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 […]

Niger = Benghazi?

One of the few things we know about what happened in Niger a few weeks ago is that four American soldiers died. We don’t know why those soldiers were there, what mistakes were made that led to their deaths, why one body was left behind (requiring it to be retrieved). We also don’t know why […]

Morality

© Steve Kelly How much bad news can we take? Either caused by man or nature? Meanwhile, I had hope that we had heard the last from Michele Bachmann when she lost her seat in Congress, but then Donald Trump decided to become the first sitting president in history to talk at the Values Voter […]

Counter-Earth!

© Ruben Bolling This comic is brilliant. I just hope he does more like it. For example, how Republicans are repeatedly and desperately looking for election fraud for which there is absolutely no evidence of existence in order to make it much harder for poor people and students to vote. At the same time ignoring […]

Material

© Tom Tomorrow According to the Fact Checker at the Washington Post, Donald Trump has made 1,318 false or misleading claims over 263 days. How’s that for material? I don’t think I could lie that much even if I tried. Really hard.
