Captains Deserting a Sinking Ship?

Donald Trump has managed to do something that no other Republican president in recent history has done. He has alienated the captains of industry. The presidential Strategic and Policy Forum decided to disband themselves. This group included CEOs from GM, JP Morgan Chase, Wal-Mart, Blackstone, PepsiCo, IBM, Ernst & Young, and GE (among others). The […]

Trump: Pants on Fire

Donald Trump makes statements that earn him a “Pants on Fire” rating from PolitiFact 52 times more often than Barack Obama did while he was president. To put this in perspective, that means that Trump tells as many obvious, egregious, ridiculous lies in one week as Obama did in a whole year of his presidency. […]

Ringing in His Ears?

© Tom Tomorrow I’m still not sure if Donald Trump even believes half the stupid lies he tells. And now of course, Trump has become a “madman with nuclear weapons“, threatening to unleash “fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before” against North Korea. Considering that the […]

Spreading Lies

Donald Trump not only lies constantly, he even tries to convince other world leaders to lie for him. But it looks like this is (finally!) catching up with him. The latest polls show that even among his base, support for Trump is starting to crumble. What’s really ironic is that Trump’s approval rating is sinking […]

Wanted: Another Failure to Communicate

© Jack Ohman Unfortunately, this comic left off the current leading candidate for the position of White House communications director, which of course would be Donald Trump himself. Trump obviously wants the job. In fact, it seems to be the only job he actually likes and spends any of his time at. Negotiating treaties? Boring. […]

Tracking Russian Tweets

An interesting new web site tracks 600 Twitter accounts “linked to Russian influence activities online”. This is very interesting because while Russian efforts to spread disinformation has been well documented, until now there was no way to see what “fake news” they were trying to promote. The site, called “Hamilton 68” after the 68th edition […]

The Pardonizer in Chief

© Tom Tomorrow I suspect that sometime in the near future, Donald Trump is going to try to pardon someone he shouldn’t, and all hell will break loose. My only question is whether when that happens, will the Republicans stand up to Trump, or will they roll over?

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 […]

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 […]

Does anyone else get the creeps as much as I do when watching Kellyanne Conway speak?

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 […]

Trump Embarrassed?

Yesterday, Donald Trump finally admitted that he didn’t make any recordings of his conversations with James Comey. This was an issue because Trump tried to threaten Comey by implicating that there might be such recordings. So there are two questions. First, why did Trump wait until yesterday? When Congress asked whether such recordings exist, why […]

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, […]

The Jeff Sessions

First, Conan O’Brien reveals how you can tell when Jeff Sessions may be stretching the truth: Second, Kate McKinnon reveals that her favorite person to impersonate is Sessions, and the facial trick that she uses to do it: My only question is whether Sessions is related to The Grinch.

Who Would Do That?

Seth Meyers hits the nail on the head. Not just about Donald Trump’s crazy behavior, but also who would believe anything Trump says? It is so easy to catch him in a lie, even obvious lies. Who cares if Trump made recordings of his conversations with James Comey (which he almost certainly did not)? You […]
