Congenital Falsehoods

“I like the Saudis; they are very nice. I make a lot of money with them. They buy all sorts of my stuff — all kinds of toys from Trump. They pay me millions and hundreds of millions.” — Donald Trump, quoted by CNN at a July 2015 campaign rally. “For the record, I have […]

Lie like you just don’t care

I know none of this is a surprise, but given that Trump’s campaign rallies have gotten so old and tired that even Fox News isn’t broadcasting them live anymore, this seems particularly germane. Yesterday, Donald Trump defended his decision to proceed with a political rally in Pennsylvania as hurricane Michael devastated the Florida panhandle and […]

Immigration Hypocrisy

Everyone has been focused on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, so of course the Republicans have taken this distraction as an opportunity to sneak in some things they wanted. Probably the most hypocritical example is a proposed new regulation that affects legal immigrants. The new regulation will deny “green cards” (residency) to legal immigrants if […]

No Buddies Care

Even Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies say that he lied under oath when he claimed that he never drank to the point of forgetting what he was doing. They swear that they saw him do just that on multiple occasions. The point is that this isn’t about what Kavanaugh did when he was younger. This is […]

Republicans don’t know the meaning of “stop”

Taking the tip from Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump, Republicans have started attacking Christine Blasey Ford. For example, they are posting photographs that they claim proves that Ford is a Democratic party operative. Except that the photographs they are posting of Ford with Bill Clinton and George Soros aren’t actually Ford. In fact, they don’t […]

Moral Compass?

If there was any doubt that conservatives — especially social conservatives who used to champion “respectable social behavior” — have completely lost any and all moral authority, you just have to look at the current situation with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Social conservatives have been pretending to hold the moral high ground, opposing supposed […]

When is a tax not a tax?

When it is called a tariff. Republicans claim to be against tax increases. They attack anyone who they believe wants to raise taxes. And yet, they have ignored Trump’s tax increases. What increases? Donald Trump has, by executive fiat, levied taxes of up to 50% on goods being imported into the US, with the most […]

FEMA Fumbles

You can’t make this kind of stuff up. Can FEMA look any more incompetent? With Hurricane Florence causing historically massive flooding on the east coast FEMA decided it was a good time to introduce a “Presidential alert” system, which would allow Donald Trump to send an emergency message to your mobile phone, which you cannot […]

Justice?

What will happen to Brett Kavanaugh? If the Republicans ram the Supreme Court nomination of Kavanaugh down America’s throat, they are going to rile up Democrats (especially women) and probably lose additional seats during the midterms. But if they don’t, they will piss off their die-hard base, who might sit out the midterms in response. […]

Rumor Control

Sometimes the news just writes itself. On Friday, FEMA tweeted this message: We have created a rumor control page for Hurricane #Florence that will be updated regularly. During disasters, it’s critical to avoid spreading false information. Always check with official sources before sharing. https://t.co/PAjGQZJ1Nt pic.twitter.com/z4L0r1YjAT — FEMA (@fema) September 12, 2018 It was retweeted by […]

History of Anonymous Op-Eds

© Ruben Bolling Does anyone feel better, knowing that there are members of the Trump administration who are actively working to keep us safe from the worst impulses of Donald Trump? Of course, we can’t thank them if they remain anonymous.

All The President’s Men (Tal Defects)

© Mike Keefe And right now, Trump’s major mental defect is that he is simply making shit up about Puerto Rico. Trump claims that only between 6 and 18 people died because of Hurricane Maria, which officially killed 2975 people. Even Republicans are rolling their eyes at such bald-faced lies. Not only is Trump completely […]

Supreme Kangaroo Court

This would be funny if it were not so true: © Tom Tomorrow I truly wish something like this would happen: © Jen Sorensen Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh will start a war to overturn Roe v. Wade. In fact, in anticipation of his confirmation, the war has already begun. Kavanaugh may claim that he believes […]

Congenital Lying

Of course Donald Trump is attacking Bob Woodward’s book. What else would we expect? In fact, the strangest thing about this is that the book announcement caught Trump off guard initially (even though he knew about the book and that it would be negative). But after a couple of days, Trump eventually did what he […]

The Best People? Hah!

When Donald Trump was running for president, he promised that he would “surround myself only with the best and most serious people”. Hilariously, he even said that they would be “top-of-the-line professionals.” But let’s look at the people that Trump with whom has actually surrounded himself. And I’m not going to count porn stars and […]
