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. […]

Trump Stops Winning

It seems like almost everyone is on to Donald Trump. He finally gave a speech that was designed to be presidential. And his speech in the Middle East was actually presidential. Except that virtually nobody believed a word of it. He said reasonable things about Muslims. But Muslims are not so stupid. As one Muslim […]

Keeping Your Lies Straight?

The White House can’s seem to keep their lies straight. The lies around the firing of FBI director James Comey are just the latest example, but it is a particularly egregious one, and a double whammy. When Trump fired Comey, he released a statement that said he was just following the recommendations of Attorney General […]

Negotiating Failure

It should be obvious to anyone that Donald Trump’s claims to be a skilled negotiator are completely hollow (that’s a euphemism for “lie”). He isn’t even very good at being a bully. His entire history of negotiating is full of examples where he belligerently refused to settle a lawsuit… and then settled. Let’s concentrate at […]

100 WTFs

Rolling Stone has put together a list of 100 WTF moments during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. I guess they had to, because it is difficult to find 100 achievements of Donald Trump, a president that they point out has accomplished less than William Henry Harrison, who died 31 days into his […]

Weaponizing Nonsense

© Tom Tomorrow Ironically, this comic is an example of the very thing it is making fun of. According to Tom Tomorrow: This cartoon was initially inspired by Trump’s “Obama tapped my wires” tweets, and the laughably supportive GOP response. It was supposed to run a couple weeks ago, but I ended up bumping it […]

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. […]

Safety First!

© Lee Judge Donald Trump just can’t stay away from Twitter. On April 15th in honor of tax day, protests were held all across the US (and in several other countries) to encourage Trump to release his tax returns. Once upon a time, Trump promised he would release his tax returns once he was elected, […]

Burning the Truth

© Tom Tomorrow I don’t think anyone believes anything Sean Spicer says any more. But what’s really ironic about this is that in order to support Trump, people have to be willing to not believe anything Spicer, Trump, or anyone else in his administration says. Or else, they have to just pick and choose what […]

Settling for a Loser

In a presidential debate a year ago, when taunted about the Trump University fraud case, Trump flatly stated “I don’t settle cases. I don’t do it because that’s why I don’t get sued very often, because I don’t settle, unlike a lot of other people. You know what, let’s see what happens in court.” Of […]

Do you have regrets yet?

I’m not a huge fan of Bill Maher, but this one is actually pretty funny. Will Trump voters realize that they have been conned? And speaking of being conned, consider the case of the Beristains. Roberto Beristain is a respected businessman who owns a popular restaurant, creates jobs, is a well-loved citizen of his town […]

The Reality Show Just Got Weirder

I have to hand it to Donald Trump, he has put together a reality show as president that is as hard to look away from as a train wreck. Wednesday, Time magazine published an almost verbatim short interview with Trump. The topic is about lying and Trump’s credibility (or, lack thereof). Trump agreeing to this […]

Donald Trumped

Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey testified under oath to Congress two things. First, that there is no evidence to support Donald Trump’s claim that Obama had Donald Trump wiretapped during the presidential campaign. Or, to put that in plain English, Trump lied, and continues to repeatedly lie (since he is allergic to apologizing — or […]

Russian to Judgement

© Tom Tomorrow Concerns about an email server seem almost quaint now, don’t they? But what is missing from this comic is Trump’s cozying up to the Russians, which the Republican-controlled Congress refuses to investigate. Here’s a timeline presenting Everything We Know About Trumpland’s Ties To Russia. It is so amazingly full of smoking guns, […]

Kettle, Meet Pot

We now know that Vice President Mike Pence routinely used an AOL email account to conduct state business when he was governor of Indiana. Seriously. Including during the campaign when he was repeatedly attacking Hillary Clinton for not using a government email account. But wait, there is a difference. While there is no evidence that […]
