Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do?

© Ruben Bolling Remember, it isn’t a crime when the president does it, or someone does it for him. I have a theory about this, I call it the “good/bad syndrome”. It is the idea that there are two types of people: good guys and bad guys. It doesn’t matter what anyone does. If they […]

Sessions Perjured Himself, Twice

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is supposed to be our country’s top law enforcer, but evidence appeared on Friday that Sessions perjured himself twice. The first time we already knew about. It was when Sessions was being confirmed, when under questioning Sessions said “I did not have communications with the Russians.” After confirmation, we found out […]

Not Made In America

Donald Trump decided to celebrate this week as “Made in America” week, saying “Remember the old days, you used to have ‘Made in the USA’. We’re going to put that brand on our products because it means it’s the best.” Then he held an event at the White House where he highlighted products made in […]

Suspension of Disbelief

© Tom Tomorrow Why do Donald Trump supporters believe anything he says? How can they believe such a flimsy story about meeting with the Russians? Even Trump jokes about his constant habit of lying. On Monday at an event at the White House, Trump said: We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through […]

Whataboutism!

© Clay Bennett Team Trump spent this weekend engaging in a propaganda technique called “Whataboutism” that is similar to a technique often used by young children. Whataboutism is used to deflect attention from bad behavior by claiming that other people are at fault, like “All the other kids do it!” or “It wasn’t my fault!”. […]

Better Health Care?

© Tom Tomorrow The Republicans keep claiming that the Obamacare exchanges are collapsing. I guess they think that if they repeat it often enough, it will be true. There are just TWO problems with this. As I and many others have pointed out, if the health insurance exchanges are failing, then the Republicans should fix […]

Smoking Guns and Treason

Trump and his campaign originally (repeatedly) denied that the Russians interfered in our presidential election, but under mounting evidence of Russian hacking, they eventually admitted that the Russians did interfere, but that there was no collusion between the Russians and Trump or his campaign. Well, that was a lie too. It turns out that last […]

Game Over

There’s something that has been keeping me up at night thinking. Let me walk you through it. Donald Trump has been claiming over and over that reports of Russian interference in the presidential election are “fake news”. He, and other members of his staff have also been claiming that, even if the Russians did interfere, […]

Depp?

On Thursday, Johnny Depp put his foot in it at a film screening in the UK. It started with him making jokes about Donald Trump, who is rather unpopular in Europe. But he took one joke too far, asking “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” referring to John Wilkes Booth and […]

The Cabinet of Honesty

© Tom Tomorrow I like the electoral college maps in the background. Will the voters in this country wake up someday and realize what an absolutely colossal mess they got us into? Or will they be so embarrassed that we will never admit their folly? Or asking the same question in a completely different way, […]

Communicator in Chief?

© Jim Morin Despite Donald Trump tweeting “I am being investigated” this week, one of his lawyers is saying that Trump is not under investigation and blames the media. So, who are we to believe? UPDATE: Speaking of bad communication, when the House first passed the AHCA, Trump and the Republicans praised the bill. Just […]

Unprovoked Attack

The White House has started attacking special counsel Robert Mueller. Why would they do that? Donald Trump continues to say the investigation is a “witch hunt”, and even called it “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history”. As if that weren’t crazy enough, Trump then tweeted: They made up a phony […]

Neophyte

© Kevin Siers Paul Ryan is defending Donald Trump’s attempts to interfere with FBI investigations (commonly called “obstruction of justice”) by claiming that Trump just didn’t know: Of course, there needs to be a degree of independence between [the Department of Justice], FBI and the White House, and a line of communication’s established. The president’s […]

Kansas is not in Kansas anymore

For the last few years, Kansas governor Sam Brownback, with the help of the solidly Republican legislature and the Koch brothers, has been performing a grand conservative experiment of massive tax and spending cuts. Brownback promised “enormous prosperity” but instead the whole state has gone to hell in a handbasket (a handbasket that used to […]

Eric Trump Hates on Democrats

Eric Trump doesn’t hold back, and tells Sean Hannity what he really thinks about Democrats: I’ve never seen hatred like this. To me, they’re not even people. It is so so sad. Morality is just gone. Morals have flown out the window. We deserve so much better than this as a country. It’s so sad […]
