizes were announced on Monday, and there were multiple awards for negative coverage of Trump, including cartoonist Jim Morin […]

Sexism ‘R’ Us

Sexism is alive and well in the US. First we elect a president who publicly brags about grabbing women by the pussy. I mean, seriously? However, I suppose Trump voters could possibly excuse this by claiming that they voted for him for other reasons. But consider this. Recently, Bill O’Reilly and Fox News paid out […]

Distractions

© Tom Tomorrow This comic is from last week. And this week, Trump managed to get everyone to completely forget about everything: all his failures, the internal feuds inside his administration, the fact that the Senate stopped being a “deliberative body”, and even the latest news about his increasingly worrisome connections with Russia. He did […]
